    So far, I've got (mostly of Harry Potter - can you correct if I'm wrong about their type?):

    ESTJ: Vernon Dursley (Harry Potter)
    ISTJ: ???
    ESFJ: Molly Weasley, Gilderoy Lockhart (Harry Potter)
    ISFJ: Don Jos (opera Carmen)

    ENTJ: Stach (Koning van Katoren)
    INTJ: Voldemort (Harry Potter)
    ENTP: prof. Gobelijn (Jommeke)
    INTP: ???

    ESTP: Horace Slughorn (Harry Potter)
    ISTP: Arthur Weasley (Harry Potter)
    ESFP: Ludo Bagman (Harry Potter), Lambik (Suske & Wiske)
    ISFP: Harry Potter (Harry Potter)

    ENFJ: Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter)
    INFJ: ???
    ENFP: Carmen (opera Carmen)
    INFP: Bastian Bux (Neverending Story)

    Thank you!
    I think you are using way too much harry potter

    ENFJ: Morgan Freeman as God in "Bruce All Mighty"/"Evan All Mighty" (like any of his characters except maybe his one in Fast Black)
    ESTP: James T. Kirk (Star Trek 2009)

    These are the most perfect I could think of...

    So you want movies and TV shows as well? I'll think about that.

    Problem is, me being from Belgium, I probably don't know most TV shows. I'm also not really a movie fan, too...
    Actually, I'm making some web pages (in Dutch...) about MBTI to add to my website about writing. The purpose is to make it understandable, informative and fun to Dutch-speaking people... That's why I include Jan Terlouw, which is a classic in our regio.

    What about Roald Dahl characters? Matilda (ENTJ?), Mrs. Trunchbull (ENTJ too? Both Matilda and Trunchbull devise very original punishments...) Willy Wonka (ENTP?)...

    I agree on Mrs. Trunchbull, but I would be more prone to call Matilda an introvert. If she were an ENTJ, I would expect her to enlist some of her classmates and not to be so private and independent.

    My guesses for some other Roald Dahl characters:

    Mr. Wormwood - ESTP
    Mrs. Wormwood - ESTJ
    Ms. Honey - INFJ

    The BFG - ENFP
    Sophie - INFJ

    Willy Wonka - ENTP (I agree with you)

    George (from George's Marvelous Medicine) - INTP

    Ok. If I come up with some super well-known characters, I'll let you know

    I haven't read Matilda and it's been a while since I saw the movie, but in the movie she was definitely an INFP in my opinion, and Ms. Honey as well. The little girl who played Matilda had such beautiful tender eyes that she might have added to my typing, but I do believe that in fiction, the bookworm dreamer who deeply cares of those s/he loves (and often is an outsider) is usually an INFP. Mrs. Trunchbull was certainly some sort of an ExTJ and Matilda's family were definitely very strong (and obnoxious) Ss, to provide a contrast.

    I haven't read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory yet, so I can't be of any help with Willy Wonka at the moment.

    Matilda INFP - no way. She's interested in theories rather than mystic connections. When she realised she had this telekinetic abilities, the first thing she wanted to do is experiment to see what the limits of her abilities were. And she isn't that spontaneous - on the contrary, whenever she has an idea she will make a coherent plan first. INTJ seems okay... though she has some extravert tendencies (but who hasn't?).

    Anne of Green Gables is quite the chatterbox. I've skimmed the pages again... I see some ENFP characteristics too. But if you look at the functions... it's Ne at the service of Fi, not vice versa. I'm happy to find an INFP example who's not this seclused.

    George (of George's Marvelous Medicine) INTP - yes. And his father, Mr. Kranky, is an ENTP! (Why oh why didn't they think of keeping some of that medicine to let it be tested chemically?!). What type would that awful grandma be? I'll reread the book!

    Before I add Mrs. Wormwood and Miss Honey, I'll reread that book too... On first sight, ESTJ and INFJ seem right, though. (Yay, an INFJ! I lack examples of that one!)

    So far, I've got now:
    ("De zes snaren" is my novel... Of course I include that one on my website, for a bit of publicity. I've added them here too, because I want you to know of which types I have examples and of which ones I lack)

    ESTJ:
    Vernon Dursley (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)
    Eustace Clarence Scrubb (Narnia, C.S. Lewis)
    Marilla (Anne of Green Gables, )
    Tann (De zes snaren)
    Arduin (De zes snaren)
    Miran (De vierde god, work in progress...)

    ISTJ:

    ESFJ:
    Molly Weasley (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)

    ISFJ:

    ESTP:
    Horace Slughorn (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)
    Mr. Wormwood (Matilda, R. Dahl)

    ISTP:
    Arthur Weasley (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)

    ESFP:
    Lambik (Suske en Wiske, W. Vandersteen)
    Dickon (The secret garden, F.H. Burnett)
    Aayu (De zes snaren)

    ISFP:
    Mary Lennox (The secret garden, F.H. Burnett)

    ENTJ:
    Stach (Koning van Katoren, J. Terlouw)
    Mrs. Trunchbull (Matilda, R. Dahl)

    INTJ:
    Voldemort (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)<br>
    Severus Sneep (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)<br>
    Colin Craven (De geheime tuin, ...)<br>
    Matilda (Matilda, R. Dahl)

    ENTP:
    Prof. Gobelijn (Jommeke, J. Nys)
    Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling)
    Mr. Kranky (George's Marvelous Medicine, R. Dahl)
    Willy Wonka (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, R. Dahl)

    INTP:
    Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes, A.C. Doyle)
    De Instrumentenbouwer (De zes snaren)
    George (George's Marvelous Medicine, R. Dahl)

    ENFJ:
    Raacheld (De zes snaren)

    INFJ:

    ENFP:
    narrator (The Jang phenomenon, T. Lee)
    Carmen (Carmen, Bizet)
    The BFG (The BFG, R. Dahl)

    INFP:
    Anne (Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery)
    Bastiaan Balthazar Boeckx (The neverending story, M. Ende)
    Isa (Isa's dream, M. Kunst)

    Still searching for:
    a nice ENFJ (Raacheld is an annoying manipulating one) (more nice ENFJs are always welcome, of course)
    some INFJs, ISFJs and ISTJs... (I'm going to check Mrs. Honey)
    a nasty ESFJ, ISTP, ESFP, ISFP, ENTP, INTP and INFP (I've created a very dark INFP on the verge of destroying the world, but that one isn't fit for publication yet.)
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    Well, only based on the movie, I'd have to disagree. Again, I haven't read the book, but in the movie she seemed like an INFP. You're fully entitled to disagree, but I think so because everything she was doing was extremely based on Fi. She "punishes" all the people around her who somehow violate her values and morals and she fiercely protects her loved ones. Besides that, at the beginning she hermits herself in her fantasy world which she deeply loves (no analyzis whatsoever), which is also typical for NFs, as well as her desire to found someone who will understand her and love her. She would also definitely never put Te before Fi. I'm not trying to imply that real-life NTs can't do the same, but Matilda is a skillfully written character constituing a type of character, and that type would be INFP, imo. Perhaps in the book she was really more of a thinker, but bear in mind that mystical connections =/= INFP and theories and experiments =/= INTJ. Besides, INFPs are typically not too spontaneous (not every INFP is Anne Shirley ), and every plan requires planning, doesn't it? I wonder what the book Matilda is like, perhaps she came across different in the movie.

    If you're looking for a fictional INFJ, I would offer Sara Crew in The Little Princess (also by Frances Hodgson Burnett).
