    Default Jack Nicholson

    He seems like a dynamic (common use of the word) person.



     













    quotes:

    "I worry from the moment I take a job. I worry about how I'm going to do it, if I can do it... Then I walk on set and the director says, 'Roll', and all of a sudden, all of it disappears and it's all happening, and I relax, and I'm doing what I do, and I'm not even thinking about it." - Jack Nicholson

    "A star on a movie set is like a time bomb. That bomb has got to be defused so people can approach it without fear."

    "For a long time, I was afraid to be alone. I had to learn how to be alone. And there are still times when I think, Uh-oh! I gotta talk to somebody here or I'm gonna go crazy! But I like to be alone. Now I do. I really do. There's a big luxury in solitude.

    "I love discourse. I'm dying to have my mind changed. I'm probably the only liberal who read Treason, by Ann Coulter. I want to know, you understand? I like listening to everybody. This to me is the elixir of life."

    "I've grown out of talking like I know something when I don't."

    "In my last year of school, I was voted Class Optimist and Class Pessimist. Looking back, I realize I was only half right."

    "With my sunglasses on, I'm Jack Nicholson. Without them, I'm fat and 60."

    "One of the toughest parts of aging is losing your friends. At first it starts quietly, then pretty soon it's every month, and you can't help but think, "When is that bell going to go off for me?" And on top of that you feel this constant loss. At this time of life, you feel just a sword's point from death. It's frightening - who wants to face God and the clear white light? I know I definitely don't. Yet."

    "I've never been able to say I've been influenced by a list of artists I like because I like thousands and thousands and I've been influenced in some way by all of them."

    "When I come up against a director who has a concept that I don't agree with, or maybe I just haven't thought of it or whatever, I'd be more prone to go with them than my own because I want to be out of control as an actor, I want them to have the control, otherwise it's going to become predictably my work, and that's not fun."

    "In this industry, there are only two ways up the ladder. Rung by rung or claw your way to the top. It's sure been tough on my nails."

    I'm content with the fact that I made a decent effort. That's what I've always worried about: that I wouldn't try hard enough.

    "I've had everything a man could ask for, but I don't know if anyone could say I'm successful with affairs of the heart. I don't know why. I would love that one last real romance. But I'm not very realistic about it happening. What I can't deny is my yearning. I've been in love in my life, but it always starts with obsession that lasts exactly 18 months and then it changes. If I'd known and been prepared for that, I may have been able to orchestrate the whole relationship thing better...But when I'm with someone I've often defied every one of my conventions. I've been so struck I've said, "Come on, let's go, let's get married." But no woman has ever recognized what I say as being legitimate. They think of my reputation, Jack the Jumper. I'm damned by what people think. Now I think I have a gap I won't ever cross."

    "I just like art. I get pure pleasure from it. I have a lot of wonderful paintings, and every time I look at them I see something different."

    "I have a lot of vanity."

    ESFj>ENFj, but I keep thinking about the movie "Wolf" with Michelle Pfeiffer and I don't think I've ever seen an interview.
    EIE, ENFj, intuitive subtype.
    E3 (probably 3w4)

    Cool ILI hubbys are better than LSIs any time!

    I'm fairly sure Shelly Duvall is INFp, having watched The Shining and Faerytale Theatre ( ).

    And just for fun:

    Nicholson is probably the same type as Tom Cruise, in any case.

    Actually that makes me think that Cruise is likely ENFj too.

    I've never been able to stand his fakeness, while all my female friends were mooning over him, i'd wanna grab a trashcan and puke.

    I once dated an ESFj who kept bragging about how much like Tom Cruise he looked like (uh, ok )
    but when he'd attempt to act like tom...that was going to far. (but at least he got the sincere fakeness down)

    EIE is definitely plausible. Probably EIE>LIE, IMO.
    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...

    Jack Nicholson is not an ESFj, and he is not an introvert.

    Then what is he exactly oh-wise-and-wonderful Phaedrus?

    I saw a movie with him the other day with the fam, kinda a cringe-worthy self-help movie about doing the right things in life... think it was called the bucket or something, and I don't know the actual type of the person- but he obviously plays SLEs very well. He seemed to have some sort of supervision relationship with Morgan Freeman, who seemed to be a very clear LII in the movie.

    Ahhh The Bucket List! That was a fun movie Morgan Freeman always plays such feel-good characters; I thought the two of them worked really well together.

    Actually I thought Freeman was EII in the movie. Nicholson always seems to get cast as Beta extroverts.

    That is a totally different problem, and one much more difficult to solve. But let me first ask you this: What is the Almighty Nicholson, that we shall serve him? And what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? Who shall declare his way to his face? And who shall repay him what he hath done?

    My first guess for Jack Nicholson is SLE.

    As an extra info, he was good friends with Marlon Brando (SLE) for many years.

    Yeah, SLE is definitely a possibility. Extrovert and Se valuing is obvious, at least.

    My first guess for Nicholson was SEE or SLE.

    my guess is EIE

    He is is way too insecure and uncertain of his own capabilities for an LSI or a SLE. This kind of uncertainty is like the red flag signal that +Ti isn't part of his Ego block and one of his bold functions, but is an area where he is in need of support and encouragement himself i.e. that he is +Ti-seeking beta NF type.

    "I worry from the moment I take a job. I worry about how I'm going to do it, if I can do it... Then I walk on set and the director says, 'Roll', and all of a sudden, all of it disappears and it's all happening, and I relax, and I'm doing what I do, and I'm not even thinking about it." - Jack Nicholson

    There was an EIE forum member in chat complaining about the very same thing a few days ago, about him getting a new job but feeling insecure in his own ability to do it as per weak Ti.

    yeah, it's closer to my opinion (and to the truth most likely ). He's not EIE, I don't see it.

    He's an extrovert, that's for sure. My guess is SLE.

    Frightening, I'do go with SLE from my memory of old interviews... could watch a couple more if anyone who's opinion I value thinks I'm way off

    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.

    yeah i dont disagree.

    My initial impression was EIE due to some similarities with an EIE boss i recently quit working for, but on subsequent thought, I do agree that SLE fits a lot better (including that perpetual creepy smile).

    EIE.

    my rule of thumb is, anyone who looks creepy and evil is EIE. it works pretty well most of the times.
