    Here's what I think about the four girls themselves.
    The show worked out that there were
    2 Extraverts/2 Introverts (Carrie & Samantha/Miranda & Charlotte)
    2 Sensors/2 iNtuitives (Charlotte & Samantha/Carrie & Miranda)
    2 Thinkers/2 Feelers (Miranda & Samantha/ Carrie & Charlotte)
    2 Judgers/ 2 Perceivers (Miranda & Charlotte/ Carrie & Samantha)

    Obviously they didn't do this deliberately, lol.. just found it interesting as I was typing them.

    So basically
    Carrie: ENFP
    Miranda: INTJ
    Samantha: ESTP
    Charlotte: ISFJ

    Makes sense to me.

    Yep, that makes alot of sense.

    They are pretty clear-cut representatives of those types I think.

    I've thought about their types (it's hardly an intellectual show) and have no idea but I don't see Carrie as an INFJ, although when I was young (younger than these girls) I did my fair share of clubbing. I'm from a big city, not as big as NY but still what else is there to do in the city when you're young and single but go out?

    I'll go with most of Eileen's choices.

    Ivy we're still going to see this movie together right? Anyone else wanna see it with us?
    Um, sha? Duh.

    I agree with this although I am not sure if Charlotte is an E or I. In general I've noticed a lot of successful sitcoms revolve around four characters with very different personalities: I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, Seinfeld, The Simpsons, etc....

    Carrie is not INFJ in my opinion. INFJ would have been more astute about Aiden!

    That was the point in which I quit watching the show. If the characters are going to dump decent guys and chase a-holes who cares about their troubles...lol.

    They do have the Carrie character do a lot of things that are clearly bad decisions from a mile away, and make these decisions in the same type of way over and over. Fortunately the rest of the show can make up for it, and I can pick and choose shows to avoid the most likely problem ones.
    Good writing can create drama without stretching things so far that the suspension of disbelief is broken. It became shtick.

    I know, but this seems like on case where the writers consistently goof up in the show. (Inter show politics may have a part to do with it, as Carrie seems to get sent through different types of challenges/situations as the other characters do.)


    For anyone interested, here's my personal theory on how the characters ended up the way they did.

    The writers start off with four big personality archetypes: Charlotte=traditional female, Samantha=the no strings sex character, Miranda=Independent career and logic person, Carrie= feelings person, perhaps meant to be the most "average" one.

    The writers apparently wanted the characters to act more "feminine" though, and there's the typical need to "humanize" people, so Miranda got several story arcs thrown in to show that she does have those feeling associated qualities, while Carrie and Charlotte were given more story arcs to fit emotional stereotypes. This also adds some drama to the Miranda story arcs of having to face up to and use weaker parts of her personality.

    Since the show is called "Sex and the City", and has all the other characters having lots of sex with different people, Charlotte ended up having to have the traditional views on sex reduced a bit, and again lots of drama/fun on the show comes from throwing her into situations where the "fariry-tale romance" ideas she has don't work (as well as other plans she has for herself along those lines). Charlotte also seemed to be written with a more flexible lifestyle outside relationships as the show went on, possibly related to how the character needed ot get more flexible with relationships and sex.

    Samantha's views on sex and relationships pretty easily set up interesting situations to throw her into.

    It is less obvious, though, how interesting situations could be set up for handling Carrie's personality, and the writers seemed to fall back often on using the same sort of relationship issues over and over again, and did not think of a way to have the character grow and learn while still having interesting situations.

    They are making a second movie... Don't know how I feel about that yet.

    Big: ENTJ
    Miranda: INTJ
    Charlotte: ISFJ
    Samantha: ESTP
    Carrie: I feel like she is the most difficult one. Why does everyone see NF for her? Out of all of the NFs I would probably have to say ENFJ but she also reminds me of an ISFP I know so I am a bit perplexed. I do not think any of the other NF types could fit her other than ENFJ.
    Aiden: ISFP

    I'd say Carrie is an ISFP!!

    She doesn't strike me as a J at all, she's always relaxed, coming late everywhere, and I think she shows Se and Fi alot.

    Miranda: INTJ
    Samantha: ESTJ
    Charlotte: ESFJ

    I think Carrie analyzes too much too be an SP. Her writing is trying to see every angle to relationships, deconstructs them to understand them, and makes unrelated connections through metaphor to explain them. All of that says intuitive to me. NFs can be artists and love offbeat beauty, so that explains the fashion. So I think eNFP. I think she is an extrovert, just a low one. I agree that she shows clear signs of Fi.

    I think Miranda is ISTJ, not INTJ. ISTJ women seem to have that conflict of wanting to be traditional, but being thinking women, not fitting the traditional woman's role very well and then resenting it. Miranda seems to have that struggle.
