    Jim seems INTP to me with a slight inclination towards E. The way he toys with life in his mind in response to the inconsistencies. He also plays jokes at others expense which in his case is rather cute, but it also seems xTxP in that aspect. He doesn't seem Fi at all.

    Pam seems IxFx, but she does lack a certain self-awareness common to INFPs. She is mildly difficult to me to type. She doesn't strike me as an INFJ because she isn't very analytical or intuitive. She may be borderline on one or two functions. She could possibly be an ISFJ since that type sometimes enjoys a playful humor based on people acting outside their norms. She seems to follow whatever others expect of her. It's possible she is an N, but I would say an underdeveloped one. She takes Jim's lead in pretty much every intuitive interaction.

    Dwight is a definite xSTJ, although he seems kind of extroverted to me.

    Angela is an extreme ISTJ imo.

    Last week was funny when Michael asked Jim to go camping with him. Jim then told us that he always says yes to Michael no matter what it is and then declines because he's already made plans. Classic!

    Good analysis, I think you're onto something there.

    Dwight is a definite xSTJ, although he seems kind of extroverted to me.
    Another annoying character, although they all compliment one another as did the characters in Seinfeld and Friends which is why I think this show is successful over here (US) as well.

    Toonia are you a psychologist or in that line of work?

    Angela is an extreme ISTJ imo.
    Most definitely! She really annoys me.

    And what are your thoughts on Michael's type?

    I thought it was funny when Jim had Dwight thinking the computer was talking to him and consciously competing with him. It's also funny when Michael tries to formally institute some politically correct fad or notion.

    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    No It's not The Office, however I have to give them two thumbs up for finally taking a British show and not totally fucking it up. They had to remove most of the irony and sarcasm for the American audiences, but all in all it's very good! Coupling in the US failed miserably.

    UK Michael makes me cringe and wince way more than Steve Carrel. I like both Jims, but prefer the US one. Both Dwight's are blech, but they're supposed to be, and I prefer the US Pam.

    I would of said Jim was an ISTP, but I haven't watched the show much.

    FWIW, the tricks that he pulled were things I did way back when (before I became... responsible...). I didn't do the jello though - wish I had thought of that.
