Darren Aronofsky is an American movie director, producer and screenwriter, famous for directing Pi, The Wrestler, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain and, more recently, Black Swan.
How about his type? An interesting interview can be found here.
I struggled with his typing, I admit. I can see different kinds of functions at play here, but I could be wrong...
He also talks about "entering other worlds" in the video below... Could this Ne at play, like a child exploring the environment around him or her in an abstract way?Originally Posted by Aronofsky
This seems pretty Fi-ish, or maybe just NF in general...I think people are people and, if their feelings are truthful, they can connect. It doesn’t matter if you’re an aging, 50-something wrestler at the end of his career, or an ambitious, 20-something ballet dancer. If they’re truthful to who they are and they’re expressing something real, then audiences will connect. That’s always been the promise of cinema. That’s why we can see a film about a 7-year-old girl in Iran, or an immortal superhero in America. It doesn’t matter, as long as they’re truthful.
Him being more forceful than other directors seems to indicate either a strong Je function or a "directive" (no pun intended) style, which is a strong point against INxP, I think...I wish I could be as manipulative as Thomas Leroy in the film. I’m really way too direct, and I’ve actually scared away a lot of A-list actors. Natalie Portman is the first A-list actor I’ve worked with in my career. Everyone else went, “You want me to do what? For how long? For how little money?” And they walk away. I’ve lost a lot of movie stars, along the way. I think a more manipulative director would be like, “Oh, it’s not going to be that hard. Come in and we’ll have fun.” I think that’s when wars start. They’re like, “You told me there would be sushi on set, every day!” I’m a little bit too direct and straight-forward.
Fi seeking neither to affect nor to be affected? Or am I reading too much into this?I had heard of The Red Shoes, but I didn’t see it. And then, Scorsese did the restoration a few years ago and I was like, “You know what? I better go and see it.” It’s a masterpiece. It’s an unbelievable film. And I saw that there were similarities in the story, but I think that’s because we both went back to ballet and pulled from ballet for the different characters and stuff, so we ended up in similar places. But, I wasn’t really influenced by it. I really didn’t ever try to be influenced by it because it’s such a masterpiece.
That seems to indicate either Se or Te, methinks.I’ve dealt with a few method actors, but I think it’s a bunch of nonsense. It’s film acting. You just have to be on when the camera is rolling. Sure, if it’s a very intense scene, you may want to keep that energy up in between the takes, while the crew is resetting, and they would all do that, but when it’s “Cut!,” it’s “Cut!” Even when it’s “Action!,” and there’s a camera and all these lights and people are moving around you, it’s impossible to fully make believe that doesn’t exist.
What do you think? INTJ? He seems pretty introverted in this other interview:
