Whether you think he is a bastard for making Greedo shoot first, or whether you revere him as the great Creator, let's type the father of Star Wars!
I really, really don't think he is an INFP. His movies have no grey area whatsoever, and INFPs thrive in the grey. Plus....he has publicly stated several times that he hates writing. My guess is with INFJ. Although at first I thought perhaps INTJ, maybe he isn't too analytical after all? (who knows, he is a huge perfectionist, as we all know)infj is much more likely. but maybe infp. he is certainly nf. star wars is adventure and fantasy, not science fiction(nt), it's about characters and adventure, not technology. i mean, light sabers and tie fighters are technology of sorts, but not in any functional and in-depth way like star trek.
in all the interviews i've seen of him, he seems totally ignorant of critique against him, he seems pretty irrational in dealing with it. nt's usual respond to critizism in a more constructive manner and is actually able to reason. he has this ego-fantasy loop going on, which is more nf.
secondly, he's kind of a pussy. nt's are more cynical. the producer who worked with him on a new hope and empire also described him as passive and shy. more likely infp to me. i don't see any Fe in his behavior, allthough he does seem a bit collected and calm for an infp(who, with Ne usually are quite quirky).
Well, first of all, how many INTJs adopt two children as a single parent? How many spend more time with their kids than at work, and get their kids involved in their projects?What makes you so certain? I've seen him listed as either INTJ or ENFP. A good storyteller appeals to us on many levels.
I found it fascinating all the way through. And it's totally about the idea of people. The concept of identity. What does it mean to be a person? Are we really nothing more than cogs of society? It's an anti-collectivist masterpiece....his first movie, THX-1138, was as hard as science fiction gets. It was almost borderline boring/uninteresting because it was all about concepts and ideas, but not about people.
Definitely INTJ. He had the grand idea of the greatest universe ever created, with aliens and spaceships and bounty hunters and empires and weird intergalactic trade laws, all using ancient Japanese myth…and he’s also the guy who made the prequels. He loves being the guy to make things, which is why the OT turned out so well, and his unchecked creative control is why the PT turned out so poorly. His ultimate frustration of people not being able to “see his grand vision” for Star Wars (which, while intelligent, was undoubtedly flawed in its execution) was a factor in him selling Lucasfilm. I can’t attest to his overall personality, but INTJs can certainly be introverted and awkward when not working on their projects, and from what I can tell based purely on his actions pertaining to the Star Wars movies, he seems closest to the INTJ archetype.Maybe ENTP or INTJ?
(Directors/Creators seem to be one or the other)
