Why Gal Gadot Might Be INTJ

By John Stevens

I disagree with CelebrityTypes’ typing of Gal Gadot as an ESFJ. I think she’s INTJ.

I have read her quotes, read her Wiki entry, saw a lot of her interviews. I just want you to take my impression in for consideration.

At her W interview, pay attention to her story from 0:35 to 1:41 when she’s describing how she didn’t want to take the beauty pageant contest seriously. It’s Ni-Te. An Fe dom would at least be polite in how they don’t want to take part in the beauty pageant. In her case, she’s very sarcastic and blunt about it. Think about it? Notice the sarcasm with the hand-waving associated with beauty queens for 1:01. While she could be charming (maybe because of her accent), she’s no miss congeniality (she prefers Te over Fe). She then would later recall again and again in interviews how she misbehaved the entire way when she competed for the Miss Universe. I don’t think an Fe dom would be as brash as this in misbehaving. I think they are more likely to take the opportunity and “be grateful” for it.

“I really didn’t want to win the Miss Universe pageant,” Gadot told People Magazine. “It was too much being Miss Israel. I was 19. I wasn’t that type of girl. I rebelled. I came down late. I showed up late to everything. They make you wear evening gowns for breakfast. I didn’t wear evening gowns to breakfast. I didn’t wear my makeup. I remember Paula Abdul was part of the judges and she was asking me a question and I just said I don’t understand. And I successfully didn’t win.”

From 1:41 to 2:13 of that same W interview video, she then tells the story of how some agent wanted her to try or audition for an acting role but she thinks it’s stupid because she prefers law and international relationship. In her interview with Interview magazine:

WAYNE: How did you get started?

GADOT: I was Miss Israel in 2004. That’s how I started modeling. And then I had to quit modeling to do my service in the army for two years. Then I went to law and international-relations school. And everything went great until this casting director flew in from England looking for the new Bond girl. She saw my card on the board and she wanted to see me. My agent called me and said, “You have an audition for James Bond. They’re looking for the girl.” And I told him, “Listen, it’s all in English. I’m not an actress. I’m not going to go.” He thought I was kidding with him, because who would say no to—

WAYNE: James Bond.

GADOT: The day of the audition, he called me and asked where I was. And I told him, “I’m in school. I told you I’m not going to go.” And he was like, “What? I can’t believe you meant it, because the casting director is waiting for you. Please, you’ve got to go. Just out of respect, go.” I didn’t learn the scenes. And then I got to the room and I told the casting director, “I’m not an actress. I wasn’t planning on coming here. I apologize for not coming prepared because I’m very professional no matter what I do.” She said, “Well, I’m going to be here for four more hours. Just go through the scenes, and I’ll guide you through it.” Two hours later I got back into the room and we had very good chemistry, the casting director and I. Then I had a callback and another callback and another callback and a match. And throughout this whole process, I realized it takes a lot to act, and it’s so much more interesting than going to law school. I didn’t get the part eventually, but I told my agent, “If anything else comes up, let me know. I’m intrigued.”

Does this sound Fe to you, the way she handled the entire thing? More like, Ni-Te playfulness.

In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBYEctYa8II the Fe-dom typing is more questionable since she just speaks whatever is on her mind, more straightforward and more to the point and not really beating around the bush – she goes around Jimmy Fallon.

Consider this quote of hers:

For me, it was important Wonder Woman wouldn’t be a Goody Two-Shoes. She has a little bit of attitude, and when she fights, she has a smirk on her face. I didn’t want her to be polished. I want people to relate to her.
