I like how important persons in history mystically turns in to INxx in here.She also disliked to give away a pre-conceived idea of anything, she thought people (a new couple) should have brainstormed ideas themselves and kept them private. By the time of her death in 1962, it was highly possible she was an INTJ.
That sounds like inferior Te to me.When under stress, Marilyn Monroe is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Marilyn wasn't happy. She hated being famous, she was aware that she was a 'sex object' in the eyes of men and she hated that. I think when she was alive she was just all around very unhappy, even though she sometimes didn't show it. Now, she's probably happy, who knows.Oh well, what sad lives actresses must have led, I don’t understand why each one of them died un-naturally? Whitney, Marilyn, Candle in the wind…:sad: The final years of Marilyn’s life were marked by illness, personal problem and a bad reputation- to be exact, it was an overdose…”probable suicide” or homicide :sad:…
Yeah ISFP was probably more fitting, it didn’t really matter I guess, 37 years after her death things were a little bit better…
I wonder, is she now smiling down on us and no longer in pain or vice versa? Hmmm....
She must have felt tortured.. wanting a connection so badly and being so lonely but only having men want to get near her because she was beautiful. I think she self-medicated because she couldn't reconcile that; not wanting to be merely a sex object, but being lonely without those who could only see her as that. She was often stigmatized as the dumb blonde but she wasn't dumb at all. So she wasn't taken seriously, especially back in that day in age, though she deserved to be taken as seriously as anyone. It really must have hurt.Marilyn wasn't happy. She hated being famous, she was aware that she was a 'sex object' in the eyes of men and she hated that.

An interesting perspective on happiness. There are two truths, relative truth and absolute truth. Happiness is relative to sadness, beauty is relative to ugliness, self-hate is relative to self-love, famous is relative to ill-famed, awareness is relative to unawareness, dumb is relative to intelligent, borderline is relative to definite, purposeful is relative to purposeless, big is relative to small, good is relative to evil, even life is relative to death. Some even say, men and women are relative winners and losers in all areas of life, based on a number of societal and evolutionary factors. The point is we tend to think of suffering as something we must get rid of and happiness as something we must attain, however these are relative…Marilyn wasn't happy.

That's funny considering I knew INFP's that felt too socially awkward for theatre.Theater seems NF occupation usually. Her need to be taken seriously as an actress and then later on her inability to be apart of this world caused her problems, hence the self medication. I don't think her S is that strong. She often said that the worst thing a woman could ever be was beautiful and that the one thing a woman should always be is loved.
She is definitely Fi dom though. I could see ISFP or INFP.
So, you think that people are slaves to their functions like robots, and have no deeper motivations behind their actions?I guess it's just me but I definitely think quotes can be used to see how a person thinks and can also be used to see/understand what it is that they value. I also never said that SP's couldn't do theater just that I noticed a lot of NF's there. Just as there is a saying that music is more SF friendly typically. I notice that a lot of the I's go into theater/acting and use it as a way to overcome their shyness. It's not particularly about competence persay or "owning the stage". It just seems to call/speak to them a bit more.
