ok, one of the main reasons I got into MBTI and personality study in general was to find a good way to schematize the temper of the charcters of a novel I am writing.
it was quite hard to impersonate them and answer the tests, and therefore the result I got may be shaky..... still, I am going to describe the main ones briefly and I would like to hear what their personality type should be in your opinion. I wrote my idea, but hearing new opinions is never bad.

here they are
I hope you enjoyed them but more than that, I would like your opinion about which type should I tag them. remember, these are not people and the type can be purely stereotypical, I will develop them and obviously these descriptions are oversemplifications, their story is much longer!
ah, as for the relationship between them:
the protagonist gets on well with everyone, especially with mc 3 which becomes his best friend.
main character 1 does not get on well with mc 2, and finds mc 3 bothersome.
main character 3 pretty much hates mc 1, suspects mc 2's true reasons and admires mc 4.
main character 4 has a strong hatred against mc 5, that she overcomes over time.
main character 5 despises mc 4, although he overcomes this over time.
