I was thinking about this the other day, and I wanted to make her an NF because I enjoy her character, but I just wasn't feeling it. I don't know what other type she could be (ISFJ, maybe?), but I don't get NF from her.
When she goes off to college, she turns into a complete disaster. It wasn't because she was idealistic or her ideals were compromised or anything but because she was naive. She's always done everything she was supposed to do and doesn't break the rules (although that's not to say that rebelling is a common NF characteristic). I think most NFs, when the right cause comes along, will stand firmly by it. I don't think Rory would necessarily do that.
And don't even get me started on her relationships :rolli:
but eventually he learns to stand up for himself. by, like, age 10. what kind of INFP could do that at that age?
Certainly N; probably IN (the only EN type I could guess would be ENFP) but I can't imagine an INFP rallying the troops and leading like he did for the Special Class at that young an age.
INTJ? INTP? INFJ?
I disagree. He could most definitely be an INFP.
Even though during that age I was mostly introverted, my classmates always picked me as the leader in group projects. Whenever I was truly interested in the subject matter, I was articulate and bold and sure about it. No one could quite challenge me because not only was I knowledgeable but I also had the support of those I inspired.
I find it hard to type people in real life television shows as INFx. Usually you have to watch cartoons in order to see characters of the INFP or INFJ variety.
I agree. I don't see a lot of INFx types on TV or in movies. You're more likely to see an extroverted intuitive because their personality is more evident on the surface, or an ISFP if it's an artsy fartsy type.
I would venture to say that Angela on My So Called Life was an INFP.
