    @Fuzzy Conduit
    That's a character in The Great Dictator, so it isn't really Chaplin speaking.
    Chaplin wrote the script and by that also the speech. The movie was his way to fight for a cause he was passionate about.

    @yeghor I have to disagree on IxFJ. He maybe was a 4 but he got famous because he could improvise a whole sketch without any preparation, a very spontaneous nature. I wouldn't rule out INFP but he was IRL just like his characters, lively, spontaneous and romantic.

    ENFJ.. same as Hitler.

    "Charlie Chaplin's son Charles Jr. describes how his father was haunted by the similar backgrounds of Hitler and himself. He writes,

    Their destinies were poles apart. One was to make millions weep, while the other was to set the whole world laughing. Dad could never think of Hitler without a shudder, half of horror, half of fascination. "Just think," he would say uneasily, “he’s the madman, I’m the comic. But it could have been the other way around."

    Hmm this ability to perceive the arbitrary of one's destiny sounds very ENFP to me...
    Anyway, very Ne (as the Joker - Ne dom - intended to demonstrate that the fine line between madness and sanity is very tenuous and that anyone could turn wrong).
