    JCVD

    "Jean-Claude Van Damme" - ESTP.



    Starring six minutes of introverted intuition with extraverted feeling.
    Bellison uncorked a flood of horrible profanity, which, translated, meant, "This is extremely unusual."

    This guy was a badass. Great legs, tremendous balance between flexibility and size.

    You think? I haven't watched the movie in a while.

    I don't think he's ESTP. He's always blabbing about his weird ideas an theories and is'nt really grounded, not realistic. I'd rather say INTP or maybe ENTP for him.

    In the movie, playing "himself", he's ESTP, I reckon. The only blatantly obvious N spot is that six minutes where he ascends. That monologue to camera he gives inside the roof of the "post office" with all set lighting gear in the background... it isn't bizarre or disconnected, it's just internal. It's not even really "to camera"! It's a lifetime's worth of connections. I call introverted intuition (plus extraverted feeling). I found it gripping. I've never seen so obvious a display in any other movie, ever. (Except, oddly enough, in the movie I watched the other night, The Life Before Her Eyes, but there the intuition was in the whole structure of the film, not laid bare as in JCVD.)

    And that connection he makes with Aurthur... and the way he handles the environment... I call Se over Fe. In the taxi with the loudmouthed, disappointed taxi driver... I call tertiary Fe.

    Overall I would have said ISTP because of the prominence of the intuition, but he--in the movie anyway--is comfortable sailing through the environment with people and things, so it seems better to say E. The only other time in the movie we see him doing introverted things (as opposed to doing the E things of a man who hasn't slept for two days) is that spot in "Jeff's" office where he's talking about the movies he's going to do and the way Jeff is screwing him.

    So, in the movie: ESTP!

    With possibly a really uneducated thinking side--or with, as supposedly he was diagnosed IRL to have, rapid cycling bipolar disorder.

    I don't know about type, but f'in awesome movie

    I only wish the "fantasy" ending (the one in his head) had actually been the REAL ending. that would have been hilarious.

    anyhow, jcvd... an oscar worthy actor? who knew? all of these action guys have something up their sleeve it seems (lundgren having post graduate degrees in chemical engineering; robocop transitioning to phd/history channel host; arnold a fairly competent politician).
