Brie Larson. People need to stop hating on Brie, for serious. I think a lot of Marvel fans were a little put off after watching Brie’s role as Captain Marvel on the big screen. Look I get it, those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Let’s be real here, were talking about CAPTAIN MARVEL of the MCU. So I see the super high expectations for Brie. But let’s not disregard her amazing performance in the “Room”, a role I find more fitting for Brie. However, Brie is barely just settling in as Captain Marvel – best we can do is remain optimistic, she has a lot of potential and there is plenty of room to mature and grow. I think if the industry was much more aware of her personality type and cognitive functions, she could really capitalize on her strengths, refine and improve on a few things depending on the role.
Yes folks, I went for it. Russel Brand. And whoa, yes I done did it. When I look at Russel Brand, I see an intergalactic explosion, a transcendental phenomena and at times I find my consciousness expanding into new unexplored realms. Yes. Explosion.
“Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to the Greek” were my first encounters of Russel. I will have to admit, he struck me as a bit too much and over the top. At first I thought these were just the role requirements, but low and behold, this is Russel Brand 24/7. I mean, just check out his last name – he’s literally the BRAND.
We need more people like Kevin Hart. I forgot what year it was, but I remember stumbling on one of his stand up comedy shows. High energy and extremely fluid in his delivery – I don’t know what he did but he found a way to relate his comedy bits with the masses, including myself. Kevin Hart is literally everywhere nowadays from podcasts, movies, tv shows. For some reason he’s always hanging out with Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), I guess they have really good chemistry. I’ll have to cover The Rock in a future post.
Bobby Axelrod, CEO of Axe Capital. I’ve seen forums type Bobby as ENTP but for me this is a no brainer – Bobby is a solid personality type, ENTJ. Dominant Extraverted Thinking (Te) and Auxiliary Introverted Intution (Ni).
It’s that Introverted Intuition (Ni) we see in Bobby that allows him to penetrate, improvise and will through difficult obstacles. Then that powerful hero function Te locks everything in place. There’s a cool scene of Bobby meditating, that’s Ni navigating and Te structuring these patterns and concepts in place. He’s got a lot to keep track of.
The first time around I wasn’t all too impressed actually, it felt like these two were just warming up. Personality fanatics (for a lack of a better word), were really unsure whether Elon Musk was an INTP or an INTJ. In round 2 though, we really get to see Ti, Ne, Si and Fe come out. Joe does a great job with parental Ti and challenges Elon with it.

Dynamic Duo – Marty ESTJ + Wendy INFJ
Ozark the Netflix series doesn’t need an intro, the series is pure engagement right from episode 1.
On to the dynamic duo…
Marty Byrde can easily be mistakened as an ESTP due to his action oriented, here and now quick thinking abilities. However, it is not Se that we see, it is actually Te in ESTJ that is always active and scanning the world for objectivity. ESTJ’s child function or third function Ne – Extraverted Thinking allows for Marty to scan for multiple possibilities. Further we see Parental Si (Introverted Sensing) in Marty, which makes him dutiful and responsible in watching out for his family, though not what were used too in the traditional sense.
The “Zuck”. Were taking a look at Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, the face behind Facebook. I captured a nice shot of Zuckerberg laughing. That laugh does actually come out quite often in interviews. But you’ll notice they look more or less the same each time. I presume you don’t follow Zuckerberg on a daily basis so you might be more familiar with the movie “The Social Network” where Jesse Eisenberg (an INTP, stay tuned for this future post) plays Mark Zuckerberg. You get a glimpse of what Zuckerberg is kind of like. Yeah, I’ll refer to Mark as “Zuckerberg” – just seems more iconic and fun.
Yeah, not one of Natalie Portman’s best photos but this was completely intentional. I wanted to capture Natalie in her natural state, when she isn’t acting on script – a candid shot if you will. We usually see Natalie strutting along in a pretty pristine dress accompanied by a great big smile. Watch some of Natalie’s interviews from her younger years (well, and now too) and you’ll see what I mean. Go back in time and watch one of her first movies (I think it was her first), “Léon: The Professional” . If you’ve already watched it, it’s worth watching again – highly recommended, really good movie.
Other big hits include “Black Swan”, “Marvel’s Thor” and Star Wars – check these movies out as well.
This is Thor, God of Thunder – one of the most powerful Asgardians and Avenger. Thor Odinson can be paired with just about anyone in the MCU but where he is most fitting would be with the Trinity (secular) – namely, with Captain America (ISFJ) and Iron Man (ENTP). If you haven’t already seen MCU’s Avenger’s Endgame you’ll see what I mean, there is an epic scene against Thanos you won’t want to miss.
Kevin Costner isn’t an easy personality type to nail down, this curiosity made me want to dig into Kevin’s function stack. I reflected on his acting career and movies made – for me it was “Dances with Wolves”, “Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves” and “WaterWorld” to name a few. Oh yeah of course there’s “Body Guard” with Whitney Houston. Come to think of it there isn’t a Kevin Costner movie I didn’t like.
