Imaginative, energetic, and friendly, ENFPs are often the most endearing of fictional characters. These types see life as full of possibilities and adventures that they can’t wait to explore. They make connections between events and data very quickly, seeing random links where others do not. Their focus on the big picture can make them forward-thinking and creative, but it can also mean they trip up over details in the real world. Spontaneous and flexible, ENFPs prefer being innovative rather than relying on a pre-ordained plan.  Freedom is crucial to these types, and they will fight being tied down by anyone. When it comes to decisions, they rely on their individual values to guide them.

List of Characters & People

Jump to:  Film — TV — Literature — People

While it’s not my main focus to type characters/celebrities, I don’t mind offering an opinion if I’m able to. Submit a request through the contact box, but I won’t reply directly because these questions tend to clog up the blog’s feed.

  • If I know enough about the person to speculate for you, my opinion will show up on this page. But if not, nothing happens.
  • If I watched something a long time ago or if I don’t know much about the person, I may only be able to offer a gut feeling. My memory is horrible, so I often can’t remember secondary or tertiary characters at all.
  • If I plan on watching the show/film eventually, I’ll hold off on answering until then. Keep in mind that I don’t like to type TV characters until the series ends because I prefer to see the complete character arc. My opinion may change several times as more details are revealed.
  • If you want me to explain my conclusion, offer me your ideas of what types you might consider and why. Writing out a detailed type profile is somewhat tedious for me, so contribute something to the discussion first and I’ll respond to your reasoning process.

Will I be able to help you? Facts about me: I don’t automatically pay attention to personality type. I watch many movies, mostly dramas with complex characters or complicated plots, but I enjoy all genres. (I’ve been asked for random movie suggestions before.) Nowadays I’m selective about TV shows because of time constraints. I don’t watch anime. I don’t frequent youtube or social media. I don’t read much fiction. I don’t follow sports or celebrity gossip. I don’t play video games. I study history and philosophy for ideas rather than famous figures. 

My type assessment method is explained in the Type Spotting Guide. Unless you present compelling evidence/reasoning that people don’t usually bring up, don’t ask whether I’ve considered this or that type, because I always begin by examining all 16 types. I try to make an educated guess based on limited knowledge and, in the case of famous people, reading a selection of materials about them. While I’m sometimes confident, I don’t believe that it’s possible to be % certain about someone’s type without their verification.

Below are the characters/people I’ve already been asked about. A few were elaborated upon in old posts, browse #fictional depictions or #famous people.

ESTJ – The Supervisor

For those of you who are not familiar with Myers-Briggs, it’s a personality profiling system based on Jung’s typological theory that was developed by Katherine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. In the Myers-Briggs typeology system, there are sixteen personality types consisting of four letters: E for extrovert or I for introvert, S for sensor or N for intuitive, T for thinker or F for feeler, and P for perceiver or J for judger. You can read more about Myers-Briggs here and find books about it here. Just for fun, here are the Myers-Briggs characters: types for a whole lot of fictional characters. (For more MBTI fun, check out my post “The Myers-Briggs Types of Famous Authors.”)

An Overview of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Have you ever heard someone describe themselves as an INTJ or an ESTP and wondered what those cryptic-sounding letters could mean? What these people are referring to is their personality type based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

The Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is a self-report inventory designed to identify a person's personality type, strengths, and preferences. The questionnaire was developed by Isabel Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs based on their work with Carl Jung's theory of personality types. Today, the MBTI inventory is one of the most widely used psychological instruments in the world.

The Development of the Myers-Briggs Test

Both Myers and Briggs were fascinated by Jung's theory of psychological types and recognized that the theory could have real-world applications. During World War II, they began researching and developing an indicator that could be utilized to help understand individual differences.

By helping people understand themselves, Myers and Briggs believed that they could help people select occupations that were best suited to their personality types and lead healthier, happier lives.

Myers created the first pen-and-pencil version of the inventory during the s, and the two women began testing the assessment on friends and family. They continued to fully develop the instrument over the next two decades.

An Overview of the Test

Based on the answers to the questions on the inventory, people are identified as having one of 16 personality types. The goal of the MBTI is to allow respondents to further explore and understand their own personalities including their likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, possible career preferences, and compatibility with other people.

No one personality type is "best" or "better" than another. It isn't a tool designed to look for dysfunction or abnormality. Instead, its goal is simply to help you learn more about yourself. The questionnaire itself is made up of four different scales.

Extraversion (E) – Introversion (I)

The extraversion-introversion dichotomy was first explored by Jung in his theory of personality types as a way to describe how people respond and interact with the world around them. While these terms are familiar to most people, the way in which they are used in the MBTI differs somewhat from their popular usage.

Extraverts (also often spelled extroverts) are "outward-turning" and tend to be action-oriented, enjoy more frequent social interaction, and feel energized after spending time with other people. Introverts are "inward-turning" and tend to be thought-oriented, enjoy deep and meaningful social interactions, and feel recharged after spending time alone.

We all exhibit extraversion and introversion to some degree, but most of us tend to have an overall preference for one or the other.

Sensing (S) – Intuition (N)

This scale involves looking at how people gather information from the world around them. Just like with extraversion and introversion, all people spend some time sensing and intuiting depending on the situation. According to the MBTI, people tend to be dominant in one area or the other.

People who prefer sensing tend to pay a great deal of attention to reality, particularly to what they can learn from their own senses. They tend to focus on facts and details and enjoy getting hands-on experience. Those who prefer intuition pay more attention to things like patterns and impressions. They enjoy thinking about possibilities, imagining the future, and abstract theories.

Thinking (T) – Feeling (F)

This scale focuses on how people make decisions based on the information that they gathered from their sensing or intuition functions. People who prefer thinking place a greater emphasis on facts and objective data.

They tend to be consistent, logical, and impersonal when weighing a decision. Those who prefer feeling are more likely to consider people and emotions when arriving at a conclusion.

Judging (J) – Perceiving (P)

The final scale involves how people tend to deal with the outside world. Those who lean toward judging prefer structure and firm decisions. People who lean toward perceiving are more open, flexible, and adaptable. These two tendencies interact with the other scales.

Remember, all people at least spend some time engaged in extraverted activities. The judging-perceiving scale helps describe whether you behave like an extravert when you are taking in new information (sensing and intuiting) or when you are making decisions (thinking and feeling).

The MBTI Types

Each type is then listed by its four-letter code:

Taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator can provide a lot of insight into your personality, which is probably why the instrument has become so enormously popular. Even without taking the formal questionnaire, you can probably immediately recognize some of these tendencies in yourself.

According to the Myers & Briggs Foundation, it is important to remember that all types are equal and that every type has value.

When working in group situations in school or at work, for example, recognizing your own strengths and understanding the strengths of others can be very helpful. When you are working toward completing a project with other members of a group, you might realize that certain members of the group are skilled and talented at performing particular actions. By recognizing these differences, the group can better assign tasks and work together on achieving their goals.

How MBTI Differs From Other Instruments

First, the MBTI is not really a "test." There are no right or wrong answers and one type is not better than any other type. The purpose of the indicator is not to evaluate mental health or offer any type of diagnosis.

Also, unlike many other types of psychological evaluations, your results are not compared against any norms. Instead of looking at your score in comparison to the results of other people, the goal of the instrument is to simply offer further information about your own unique personality.

Reliability and Validity

According to the Myers & Briggs Foundation, the MBTI meets accepted standards of reliability and validity. However, other studies have found that the reliability and validity of the instrument have not been adequately demonstrated.

Studies have found between 40% and 75% of respondents receive a different result after completing the inventory a second time.

A book by The Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance and the National Research Council suggests that "there is not sufficient, well-designed research to justify the use of MBTI in career counseling programs. Much of the current evidence is based on inadequate methodologies."

The MBTI Today

Because the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is relatively easy to use, it has become one of the most popular psychological instruments currently in use today. Approximately two million U.S. adults complete the inventory each year.

While there are many versions of the MBTI available online, it should be noted that any of the informal questionnaires that you may find on the Internet are only approximations of the real thing.

The real MBTI must be administered by a trained and qualified practitioner that includes a follow-up of the results. Today, the questionnaire can be administered online via the instrument publisher, CPP, Inc., and includes receiving a professional interpretation of your results.

The current version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator includes 93 forced-choice questions in the North American version and 88 forced-choice questions in the European version. For each question, there are two different options from which the respondent must choose.

Let&#;s face it &#; learning about our Myers Briggs® type can be pretty darn fun. Reading through the lists of traits and saying, &#;Man, that&#;s so me!&#;

Comparing your traits with those of friends and family is especially entertaining. We think to ourselves, hmm, that&#;s why my co-worker Jackie and I get along so well, or that&#;s why my Uncle Bob drives me nuts. It provides a little framework and puts words to things we knew somewhat intuitively, but never quite put our finger on.

With the amount of time we spend streaming video and with our noses in pop-fiction books, it&#;s natural for us to also wonder how our types compare with those of fictional characters. Whether you&#;re a Harry Potter fan-girl or guy, or a die-hard Star Wars nerd, you probably have identified more with certain characters.

Well, we&#;ve scoured the web to bring you a giant list of fictional character MBTI® charts for your amusement. And of course, if you&#;re looking to do a Myers-Briggs Workshop for your corporate group, or arrange an Interactive MBTI Presentation, please get in touch!
