    Cillian Murphy (IEI?)
    Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight



    Ken Watanabe (LSI)
    Inception, Batman Begins

    I thought he is LSI or LII. At least Ti ego and valuing.

    The major theme in most of his movies is the futility and meaningless of revenge, although powerful and compelling. His other themes are justice and the never-ending search for it.

    Another common thread in his films is the death of a leading lady(onscreen and offscreen), Batman, Memento, Inception, Prestige, etc. Any relationships in his films tend to end in death, either before the movie begins or during the movie.

    yeah. i just re-watched Batman Begins... i was really struck by the process of Bruce Wayne becoming Batman - he carefully and purposefully crafts his image to have a certain effect ("theatrical" and intimidating to his enemies), but at the same time the Batman persona is highly symbolic and holds a lot of deep personal meaning to him - his beliefs, purpose in life, and even his own internal struggles with his fears and his guilt. also addressed is the issue of authenticity, the paradox of having to wear a mask while acting on one's true inclinations. it all seems very Beta to me.

    Christopher Nolan: LSI is possible, and i'm sure about ti-ego for him, but ti-ego more in beta style, it's easy to see in his films
    Christian Bale: LSI-EIE, he's definitely rational, and &-valuing
    Michael Caine: Gamma SF
    Cillian Murphy IEI, the obvious
    Ken Watanabe: LSI, no objections ; dd
    Joseph Gordon-Levitt: some Ej, ENXj
    Tom Hardy: ESTx? dunno
    Morgan Freeman: ESE
    Marion Cotillard: ILE

    Good thread. I see a lot of and logic > ethics in Nolan's movies, so I would guess ILI, LSI, or maybe LII. What about SLE for Christian Bale? I can't decide. Caine is LSI > ESI IMO.

    I think LSI or LII because of his usual deprioritization of vengeance and revenge for justice. All the vengeance in his stories are tragic. He also works majority of the time with Ti valuing types. I always enjoyed his films also because of how thoroughly consistent they are despite their often complex plot lines and story.

    Also I think he's got a similar VI to Gulenko.

    You can laugh but I think Nolan is a SLE.
