He is trying to be very reasonable and warm. And the more introverted INTP's can also likewise give off an Ni vibe (I think Kubrick is a good example even though many will disagree) But still I see an organized/directed vs scattered/searching difference in thought between the two which could be revealing the Te/Ti difference. As for Nolan himself, he prizes efficiency and quickness when filming, pioneers visual effects, likes control in every aspect of filmmaking he can, is cold and aloof but very articulate in interviews, believes that he should be fully responsible for the films he makes ("if I fail, I fail on my own terms") wants to be control of his life/the master of his own fate ("it's definitely something I have a fear of - not being in control of your own life"), and has had an almost meteoric rise in the film industry that's largely due to his tenacity and visionary filmmaking.

. I find that listening to him is very difficult, he talks like a robot (Ti). And one last, weird argument: Almost all his movies have a scene where two characters are discussing something, and then at the end of the discussion one of the characters casually reveals he own the establishment, and we're supposed to think he's incredibly cool because he didn't use it during the disagreement or something. Preeeeeeetty sure he's an INTP. Einstein wanted control over his life too. And he can't be ISTP because a true ISTP would get annoyed watching the type of movies he makes (not too much wild imagination from their part). And of course, INFPs can smile :). ), David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive. First of all, again, I think his subject matter and the structure of his movies is clearly Ne. Find me an INTP who agrees. Thinker-Dreamers correlate best with INTPs (Arthur C Clark) but can also fit with INTJs (like Isaac Asimov). /3) Nevertheless both his interviews, his movies and his method priorities thinking over feeling, and intuition over sensation quite clearly as well. Yes his films are impressive, intelligent, but far from Ni movies. His next movie seems to be some kind of historical war film. I also don't think Haneke and Cronenberg are the only type of INTP artist. illusion/fantasy is a Ne(vs. He basically seems to go about filmmaking as a kind of architect/engineer (INTP). I was being silly before. " I think someone else is using my account name, or perhaps hacked my account. seems well suited for that.

That's something I want to see again. ) or NTPs like Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Magic in the Moonlight. Someone like Carey Mulligan or Benedict Cumberbatch (INFJ) would have handled that a lot better, obviously. Imo you are really, really taking his imagination for granted.

Just to clarify, I was NOT the one who said "Sorry, he is an INTJ. ) sometimes ideas or whole worlds/stories are written or shot after having a dream about it (Lynch, Nolan's Inception, Cameron's Avatar (those last two being lucid dreamers, like the Wachowskis, Salvador Dal. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Acting and Movie Industry characters list.. Nolan definitely looks INTx, although somewhere between INTJ and INTP. There's no Te component in the movies this guy makes, so no INTJ. His movies are to please the crowds (Fe), and emotionally sappy like Interstellar (lack of Fi). in a way less crazy than INTJ, lol. If you look at Ni users, like James Cameron and J. His movies have a certain "dryness" to them that suggests a lack of Fi, and his style of shooting with short shots and inconsistent visual logic (particularly apparent in his fight scenes) suggests a weak or lacking Ni, which would also explain why the dream visuals in Inception are so un-dreamlike. You seem an intelligent person, butterfly. ) So mixing reality and dream/illusion is an Ne theme. s a movie that. ll go through them one by one. ), the Wachowskis films are very NP too and it's the main theme in their "The Matrix" trilogy : Dream/illusion/imagination is a Ne theme.

Inarritu (ENxP), Terrence Malick (INFP), Woody Allen (ISTP), and so on; that has nothing to do with type. From interviews he has that INxx look about him, of being somewhat distanced from physicality (sort of sleepy/dreamy), that I don't associate with ISTPs. Fincher could be either Ni-dom, actually, but I. Anyway, based on everything I've said and all the evidence I've shown, Nolan is Te-Fi, not Fe-Ti. Fe is more "mouth smile" while Fi smile is called "eyes smile", which I find very moe. INTJ - Goofy, earnest, but lacking in conviction and force. All filmmakers want to fail on their own terms. Movies directed by INTPs are super dry and shocking to watch (Haneke, Cronenberg). All filmmakers want to fail on their own terms. and the mix with Ti (which predisposes them to science for example) makes science-fiction the perfect match between imagination and logic. Anyway, I don't mean to put words in your mouth. - This is how: "Films are subjective. I think it's useful to make the comparison to David Cronenberg (INTP). Same with Nolan, having a "vision" doesn't equal being Ni dom. Note also constant eyebrow shakes when talking, indicative of Ne.

I imagine if anything would be hard for an INTP it would be leading all these people, but that should be even harder for an INFP, and there are INFP directors. com/23240/a-sneak-peek-at-christopher-nolans-chilly-cerebral-inception/. Morgan Freeman said he does, at most, three takes before getting irritated. illusion" is the theme of his career. v=dyHPLoHkS1I I definitely think he has a very Fe-like approach to interviews. "Nolan likes to shoot fast. If you're just going to argue based on your preconceived notions about type while ignoring the objective definitions, then your arguments hold zero weight. They have somewhat similar demeanor, but their films are nothing alike at all. Ventus413 : He makes geek movies (from a Batman trilogy to space movies), "reality vs. Yes, but that doesn. He definitely has Fe. Here goes Moolfreet with his awful arguments again based off stereotypes residing within his own head. David Fincher is an INTJ and he. XNTPs are, far more than XNTJs, pioneers in technology. "@Moolfreet: nearly all of your arguments are based on false stereotypes. Fincher and Kubrick are the kind to be tyranic on set, taking hundreds of takes before being satisfied. Thinker-Dreamers are interested in potentializing their imagination but confined to scientific or rationalistic thought patterns. And Ti doms are known to be the less expressive types "he barely even smiled back" that's often what's very striking in TPs and especially in IXTPs, the fact that they're so oblivious to how things work socially (inferior Fe)I'd actually say he's INTP, not INTJ. but Interstellar spent lots of time being scientifically accurate. And that Memento movie about fogetting the past, aka non existant Si; clearly INFJ in this case. I think someone like the writer Borges is closer in tone to Nolan. Therefore INTP (strong Si) is out of the question. thedailybeast. but the thing for me that is absolutely unifying is. One of the reasons I didn't reply to you before is I don't agree with a single one of your typings (except I.

That frees me, finding a mathematical model or a scientific model. com/articles/2011/02/15/christopher-nolans-inception-oscar-snub. Alright, other Zeego, what the hell are you doing. In terms of the tone of the film, it looks at where we are as a people and has a universality about human experience. I'll also say I think the more clearly introverted INTJ's repress their Te and give off a Ti vibe (Nolan may be a good example). "pioneers visual effects" XNTPs are, far more than XNTJs, pioneers in technology. There's no way an ISFJ would appear this distant, or make movies complicated on purpose. but Interstellar spent lots of time being scientifically accurate. And when you don't feel it, that's the only time I feel like I'm wasting my time at the movies. With that said:. Uh, uh, do an INFP smile : ). In addition, Todd McGowan, a respected film analyst, analyzed all of Nolan's films and concluded that, more than any other filmmaker, Nolan had devoted his films' themes to the nature of illusion, the illusion of filmmaking as an art form, and how the subjective brings about the objective/the truth comes out of the lie. All movies have plot holes. http://img004. He's no INFJ either. Also note how quickly he gets technical, talking about what he wanted to achieve with the different type of sets, etc. Talking about smiles, I think Nolan has Fi smile. I'm starting to think he's either ISTx or INTJ. Just look at him. I'm very surprised by the INTP votes; he's extremely strongly INTJ. This is something that generally makes me very skeptical of the INTJ typing: Nolan just simply seems very unimposing, "chill". It's normally some new type of weirdness in each of Nolan's movies which is experienced through a Fe-ish group of characters. He loves writing stories. The topics are unusual (like a dream heist movie) and he is always subverting, playing with viewer expectation. And if I didn't make INTJ over INFJ clear enough, he's a tenacious and expedient filmmaker who is never belabored by over-analysis or over-intellectualization. s only interesting when no humans are speaking or even on screen. It's just like what GRRM does with Tolkien-esque fantasy. Making Batman into a symbol of authoritarianism is subversion. ), Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth.

That video had a reverse effect on me. "is cold and aloof but very articulate in interviews" I would have written boring but that's my opinion :p I find that listening to him is very difficult, he talks like a robot (Ti). s no fucking around on set. com/images/175871075/large. Did you write that. - How does that preclude INTJ. I think it's more like that he was commissioned for Batman movies due to his skills, and he was able to develop that "Se" side. I want to feel that the people who made that film think it's the best movie in the world. "And his films have quite a few plot holes that are there because he sacrificed logical consistency for the sake of poetic grandeur" You mean the movies he takes years to write. I have the impression it's a pretty open profession, as long as you are making money. Every person’s preference can be found on a spectrum, so just choose the letter you identify with most..

The ways dreams are chosen to be portrayed is one choice within a context full of wacky choices. So in your world, everyone you. A great believer in the level of creative concentration enforced by the pressures of time and money, he maintains a focused energy on set, starting at 7am and finishing at 7pm, with a break for lunch. Loyal to their peers and to their internal value systems, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. Detached and analytical, they excel at finding solutions to practical problems.. Ti and Ni >>> ISTP. What I mean by that is that there is a slight, maybe irrational conservative streak in him. He is a consistently groundbreaking director who is always doing something different. info/people/annie_clark_aka_st_vincent/annie_clark_aka_st_vincent_sweet_smile_ehVlwBO. Fi users smile more genuinely, mostly not as wide as Fe smile, but with emotions in their eyes. Also, apparently, at a convention, someone came up to him and told him he was his favorite director, and he barely even smiled back (his wife, Emma Thomas, beamed much more overtly and enthusiastically, and she wasn't even the one the guy was complimenting). He loves writing stories, his caracters are functionnal (who said superficial. Inception for example was exploration of a single idea in depth, that movie's subject matter was much more narrow than Matrix-like movie. This is exactly the kind of disrespect for titles, money, etc. Whereas I'm pretty sure that were he obscure everyone would be loving him soooo much and thinking he is soooo deep. I think his strength as a filmmaker comes primarily from his ability to analyze and think things through (Ti), as well as his ability to be pragmatic and find creative solutions to problems (Ne). The difference is that Cronenberg is drawn to horror whereas Nolan tends towards sci-fi-ish action thrillers, and there is a long tradition of movies that take you into strange and new worlds, like Star Wars or superhero movies, making money. Saying Cameron is XNTJ because he is assertive and directive is only TJ stereotyping and it's the only way you can come up with this typing because there is no way he isn't Ne>Ti. "wants to be control of his life/the master of his own fate ("it's definitely something I have a fear of - not being in control of your own life")" Einstein said the same thing and he's the archetypical INTP. It's probably having to deal with so many people that Nolan's Fe seems so refined after all these years. He's had like twenty jobs, is a scientist/engineer/inventor, makes sci-fi movies and even dreams one, was maried five times, and he is a fucking deep-sea explorer.

What is the best option for the MBTI type of Christopher Nolan? What about enneagram and other personality types?. @hello to: I disagree with the notion that he's "too inside the system to be INTP". Hoytema told me. no, not necessarily; that quote suggests that Nolan values completing the film using his methodology according to his vision above all else, even if it means failure. It's a certain etiquette that comes in that culture that makes individuals seem more disciplined and proper. Yes, but that doesn. Especially when it comes to MBTI. - How does that preclude INTJ. So he's been INFJ since day one. Also, how important is for him to get credibility form the audience considering his future films; an INTJ would be independent and free of all this. But you're above that I guess. And his films have quite a few plot holes that are there because he sacrificed logical consistency for the sake of poetic grandeur, further implying he's an Ni dom rather than a Ti dom (or really any Ti type). Here's two articles that mention his aloofness, including the example I wrote above:. XNTP directors, because they're NPs like world-building, where they can express their imagination, possibilities, or complex or bizarre worlds or characters (like Douglas Adams and his "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy") I'm not saying that an ESFJ can't like Doctor Who, but come on.

(your own words) / So here, I explained my "stereotyping" :) And about "there are objective definitions of functions you know". He carries himself nothing like an INTJ. Even more INTJ than James Cameron. : I think Cameron is an ENTP, and that it's a clue to his type. How are we not in front of an INTP. He then called him a "thoroughly Hegelian filmmaker" because all of his films align themselves ideologically with INTJ philosopher G. Some of that could be interpreted as Te.

I find that listening to him is very difficult, he talks like a robot (Ti). Even Cronenberg was pretty big at some point in his career though. This guy is clearly an INFJ.
