    I'm going to drag my ISFP friend to it. He owes me a movie. He'll be pleased I didn't force him to a Bollywood film.
    Let me know how your pal receives the movie.

    And you did not just call me girl... LOL

    Use this to administer the self-flagellation (if you must).

    See if I said that, people would complain I'm stating my opinions too factually.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I'm glad I stumbled upon that post, however. I just spent a bit of time watching Jude being interviewed, and in addition to seeing clearly that he uses Fi rather than Fe, I realized that he's a very smart guy & far more than just another pretty face...

    I did not know that. My only previous experience watching him was opposite INFP Jennifer Jason Leigh in eXistenZ...

    After watching a film of his with Mel Gibson (infj) also starring, I got the sense that Downy is an entp. A bit more frenetic and on point than I'm used to seeing in enfps.

    I believe that that Jude Law character is an esfp (see Kelsey Grammer for comparison).

    So I typed Downey as ENTP earlier in the thread, but I didn't bother to go into why. So here goes

    When Downey is visiting the Actors Studio, and he is asked what other profession he would like to attempt, he immediately says, 'Inventor,' which he's said before. No I'm not bringing this up to be cheesy by pointing out the fact that ENTP's are given the title of Inventor. Rather, I cannot imagine any ENFP showing sincere interest in the profession if they really thought it through. As an inventor, your thought life will be dedicated towards things, while ENFP's are generally more concerned with people.

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJqY2yByJ00&feature=related"]Actor's Studio[/YOUTUBE]

    Watch 2:20 - 3:43

    In the same interview, as shown in the clip above, Downey says, "For me, the default position is... well Judd Nelson used to say, "Listen, smile, agree, and then do the fuck whatever you were gonna do anyway." And I still battle with a little bit of this good boy bad boy thing, but humilitiy doesn't have to mean giving up your position or giving up your intuition. It's just really tough cause the worst thing an actor can do is exhaust somebody for the sake of playing, and that's why I said I hate motives. You know, the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but there's no reason to waste a bunch of time squeaking and talking, and by the time you're on a set and it's freaking game day it's not the time to say, 'Well I just don't really understand why my character would even like, be having this relationship with her,' and I'd say, 'Ok cause there's no fucking Act 2, now get back to Act 1, moron.' Wait till I start directing, I might run into some of you and I just want to apologize ahead of time. 'Enough of your bullshit - action! Fuck your feelings!' There's places to go deal with your mom and dad issues, and by the time the directors your mom or dad... 'Now I don't even realize I'm therapizing in the wrong place,' now you're really blowing it. And sometimes they (directors) just stink, if the takes are getting worse and worse and worse and you're taking direction, then the director sucks.

    ...Of the ENFP's I know, I have never known them to be this harsh in bringing a point across, even in jest, as Downey did here.

    Downey is far too fluent verbally, to be ENFP. ENFP's can talk, but shit... the speed with which Downey answers questions, choosing his words so well, no backtracking or humming and hawing and no need to pause to consider a response, screams ENTP.

    Downey isn't mellow enough to be ENFP... his entire manner is too animated, too lively. And his speech is verbose and staccato by nature, quintessentially ENTP.

    Also, I have the feeling that people may be confusing his charm, for ENFP warmth. He's simply friendly, and extremely charistmatic. But warmth, doesn't resonate with me.

    I'm sorry about the lack of function talk. As you can see, I tend to focus on behavior when typing. And I haven't touched on all the reasons why I think he's ENTP. Honestly, I don't think I could put it all into words.

    Anyways, it would be great if some of you could break down some of the reasons why he comes off as ENFP to you cause it's just not sitting right with me. Thoughts?
