John and Jackie Kennedy … George W. and Laura Bush … and Donny and Marie Osmond. Notice anything they have in common? All are #15 FCILs closely connected to #11s FCALs, though the latter example has the roles reversed. That is, Donnie is an #11 male, while sister Marie is a #15 female. Have you seen them perform together? The duo has been going at it for for 50 years now. Yes, you read that correctly. 50 years!
Critics say they still appeal to all audiences because “their cultural staying power is generational.” To be certain, these two inborn Brain Types aren’t commonly found in the entertainment industry. Notice they’re both Left brain dominant, and therein lies your reason why. Hollywood (or Las Vegas in this case) is dominated by Right brain stars who must be flexible, adaptable, and spontaneous to be successful. So what’s their secret? Donnie and Marie have succeeded by simply staying together and working hard. “We are very rare. I mean I don’t know that many women who have done five-and-a-half decades. We were always told it’s gonna be over, it’s gonna be over, but you keep reinventing, you keep working hard,” says Marie.
And you can imagine, knowing their designs, that it hasn’t always been easy. “You know we have this chemistry and sometimes you can mix chemicals and it can be beautiful or it could be a big bang…and that would be us,” Marie shared. In their case, we have a sneaking suspicion that dominant Inanimate Marie gets her way the majority of the time, while dominant Animate Donny obliges. Well, at least it works!
