what movies as a whole is an INFJ type movie?

here's one: Dances With Wolves

The Postman?

Waterworld?

The Legend of 1900?

Akira Kurasawa's "Dreams . . .", or "Ikuru".
Sometimes I feel like Jack from "nightmare before Christmas", others I relate to Sally.

I think I've watched Dances With Wolves about ten times, just love it.
Also, maybe a woman thing but the tragic love story of Titanic really got me.

That is easy. Any movie in which the main character has something which they wish to protect and the go on a journey of self transformation and personal growth in their quest to do so. For example...

The Kingdom of Heaven
Star Wars
The Lion King
The Matrix

I liked Titanic also. I remember falling asleep and then waking up as everything was going to hell. I think I damn near had to change my underwear when I saw that ship going down. Vulgar, maybe. True, very.

The ninties were a good decade.

I just finished watched "The World's Fastest Indian" (2005) with Anthony Hopkins. It is now officially one of my all time favorite movies. It's great INFJ fodder!

That was so fake!! It was great seeing him bounce around like that!! . . . I've always thought that Ralph Fiennes is the modern-day Anthony Hopkins. They can bo be so gentle and brutal at the same time . . . tender, malicious, cold, passionate . . .

Sorry Shai, but the only thing in the least bit unnerving about John Malkovitch is that he's managed to convince some pretty decent producers that apathy is the same as acting . . .

This is based on Virginia Woolf's novel.

How about "life is beautiful"? That movie was absolutely amazing it makes me cry every time. It projects how your life can change in a split second. The first part of the film is a comedy and the second part is full of drama and heartbreak.

There was an independant film I saw SEVERAL years ago with Gweneth Paltrow it was based in England I cant for the LIFE of me remember the name but its definately one of those!
OOH I found it Sliding Doors! Its a GREAT one! Watch it!

YES! Hopeless romantic trying to help the world in her own personal way... Lost in her imaginative world...

There's this film by Takeshi Kitano called Dolls. It has hardly any dialogues and an amazing scenery. Very dream-like. Strange story.

Shai Gar

Shakespeare in Love. Many dimensions in that film. Frequency. IQ (that whole self betterment thing in these last two). Next and Deja Vu. Those two are good for the whole knowing and looking at the big picture type thing. LakeHouse also has some time involvement mess with the head stuff. MASH.

British shows such as Red Dwarf.

'Happiness'. I wish I were kidding. It's the negative INFJ experience, much the same way 'Dancer in the Dark' is the negative INFP experience.

I've gotten into a lot of Asian cinema lately, and the following have always moved me:

Hero
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
House of Flying Daggers
In the Mood For Love
2046
Grave of the Fireflies
Howl's Moving Castle
Paprika (somewhat).

Interestingly enough, though, I can't watch violent anime. I literally get sick with bad headaches and stomach upset (re: Akira, The End of Evangelion).:m194:

The butterfly effect.One of the best movies i watched.

Shai Gar
01-12-08, 12:43 PM
Ashton Kutcher was actually a good actor in that one. I found it excellent.

I'm not certain if this is more INTP/INTJ but an INFJ I knew once wanted to watch it, and you guys have got some odd choices up there. So... A Clockwork Orange.

01-12-08, 06:33 PM
Clockwork Orange is like an anime movie - it's SO out there and deep. I've only seen it once in my life and like violent anime, it gave me headaches and an upset tummy to watch it. So, I can't see it again.

But it's definitely a good movie if you can stomach it.

01-12-08, 06:38 PM
I'm also a sucker for "intelligent" spy/thriller movies: Six Days of the Condor, the Bourne movies, Marathon Man, you name it.

Not big on the cheese factor in my spy movies, though, so no early Bond flicks make my cut. :mno:

The Royal Tenenbaums! I loved that movie - and the soundtrack, too.

If you liked that, you should check out the BBC TV mini-series. Not quite as high-budget, bu a pretty good adaptation of the first two books.


What about Donnie Darko?

It's, well, kind of dark, introspective, and doesn't make sense in a logical way...

This is more of an INTJ movie in my eyes: The Prestige

I saw the move once, and won't see it again. It was too upsetting for me to watch. The part with Nickola Tesla however, and how the machine made copies of whatever was in it comletely resonated with me.

I would have to add Dark City. The plot is very similar to The Matrix, but I liked it way better.

I forgot all about The Prestige, although I don't know how. INTjish perhaps, but I still love the twists and turns that it takes. It's one of the few movies that I can honestly say I couldn't figure out the twist beforehand, unlike M. Night Shamalan movies :P

Took me a bit to realize David Bowie was Nikola Tesla, I don't know why though. It's one of those things you realize and think yourself a fool for not realizing sooner.

My goodness, you folks all have wonderful tastes in movies!

My own observations:
Doctor Zhivago
Death Note & Death Note 2 (comes off a little INTJ-ish, but there's some good Ni going on)
Hero (100% love this movie!)
The Last Samurai
Amelie (!!!)
The Secret of NIMH
The Four Feathers
The Muppet Movie (kinda)
Lawrence of Arabia (another that comes off a little INTJ/ENTJ-ish)

I love that movie! I cried the first time I saw that movie (I was 12, I think).


I'm a sucker for movies like A Walk to Remember.

I have a confession to make: I'm a male but I really enjoyed A Walk To Remember. :redface:

Does anybody else think that "The Crow" appeals to INFJ revenge fantasies about harming those who harm innocent people? It's about a murder victim who returns from the dead to avenge the deaths of himself and his girlfriend.

09-03-09, 06:39 AM
Stranger Than Fiction (certainly Dustin Hoffman's character, among others)
Wings of Desire (I like to think of the angels as INFJs)
Koyaniqaatsi (a very ponderous, NF-style film)

Want to know something weird? I was watching that movie with some cousins and had never seen it before. Got to the scene where he offers to buy the cookies and she gets upset. I had just gone through almost that exact same thing with a friend of mine in real life. It was really creepy.

Awesome movie! :D

Haha, well, I'm a female and I happen to love all of those movies (except Gladiator, which I have not yet seen).

I don't think it matters so much that Donnie Darko isn't an INFJ; it still strikes me as an INFJ-ish movie.

Pan's Labyrinth
Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast

The Dark Crystal

Heh, in the vein of westerns(Although this one in particular is a spaghetti), I'm going to throw out an oddball

I love that Amelie has been mentioned here numerous times. When I saw this thread it was one of the first movies that came to mind.

It's also funny because the movie was recommended to me by an ex who said she reminded him of me, and I never knew he saw me that clearly...

Anyway, it was only mentioned one other time on this thread but I felt the need to reiterate it.

I'm not entirely sure, but Garden State strikes me as an INFJ movie.

By the way, I love this thread, and almost every single movie mentioned so far. :)

20-05-09, 07:34 AM
My Summer of Love is one of my favorite movies. I'd try to describe it but it's late and I'd probably fail. It's basically about two girls and their lesbian relationship. The scenery and production is amazing, and make the film worth watching all by themselves. The splendid acting is the icing on the cake.

Don't watch it if you're offended by strong "anti"-religious undertones. My Christian roommate seemed to be offended, but he's also offended if I mention death metal, so there you go...

Chopsifer
20-05-09, 05:24 PM

The word ghost suddenly reminded me of an independant film I saw once.
It was very good and definitely an INFJ movie

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0165798/)

Pearline (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0934563/): Can't you understand what he's saying?
Ghost Dog (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001845/): No, I don't understand him. I don't speak French, only English. I never understand a word he says.
Pearline (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0934563/): And that's your best friend?
Ghost Dog (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001845/): Yeah.

Him and his friend often end up saying the same thing in their own language.

Anything by Charlie Kauphman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind etc.). Synecdoche is actually INFJ squared :D

A few movies by Tom Tykwer: "Run Lola Run" and "Princess and the Warrior" are highly recomended.

Someone already mentioned "Amelie", "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon", "Lost in Translation" (Scarlett Johansson character in this movie seems very INFJ-ish).

In anime the best representation of my character type was in "12 Kingdoms".

AmelieShe did strike me as INFJ.

"A Series of Unfortunate Events" has a strongly NF vibe to it, although I don't know it would be specifically INFJ. I loved the movie.

"Jane Eyre" I think is a good depiction of an INFJ. I think Mr. Rochester is probably an ENTJ. They had a deep connection where she could sense his calling out to her from a distance.

Ha. It's funny for Amelie and Jane Eyre to share a type. Those are two rather different cultural expressions, but I still think perhaps it is the case.

I honestly don't know what type this would fit, but I am ESTATIC for the new Alice in Wonderland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_in_Wonderland_%282010_film%29) movie. Tim Burton is directing it, and he is my fav director. It is going to be so amazing.

I am drawn to very strange things, but it doesn't seem like a universal INFJ trait to me. Maybe this would fit ENTP? I honestly don't know.

The Painted Veil

You see the growth and maturation of this woman and the relationship she has with her husband in cholera-ridden 1930s China. Meanwhile, a cultural (communist) revolution is going on and, of course, there is much social (modern and historical) insight to draw on from that. This movie is an Ni/Fe roller coaster (of all good sorts).

I love it (and not just because it is set in China and has Edward Norton looking very handsome :D)

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to IndigoSensor again.



I can't wait for this movie, and I tend to be drawn to the strange as well. Tim Burton is amazing. If it's not a universal INFJ trait then it's just something we have in common. Although, I have a close INFP friend who has similar taste in movies as I do.. maybe it's our P side?

Somehow I'm not too excited about Tim Burton movies - they feel too artificial and lacking depth for me. Yeah I know that I'm not doing enough justice to one of the most creative directors and his movies are still a mile ahead from the general crowd. The only exception was Sleepy Hollow where I really liked the actors.

When Alice comes up I will watch it .

IndigoSensor
20-07-09, 08:46 AM
Really? I think his artistic style has so much depth to it to me. Maybe it is a different kind of depth then what you are used to viewing. It's more of an esoteric kind of depth that really doesn't have "thought" tied to it. It is more of just visual depth that leaves you feeling like you have been introspective all day without actually having done so.

I also LOVE his wife as an actress, Helena Bonham Carter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helena_Bonham_Carter). She is so cool.

Tamagochi

That might be the thing because I prefer mental and emotional depth over visual. Ni almost feels bored when everything is shown in such great detail :) For example visually void of special effects "The Man from Earth" left a bigger impression on me than most Tim's movies.

But maybe I'm babbling nonsense and should pay more attention next time.

I wouldn't go that far, but the man is an amazing INFJ. I am sincerely unable to think of any artist that creates more accurate portrayals of the INFJ mind set, sensibilities, expectations, and experience.


You left out Laputa, Kiki's Delivery service and Porco Rosso.

I did. I don't find Laputa or Porco Rosso to be as poignant examples of the INFJ experience as the other films. They are great films, but not the start to finish INFJ masterpieces that the others are. Laputa leans toward INFP with the flights of fancy, and Porco Rosso... is more of an INFP/INTP film with the mystery to unfold and reason through. I almost didn't add Totoro because of the lean toward INFP. The film has no conflict, and yet is an absolute masterpiece. How is that possible?

I left out Kiki's Delievery service solely as an oversight. It is definietly an INFJ masterpiece film, start to finish.

Okay, I'm going to stop loving on Miyazaki now before I make a mess.

hmm it has never occurred to me but it could make sense. People like him seem to transcend their personality and find appealing points to a much wider audience. Actually I was introduced to Miyazaki by INTJ friend who seemed to have equal respect for his works.

As for characters that are displayed I've noticed a lot of ENFJs (Kiki, Haku, Howl) and INFPs (Chichiro, Mononoke, Sophie). Only Nausicaa looks like a genuine INFJ.

Kiki, Haku, and Howl are profoundly INFJs. So are Totoro, Yukul, and Ashitaka, and the Forest Spirit.

ENFJ examples in Miyazaki's films include Zeniba, Lin, Markl, Moro, Lady Eboshi, and Turnip Head.

The all time INFJ movie: Bin-Jip (or 3-Iron). I can't believe this one hasn't been mentioned. If you haven't seen it yet: Watch it! A very emotional, very powerful movie. Two damaged people who find eachother in a movie that barely has dialogues in it. You can't get more INFJ than this. :)

Here's my fav's list, but im interested in feedback since my powers of "typing" are still under developed. I'm interested to see what you all think.

Man on Fire - Tony Scott's stuff is quality IMHO.
T2- Judgment Day - (I think I just admire the justice aspect)
Crouching tiger hidden dragon
Fracture - Anthony Hopkins. - not sure why this stands out, I just liked it.
The Chronicles of Riddick
Pitch Black
Better off Dead

of course the matrix, star wars, lord of the rings, ect...

Confessions of a male INFJ/P, I actually liked The Notebook. Emo yes, however there was much depth to it.

Does anyone else have a a rough time staying entertained in movies? I think that the Ni function makes it tough for me to not see whats coming. typically, I find myself bored throughout some films because I already know whats going down. anyone else?

Totally. I have the same thing with movies. I can't possibly stay focussed on a movie that's overly predictable, not even on a lazy day. :) The movie doesn't even have to have a spectacular story, I can enjoy a film because of it's beautiful scenery etc.., but it always has to.. match in a way. I have to be moved by it and feel involved, so it's important that it's unpredictable and can surprise me.

And The Notebook is great, without a doubt an INFJ movie :m183:

Kitara seems pretty Fi, though...
It's hard to say. Maybe I don't want her to be infj, because she can be too motherly. Maybe she is more isfj, although that isn't Fi anyways.
Hmm.

And no wonder my ESTP friend is obsessed with Sokka. And all other typical ESTP cartoons (funny, raw, prankster-type)

And about the last mimzy...
I hated that movie. I can see how it has an infj vibe to it, though. It's about regaining spiritual conciousness etc...so as for as the theme, yes.

But the execution was awful and hokey. :P

The last movie that I watched that really stuck with me was Lord Of War. Its a good objective view of good and evil. What is good to some is evil to others. There is a quote in it that says something like "The key to survival is never going to war, even with yourself." or something like that. It made a lot of sense to me. Not going to spoil the ending but the person I wanted to win, did.
Other than that, I watch mostly absurd comedies. Monte Python, Cheech & Chong, etc. I really like Squidbillies and ATHF. Out of 45 movies, I only have 5 that arent comedy. Saving Private Ryan, Menace II Society, Full Metal Jacket, A River Runs Through It and Romeo + Juliet.

The mood of the movie (and several other characters) are so very INFJ. The other main character is definately INFJ--the ideal really. Katsumoto is a confident, focused personalilty. He is what we strive for. Ken Watanabe is us!! It's why I love the oriental films so much. So internal and personal. Here it is:

I think 'The Woman In Black' (based on the novel by Susan Hill) might be an example of an INFJ horror film, just 'cause it's a bit different in the way it's completely subtle and mostly implicit.
However, I'm not sure if it might be more INFP or INTJ ^^"

'Happiness'. I wish I were kidding. It's the negative INFJ experience, much the same way 'Dancer in the Dark' is the negative INFP experience.

I have to agree with Morgan here Tamgochi. Like Cruise or not, The Last Samuri is a great movie--his best in my opinion. And this movie just drips INFJ. Ken Wantabe OWNS this film whenever he is one the screen. It's an action flick about self-discovery and redemption.

Agreed.


I am guessing it is our P side. I mean, what is alice in wonderland but pure nonsense, haha.

At the same time, though, it's very logical! Which is what I love. And it's a great piece of allegory; I mean, really, how ridiculous must the world of adulthood seem through a child's eyes?

I am mostly excited because it seems like the film is going to be based more off of Through the Looking-Glass than the first book. That one's my favorite of the two and has some of my favorite quotes in it, like the one about running as fast as you can just to stay in one place.

But there really wasn't a point to this post other than me adding on that I also love Tim Burton and Alice in Wonderland a whole lot. I even named my cat Dinah, if that gives you a clue.


Really? I think his artistic style has so much depth to it to me. Maybe it is a different kind of depth then what you are used to viewing. It's more of an esoteric kind of depth that really doesn't have "thought" tied to it.

I also LOVE his wife as an actress, Helena Bonham Carter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helena_Bonham_Carter). She is so cool.

I agree with your first point. Like, there was a ton of really great stuff in Edward Scissorhands. Nearly everything visual in that film seems like it could be symbolic but very subtly.

Helen Bonham Carter is so versatile! I've loved her in every role I've seen her in, from Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter to Ophelia in Hamlet. She's just such a great actress.

I've liked all the shows from the English channels that I've watched on bbc and E4 even though I'm from America. Misfits, Skins, The Inbetweeners and Top Gear.

I really like the "period pieces" like Austen remakes and other classics (not Hollywood renditions though... BBC).

Hi, I'm new.

I was thinking of a few that haven't been mentioned. Some are old movies, but they're still good and I feel they contain INFJ elements...

The Notebook
Dragonfly [Kevin Costner]
Dances with Wolves [also Costner]
Count of Monte Cristo
Dracula [the one that tells the legend and he's not yet a vampire]
The Hiding Place
Gray Owl
Braveheart
What Dreams May Come
and although I know Windtalker was mentioned already, I have to mention it again. That movie truly touches me.
Tecumseh
Twelve Monkeys [mainly because it requires a lot of thought and perception]
The Time Machine [with Guy Pierce]

I know there are so many more, but these are a few that came to my mind as I was reading over everyone's comments.

07-04-11, 06:02 AM
Yep, haha...pretty sad.

Oh, here's one that I discovered sort of by accident. It was REALLY and old one and stared Ingrad Bergman. Inn of the Sixth Happiness. It's based on the true story of Gladys Alyward and taken from a book called The Small Woman. Anyway, it's about this British woman who wants to be a missionary to China. She ends up going to China at a time when Japan was invading and slaughtering civilians. She ultimately takes in over 100 orphans and leads them through the mountains, across the Yellow River to Shanghai [I think that's right]. It's a very moving story and so portrays how an INFJ will believe in an ethical or moral cause against all odds. She even turns down what was sure to be a life long romantic relationship so that she may fulfill her purpose.

Sorry to ramble, but it's a long lost movie with a lot of meaning in it. And I suppose whether a movie has any "meaning" is what makes it worth watching for me.

Shawshank Redemption and Schindler's List would be my top 2 picks, not because the characters are INFJ but the stories overall are.

There are others though...

Pump up the Volume (Early 90's Christian Slater flick)
The Legend of Bagger Vance
Gandhi
Moon
Seven Years in Tibet
The Punisher (Just good old fun Introverted payback)
Unforgiven (Ditto)
Count of Monte Cristo (already mentioned as well)
Batteries Not Included
Wall-E
Up
The Bucket List
The Good Shepherd (maybe more INTJish)
The Book of Eli
Glory
And of course... The Princess Bride

Uh oh. I don't like the Princess Bride. Am I allowed to be here? Haha...I dislike it because I've never seen it all the way through, something allllways disrupts it, and I thought it was sincere the first few times because I would always start watching it half way through. NOW I know it's a parody....

But I still don't like it...

A couple of movies my kids and I have been watching lately: "A Little Princess" and "Fried Green Tomatoes". Sarah in "A Little Princess" is extremely INFJ, and so is Ruth in "Fried Green Tomatoes". I think the story in "A Little Princess" is an especially INFJ story, which makes me wonder if Frances Hodgeson Burnett was INFJ too.

I don't really see how movies can be a psychological type, but I will say that a lot of the movies being called INFJ seem to be really girly or like sentimental pap.

Pay It Forward is actually one of only a very few movies that I aggressively despise, and is pretty much my go-to film whenever someone asks me to pick a worst-ever. I seriously think that Nazi propaganda and gay porn have more artistic value.

That said, I recently saw a film called 'Into The Wild' and I thought it was incredible. A little syrupy, but still a great film for anyone who is kinda selfish, thinks that society is BS, and wants to get away from it all.

One of my favorite movies. I don't know if there's anything INFJ about loving Clint Eastwood's Westerns, but I'm an enormous fan. Used to have a huge poster of him from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in my room.

Also, if you liked Unforgiven, you ought to watch High Plains Drifter. Not as good, but still great in its own way. Classic Eastwood.

I think a lot of his movies like The Outlaw Josey Wales and Pale Rider and well... nearly all of them, also portray the standard INFJ/INFP fantasies of getting even and making things right. He also plays a very low-key character is most of them, so it's easy to figure out where he's coming from :)

Hehe. I think of it that way too. Self-absorbed ENTP getting carried away with the excitement of his Ne ideas, not heeding the warnings of his dear INFJ friend's Ni...

The characterizations aren't very deep, but they symbolize male and female archetypes so well that it works.

Not as sure about Sally being an INFJ, because that could be me projecting. ^_^; But, funnily, I've had tons of people say I remind them of Sally in appearance and mannerism. I don't know how it's possible to look like a stop motion puppet though...

Garden State, Invictus, and 500 Days of Summer, I think, all deal really well with the Ni-Fe dichotomy, and all have protagonists who are at least NF, if not full-out INFJs. (For instance, I've heard Tom Hansen described as INFP) Also, they're possibly my three favorites, so...

Good point. :D ...Yet somehow it can be done. ;)
I've been told I'm like Sally too. And I did have a huge crush on Jack when the movie came out. This cartoon artist I met once in a bar that I shared this info with actually thought it was so weird he incorporated it into his comic and I appeared as the protagonists new love interest who had a pumpkin fetish and in order to impress her the protagonist wore a carved out pumpkin on his head for a while.

...but I may be projecting too. I'm seeing INFJ everywhere now... The old lady who has way too many cats and talks to herself at the supermarket ....INFJ! Wino passed out behind the buss stop... possible INFJ in a Se-inferior grip! I look at the eggplants at the produce stand...they are like the INFJs of the vegetable kingdom! ...and I'm typing puppets now... all this means I've been at home too long. ;D

In any case...It's a super charming movie! :)

Man of Steel. Which by the way, as my coworker pointed out yesterday, has a third trailer out now. Can't wait to see it. The movie is just one big metaphor and it's awesome. Now that I think about it...if you ask many people about this movie you will get mixed responses that paint the PERFECT picture of how someone would describe an INFJ.
