    If you base it on that we're all doomed at some point

    oh I'm not generalizing here, I just have a particular idea of ENTPs

    I'm not familiar enough with the show yet to have much of an opinion, but I do want to note a couple of things about blizzy's analysis of the exchange on the stairs (which incidentally I haven't seen so I'm going by the quotes):

    Focusing on specific, unlikely, negative, possible future scenarios to worry about is more unhealthy use of (perhaps inferior) Ne than it is healthy use of dominant Ni.

    The tertiary function (ie. "eternal child" or "function of validation") for an INTJ is Fi. This is a great example of Sheldon's eternal child coming out to validate his stance through maintenance of inner harmony.
    It looks more like Si to me - popcorn at the movies is an iconic association set up by past experience and tradition, and Sheldon is nigh incapable of conceiving of going to the movies without getting popcorn because of this.

    Although, Fi is also ISTJ's tertiary function, so yeah...

    I don't know whether Sheldon's closer to ISTJ or INTJ, but I do think the exchange here is certainly consistent with either possibility.

    Yay - A show with INTJ's as main character

    Sheldon is definitely an INTJ. Not S...
    I agree with Penny being ESFP
    Not sure about Leonard... xNTP

    As for the ENTP comments... ENTP's are passive and timid. One of my buddies is a strong ENTP. I can't believe some of the misconceptions of the ENTP type on here. I'm guessing many of you don't know any ENTP's.

    Sheldon: INTJ
    Leonard: xNTP (I initially thought INTP, too, but I could see ENTP)
    Penny: ESFx (I've been thinking of her as an ESFJ, but I can also see ESFP)
    Raj: INTP
    Wolowitz: ESTJ
    Sheldon's Mother: ESFJ

    I humbly suggest, by the way, that Leonard is an NF. Think about it. No, really, think about it. Consider his responses to characters, his approach to life, love and friendship.

    I vote either ENFJ or INFP- Fe Ni or Fi Ne respectively.

    That said, the characters aren't always consistent with themselves. Sometimes Leonard behaves like an introvert, sometimes like an extrovert- sometimes Sheldon's more like an S-type, sometimes more like an N-type- they just play up whatever side of the character that they need to for comic effect.

    Wolowitz is an ESTP, much like The Rock, Duke Nukem or Johnny Bravo.

    agree with absolutely everything. i thought leonard to be enfp with T developed through his work with science and his association with sheldon and the jewish dude

    sheldon...he insists he is not crazy cuz his mom had him tested. he is not exactly a new idea kind of a guy. he is more of a build on existing stuff using existing stuff kind of a guy

    i like rajesh..hes the best character on the show...doing his own thing

    Leonard is not a Feeler. And he definitely doesn't have Fi.

    Ti is much much much more concerned with logical consistency and accuracy than acheiving moral perfection, like that of Fi. That however isn't to say that Feelers can't be logical or successful physicists. But, to have a natural affinity for and be more concerned with logical accuracy is much more of a Thinker trait, particularly Ti. From what I've observed about the character (although admittedly it's pretty difficult to type television characters at all) Leonard has a lack of Fe, which can sometimes confused with the total absence of Fe, or Fi, because the behavior can appear similarly. To me Leonard seems to merely lack Fe. Further, a Fi dom/aux would be much more adapt to understand the interactions of and cooperate with people and take more interest in who a person is and what he is about because of a natural interest we take in people. Most of our ideas are people-based. Leonard on the other hand is absolutely clueless about people, interpersonal relationships, and social expectation. He knows some of the rules of social convention and adheres to those, but the rest is usually what makes the show so hilarious since those rules seem so obvious to us the viewers. I'm just having a hard time seeing Fi anywhere near that character('s dominant and aux function).

    But... who knows? You could be right.

    @Visa - I would agree with you that Wolowitz is, or could be, an ESTP. I couldn't decide if he had Si or Se and then just gave up and finally picked one, but I think you may be right with the ESTP typing. I have a hard time with the P and J disparity sometimes.
