Alec 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 issued 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? I didn’t have time to search and search. The One would be concerned about reputation and I’ve seen Ones exert tremendous power when angry. On the basis of anger, One or 8 seem likely – both in the anger triad.

“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,

Gena Rowlands in Woody Allen’s “Another Woman” is a 5 Observer.

“As 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 gets in trouble when 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 Introvert.”

“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.

“Matchstick Men.” Full of surprises. Nicholas Cage.OCD.

Monsieur Hire” is an example of an extreme 5-Observer. Michel Blanc

“Monster’s 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.

Next 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 excellent.

“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 on Amazon.com.

“Tadpole.” Coming 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.

*”Turtle 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.
