    Default Fight Club

    I saw this movie for the first time in at least 4 years last friday, and I had a thought. The main character seems to be an ISTP (albeit one who's managed to get himself a boring office job) with his alter-ego, Tyler Durdin, being a "dark" ENFJ imo.

    Discuss.

    I would have said the main character is an ISFJ with his alter-ego being ENTP.

    Tyler Durdin doesn't seem to be F or J (even though he does lead a large group).
    I always saw Fight Club as an ENTP alter-ego making an ISFJ go insane from his own boring life.

    I have Tyler Durden (BP) moments when I'm on cocaine. But, then again, a lot of people do.

    So what's Marla's type? I see her as a Dorothy Parker kind of character, so INFJ/P?

    i would classify durden as an ESTP, looking at his demeanor and that he is personally involved with a lot of the details of the plot mechanics. take, for instance, how he gets the materials for his soap business.

    ah k, very good point there. And the general character is very P-like, living in some slum with everything rigged but somehow it all works.

    I'm definitely leaning more towards an IFJ/ETP (main char/Tyler Durden) mix here then. The whole use of Se and Fe in the characters threw me off, between that and the proactive creation of all the different fight clubs around the nation there seemed to be a lot of Fe involved, hence my idea that Tyler was ENFJ.

    durden seems like a blatant ENTJ. i don't see anything P-like about him. he's obviously a Te dom...

    i think of norton's character as an INFJ. (just re-read the book, though, so it might be slightly different)

    marla is INFP

    I would have said he was an P because of his risk-taking nature.
    I don't know a lot of ENTJ's but the ones I know are arrogant, overbearing, and witty but cautious and unwilling to take physical risks.

    I would have said INFP or ISFP for Marla- definitely an Fi dom.
