    Default Typing Squidward, Spongebob, Patrick?

    These descriptions are taken from Wikipedia.

    Squidward Q. Tentacles (Rodger Bumpass) is SpongeBob and Patrick's effete cephalopod neighbor. Squidward has been referred to as a squid by the series creators, but he referred himself as an octopus once. He lives in a house shaped like an Easter Island Head. He loves art, and makes every one of his artworks have the subject of himself. He works as a cashier at the Krusty Krab, a job he dislikes. SpongeBob and Patrick consider Squidward their friend, but the feeling is, by far, not mutual.

    SpongeBob SquarePants (Tom Kenny) is the title character of the series. He is an optimistic, energetic, lively sea sponge who physically resembles an artificial, kitchen-type sponge and lives in a pineapple-shaped house. He is often shown in the series working at The Krusty Krab as a fry cook. SpongeBob's hobbies in the show include practicing karate with Sandy, catching jellyfish and blowing intricate bubbles. He attends Mrs. Puff's Boating School, but has never passed; his lack of a driver's license serves as a running gag throughout the series.

    Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke) is a pink, lazy, overweight, and dimwitted seastar who is SpongeBob's best friend. He lives under a hinged barnacle and his most prominent character trait is his low intelligence. Depicted as a negative influence on SpongeBob, he encourages dangerous and foolish activities that get the two into trouble. While typically unemployed throughout the course of the series, Patrick holds various short-term jobs as the storyline of each episode requires.

    It should also be noted that some people believe that Patrick is, at least mildly, autistic.

    Was Patrick's sp/sp a typo, or is there something I don't know about Instinctuals?

    Squidward as type 3w4, he is fairly narcissistic and self-absorbed, isn't he.

    Spongebob: very unusual character... I can see where ENFP is coming from, but at the moment I'm seeing him as an ESFJ/ENTP hybrid (very strong Fe/Ne loop), can't decide which. He's also a pretty clear 6w7

    Patrick: probably ISFP, maybe ESFP. Also clearly 9w8. Not so much to go off of though.

    Squidward: INTJ, though I could see ISTJ as well. He's super aloof and in his head though, not down to earth in the slightest. And he's an obvious 3w4

    Also worth noting: Sandy is an excellent example of an ESTP 7w8, a scientist/inventor squirrel one at that

    Yes and no on ESFJ/ENTP hybrid. Spongey is a playful extraverted sponge continually seeking out external possibilities for fun. Sure he can play other roles, he can be more serious at work. And perhaps his sympathetic side makes him seem Fe, thus E(X)FJ. But in many cases, such as this one, I have to toss aside MBTI one-size-fits-all formulas, as is my wont, and say, "This character is adaptable not only in shape but in personality - therefore, he is P all the way down." Thus he can appear as a J by adapting cognitively to various conditions which pop up in his cartoon reality, and that's not a trait we can pigeonhole.

    "Inventor" seems more ENTP to me, Sandy trades off between Se and Ne. Her anger issues with Spongey show a more controlling side, however. And her depressive side takes on an introverted, withdrawn aspect. She is not sad when someone gets hurt physically or emotionally during one of her extreme physical adventures (just rub some sand in it and keep going!), nor is she disappointed for very long by any negative outcomes. Sandy's weakness is in the emotional realm. Breaking off a romance is very devastating for her.

    There's no way Spongebob is tert Fe; he's far to softhearted, super nice, giggly, let's all be freinds, to be dome or aux T at all. As for where he derives his sense of morals, I'm not entirely sure, although at times he seems to be great at generating harmony among his friends, yet in many other instances he's childish and unknowling annoys others with his over freindlyness (case in point: the episode where he goes into the dreams of others). ENFP or ESFP could work for him, as I do see tert Te with his super ability to stay organized and actually get shit done, fueled by his contagious enthusiasm and dedication to whatever he works on, whether it be job, boating school etc. Although I wouldn't rule out ESFJ or ENFJ either; basically he's an ExFx 7w6.

    Patrick seems more ISFP; in the moment, mostly not working but rather just watching TV or playing with Spongebob, I don't see much in the way of Te fo him. I think enneagram 9w8 fits him fairly well.

    Squidward seems ISTJ to me, although I'd be inclined to consider INTJ is someone could show proof of Ni over Si. Agrre on 3w4 for him.

    Sandy seemd like she could be ESTP or ENTP, not sure on the enneagram.

    Mr. Krabs is an ENTJ

    Plankton is either ENTJ or INTJ

    I agree that Spongebob does seem more ExxP than ExxJ. I think a lot of what makes him seem sort of J is that he is a type 6. There is a persistent fearful/loyalness to him that leads to a lot of order and obsessiveness. This might also make him look more Fe-influenced than he actually is, while the instances that display an Ne-dominant attitude are kind of more obvious

    Well that was sort of the point here. She is indeed a scientist and inventor by profession, but she is not quite the ENTP mad scientist/inventor archetype. Those characters tend to be more enthusiastic or whimsical but not quite "all there", whereas Sandy is more grounded and in-control, puts a lot of emphasis on facts and empiricism, and knows how to live in the moment. She has a lot of enthusiasm for science and invention, but tends to lose that part of her when something doesn't go according to plan or when she cannot make her inventions practical in an immediate way. She seems almost ENTJ except that she has a strong ExxPness to her, which is also part of why I go with ESTP. I do see a little bit of Se/Ne gray area, like in the karate scenes, though that could just be Spongebob rubbing off on her


    (And yes, I've watched this show far too many times....)

    Yes I am very reluctant to peg the Spongebob as ENTP or any sort of T..... functionally it kind of works, but even as a cartoon character it's hard for me to buy tertiary Fe as being that pervasively friendly and expressive. Maybe he is ENFP and his Fi looks sort of Fe-ish at times through how extemely outgoing he is. I still think he is mainly a type 6 with some strong 7 tendencies towards "fun" but he is rather close.

    Oh, and I would like to add that Gary is an obvious INTP

    That's a relief. But now I want to ask the general audience, what distinguishes the 3w4 from the 4w3 that makes Squidward's e-type so non-controversial?
