    Anyone watch this? Nucky seems INFJ, but INTJ could work here too.
    Jimmy more ISTx.
    Margaret maybe an INFP?
    Richard Harrow (guy with the fake face) INTP.

    There's a lot of Is here, but there's a theme of people not letting others in, so it isn't exactly flattering.

    I just started watching this and I really like it. I like Margaret as an infp ( if only because that could explain why I felt an instant connection with her).

    I might go ENFJ for Chalky, actually.

    In our variety of marathons this weekend, @mmhmm and I just got through season 1, and I think this show is fantastic. Consistently infuriating characters that keep me hooked, the stories are introduced and resolved quickly to keep the pace of the show speedy and entertaining, the steady drip of new characters are all closely interwoven into those stories so it remains focused, and Kelly Macdonald's clinical Irish accent I find oddly fascinating to listen to.

    As to the types:

    Nucky Thompson: eNTJ 8w9. Leads with Te, however experiences a considerable amount of struggle with internal values, which he assuages with "taking care of" others materialistically. Nucky's dilemmas are always Te/Fi. Charisma is completely mechanical and often underestimates his action's emotional impacts.

    Eli Thompson: ESFJ 3w2.

    Jimmy Darmody: ISFP 3w4. Really intent on self-actualizing, carving a luxurious yet meaningful place for himself in the world.

    Al Capone: ESFP 3w2

    Nelson Van Alden: ISFJ 6w5. Super investigator, with clear division of good/evil with no grey area. Wonderfully played by Shannon.

    Chalky White: ESTJ 8w7. Complete badass, as one would expect from Omar.

    Margaret Schroeder: INFP 9w1

    I'm far less confident in the enneagram types than the MBTI ones but, as always, I'm open to new information and being proven wrong.

    O Margaret, you silly girl...

    The finale was a little hasty but good.

    This surprises me. I'd almost guess INFP now. Silent suffering, strong suicidal tendencies, longing, and a need for loyalty and connection have defined the character this season. Why would you go ISTJ?
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Because his most prominent features are loyalty and precision. Are silent suffering and suicidal tendencies so out if place for someone who has fallen out of society due to what he has experienced in the war? His face makes him an outcast, so he holds on to the only community he has left: Jimmy (and Angela). He left his family because things could not be the same again. He was changed. Now he has a picture-book paper family instead. An INFP could do all those things, too, it just was not my impression.

    I agree with most of these, except nucky comes off slightly more eNTJ to me.

    The scene that felt most out of character was when he asked Rothstein (he's one of my favorites) what he would do.
