    Nice. Although I think Vizzini might be more of an ENTP. He's so animated.

    An ENTP would also certainly work for Vizzini.

    My rationale for INTP was his well-forged (if poorly applied) internal thought register when determining which goblet contained Iocane powder.

    Has anyone besides me read the book?

    Inigo and Fezzik are somewhat better developed in the book. So is Buttercup, but it's not flattering.

    I think Fezzik could be an F.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I've haven't read the book, but going by the movie I think all four NT types are represented.

    Westley - ENTP
    Viccini - INTJ
    Prince Humperdinck - ENTJ
    Count Rugen/Six-Fingered Man - INTP

    Also
    Ínigo Montoya - ESFJ
    Fezzik - INFP
    Princess Buttercup - Can't tell because she has no personality.

    Viccini seems to me to be an INTP. A little too excitable for INTJ'ness.

    I say he's at least an E. I's are rarely leaders of a group.

    Waiting for introverted response to the contrary...

    INTP's are the least excitable people I know. Also Viccini is more of a planner, and he's more directive than an INTP would be. "Wait here and when he comes within range smash his head with a rock." Also when he's playing the "iocane powder game" he's clearly an INTJ. He's not reasoning through it with Ti, because how do you really reason through something like that? Rather he's examining the possibilities from every angle, which is Ni.
