    I was just concentrating on Sheldon. He's the tallest one, right? who was drinking the diet coke?

    It was interesting the way he answered when the gal came in and said she needed some guinea pigs. He took he literally and then proceeded to tell her where she could find some, and recommended a certain type. It seems like he remembers a lot of "trivial" information, in a very detailed way.

    Funny how he never smiles. Very serious.

    He seemed T when he was brutally honest.

    He seems very J. Well, apparently, he's got OCD - showers twice a day and washes his hands frequently.

    I wasn't sure if he was I or E. After he had some alcohol, he became more E.

    I think that because he seems to have such a great memory, not just in one or two subjects, I'm going to guess Sheldon is an ISTJ.

    I'm not entirely convinced. I think he still might be INTJ. He is very speculative and radical, always pondering new ideas, such as ideas for time travel, invisibility, marketing schemes (glow-in-the-dark tampons, fish night-lights), etc. Such doesn't really seem typical of ISTJ. Any type can have a good memory.

    And yes, Leonard seem either to be a shy ENTP or outgoing INTP.

    Definitely! My guess is ISTJs are more pedantic than INTJs and Sheldon certainly is pedantic.

    One other thing, IMHO almost all TV characters are E. A bunch of Introverts wouldn't be very interesting to watch. Anyway, my point is E vs. I is probably irrelavent when typing character from TV shows ...

    Perhaps not to themselves. However watching an introvert can't possibly be much fun???

    perhaps watching a person with no personality would be no fun, but introverts are still fun people. We aren't called introverts because we are boring and don't know how to have fun, we are called introverts because we need some space to ourselves to regain some energy. We are also introverted because we are typically introspective which leads to discussions of ideas and concepts...how can that be boring?

    Good point. What can I say? I have the attention span of a two year old. Depth isn't really my thing.

    Sheldon is definitely an ISTJ. See episode 7, season 1. That entire episode is dedicated to Sheldon's freaky rules about every possible aspect of his life.

    ISTJ = I will follow the rules.

    INTJ = I will make my own rules.

    Had to resuscitate this topic because I disagree with the other posters.

    Sheldon - INTJ. Autistic and possibly a savant. Very strong Te but definitely a Dom-Ni.
    Leonard - iNTP
    Attractive, blonde neighbour - ESFP

    Sheldon makes his own rules. It's not because of parental pressure or social expectancies, it's because of his own focused nature and long-range thinking.
    Though Si-dominants are more likely to have a good short-term memory, this does not exclude other types. He ruthlessly applies short-term planning because of his OCD, but has an ability and a willingness to think in grand schemes ('If all of us work on this project for 10 years, we might invent xy', I don't remember the correct quote), which makes it very unlikely that he's an ISTJ.

    Sheldon: INTJ
    Leonard: INTP
    Penny: ESFP
    Raj: INTP
    Leslie: INTJ
    Sheldon's mom: ESFJ
