    INTP

    ...

    "I'm trying to find myself as a person, sometimes that's not easy to do. Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves."

    "Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you're a human being, you feel, you suffer."

    "It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone."

    "A career is born in public -- talent in privacy."

    "Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul."

    "Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered."

    ...

    Monroe dabbled highly in metaphor/symbolism. Very intelligent woman. Undersold as a sex icon.

    Ive loved her since i was 10. Completely the opposite of the gold-digging dumb blonde she portrayed in her earlier films.

    "I restore myself when i'm alone"
    "My illusions didn't have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third rate i was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes i was wearing inside. But, my God, how i wanted to learn, to change, to improve".
    "My work is the only ground i've ever had to stand on. I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation--but i'm working on the foundation."

    Her great tragedy was that she was marketed in a culture that cared less for her mind than her body.

    It's clear that she wasn't happy being a sex icon. Depression and anxiety eventually drove her towards a lifestyle reliant on prescription drugs and alcohol. She became isolated and unreliable as an actress. Her stock fell. What happened next was exceptionally sad.

    Ironic that her beauty ended up being her greatest obstacle to happiness.

    No way! Definitely an F - perhaps NF.
    INTPs aren't overtly sensual. They are more subtle, e.g. Meryl Streep.

    Marlyn may have been exploited, but as you say, she was an intelligent woman and she exploited her own sexuality too.

    I could see INFP.

    Initially, I debated over whether to apply INxP vs. INTP.

    I came on to ask if she could be NF. Have you ever listened to The Last Interview? Does that give any indication, do you think? How about her acting method (pardon the pun) in her later movies? I guess you have to take into consideration her childhood & formative years with the orphanages & foster homes. And of course, her mentally unstable mother & grandmother.

    I want to say xNTJ. That's the vibery she's giving me. Sweet, sweet vibery.

    She's tough though, she's always acting.
