The whole "imaginary friend" thing could very well be INFP. Don't mean to rain on your party haha...I'm just very hesitant to award the INFJ type to anyone because it's so rare. Even in film, surprisingly.
    As I've said before, its just my perspective...

    I think she is an I type because she doens't discuss stuff out loud, she hadn't discussed her crush on Harry with Hermioney even though H knew, she was fairly closed mouth about the diary....

    As for J I just don't see her as flakey/flexibale as a P type.. she appears more planned out, she goes to quidich practice, she doesn't run out of cash like Ron does (he's a P type), she is in control of the situation - her fighting with Ron about her freedom to date (although I suspect Ps would do that too).

    It's a perspective, don't get too tied up, she isn't really

    I get a way different read on Ginny than you seem to. I don't get an intuitive feel from her at all... on the contrary, to me she seems very SP. I don't think that the character is really developed enough to type definitively, but everything we hear about her is about how ballsy and quick-witted she is. Those aren't traits that are typically associated with INFJs. I also can't think of any instances that would make me think that Ginny is N rather than S. Ginny seems pretty impulse-driven to me (hence her involvement with the diary to begin with). The things she says and does in the books strike me as STP, probably ESTP.

    Oh, now I remembered: Nicole Kidman's character in Baz Luhrmann's 'Australia' is an INFJ. Hugh Jackman's is some STP and the little boy is totally INFP.

    I guess that many characters played by Nicole Kidman are INFJs, as she's one too, imo. Virginia Woolf in 'The Hours'... definitely. The mother in 'The Others' seems like one as well. And the heroine of 'Dogville' too. In fact, I was already thinking about Mrs. Coulter in 'The Golden Compass' as an example of a fictional INFJ, but she's probably more of an ENFJ after all.

    agree so much with this

I'm genuinely interested because I can see her as an INFP as a child, but everything she does as an adult can be attributed to Ni Fe, imo. However, I have a pretty strong suspicion that Audrey Tatou is an INFJ, and that could influence substantially how the character feels to me.
    The way she exacts sneaky moral retribution could be INFP as much as INFJ. At least I relate to that, having done things in that manner.
    She seems pretty go-with-the-flow in her life. Content to just dream her life away until Nino makes an appearance & the old man prods her. INFJs seem more motivated. The general shyness, imagination, etc could be either INF type.


    Do you think so? Personally, I'd type Elizabeth as an ENTP; Elinor and Marianne in Sense and Sensibility as an ISTJ (maybe INTJ) and ENFP; Catherine in Northanger Abbey as an ISFJ, possibly (I don't recall the book too clearly). The only Austen heroine that seems INFx to me is Anne Elliot in Persuasion. I do think that Austen was an INTJ, though.
    Elizabeth Bennet was analyzed in one thread and I came away thinking she was INFJ.... I think she is close on the I/E line though. ENTP seems entirely unlikely to me.... Austen likes characters that have a moral strength and self-discipline; rarely are they impetuous. Her heroines never strike me as P types of any kind, except for Marianne in Sense & Sensibility and she's basically "punished" for it.

    I think Fanny Price in Mansfield Park may be INFJ - but I haven't read that one in a long time. I thought that Catherine could be IxFJ, but I could see S over N. And yes, Anne in Persuasion is likely INFJ.

    Hmm... to be honest, this sounds to me like your relating to her is more personally based than type based. I don't think there's anything bad about that, as the fictional character I possibly relate the most to is before mentioned INFJ Anne Elliot... I just don't think that anything you mentioned above points to an INFP and not INFJ. Maybe it's possible for INFPs to seek moral retribution, but it's typical for INFJs, for instance. INFJs are the archetypal judgers of other people's feelings/actions, the judgers who actually act and not only theorize. I think that Amelie's initial detachedness from other people is a typical Ni thing, and later she connects with them through Fe, not Ne. (She's very similar to Sara Crewe in A Little Princess in this aspect - another INFJ character I hugely relate to.) Plus, personally I think that an INFP would question more if their actions are truly beneficial for those who they help, in other words, if they are universally just; Amelie seems to be more self-righteous and doesn't really question that at all (she seems to have her own justice). It's not like self-righteous INFPs don't exist, but in fiction, self-righteousness is typical for INFJs.

    Besides that, have you noticed the parallel between Amelie and the old man? I believe that he's an INTJ, and they basically have the same goal (Ni), but they use different means (Fe x Te) to reach it.

    Well, maybe I would be able to see the ENFJ, but certainly not the INFJ, for the simple reason that Elizabeth strikes me as a total extrovert. She even openly despises Mr Darcy for being so antisocal. Besides, if she was an INFJ, she would have to be the same type as Anne Elliot, and I'm afraid I fail to see any similarities besides both of them being clever. However, to be honest, I don't buy the ENFJ either. If she was an ENFJ, she would have to be Fe dominant, and I really don't think she's that in tune with community or even so concerned about others - the opposite is the truth most of the time, she is very independent and doesn't care much about following norms. She does have a certain 'Fe' personal charm, but that could very well be the Tertiary. (Every ENTP I know is an extremely charming person.) I don't even see her as an NF, to tell the truth - the thing she values the most about herself seems to be her independence and her keen wit, which is typical for ENTP women from what I've observed. Plus, most of her talks with Mr Darcy are heated intellectual discussions; she sees her NF sister Jane as a 'too kind' dreamer; her INTP father relates to her the best; and she's an almost polar opposite of her obnoxious ESFJ mother. All of this leaves me with an NT.

    As for your arguments, I'm not sure if I find them valid. firstly, I don't see that much self-discipline in Elizabeth at all, what I see first and foremost is pride and opinionatedness, and she doesn't really direct her intelligence anywhere, apart from enjoying her battles of wit. That doesn't exclude ENTP at all. Secondly, I do think that Elizabeth acts pretty impetuous and passionate from time to time. As for Marianne, I don't think she was punished for being a 'P' - I think she was punished for representing such an unstoppable and irrational 'sensibility', as opposed to Elinor's 'sense', which Austen definitely seems to favor. But Elizabeth is rational and intellectual, without being cold and insensitive.

    agreed again

    funny that you should mention it, one of my only friends is also an INTJ, and i can definitely see some parallels there as well

    I don't know if he's already been mentioned, but what about Paul from Frank Herbert's "Dune" series? Is he an INFJ? He seems like the epitome of INFJ, especially in the first book, but I think Herbert changed his character a bit later on in the series, and he seems like he might be more INTJ in Dune Messiah.

    There was a Dune movie from the 1970s or 80s, but I wouldn't rely too much on the character develop from that to type Paul. It was a complete joke.
