    confirmation bias

    i beat the intj word limit

    yeah, probably the less like the character's personality we are, the more objective we can be. though i feel like i have a fairly easy time recognizing ENFP musicians on the spot. assuming i'm right, though i'd bet on a lot of them. but i think we like identifying people like us because that means our type has the capacity to be like that. it reflects on us. like natalie portman, she's awesome, who doesn't want to be her type?

    Typing actors/characters should be taken as a good-humoured practice, not an absolute anyway. That goes for other typings as well.
    agreed.

    i'd like to throw it out there that i am in no way biased in typing rachel mcadams. i really don't find her to be that great of an actress, and outside of mean girls really don't have a following towards her. i just saw a girl who seemed a bit uncomfortable when speaking in interviews, and just picked up more F than T. don't know why, but i just felt that about her.

    It's possible it is difficult because none of us actually know the actors in real life.

    I think at least in part this is because the only persons thoughts and feelsings we can ever directly experience are our own. Frequently, people use themselves (or at least their perception of themselves) as a yard stick to measure other people.

    A lot of people can't even type themselves properly. Typing fictional characters or even people you know in real life can be wrought with fallacy.

    But I admit.. it's tons of fun

    I typed that McAdams girl by face, though. You forgot to mention that...
