But WHICH one would fit - I have starred in several paranormal reality tv series as an internationally- known psychic medium, & psychic crime profiler.
If you are not identified on screen by your actual name, it is an acting credit. Profiler will be entered as a "Character Name"
That "Character Name" will not show up anywhere except on the title page after your name.
That "Character Name" will not show up as a "Known For"
That would make you "Known For" as an Actress.
It all depends on how you were credited in the project.
If you appeared on-camera, the credit should be listed in the Cast section.
Name - Herself: psychic medium
If you worked off-camera, the credit should be listed in the Other Crew/Miscellaneous Crew section.
Name - psychic medium or psychic medium consultant
I hope this helps. Please write back if you need some more assistance.
If I have numerous credits as *Self*
... This topic sort of got sidetracked
with the stand-in situation.
The original question got lost in the mix.
Gonna start a new conversation to get the original question answered...

ljdoncel was correct on the other thread, "self" isn't one of the 40 primary professions, therefore will not be treated as a primary profession for display purposes. Your credits are listed accurately on IMDb in the "self" section, however this option is always disabled from the name page header display across all of IMDb name pages. For example, please see https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0538196/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 where there is no listed profession as the entirety of the filomography is "self".
I hope this helps.
Can I have NOTHING displayed there as in the "John Major" example you provided? (Please say this can be done.)
Or will I constantly have to see that "Miscellaneous Crew" displayed up top of my page - which is so NOT descriptive of the entirety of my work on television throughout my career?
