    Default Orson Welles



    A lengthy interview, in many parts in YouTube - you can get the links from the first one.

    Cinematic genius, but in later years best known for wine commercials - I wonder if many people even remember him today.

    His type is very obvious to me from the videos, I had never considered it.

    His film F, for fake, sort of thrills me.

    Gamma, irrational. Most likely INTp.

    Orson Welles - of Citizen Kane and War of the Worlds. Didn't know he did wine commercials, though. When I was in high school, one of my classes did a slightly simplified version of his famous Halloween trick.

    Interesting that everyone thought he was irrational.

    ENFp is not bad, but I think he was ISFp.

    If you pay attention, he seems to devalue Te in the interview. His movies, especially Citizen Kane, are about creative ways of using images to provoke emotional responses - something Bionicgoat is also very good at.

    Valueing of Si and Ne are obvious, but I think ISFp is more likely than ENFp.

    Maybe. But he is a good example of the fact that one can often be absolutely certain of whether a person is a rational or an irrational type just by the intuitive "impression" he gives. Everyone with a minimum competence in Socionics should be able to immediately see, hear, and "feel" that Orson Wells is an irrational type.

    His exact type is not as easy to determine as his irrationality, but that he seems to be an ethical type is rather certain.

    Quote Originally Posted by FDG

    That is one of my strongest guesses too. He seems more likely extraverted than introverted, and if ethical and not ENFp then ESFp is possible. His body type suggests ESFp>ENFp in my opinion, and it is also consistent with ISFp.

    Gamma irrational is possible, INTp is impossible.

    What makes you think INTp? Or Gamma, for that matter?

    Towards the end of his life, he did lots of small things, including wine commercials.

    I think I can agree with you. He reminds me of a few other SEIs I know. He is very likeable for me -- very mild and easy-going.

    Anyone who would dare argue with me should be able to pass the test on the basis of Socionics. Otherwise, he will be recognized as a boor.
