    Gretchen is most definitely an INFJ though, not INFP. The way she dealt with Walter's lie about her and Elliot paying for his medical expenses was completely Ni/Fe. She didn't have a strict moral opinion on the general matter of dishonesty; she tried to dig deeper and figure out why Walter was lying and see things from his perspective. Fi would likely never do this; it would probably feel betrayed and ethically opposed to being an accomplice in Walter's dishonesty. Ni, on the other hand, is much more capable of seeing things in context and forming a judgment from there. She didn't take things personally, but rather, gave Walter the benefit of the doubt because she sympathized with his tough position and understood that there was a logical appeal to be made for his actions (Fe/Ti).

    Jane is INTP, not ISTP. An argument could even be made for her being ENTP. Either way, she clearly leads with Ne. The conversation she has with Jesse about the Georgia O'Keefe museum when she explains why O'Keefe drew a door over and over epitomizes Ne. Jane and her Ne, unlike Jesse and his Se, understands that a door can be creatively connected to a vast number of ideas, so only one painting of a door does not suffice.

    Tuco is ESTP to the max. His Se is just completely over the top, and he as no Ti to mold him into some rational, moral character. He is impulsive, aggressive, domineering, and thrives on intense action and the thrill of the moment (this explains his addiction to meth). The scene in the junkyard where Tuco, his minions, Jesse, and Walt make the deal does a really good job of exemplifying Tuco's type. When one of his minions makes the point to stand up for Tuco, Tuco is unreasonably insulted, and before even thinking, he follows his impulses to just beat the shit out of him (Se). He is insulted because his employee upset the social hierarchy of their little drug cartel (Fe). Tuco was the boss, so no one under him should do anything that implicitly undermines his authority. I will admit, however, that he is one crazy motherfucker.

    I have no opinion on Elliot's type. He seems to have some Fe going on, however, and I'm fairly certain there's Ni, so ENFJ might not be too far off.
    Tuco as ESTP makes sense. Gretchen as INFJ...maybe, but it's not like an INFP couldn't do what she did with that situation. Although an INFJ would more likely take that route than an INFP. Jane...I'll have to watch more episodes, I still think she's ISTP though, so far.

    Gale (season 3 - Walt's assistant) seems pretty clear INTP.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    I agree with Marie being ESFP. I originally had her pegged as ESTJ, but that's just because I saw A LOT of Te from her. She's just one of those ESFPs that relies more on Se/Te than Se/Fi (though weak, unhealthy Fi is still evident in how selfish and egocentric she is).
    Yeah, I think you're right about Skyler. I can see both S and N qualities in her, but ENFJ is more accurate.

    I do see a lot of Te in Marie, but I don't think that it's evident enough for it to be her Dominant function. She is definitely not a J, so ESTJ is out of the question. ESFP seems like a good fit. She could be ESTP, but I think she uses Fi more than Ti.

    Gus= definitely INTJ
    Jane's father= ISFJ? I haven't seen season 2 in a while. Someone else would probably have better insight here.

    And I'll take a stab at a couple of pretty hard to type characters, mostly due to lack of dialogue.

    The Brothers (season 3) = both ISTP
    Tuco's granddad (with the bell)= xNTJ (In this case, I think the X could just mean 'not applicable')

    Almost forgot about Mike, ESTJ?

    I agree about Jane being an INTP.

    I'll go along with:

    Walt: INTJ
    Skyler: ENFJ
    Walt Jr: INTP
    Hank: ESTP
    Jesse: ISFP
    Gale: INTP


    But Gus... I dunno. He uses that blank stare as a tool. It's overdone. It could just be that that's what a well socialised yet thoroughly anti-social INTJ looks like, but.... INFJ, anyone?

    People are saying season three is awesome? I don't understand. It takes Walt about the right amount of time to recognise that he's a bad man. But that's about it. He doesn't do what I kept expecting: either tear the whole structure down or tear everyone else down. (He doesn't even know he could just shoot Skyler and be free!)

    I think maybe one compelling part of the whole story is while Walt is smart enough, he does make the classic mistake of almost never using his constructive intelligence to examine himself. Did that happen or didn't it in season three? I guess that's the next transformation for him. It should be a doozy.
    Bellison uncorked a flood of horrible profanity, which, translated, meant, "This is extremely unusual."

    Walter kinda reminds me of my father, kinda sorta, so I was gonna say INTP.

    Why do you think that Walt Jr. is a T? I haven't seen Season 3 yet, but from what I've seen of him in S1 and S2, he seems like a Feeler. Did he change in S3, or have you always gotten a T vibe from him?

    I can see why you think that Jesse is an I, but he seems Se Dominant, not Fi Dominant. His Fi is strong, but not that strong.
