    Default The Giver

    Easily one my favorite books, though I haven't read it in a while.

    What types do you the main characters are?

    Jonas
    Asher [His best friend]
    Fiona [His crush]
    The Giver
    Jonas's parents
    Jonas's sister
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    "Fools who wear their hearts proudly on their sleeves,
    who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad
    memories and allow themselves to be provoked this
    easily -- weak people, in other words -- they stand no chance."
    -Severus Snape

    It's been years since I've read the book, but I would type the Giver as INFJ. The whole theme of the book (transferring unseen information from one generation to the next) sounds extremely Ni Fe.

    The Giver = INFJ

    Asher = ESFP

    Hmm, I'm gonna have to think about the others....

    I really loved this book (kind of Brave New World lite), but I don't remember most of the characters themselves being especially complex. Also, aren't the "normal" (i.e., not the Giver and Jonas) characters probably intentionally undeveloped as to emphasize the "sameness" across people in their culture?

    The Giver as INFJ seems right, almost to the point of cliche (INFJs as "mystics" and all that). Wouldn't that likely make Jonas INFJ as well?
