    Yes. Glad you made this thread.

    I came up with the same conclusions except i saw olivia as more of an Fe type. Since when has she shown vulnerability ?
    Her feelings seem to be rational=Fe.
    or at least she rationalizes them. She is definitely intuitive.

    Why do you think INFP ?

    I know an INFP when I see one? But you need more than that I suppose. Well I do remember a scene where she was arguing with her boss, who thought she was getting too emotional about a case. She said something like, ďIím emotional, thatís me, thatís who I am, and Iím fine with it.Ē She was declaring her identity, her personal values, demanding to be accepted for who she is. Plus, just going by preferences, I also come up with INFP. I donít see ENFJ, is that what you meant by Fe?

    It could be that she is an Fi dom - and that makes her rational from that perspective. She does show Ne. I concede to that....especially when she was in the chamber to link minds with her lover.

    I can see the logic of the argument made for Olivia being an INFP, but I've been watching the show from the beginning (with the exception of this weeks episode if there was a new one) and never felt a connection toward her that I'd expect from an INFP portrayal (but there are different variations of INFP, so thats not unreasonable). My gut feeling for her was iNtJ with some uncrtainty on I/E and a lot of uncertainty on F/T.

    Slightly offtopic. If you have watched earlier seasons of Numb3rs, what would you type Megan Reeves as, and do you see a lot of similarites between Megan and Olivia? Megan Reeves is one of the few (and the only that comes to mind) characters I've seen on TV that I relate to and feel is a good representation of INFP (I could be wrong on that, but if I am its one more reasont o question my own self-analysis of type).

    Back to topic... Ok, I'm probably way off on both of these, but to me, Walter seems more Extroverted than Peter, yet this is the second post I've seen with Walter typed as an INTP. Do INTPs here look at Walter and strongly connect with him? For what its worth, Walter is my favorite character in the show and has quickly become one of my all time favorite characters, but I would have typed him as ENTP. I think its his spontanteous dialog and enthusiastic expressions in the lab scense that gives me the impression of E.

    WIth Peter, xxTP is what stands out, but I can't really determine I/E and S/N for him. He seems more practical than Walter and very quick thinking, and Ne makes sense, but it seems reasonable that a smart xSTP could fit that description as well. Althought he has displayed social confidence, he comes across as emotionally guarded (could be a factor of T preference) and I just get more of an Introvert vibe from him as if the social stuff is a role he steps into as needed, but its not his true self.

    For those who think Walter is an Introvert and Peter is an Extrovert, I'd like to know what others see that leads them to those conclusions (I have very low confidence about my typing of Walter and Peter, but high curiousity as to how others reached those conclusions).

    ENTJ would be my guess for Broyles as well, but we also only see his work personality in the episodes so far.

    I wouldnít say that ENTP is out of the question for Walter, but at this point - "spontaneous dialogue" notwithstanding- I donít see him as an E.

    Thereís also a tendency to mistype characters like Olivia whose careers donít stereotypically match their personality types. The last thing you expect an FBI agent, let alone a really good one, to be is an INFP, so you start out assuming another type.

    Actually she seems kind of surly, if weíre talking about the same person.


    I have this habit of eating dinner in front of the TVÖbut seldom when Iím watching Fringe.

    Walter = INTJ
    Peter = ISTP
    Olivia = ISTJ
    The black guy in charge = INTJ
    The pain in the ass who's trying to shut Dunham down = ENTJ
    Lady running Massive Dynamic: ESTJ
    John Scott - ESTP

    The lab assistant who has been taking apart computers since she was five....
    The girl with the curl

    Surly....I thought ISTJ, but she works behind the scenes....so ISFJ is an option.

    Right, thatís exactly who Iím talking about. ISTJ, or even INTJ, would be my first guess.
