    Default Little Women

    One of my favorite childhood books was Little Women. Just out of curiosity, what types do you think the major characters have?

    Hey, that's really interesting. I would agree that Amy is totally SP. Meg is totally SJ and Beth is completely NF. Jo is NT??? Really? because that's the person I relate to most in the book.....I kept thinking - damn she is just like me hahaha

    I swear even as a young lady I would act like she did. Are you sure?

    Well, no, it's just an opinion. I totally related to her character too, although she is more extroverted than I. But she doesn't have well-developed Fe, that's for sure. That's what gets her into trouble.

    Yeah me either (Although I've learned to refine it with time, sort of).

    Like her, I've always had grand dreams and worked towards them, very career oriented, willing to venture off into the unknown to do it, cast aside perfectly good marriage proposals lol, let my anger get the best of me at times, and yes, I would be the person claiming that logically, women should have the right to vote not because they are good or bad, but because they are human. I always acted in grand style (by myself because I was an only child, so I had to make the other characters up) making up my own theater based on history or my life, acted first, regretted later, been there for people who needed me, and even got swept away by a German intellectual.

    (Scary thought: Today one of my students called me an intellectual thinker - I was like shit no!!!! Oh man how embarrassing!)

    I think NFs can also come across like that, especially those of us who are really ambitious and willing to act on our dreams. We go into do or die mode and that means, get out of the way, the Panzer division is coming!!!!!

    I think Jo is an ENFP - but that's just my dumbass opinion - and I don't know crap - but what do you think?

    I think perhaps ENFJ for Jo. I love her. She is one of my favorite characters ever.
    Beth - INFP
    Amy - Blah, she is so annoying. I don't know what she is.
    Meg - ISFJ maybe

    I totally see Jo as ENFJ.
    Meg seems ISFJ to me.
    Si, Fe equal Fi & Ti

I can still see my dad with the apron on. Better flip that Frito, dad, you know how I like it." -Mitch Hedberg

    Somehow, I've always thought of Beth as an ISFP.

    Amy...ESFP? I think it may be hard to tell, because she was still a little girl throughout most of the book. Preteens are hard to type, I should say!
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Beth - IXFP
    Amy - ESFP
    Meg - ISXJ

    Yeah, I could see Beth as ISFP. I almost put IXFP but I think she is more N than S, if I had to choose. I think Amy could be ESFP. She is hard to type though. Laurie... hmm. I love Laurie. For some reason I am worse at typing males so it is hard for me to say what he is.
    fidelia, what makes you think Jo is P and not J, out of curiousity?
