    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    I don't know about the various schools of acting, but while Brando was a realist actor, I think much the same can be said about DDL. I still see a technical aspect in both actors, unless you can illustrate how they differ.

Also look at how selective he is about roles. He takes a rational and long-term view in role selection. Since doing Lincoln he says he won't act for at least another 5 years because it's too hard for him to top that performance. I think he wants his Lincoln performance to fade from people's minds then he will come out an give another grand performance. I also think there is a little bit of narcissism to him. His acting style is grandiose. I think he wants to be the best actor deep down and he uses his Fe to act more humble than he really is. Isn't Fe prone to fakeness and being nice simply for the sake of being nice? Narcissism is somewhat linked to INFJ's but there not as narcissistic as INTJ's.
    The qualities you mention as being judger-oriented apply to ISFPs really well. I do think it's possible DDL is an intuitive, in which case I'd venture to guess INFP. I just don't see Fe, so if you're seeing it I'd love to know where and when. As for your comments about narcissism, that's all actors. There is narcissism and proneness to fakeness in INFJs, yes, but the acting more humble than he really is ... again, actors are like that.

    I don't think this particular "technique" is specific to type. I know an ISTP who's training for a marathon and he has a special mix to pump himself up.
