Say, is anyone else interested in Meyers-Briggs Temperament Indicator?  What are your type readings for the characters?  Here's a first pass:

Lorelai - ENFP
Rory - INTP?
Christopher - ESFP
Richard - ESTJ
Emily - ISTJ
Paris - ENTJ
Logan - ESFP
Jess - INFJ
Dean - ISTJ
Sookie - ESFP
Taylor - ESTJ
Luke - perhaps the only adult male INFJ on network TV until season 6, now ISTJ

Interested in other opinions.

If you don't know what it is, it's a theory for personality typing.

You can find out your own type and learn more about it at

Heh, I've never heard of this before.† It's very interesting though.

I entered the link you posted and had a quick read.† I took the test for myself and ended up with the ENFJ type personality.† After clicking on the links to read the experts summaries of my personality I was quite surprised at how true a lot of it is.† As a side note it then goes on to list famous ENFJ personality type one of which was none other than our very own Lauren Graham!!† I knew we were connected Cheesy Wink

I will have to get back to you on the types of all the cast/characters though - I've gotta fly.

Could you possibly include the descriptions for each of those? I'm assuming you took the test 12 times, according to the answers you thought matched best with the characters. I would do so myself, but I don't have the time. And I'm curious what each entails.

I scored ENFP.

Smiley  No, not at all; rather I have been studying the theory for many years, read a great deal about it and have been practicing reading others types with the people I know.

Here are web pages discussing the various types:

Christopher:  http://www.personalitypage.com/ESFP.html

I love personality tests.† I usually get INFP (Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving) although I sometimes fluctuated to the ISFJ (Introverted Sensory Feeling Judging).† But I always land on the introverted side.  †


I'm looking at the shorthand descriptions of the personalities, and I think tyger's assessment of Lorelai and Rory fit pretty well

Lorelai (ENFP): Enthusiastic, idealistic, and creative. Able to do almost anything that interests them. Great people skills. Need to live life in accordance with their inner values. Excited by new ideas, but bored with details. Open-minded and flexible, with a broad range of interests and abilities.

Rory: (INTP): Logical, original, creative thinkers. Can become very excited about theories and ideas. Exceptionally capable and driven to turn theories into clear understandings. Highly value knowledge, competence and logic. Quiet and reserved, hard to get to know well. Individualistic, having no interest in leading or following others.

Still going through the descriptors, although I think Richard is pretty accurate, in regard to the negative aspects as well.

I know INFJ's are characterized as good writers, which brings Jess to mind, but I think I'd put him in the ISFP mode.  Although I think people often fit more than one type, so he has some INFJ characteristics.  But, here's something on the ISFP: (quotes in quotes, my comments afterwards)

Quote
ISFPs may be quite charming and ingratiating on first acquaintance, flowing with compliments which may (or may not) be deserved. On other occasions, the same individual may be aloof and detached. Some ISFP males are fiercely competitive, especially in sport or table games, and may have great difficulty losing. This competitive nature, also seen in other SP types, sometimes fosters 'lucky,' 'gut' feelings and a willingness to take risks.


Okay, the first sentence isn't Jess.  But, aloof and detached, I think he definitely was when he first came to Stars Hollow.  And, although I think he's grown out of that some, I don't think he'll ever want to be the center of attention in a crowd.  Fiercely competitive?  Well, I think Jess got as much pleasure out of beating Dean as he did of winning Rory's affections. Don't know about the gut feeling, though.

Quote
Organized education is difficult for the majority of ISFPs, and many drop out before finishing secondary education. Their interest can be held better through experiential learning, at which many excel. ISFPs will practice playing an instrument or honing a favored skill for hours on end, not so much as practice as for the joy of the experience.


Jess didn't finish high school.  I don't know his learning style, since that wasn't a factor in his storyline.  He doesn't play an instrument, but I could see him honing his reading and writing skills just because he liked to do it.

But, then, you come up to the brick wall that ISFP (Introverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving) aren't thought to be good writers.  On the other hand, the writing thing sort of got tacked on to him in season 6, instead of building up naturally.  I mean, it makes sense, I buy it, but I don't recall any sign that it's where the character was going back when he was a regular.  Readers don't all end or want to end up as writers.

Here's a snippet of INFJ that fits Jess, and doesn't fit:

Quote
INFJs have a knack for fluency in language and facility in communication. In addition, nonverbal sensitivity enables the INFJ to know and be known by others intimately.

Fluency in language, check.  Know others intimately?  Maybe.  Be known?  I don't know about that.  I

Thanks Dani, your words on Jess tend to convince. 

He is a hard one to pin down though.  At times we have seen him have an uncompromising attitude toward principle which seemed more INFJ.  Perhaps he could be an INFJ under extreme stress?

He seems to have started out as bad boy/rebel without a cause and later changed to a highly principled writer and man of integrity.  So possibly this character has not been treated consistently enough to have a real type.

Thanks for the previous post too.
