Has anyone read the Divergent book series by Veronica Roth? Any thoughts on the MBTI types of the characters or the type correlations for the five factions?
I've read both Divergent and it's sequel Insurgent and I'm having a hard time coming up wtih an MBTI type for the major characters. Maybe because Tris and Tobias/Four are divergent types and don't neatly fit into one faction. Alot of the characters are rather complex rather than being cookie cutter stereotypes, which I suppose adds to the challenge of typing them.
My rough guess would ISTP for Tris just because she reminds me somewhat of Katniss from Hunger Games who I also type as ISTP.
For Tobias/Four, I have no idea. I found a Q & A page and the author of the book, thought ISFJ but I don't know how much she was really thinking of Myers-Briggs when writing the book. In some ways he kind of fits ISFJ but in some ways not.
I think the five factions can be roughly correlated as follows:
Dauntless (emphasizes bravery): SP
Abnegation (emphasizes selflessness): F, especially SFJ
Candor (emphasizes honesty): T
Erudite (emphasizes knowledge and learning): NT
Amity (emphasizes peacefulness): F, especially NFP
Any thoughts as to the characters types and the types of the factions?
