    Default Tim Burton´s type.

    I didn´t find this topic in the forum. What is the type of the director of Nightmare before Christmas, the corpse bride, Big fish..etc. ?

    I think that he is INTP.

    I think that's right. Maybe on the extroverted side though. I think Depp might be INFP, which would explain some of their friendship and similar take on the world.

    I think his wife is ENFJ (or girlfriend?), which would at least fit some ideas about compatibility floating around.

    'Tim Burton, like his work, is a wonderful mess. He's falling-apart funny and completely alienated; he's morbid and ironic; he's the serious artist as goofball flake. A self-described "happy-go-lucky manic-depressive," he's like a bright flashlight in a very dark place: the grim factory of Hollywood. Burton is a true visionary. Our culture usually doesn't use that word for people whose visions look like cartoons and go down like dessert, but Burton is spitting in the eye of our culture while simultaneously celebrating it. That's the fabulous, odd thing about his work: He's angrily spitting something sweet.'

    INFJ 4w5. This entire interview has Ni written all over it.

    Just a correction... Burton didn't direct The Nightmare Before Christmas. Henry Selick did; Burton was a producer and writer.

    Sorry, carry on.

    Was that a correction to the interview I posted? It only says that Burton was developing "Nightmare."
