    Default Charles Foster Kane

    I just saw Citizen Kane, and I'm intrigued by the protagonist, though I'm unsure about his type.
    ENTJ perhaps? I hope at least some of you still remember the movie.

    I always read that he's ESTP.

    Possible... but I think he might be more Te-driven than Se-driven.

    I thought he was pretty ENTJ too. The whole Rosebud thing seemed like classic Fi inferior case study.

    ESTP.

    The whole story of Citizen Kane is that he cared more about people liking him than he did about having power over them. He had no real plans about expanding his empire or consolidating his power. He started the newspaper business because he thought it was "fun" and didn't care that he was losing money on it.

    ESTP seems right. I actually own this movie but it's been a while since I've watched it.

    I saw that movie about 50 times while in film school.
