jackson pollock
intj, noc!ea

His family supposedly described him being "childish, troubled, insecure, restive, and driven" as a child, and these traits eventually became more distinct into his adulthood when he developed problems with alcoholism and domestic abuse. "He [Jackson Pollock] had tremendous drive and passion and it was too much for him. Whatever he did wasn't enough. Some people are born with too big an engine inside them. If he hadn't painted, he would have gone mad," recounted Betty Parsons, art dealer and collector, in 1947. Pollock being a sensor is also a little too removed, considering how he practically epitomized artistic inspiration and novelty in many ways, and with casting his psychological problems aside, his general eccentricity marks a strong preference for intuition. He's most likely an INTJ.
