    I always thought ISTJ for Don and his wife. They both remind me of the ISTJ's I know.

    Roger seems like the ESTP

    Don an ESTP? That's madness. The man is obviously an introvert. He isn't a P, he is very rigid and stuck in his ways. He HATES change. Absolutely despises it. Don is a man of loyalty; he is practical, realistic, responsible, and matter-of-fact. He's quiet and serious 99.9% of the time and he works towards his goals regardless of his current distractions. And once he makes up his mind, that is it. How can he be an extrovert when he is so secretive about his private life? He does not even have real "friends". A social life is more of a chore to him than anything. Both him and Betty are alike in these ways. They have a certain "image" that they have to keep up. And using manipulation as typing him? Every type uses a form a manipulation.

    Joan- ESFJ
    Roger- ESTP (maybe N). He seems impulsive rather than emotional.

    Agree otherwise.

    I don't see much Si in Roger. And why T rather than F for Betty? She seems like a rather run of the mill housewife.

    Whoa! Can someone justify an ISTJ Don Draper for me? Very little about his character seems to hit on the notes I usually associate with that type, especially an ISTJ living in the SJ-est of SJ eras. : ) One being a true dedication to tradition and his family life, which Don evidently lacks. Don also seems to exist more in a "shades of gray" world that conflicts with the right vs. wrong mentality of an ISTJ. In fact, Don's whole "ad man extraordinaire" attribute conveys a very "just let inspiration come" approach rather than any well-ordered SJ methodology.

    He may not have the attitude of an SJ, but that's not a requirement for the type. He's detail-oriented as all fuck, has a sharp memory, and enjoys working with his hands. It's either ISTJ or ISTP, and Te fits better than Ti for him.

    Don Draper is soooo ISTP. Introverted Thinking? Definitely. (Maybe some spoilers ahead?)

    Introverted Thinking often involves finding just the right word to clearly express an idea concisely, crisply, and to the point. Using introverted Thinking is like having an internal sense of the essential qualities of something, noticing the fine distinctions that make it what it is and then naming it. It also involves an internal reasoning process of deriving subcategories of classes and sub-principles of general principles
    .

    Introverted Thinking

    Very, VERY much like how Don comes up with some of his best work. (Ex- "It's toasted")

    He lives impulsively, leaving for days at a time to run around with some band of European wanderers. Begins multiple sexual affairs rather easily (action and sensory experience!). Hates being regulated by contract by McCann because he lives by his own rules, man! That's ISTP-dom.

    Though I can see the Te in his compartmentalization, so I will give you that.

    Not directly related to this subject, but:
    I want to emphasize, though, that many Mad Men characters may be mistyped as SJ (especially the women!) because the society that the characters lived in/were raised in idealized stability, traditional roles, and "good" values to an extent our culture just doesn't anymore.

    The P-ness shows underneath, especially given the level of character depth and development in that show. Hardly any characters in Mad Men are actually SJ. I could buy Don being ISTP though.
