And what about ISFP? Fi + Ni?Honestly, I could even see ISFJ for him from that documentary, but I stay with INFJ for now.I'm watching ''Kingdom of Dreams and Madness'', and he comes off a self-preserving auxiliary Fe type. He's not very expressive, but the way he conducts himself reminds me of auxiliary Fe people I know, rather than Fi-doms. There's even a moments where he explains the proper way of bowing, rectifying your back too early was seen as rude, he says.

MBTI type of Hayao Miyazaki

. Also, it's mentioned how quickly he makes decisions, which is contrasted with Takahata, like choosing the right poster in five seconds, which is a very J trait.I still can't figure out people believe he's anything but a self-preserving type tough.

.Thanks for the recommendation. It was the perceived lack of Fe in his interviews that makes me see more of a Fi-dom, but if it's like you say I agree with you.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Hayao Miyazaki. For example, he says about Spirited Away that he wanted to make a movie aimed at 10 year old girls because there was a lack of media for 10 year old girls. He also commented that today's girls don't listen to their parents like they used, which seems to me that: 1.Which of the 16 personality types is Hayao Miyazaki?.he doesn't think of his movies in a fundamentally personal way, but in regard to the audience; 2.he likes to believe his movie have an educational purpose, both which look more Fe than Fi. I don't agree with the sx variants in the votes tough, he seems pretty sp/so, in a sexual or social INFJ, Fe would be more expressive in interviews, and his level of seriousness seems pretty sp/so as well.I agree to all your points, and definitely do not consider that all my arguments are equally strong. A different defense of his tendency to improvise might be that Isao Takahaka (an ISFP) was at least one of his mentors, so he might just think that's how you direct a movie (Fe). In any case, I still think the overwhelming evidence points towards INFJ. Order and tidiness is very important to him (as both Oshii [INTP] and Takahata [ISFP] have felt the wrath of), his imagination is allegorical and metaphorical (Ni), and his concerns, political and emotional, are consistently outward (Fe). I doubt you will disagree with me if you watch Kingdom of Dreams and Madness where you get to see him interacting with his co-workers almost like the leader of a religious community. It's very widely distributed. I think it's on Netflix in most areas.I haven't seen Kingdom of Dreams and Madness but 2 general points: (1) Comparing Miyazaki to authors is imprecise because writing a book costs very little money and is easy to revise, so you can "find the story" in a first draft and then revise without any real loss of resources - in fact, I could see it being easier than planning everything out before committing a single word to page. But the second you start production on a film, there's no going back to revise unless you spend more money, and every decision requires a budget and manpower. So to "find the story" through production of a film, you have to be pretty open to wherever that brainstorming takes you, much more so than in a book where everything in the first draft can be thrown away or changed for free. Also my point was about Ni-doms (not all J-types) wanting a clear vision, but Stephen King is ISTJ. (2) You won't necessarily really resonate with all of your type's creative output, there are too many factors outside of type that could affect that, such as interests and life experiences. I'm sure there are plenty of INTJs whose work doesn't especially resonate with me, for example I like H.G. Wells more than Isaac Asimov.I seriously recommend watching "The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness". He runs the studio almost like a religious leader, on his charisma. You get to see A LOT of his Fe. Just watch him interacting with his own artists ... He does draw the script (which is like a comic book) as he goes, improvising it, which is why I think his movies are often unevenly paced, but there are many Judgers that work this way (like Stephen King), just like there are many Perceivers that plan - like George R. R. Martin. Miyazaki is also doing it while thinking very hard about some topic he believes means a lot to Japanese society (Ni+Fe). In Japan he is additionally famous for voicing his opinions on political subjects. You get to see him, discussing in a very Fe-like way, whether it's right for him or whether it's his responsibility at the end of the movie when something comes up. His opinions also tend to be conservative and collectivist rather than individualistic and pro-Western, which doesn't necessarily mean he is Fe rather than Fi, but which I believe increases the chance. For example he is known for harshly criticizing the anime community/culture for sexualization, etc. I think you can also see a lot of his Se as well as more Fe in how he tends to put so much focus on and show such a big respect for "the hard-working people". For example there are always a handful of scenes, in all of his movies, showing someone just cooking food, making a fire, washing up dishes, etc. This respect for "the common people" and his dislike of "the new times" is very similar to many INFJs. Finally: It's anecdotal evidence, but like bobnickmad (we are both INFP) I tend to come out feeling a bit cold from Miyazaki's movies. An INFJ I used to know just loves him though, treating his movies like holy objects.At the same time,an ISFP complaining about another ISFP that he's too disorganized and not tidy enough doesn't make much sense.Hm, I look at interviews with him and I don't see much Fe, he's quite inexpressive. I wondered ISFP about him, there's lots of imagination in his movie, but it could be explained with all the shinto creatures and myths that exist in the Japanese culture, and his movie are more aesthetically rich yet somewhat simple, like they don't have the mind-bending thing to them that NP directors have. It could be a enneagram 9 thing tough.The irony is that the more an INFP wants to control things, the more they lose they integrity and authentic quirks, and in the Te grip, they can be exceedingly rigid, resulting in them looking like a 'fascist'. This is known to happen to several INFP directors and leaders of some sort.INFP can be 'dictatorial' in their process when they unleash their Te, and it's easy to see too because it's an inferior function, which has 'take it or leave it' attitude. I heard somewhere that INFPs are 'secret director' in the way that subconsciously they want to control things and bend them according to their ideals.Apparently he has a spontaneous filmmaking method, though, where he "finds the story" in the process of storyboarding, scene design, etc. He never has a finished script before he starts production. Ni-doms would want to have a clear vision beforehand. liked the idea of Myazaki being INFP due to the criticial aclaim he had, but I always fond it weird that neither Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away didn't left much personal connection with me after the movies were over. At the same, they're put together and executed masterfully. Mamoru Oshii (who I think is INTP) commented on how the work environment at Studio Ghibli is fascist like, Oshii says that at his studio things are more loose, but Gibhli is run like a factory.At the same time for an INFJ, Miyazaki is quite un-expressive, if Gaiman is also INFJ like you say, Gaiman has far more warmth and charisma. At the same time, you could say there's something of a fatherly figure to him.Nick Cave writes about incest and romanticizes murder, Marilyn Manson worships Satan, and I crush people's MBTI dreams! #type4#butterfly So you take this one from us as well. Oh well, he's very respected but it's not like I felt a very strong connection to his works.I want to know what you have to say about Hideaki Anno before my heart starts jumping.Imo a very uncontroversial case of INFJ. His movies are always some kind of metaphor or allegory (Ni). For example Spirited Away is really about the modernization/Westernization of Japanese culture (Ni+Fe), whereas Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa are about our responsibilities to nature (Ni+Fe). Apparently he had no interest in morality at first, but he gained an appreciation for his social responsibility as a filmmaker from Isao Takahata (who made Princess Kaguya and Grave of the Fireflies, and is probably INFP or ISFP), and who he later split with. One of his complaints about Takahata, that is described in the documentary The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, is that Takahata isn't tidy or on time and makes a mess of the studio!"Whether you can draw like this or not, being able to think up this kind of design, depends on whether or not you can say to yourself, 'Oh, yeah, girls like this exist in real life.'" doesn't sound very INFP to me...I'll point to the quote that exceedingdeath used which seems very un-INFJ. INFJs like to leave some things up to the viewers imagination but when they do they very much do it on purpose but also still have a symbolic meaning for it. Whereas that quote seems more anti-Te. All the things in his films seem more Ne over Ni too.I think comparing him and his movies to Tim Burton would probably be an effective way to type him.“This is about when Spirited Away was released. I’ve never explained why Chihiro knows that her parents are not among the group of pigs towards the end of the film. Those people who are constantly seeking explanations often say that it’s illogical. However, I don’t think those kinds of things are important. After all the things she’s experienced up to that point, Chihiro simply knows that her parents aren’t there. You ask why she knows, but knowing is human life. That’s all it is. If you can point out that something is lacking here or there, then the audience should fill in the gaps for themselves. I don’t want to waste time thinking about those kinds of things.” ---------------------------------------------------- What do you think about this quote?. I've always thought of him as an INFP; does this confirm it or rather point at INFJ? It seems to both be an anti-T and pro-N way of thinking. Is this showing repressed Te or rather Ni ?

One of the greatest INFP filmmaker. ^^
