Charlie Bradbury (Supernatural): ENTP

Dominant Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Charlie is all about possibilities and ideas. She enjoys the fantastical, the novel, and anything different. Charlie has a tremendous amount of energy and tends to speak quickly, with one thought flowing into the next. She has a strong sense of adventure an and, more than anything, yearns for a quest. Charlie is extremely intuitive and she’s very good at reading between the lines and picking up on what’s really going on in most situations. Charlie enjoys LARPing because it gives her a break from regular, mundane reality. “It’s an escape. I mean, here, I’m queen, a hero. Out there in the real world, I’m just hacking out code and chugging coffee all day long.” Because her brain works so quickly, Charlie is typically good at improvising and can keep people talking or distract them when necessary.

Auxiliary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: When Charlie is interested in something, she wants to acquire as much knowledge about it as she possibly can. She’s like a sponge, absorbing every bit of information she can get her hands on until she’s an expert. Although she’s a high school dropout, she has one of the sharpest minds at Roman Inc. Sam and Dean are impressed by the amount of research she has done to become a hunter. Charlie is extremely analytical and is very quick to determine logical inconsistencies, which also aid her in hunting. She can easily assess which theories and explanations are valid and which are impossible. Charlie is incredibly gifted with computers. She can figure out systems and machines very quickly, making her an asset to the Winchesters on numerous occasions. Charlie seeks to understand and wants to know how and why things work.

Tertiary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: While she can be a bit socially awkward, Charlie genuinely cares about people and wants to help them. Even though it’s dangerous, she can’t just abandon Moondoor. She’s their queen and she has to stay and fight for her home and her people. Charlie is extremely empathetic, and is very in tune with the emotions of the people around her. She always picks up on what’s going on between Sam and Dean, and tries to get them to talk to her about what’s going on and how they’re feeling. Charlie typically tries to do the right thing in most situations, though her issues with authority cause her to frequently break the law. When she discovered that the company she was working for was outsourcing to child labor, she outed them, which resulted in her being fired. Charlie is able to use her intuition (Ne) to make fairly accurate assumptions about what’s going on between people (Fe). “And let me guess, in doing so, he did something you didn’t want, and that pissed you off. And you said something that hurt him?”

Inferior Introverted Sensing [Si]: Charlie prefers to focus on the future always wants to move forward. She doesn’t like to talk about her past, and is relatively okay with assuming new identities and leaving things behind. However, she does have difficulty letting go at times. Even though her mother’s condition will never improve, Charlie refuses to take her off of life support, and acquires the money to pay for it by any means necessary. When she can, Charlie sneaks into the hospital and reads her the same books she read as a child. She often makes references, as she is very quick to pick up on similarities between what she’s currently experiencing, and things she has read, watched, or heard in the past, which aid in her sense of humor. She has a habit of quoting movies (often, at very serious or dangerous moments), because she’s “always wanted to say that.” Charlie struggles to respect authority and doesn’t like to play by the rules, which often lands her in hot water.

Ninth Doctor (Doctor Who): ISTP

Dominant Introverted Thinking [Ti]: The Doctor’s internal logic is his greatest asset. The Doctor believes he can solve any problem, and is able to look beyond the facts, allowing him to come to creative solutions. While his logical reasoning often saves the day, it also sometimes lands him in hot water with people because it causes him to be extremely blunt, and he tends to comes across as insensitive or rude. The Doctor is naturally curious and always seeks to understand the hows and the whys in every situation he finds himself in. He is able to make detached decisions based on rationality rather than emotion. He’s okay with allowing Gwyneth to sacrifice herself because the good of the many outweigh just one person’s life. When he first meets Rose, he’s interested in her theory, even though he knows it’s incorrect. But he’s interested in her logical process and how she arrived at her hypothesis (that the Autons are students playing a prank). He’s impressed by her analysis of the situation and declares that it makes sense, even though her assumption is wrong. The Doctor usually thinks to himself and only reveals details that are entirely necessary. He doesn’t want to explain anything to Rose at first, and only gives her brief snippets of information, until she gradually begins to prove herself to be useful to him. The Doctor wants people to think critically about the world around them. He’s frustrated when they don’t open their minds. “And no one’s going to stop you because you’ve bred a human race that doesn’t bother to ask questions. Stupid little slaves, believing every lie. They’ll just trot right into the slaughter house if they’re told it’s made of gold.” The Doctor always approaches things reasonably. When Rose wonders if he’s going to scan for alien tech after a crash, he simply responds by saying, “Rose, it hit the middle of London with a very loud bang. I’m going to ask.” The Doctor needs to know how a phone that wasn’t actually a phone was able to ring, and becomes obsessed with getting answers about it from Nancy. It’s not enough for him to know that human DNA is being converted to create these “things.” He also needs to know why and what the point of it is!

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Although the Doctor always has ideas, they’re typically pretty grounded and based on what he knows is possible. He doesn’t really get caught up in flights of fancy (like a couple of his later incarnations). The Ninth Doctor is also much more conscious of fitting in with the time period than some of his regenerations, and tells Rose that she must blend in with their surroundings. He tells Rose that he travels in order to see and experience. Not knowing what’s going to happen is fun and stimulating! He wants to watch events unfold and be part of them! It frustrates the Doctor when humanity proves incapable of believing in what’s right in front of them, especially when they seem to have no difficulty believing in things that can’t be seen or proven. “You’re happy to believe in something that’s invisible, but if it’s staring you in the face, nope, can’t see it. There’s a scientific explanation for that. You’re thick.” The Doctor tends to enjoy the moment without spending too much time brooding over the past or worrying about the future. He takes things as they come and enjoys adventure. He encourages others to just dive in and start doing. “The thing is, Adam, time travel’s like visiting Paris. You can’t just read the guide book, you’ve got to throw yourself in. Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing complete strangers. Or is that just me? Stop asking questions, go and do it.” The Doctor is so focused on the present that even the immediate past doesn’t have much impact on him. Somebody just died, but hey, they’re already gone. He can’t fix that, but he can prevent more people from dying now so that needs to be his primary objective.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: The Doctor has very good intuition. However, he tends to follow one of his instincts until it proves incorrect, rather than juggling a bunch of hunches at once. The Doctor is able to see how events will unfold and understands motivations. “That’s why the Slitheen went for spectacle. They want the whole world panicking, because you lot, you get scared, you lash out… You get the codes, release the missiles, but not into space because there’s nothing there. You attack every other country on Earth. They retaliate, fight back. World War Three. Whole planet gets nuked.” While he is usually able to understand how events will unfold and is able to arrive at correct conclusions, he sometimes fails to understand what’s really going on in a particular situation (such as trusting the Gelth and trying to help them, only to realize they were actually the enemy). With no prior knowledge whatsoever, the Doctor is able to guess that Nancy lost someone and wonders who it was. Then, he is able to intuit that her little brother was actually her child, but since she was an unwed teenager at the time, she was forced to pretend that she was his older sibling instead of his mother. However, he does sometimes fail to relate things to the big picture. When the Doctor realizes that the words “Bad Wolf” keep turning up everywhere he and Rose go, he mistakenly writes it off as a big coincidence and doesn’t think much of it.

Inferior Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: It’s very difficult for the Doctor to open up and talk about his feelings. He doesn’t like to talk about the Time War or his feelings about it. He has a habit of getting completely immersed in the mystery that he forgets about the people who are involved. When he first meets Rose, he forgets all about Mickey, and appears rather indifferent to her feelings about losing him. However, he claims that because he’s trying to saving the entire planet, it’s difficult for him to focus on just one individual. He fails to tell Rose that there is a possibility that Mickey is still alive, and when she admonishes him for this, he scolds her, telling her to “keep the domestics outside” (which he says on more than one occasion). The Doctor lacks tact and doesn’t really concern himself with protecting other people’s feelings. He tells it like it is, however unpleasant it might be for those around him. The Doctor’s sense of morality is more malleable than Rose’s. She is completely against allowing the Gelth to use the bodies of the deceased in order to save their species, but the Doctor is okay with it if that’s what it takes to keep them alive. The thought is appalling to Rose, but the morality of the situation doesn’t weigh heavily on the Doctor. “Not decent? Not polite? It could save their lives.” To him, it’s simply recycling. In order to get Rose to see things in a new light, he asks if she carries a donor card, and while she says she does, but that this is different, he reponds by saying “It is different, yeah. It’s a different morality. Get used to it or go home. You heard what they said, time’s short. I can’t worry about a few corpses when the last of the Gelth could be dying.” He often refuses to get involved with Rose’s personal life and is unwilling to spend time with her mother. He doesn’t care if Jackie wants him to come over. He has no interest in wasting time with her when there’s an entire universe to explore! The Doctor can be somewhat callous about other people’s losses, telling a man he can mourn his father later, because there’s nothing they can do to help him now. He’s gone, we’re here, we need to focus on saving our own hide. Although the Doctor isn’t great with relating to people in one-on-one situations, he does care about people and wants to help them. He’s overjoyed during the one occasion where he is able to successfully save everyone.

Enneagram: 5w6 8w7 2w1 Sx/So

Note: I considered 7 for the Doctor, but I think that’s because fives can sometimes take on characteristics of sevens. I might change my opinion on this, but for now, I’m sticking with 5.

Catelyn Stark (Game of Thrones): ISFJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: The past constantly influences Catelyn in the present. It’s difficult for her to let go, and she takes out her frustrations about Ned impregnating another woman while at war on Jon, who is clearly not to blame. However, he is a constant reminder of her husband’s infidelity, and she is unable to show him a shred of decency or kindness. Her ties to her past are so strong, that even after spending years in the North, she has a hard time truly feeling like a Northerner, because it isn’t where she was raised, though being a Stark instills her with a strong sense of pride and duty. Her roots and her background are very important to her and shape who she is. Catelyn is very good at noticing past behaviors and using them to come to conclusions. Bran always looks at his feet before he lies. Catelyn adheres to the values and traditions of her people, and she takes her role as a Lady and as a mother very seriously. Catelyn’s past experiences shape every decision she makes. She makes decisions about who to ask for help and who to trust based on her previous interactions with them. She’ll speak with Lord Walder alone. She’s known him since she was a child, he would never hurt her! Ned leaving with Robert in the present brings up her painful feelings from the past, because the last time he did that, he returned with a bastard. Catelyn is mindful of details and cautious. When in her right mind and not overcome with emotion, she is able to take the right precautions in order to do what is necessary in any given situation. When Catelyn believes that Tyrion is guilty of attempting to have Bran killed, she uses the past and a sense of house loyalty in order to convince the men around her to restrain him and bring him in to answer for his crimes when she happens upon him on the road. She fears that if Robb loses the war, her family will receive the same fate as the Targaryen children.
If Tywin had them all slaughtered once, he’d undoubtedly do so again!

Auxiliary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Catelyn is very open with her feelings and acts on them regularly, which often gets her into trouble. Her family is very important to her and there is nothing she won’t do to keep them safe. Catelyn is typically warm and friendly, and tries to make Cersei feel comfortable while visiting the Starks in the north. She attempts to relate to her by reminiscing about how scared she was when Ned brought her to the north for the first time, and imagines Cersei must find it rather grim compared to King’s Landing, in an effort to put her at ease and establish some common ground. However, when provoked, she can become vicious, protective, and fierce, which is evidenced after she comes to believe that the Lannisters were responsible for Bran’s fall from the window. She refuses to leave Bran’s bedside, even though there’s nothing she can do because he needs her and she has to be there for him! In addition to playing upon loyalty when she attempts to have the men around her capture Tyrion, she also flatters their houses in an effort to have the men seize him and bring him to justice.

Tertiary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Although she can’t help but treat him poorly due to the circumstances, Catelyn knows it’s irrational to hate Jon for something that wasn’t his fault. She shouldn’t blame him for being born. It was Ned’s indiscretion. Because Catelyn is ruled by her emotions and her love for her family, she can sometimes struggle to do what is logical or necessary in her moments of grief and despair. None of that matters while she’s got a child fighting for his life and a husband who’s leaving home! Catelyn sometimes doesn’t think things all the way through and she can become so consumed by her emotions that she doesn’t fully see reason. If Tyrion had sent the assassin, would he really be foolish enough to arm the man with his own personal dagger? She is able to think strategically, knowing that their best tactic is to win the war is by defeating the opposing army in the field.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Because of her attention to detail, Catelyn searches the room where Bran fell from, and comes upon a long, blonde hair, which leads her to the correct conclusion that people had been in there at the time of Bran’s accident, causing her to believe that he was pushed. She astutely assumes that Bran witnessed something he wasn’t meant to see. However, she understandably believes that Bran being pushed and the assassin sent to kill him were both staged by the Lannisters without considering that the incidents were separate. Before even reading Sansa’s letter, she is immediately able to deduce that the words in it were Cersei’s, not her daughter’s. Catelyn is able to figure out what’s really going on around her, though, her inferior function typically causes her distress, because she tends to imagine all of the ways something can go wrong. The last time Ned left Winterfell with Robert, he came back with another woman’s son!

Shawn Hunter (Boy Meets World): ISFP

Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Shawn’s feelings are intense and private. He doesn’t typically open up to other people, and instead acts on his emotions instead of talking them out with his friends. When he realizes that Cory has applied to Stanford, he “breaks up” with him as a defense mechanism. He leaves Cory before Cory can leave him. He feels that when high school is over, they’ll have no choice but to go their separate ways, and so he acts on these feelings by shutting Cory out and making new friends. While Shawn isn’t great at verbalizing his feelings, he is able to get them out by writing about them, and is proven to have a flair for poetry. Shawn usually does what he feels is right for himself, regardless of what others want from him or expect of him. Shawn is very good at interpreting situations and understanding people’s true intentions, but even though he’s able to accurately assess people’s motivations, he often impetuously goes along with them anyway, even when he knows better. He knows that the men from Cory’s job at the restaurant are in the mob and warns Cory, yet he takes Cory’s place when he quits because he’s desperate for money. He instantly realizes that the residents of The Center are members of a cult, but he joins them anyway because he wants to be part of something bigger than himself, where people don’t judge one another. He feels accepted for who he is there, which is very important to him. Shawn is willing to fight for what he believes in and doesn’t back down simply to keep the peace. He does whatever he feels is the right thing, though sometimes it takes him time to decide for certain what that is.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: One of Shawn’s trademark characteristics is his impulsiveness. He often acts without thinking things through and lands himself in trouble. He blows up a mailbox with a cherry bomb and decides to hide out at Cory’s because he’s afraid to go home to his parents. Although is obviously only a short-term solution that can’t work forever, Shawn has trouble seeing further than the present moment. He steals Jonathan’s motorcycle, even though he’s underage and doesn’t have a license in order to go looking for his father, and ends up getting caught by the police. Shawn is very fond of physical beauty. He enjoys meeting women and going on dates without actually making a commitment, and tends to get bored and move on quickly. He has a talent for photography, and nearly decides against going to college in order to pursue it. Shawn is typically more concerned with enjoying the moment than with being responsible and working hard. He doesn’t take the work study program seriously and goofs off, which irks Cory, who wants to excel. Shawn is good at seeing opportunities in his environment and using what is available to him to his advantage. When Mr. Feeny assigns them a project where they must invent a business and write a report, Shawn decides to turn Feeny’s house into a bed and breakfast while he’s away and has actual guests stay at his home. Shawn has a tendency to see things as they are and remains quite practical about life, whereas Cory tends to be more idealistic and hopeful. Shawn understands that there’s a good chance he won’t get into college and will have to find full-time employment, even though Cory refuses to accept that.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Although he doesn’t spend much time concerning himself with the future, there are moments where Shawn begins to panic about it and responds by acting rashly. When he realizes that Cory might end up at a college on the other side of the country, he cuts him out his life to spare himself the pain. On another occasion, Shawn tries to sever ties with Cory because they’re completely different people from polar opposite backgrounds. Shawn is from a family of criminals and degenerates and he’s sure that there’s no bright future in store for him. He becomes pessimistic about where he’ll end up, and decides he and Cory are not suited for one another. Shawn’s outlook on the long-term future is normally very negative, and he sometimes sabotages himself because he has difficulty believing in himself. Sometimes, Shawn can be extremely goal-oriented and can have tunnel vision. For instance, when Mr. Feeny assigns him to acquire tickets to the Superbowl or fail, Shawn doesn’t stop until he gets the tickets, telling Cory that doing so was the only thing that mattered and he was going to get there no matter what. He also becomes obsessed with helping Cory and Topanga get back together, because their love was symbolic of hope and without it, he had nothing to depend on, and he tried everything he could think of to help them reconnect. Shawn often displays a keen awareness when it comes to people and situations (Fi-Ni), and has the ability to accurately figure out what’s happening with little to no prior information. He often seems to immediately know what’s really going on with his friends or in a particular situation.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Shawn doesn’t really know what his place is in society or in the world. He doesn’t think that he’s cut out to be a successful, productive member of society. Shawn doesn’t like to be controlled and tends to get defensive and rebel when other people try to tell him what to do. He doesn’t want to follow the rules or go along with conventional norms. He wants to be his own person and resents being told what to do with his own life. Maybe college isn’t for him! It’s not for everyone, you know. When Shawn sets his mind to something, he often has a good head for business, as evidenced in his project for Feeny’s class. He was able to run a successful bed and breakfast. He advertised at the airport and was able to think of telling the cab driver to lie to potential customers about the hotels being booked. Shawn also did very well in his work study program. He rose quickly through the ranks and fit in well at the advertising company, where he was asked to pitch ideas which managed to impress one of the firm’s top executives.

Enneagram: 7w8 8w7 4w5 Sx/Sp

Robert Baratheon (Game of Thrones): ESTP

Dominant Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Robert is concerned with the pleasures of the moment. He doesn’t actually want to rule. He enjoys the fun parts of being king, but has little patience for the day to day responsibilities that go along with it. His main interests in life include drinking, hunting, and sex. “I’m trying to get you to run my kingdom while I eat, drink and whore my way to an early grave.” Robert’s lavish tastes and tendency to spare no expense during tournaments put the kingdom in a great deal of debt, which then fell into the hands of Ned Stark, who simply couldn’t believe how much money they owed out. Robert places a lot of value on physical strength and being able to defend oneself, and is openly disgraced to learn that Joffrey allowed himself to be disarmed by a little girl. He enjoys fighting and handling weapons, and when Ned tells him to leave the jousting for the younger men, Robert says “Why, because I’m king? Piss on that. I want to hit somebody!” He also tend to take rash physical action in the heat of the moment, and strikes his wife without thinking in a fit of rage after she insults him.

Auxiliary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Although he is ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, Robert doesn’t have much patience for running things. He doesn’t enjoy organizing things and people, and prefers to delegate those tasks to others while he goes out drinking or hunting. Robert’s sense of logic is internal and he has a very good sense of humor. He has a good grasp on irony and is able to make jokes even in the most dire of situations. Robert is blunt, sometimes brutally so, and he can be very harsh to those he deems incompetent (such as Lancel). Robert assesses situations and comes to his own rationales. He’s able to detach from his emotions in order to make decisions. There are no subjects that can’t be discussed. While Ned is horrified at the idea of killing Daenerys, Robert believes it’s the only thing to do. Yes, Daenerys is practically a child, but she has to die because she is a potential threat. Case closed. While Cersei is demanding that Arya’s wolf be killed for biting Joffrey, Robert has little interest in the conflict. They’re kids! Kids fight! Let’s just each discipline our own kids the way we each see fit and be done with it! He doesn’t actually want to sentence the wolf to death, but…

Tertiary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: … he also sometimes makes decisions based on what other people say. He doesn’t want to hear Cersei carrying on anymore, so, fine, the wolf dies. He doesn’t like settling conflicts and dislikes the tension that exists between his family and the Starks. He wants Daenerys dead because he spent his youth attempting to overthrow the Targaryens, and he’ll be damned if he allows Daenerys to return to Westeros to take back the kingdom. On his deathbed, he takes back his decision to have Daenerys killed after heeding Ned’s advice. When Cersei wants Ned punished for Catelyn taking Tyrion prisoner, Robert refuses to take action until he hears Ned’s side.

Inferior Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Because he is so preoccupied with enjoying his life, Robert gives little thought to the future. All he knows is that he wants to keep the Iron Throne, but he gives little thought to the steps he needs to take to ensure he remains on it. Instead, he tends to leave the grunt work to his small council instead. He doesn’t foresee Sometimes, Robert gets fixated on one idea. After learning of Daenerys’ pregnancy, he is able to (accurately) predict that someday she will cross the Narrow Sea in a bid to take back the Iron Throne, and Robert wants to make a preemptive strike by assassinating her before she ever gets the chance to try.

Enneagram: 8w7 7w8 3w2 Sx/So

Rapunzel (Tangled): ENFJ

Dominant Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Rapunzel wants to please Mother Gothel and refrains from leaving her tower for her entire life in order to keep her happy. She spends her entire life doing what is expected of her and trying to be a good daughter. She is kind, warm, and genuine, and inspires others to open up and be vulnerable around her. She wants to be validated and doesn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings or disappoint them (particularly Mother Gothel). Rapunzel is very good at tapping into other people’s feelings and empathizing with them. More than once, she gets out of a sticky situation by relating emotionally. She is able to get the men in the tavern to discuss their dreams, which keeps Flynn from being captured, and she is able to convince Maximus to wait before bringing Flynn in, which she does using flattery and by appealing to his softer side.

Auxiliary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: For her entire life, Rapunzel is fixated on the lights that appear on her birthday. They’re a sign and they were meant for her. She needs to go see them. This one goal drives her, and she singularly focused on turning the dream into a reality. This deep-seated drive is the only thing strong enough to make her defy Mother Gothel. Rapunzel doesn’t tend to take things as they are, instead preferring fantastical explanations. “Something brought you here, Flynn Ryder. Call it what you will, fate, destiny-“. Rapunzel has an “Aha!” moment after seeing the sun symbol, and realizes that she’s the lost princess. She doesn’t need to have it confirmed by anybody else, she knows it.

Tertiary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: When Rapunzel escapes her tower, she is enthralled by all of the sensory experiences the world has to offer. She is torn between her desire to run and play and do and her emotional meltdown over betraying Mother Gothel. To keep herself entertained throughout the day, Rapunzel paints, cooks, knits, cleans, plays guitar, dances, climbs, sketches, makes candles, and engages in other physical activities to occupy herself. Rapunzel is good at seeing potential in her environment, and often uses it to her advantage in her adventure with Flynn. Rapunzel gets a thrill out of experiencing the world outside of her tower. “Just smell the grass, the dirt. Just like I dreamed they’d be. Just feel that summer breeze. The way it’s calling me. For like the first time ever, I’m completely free. I could go running, and racing, and dancing… and chasing, and leaping and bounding. hair flying, heart pounding and splashing and reeling. And finally feeling, now’s when my life begins.”

Inferior Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Rapunzel is able to think creatively, which allows her to get herself out of trouble. She seeks to understand what the lanterns are. In addition to all of the sensory activities she enjoys, Rapunzel also likes solving puzzles and playing chess. She spends a lot of time analyzing her emotions, and has a difficult time detaching from them in her decisions.

Note: I completely get the ESFJ argument, and I actually struggled with this typing for quite some time. Many of the Si arguments I see have to do with Rapunzel repeating activities day in and day out and taking Mother Gothel’s word for what the outside world is like. However, I don’t think this is entirely fair, given her circumstances. Rapunzel is trapped, and Mother Gothel is the only other person she has contact with. If you were trapped in a room for your entire life, you’d probably keep yourself occupied with what was available to you, and trust the woman you thought was your mother. Rapunzel isn’t truly happy with her everyday routine, though. She does it to keep herself stimulated (Se), but the entire point of the song is in the title. She asks “When will my life begin?” because she’s dissatisfied with performing the same tasks day in and day out. I don’t think her obsession with the lanterns stems from Si, but from Ni. She feels a deep connection to them that she has no way of explaining. I don’t believe that her going back and forth about whether she’s doing the right thing once she leaves is indicative of low Ne. I think that’s just her Fe. Her only real qualm is how her actions will affect Mother Gothel. I totally understand the ESFJ argument, though, and regularly bounce back and forth between the two types, so if I change my mind in the future, I’ll re-type her. Also, I see her typed as an ENFP a lot but she’s so Fe.

Lauren Cooper (Faking It): ESTJ

Dominant Extroverted Thinking [Te]: It’s essential for Lauren to be in control of her external environment. She effortlessly organizes events and the people around her and is gifted at implementing her various plans. Lauren is comfortable stepping into positions of leadership. She runs for sophomore class president and wins the election in an effort to change Hester by dismantling it’s progressive, liberal approach to education (Te-Si). She isn’t great at relating to people, and tends to have minions rather than friends. Lauren is bossy, domineering, and focused on the task at hand. She is blunt, direct, and speaks her mind, regardless of whose feelings she may hurt in the process. Lauren accepts structure and enjoys working within it, and if something isn’t functioning the way it’s supposed to, she intends to do something about it. “You see, there is a natural order to high school, and all of this is against nature. But I’m here now, and I’m gonna set things straight. Pun intended.” Lauren doesn’t have the time or the patience for people who beat around the bush and she typically prefers to get straight to the point. She cares about facts and even interrogates Theo about his family’s medical history during their first date. Lauren cares very much about measures of performance. It’s important for her to win trophies in pageants, and she even continuously grades Theo during their first date.

Auxiliary Introverted Sensing [Si]: Lauren is extremely traditional and believes in doing things the way they’ve always been done; the “right” way. “Old people love me. I share their values.” She typically resists that which is new or unfamiliar to her, and initially rejects Hester’s social hierarchy, vowing to fix it. In any other school, Lauren would be running the show, but at Hester, freaks reign supreme. “”Fucking Austin. Any place else in Texas and I would own you bitches.” It’s all wrong. Lauren is extremely detail-oriented, which makes her quite skilled at organizing parties, events, and other functions. She creates an entire Pinterest board for potential poses for her prom photos, and forces Tommy to review them with her. Lauren is extremely practical. She doesn’t want to revolutionize the system or create change – she prefers to preserve things as they are and retain the preexisting social structure. “Kids, I’ll be honest with you. I am not an inspirational leader. I’m not here to tell you to dream big or reach for the stars or any of that bullcrap. The recent drug bust exposed a school with dangerously loose academic standards and a complete disregard for how things are done in the real world. I am here to fix that.” Lauren makes a big deal about social events, viewing them as important, defining memories she will value for the rest of her life. “Theo, prom is a rite of passage forged through decades of tradition. It’s a night that every student here will remember for the rest of their lives, including me.”

Tertiary Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Reading between the lines comes pretty easily to Lauren. She’s good at paying attention to details and drawing conclusions about situations and the people around her, which often allows her to use her insights as leverage, or manipulate events in her favor. Lauren is good at brainstorming and plotting in order to achieve a desired outcome. When she’s scheming, she’s able to come up with creative solutions to her problems that are usually also grounded and realistic. Though, under stress, she sometimes gets carried away and executes plans that are a bit over the top. When Tommy learns that she’s intersex, she decides to kidnap him in order to take embarrassing photos of him, intending to use them as blackmail to keep him from telling people her secret.

Inferior Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Empathy doesn’t come easily for Lauren. It’s something she has to actively work at, and though she seems devoid of compassion when she’s first introduced, she gradually gains the ability to relate to the people around her. Lauren tends to see most issues as black and white. She dislikes discussing her feelings and hates to appear vulnerable. Lauren wants to be strong, self-reliant, and above giving into her emotions. While the people around her get caught up with moral issues and seeking justice, Lauren tends to only get involved when something threatens her own, personal value system.

Hercules (Hercules): ESFP

Dominant Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Hercules always wants to leap right into things and engage. However, he doesn’t have control over his strength, and typically ends up causing damage to his environment as a result of this desire. Hercules doesn’t hesitate to leap into new situations without taking the time to properly assess what he’s up against. He tends to act before thinking things through and doesn’t usually take the time to think about how the situations he gets himself into will unfold. He just wants to dive in and take action! “I am ready. I want to get off this island. I want to see battles and monsters. Rescue some damsels. You know, heroic stuff.” Hercules enjoys his status and the attention he receives once he begins to gain fame for his heroism.

Auxiliary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Figuring out where he belongs is very important to Hercules. He is very aware of his inability to “fit in” on Earth and wants to understand who he is and where he comes from in the hope that it might help him to discover where he’s meant to be in the world. While Hercules does care very deeply for others, he initially begins his heroics as a way to prove himself in order to become a God. He doesn’t do it to defend mortals. He just wants to earn his place on Mount Olympus to get to where he’s supposed to be. When he hears about the kids who were trapped, he’s excited about it, not concerned, because he sees his shot and he intends to take it. Hercules is often caught up in his own feelings and can fail to sense the emotions and true motives of those around him. He’s willing to make a deal with Hades that will keep Meg safe, but will result in many innocent people being hurt because he loves Meg.

Tertiary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: When Phil tells Hercules to “use his head,” Hercules takes this literally, and headbutts Nessus to deal with the problem. Hercules isn’t exactly a creative thinker, and tends to approach problems in the most direct and simple way possible. When he makes the decision to do whatever it takes to get back to Mount Olympus to be with his parents and all the other gods, Hercules is very pragmatic in his approach. He needs to do something heroic, and he does, on very large scales. He defends humanity and protects it, because that is the logical way to become a hero and earn his status as a god, but no matter how much good he does, he still isn’t granted permission to return to Mount Olympus. It isn’t until he is willing to sacrifice his own life in order to save Meg that he gets the hero’s welcome he had been dreaming of. It’s easier for Hercules to discuss his thoughts and plans aloud than it is for him to verbalize his feelings.

Inferior Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Hercules knows that he’s meant to be somewhere else… he just doesn’t know where or why he feels that way so strongly. He has a very specific vision (“Go the Distance” is an explosion of Fi and Ni)”. He can see the welcome he will receive and how the crowd will cheer, and is certain that if he can go the distance, he will have everything he’s ever hoped for. He doesn’t care how long it takes and is determined to see his quest through. While Hercules is able to picture a future where he is happy and content and believes he will get there, he has a hard time figuring out how and makes several mistakes along the way, often as a result of failing to envision how events might play out before jumping in.

Note: It was a very tough call between 3w2 and 2w3, but I think he leans slightly more 2 than 3.

Kat Edison (The Bold Type): ENFP

Dominant Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Kat is always looking to the future and brainstorming ideas to keep Scarlet seen and heard. She has excellent intuition and is very good at reading between the lines. When Sutton tries to dissuade her from going after Adena’s story, Kat refuses to back down because she believes that Jacqueline “was basically telling her to go after that story.” She is a skilled communicator and knows how to persuade people to get what she wants from them. Because Kat is so focused on constantly generating ideas, she can sometimes fail to live in the moment and just be. Kat likes to keep her options open, which can make it difficult for her to make commitments. She doesn’t express her feelings to Adena right away because she doesn’t know what she wants. When Kat tells her friends that she can do a better job of satisfying herself sexually than a man could, Sutton responds by saying, “That’s because you never stick around long enough. Takes time to train them.” Kat always has very fresh, innovative ideas to present, which is what makes her so good at her job. Kat has an eye for possible future trends and is very conscious of the “next big thing” (such as when she comes up with the plan to launch a virtual reality app for Scarlet). “Right now, everyone is front row at a fashion show. But, I mean, the possibilities are… endless. We could take our readers through a private workout with one of our trainers or even to the U.N. See Emma Watson give her speech on women. While we’re launching, we would let people try them out at events, give a certain number away as freebies. More and more people are owning VR goggles in their homes. This is definitely the next big thing, so I want Scarlet to be the first magazine with their own VR app.”

Auxiliary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: As Adena points out very shortly after meeting her, Kat has a tendency to mask her emotions with humor. It’s hard for her to open up about how she feels. When Kat is feeling emotional, she needs to do something about it, and often tries to take action to fix the problem (Fi-Te). It’s important for Kat to be true to herself, live authentically, and be independent. Kat is extremely upfront and doesn’t hold back. When she realizes that she might be beginning to have feelings for another woman, she doesn’t hesitate to discuss it with her friends, even though it’s completely new, unchartered territory. She doesn’t care that the person she’s falling for happens to be a woman. She just wants to figure out what it is she’s feeling so she can do something about it. With Kat, what you see is very much what you get, and she makes no apologies for who she is. Kat fights for what she believes in and doesn’t hesitate to stand up for what she thinks is right. She attempts to rally her Scarlet colleagues to begin tweeting in order to get Adena out of trouble with the law after she’s caught smuggling vibrators into her home country, where such acts are strictly forbidden. Kat also gets gets arrested while defending Adena from a prejudiced man on the street, and is appalled at how somebody could hate a perfect stranger that much.

Tertiary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: While Kat enjoys tossing out all kinds of ideas, she’s also quite skilled at executing those ideas. She is blunt, direct, and has no problem speaking her mind. Kat is good at thinking aloud and allowing those around her to understand her thought process. While she is motivated to tackle stories and innovate in ways that help Scarlet’s readers, she is also keenly aware that the magazine must also benefit from whatever plans she puts into motion. She is able to lay out her arguments about why something is not only positive for their audience, but for the magazine as well. “Okay, I just – I think this story is worth fighting for. It’s click gold for us, it hits all of our boxes, no pun intended. It’s feel-good, it’s sexy…” External indicators of success are important to Kat. She obsesses over how many followers the magazine has on social media, and becomes preoccupied with making sure they reach a certain number. Kat is good at getting straight down to business and goes after what she’s passionate about with a can-do, take no prisoners spirit. Kat is relentless and doesn’t give up when she sets her mind to something. She is good at getting her way without violating any rules, such as when the magazine forbid her from posting images of women’s nipples for breast cancer awareness, so she began sharing images of men’s nipples instead, which didn’t violate any rules. Kat has no trouble taking command of a room and barking out orders, but often does so with a light, friendly touch (unless she’s angry or upset). Sometimes, Kat can fail to think things all the way through before charging in and typically deals with her emotions by quickly springing into action, which sometimes lands her in hot water. She helps Jane deal with her orgasm problem by being proactive and bringing her to a sex therapist to address the issue head-on.

Inferior Introverted Sensing [Si]: Kat tends to resist the normal and the conventional. She’s a free spirit and doesn’t rely on what’s safe or familiar. Kat enjoys throwing herself into new situations, but sometimes, she can find herself in the grip of her inferior function. While she accepts that she has romantic feelings for Adena, she has trouble beginning a relationship with her. She makes the decision to fly out of the country to be with Adena, leaving her friends, her job, and her life, but as they’re about to board the plane, Kat is unable to go through with it (though she eventually decides to take the risk and go for it). She is constantly encouraging the people around her to take chances and repeatedly admonishes Jane, who prefers to play it safe and do things the way they’ve always been done. You just need to do something crazy!

Molly Weasley (Harry Potter): ESFJ

Dominant Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Molly is warm, empathetic, and loving. She is extremely nurturing, maternal, and constantly focused on the needs of those around her. Molly is very protective of the people in her life and cares very much about their best interests. Molly prefers to omit important information if divulging it will upset the people she cares about, which is why she didn’t want Arthur to tell Harry about Sirius Black’s escape from Azkaban. She opens her home and her heart to Harry, who she views Harry as a surrogate son and becomes concerned about the influence Sirius has over him. She always includes him and makes him feel like part of the family, always tending to him, feeding him, and making sure he has presents to open each Christmas. Molly has no qualms about expressing her emotions and discusses her feelings with ease. Whether those feelings kind and loving, anger, rage, worry, disgust, or fear, Molly doesn’t hesitate to let them out. Molly is always worried that the people she loves are in danger. When faced with a boggart, it is revealed that her biggest fear is losing her loved ones, and she is driven to make sure they are safe. When Bellatrix Lestrange makes a move toward Ginny, Molly fiercely defends her daughter, killing Bellatrix. Molly always believes she knows what’s best for everybody and can be a bit controlling and strict at times, but when she is, it comes from a place of love and concern.

Auxiliary Introverted Sensing [Si]: Doing things the “right” way is important to Molly. She discourages Fred and George after they leave Hogwarts and fail to complete their education because she wants her children to have normal jobs at the Ministry of Magic. Molly is incredibly grounded and practical. She doesn’t have patience for flights of fancy, which often causes her to clash with the twins. Rules are important to Molly and she gets extremely agitated when her children break them, often administering harsh punishments, or going on long, angry tirades after they’ve been disobedient. Molly wants her children to be safe, so she gets highly upset when they put themselves in danger or engage in reckless behavior. Molly’s experiences (and other people’s) are very important to her and inform her decisions regarding others. Harry is perfectly safe at Hogwarts because Dumbledore is there and nothing bad will happen to him while Dumbledore’s around. Molly prefers to do things in ways that have been proven to be successful, and often consults books to deal with problems. She hangs onto Gilderoy Lockhart’s every word and trusts his advice on de-gnoming because of all of his experience (not to mention, her crush on him). She also refers to a book to deal with the black eye Hermione received as a result of Fred and George’s punching telescope. Molly tends to clash with Sirius a lot because she’s a mother and she knows what’s best for Harry. Sirius has no parenting experience whatsoever! Molly is very loyal to Dumbledore and her faith in him never wavers because he has earned her trust and her respect. It takes time for her to warm up to Fleur, who she initially writes off as being shallow and an unfit match for her son, but when Fleur proves herself, Molly comes around and accepts her as part of the family. Tradition is important to Molly – she likes that everyone in her family was a member of Gryffindor, and she is thrilled when Ron becomes a prefect because everyone in the family had been one (except, as she seems to forget, Fred and George).

Tertiary Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Molly often imagines worst-case scenarios When Fred, George, and Ron take the car, she is sick with worry that they had crashed somewhere. Molly gets a lot of ideas from things in her external world. Rita Skeeter is a reporter, so Molly takes her word for it when she writes about Hermione toying with the affections of both Viktor Krum and Harry, causing Molly to begin behaving quite coldly towards Hermione. Molly seems to be uncomfortable with doing things in ways that are unfamiliar to her and seems to be averse to trying new things, such as when Arthur had tried to use Muggle stitches on his wounds and she admonished him for it.

Inferior Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Thinking critically and make objective, rational decisions doesn’t come easily for Molly. While it might be best if Harry knows what he’s up against, Molly argues that he’s just a boy! We shouldn’t be scaring him! He’s a child. It’s difficult for Molly to keep her emotions out of her decisions. Although the more rational members of the Order believed that Harry should be armed with the knowledge of what they were truly up against so that he could prepare himself for what was ahead, Molly cared more about shielding Harry from it in order to protect his innocence and keep him out of harm’s way.
