Along with the main characters of Star Trek, Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully were among the first profiles and images I developed back in the 1980s. Learning and seeing how these opposite personalities look proved — to me, anyway — my idea was a good one!
Of course, I didn't need to talk to very many people to figure out the world at the time was not quite ready for this idea. Fortunately, though, things have changed quite a bit since then!– Tom W. Hartung, December, 2018.
The deep image of Mulder's personality shows he is open to new ideas — and can sometimes be surprisingly passionate about them.
In contrast, the solid, no-nonsense portrait of Scully's steadfast personality shows she is decisive, down-to-earth, and prefers reason to passion.
The profiles and images of the three main characters in the Original Star Trek series — Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, and Captain Kirk — were among the first I did back in the 1980s, so it makes sense they should be among the first posted on this site.
In addition to showing the contrast between Spock's coolness and McCoy's warmth, the images show McCoy is both more outgoing and open-minded than Spock. These qualities help make McCoy seem much more
human than Spock, who in contrast can be calculating, a bit aloof, and quite stubborn.
These images of the personalities of Science Officer Mr. Spock and Chief Medical Officer Dr. McCoy from the Original Star Trek series clearly show how their differing temperaments cause them to frequently be in conflict with one another.
Spock's overwhelmingly Green image shows he is consistently very cool, logical, and decisive. It stands in stark contrast to the warm, open image of the amiable, sympathetic, and emotional McCoy.
