    What makes you think N and J? She seems like a textbook Pe-dom at least.

    ESFP 7w6 are not "incredibly stubborn". Actually, I'll stick on my initial guess of ENFJ 3w2. It's coherent with both stubborn and maternal. ENFJ 3w2 are dazzling and exuberants too.


    You're right about anxiety. She also look more straight type A and place work before the recreative. A characteristic of J. She could be 6w7, but 3s can look anxious too. Also:

    She's not about investing her real emotions, but selling the right emotions, the purpose of Type 3 and Fe. Also, an Fi user would invest raw, immediate emotion into the acting, and feel emotionally drained at the end ofthe day. But as a 3, Jennifer Lawrence supress har ability to feel emotions when she's working, and sell the right emotions to the audience.


    So she's ENFJ 3w2, not ESFP 7w6. She's more like Reese Witherspoon, not like Cindy Lauper or Megan Fox.

    She screams ENFP to me. Screams it.

    Actually, I'm thinking now she's INFP who seems like an ENFP in public. I read some more about her, and she proclaimed her introversion, and it makes sense. In group interviews, she typically is quiet. She also tends to drink before her other interviews to calm her nerves which is why she seems so loud and gregarious.

    Sorry, I didn't reply to this before, so I will now. I'm inclined to think her 6w7 sx now based on other things I've seen (and read about 6s). So 3-like characteristics would be natural then, as 3 is the stress point of 6. Also the calmness of mind could be integration to 9.

    So she's ENFJ 3w2, not ESFP 7w6. She's more like Reese Witherspoon, not like Cindy Lauper or Megan Fox.
    No I still think ESFP. She's got that bubbly exuberance and spontaneity which doesn't fit J at all; nor does she have the sort of measured response Js would have to questions. She just blurts out answers half the time.

    Besides I see Fi in her, not Fe.

    I don't see Intuition. Did you guys watch the first interview posted? It's like she repeatedly says in not so many words, "Stop trying to over-complicate it. I don't think, I just do" - it's like that instinctive, "it is what it is", Se mentality. And I think any appearance of introversion is just nerves, not reserve.

    IDK, maybe I should ask @Marmie Dearest for backup - What do you think? Do you see Se dom based on the 2 interviews?

    Haha, we were talking about this at Personality Cafe (I go there too), but I'll just repeat myself.

    I'm sure she's an introvert now. Here what Jennifer said about herself in this interview with The Telegraph:
    "I spent a lot of time alone. My mom used to worry about me. She was prom queen, always socializing, and I never wanted to go to parties and that scared her." Even now, she says, "I have to be alone to recharge. I’ve only ever been able to live by myself. I can be at a party for two hours and be the loudest person there but then I have to go be by myself."
    I'm pretty sure she's iNtuitive. She definitely has Ne, which she's talked about in interviews before (this one, if you're interested). I think all that Ne is what makes her such a talented actress. Also, she's talked about her "big picture" view before (I can't find the interview right now), and she's quite future-oriented much of the time. (I can go dig for examples if you want, but I'm feeling kind of lazy.)

    Also from the Telegraph interview:
    One of her earliest [auditions] was for the lead in a new Disney series. "[In one audition I was] asked if I could sing, and I was like, 'No. To be honest I don’t think I’m a Disney kind of kid.' When my parents picked me up they yelled at me so badly. They were spending a lot of money giving me the chance to do this--and I had the potential to be on a television show that would obviously pay for everything and I was like, 'Nah.'"
    I'm still rather new to MBTI, but isn't the above an example of Fi? She wants to work on projects that already align with her values.

    She's too messy and impulsive to be a Judger. Actually, I am quite sure her boyfriend is an ENFJ, which would make sense that she is an INFP.

    She fits the INFP picture to me and reminds me a lot of my INFP best friend. Maternal, wise, spontaneous, cynical, artistic....

    I don't think Ne helps much with acting. Se helps to facilitate the lack of Fe in ESFPs, which helps them to portray a wide variety of emotions and roles. My ENFP thinks she's a great actress, but she can't portray emotions very well or believably. She's a great public speaker though.

    I'm sure she's an introvert now. Here what Jennifer said about herself in this interview with The Telegraph:
    Yeah, but I've read other articles (OK I admit it, I'm a Hunger Games fan ) where she, and those that know her, say she's loud, exuberant and outgoing - even the article says she's "straight talking" - none of which is INFP-like at all. Maybe she was referring to Fe style of sociability?

    I think one of the most revealling articles on her was in Rolling stone. I recommend it but it's hard to find though...

    Edit: I found it on one of her fan-sites:

    Rolling Stone Magazine - America's Kick-Ass Sweetheart -Part 1
    Rolling Stone Magazine - America's Kick-Ass Sweetheart -Part 2

    I'm pretty sure she's iNtuitive. She definitely has Ne, which she's talked about in interviews before (this one, if you're interested). I think all that Ne is what makes her such a talented actress.

    Well, SeFi is just as talented at acting. One of the names for ESFP is "the Perfomer". And I don't see her as future oriented - I think she's much more geared for the present.

    I'm still rather new to MBTI, but isn't the above an example of Fi? She wants to work on projects that already align with her values.
    Yes, this is very much Fi. Not simply adhering to personal values but also in the sense that she can't help but be way too honest. The latter is particularly a characteristic of Auxiliary Fi: that way-too-much-information thing that EXFPs do. Again, read the Rolling Stone article for more evidence of this.

    Yes, I had read the Rolling Stone interview before. (I'm not really a Hunger Games fan; just a really big fan of Jennifer Lawrence herself, being a pretty big film buff. Haha.)

    I feel like her being straight-talking is more a result of her upbringing or other factors...but I could be wrong. I don't know, I mean, I'm an INFJ, and I'm very talkative with anyone who will listen, and I'll say pretty much anything as long as I'm not hurting anyone's feelings because I adore honesty. I've always been very assertive, since I was a little girl. So who knows?

    Hmm. I'm a bit tripped up. I don't have much Fi, but that whole way-too-much-information thing is my bad habit. I actually did it today. I met this new coworker, and I sensed very quickly that I could trust her, and so I got very excited that she would listen to me. I ended up talking her ear off and saying things I probably shouldn't have. And then I felt guilty and started worrying afterwards. Maybe this habit is just the result of me aching for someone to listen to me. Haha.

    I'll find this later, but Jennifer said that in a relationship she's at first guarded and reserved (which also made me think of her being introverted).

    I see where you're coming from, but I still think she is iNtuitive. She has talked about her intuition helping her act in other interviews before (like this one). And grr, I can't find those scans of her talking about her "big picture" view on life. I'll keep looking for them. I found this quote however:
    I feel pretty mature. I keep thinking I'm going to grow up more and then I'm going to really understand.
    That seems rather N-y to me, her believing that she will know more in the future than she does now. I recall some other moments of her musing about her future in interviews. Like, once in an article, she was wondering what kind of person she was going to be in the future -- like she was worried she was going to turn into some crazy brainwashed actor like many others have in Hollywood. And in another interview once, she said that before the Hunger Games came along, she'd imagined herself to do a string of indie movies more and then settle down once she hit thirty or so to have a family (if I remember correctly).

    I feel like the fact she calls Winter's Bone a "beautiful" movie also points towards her being N. I just forced my ISFJ mother and ESFP brother to watch it, and they both hated it and called it stupid. It is a rather unorthodox movie, but I believe that it's beautiful, backwardly.

    There's also another quote I remember of Jennifer calling this scene she had in The Burning Plain in which she and her boyfriend lay in their parents' bed in their parents' clothing (I think -- I haven't seen that movie in a while) "sick and poetic." I feel like a Sensor might on impulse call it just "sick."

    I don't know if this is related to S or N, but I was reading more of her articles, and Jennifer talks about fate a few times. Here's a quote:
    I'm a big believer in what's meant to be will happen. I've watched fate play out so wonderfully without me being in control of it.
    Also, I feel like the fact that fame scares her attests to her introversion.... I could be wrong, but isn't such a desire for privacy an attribute of introversion? Hmm. In her Marie Claire interview, she says how she always wanted to be the center of attention as a kid, which threw me off for a second. But then I thought about it more, and I realized I always obnoxiously wanted to be the center of attention as a kid, too, and yet at the same time, it was easy for me to be alone.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty convinced that Jennifer is an INFP who seems like an ENFP or ESFP in public. There are lots of introverts who seem extroverted around other people (myself included -- actually, I'd say most people who are acquainted with me think I'm an ENFJ or ESFJ). My brother is an ESFP, along with one of my closest friends -- I feel like I would know it if Jennifer were one as well, you know? But who knows.

    Also, thanks for being nice and civil about our disagreements! I've been on some other forums where that wasn't the case....

    I'm a big film buff too! And increasingly a Jennifer Lawrence fan. I remember seeing her in Winter's Bone back before she became super famous (it was in July 2010 I believe) and being blown away by her performance.

    I feel like her being straight-talking is more a result of her upbringing or other factors...but I could be wrong.
    Could be, but I still think you'll struggle to find a IXFP that is straight talking on a regular basis. Usually we only do that when we get pushed to the limit.

    Hmm. I'm a bit tripped up. I don't have much Fi, but that whole way-too-much-information thing is my bad habit. I actually did it today.

    I think this is a little different. It sounds like you connected with the person and let your guard down. What I meant about EXFPs is that they just randomly blurt out borderline inappropriate things, that totally throw people off-guard - sometimes it can be what everyone else is thinking (and never dare to say) but said in a completely unexpectedly frank (and usually, hilarious) way. It gives them this sort of unassuming, impulsive, goofball characteristic, which most people tend to find rather disarming and endearing (myself included ).

    I'll find this later, but Jennifer said that in a relationship she's at first guarded and reserved (which also made me think of her being introverted).

    There are a few good points here, but you have over-simplified aspects of MBTI and have included things that aren't really related to type. Being a Sensor doesn't mean you never think about the future, lack imagination and don't think intuitively.

    From the video you linked, the way she and Debra Granik described her acting style was "more instinctual" - which to me sounds more like a Se-Ni approach (or the reverse - ie. either SFP or NFJ) and seeing as Judging and Fe seem wrong for her, I'm inclined to stick to SFP. But then it could just be the result of the difficulty you see with Fi-users in expressing a complex inner emotional process.

    Also, thanks for being nice and civil about our disagreements! I've been on some other forums where that wasn't the case....
    Well, so we should be civil - there's no reason why we can't disagree and be pleasant towards one another.

    Besides if everyone agreed what would the point be having a discussion at all.
