    It's more about people coming out of their home and doing something together. That was what important.
    I don't think I have any cynicism in me. And if I had some at some point… I hate cynicism. I wipe it from me. I don't like cynical people. I don't like cynical movies. Cynicism is very easy. You don't have to justify it. You don't have to fight for it. - Michel Gondry
    I wanted to make a feel-good comedy. But not really like Frank Capra. More like the Italians, like Vittorio De Sica, the more socialist [filmmakers]. ... [De Sica's] Miracle In Milan is a great film about this community of homeless people that create their own system. And there is an angel that comes to help them. At heart, it's really about the people. It's not about the bank or some corporation. It's really about the people. - Michel Gondry
    One of the reasons I really wanted to do "The Science of Sleep" was not to have to question my ideas on an intellectual level. When I work with other people, I have to use words. It's more limiting to the process to have to convey my ideas that way. If you want to create something, hoping it will go beyond yourself, you can't question every step of the process. It may seem contradictory, but the fact that I'm the only one to make the decisions allows me to have less control of things. I want my instinct to be more in control and my intellect to be less in control, allowing me to have ideas, images, and concepts without having to justify why.

    I'm still thinking ENTP. Why do you think introvert?

    The thing is, it's easy to find quotes that will justify any view - especially when out of context. I can't really go into specifics about why I know he is an INxP, but he is.

    Well, yeah, but it's a discussion forum and offering a reason (i've been guilty of not doing this one myself) can help people to question their opinions. Just hearing that someone disagrees without having anything else to go on doesn't make me reassess anything.


    Is it his body language? Themes in his movies?

    I'm not asking you to reassess anything, just stating a fact.

    Yes and yes.

    Also you can look deeper into his films and they are cerebral in a way that we are not. This feeling of being lost without love, always on the search for a perfect union... The quest to understand humanity... The music videos... It doesn't scream ENTP.

    I've been thinking about it, and I'm starting to see what you mean. The quest to understand humanity doesn't rule him out, in my opinion, because I have that myself ... I feel completely driven to understand humanity as a whole rather than individual people.


    But the way he approaches love does feel foreign to me. I can't pinpoint why though. Hmmm.

    Because it's so very idealistic, whereas we tend to be more realistic (after the initial attraction). All of his characters have an inability to move on, to move forward at the sight of failure - this is not something that the collective "we" possess, as an ENTP rule. He very much explores the concept of a single soulmate.

    YES!!! OF COURSE!!!



    When I watched this, my first thought was: "Really? He still hasn't moved on? How many years ago did this happen?"

    Precisely. I am always struggling to remember past loves or losses - I can't even imagine the concepts he puts forth.

    He very much lives in his head, very much so.
