    Default Rudolph Valentino

    Guy in my avatar, and silent-era matinee idol. My boss says I look like him. Was fond of challenging people to duels.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolph_Valentino









    I'm thinking ESTp.

    I thought that, too. Especially in that last photo, he looks like Brando from one of the publicity shots for Streetcar.

    lol. I have a kind of craggy face and a nose, brow, cleft chin, and cheek bones that stand out. Most people that get V.I.ed as INFp have more delicate/subtle faces.

    ESTp it is.

    He has a different, quiet sort of energy compared to Marlon. Some ENFj stare-through-soul expressions. Ni in his poems:

    Preface
    To you, my gentle reader, I wish
    to say a foreword of warning before
    you peruse the contents of this book.
    I am not a poet nor a scholar,
    therefore you shall find neither
    poems nor prose.
    Just dreams - Day Dreams - a bit of romance,
    a bit of sentimentalism, a bit of philosophy,
    not studied, but acquired by costant
    observation of that greatest of masters!..
    Nature!
    While lying idle, not trough choice,
    but because forcibly kept from my preferred
    and actual field of activity
    I took to dreams to forget
    the tediousness of wordly strife
    and boredom of jurisprudence's
    pedantic etiquette.
    Happy indeed I shall be if my Day Dreams
    will bring you as much enjoyment in
    the reading as they brought to me
    in the writing.

    Day Dreams
    (To the Friend)
    Yesterday - in contemplation
    We dreamed of love to be,
    And in the dreaming,
    Wove a tapestry of Love.
    Today - We dream our dream awake;
    realization, coloring our romance
    with all the glory
    Of a flaming rose.
    Tomorrow - What awakening lies before us:
    Our tapestry
    In shreds perchance,
    Or mellowed - glorified
    By love's reflection?
    I wonder.

    The Philosophy of a Pessimist
    I do not care for money
    made easily,
    It is not lasting - I know.
    I do not care for friends
    made easily,
    They are not lasting - I know.
    I do not care for anything
    that comes easily,
    It never lasts - I know.
    But I fell in love with you easily,
    But, not lastingly - I know.

    To A. M.
    The sky is the mirror that
    reflects all phases of Life.
    The clouds of Doubt bring showers,
    but there is always
    the "Silver Lining" promise.
    Moral: If the sky is the limit
    better fix it clear in your mind
    to begin with. <- positivism?
    He was also said to be submissive in his marriage to Natacha Rambova:
    On the set of "Camille" Valentino met his second wife Natacha Rambova Rambova was woman of some importance, not just for her love-life, but also on account of her artistic career. She was highly regarded in Hollywood both for her set and costume design. Valentino and Natacha spent all their time in animated discussion regarding the artistic choices to be made. Rambova was very ambitious, with a strong determined character, and became incensed with rage when her husband was given roles of scarce artistic quality.
    Yet his collection of antiques corresponds to something that was mentioned in Aushra's ISTj description:
    One of the lesser known aspects of Valentino's personality was his intelligence, far superior to that normally ascribed to film stars. Perhaps he was not particularly practical, not shrewd enough to make the best of every situation, but he was inarguably cultured. His books were evidence of this, effectively an ideal library, rare, splendidly produced editions, chosen judiciously by Valentino himself, of Latin, French, German, Spanish, Old English, Greek, Russian and obviously Italian texts. Rudy read and understood his books, and had an extraordinary memory when it came to discussing them. The range of his interests is also demonstrated by a collection of national costumes from every epoch. He also collected volumes on world-wide national customs, reading in Italian and English in order to guarantee the most detailed knowledge possible and judge each subject for himself. His collection of costumes was completed by an array of spears, arrows, swords, hunting knives and daggers, all exhibited against a background of red velvet. Beside the arms stood statues in worked ivory, antique silver, jade and onyx. Rudy knew the story of every object in his collection.

    Good points, raisonpure. I did see his poems, but wasn't quite sure what to make of them. There is some Ni there, and especially his love poems seem to indicate victim. (See: "Schiavitù" and "Tu") ISTj did cross my mind, as he seemed quite heavily and is some pics, he has a very definite ISXj look. OVerall, though, he seemed a pretty high-strung fellow, which are typically Ejs. ENFj is a possibility.

    He's like some combination of Brando, Gene Kelly, and Mario Lanza, lol.
