    Default Examples of ISTp-ENFp Duality in Movies and Literature

    I would like to recommend you two movies (I seen both in the last month) if you want to get a picture of how this types are and think:

    ISTp:

    The perfume (although this is taken to the extreme).

    ENFp:

    The Pursuit of Happiness.

    What types would you say are in the movie The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind? I just saw that again and its one of my favorite movies. The guy seems IXTP and the girl seems EXFP (well maybe). They both are somewhat unhealthy but it does underscore some main points about their types. I love the way it was filmed.

    That must be why that movie gave me a warm squishy feeling inside and stuff.

    I like the comic book, action movies like X-Men, Spiderman and V for Vendetta. Im looking forward to the next Spiderman movie and the Fantastic Four as well. The previews looked awsome.

    I used to think like this, but I've learned that it has become a dissapointing setback. In the modern society, movies have become major events for the average individual by providing an exciting moment to look forward to in the future, I've learned that you can achieve the same result through other means at this very moment and retain similar amounts of euphoria.

    yeah dude, movies suck. I'll quote an old man who watched an entire football game. He is responding to the question, 'how was the game?' He said, 'That's too long to sit!' Movies are the same way.

    The first Fantastic Four was awful.

    As I mentioned elsewhere, Jeniffer Connely's character in Blood Diamond is a good example of an ENFp.

    I watched fantastic four on satellite tv about 2 hours ago. I thought it was average.

    Blood Diamond is a good movie. God i used to have a crush on Jennifer Connely when she was in Labyrinth

    You know, I got that kind of impression. I thought it was more likely INTp-ENFp.

    The most obvious movie example of ISTp-ENFp duality I have seen is in Bound, a movie by the Wachowski brothers (who directed the Matrix).

    Ha. I recently watched a crappy 70s movie "S*P*Y*S", in which Donald Sutherland played an ENFp, and Elliott Gould played an ISTp. I think Sutherland is an ENFp himself.

    LOL, I wasn't talking about drugs, but alternatives. You can always look up a major event going on in your city that will be less stale and fresh because it something you have not experienced. Also a good alternative is to read about an interesting movie that is 10 years old and pretend that it is coming out in one week, then watch it with enthusiasm at your house as if it was just released. :wink:

    Eternal Sunshine is an SEI and LII.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I thought activity worked: they were immediately drawn to each other, but in the end, there were just some things they couldn't see eye-to-eye on. This usually makes me think Activity or Super-Ego.

    above i meant to say semi-duality (of the sorts) for Enternal Sunshine, darn typos.

    i can actually see SEI for the girl Gilly, the relation doesn't seem to be activity however.
    Though I dont know many SEIs I dont see the female in this film fitting that type. She was too assertive IMO. and the guy didnt seem LII either. Both seemed irrational. I would suggest ESTP and INTP perhaps.

    haha. It really annoyed my how they handled that hat situation, it was extremely rude. I went to the cricket and some guys sat in front of us with these giant hats, i couldn't believe people could be so rude.

    That did seem like a good example, i would certianlly know to hide that i have no idea in a situaition like that but it was a movie. Poor bloke

    I agree about the hat thing being awkward. I think it was suppose to be funny that she didn't notice about the hat, but yeah it made me feel weird also...

    This is really interesting as I hadn't realized Katharine Hepburn was an ENFP. I wonder which subtype she was, as she can be kind of rough around the edges.

    I think it's a cute clip though and I like how he is trying to calmly explain the baseball rules in the midst of everything else.
    Hi! I'm an ENFP. :-)
