    I know there's one YouTube video that uses "Architect" as an example of Keirsey's "INTP Architect". Even on there, others apparently protested that he was INTJ. He does sound too directive. I would say Spock was INTP before Architect. Both seem to be totally devoid of feeling, but of course, in real life, no one is really like that. Spock is at least informative.

    I think the Architect is an INTJ.

    The way I see the movie is that all the characters are representative of different mental processes. It's an allegory of the mind.

    Typing doesn't make sense - they don't represent complete humans. The are just components personified.

    That said, carry on and otherwise disregard this post.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    I agree, insofar as you can really type him. (Not that it needs to be said again, but he is so far from a "complete" human.)

    They do have a fictitious respresentation of the Architect from youtube, that claims he is an INTP (though its a poor representation)

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/v/kCauXUlGwJc&hl=en&fs=1"][/YOUTUBE]

    How the hell do you get these youtube links to work?

    I'm not going to lie - I really just compared the character to the INTJs and INTPs I know and thought he seemed much more like the INTJs (demeanor and mannerisms). I think when you're "typing" a character as flimsy as him - and as purposely one-dimensional as him - you're probably going to base it on a gut instinct of your general impression of him rather than functional analysis.

    Not me. I didn't feel she was F at all.

    I'm pretty certain she's ISTP.

    My guesses:

    Neo - INFJ
    Trinity - IXTX
    Morpheus - ENFJ

    Wonkavision, I have to mention that I absolutely love your username. WW is one of my favorite movies.

    Anyway, I have a hard time buying any of the three main characters as sensors. I know people are going to be all "N-bias!"... but can anyone really imagine a sensor living in a computer world*, hoping to find some "Morpheus" character and figure out what the Matrix is until some guy in black leather shows up to unplug you? The whole concept of the Matrix seems so incredibly N to me. In fact, I've speculated that part of the reason The Matrix was so successful was because it appealed to both intuitives and sensors in totally different but somewhat equal ways (fascinating concept vs. mind-blowing special effects - yes, I know I'm being simplistic).

    As for Neo being a sensor... come on, would a sensor really be keeping a hollowed-out copy of Simulacra and Simulation to store software in?

    * ETA: I'm not talking about living in the Matrix - rather that Neo, for instance, seems to be detached from the "real world" (and by that I mean the Matrix world people think is real!) when we meet him at the beginning of the first movie.
