    Default Pride and Prejudice Character Types

    What types do you think the characters (from the movie especially) are? I'm unsure about most, though Mr. Darcy seems VERY INTJ. And is it just me, or is the movie more romantic, and the book funnier?

    Mr. Collins is ISTJ and Lady Catherine is ESTJ. Or why they get along so well together.

    I agree with you that the film seems more romantic and the book seems more funny.

    Mr. Darcy has a lot of INTJ traits and ISTJ triats as well. For example that he never raised his voice at his servants, was never cross at them, and was benevolent to all his subjects seems more ISTJ to me. Also, his accepting responsibility for Wickham and his regular attendance to his business affairs including the writing of letters, all seems ISTJ to me.

    The thing that seems most INTJ is his behavior at the dance hall, but I have an ISTJ brother-in-law who could use a few lessons in getting along with people, if you get my drift.


    To tell the truth I think he's both. You can do that with a fictional character.

    Mr. Bennett - INTP
    Jane - INFP
    Mrs. Bennett - ESFJ
    Mr. Bingley - ISFP

    This site argues that Darcy is an INTJ and Elizabeth an INFJ.


    And to broaden the topic a little, I'm actually reading Emma at the moment. Anyone want to have a guess at those characters? Emma seems like an ExFJ to me.

    Isn't Mrs. Bennett more ditsy than ESFJ? Isn't she more ESFP? She was just as excited as the girls that the "Officers!" were coming. And thinking about it, the way she made Jane catch a cold on purpose just to manipulate the situation so her daughter could catch a rich husband seems very ESTP-ish to me.

    This essay actually makes more sense than seeing Elizabeth as a Thinking type. I read Keirsey and kept trying to place her among the NTs and failed. Darcy is decidedly INTJ, and Mr. Bennet such a classic INTP I could almost see him with an Einstein hairdo.

    That was a great article obviously written by someone who has good command of the subject.
    I guess I will have to concede that Darcy is an INTJ.

    Sorry, I haven't read Emma recently enough.

    Default Pride and Prejudice

    What do you think about the characters in Pride and Prejudice? Forgive me if there has already been a thread about this topic, but I haven't found one.

    Pretty sure that Elizabeth is ENFP and Mr. Darcy is either INFJ or INTJ....leaning towards INFJ....

    The younger two sisters are SP I think. As well as the other rich gentleman, Bingley.

    Mary is probably either SJ or NT...

    The father is an SJ of some kind, I think. The mother as well....ESFJ I think....

    What do you think?

    I think Darcy is a T. I can't imagine him being so blunt during his proposal if he was not.
    I think he has INTJ and ISTJ qualities.
