    Man, I spent my entire personality class on Tuesday (we were studying Freud, so I zoned out) doing this. Here are my best guesses after seeing seasons one and two on DVD:

    Michael: ESTP
    Dwight: ENTJ
    Ryan: ISTJ
    Pam: ISFJ
    Jim:ENFP
    Angela: ISTJ
    Stanley: ISTJ
    Toby: INFJ
    Kevin: ISFP
    Oscar: ISFJ
    Phyllis: ???P
    Meredith: I???
    Jan: ESTJ

    Disclaimer: I am not judging that any of these characters are normal expressions of their supposed types. I am merely hypothesizing as to their original preferential make-up as displayed in this sitcom.

    I'd say Michael's an F- an ESFP, instead of ESTP. He's always looking for validation. Dwight as an ENTJ, spot on. I agree with the rest of your assessments.

    I'd say Phyllis is an xSFP. Have no idea about Meredith, except she's probably a T.

    The reason that I think Michael is an ESTP is because he has pronounced Fe, but I do not think that he is perceptive enough about other people's feelings in order to actually "be" a feeler.

    Someone explain how Dwight might be anything other than a (very stereotyped) NT, please!

    Based on his Wikipedia article, I think Dwight is an INTJ.

    Yes, and Carebear compared me to Gareth Keenan, who is Dwight's British equivalent, in this thread.

    Michael is definitely too sensitive to be a T. ESFP to the max! Which could explain his Fi function.

    I'd wager:

    Michael: ESFP
    Dwight: ESTJ
    Ryan: ESTJ
    Pam: INFp
    Jim:ENTP
    Angela: ISTJ

    Stanley: ISTP
    Toby: INFP
    Kevin: ISFP
    Oscar: ISTP
    Phyllis: ISFP
    Meredith: ISFJ
    Jan: ENTJ
    Andy: ESTP
    Karen: ENFP
    Ryan seems too reserved to be an E. I'd say he's an IxTJ.

    I don't think Kevin is an I either.

    Other than that I think I would have to agree.

    It failed miserably over here too, as a comedy. I find its success unfathomable.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.
