    i can see Prodi...although not 100% sure. I very much doubt Monroe - i'd suggest isfj for her instead.

    The Dalai Lama is probably ENFp too.

    I think ENFp and ISFj are possibilities for Monroe. I prefer INFj.

    What I'm "sure" about is that she had in her ego. IMO she was more likely to focus on than and had an air of Infantile about her, so I don't think ISFj is very likely. She wasn't known as a strong-willed person, either.

    In MBTI she'd almost certainly be ENFP rather than INFJ, but in socionics I think INFj is more likely than ENFp.

    To me she just seems to be more comfortable with all eyes on her and more attention seeking than the average INFj who tends in my opinion, to move away from the spotlight and avoid scandals like their life depended on it rather than towards it even if they are in show business as a career. She also reminds me very strongly of an EXFp who I know well.
    It is just a guess at her type though.

    That is assuming her air of infantile was not just a put on to make her seem more vulnerable and feminine for her male audience.

    In MBTI she'd almost certainly be ENFP rather than INFJ, but in socionics I think INFj is more likely than ENFp.
    Why the switch?

    Also, what are you referring to when you make mention of "strong-willed" in this context? I have known quite a few ESFp who have tried to "bully" others to get their way but I do not know a lot of ESFps with a lot of personal discipline and self control though I suspect some must have it.
    Do you think that all/most ISFJs and ESFps possess strong will and that all INFjs lack it and in what ways do you think Monroe lacked this quality?

    I think it's a fair assumption. I don't think anyone who knew her personally ever suggested that she was a totally different person from her screen personality, in fact, I think her screen personality was a reflection of the real person. This is confirmed by Laurence Olivier in his memoirs.

    *shrugs* I just think that standard MBTI criteria would say that her lack of planning and being always late for work are a sign of P, and that she was apparently "Extroverted" in those criteria.

    I refer precisely to being a bully in fashion. I think ISFjs deeply dislike being bullies but are more comfortable with resisting bullies, and with being "tough" on others if they feel the occasion requires it, than INFjs.

    This is clearly illustrated by the fact that ISFjs are the supervisors of the ESTps, while INFjs are their conflictors. ISFjs are not easily intimidated by the ESTp's pushiness. INFjs dislike it and prefer to avoid it.
