    Default John Malkovich

    socionics.com have him as ISTp,
    socioniko.net as ENFj.

    What do YOU think ?

    (By the way, I think that socionics.com is full of crap, especially the celebrities section, which is probably the worst one found online. I mean, look at the ISTp section, how many of them would you actually consider to be possible ISTps? There's more Betas and Gammas in there than ISTps, IMO)




    John Malkovich quotes:

    "I have driven school buses, sold egg rolls and painted houses, and I have often wondered what my life would have been like if I hadn't gone into acting. Mind you, it's a great life, going around pretending you're other people and getting paid ridiculous sums of money for it."

    "If I had spent as much time in the weight room as I did designing football uniforms, I probably would have had a free college education."

    "I like design, I like details, to me it is just another form of self-expression."

    "Some directors expect you to do everything; write, be producer, psychiatrist. Some just want you to die in a tragic accident during the shooting so they can get the insurance."

    "I don't care what other people think. I don't think it matters."

    "If you don't interfere with me, I'll always do something really good."

    "I can have incredible self-discipline. But see, I think it's obviously a form of stupidity."

    "If you're too smart it can limit you because you spend so much time thinking that you don't do anything."

    "Most of the women that I like have a haunted quality - they're sort of like women who live in a haunted house all by themselves."

    "We have a tendency to think everyone's idiotic and everyone's only doing something idiotic, and the world is controlled by a not-so-secret group of morons. There's great truth in that, I suppose, but then it's also not true."

    "I know fashion can be intensely goofy, but it is something I've always taken pretty seriously."

    "It's not a gift of mine, but one given to me, to be able to criticize myself and not be crushed, by myself or by others."

    "I can see how, given a certain degree of sensitivities, proclivities and rage, I could have ended up differently."

    "I was a very good baseball and football player, but my father always told me I was much more interested in how I looked playing baseball or football than in actually playing. There's great truth in that."

    I hadn't seen that socionics.com list before. ROFL. Kathy Bates? Goldie Hawn? ISTps? I'd say that most of the people listed there aren't ISTps? Is this all going off some VI thing?

    I think John Malkovich is a Beta type...I have an inkling he is ENFj - I knew a ENFj once who used to sit in places by herself and just seemed to be watching things quietly...and yet when people interacted with her, she was completely on the ball - she didn't let things get past her. John Malkovich seems to have a very calm persona, and a 'who, me?' kind of response when asked questions, and yet he always seems to have the upperhand. (On the other hand, ISTps are quiet unless provoked - ENFj + ISTp are two conflicting types, and yet I can see why people might think either ).

    (My inkling is kinda weak - John Malkovich is kewl anyways).

    And they are not. The list is ridiculous.

    Not necessarily. I am curious about Malkovich as I find him very interesting and unique in his acting. I wonder if someone has any opinion regarding his type.

    hmm...Malkovich is similar to Jeremy Irons IMO - he's typed INFj on this forum I see...does that point towards Delta, or to xNFx? . (lol I'm hopeless...sorry).

    No, you ain't hopeless :wink: (how could you say that ) , it could actually make sense. On first sight, his facial structure does resemble an INXj. And I can see the resemblance to Jeremy Irons as well. Hmm...

    In fact you are right about that. I have always wondered how that can be. He is so similar to my INTj father that I have wondered if Malkovich also could be an INTj, but I have never investigated Malkovich's type in depth.

    What do you think of the resemblance between Malkovich and Clint Eastwood? It is easier for me to see Eastwood as an ISTp, because he is clearly similar to the Swedish author Astrid Lindgren (author of Pippi Longstocking and other books):

    http://images.google.se/images?q=Ast...=1&sa=N&tab=wi

    And I believe that Lindgren was an ISTp.

    Definitely Resolute, and very probably rational. More likely Beta than Gamma.

    It's funny, I was just going to start another thread about Clint Eastwood, (what a coincidence. ) Frankly, I don't really see any particular resemblance between him and Malkovich, but I was wondering about his type as well. I think he is definitely an ST type, more likely Beta than Delta, IMO. ESTp>ISTj>ISTp ???

    Actually, I think Socionics.com's V.I. is okay. There is a noticable consistency in the people's expression and faces. But, I don't think he has people from gamma/delta typed correctly. If you examine socionika.net's gallery, there is a very vivid consistency and some of the people's typings seem likely. btw, consistency as far as similar facial features.

    For what its worth, my ESFj then-girlfriend listend to a very lenghty interview with him and then said, "he's so incredibly creepy".

    Perhaps ISFj makes sense -- not sure.

    LSI (ambiguous subtype), the kill-for-me type. Sx/sp or Sp/sx E 5?!

    Is too. You can still love him though without it being duality
    IDK but Craig at least seems Merry type (/ valuing, not because of being goofy).

    Craig is Se-SEE. Which makes John, Craig's supervisor.

    John Malkovich's humour is always very dry and understated. He has an eccentric approach towards personal interests and hobbies, going to the rhythm of his own drum, doing what is enjoyable to him rather than what is expected. Often there is an emphasis on detail in design. I find this all more in line with Delta than Beta. I think SLI makes the most sense.

    I also think Clint Eastwood is an SLI.

    LSI works, his energy is rather stark and contained. probably Se-sub.

    both Eastwood and Malkovic are LSI (probably the former Ti subt.). But I'd never dare imply that JOA's typings are ridiculously wrong.

    Eastwood is definitely LSI who usually plays SLI's....his ex wife Dina was an obvious EIE, as seen in their reality show. And no, they weren't conflictors because of divorce.
