I actually got rid of using Alice and Journey. I narrowed down the tales I am using to the following:
- Sleeping Beauty
- Robin Hood
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
- The Little Mermaid (plus Thumbelina parts; Hans Christian Andersen)
- Beauty and the Beast
- Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves
- The Three Spinners
- The Snow Queen
- Hua Mulan
- Hansel and Gretel
- Iron John
- A Thousand and One Arabian Nights (frame story)
Fairy tales are usually short, which is why I am using them instead of literature; lots of room for interpretation, and easy to get the jist of the story. The only exception is Tarzan; but it holds the #2 place for "literature most used for film," right behind Dracula. It also fits ATU 535.
The reason I am using 16 is because I am associating a character from each tale to an MBTI. I needed tales which either had protagonists with very distinct personalities (ie Mulan, Tarzan, Cinderella) or ones that had completely un-described protagonists which I could make up personalities/backgrounds for to fit MBTIs. I also wanted to diversify based on place of origin for the tale and ATU classification.
BTW, Beauty and the Beast is technically literature as well, although we regard it as a fairy tale an indeed "beastly husbands" is an ATU classification. Many scholars believe the story has roots in the Greek mythology of Cupid and Psyche. Lots of interesting history, I'm totally nerding out over this stuff
