    Default The IT Crowd

    British television sitcom.

    Moss: INTJ
    Roy: ENTP
    Jen: eNFP (Played by an eNFP)
    The Boss (forget his name): ESFP(?)

    These are really just ballpark guesses. I think the true type of the boss is insane, although he's definetely E. Don't really know the Moss and Roy actors so won't hazard to type them.

    Roy is ENTP? Dunno. Seems more INTP to me.
    laid back, lazy, Irish IT engineer who goes to great lengths to avoid performing his role within the organisation such as (in episode 3) a machine to say his first trouble shooting step "Hello IT, have you tried turning it off then on again" usually followed by "are you sure its plugged in". He constantly eats junk food and has a low regard for his career in technology, despite signs that he is more than capable. He is a big fan of comics and often reads them when he is supposed to be working. His work attire is very casual compared to his colleagues; he wears a new geek-related t-shirt in every episode. Before becoming an IT consultant, he held a job as a waiter, during which time he would carry the food of rude customers in his trousers until he served it to them. He often attempts to attract women by various methods, such as pretending to be a "bastard" because he believes that that is what women want.
    Moss is quintessential hopeless android INTJ.
    What about the creepy goth dude played by Noel whathisname that lives in the server room? INFP?
    Jen seems like an ESFP to me. Remember the shoes?
    Boss guy (Denholm Reynholm) is a Nazi ESTJ type.

    I always saw Jen as more of an EXFJ. Pulling the guys together with her social graces. And, while I'm not set on this, I saw Moss as an ISTJ. Don't see much N in him at all. Goth dude I'd be more inclined to think of as ISFP. Roy seems INTP to me.

    ESFPs don't have social graces? Jen don't got no N.
    Moss is a complete sensotard. More N than Roy. And an Fe-free zone.
    Roy could be ISTP actually.

    Ah, who the fuck cares? It's a sit-com!

    They have social graces, but aren't so likely to pull everyone together. They're more likely to try to be the standout quirky one everyone loves. They tend not to take much responsibility for the lives of those around them, imo.

    I loved the "friendface" episode. That entire episode Q-F-T.

    Jen is totally P. She's so laid back and generally disorganised.

    Maybe Roy INTP, although he always seems E compared to Moss, but then who wouldn't?

    Boss maybe ESTJ.

    What about Katherine Parkinson who plays Jen?

    Moss - INTJ
    Roy - INTP
    Jen - EXFP
    Richmond - INFP
    Boss #1 - EXTJ
    Boss #2 - ESFP
    I am almost positive that all my typings are correct. It is just hard to tell the S from the N in some of them.
