    Right around the same time you mistook Reznor's personality for an Fi type.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I'm pretty sure the Downward Spiral is loaded with the stuff. Some pretty hate machine but I haven't heard all of it.

    Tom Cruise likes and owns motorcycles, and planes but I have serious doubts about his being accurately typed as ISTP. Even though he's commonly listed by people who are more informed than I and "academic" on the subject.

    They say he's an Introvert which I buy, in that many actors and famous orators and world leaders are introverts...so I won't dispute that thought.

    I think he's an N...a capital N. Notice how he leaps around from topic to topic without any prompting or lead ins from the interviewer.

    YouTube - Crazy Ole' Tom Cruise on the Today Show

    I also think he's an F. He doesn't communicate on the topics he's free form flowing on as a T would? There are no concrete examples, he just conveys that he Feels strongly about what he knows.

    I'd also guess that he's a J. Although that seems to be more difficult to pin down from a distance.

    Further,

    1. He likes to brag about his planes, bikes, houses, trips, etc to people around him. An ISTP is highly unlikely to engage in that type of behavior, most ISTP's I've ever known appreciate and like to share our toys in a differing context.

    2. Scientology? wtf!? It's rare to meet an ISTP that embraces anything other than some personal thoughts and a curious disdain for rigid religiousity.
    I'd describe most ISTP pursuits in that arena as purely accepting of others and Zen...well after maturity post early twenties is reached. Please pipe up someone if you see it differently for yourself, or in observing others.

    3. He has all those toys but doesn't work on them himself? Doesn't even lift a wrench? wtf? Unless I've missed something in my query.

    4. An ISTP would be curious or not curious about psychology, one might critisize the mental health system as being the mental disorder system But I doubt an ISTP would dismiss the entire field as being bunk.

    5. "The hair"

    So, I'd say that Tom Cruise has played a lot of ISTP roles in movies. But IMHO that's about the extent of it.

    Since the moment we noticed our ESTP brethern had successfully tested out a more evolved strategy in getting laid.

    I liked this observation by Christian Bale:

    "[Bale and I] talked about how Martian-like Patrick Bateman was, how he was looking at the world like somebody from another planet, watching what people did and trying to work out the right way to behave," she said about developing the character. "And then one day [Bale] called me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on David Letterman, and he just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken with this energy."

    Read more: Christian Bale's American Psycho Inspiration was Tom Cruise | WorstPreviews.com
    Nice little summation of what makes ISTPs so cool and friendly, and yet ever-so-slightly unnerving at the same time.

    p.s.

    Christopher Walken
    Keanu Reeves
    Tom Cruise
    Brad Pitt
    David Fincher
    Kevin Spacey

    p.p.s. How about John Doe from Se7en as a great example of an unhealthy ISTP? "You can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore, you have to hit them with a sledgehammer."

    People are always confusing actors with their screen roles. So most of these celebrity typologies are way off base. Esp the infamous Tom Cruise...who is no ISTP.

    Daniel Day Lewis on the other hand is a classic ISTP...in his personal life.

    Cruise is an INTJ.
    And yes, Daniel Day Lewis exhibits all the classic ISTP traits in his personal life. Trouble-making youth who hated school and later trained to be a cabinet maker...and has returned to that craft in the past few years.

    Day-Lewis is an INFP.
