    You mean the Manic Pixie Dream Girl?

    Growing up and basically until very recently there was no one on TV or in movies who I could 'identify with'. And that's not just in a racial/gender way but just in general. The question always seemed very odd to me, like, I'm supposed to 'see' some of myself in a fictional character in order to enjoy something? It was more like having some bones thrown at you and told "this is all you're getting AND YOU WILL LIKE IT! Or not, I don't care". Then I'd think, "Dang, that must be nice to have entertainment venues catering to you." :wistful face:

    Anywhoo, the ditzy girl from 'confessions of a shopaholic'. I loved that character She was kind of a hyper manic ENFP caricature. That was the first character in a fictional work that I could 'identify with' which sounds odd, and not because I have a shopping addiction. :P

    My point (yes I have one :P) is that Manic Pixie Girl trope seems fairly new or at least now is the golden age of it and Zooey is the poster child. It seems to have coalesced with the whole extreme 'man child' trope that started with Jack Black and Judd Apatow capitalizes on. I think with how popular her characters have become she's now a 'famous personality' so you won't see much deviation between her characters and herself. Kinda like Winona Ryder in her heyday. Makes you wonder if she was typecast all the time or just chose roles that she personally felt comfortable with.

    Annnnd, yeah, the whole 'new girl quirky girl with bangs' template is very much an ENFP maybe an INFP. Her character on '500 Days of Summer' was ENXP, I think more ENTP than ENFP.

    I change my mind (I must have been on some drugs to think she was INTP...though at least I got the IxxP part right.) She's ISFP.

    Katy Perry on the other hand is HOTHOTHOT. Can't say why.
    Hell yeah! Even if she is a bit prude. Russel Brand is a douche.

    Same here! I've always felt she's one of those actress that has been overlooked ever since her superb performance from All the Real Girls

    Though from this short video, I had more of an ENFJ vibe from her: [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKzV0yQe0EU"]Deschanel's Happy Dance[/YOUTUBE]

    I found that demographic split pretty interesting too... and for the record, I think Katy is talented but am otherwise indifferent to her.

    At this point, I feel like the ENFJ and the ISFP reads are closer to truth than INTP. in terms of her presentation.

    Actually, I've only know one guy who digs her. Most of my male friends got turned off by her voice. I thought that's really weird actually.

    Is Zooey D a queer? That would explain everything.

    You could always take 5 seconds and read her IMDB page, at least just to get a better feel for her, instead of just taking wild shots at her sexuality.

    Wow! I happened to like them both (and a little obsessed) when I was in college. Surprising!
