I have been watching Daffy Duck ( alot more intersting than Donald Duck ) for 50 years. The orginal Daffy was Idiosyncatic Style, hence the daffy part.... Later he was made over into a totally selfish, self centered character! I would type him Self Confident-Dramatic, a Riso 3W2. Daffy could never be mistaken for a 2W3, he would never dream of helping others! Remember the classic Daffy line: " mine, it's all mine ".... The only Vigiliant part of Daffy, is his fear that somebody else might get part of the loot. Rich

> Originally he acted as being paranoid, Daffy challenged his opponents without fear and faced them in a state of frenzy. Tormenting them through a series of unpredictable, manic action he undermined their sanity and drove them to dementia.Though he is still quite sadistic and neurotic, over the years he has matured somewhat. He has matured in a character that plans his actions. Greedy for money, fame and power and amoralistic he would do anything to achieve his goals.That huge ego of his assures him that he deserves any victory he gets. Though quite intelligent and inventive, unfortunately he doesn't have much self-control and more level-headed and equaly intelligent opponents, like Bugs Bunny, can use this to manipulate him and ridicule him. However, it doesn't matter how many times he ends up as the looser, the little black duck has enough courage and determination to start all over again on his way to success.
