    ISFP?

    I think she could have been an ISFP. I've read quite a lot about her, and find many things in common with her.
    It's rare that people look beyond the surface, and are quick to assume, give labels. Most see what they want to see. It's sometimes a cause of hidden saddness in a lot of ISFP's. I think it was true for Marilyn too.

    I'm watching a movie with her right now and it's very difficult not to mix her on-screen persona with her off-screen persona.

    Those quotes don't show any trace of her being a T- rather, as an NF. Emotionally complex, very smart, imaginative, metaphorical. INFP for sure.

    "Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one."

    "First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress."

    "A sex symbol becomes a thing. I just hate to be a thing."

    How exactly can someone like Marilyn Monroe so far removed from being a T actually get typed as one? She's an archetypal INFP.

    Just read the new Marilyn biography. I'm going to say ENFJ for her, a very strong gut feeling.

    I would guess ISFP, but I don't know that much about her as a person ( she definitely had a public persona....). These quotes do sound very, very NF idealist, and heavy on the Fi. I can see INFP from them, maybe ENFP. Honestly, I just don't see INFPs being so overtly sexy, haha . I know it's partly an act, but she obviously exudes some natural sensuality.

    Night is correct.
    She is INTP. Close to INFP.
    I read her autobiography. She is a thinker. A good writer, too.
