    Default Shakespearean Characters

    There's been a lot of debate over Shakespeare's type and a lot of obsessing over his work on this forum. But has anyone bothered trying to type his characters? I mean, I haven't read enough Shakespeare to contribute myself.... I was just wondering.

    Forgive me if this thread already exists.
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    Tom Stoppard's 'Rosencrantz' and 'Guildenstern' maybe.


    Shakespeare's R & G were definitely not.

    And Polonius: ESTJ?

    Shakespeare was a thief. So was Stoppard. Who had the best steal.

    Stoppard.
    Maybe Tim Roth's character was INTJ, but I think Gary Oldman's character was INFP. (I can never remember which one is actually R or G.)

    But enough about Stoppard.
