No doubt.

This incomplete list is a work-in-progress; I look forward to any additions by other fans.

I've stalled part way through this series. I got to Feast for Crows and was a bit confused about where everyone I know went. :cry: Is it worth continuing to read? Is the series complete? I don't even know what is after Feast for Crows... :huh:

That's the last one that's been released - GRRM is currently working on the next one, A Dance with Dragons. It's sort of weird how Feast for Crows/Dance with Dragons are going... it started out as one gargantuan book, but in the midst of writing it, GRRM decided that he couldn't finish it in time for FoC's hoped release, and it was simply too big to be one book. But instead of splitting it in two chronologically, he split it in two by characters... which is why major characters like Tyrion, Daenerys, and Jon Snow have pretty small parts in FoC. The parts of the story that focus on them, that take place at the same general time as the events of FoC, will be in Dance with Dragons.

I think I've been waiting for this book for too long :D.

Tried reading it. Got bored after Game of Thrones page 269.

SHUT UP AND SHOOT A FIREBALL ALREADY. THIS IS FANTASY, NOT POLITICAL HISTORICAL FICTION IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE.

My god...too much yakking for characters made of glass. Where are our spiky-haired heroes with the BFS and the platinum haired villains and the girls that look like centerfolds who can magically kick the crap out of anyone in the meantime?

Pretty good type descriptions!


Is the series complete?

No. Actually, even though I love the series, I haven't read Feast for Crows. I just can't bring myself to read any more of this until I know whether or not it gets finished. Considering how long Martin has been working on the last two books, I have my doubts.

I've only read the first 3 books so far, so perhaps there's further character development down the line.

I agree with most of the above, but I have highlighted the ones I either really disagree with, or just think there's not much evidence to go one way or another.

Samwell Tarly -- far cry from INFJ in my opinion. Maybe ISFJ or ISFP.

The Red Priestess - INFJ is possible, but I guess I take issue to priestesses/sorceresses automatically being pinned down as INFJ. To me she could be any NF type (although agree 'J' is most likely - so ENFJ is a likely possibility too), and I don't think INTJ is out of the question either.

Sansa Stark -- seems much more ESFJ to me. I see little evidence of Ni, or any sort of non-SJ temperament, but again, since I've only gotten through book 3, perhaps she matures and develops in later books.

Joffrey Baratheon -- not seeing evidence of Ni, so have a hard time seeing ENTJ (compare him to his mother or to Jon Snow). Actually doesn't seem very NT to me. Seems more SP. Or maybe ESTJ.

The Hound - ISTJ is probable. I'm just not sold on it.

Theon Greyjoy -- I would have guessed ENTJ before ESTP. Seems more NT in temperament to me than SP. More of a long-range schemer.

Hard to tell with some of them. Cersei seems to identify herself as being somehow masculine ("I should have been born the son!") which suggests T, but otherwise seems to fit the profile of an unhealthy ESFJ better than that of an unhealthy ESTJ. She's a bit of a nutter which confuses things.

I was just reading Storm of Swords earlier and thinking "Geez, Stannis, you are the biggest ISTJ ever" and decided maybe I'd look up what people think of characters as diverse as Bran Stark and Vargo Hoat, only to find no such thread exists.

Surely, whether you watch the series or read the books, it is worth a go talking over all the character types?

I agree with your alterations. Also, I'm thinking Varys for INFJ... no one knows who he "really" is, or a clear idea of his long-range goals and motivations. Many in book characters don't even realize he has them, but it's definitely implied to the reader that there's some goal he's working toward and cares about very much - whether or not it's for "the realm" as he has claimed to some is to be seen.

Not totally sure about his type, but I'm at the end of Storm of Swords and I agree. You'd think you'd find at least one important INTP in this maze of characters.

I'd put Qyburn, Doran Martell, and Maester Luwin as INTPs. 5w4 for the first and 5w6 for the latter two. Though they are also minor characters. Jaqen definitely seems xNTP, and I would lean toward INTP, but ENTP is also plausible. One of the coolest characters too, in a series loaded with them.

I'm still reading through ADWD atm, but I have a massive and growing list of character types for the series which I'll post once I'm finished.

For now, my estimates of the major viewpoint characters:

Eddard Stark: ISTJ 1w9-6w5-3w2 sx/sp? RCOan
Catelyn Stark: ISfJ 6w7-1w2-2w1 sx/sp rCOaN
Sansa Stark: EsFJ 2w3-9w1-6w7 so/sx slOAN
Arya Stark: iSTP 8w7-7w8-4w3 sp/sx rcUEI
Bran Stark: INFP 9w1 or 6w5-4w5 sx/so rCUAI
Jon Snow: INFJ 6w5-1w9-4w5 sx/so rCuAI
Samwell Tarly: InFp? 9w1-7w6-2w3 so/sp? sluAI
Tyrion Lannister: ENTP 7w6-3w4-1w9 sx/sp SCoxI
Jaime Lannister: ESTP 7w8-3w4 sx/so SCuEn
Cersei Lannister: ENfJ 3w4 or 8w7 sx/sp? rcoEx
Daenerys Targaryen: INFJ 1w9-4w5 sx/so? rCoeI
Davos Seaworth: IStJ 6w5-1w9 so/sp? RCOAN
Theon Greyjoy: ESTP 7w8-3w4-8w7 so/sx SLUEn
Brienne of Tarth: ISTJ or ISFP 1w9-6w5 so/sx RCoAN

Catelyn: xSFJ
I don't think so, I'd say ISTJ 1w2 So/Sx

nooo, he's definitely a Feeler of some kind, maybe ENFJ?


Sansa: ENFJ
I could see that.


Arya: ISTP
ISFP (she has Fi) 7w8 Sx/Sp


Bran: INFP
seems xSFP to me. 7w6 Sx/Sp


Jon: INFJ
yes (either a 9, a 1 or a 2 So/Sx)


Sam: ISFP (?)
your guess is as good as mine


Theon: ESTP (?)
kinda seemed like an ESFJ to me 6w7 So/Sx


Robert: ESFP
definitely Se dom, but I think ESTP (definitely an 8w7 Sx/So)


Cersei: ESFJ
not feelin this typing. she's far too cold and calculating, I'd say some sort of TJ


Joffrey: ESTx
ESTP 6w7 Sx/So


Jaime: ESTP
ESTP 3w2 Sx/So


Tyrion: ENTP
YES! ENTP 7w6 Sp/??


Tywin: xNTJ
ENTJ 8w? So/Sp


Littlefinger: INTJ
yeah. I think he's a 6w5 Sp/Sx


Varys: INTP (?)
I thought INFJ (6w? Sp/So)


Daenerys: INFJ
I thought INTJ or ISFP (I saw Ni and Fi as opposed to Ni and Fe, but you could be right here) 9w8 Sx/Sp


Viserys: ExFP
I was thinking Ne dom gone to hell, so ENFP works. 4w3 Sp/Sx or Sx/Sp[/QUOTE]

@ Elfboy

I really don't see any Te in Catelyn. She is driven in her life bij her sense of duty (SJ) and her love of her family, her children in particular She's constantly trying to fulfil their needs and she puts her own needs away for them. She also sympathize with other people quickly, like with Brienne. I think she's most likely Si > Fe (ISFJ)

Robb I find difficult to type, because we don't see much from him personally in the first two books/series. I don't know if he's a POV character later on, but I hope so. So far I don't see NF in him though. He's much alike his father working in the traditionally way, doing his 'duties'.

I see Bran as an INFP because of his "shy" nature and ability to see right through things. The way he connected to dreams and magical stuff seems very NFP.

Theon seems to me a risk-taker, loving action and war. He's smart and knows strategies to fight, but if he has taken what he's fighting for he can't keep it (I don't see any long-planning J in that). I don't think he is very good in imagining what other people are thinking and feeling. He can't motivate other people to stand by his side.

Cersei is an ESFJ, just not a typical one. I believe she's an ESFJ "gone to hell" (to use your nice choice of words). She's a control freak first class. She rules by manipulating other people emotionally. She can be very charming and she's trying to read other people's minds, focusing on their motives and beliefs. I don't see a strategical rational planner here. She keeps a lot to herself (though probably she'll share it with Jaime) but I believe this is because of her "gone to hell" / traumatic experience with her marriage.

About Viserys you're probably right. ;)

Alwyn, as you go on in the books I'll bet you'll become increasingly certain Cersei is a TJ. She seems to be a bit more tender in the show than she was in the books. For example, in the books she doesn't express nearly as much concern over the fact that Joffrey is clearly a sociopathic, sadistic monster, she only gets somewhat upset about how difficult he is to wrangle or manipulate into making more prudent choices at times.

I'd also agree with Elfboy about Theon, I think. His actions are motivated by a need to prove himself to his (estranged) family (and, to be frank, the whole thing wasn't that well planned).

Well I have read the first two books and I don't see a T in her. Why should anyone be a T if they can't see the truth about those they love? I don't think she is F because of her 'tenderness', but the way she wants to control everyone emotionally - which I see as a very unhealthy Fe funtion. In Clash of Kings with the power match with Tyrion she's trying to overwin him by feelings. She wants herself to feel safe and she's trying to beat Tyrion emotionally by trying to find his favorite whore. She isn't that strategic as her little brother. She is, however, a very unhealthy person which make her difficult to type I guess.

Theon I'm not sure about, so maybe you're right about that, though I don't think if you want to prove yourself to your family you're automatically a F? It's more the way he does that, I think, what will determine his type.

Having finished the first season, Eddard Stark is definitely ISTJ and Tyrion Lannister is definitely ENTP. I also believe that both Robb Stark and Jon Snow are both INFJs, probably my two favorite characters, next to Catelyn, who strikes me as ExFJ.

And very good to all the people who guessed Varys. Good example of a "shady" INFJ.

I'll think of the other people later.

I'm with the camp that believes Jon Snow to be an ENTJ. My reasoning based on this are found here. (http://www.typologycentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46862&page=38&p=2067431&viewfull=1#post2067431)

I sense that most of the people describing him as an INFJ are basing this on the series. As the story goes on, (I've read all five books), however, he does things that seem like something someone more comfortable with logic than ethics would do. Some of that, I think, will start to show this this season on the show.

I think people just take his strong sense of fairness, and then assume "Oh, he must be an NF." However, NT morality can actually place a strong emphasis on fairness. Fairness is actually a very systematic system of morality. Not all NT's are intent on becoming Randian superman, you know.

Jon Snow ENTJ

Arya Stark ISTP
ISFP she's extremely Fi. she looks ISTP because she's a 7w8 tomboy, but I see no Ti in her



Ned Stark ISTJ
without a doubt


Bran Stark INFP
I thought ISFP. INFP could work


Daenerys Targaryen INFJ
I think she's I?FP. she doesn't display her feelings like an FJ


Samwell Tarly INFJ
ENFP


Jaime Lannister ESTP
yes, possibly ESFP


Cersei Lannister ENTJ
I think INTJ, but ENTJ works


Tywin Lannister INTJ
definitely a xxTJ, I think ESTJ personally


Sansa Stark ENFJ
some sort of IxFx


Catelyn Stark ESFJ
IS?J


Robert Baratheon ESTP
ESFP


Joffrey Baratheon ENTJ
noo, an ES?P who is an ENTJ wannabe


Littlefinger INTJ (the Ben Linus of the series who “always has a plan”)
yes, and a more realistic portrayal of INTJ at that. (most of the the examples people think are INTJ are actually ENTJ, usually an ENTJ bent on world domination). he captures the more sensitive, sentimental side of INTJ left out of most of the descriptions which make them all sound 8w7 Sp/Sx with a 3w4 fix


Stannis Baratheon ISTJ (about as ISTJ as they get)
really? I saw him an ENTJ


The Red Priestess INFJ
probably


Theon Greyjoy ESTP
I have trouble seeing him as a T. if he's ESTP, he's in a SEVERE Se/Fe loop


Brienne ISFJ
ISTJ


Ser Loras Tyrell “The Knight of Flowers” ESTP
nooo, he's too FP to function (plus he's gay, and all cute gay guys are FPs :newwink: )


Euron “the Crow’s-Eye” ENTP
who was this again?

I absolutely love the show. Haven't read the books though.

Some disagreements I had but others seem to agree on are (i'm typing from the show and not the books) -

Littlefinger typed as intj do to his planning skills (the man with the plan he is called). But he seems more like a moment grabber who waits for the tides to turn, collects information and makes friends just in case (for future 'possibilities') than to serve a definite plan. His methods of manipulation have an extreme salesman pitch which is not commonly seen in intjs. The best example to my 1st point was his attempt to get rid of jeoffry which was more opportunistic than carefully planned. He is extremely different to benjamin linus who has been compared to him in this thread. Benjamin linus did a lot of things which appeared completely unrelated but apparently wasn't so in the end. It is possible that the actor's acting is confusing me. Also I though eddard stark was an isfj and not istj.

You have not seen the whole Littlefinger yet. Heed Varys' words from the most recent episode.

Assuming he is an intj is it safe to assume he is so/sx and i'm interested to know his etype too. He has an extroverted vibe which really genuinely seem extroverted. Of course this could the actor. Maybe entj?

In the books, Littlefinger has style; in the TV show, he merely has manners. He is also a lot more secretive - read: circumspect - in the books.

Tyrion Lannister ENTP (a quintessential ENTP fox)
Jon Snow ISFP
Arya Stark ISTP Though in the beginning of the books, she seems more Fi. She becomes more Ti with age, it seems. Either is possible, and perhaps children are too young to type, even when they are fictional characters.
Ned Stark ISTJ
Bran Stark INFP
Daenerys Targaryen INFJ
Samwell Tarly INFP
Jaime Lannister ESTP
Cersei Lannister InTJ
Tywin Lannister INTJ
Sansa Stark ISFJ or... INFP. Definitely a feeler and Si/Ne in some combination.
Catelyn Stark ENFJ
Robert Baratheon ESFP
Joffrey Baratheon ENTJ Someone dumb. Not sure which type.
Littlefinger INTJ (the Ben Linus of the series who “always has a plan”)
The Mountain ISTJ Don't know enough about this character to decide a type. Only up to book 2.
The Hound ISTJ Really? ISTJ? He's a soldier and listens to his orders. But he questions it quite a bit too. And he seems to despise authority.
The Red Viper ENTP Not sure who this character is yet. :x
Stannis Baratheon ISTJ (about as ISTJ as they get)
The Red Priestess INFJ
Theon Greyjoy ESTP I've considered ESFP, too.
Davos “The Onion Knight” ISTP
Brienne ISFP
Ser Loras Tyrell “The Knight of Flowers” xSFP
Euron “the Crow’s-Eye” ENTP

Also:
Renly Baratheon xxFP
Varys ENFJ. Or INFJ
Lord Frey... maybe INTJ
Bronn ISTP
Shae maybe an ESFP
Margaery Tyrell INFJ
Viscerys Targaryean ? Is loser a type?
Khal Drogo ESTP
Olenna ENTJ
Ser Jorah Mormont xSxx I lean towards him being an SP rather than an SJ. But I'm not too certain with him.



Jon Snow...is an IxFP.

I can't believe I saw him getting pegged as an ENTJ, Lol.
Completely agreed!! And I lean more towards ISFP. He's action oriented and lives by his sword. Dreamed of being a ranger. He holds on to so many feelings and is gentle with those more vulnerable, like Sam.

Jon Snow - ISFP (he does become ENTJish after the third book... emergence of shadow?)

I think you're right about Jaime Lannister, Robert Baratheon and Joffrey Lannister. Se-Te loop makes sense. Definitely a unhealthy version of whatever type he is, and that ones makes sense. I can really only speak from an ISFP's point of view and not an Se-dom point of view, but yes, Se types can/are retrospective.

Also:
Bran is so an INFP, in my opinion.
And Daenaerys is so an INFJ.

Now it all seems clear to me. Ned is screaming ISFJ and Catelyn's the ISTJ.
Thanks to funkymbtifiction.tumblr.com

Fe: He is a peacemaker who doesn’t like conflict and strives to avoid it. He warns even Cercei of his impending actions, since he doesn’t desire her or her children harm. Ned believes in fairness and in hearing both sides; he isn’t afraid to doll out justice and punishment when needed, and to act harshly, but he never enjoys it. Ned objects to killing without mercy or trial. He has a hard time saying no when appointed to a position that takes him far from home, and strives to protect his daughters above all.

Te: She is a woman of action, who makes whatever she wants to happen a reality. Catelyn uses the world around her and the people in it to execute her ideas; she recruits others to take Tyrion Lannister prisoner; she helps her son form strategies; and she surrenders to her sister’s authority in the trial. Catelyn stands by the governing laws that surround her, sometimes relying on them so heavily it endangers her life when others violate them.

Thank God someone sees Littlefinger as an ENTP. I also agree with those types. Also I think that Cersei is an extremely unhealthy ESFJ who wants to be a man but she can't be, so she behaves like an ESTP (she idolises her brother) and some times as an ESTJ (she likes to think of herself as her father's daughter) and not as an INTJ. But that's nitpicking.

I have read all the books so far and I still see him as an ENTP. Of course he has long plans, but we ENTPs can have long plans as well. But he is way to opportunistic and adaptable to be INTJ or ENTJ, if you have those types in your mind.

INTJ.

Like a master chess player, Littlefinger waits for his opponent to make the wrong move...
It's isn't opportunity as much as it is foresight.

You better believe he's controlling events (see season 1 with the dagger leading to the arrest of Tyrion, maneuvering Lord Stark to investigate the Cersei/Jaime affair which led to the Stark insurrection) but it is so subtle and under-the-radar that you don't notice it until it is too late...he is an amoral monster who has one objective and that makes him a very dangerous person--perhaps the most dangerous man in all of Westeros.

I like this guy.

I read half if the book two and was shocked as to how boring the books were and how terrible some of the castings were.

However it's still a brilliant book and most if the castings were spot on.

cafe we discussed this earlier in case you don't remember: from my experience (esp after reading one if the books of this particular series) is that it us better to read the book before seeing any of the screen adaptations.

Littlefinger adapts on the moves of others. He makes his subtle moves and he waits the reaction of others. He made his moves in season 1 and prior to the first book and he waited the chaos that the Starks and Lannisters would bring in Westeros. He wants opportunities so he creates them. As he says, he thrives in chaos. He doesn't have one single plan rather he adapts well in chaos. That's what makes him the most dangerous person in Westeros.
On the other hand, Varys - an INFJ- has a great plan in his mind that he shares with no one. He is the subtle and under-the-radar master chess player. But once you learn his methods you can predict his next moves. With Littlefinger you can expect the unpredictable.

+1 on the bolded.

However, he never has a single plan--he has one objective. This is the game and he is the best player.
And he knows how people will react to the "chaos" he orchestrates long before the plan is set in motion.

And Littlefinger telegraphs his punches like an exhausted boxer. Nonetheless...

Remember when Cersei flipped that on him in Season 2 when she instructed him to find Arya?
Inferior Se backfire, bro. Inferior Se. She doesn't play the game--she exerts Te force (admirable, imo).


On the other hand, Varys - an INFJ- has a great plan in his mind that he shares with no one. He is the subtle and under-the-radar master chess player. But once you learn his methods you can predict his next moves. With Littlefinger you can expect the unpredictable.

Both characters are essentially the same in this regard, only Varys isn't an absolute nihilist.
He actually "serves" King's Landing unlike Baelish (who only serves himself).

While Varys caters to people's humanity, Baelish exploits their internal desires and wishes (your signature basically says it all).
