    Default Roald Dahl's characters

    I've reread a few of Dahl's children books, in search for extreme characters to use as examples.

    Matilda
    Matilda: INTJ
    Mr. Wormwood: ESTP
    Mrs. Wormwood: ESTJ
    Mrs. Honey: INFJ
    Mrs. Trunchbull: ENTJ

    George's marvellous medicine
    George: INTP
    Grandma: INFJ?
    Mr. Kranky: ENTP

    James and the giant peach
    James: I...?
    Ladybug: ISFJ
    Centipede: ENTP

    The BFG
    Sophie: ISFJ
    BFG: ENFP

    What do you think?

    I was thinking more this:

    Matilda
    Matilda: INTJ
    Mr. Wormwood: ESTP
    Mrs. Wormwood: ESFJ
    Mrs. Honey: INFP
    Mrs. Trunchbull: ENTJ

    James and the giant peach
    James: ISFP
    Ladybug: ISFJ
    Centipede: ENTP

    I'll come back for the other books.

    Mr. Fox ESTP - yeah, that seems to fit.

    Miss Honey INFP - I don't know. It's possible. I thought INFJ due to her love for teaching and counseling. She's a real mentor.

    Mrs. Wormwood a Feeler - I don't agree to that. She doesn't care for people, even not for her husband and children. She cares for the riches. She had this one goal in life: get rich. She knows the one and only way a woman should do this: be pretty and marry a rich man. Look eg. at the conversation between Mrs. Wormwood and Miss Honey. "Look at that actress. Now she's going to marry him and live in a big house with lots of servants". What's important? That the couple is together at last? Love? I don't think so.

    Hmmmm, I always thought matilda to be an INFJ instead of INTJ. She's doesn't seem much of a Te user at all.

    I see what you mean here too, but I'm not sure if she uses no Te. She does kind of seem like she has a plan behind all the craziness she goes through, even if it is not apparent all the time. It might be kind of off but INTJ seems like the best guess so far. It is hard because of her age.

    But INFJ would make her a Fe user... common values? Popularity? Caring about other's feelings? Matilda? Doesn't fit.
    There's a bit of Fi use; she's got a good chunk of personal values that don't correspond at all to the values she's got as examples... her parents aren't that much of a good example for common values, are they?
    And once she determined what she would like - getting a book, punishing her parents, finding some grown-up to tell about the telekinesis - she'll lose no time in trying to reach that goal. And then you'll see lots of Ni use and some Te too - "does this way of acting bring me closer to my goal?"
