Ok I've compiled a decent list of characters from movies and their types. I've done this because I have seen A LOT of movies in my lifetime, in fact every time I watch a movie I go to IMDB.com and rate it, I've done this over the span of 7 years, I have about 760 movies rated, lol.
As I've said in other threads, good writers base their characters on real-life counterparts, therefore because a person, in real life, is typeable, so is a well-written character. I did not come to any of these conclusions "thoughtlessly". I've only stated the types of characters that I am confident of, and for me to be confident enough to state my opinion on something means that I strongly believe in its validity.
Anyways I've created this thread with purpose, not just to make claims. I've noticed that in movie and tv show threads there is much debating that gets nowhere. Neither party knows where the other is coming from in their type claims. In this thread you'll see where I'm coming from.
In terms of your comments ----
a) Look over the characters from your personal type.
b) Did I get it right? Would you say there are patterns of mistakes in how I type others?
c) If you're interested in Socionics and interested in movies, well then this thread may help you find something to rent!
d) In other threads we've discussed the tendency for people to type characters they sympathize with within their own quadra. I've wondered often if I was guilty of this... hence this thread should clear that up
e) I know some types have received more attention from me - this is because I've only included characters I'm confident in typing - it's not a coincidence that INFps are the largest category. Types that didn't receive as much attention are types I'm less confident with
f) Focus on the patterns within each type to understand where I'm coming from. Focus on the patterns in behaviour, especially negative behaviour. (i.e. INFp characters show a tendency towards depressed & histrionic behaviour)
g) I may be wrong with some of these, I admit it. But please don't just state "He's not ESFp he's ESTp! duh" because it's not duh. I love movies so if you want me to understand what a type is "actually" like then give me examples. If you want to use functions I only really understand the Role, Creative and POLr ones, the rest is still kinda greek unless explained well. I've included as many characters as I could because I'm interested in the patterns above all. Patterns are what I use to differentiate types. My dependence on this may mean that you'll find a "pattern of mistakes", if so please inform me!
h) I don't think anyone has yet endeavored to post as large a database so enjoy!
