Has anyone else been watching this amazing show?
Mrs. Patmore - ESFJ
She's always grumpy. Reminds me so much of my mother. #homesick

My general ideas of types based on the first series:
Lord Robert: IxTJ (Kind of leaning towards INTJ at times and ISTJ at other times.)
Lady Cora: ESTJ
Dowager Countess: ESFJ
Anna: IxFx (I can't decide on her totally)
Breaking into Series 2 tonight

I love this show. The Dowager Countess is prolly one of the wittiest characters I've yet encountered and is played by such a magnificent actress; no one can deliver a line like Maggie Smith.
Lord Crawley - ISTJ (the Te tempered by age and maturity)
Lady Crawley - ESFJ
The Dowager Countess - ESTJ (and taps into her Ne so delightfully, when throwing out her one-liners)
Matthew Crawley - INTP
Lady Mary - INTP
Lady Edith - ISTJ
Lady Sybil - ENFP
Mrs Crawley - ESTP
Carson - ISTJ
Mrs. Hughes - ISTJ
Mrs. Patmore - ESTJ
Bates - InFJ
O'Brien - ESTP/ENTJ ?
Thomas - INTJ
Anna - ENFP
William - ISFP
Daisy - ESFP

I was hesitating between ENTP and ENFJ for Isobel. I could go either way. She seems caring but at the same time is very matter of fact and not interested in wallowing in emotions. Whatever she is, I liked her loads.
O'brien: yes I was sort of wavering between the two since she seems very Se/Te. I have just started season 2 (watched first two episodes of season 2 last night after posting here, and got a much better read on her than my initial one.)

It surprises me that people are seeing O’Brien as anything other than Je dom, or at least aux. Pe dom or aux types generally don’t have as much trouble letting things go, and it’s like the woman lives and breathes to ‘keep score’ of things. And I think it’s Ni sensitivity/paranoia/tunnel vision that makes her so sensitive/keen to the different kinds of respect going on around her (she’s sensitive to how arbitrary it is, that it’s a matter of being born into a certain class rather than based on the actual person…..and when she feels disrespected, it’s like it explodes into a whole bigger thing about that unfairness)- and makes her so bitter and vindictive. I don’t think Pe types (dom/aux) get SO nonplussed over the same kinds of things, or that the anger has as much staying power as it does with her- they can live more for the moment. I don't see her as living for the moment *at all*. It's all about the scales of justice in her head constantly being checked- based on her cumulative experience of a person- and manipulating the external environment to make sure people get what she believes should be coming to them.
I see ENFJness over ENTJness, and ENJness over INJness- but she seems so NJ to me that it’s kinda stifling.

What you say makes a ton of sense and I agree with your assessment.

I've just gotten into this show recently myself, and I'm almost done with the second season. Thomas and O'Brien are difficult for me to watch, because they keep making such crappy choices- the way they're written makes their underlying motivations understandable somewhat (in that Shakespearean 'no one is bad for no reason' kind of way), so I feel bad for them, but they're so cruel! They just seem to embody NJness gone wrong so well to me (and I say this acknowledging there might be a little bit of Pi tunnel vision on my own part in perceiving it that way ). It's just that their focus is so singular at times- on leveling out past injustices they've felt, and the contrast of some 'ideal' that'll never come to fruition lingering like a bubble around their heads- instead of what's directly going on around them. *Je + Ni*.
