    I personally think INTP. But he really does represent teenage IN_Ps quite well IMO.
    I would be interested, though, to know why you think Frank is an INTJ. I honestly couldn't give him a type because I don't feel I have enough evidence.

    I'm very curious as to your analysis.

    Well he seemed pretty Ni. And one would assume INJ. Seemed NT.

    I dunno, Ni hunch on my part. :P

    But I haven't seen the movie in like 3 years. So I could be wrong.

    I mean, you totally could be right, I just never thought Frank showed up enough to be typed. Then again, you could type him simply based upon his intense, quiet, creepy, seemingly all-knowing ominous presence. Is that INTJ?

    I had just never thought about it.

    My b, I searched for one before posting this, but if the mods want to merge it or whatever they call it, that's cool...i'd be interested for more input. I don't buy INTP for Donnie. His intuition was within his psyche and had little to do with external stimuli - Ni. He did have a very strong Ti though, always loved dissecting things and argued intensely about why they were rational/irrational. Perhaps ISTP?

    I don't agree with INTP either. I think INFJ in Ni-Ti loop is a good bet. Ni has to be his dominant function with the visions he has and his sense of being out of touch with reality.

    Actually, I got ISFP vibes off the human Frank.
    Frank the Rabbit? He's just a plot device.

    As far as Donnie goes, I'm not big on an INTP read for him, unless it's the Ne part rather than the Ti part. it confuses the matter that he's on meds and been diagnosed with a psychological condition that drives him to detach; it means that any "INTP detachment" witnessed is not really his true identity. He always seemed to be more a dark brooding INFP to me.

    I don't say ISFP because he's not in the moment like ISFPs tend to be.
    Compare Frank to Donnie, and see how Donnie spends much of his time viewing life as one large image/tapestry and trying to connect it all together. That's 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

    Yeah I was thinking about Frank the Rabbit. That's how my mind works.

    My original guess for Donnie Darko was INFP.

    Why? "The voices told me to burn down his house" seems like stereotypical Ni/Se behaviour. Especially the mysterious doomsday prophesy fulfilling itself.

    How can anyone not get INFJ for Donnie?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
