    Default Post interviews or biographies of known people you identify with

    Post any interviews or short biographies of famous people you feel you relate to.

    I feel, after reading this interview, that I relate a whole shit load to Bo Jackon

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/etick...page=bojackson

    Just some excerpts:

    It is a modest life, but in many ways Bo Jackson is a modest man, one who was never particularly impressed by his own achievements. He is still intimidating, thick all over, his head shaved, his stare so pointed at times that it seems as if it could melt glass. But he is also shockingly normal, considering that two decades ago, he was the most famous athlete in America.
    Yet there are times when Bo Jackson does not come across as the least bit modest. Some who are familiar with him say Bo himself has been known to embellish his past. In fact, his entire public persona was built upon a perception of omnipotence, upon a polyglottal athletic knowledge that became the basis for the most overused sports marketing catchphrase in history: Bo Knows.
    .... his childhood friends back in Bessemer, Ala. (who, Bo jokes, often refer to him as "a--hole")
    The woman in the produce aisle would like to know if Bo is doing autographs this afternoon. Normally, Bo figures, the woman wouldn't have bothered to ask -- he's almost certain he has seen her in here before, and he probably has since he comes to this same supermarket at least once a week, where today his list includes such sundries as pasta and sausage and bananas and Diet Pepsi. But since Bo is being trailed by a reporter and a photographer, since his private sphere is already being intruded upon anyway, he figures he will make an exception.

    His personality anyway, not his sport achievements

    There are many people, strangers and idolaters, who have no idea Bo Jackson lives in this part of the country. Part of him would prefer to keep it that way. He does not hide -- if you want to find Bo, you can find Bo, and he makes occasional public appearances, such as last weekend at the Iron Bowl game between Alabama and Auburn -- but he does not keep himself on display, either. He says he has cut off associates who have given out his cell-phone number without permission.
    Oh, and his wife happens to be a psychologist.

    I can't think of anyone right now. If I do, I 'll post. Great thread, by the way.

    Surfing on Youtube, I just discovered the author David Berlinski, my immediate impression was like he's something like a more intelligent and accomplished version of myself.

    Ragnar, you should be euthanized as I've told you in detail before, but this is an interesting window on your mind.

    I honestly can't think of any famous people I can identify with personally. I'd love to see such a person though.

    Roman Polanski. Because I look a little like him (in his 30'ies), and there is maybe some small similarity in character and a type resemblance (I type him IEI). That's all, I don't have any of his talent.

    So do you identify with Emma Stone's personality in general, or just her character in that movie?

    Idk. I don't know her personally. so I guess my answer can be: kinda.

    I think I'm more soft around the edges though. but I'm totally goofy.
    and embarass myself. people don't usually expect me to be as dorky as i really am. i like it tho. recently i've realized people like me more when I'm just myself rather than be standoffish because I hate embarassing myself.

    I identify with aspects of many..
    Stephen Fry quite a bit, ... uncanny (I do believe he is close to Godliness, which in turn makes me wonder if I'm a touch narcissistic)



    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    Marilyn Manson and Trent Reznor if I have to pick real people. I identify immensely with Manson's lyrics and Trent and I seem to think very alike logically to the point of what he says could be taken straight out of my own mouth. Creepy. Go figure though, 4w5 and 5w4 types. Manson also shares my tritype so no wonder we feel the same way about the world for most of the part.

    If I have to pick fictive characters, then Fox Mulder from X-Files (EII-Ne subtype much?) or JD from Scrubs (another EII-Ne subtype?) come to mind. Both are goofy and hide a sensitive interior. I also relate to JD's inability to stand up against Dr. Cox and the feeling of not being taken seriously.

    I don't have an interview to post right now, but I relate to the Keanu Reeves squint.

    I like to think of me as a less educated Mentalist.
