Marty Hart

Explain Dominant Color Explain Auxiliary Color

The Red in this spiritual portrait represents Hart's dominant trait, his passion. In Extraverts, the dominant trait is directed outwardly, and spiritual portraits use a long vertical line to represent this, because it is the side of their personality that is most evident. Marty demonstrates this trait in his frequent angry outburts, in both his work and personal lives.

The Yellow in this spiritual portrait represents Hart's auxiliary trait, his pragmatism. In Extraverts, the auxiliary trait is directed inwardly, and spiritual portraits use a horizontal line to represent this. Marty demonstrates this trait when he berates Rust for voicing his poetic, cynical, vague, and sometimes surreal observations.

Marty Hart:
The Story

Marty Hart's high Sensing score — close to 90% — contrasts sharply with Rust Cohle's iNtuition score. This makes miscommunication and misunderstandings inevitable.

It takes only one or two comments from Marty, however, to get Rust to stop sharing his cynical, bizarre, and ultimately rather depressing observations. As an Introvert, Rust has no problem keeping his alienness to himself.

Marty has the sort of personality we would expect to find in a cop: decisive and down-to-earth. His boss and peers appreciate his normalcy and reward it with camaraderie, both in and out of the Homicide Division's office.

Marty has a rich personal and family life — to say the least. This too stands in stark contrast to Rust's bare apartment and frequently inebriated state of existence.

The eight episodes in season one of True Detective are full of twists and turns, as we watch these two main characters fall in and out of their professional relationship. The episodes cover over a decade of their involvement. It's full of flashbacks and it can be a bit difficult keeping track of what happens when.

Although it's tempting, I will not provide any more details, because I do not want to ruin any of it for you, but will rather simply encourage you to find a copy and watch it for yourself.
