    Rom, i happen to have been thinking about it since at the time i watched the movie, i just completed a training course where we discussed the Hermmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) thinking preferences. The HBDI features 4 quadrants representing a person’s prefered thinking style i.e. Analytical (blue), Sequential (green), Interpersonal (red) and Imaginative (yellow).

    I figure Batman tended towards the ‘analytical’ and the Joker (as i posted) was more of the ‘interpersonal’ (red) tpe. And as the movie showed, ‘interpersonal’ beats ‘analytical’. As Batman himself kept saying in the movie, ‘The Joker won’. Since then, The Joker has been my new benchmark as far as empathy is concerned.

    While the obvious may be the analytical and interpersonal quadrants, the yellow quadrant which represents risk taking and out of the box thinking, probably served the joker as well. Batman while logical, also was known for being more conservative and planning (green quadrant. Definitely a tug of war between the right and left brains.
