    Default Nancy Botwin from Weeds

    Anyone have any clue on her type?

    I have no idea. I get kind of an FJ vibe from her but that's about it.

    My vote for Nancy is xsfj.

    Other characters:

    Celia-psycho estj
    Dean-intp
    Doug-estp
    Andy-also estp, maybe esfp but probably not
    Silas-yet again estp
    Shane-infp
    Isabella-intj
    Conrad-infj
    Heylia-estj

    I've only seen seasons 1-3, so I don't know if that changes things any.

    xSFJ for Nancy is dumb.

    SFJ moms don't sell pot to pay the bills, even if their husbands are dead.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Generally they don't, but she's not exactly a natural at it, with all the blunders she makes. At least in the first two seasons she seems to get by mostly by being sweet enough to convince other people to help her.

    I haven't seen any of the later seasons though, so I'm a little out of date.

    Well how many upper-middle class soccer moms sell pot to pay bills in the first place? Just because she's more than a little bit dysfunctional doesn't relate that much to her mbti type, imo. In the real world, it might be particularly odd for an sfj mom to make the choices Nancy does, but Weeds is not the real world and I don't think her occupation overshadows the way the rest of her character is portrayed.

    edit: And as poppy points out, she's not a particularly good pot dealer either, she's in it for her kids, counter-intuitively enough, and she experiences quite a bit of cognitive dissonance about the choices she makes.

    Nancy = NeFi
    Celia = FeNi
    Doug = NeTi
    Andy = SiFe
    Dean = TiNe
    Conrad = SiTe
    Shane = NiFe
    Esteban = TeNi?
    Silas = SeFi?

    I dunno if I agree with Nancy being FJ. She seems to do best when shes reacting to a situation in the moment, and generally the things she plans, she doesnt exactly think through. Maybe ISFP? I'd be curious to hear Negatives theory on NeFi though.

    Any FJ type for Nancy is silly; they always focus on how much of a failure she feels like for never really being that great a mom. She wants to be but just isn't very responsible/has a hard time thinking of others at the right times (always remembers it later and feels stupid for forgetting.) And anybody is going to have trouble with the learning curve getting into the drug business, especially a middle aged white suburban mom--she gets by by being smooth enough to get others to help her, and she does a lot of on the spot adapting and very little planning. She's also not very outwardly emotional at all, in most cases.

    I'm going with ISTP, personally.

    Hm, I'd buy ISFP, but not ISTP.
