    I don't think Malcolm's very extroverted at all. A perfect example was a scene in which Malcolm was in a small party, and felt absolutely suffocated. He didn't talk to anyone, and was miserable at the party. He doesn't really like being around others, he has about two or three friends, and he talks to the camera more than other people.

    You're right about Dewey though, he is definitely an Introvert.

    She's so emotional sometimes though. She gets angry and cries a lot. I think she's an unhealthy ESFJ.

    Dewey's F. He has tremendous empathy, and definitely is a Feeler over a Thinker. INFJ or INFP, that's a tougher question.

    Surely ESTJs can get angry and cry a lot as well? She just doesn't seem bothered about having friends or being nice or cordial, she just administrates and criticises everything. Plus there are a number of times where she'll do whatever it takes to get her way.

    My absolute favorite TV show..
    I positively delight in it..
    It never gets boring no matter how many times I watch it.

    A few interesting facts.. It has no laugh track nor no live studio audience.. It is shot with Film not in typical TV video ..All scenes are shot using only one camera and It was the first sit-com where the main character talked directly to the viewers.
    truly ground breaking

    Now for my guesses

    Hal-ISFJ
    Lois-ESFJ
    Malcolm-INTP
    Reese-ISTJ
    Dewey-INFP
    Francis-xNFJ

    Other characters

    Piama-ESFJ
    Craig-INTP
    Stevie-INTJ
    Spangler-ESTJ
    Otto-ISFP
    Mr Herkabe(Malcolms teacher) ENTJ

    JMO..

    I think the key difference is that ESFJs DO NOT WANT to be in charge. Their perfect world simply runs like they expect it to (according to whatever paradigm they have latched onto, whether it be middle america soccer mom, east coast elite progressive, Orange county pretentious or whatever...). Again, their perfect world just lets them fit into the roles they wish everyone played, and they would take care of the rituals. Typical middle american male ESFJ might be concerned with throwing the superbowl party or arranging the march madness bracket, but he/she doesnt WANT to be "in charge".

    ESTJs DO WANT to be In Charge. Take miss piggy. She absolutely ALWAYS wants to be the In Charge directing personality, even when people are following the roles she wants them too.

    I personally think lois fits the ESTJ mold much better according to this analysis...

    the others:
    Hal ENTP (think less of the ENTP inventors, and more of the ENTP idiosyncratic oddities...Hal shaving his BODY hair while reading the newspaper in the kitchen, his sudden obsession with "speed walking" etc...)
    Malcolm INTP
    Reece ESFP
    Dewey INFP
    Stevie INTJ
    Francis ENFJ

    I also agree that Lois is ESTJ. Getting angry a lot is not a T or an F thing. Ts with unhealthy tertiary/inferior F functions can lose their temper and lash out emotionally just as much as unhealthy Fs can, especially when dealing with people extremely close to them who they can't easily detach from (like their own children). I don't remember Lois crying, but that's also not type-indicative.

    Aside from that, I can see a lot of inferior Fi in Lois's behavior. She usually sticks to her own values over group values. For example:

    - When Kitty cheats on Abe, Lois refuses to forgive Kitty at first even though Abe (and everyone else, IIRC) welcomed her back with open arms.

    - When Dewey steals the bottle of cognac from Lois's work and she gets fired, she refuses to beg for her job back even when her family is in desperate financial need (if that isn't stubborn inferior Fi pride, I don't know what is).

    She's also described in the show as not caring about what anyone thinks of her (and her behavior reflects that) which seems much more Te than Fe.

    Lois: ESFJ

    Hal: ESFP

    Francis: I don't know; haven't seen enough of him

    Reese: ESTP

    Dewey: INFP

    Malcolm: ENTP

    Don't know the other characters enough.

    I'd say Malcolm is an ENTP.

    Actually, I agree with you.

    I knew that I related to him, but I also didn't. I feel that with certain e7 ENTPs.

    Yeah... most ENTPs are exactly the same way until they "find themselves".
