Due to ol' [Russ soon to be] hosting the VMAs (MTV Video Music Awards) I thought it would be pertinent if I attempt to type the fella. Initially I saw him as an ESFP, however he has a very strong Ni. It seems to be his dominant function upon listening to his BBC radio show. Bearing in mind he is a diagnosed manic-depressive, I can see him being an attention seeking INFJ. But that's only mho.
Also, can anyone type his buddy Matt Morgan? I'd say ISFP. He's very Pish and he says he wants to remain in the shadows (ie not be famous) which suggests I. He seems to be a Feeler, and my reason for thinking he is a Sensor is his love of metal ie Guns N Roses etc.

i agree with russell as esfp and morgan isfp. theyre really alike in their humor but yeah, morgan seems much more sedate... of course nearly anyone would seem more sedate than russell :P
russell does seem to be a decently developed esfp. i remember the one serious interview (great interview btw, 5 parts all on youtube) i've seen him do and when he was younger he used to be completely wild and his comedy was completely inappropriate. only after his big crash with drugs did he start to mature a bit and come more into the spotlight.
anyways, nice to see other russell brand fansI'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life.

Russ is an ENFP - so lets not even debate that.
However, overreaction or complete f*cking overreaction?
20,000 complaints to the BBC. That must have blown the server up (I built it so I should know).
I'm down with that.

Haha, I've seen his stand up before, and he's hilarious, but I didn't connect the actor to the comedian. All the more talented, I guess.

I can see why people think he must be a P, but remember he's also been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. (In fact it seems pretty likely to me that he's one of the many ADHD + depression-prone adults who've been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder over the past few decades, and I don't think he'd mind people speculating that as he himself seems reluctant to unequivically own the BP label when confronted on the issue.)
I thought of him in fact because I think he's a fine example of a J with ADHD. Look at the book chapter linked to in this post. He has subclinical/borderline obsessive-compulsive tendencies and a long history of self-rejecting thoughts and behaviour. I agree with the author that these may be contributed to by having a natural preference for external order, results and reliability that one is failing to produce in their life due to the neuro-cognitive deficits of ADHD. Some obsessive-compulsions reduce anxiety by providing a sense of control that is relatively simple to bring about, not requiring anything as difficult as temporal awareness, mental sequencing and working memory.
It may also be tempting to type people with very addictive personalities as SPs, but addictions and drug abuse are strongly correlated with untreated ADHD, and tend in these cases to be of the self-medicating, helps-me-get-through-the-day-without-wanting-to-die variety rather than the hedonistic, party-enhancing variety (and as such far more often lead to functional impairment and addiction, and earlier on in life). Russell has described his drug and alcohol abuse as being overwhelmingly designed for the former purpose, right from the beginning. Sexual excesses are associated with it too. The chemical rush of orgasm makes the brain more calm and alert for a while.

Abstract hyperbolic intelligent waffle. He is a twat, but i like him."We knew he was someone who had a tragic flaw, that's where his greatness came from"
