    Default CelebrityTypes.com: Feedback welcome

    Old-timers on the board will remember my arduous efforts at typing celebrities. The goal was always to provide an accurate and evocative illustration of the 16 types for newcomers, an illustration I myself missed when I first learned about MBTI four years ago. I actually lost steam on the project but then Blackwater took over (yeah, I'm saying an ENTP picked up the slack for an INTJ!) and the result is:


    Your constructive feedback on the execution of the idea is very welcome. How do you think value can be added to the site to further drive home to newcomers the flesh and blood manifestations of the 16 types?

    Please take your disagreement with individual typings elsewhere so as not to derail this thread. There are threads in the Popular Culture and Type subforum for a lot of the actors (and some of Blackwater's philosophers) and you are welcome to start new ones for the rest.

    Here's an excerpt of the text I had on the placeholder site:

    Why is it (mostly) actors?

    First, holding profession constant makes for fairer comparison of types.

    Second, actors' personalities are easily researchable because they have to do interviews to promote their movies.

    Finally, actors act, but the roles they take on successfully are often closer to home than they themselves are perhaps aware of. In the words of Anthony Minghella as quoted by Edward Norton:

    "[E]very actor has a certain elasticity and every role has a certain elasticity, and some actors have more elasticity than others and some roles have more elasticity than others. And if the elasticity of the actor overlaps the elasticity of the role, then you have a match (...)"

    As such, the best performances of an actor are usually illustrative of (aspects of) his/her type.

    Add a comments section, so we can debate the types directly on the site.

    Your typings suck. You don't know what you're doing. How's that for constructive?

    EDIT: Took another glance. You really don't know what you're doing. Lots of blatant, absurd mistakes there.

    Also, "holding profession constant makes for fairer comparison of types" is not true in my experience.

    I don't think your criticism falls within the realm of "constructive."

    The typings weren't that bad. Some of them seemed pretty accurate to me.

    I don't see Kim Kardashian, this post is invalid.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    Read my Blog.
