    His goal is to control the situation (and one way he does this is by understanding it, but he wants to manage it and bring it to closure in the way he desires.)

    Compare to Locke who is probably INFP. Locke is an explorer of concepts (INP), he wants to understand the situation and he veers away from interfering in the workings of things if possible... it takes him a long to make decisions, and when he does, those decisions are dictated to him by the workings of the situation, he is merely playing a part in what already is unfolding, to create the outcome that the situation dictates. Ben (INJ) imposes his order over reality.

    I'm working on a blog post about typing the Lost characters, and I totally agree with your assessment!

    Ben INTJ - incisive, overconfident, always has a plan, a system builder, and personal relationships are not his forté (even though he cares deeply about a select few)
    Locke INFP - has a sense of wonder about the world, especially the Island. Constantly struggles with concepts of self-identity and purpose. Has strong awareness of others. Takes his time making decisions, and always has a lofty ideal in mind when doing so. He balances Jack in almost every way.
    Jack ESTJ - he's a classic ESTJ as far as I can see, makes decisions quickly, stubbornly sticks to his convictions (even when evidence to the contrary is staring him in the face), has disturbing outbursts of emotion
    Kate ISFP - She's impulsive, definitely a feeler but often keeps things to herself, until they burst out of her (kissing Jack, then running away). She is an idealist but is also a doer (like killing her dad to protect her mom) and she's also very physically inclined (tracking, hiking, climbing.)
    Sawyer ENTP - at first I thought for sure he was an ESTP because of the conman angle, but now I'm not sure he was in it for the thrills - I think maybe that was just his mode of survival. I can see a lot of NT in his thought processes. Definitely a P, and definitely an E.
    Rose ESFJ - Caretaker of everyone, outspoken, firm in her beliefs. Classic ESFJ.
    Daniel INTP - he's a very typical INTP.
    Miles ENTP - like an INTP, but the dude won't shut up
    Jin ISTJ - so motivated by duty it's almost comical
    Sun ISFJ - a nurturer, definitely an introvert, takes care of Jin even when she's planning to leave him.
    Ana Lucia ESTJ - she's pretty much a female Jack, but way more annoying
    Desmond INFP - dreamer, idealist, always searching for meaning and purpose but not always finishing what he sets out to do
    Claire INFJ - Claire has turned fairly one-dimensional (mommy all the time!) which makes her difficult to type, but this is my inclination

    Miles seems like an introvert to me, Id guess INTP. Most of his "not shutting up" isnt really socializing but bitterly pointing out the flaws of everyone elses actions.

    The only ones I am sure about are these two:
    Infj= Locke
    Intj= Ben

    It's really quite obvious when you look at the Ben/Locke relationship; even if they are not infj/intj, they are very similar in type with one or two letters being the only difference between them. They were both at polar opposites of the spectrum and Ben has convinced Locke to believe things, several times, it's clear that Ben doesn't believe those things himself. Locke is much more of a feeler who believes in fate and mysticism, who has feelings about things and acts on them. Ben plans things out, and strategically, not only gets people do what he wants, but can even convince others to do his bidding.

    I just need to say that Daniel Faraday is most absolutely an INFP.
    You can call me Charles.

    Jack is an ESFJ. I don't understand why everyone thinks he is a T. Also, I always thought Sawyer was an ISTP. He's a little more talkative than most, but he's very reclusive and doesn't have any role or interest in the islands society. All he does is hoard all of the treasures/weapons he finds so that he can take advantage of people.

    Bah, you fools are all wrong.

    Ben ESTJ
    Locke ENTJ
    Jack ENTJ (notice the ongoing tension with Locke)
    Kate ISTP
    Hurley ISFP
    Sayid ISTP
    Sawyer ESTP
    Claire ISFP
    Charlie ESFP
    Juliette ENFJ
    Sun INFJ (though she was ISFJ in the earlier episodes)
    Jin ISTJ
    Faraday INTP
    Miles ENTP
    Desmond INFJ
    Whidmore ENTJ
    Penny INFP
    Richard INFJ
    Charlotte INTJ
    Rose ESFJ

    I don't actually know who writes this show, but judging by the storylines and plot devices, I'd say some INTJ, ENTP, and ESTP are collaborating.
