    I did, yeah. I think the book characters are portrayed very similarly to the movie characters, but I did watch the movie first, so that may have colored my view.

    That said, I would say that Durden = ENTJ, the main character = ISFJ, and Marla = ISTP.

    You know, I'm not sure. I read part of the personal bit which he wrote at the end, and to me, he sounded like a real douchebag. ESTP, maybe?

    Huh?

    "I read part of the personal bit which he wrote at the end, and to me, he sounded like a real douchebag"

    I don't get what you mean by that.

    How many books of his have you read?

    Maybe we have different versions of the book. On mine, there was this section at the end which he wrote that was, I think (I read it a while ago) about how the book was developed over time. I can't remember exactly why I disliked it, and I seem to have lost the book, so I can't go back to reread.

    And Fight Club is the only book I've read of his.

    The message of fight club: don't bother actually making a difference by blowing the whistle on your boss, just fantacize about being a one dimensional macho man and dedicate your life to vandalism.

    OR

    Fighting is thereputic, because it makes the narrator stop making fun of your man-boobs

    OR

    Materialistic apathy is a result of not being true to your gender role. If only Jack was jerking off in the bathroom instead of reading that stupid Ikea catalog, his life would automatically be better.

    OR

    Stop being a slave to the man and embrace your freedom to do what Tyler Durden says.


    Yeah, I didn't think much of fight club.

    I think you have to really go out of your way to read some of those messages into the movie/book.

    Then again, in the time you've been on this forum, I've found you to be a master of getting righteously offended by everything.

    rightiously offended my ass. I've always had that opinion. It's just an opinion, honestly, you must read at least one of those things I mentioned. So what do you think the messages in the movie were? (a much more interesting discussion). The thing is, I'm getting fairly stupid messages from the movie, and thinking "I've heard better stuff from bums"- and it's not like I get that impression on purpose or anything. What I mentioned is what the movie seems to be saying. If the movie has some other, hidden message, that's much less moronic, I would love to have to hear about it.

    It's just my way of saying "blah" to the main topic. Tyler Durder, is he an extraverted thinking type or an extraverted sensing type? Whoop dee doo anyway, it's a stupid movie.

    I've seen the movie lots and read the book once. I remember them being quite similar, the main difference in my mind being that I got a greater sense of the narrator and Tyler having a connection (as friends) and that Tyler originally made the soap from Marla's mom's saved-liposuctioned-butt-fat stash for future lip injections for Marla. What I like best is that I think it captures well a feeling of unrest and destructive tendency in lonely people.

    Narrator: IStJ
    Tyler-persona: ESTP (with a little ENTP thrown in). I wouldn't say ENTJ just because his general plans were all of the create-chaos variety and seemed rather spontaneous rather than ... planned.
    Marla: INFP
