    Default Toy Story 3

    Like most Pixar movies, the main characters were very well-developed.

    Woody: ENFJ
    Buzz Lightyear: ISTJ
    Jessie: ESFP
    Lotso: ENTJ
    Mr. Potato Head: ESTP
    Mrs. Potato Head: ESFJ
    Rex: ISFP
    Hamm: ENTP
    Slinky Dog: ISFJ
    Barbie: ESFJ
    Ken: ESFJ
    Andy: INFP

    If anyone has any questions, let me know and I'll present my analysis. I thought a lot about all of them.

    Part of me wonders if Lotso is a deeply disillusioned and angry F.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Me too.
    He reminds me of the stereotypical cult leader type...which is I think ENFJ?

    ESFJ would be my second guess. Woody is clearly Fe-dominant. However, Woody seems to trust his intuition a lot. He's willing to take risks to do what he thinks is right.. not that an ESFJ wouldn't do this too but this is more NF-behavior. He considers Andy as an ideal of what is good for toys and was unable to compromise his beliefs at all in the third movie.

    I've thought about ENFJ for Lotso too but he didn't rule Sunnyside as a cult leader. He was more like a prison warden. He didn't really use any Fe to get others on his side. He lied to Big Baby and Chuckles to get them on his side- if what he said was true, the other toys would have similar reasons to be disappointed as he was. Most of the other toys, he seemed to simply intimidate into obeying him or manipulating them in some way.. this, I think, shows more Te than Fe. No toy was particularly disappointed when Lotso was gone- if he was a ENFJ who strongly appealed to others' emotions, I think at least one toy would have been saddened by his departure.

    Well, that is if he had healthier Fe.
    Fe as a very demanding state where a person becomes very insistent about how things should be, intolerant of groups, creates a very us vs. them attitude, prejudices, and labeling. Unhealthy Fe can also take the form of being aggressively dogmatic.
    Although Lotso doesn't necessarily go that far (it's a Pixar movie) I see him forming a me vs. everyone else attitude after being abandoned. I found him to also be very manipulative (unhelathy ENFJ trait).

    But I can see the T in him also. I just felt like arguing against it

    Lotso actually seemed sort dogmatic to me. He repeated his sort of toy version of militant nihilism over and over again in some form or the other, usually very emotionally and forcefully ('we're just trash', 'where's your kid now', etc). When he had his big "we're all just trash" speech, even years after the incident, he seemed to me to have a lot of pain in his voice. He probably engendered a similar opinion in most of the other 'evil' Sunnyside toys (many of whom were recently abandoned themselves and looking for an explanation) and emotionally manipulated them into latching onto the beliefs he held himself. After all, without his influence, the others seemed to be able to shed their cruelty and apparently whatever sort of thinking caused it. Before he left, however, none of the other toys seemed to be morally unsure of what they were doing.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    That's all true. I can see the argument for very unhealthy Fe but all of this can be explained by Te. It's not like Thinkers are devoid of emotions. He also seemed motivated by a desire to have power over others. The "traumatic experience" left him powerless and he found a way to gain some kind of power back. I could see the argument for ENFJ but I think ENTJ is more likely, especially given the ending and other things which happened in the movie.
    For instance, he wasn't able to convince Buzz that he was just "trash" now. Lotso had to find another way to get Buzz on his side- one which didn't require Fe at all but Te (or even Ti..). With that said, I can see ENTJ or ENFJ.
    Of course, Pixar couldn't make the villain seem too sympathetic- Lotso had his chance to redeem himself in the eyes of the other toys but instead he chose to be as cruel as ever. He was more focused on his survival than on trying to get over the fact he was "trash".

    how do you guys get ISTJ for Buzz? He seems so extroverted and albeit delusional but brave and ready for action. Aren't ISTJ's the ultimate example of forethought, planning and control? ISTJs don't seem risky enough for Buzz and a groundedness in Si facts seems to be exactly the thing he's lacking.

    Could he be ESTJ? Te promoting a hardheaded confidence in everything he does despite others' uneasiness with his "heroic" actions, and skipping Si to a weak tertiary Ne providing abstract delusionary ideas of heroicism. I've found that perpetually dysfunctional characters rely too heavily on their third trait, such as overly extroverted or overly introverted making it difficult for them to perceive reality outside of their own perspective, either making it difficult for them think through their actions (extroverts) or interact successfully with others (introverts).
