    She's not S. Can't you sense the hidden core in there? It's like something cloaked, but you can't read past the cloaking device.

    It's just the Fe that matches.

    ESFJs are pretty explicit and will tell you in very clear terms over and over where they are coming from if you manage to miss it the first few hundred times.

    <3 <3 <3 I love Mary Poppins!!! This was my favorite movie as a kid and still one of my faves today.

    At first I thought, "Poppins is such an ENFJ!" But then I got to thinking she seems more T than F to me, so maybe ENTJ. Though I can see INFJ as well.

    I definitely think Mr Banks is an I. "What all this! What's all this!"
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    ESTJ (or maybe ESFJ.) All she did was come in and tell the kids to do their work AND LIKE IT.

    Nah, it was an entire process of getting the parents to spend more time with their children and specifically getting Mr. Banks to lighten up, too. That's why she leaves when the wind changes. She brings about the positive change and departs. She also encouraged kindness to animals and homeless people as one of her life lessons. The children don't just do work, either, they have all these magical experiences.

    we at least agree one TJ, her Te was very apparent to me
    - your terms were X, my terms are Y
    - criteria is X, meet it by doing Y
    - "I would like to make one thing quite clear! I don't explain anything"
    - she's always going on about being are speaking nonsense
    - she's always cool and collected and expects other people to be too (Fe users are usually a little more neurotic. even when they're not, they give off a very different vibe than Mary Poppins)
    - people loose their temper at her and you can tell she's thinking 'good heavens. control yourself!'
    - "can you imagine what would happen to me if I loved all the children I came to see" Fe users are much more direct about love and will frequently come out and say "I love you" often with much more mushy language attached
    - she keeps it business. everything she does is rational and for a purpose

    I'm actually leaning NTJ, but I agree that she didn't necessissarily have some grand Ni sceme in mind. she didn't actually have to do a whole lot

    I'm going to have to agree with Elfboy, Aquarelle, and Orangey... she is a Te-type. I guess I see why you guys are really trying to look deep for that Fe, but she has so much Te it's not even funny! But of course, she's slightly whimsical enough to be an N, but it's VERY controlled by her Te. I'd even go so far as to say she's a Te-dom.

    ENTJ is my guess.

    Exactly! She's playful and whimsical at times, and she pretends not to care too deeply about the children so they don't get too attached, knowing she has to leave them eventually. She has to draw boundaries to teach lessons and direct the kids' attention where she feels it belongs. But the whole time she's connecting the parents to their children, and helping people care about each other and not things so much.

    Edit: Okay, I'm going to watch it right now. Luckily, my roommate has the dvd. Woot!

    Mary's very different in the movie than she was in the books. Movie Mary is an INFJ masking as ISTJ to pull the wool over Mr. Banks's eyes. Notice how she'll be very warm and gentle and suddenly tip her nose back and play at being stuffy. Notice, as well, how she leaves the instant her job is done. And when is her job done?
