Default Fictional Characters

Has anyone tried putting together a list of fictional characters by their MBTI types?

I know it's dubious, but for whatever reason I kind of enjoy it. Some of the lists online are mind-numbingly terrible, and I've found that what's generated through discussions like this tend to be much more accurate.

Here's some of what I'd propose.

ENTP:

- Calvin
(Calvin and Hobbes) -- definitely *not* INFP like you see some places. This kid is the living embodiment of Ne. Could be ENFP too, but some comics show a more utilitarian approach (esp. involving business schemes and whatnot), so I made him T.

- Gregory House (House, M.D.) -- Yes, I think he's Extraverted. Definitely *not* an NTJ in my opinion. Where's the Ni? Could also be INTP, and I could maybe believe ISTP, but it'd take some pretty strong evidence for S. Honestly, I'm about 50/50 on ENTP or INTP for him.

- Doc Emmett Brown (Back to the Future)

INTP:

- Temperance Brennan (Bones) -- INTJ might also be reasonable, but I see a fantastic absence of Fe, which makes me think Ti dominant. Also she doesn't seem to really have control over her team, which I'd expect from an NTJ.

- Juno MacGruff (Juno) -- I think the NTP part is pretty aparent from her use of language, her ability to lightly cope in a difficult emotonal situation, and her utilitarianism. I made her INTP because I sense Ti dominance; I think an ENTP would be more excitable and imposing on their environment. She seemed somewhat of "soft" and sort of withdrew instead of facing some issues head on. Could be ENTP though.

INTJ:

- Eric Foreman (House, M.D.) -- has the Te penchant for established procedure and empirical evidence, which clashes with House's Ti-driven plans that end up subverting the evidence they've gathered through tests. Ni presents itself in his willingness to shift conceptual perspectives during some episodes, even if they're contradictory (a few good ones regarding religion especially).

- Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs) -- any debate here?

- Stewie Griffin (Family Guy) -- I'm not sure if he's INTJ or ENTJ. Any argument here would be dandy. (On a side note, Extraverted NTs are hard to spot because, well, all NT Rationals are going to seem a little aloof.)

ENTJ:


- Eric Cartman
(South Park) -- I hate to include characters like this that are blatantly shallow, but whatevs. The Te implimentation and Ni conceptual vision are apparent with Cartman.

- Perry Cox (Scrubs) -- some people think he's ENTP, but I think ENTJ because he's more overtly directive. Compare to, say, House, who controls his team mostly through mind games and manipulation -- that's a halmark of Keirsey's informative interaction style attempting to manage people.

ENFP:

- Molly Clock
(Scrubs) -- Heather Graham's guest character. *Amazingly* good characature of an ENFP. I dated one so I should know, lol.

INFP:

- John "J.D." Dorian (Scrubs) -- could maybe be ENFP, but people don't give Extraverts enough credit -- they can have rich fantasy lives, too. Still, I'm kinda 50/50 on ENFP or INFP.

- Brian (Family Guy) -- lots of people think he's INTP, but I'm not convinced he's a Ti dominant. INFP fits better overall, I think.

INFJ:

- Yoda (Star Wars) -- similar to Calvin, he's the living embodiment of Ni. Could be INTJ then, too, but I don't sense the NT utilitarianism with him. Hardcore Ni though, sheesh.

ENFJ:

- Allison Cameron
(House, M.D.) -- the morally vigilant counterpart to House. Definite ENF, but J or P could go either way: I tend to side with ENFJ because I don't sense Ne dominance with her, even though she has Fi coming out the ears. Still, the Fe/Ni combo can look a lot like the morally certain Fi.

- Michael Scott (The Office) -- definite Fe. I don't sense much Si because he's pretty willing to discregard the established protocol; attempts to be creative, fresh, and fun; and has weird Ni-like compulsions towards symbolism (e.g. the episode where they had the funeral for the bird). Lots of people seem to think he's an ESFP, but the motive behind his performing is almost always Fe-driven.

ESTP:

- Christopher Turk (Scrubs) -- could also be ESFP. Not sure.

- Nick Naylor (Thank You for Smoking) -- basically the archetypal ESTP Promoter.

ISTP:

- Robert Chase (House, M.D.) -- very, very utilitarian. Doesn't seem all that interested in theoretical discussion, but can keep up when need be.

- Stephen Hyde (That 70's Show) -- agree/disagree?

- Han Solo (Star Wars) -- maybe ESTP, but he seems less promoting and more individualistic, which is basically how Keirsey describes ESTP vs ISTP.

- Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop) -- SP impulsiveness with the fluid logic of Ti.

- Agent K (Men in Black) -- Tommy Lee Jones' character, if you don't remember. Lenore Thomson uses him as an example of a Ti dominant in her book, and he's a convincing one: disregard for protocol, fluid, in the moment and wholistic logic, sardonic wit, and even the symbology of losing one's identity by becoming an Agent is pretty typical of an inferior Fe.

ESFP:


- Michael Kelso (That 70's Show) -- the performer.

- Peter Griffin (Family Guy) -- same as above; kind of insensitive though, so maybe ESTP.

- Tim Taylor (Home Improvement) -- good example that not all SPs are good with their hands, lol. Has the in-the-moment performance aspect of ESP, but lacks the mechanical aptitude that typically comes with STP.

- Jim Halpert (The Office) -- I see people say ENTP for him sometimes, but I don't get it. I don't see NT for him at all, or T for that matter. But I'm willing to hear arguments.

ISFP:

- Luke Skywalker (Star Wars) -- I remain unconvinced he's an INFP, but I'd be willing to hear it out.

- Pam Beesly (The Office) -- the quiet, artistic secretary. I think she's a good example of ISFP.

ESTJ:

- Bob Kelso (Scrubs) -- utilitarian to the point of being percieved as heartless. Unlike an ENTJ, doesn't ruthlessly stir the establishment, however.

ISTJ:

- Hank Hill (King of the Hill) -- has the gentle yet stern and conventional ambience that seems to come with Si/Te.

ESFJ:

- Carla Espinoza (Scrubs) -- Fe dominance all the way. Not an N, so I went with ESFJ.

ISFJ:

- Samwise Gamgee
(Lord of the Rings) -- gentle, supportive -- the archetypal friend and companion. Sort of set in his ways, but he is what he is.

If you have any ideas yourself, please contribute. I'm probably wrong on a lot of those.

If there's enough discussion and ideas, I might end up making a master list if we come to any tentative conclusions. (I know, a long shot for a group of INTPs, haha).

How about Peter Sellers?

He is not the Pink Panther (ESTP), more likely an Eagle (INTP) ???

I have no idea what Peter Sellers' type would be -- he was brilliant, though. Are you talking about his type or the characters he played?

So it's been a looong time since I read the Foundation series. Please remind me about Arkady Darell.

Dr Who I could see as an INTP.

This thread has reminded me of Thomas Covenant ( The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever) and the more I think about it the more certain I am he'd be an INTP.

Social outcast, riddled with self-doubt, emotionally crippled... doomed to save the world if only he'd face up to it and believe .

i've always thought of House as INTP (partly because he embodies quite a few of my views on life) because of his dislike for talking to patients and his inability to express whats really going on inside his head. person that made the list has a very similar taste in television that i do (particularly House and Family Guy lol).

I know there is actually a House, M.D. personality test. I think I saw the link to it on this forum somewhere.

I wonder about Tyler Durden (the Brad Pitt and Edward Norton versions) from Fight Club. What type is the real Tyler Durden and what is it he desires to be as projected in the Brad Pitt version?

Although, if he had a disorder mbti may not apply to him I guess.

I would say Doc Brown is an INTP. Pretty much any mad scientist character is an INTP. The fact the he is a recluse would suggest he isn't E. His excited nature is not E, its classic INTP, when they "Finally invent something that works!" or "It's ALIVE!" in the case of Frankenstein.

hm, interesting. i'd almost say that Nortons character is INTJ (he stays very much in his head but has a pretty materialistic personality, which is why i don't say INTP) but i could be wrong. Pitt's character is definitely extroverted and i'd say very much a J (he knows what he wants out of fight club/project mayhem and will get it no matter what) and probably Intuitive (to come up with such a plan) but i don't know. anyone more familiar with this kind of stuff have any thoughts?

and by the way, i did see that House test, and i tested as, you guessed it, House.

I know Gandalf is hotly debated as INTP/INTJ

I'm no good at this, but I'll toss out a few starwars ones...


Han - ISTP
Definitely an SP, no planning, mechanical, easy. I get the impression that he broods a lot more than he's social, a typically introverted trait.

Luke - INFP
...He isn't.... micromanaging so much. He's an idealist at heart, he's a big picture person. He looks at the force as it embodies all things, not in specific instances... INFP. Besides, he isn't a huge risk taker. He's a pilot, but he doesn't do it for the THRILL. that's why he isn't SP.

Leia - XSFJ
Politician, detail work, committees, a people person, though could easily be a T type. J, fuels punctuality for politic-ness. I'm not so sure I/E. I'd GUESS I, but I could easily be wrong.

Anakin Skywalker - ESFP
Okay, he's really an outgoing person, he's emotional, and a risk taker. Oh, and he's a mechanic and a pilot. All SFP traits. Sometimes I find I/E the hardest to judge really...

I'd like constructive criticism...

I'd say Sherlock Holmes definitely strikes me as an INTP.
Detached when thinking, tremendous use of logical deduction and analyzing, introverted, often said to be cold and unfeeling, truth-seeker, lover of classical music...


I really, really enjoy those books.

Poirot from Agatha Christie's books is INTJ. Most of the 'general/leader' type characters in fantasy books seem to be ENTJ, like Axis in Sara Douglass's books. The Count of Monte Cristo (after the prison, not before) is a tough decision, though I'm inclined to think that he's INTJ, but has an extremely wide and eccentric array of interests (INTP) but can also verbally sharp (ENTP). Before the prison, he seems to be ESTP or something like that.

Hmm... Being verbally sharp would require me to actually pay more attention to the outside world. I'm content with being detached. I figure, I don't have to show I have a quick-wit for people to realize I'm smart --- even if they think I'm weird because I'm always lost in thought.

Introversion is the way to go!

Of course he's an INTP, however, like many of us, he does stray into INTJ catagory sometimes. Although, I think the tenth doctor (the current one) is an INTP, the others will definately be slightly different.

ESFJ would be my best guess

Extroverted?: Silly cloths and behaviour, interest in making others happy.
Introverted?: Lives mostly alone in factory, likes to keep secrets, socially detached.

Intuitive: Reacts calmly to dramatic situations, short external attention span.

Emotional?: Behaviour is unstable, often prone to signing, dancing and expressive frivolity.
Intellectual?: Inventive, less-compassionate, has internal moral and emotional support.

Perceptive?: Keeps opinions secret, spends the entire movie observing before deciding end.
Judgmental?: Much of the theme is based on good and bad behaviour, their distinctions.

Why did I block that again?

Hey thanks, that lead me to this site, which has a pretty big list of links to tv shows and movies. Already spent some hours on these

Peter Parker is probably INTP. I don't know about the comics, but the movies definitely portray him as such. He starts off as a nerd who can't vocalize his feelings for Mary Jane. He makes money by being a photographer for his own alter ego, which is probably the most introverted thing you can do. After high school, he majors in Physics, which is an INTP-heavy field.

Bruce Wayne is ISTJ. I feel that if I were in Batman's shoes, I would be having in-depth psychological discussions with all of the criminals instead of beating them up. In fact, I think I would become a criminal simply because laws and society have always seemed superficial to me. Living in Gotham would reduce their legitimacy in my eyes completely.

And what would the Joker be?

A few friends and I were debating this a while back, and we couldn't seem to agree on anything except that he was some sort of xxTP type.

I would argue that his personality is dominated by the Artisan need for freedom over the NT need for competency. From there he seems to most naturally fit the ESTP "Promoting" Artisan role as described by Keirsey.

A good case can be made for the other xxTP types, though -- especially if you go from cognitive functions. But I generally find it easier to use Keirsey's temperament theory, unless the presence of a cognitive function is overwhelmingly obvious (e.g. the Ne of Calvin, from Calvin an Hobbes).

After some google detective work, the general consensus online seems to be ENTP, which doesn't seem unreasonable.

What about Hamlet? I see his emotional outbursts, his brooding, his reproaching himself for said emotional outbursts... I don't know how to interpret him.

You can't help but try to piss of the administrators, can't you? This time Jesin...

Well, how should i know? The information is coming from a comedian here, so...There could be a language misinterpretation. Though, the Asians (yeah, stereotype) do have some strrange eating habits...

So I've been watching a LOT of TV since I don't have any classes and have nothing to do.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Dennis - ESTP
Mac - ESTP
Frank - ESTP
Dee - ESFP
Charlie - ISFP

Arrested Development

Michael - ESTJ
George Michael - ISFJ
G.O.B. - ESTP
Buster - ISFJ
Lindsay - ESFP
Tobias - ENFP ?
Maeby - ESTP
George Sr. - ESTP
Lucille - INTJ ?

Bones

Brennan - INTP
Booth - ESFJ
Zach - INTP
Hodgins - ISTP
Angela - ISFP
Cam - ENTJ

Grey's Anatomy

Meredith - ISFP
Yang - INTJ

Linus from Peanuts, of course. I named my son Linus, after Linus Pauling, Linus Torvald, Linus Larrabee and Linus from Peanuts ... I'd say three of the four of them are INTXs.

MAD MEN
Don - ISTJ, but part of me thinks ENTJ, kind of a field marshall type.
Peggy - INXJ - What do you think? Originally, I was certain that she was an SJ, but I'm second-guessing.
Pete - ISFP
Betty - ISFP (interesting that I read Pete and Betty to be the same ... now that I think of it, they do have a lot of similar qualities, Betty is what Pete would be like, were Pete a hot woman)
Joan - ESFJ
The big boss whose name I forget is the only INTP I think. Shockingly low numbers of NTs for an ad agency. Rachel Mencken perhaps also is an NT, maybe INTJ. Sal might be as well.

THE WIRE - The police are full of SJs, but I love Lester, the lone INTJ. The code cracker guy whose name I forget may be an INTP, like an absent-minded professor who finds himself in the police department.

THE SIMPSONS - Lisa Simpson - Seems like an INTP to me.

FREEKS AND GEEKS
Seth Rogan seems secretly INTP. He doesn't talk much, but whenever asked, he's always thought everything through. His attraction to the Band Girl seems to confirm. You get the feeling that in 2-5 years he'll end up in some working-class version of an NT job, like a surveyor.
Lindsay's a total INFJ
Haverchuck is an ESFP (pity the SP born in a NT body), as is the blonde girl
Jason Segal's an ISFP, I think.

ROYAL TENENBAUMS
Etheline - INTJ
Royal - ESFP
Margo - ISFP
Richie - INFJ
Chas - ESTJ - Four minutes, forty-eight seconds. We're all dead. Burned to a crisp.
Eli Cash - ESFJ

I think Lisa is an INFJ. I don't think INTPs are geared towards aggressive activism or youthful wangst.
