    He might be an ESFJ. Either that or ISFJ.

    Here's another one who is also often typed as a traditionalist ISFJ, though I think he's mroe of a dreamer INFP.

    All of Michael Cera's characters seem ISFJ also, not INFP.

    I disagree. His character in Superbad, at least, seems INFP boy to me.

    Yeah, there's definitely room for manoeuvre here. I mean, I love Rebel Without A Cause, but Jim Stark wasn't exactly the most rounded character ever created!

    My main reasons for typing him as INFP are based on his backstory and the way in which he becomes angry.

    Jim constantly has fights with people, but only because they pick on him. His individuality is seen as a threat by everyone else, but he immediately becomes emotionally "responsible" for Plato - the scene where Jim is drunk in the Police station but offers him his jacket is a germane. You could say this is an ISFP trait as well, which highlights the difficulty in typing Jim. However, when the Police Detective (?) asks him why he keeps getting into trouble, Jim replies citing pathos and his intense emotionality. It's the way in which he "feels" angry which makes me think he's an INFP.

    That being said, there is definitely room to suggest that he is ISFP, or at least IXFP, but I think there is a gross tendency for people to consider INFPs as totally wet, reticent, and therefore nonthreatening. However, being a male INFP, I can tell you that, as a youth/teenager, I got into quite a few confrontations. Like Jim, these "scuffles" occurred at the instigation of others; counterpoint Marlon Brando in The Wild One for an example of a more consciously provocative individual. It's Jim's tempestuous nature that makes me think he's INFP, because he's so bothered with people who are seen as dishonest or in someway disloyal to themselves; his relationship with his father is a good example of this.

    Were axioms to him, who'd never heard
    Of any world where promises were kept,
    Or one could weep because another wept.

    This.

    And I wish they'd get it right already.

    Cool enough. FWIW, I'm right there with ya. I've always identified with a lot of subtleties in that character too. I think it may be a Fi dom thing in general. That, or you're ISFP... or I'm INFP. XD

    As for the Wild One.. If Brando's character is an ISTP, then I am far closer to Fi. Sometimes I see things in descriptions about ISTPs I can line up with too, but I've never been that nonchalant-cool no matter how much I tried. I'd be a giant poser if I did, so I don't. Even when I was fed up or confrontational, there was always a wish to find some harmony with people. Dean's character really wants to make friends. "People issues" bother him. He isn't detached, and neither am I.

    At least it's my best guess.

    Jon Cryer has always struck me as an ESFJ, and his character Alan is most certainly one.
