Caution & disclaimer: It is unwise to try to identify the personality type of a real person without their consent or allowing them to identify their own type and agree to the characteristics identified however, given the clear set of characteristics articulated in the movie we can ??? that the movie character James Donovan has very strong INFJ traits. Because he is a public figure many of the traits ( confirmed by family, friends & colleagues in interviews) were in evidence in a more public forum than for many people.
James Donovan is recruited against his will by the CIA to negotiate the transfer of U-2 spy plane pilot Garry Powers back to the USA. He is driven by an internal integrity and a rule book that is the Constitution of the US. He follows his very strong belief that it is his duty ( as a lawyer/following the Constitution) that he must defend the rights of a person to hold and act on his personal beliefs even if he did not agree with the same belief structure. There is a tenacity and strength of advocacy in him that is an unshakeable quiet conviction to his belief in the Constitution. He believe in justice and goes through a great deal to make certain a man is given a fair trial. He will however break the rules and follow his own path on behalf of a young soldier others are willing to sacrifice.
