    Default Clerks

    I think most people are familiar with the 1994 Kevin Smith film, Clerks. If you haven't you should, because its hilarious. Anyway, I felt like having a go at the characters, so please excuse the very novice-level typing.

    Dante: INxJ
    Randal: ISFP
    Jay: ESFP
    Silent Bob: INTJ (?)
    Veronica: ENTP
    Caitlin: ESFJ (?)

    I don't think I buy Jay as an F. ESTP or ISTP.

    You're probably right, but I chose F because his decisions are typically inconsistent and somewhat illogical given the situations he finds himself getting into in Smith's films.

    But why you type Dante INxJ, and expecially a J ?
    He seems to live a resigned and aimless life.
    I don't know how many INTJ or INFJ could relate to him...

    Assuming Silent Bob is an NT I would suggest that he is INTP.\

    Although he is "silent" which makes him somewhat more difficult to type.

    I was having trouble typing Dante, so I wasn't sure if he was a J or a P.

    Which is why I put a question mark next to his name.

    Dante - ISFJ (clearly some form of high Si user, and he does seem to be a feeler rather than a thinker)
    Randal - ENTP (obvious Ne-Ti user, what with his quirky ideas and random connections that simply pop into his head. His sociable misanthropy is also common among unhealthy ENTPs, who often "hate people, but love gatherings.")
    Jay - ESFP (his T seems more Te than it does Ti, and he's clearly more Fi than Fe in films like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, a film that displays his F full-force)
    Silent Bob - INFP (shows Fi-dominance in other films, is a source of moral support, and lives a rather carefree life)
    Veronica - ESFJ (half of her screen-time is her complaining about the lack of motivation of the leads, and her rants do seem very Fe-Si in nature)
    Caitlin - ESFP (seemingly impulsive, strongly Fi)

    To add to this, Clerks II characters:

    Becky - INTP
    Emma - ESFJ
    Elias - INFJ
    Lance - ENTJ

    Dante - INFP for sure, obvious FI user. Perhaps, even an unhealthy FI user. An example, is how he blames over for his misfortunes in life and constantly lets the world run him over. He's not a J due to his misdirection and constant indecision.

    Randal - ISTP

    Jay - ESxP, since he does seem like an ESFP is Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, but in every other film he does come off like an ESTP.

    Silent Bob - clear INTP

    Veronica - ESFJ

    Caitlin Bre - ESFP (that rhymes)
