    Default Sigourney Weaver's type

    So I've been on the lookout for INTP actors and actresses, and I wonder if Sigourney Weaver might be a candidate.

    Written interview 1
    Written interview 2

    YouTube video embedding doesn't seem to be working for me at the moment, but here are old-fashioned links:

    [EDIT: You might want to start with the videos in post #4.]

    On the Late Late Show

    Interview also with Alan Rickman about their movie Snow Cake

    Repeatedly forcing an interview back on (the) topic (of ocean acidification)

    I'm particularly interested in the opinions of people who are well acquainted with at least one INTP woman who is mature in both senses of the word. (I can do my own armchair theorizing, tyvm! )

    I actually have seen her listed as an INTJ on a couple of sources, but I don't know for sure.
    A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.

    No (own) opinions?

    She does seem INTP for these reasons:

    • talks about things being interesting as if that were the most important criteria
    • nerd in high school
    • likes to explore different roles
    • likes Star Trek
    • interested in the whole concept of aliens
    • doesn't really like being out away from family = introvert
    • says that science fiction isn't really fiction, that she envisions some of it happening
    • says she's not discplined enough to work on something she doesn't really believe in
    • seems to go on tangents while talking exactly like I do (other people tell me they're tangents anyway )


    Here are some quotes, many of which seem INTP:

    I haven't had time to watch the videos yet, but from the written interviews, I'd say definitely NT. I can't tell whether she's I/E or P/J. Her presence onscreen has always seemed more J, to me. Meryl Streep, I could see as an NTP, but Sigourney seems more NTJ. I'll watch the vids later, though.

    Thank you so much for checking her out and corroborating the typing! (I'd still be thanking you if you thought otherwise, although perhaps not with quite so much glee. )

    From watching the videos and reading interviews I'm quite sure she's neither E(, F) nor J. I think INTP or maybe ISTP. I would greatly appreciate your watching some clips.

    Those factoids do not seem particularly N to me. Some are very P.
    But as far as scifi goes? I know guys who are into Trek and that style of scifi who are ISTJs. That stuff can still appeal to S types.

    I haven't had time to watch/read all this stuff, I hope to get around to it at some point; but I usually read her as IST(p). If she is N, it's not a very strong one, she's far more T than N.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
