    Default Movie: Iron Man 2

    I'm posting this here because I'm specifically interested in NT opinions on character types. I'm not a big "physics" guy myself nor am I a huge fan of sci-fi but, as I sat and watched, I couldn't help but notice the dominance of NT archetypes.

    Stark (Downey, Jr.) seemed ENTP
    CEO of Hammer Industries seemed ENTJ
    Russian physicist (Mickey Rourke) seemed INTJ

    Agree? Disagree?

    All that I found lacking was a good old-fashioned INTP
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    This portrayal of Hammer seemed more like an ESTP to me, very tactical in the way he approached everything, always ready to make a deal. Iron Monger from the last movie might be a better candidate for ENTJ, though he wasn't completely rounded out as a character.

    I agree with Stark and Vanko as ENTP and INTJ, though there is probably a case to be made for ENFP and INFJ as well.

    Haven't seen the sequel but I was forced to watch the first one as I was stuck on a coach with a collective television.

    I'm curious as to why anyone thinks the protagonist (I forget his name, I'm referring to the spoilt playboy turned moralistic war criminal, - gotta love the American bourgeosie's version of a "coming of age" story a la Bush Jr.), is an N...

    Yeah, believe it or not, as I watched the movie I thought "people on the forum would totally type this guy as an S except that he is smart and OBVIOUSLY S's can't be smart." I knew he would end up ENTP.

    If he wasn't actually shown as being extremely smart what would people type him as? You guys do realize that there have to be maybe a few anomalies to the "anyone who is exceptionally smart is an NT" right? Oh, never mind.

    HATED THIS MOVIE.
    just throwing that out there.

    let me tell you why. two reasons.

    -What'shisface was a TERRIBLE protagonist/superhero. Superheroes are supposed to be charismatic, leading, noble, and humanitarian figures. this guy was a self-righteous know-it-all hot shot. Not the kind of guy I'd look to as a superhero.

    -The plot was incredibly week, the climax was incredibly anti-climatic, and the ending was scattered and stupid.

    I definitely ended up liking the antagonist most of all. Definitely respected him much, much more than Downy, jr.

    but the action was pretty chill.

    Tony Stark- TOTAL ENTJ
    Lt. Col. James- IxFJ
    Scarlett Johansson's character- INTJ
    Gwyneth Paltrow's character- ENFx
    Ivan Vanko- INxP <-- (favorite character award)
    Justin Hammer- ESTJ (dick)
    Samuel L. Jackson's character- BADASS (probably ENTP)
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I didn't type him as ENTP because he was smart. I typed him as ENTP because he seemed to have Ne as a primary function with Ti as a back-up (lots of careful analysis, like when he was looking at the new element, etc.).

    Never once in the movie did I think, "oh he's totally an S. But he's smart. Therefore he's N." That wasn't the reasoning at all. He reminded me of some ENTP's that I know.

    EDIT: And by the way, why would you type him as an S? Just because there is such a thing as smart S's, therefore he must be one? Or did you find reasons why you personally thought he was an S?
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.
