    I'm agree, except for Marcus Aurelus who is rather INTP I think.

    Marcus Aurelius was definitely an 'INxJ' in both the movie and IRL, Commodus was insane and megalomaniac, which means that he's impossible to type. I'm not sure in Maximus, I definitely wouldn't vote for ISFP.

    He seems like an INTP in interviews, at least to me. If not that, then ISTP because his films are often clinically beautiful.

    A great way to determine the type of a storyteller is to simply look at the stories they tell; try to map the journey of the protagonist and see what they learn. I once read that the common thread between all of Ridley Scott's protagonists was that they were often caught in situations where "the rules of the game changed". I'll be buggered if I could find that quote again though, but it seems like a very Ti-way of looking at things.

    Anyway, for what it's worth!

    Russell Crowe is Ni and Fe so he is probably entj (TeNiFeSi) (he had his most typical role in "a good year", which has all the bossiness and not much of the deepness or coolness that Hollywood likes to pull out of him),

    but he can play infp (NiFe) or intp (NiTe)

    Just to clarify, I didn't type Maximus as ISFP, I typed his gladiator friend Juba as ISFP.

    I typed Maximus as ISFJ- The Protector-Supporter.

    funny, there is a type profile site that lists either infj or infp as "protector" , i believe its that brownish site with verry old html

    in one online fight i was calling out "i am protecto" (without r, to make it sound more gladiator-ish)

    as for servants and supporters, the ones who make sure you wear a cap in winter (isfj) ... i seem to be ignorant about them. (???)
    doesn't every mother test as isfj? when i hear "protector" i think of Noah Bennet (character in heroes, claire's father)
