    Default American Psycho - Bateman

    Patrick Bateman = Christian Bale

    ISTj?

    He seemed IJ in terms of all the rules he seemed to cumpusorially follow, but maybe that's more a sign of his psychosis. Also ST in the sense that he seemed very inured to the what society expected of him as a guy growing up in the U.S. Very obsessive compulsive. Maybe too much so to type, but the secretary he didn't off seemed delta NF. Thoughts those who've seen it?

    it's hard to pinpoint characters in movies, especially if you know the actor's type, but my best guess is Ti-ESTp.

    What type do you think your ex was, Mimosa? I don't know about a type for Bale, though I admit if I was going off the top of my head, LSI would be in the running. I don't really know him too well however.

    Yeah, so have I really, unless I've known them for months and months.

    I wouldn't say Tom Cruise and Bale are the same type by any means, but same quadra seems right to me. Maybe IEI for your ex? Don't trust that far though.

    Cruise and Bale don't seem the same types to me.

    Bale is usually typed either LII or EIE (seems like it should be easy to tell which one but...). I don't know what is the last concensus though. Has he turned LSI at some point? About the character in the movie American Psycho I don't know because I haven't seen the movie. (the Bateman vs Batman thing is funny...in next movie he is just Baman?)

    Cruise is usually typed ESE. Sometimes IEE. Perhaps they are LII-ESE duals?

    They could. Still, I get a more sensory vibe from Cruise than I get from Bale.

    They definitely share something in the look department. However, Cruise always looks sharper and energetic and Bale more mysterious and reflective. Not that it means anything but Cruise has a more stereotypical "sensory head" which is shaped a bit like a box with a wide jaw. Bale has a stereotypical "intuitor head" which is wide on the forehead and then narrows down.



    Edit: In addition if I compare these people to myself I can see how Bale has much more resemblance to me than Cruise does. Actually if I would have to pick a celebrity look-a-like I could pick Bale. Not because he looks a lot like me but because he resembles me more than any other celebrity I know. Tom Cruise does not look as much like me. Thus they don't look the same nor are they the same type (ugh!).

    So why do people type him LSI if he's EIE? Isn't that totally different?
    Because in Batman he is a silent and controlled guy who kicks ass? Seriously speaking, I do not know. He doesn't instantly seem LSI to me but can't tell for sure. I have seen one interview of him where he practically spends the whole time in his head kind of trying to formulate what to say. He seemed kind of reflective there. Whether it was Ni or Ti I do not know. I did not see any kind of "Ti death stare" anyways so I assume Ni.

    Whatever your views on the character I do not believe it is possible to type a modern Renaissance man such as Bateman.
