    I wonder how much of what we see is his rebellion against his father. We see plenty of that in Bergman's atheism (as his father was a conservative minister), but an emotionally remote father can spark a yearning for human connection no matter his MBTI type.

    I mean, not that I know anything about emotionally distant Swedes...

    ^Interesting point... yeah, he had a strict religious upbringing, I read somewhere that one of his strongest feelings as a child was deep humiliation, feeling 'knocked about' and he objected to Christianity because he felt it was infused with humiliation for adherents (paraphrasing). He apparently retained a deep fear of humiliation.

    I don't know much about bergman, but here in sweden it's general knowledge that he pretty much slept with every woman he ever worked with. First I wanted to say INFJ, but considering the above that doesn't seem so plausible anymore. INFJs are only promiscuous when they are punishing themselves and/or others and that's not bergman.

    This is sounding better and better in my ears.

    I could see casual sex being a way to satisfy Fe for some INFJs, despite their low Se. Late, but it's an interesting thought.
