    Default Ryan Gosling?

    Here are some things he has said..


    Freedom is such a gift.


    I don't like to be entertaining. I don't like the feeling of being entertaining. If there was a musical or a comedy that was not just for entertainment but was rooted in something I could relate to on a real level, then I think I would do it.


    I don't think you can discriminate against budgets, you know? I'm an actor, I guess, so I'm just trying to play as many characters as I can. If there's a character I think I can play, and they're going to let me do it, I'll do it whether it's $10 or $1 million or more.


    I feel it's important to show that one thing that you do doesn't define you as a human being. It doesn't mean there aren't ramifications or you shouldn't pay for that but its not who you are.


    I feel like everything has happened naturally.


    I have a friend that is a WWII buff, and we sat and talked a lot about stuff like the war and the reasons behind it, and you now it's all in the uniform. Once you're in it, it usually does all the work for you.


    I just have my own taste, and I just try and stick with that. I'm just trying to play as many characters as I can for as long as I have an opportunity to.


    I just sort of take it from a character perspective, and I don't know if he was necessarily spiritual, but I do think he had hope. He was a character that was comfortable having hope in his life, and hope is faith.


    I think about death a lot, like I think we all do. I don't think of suicide as an option, but as fun. It's an interesting idea that you can control how you go. It's this thing that's looming, and you can control it.


    Hollywood usually doesn't have strong woman in films like that, and it's stupid, so for the most part they're usually being directed and written by men.


    I think it's more interesting to see people who don't feel appropriately. I relate to that, because sometimes I don't feel anything at all for things I'm supposed to, and other times I feel too much. It's not always like it is in the movies.


    I think we're very complicated and we're capable of all kinds of things, and movies don't reflect that.


    I try to play characters who are different from myself, so I feel like this character is someone who is really different. I actually think that if I did what he did in this movie, I would get a restraining order put against me.


    I like working with actresses, and I like women a lot, not for obvious reasons, but just in that that there's so much about what they bring to the scene that keeps it so interesting. Their instincts are so different, and they never explain them to you.


    I'm glad I have an outlet. I don't think I would put my aggression elsewhere, but working on the projects I have worked on, you tend to benefit personally from trying to wrap your head around the way other people look at the world.


    If you do one good thing, that doesn't define you either. Being around the kids in the juvenile center, they were engaging, they made us laugh but they were there for doing something terrible.



    I think he's an introvert but i'm not sure about the rest

    INFX, INTX. I'm pretty sure about the former.

    I've seen his interviews and I love him dearly. I thought he was an INFP.

    And reading his quotes, I'm more convinced that he is. I'm not just saying he is an INFP because I am. Even if he was not, I'd still like him.

    -Freedom is such a gift. (I always say that)
    -I don't like to be entertaining. If there was a musical or a comedy that was not just for entertainment but was rooted in something I could relate to on a real level, then I think I would do it. (Neither Do I. I am inclined towards the arts but I never thought much about entertaining.)
    -I feel it's important to show that one thing that you do doesn't define you as a human being. It doesn't mean there aren't ramifications or you shouldn't pay for that but its not who you are.
    -I feel like everything has happened naturally. (Fate?)
    -talked a lot about stuff like the war and the reasons behind it, and you now it's all in the uniform.
    -I just have my own taste, and I just try and stick with that. I'm just trying to play as many characters as I can for as long as I have an opportunity to. (

    Agree on Fi-dom, but I'd say ISFP. Saw him on Letterman recently, and that was my impression.

    Funny... I thought ISFP before I entered the thread, as what I pick up from him. When I've seen him, I don't get any N vibe per se (like I do with someone like Johnny Depp, for example). And any quotes in this thread don't demand that one be N in order to say them; seems to enjoy the notion of freedom, not being in a box, general goodwill, embracing others, a sense of realism about his values, etc. I think being Fi dom does come out pretty strongly with him, plus he seems to be introverted and not extroverted in his presentation, so...

    It's not clear-cut, but it is simply what my first impression of him was. He seems to be a sweet, sensitive guy, and pretty grounded.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. 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

    The contrast with Depp occurred to me also. I've been on the fence with Depp concerning S/N, but when I compare someone like Gosling, it reinforces that Depp is likely INFP.

    Gosling's movie role choices strike me as ISFP also. One which comes to mind is Lars & The Real Girl. There's a realism to that movie with its mostly ordinary characters & one lonely oddball who highlights these basic human needs & qualities; it's an approach that seems like it would be extremely appealing to an ISFP.

    IDK what enneagram he'd be. Possibly 9w8.
