    Default Let's type Hamlet!

    I've been reading Hamlet in my English class. At the beginning of the story I had him pegged as an XXFX, but after further reading I'm pretty convinced he is a XXTX. Has anyone ever typed Hamlet before, or anyother characters in the play?

    Well, some people made an attempt here...

    The problem with typing characters in plays is that it very much depends on how the character is acted. Otherwise, all you have is just their words.

    DEFINITELY an INFP in the original piece.
    Perhaps INTJ in R&G.

    I've always thought of him as INTP. I think we all agree on I and N.

    He's very analytical, but he's always refining his plan and drawing new connections between different events. So he overthinks and doesn't get anything done. I think an INFP would be more in control of their internal principles and feelings; Hamlet jumps all over the place.

    Isn't fencing a very INTP sport, too?

    Lol.
    INP is pretty clear. If anybody tells me that Hamlet is judgemental and is able to decide quickly, he/she is either blind or illiterate.

    I know several INTPs who like to fence, so it must have a strong strategy component. More T than F in any case.

    Hamlet is judgmental at times, the way he judges his mother for her remarriage, for example. But overall, he's not really a J.
