Hanna Bailey from the movie "American Teen" - Enneagram 4.
Baldwin - The first Enneagram type that comes to mind is 8,
but types One and Six can also be very powerful. I'm thinking
of the episode of yelling at his daughter. He issues a statement
where he says his friends would back him up. While an 8 could
do this, an 8 is likely to be more independent and confident
- and not rely on what friends might or might not approve
of. This could suggest a 6. Something else I noticed was that
he apologized to anyone who might have been offended by what
he said to his daughter, but he didn't seem as concerned about
his daughter as he seemed about these people who might judge
him. Could that be his 3 arrow (6 goes to 3)? Would 8 be more
likely to have some 2 influence and want to protect her after
he had thought about it? I couldn't find much about him and
didn't have time to search and search, but I did find direct
quotes. The One would be concerned about reputation and I've
seen Ones exert tremendous powerwhen angry. ANGER! On that
basis, One or 8 seem likely - they are both in the anger triad.
I'll stay with my 8 guess.... Rosie, too.

"American Beauty." Annette
Benning trying to get ahead in real estate is a 3-Achiever,
impressed with another 3 who has made it: Peter Gallagher.
Kevin Spacey is needing freedom. I feel most comfortable calling
him Everyman, kind of a 9. Thora Birch is their teenage daughter.
Her best friend played by Mena Suvari, is a 4. She wants to
be special. The next door neighbor kid, played by Wes Bentley,
is probably a 5. He likes to observe, take movies of leaves
blowing around and other things, has a quiet strength, and
waits for his chance to get away from his abusive father,
Chris Cooper. Directed by Sam Mendes.
Rowlands in Woody Allen's "Another Woman" is a 5 Observer.
Good As It Gets." I just saw this in a book
and had to write it down. Jack Nicholson as a cranky obsessive-compulsive
and Helen Hunt in this movie I really liked. No time now.
I'll get back to it later.
Carnage in 3 parts blog post: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3
See my review on this web site of "Un
Coeur en Hiver." ("Heart in Winter")
About an introverted 5. Good news! On DVD now! Wonderful chamber
music by Ravel.
"Dark Corner." Mark
Stevens is a strange type. Supposed to be tough (8?) but isn't
quite convincing. Lucille Ball is wonderful as a gutsy secretary.
Very different from her "Lucy" persona. Clfton Webb
as an art collector, Karl Kreuger. Film noir.
"The French Lieutenant's Woman."
Meryl Streep plays an introverted longing 4. Jeremy Irons
may be a 5.
"The Girl in the Cafe"
2006 with Bill Nighy. A shy high government official in England
he brings his first girlfriend to a G8 meeting in Iceland.
The role Nighy plays is highly introverted.
"Hamlet," as played
by Laurence Olivier, is a 4. See page 30, "The Happy
"Laura." Otto Preminger's
film noir with Dana Andrews as Mark McPherson, a detective,
Gene Tierney as Laura, Judith Anderson as her aunt, Vincent
Price as Shelby Carpenter, and Clifton Webb as Waldo Lydecker,
an Extraverted Thinker an extraverted One-Perfectionist. He
has elegant taste and rules and manners are important to him.
His performance goes just to the edge in terms of hamminess
- the 4 connection. Excellent movie. 1944. I quoted the costume
designer of this movie, Bonnie Cashin, in THE HAPPY INTROVERT
- in the chapter on creativity:
"Little Miss Sunshine"
Alan Arkin as the grandfather is an 8. Greg Kinear, the father
is a 3. The adolescent son is a 4 with a 5 wing. His 3 wing
might contribute to wanting to be a fighter pilot. The mother
is supportive yet unfocused.... she doesn't know what her
daughter is going to wear in the competition. I think she's
a 9. 2006. I had hoped it would be better than it was.
"The Man in the Train." about a 5. Great French movie.
Men." Full of surprises. Nicholas Cage.OCD.
Hire" is an example of an extreme 5-Observer.
Ball" directed by Marc Forster is an introverted
movie. It isn't in a hurry, but stays quietly with the important
scenes without moving the camera unnecessarily. The director
lets actors Billy Bob Thornton and Halle Berry develop their
characters in the time they need. The subjects of the movie
are alienation/loneliness/being different/gentleness/racism/death/love
in a culture that emphasizes toughness. Heath Ledger is in
this movie too.
Nicholas Cage in "Moonstruck"
is a wonderfully dramatic 4-Romantic.
"Murder, My Sweet."
I'm not going to type anyone in this. I've been watching a
lot of film noir lately and this is one of my favorites. Most
are B films, but this is an A film. Dick Powell and Claire
Trevor. Amazing hair-do's. "Dark Corner" is another
good one. 1944.
"My Architect." A
documentary made by the son of Louis Kahn, Nathaniel Kahn,
about Louis' life and work. One of my favorite movies. I'm
not sure of Louis' Enneagram type. Possibly a 5 or 8. I'm
always open to suggestions.
*"My First Mister."
Albert Brooks is a 6-Questioner 49-year old and Leelee Sobieski
a lonely 4-Romantic 17-year old. Highly recommended.
Stop Wonderland" with Hope Davis is about two
introverts. Not a very good movie. 1998.
"The Passenger" - Antonioni movie made in
1975 with Jack Nicholson. David Locke, an Enneagram 9-Peacemaker,
is a journalist who slides effortlessly into another man's
identity when he finds an adquaintance he resembles has died.
They're in the desert and nobody will know. Then he pretty
much sleep walks into this guy's life as an arms dealer. One
of my favorite movies. Nicholson's commentary on the DVD is
"Pi: Faith in Chaos" -
about a particular Enneagram 5's mind. INTP.
*One of my favorite movies is "Richter:
the Enigma." Sviataslav Richter the great pianist
interviewed and a documentary of his life and performances.
Not be available as DVD in USA. Some used copies for sale
of age movie. He may be a 4/5 wing. Very good!
"The Theory of the Leisure Class."
I put it in here because my recording Beethoven's Opus 27,
first movement is in it. It's more about our culture's type
than individual type and it's not a pretty picture. Directed
by Gabriel Bologna
*"Truly, Madly, Deeply"'s
main character, a recent widow, is an introvert. Excellent
movie. Great music. Great actors.
"The Turning Point."
Anne Bancroft is a ballet dancer 4-Romantic.
Diary" has Two 5-Observers, Glenda Jackson and
Ben Kingsley want to steal some turtles from a zoo. Wonderful.
"Transamerica." Brie is an Enneagram One. This goes along with "The Happy
Introvert" as a road movie where the main character's
true self unfolds. 2005.
