    Default Are extraverted intuitives better actors in general?

    Nearly all of the actors and actresses that I know of are extraverted intuitives. Is acting simply a better job for Es and Ns than it is for Is and Ss? Tell me what you think...it would also be good if you could list a few actors that are Is or Ss.

    N's like to pretend. Extraverts like to be center-stage.

    Preferred extraverted intuition, I submit from personal experience, is an advantage while improvising.

    Here are the types that I believe some actors have that do not fit into Ne:

    Tom Cruise - ESTP
    Clint Eastwood - ISTP
    Robert De Niro - ISTJ
    Reese Witherspoon - INFJ (or maybe ENFJ)
    Jack Nicholson - ENTJ

    I admit that there are lot of xxNP types among actors, but they are not the only type.

    I think a lot of actors are ESTP or ESFP.
    I would consider myself a good actor- with a strong Ne function.
    Unfortunately, it leads some of those close to me to be somewhat distrustful of what I have to say because they often wonder 'is this what he thinks I want him to hear' or 'is this what he really thinks'.
    Even though I'm an Introvert, I am a very good improviser. I am a quick thinker and if I have to speak extemporaneously, I am really good at it. I know of other Introverts who are good at this as well. If anything, I think that might be more of an Intuitive/Sensing difference than an Introversion/Extraversion difference.

    Angelina Jolie-ISFP
    Kiefer Sutherland-ENTP
    Ben Stiller-ENFP

    Yes, INFPs can be some of the best actors around, actually.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    My friends try and convince me that I'm a good actress, and it's true that I seem to find slipping into another character very easy, but I get terrible stage fright xD besides, friends are supposed to say things like that
