    Default Jackie Gleason (actor)

    Was watching some old stuff, and wondered about him. What do you guys think?

    Here is a Youtube video of him being interviewed on "The Tonight Show". Not quite what I expected, from his characters.

    Here he is on "60 Minutes".

    I love that he smokes during the interview. He seems like an E, but who knows he's an actor.

    I'd hazard at EST j or p

    ESTP perhaps, maybe even ENTP.

    One thing that stood out to me was that he didn't seem to have much to say. Not sure how that would help understand his type, but it seems like a clue to me.

    True, that's why I mention he might not be an E due to being an actor. Tough call. Probably an I but clearly one who is not very shy.

    So far, I'm pretty sure he's a P because of his ability to notice opportunity and cash in on it, also because of his idea with wetting the mandolin picks.
    After further listening, he's definitely not a J.

    There was a mention of his depth, and I believe he struggled with depression (from the movie) so I'm going to guess N.

    When he told the heads of the network that he was going to apologize for doing that horrible show, was that T at work?
    Also he doesn't appear to be unwilling to be blunt.

    My guess is ENTP, or a socialised INTP.
    But I would defer to the opinions of other ENTPs whether he would actually be one,
    since I don't know any male ENTPs in real life.

    It's possible he could be an ESTP. He reminds me a lot of my ESTP father.
