    Bullshit. An ENFP could say the same exact thing.

    This is also total bullshit. I could easily see many NF women expressing this sentiment.

    Marilyn Monroe created a character, an image. Quel surprise that the image would closely resemble an SFP since she was a sex symbol. :rolleyes2:

    I really have to tip my hat to Marilyn - she's thoroughly fooled young men about her real self even 50 years after her death.

    Just go look up a list of her quotes. xSFP is pretty clear. That's all I have to say about it.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I suspect you type MM as an NFP because you empathize with the Fi you share.

    I can relate. Their are times when I read interviews with...Roger Federer, for example, and become so struck by the internal similarities between our mutual Fi and basic intelligence that I "forget" that his Fi is housed and expressed in Se form while I am an Ne...

    Here's Miller on his experience...as After The Fall describes, the attraction was very much what one would expect when an INTJ becomes entranced with an SFP:

    Marilyn Monroe's somatotype was Endomorph: 4.0 Mesomorph: 4.0 Ectomorph: 4.0 which puts her in the center of the somatotype chart below. She most likely is an ENFP.

    Did you see this? Curious as to the general consensus of her type after these "revelations"...

    Fragments of Marilyn

    When Marilyn Monroe died, she left her personal possessions to her acting teacher, Lee Strasberg. After Strasberg’s death, the collection passed to his widow, Anna, who some years later discovered among the dresses, pictures, and other miscellany a cache of personal writings. This week, Farrar, Straus & Giroux publishes these in “Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters.” The writings are intimate, unfiltered, and often unsettling:

    On the stage—I will
    not be punished for it
    or be whipped
    or be threatened
    or not be loved
    or sent to hell to burn with bad people
    feeling that I am also bad.
    or be afraid of my genitals being
    or ashamed
    exposed known and seen—

    They come to us in facsimiles of the originals, in Monroe’s messy handwriting (with typed transcripts on the facing pages), complete with spelling and grammatical errors, giving them a vulnerability characteristic of Monroe on film:

    For someone like me its wrong to go through thorough self analisis—I do it enough in thought generalities enough. Its not to much fun to know yourself to well or think you do—everyone needs a little conciet to carry them through & past the falls.

    This is heartbreaking, not least for feeding the myth of the dumb, blond, “sweet angel of sex” (as Norman Mailer once put it). But Monroe also emerges in these pages as a surprisingly strong writer, capable of conveying very clearly and beautifully, in vivid images, her own pain. In a letter to a psychiatrist during a hospital stay in 1961, she writes, “Just now when I looked out the hospital window where the snow had covered everything is a kind of muted green. The grass, shabby evergreen bushes—though the trees give me a little hope—the desolate bare branches promising maybe there will be spring and maybe they promise hope. Did you see ‘The Misfits’ yet? In one sequence you can perhaps see how bare and strange a tree can be for me.” She also comes across as a lover of the written word. In this month’s Vanity Fair, Sam Kashner writes:

    Several photographs taken of Marilyn earlier in her life—the ones she especially liked—show her reading. Eve Arnold photographed her for Esquire magazine in a playground in Amagansett reading James Joyce’s Ulysses. Alfred Eisenstaedt photographed her, for Life, at home, dressed in white slacks and a black top, curled up on her sofa, reading, in front of a shelf of books—her personal library, which would grow to 400 volumes. In another photograph, she’s on a pulled-out sofa bed reading the poetry of Heinrich Heine. If some photographers thought it was funny to pose the world’s most famously voluptuous “dumb blonde” with a book—James Joyce! Heinrich Heine!—it wasn’t a joke to her. In these newly discovered diary entries and poems, Marilyn reveals a young woman for whom writing and poetry were lifelines, the ways and means to discover who she was and to sort through her often tumultuous emotional life.

    One of the more remarkable things “Fragments” does is give us Marilyn Monroe the way we’ve always wanted her: as someone, finally, have-able. This is both satisfying and, ultimately, disturbing. In one entry, Monroe recounts a dream in which she is being operated on by Strasberg and her analyst. When they cut her open, Monroe writes, “there is absolutely nothing there … devoid of every human living feeling thing.” This book feels a little like this sort of cutting open, only in addition to this fear of emptiness there are many other “living feeling things” inside. This is a far cry from “Boo-boo-be-doo”:

    Yeah, I think ISFP.. Although I could it all reversed and see her as a kind of overwhelmed, loner ESFJ. Her F like sentiments and expressions are out for display either way.
