    Tony Stark: ENTP sounds about right; ENTJ could be a possibility too though.
    Pepper: ISFJ
    Obadiah: ENTJ (seems to use more Te than Ni)
    Dr. Yinsen: INTP

    Can someone please explain how he slipped through the cracks of California's 3-strikes law?

    Wow, I came into this thread positive that he was an ESTP and I kinda expected this to be an easy one.

    He's a classic charmer, into all the finer things in life, fine clothes, womanizer, whatever, clearly indulges his senses often. (And he appears to have excellent taste ).

    He improvised a freakin rocket suit. And built it, from scratch, by himself.

    He's a mechanical genius, he doesn't care about philosophy or politics, he just wants to build awesome machines and then fine-tune them until they're even more awesome.

    How on earth is that more ENTP than ESTP? :confused:

    Mostly cause he thinks of things (like the reactor that powers his heart/suit) that other scientists can't figure out.

    He does act like an ESTP though.

    Man...I'm coming on this late, but it's great to see a discussion on Iron Man. I was a huge fan back in the day (collected about a decade's worth of books...and I ended up buying the entire collection on CD after the movie).

    I think in the comics Tony is played more as an ENTJ, or even ESTP. But the movie works to bring out a human side to him - a more vulnerable side - that works even better. In the movie, I really do think he's played as ENTP, which enhances his character or me. It's as if the character were missing something in the books...and then I realized it: Downey's ENTP Tony made the character far more three dimensional and more personable. And more vulnerable. Perfect set-up for the sequel if they choose to go with his alcoholism.

    BTW, did anyone else catch his cameo in The Incredible Hulk?

    I suspect that is exactly where they are going.

    I found it on Amazon.com, but whoo-ee, the price has gone up. It was in stock when I purchased it at a little under $50. You might find it somewhere else cheaper, because Amazon no longer stocks it. The lowest price I'm seeing right now is $99: Amazon.com: The Invincible Iron Man: The Complete Collection: Software


    I suspect that is exactly where they are going.
    I hope they get into his alcohol issues, but it's hard to bring it to the big screen and resolve it in two hours. To me, it would be better to start him on the off-path in the second movie, and resolve it in a third movie. As big as a blockbuster as IM was, I think there's a guarantee for IM 2 and IM3.

    Yeah, that's a bit expensive.

    I think they are going to make two sequels, so I agree we shouldn't see the resolution (if any) of the alcoholic storyline.
