In regards to China:Like his parents, he [Norton] shares a passion for social issues and has been a leading advocate for solar energy, working with British Petroleum to provide solar panels to low-income homes in the L.A. area.
I believe that he is also an intuitive:The US is still sending people in with this notion that we can fix other people's problems without really understanding the depth of the cultural forces that are there."
This is a topic on which Norton speaks with real passion. He's not acting, but like a good Method actor he will store these feelings and retrieve them when needed – when the lights are on and the camera is rolling.
I think he is an XNFP.Arguably, one of Norton's greatest strengths as an actor is his boundless curiosity and his ability to absorb everything around him. Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1969 to Edward Norton Senior, an attorney who works for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and Robin, an English teacher, he was instilled with a love of learning and an insatiable appetite for knowledge. He has a lifelong interest in acting (at 8, he reportedly asked his drama teacher what his motivation was for a scene), and later studied Japanese culture, photography, flying and literature.
Just wreaks ENFP to me. :tongue:Norton has also worked as a waiter, proofreader, and a director's assistant. He plays guitar, professional-level poker and has taken a course in soap-making. Thanks to his grandfather, James Rouse, the inventor of the shopping mall, he developed an interest in architecture and worked briefly at the Osaka branch of his grandfather's company before pursuing an acting career.
