    Pooh is my favorite character.

    I think Piglet is ISXJ and Tigger is an EXFP. Just my impressions.

    what about eeyore?

    "N"? Did I read a different version of the book when I was a kid? In the version I read (the original Winnie the Pooh, by A.A. Milne, as well as The House at Pooh's Corner), the characters did not just sit around talking about abstract possibilities all the time. They were pretty tuned in to their environment. They didn't seem to me to exhibit traits of the Idealist/Catalyst temperament either.

    C'mon, people, I know that it's a popular pastime to think you see "iNtuition" everywhere, and that it's common to believe that people who have a few thoughtful insights or a healthy imagination must therefore prefer iNtuition, but .... seriously. What I see most people describing as iNtuition isn't what either Carl Jung or Isabel Myers meant by it.

    Not to start an argument or anything, but can anyone show me quotes by way of evidence that any of the characters except for Eeyore (who really did spend a lot of time by himself wondering "Why" and "Wherefore" and "Inasmuch as Which") seriously thought less about the people and things in their world than about abstract meaning and significance and about helping the other characters realize their inborn potential?

    If Pooh and Piglet spend all day building a house for Eeyore or worrying about what he might like as a birthday present, or looking for something that Tiggers like to eat, or playing with Baby Roo, or wondering if the presence of bees near a tree means they have a hive in it, or pretending to be a little cloud so as to fool the bees into thinking your'e not after their honey, or going on a walking "expotition" to the North Pole, or imagining monsters in the woods and going hunting for them, or even making up poetry that's mostly just harmonic use of language (see David Keirsey's explanation of the SP temperament - NF poetry is heavily metaphorical, SP poetry is harmonic), all of that's very, very concrete. Even making up fictitious monsters and naming them Woozles and Heffalumps and going "hunting" for them is about using your imagination concretely, not abstractly. If Piglet daydreams about heroically saving the day by exhibiting physical bravery, that's a concrete daydream about performing concrete actions at a soon-to-be concrete moment in time, not about envisioning what could become true in the far-off future.

    If you guys can point to specific paragraphs from the books to prove that those animals in fact spent most of their time pondering the nature of evil vs. good or devising abstract models that help explain human/animal behavior, I'll change my mind.

    Until then.. sorry, but I don't buy your type guesses.

    hahaha! I wondered what she meant by "she". As far as I'm aware, the only female animal of the bunch was Kanga (a stereotype of the Guardian temperament if there ever was one)...

    I hadn't thought about it but Sarah has some really good points. There's a lot of S in the whole show. Most definitely harmonic over idealist. Heh even their daydreams are concrete.

    Oh and I was thinking about Tigger more but instead of becomming more certain I became less certain lol...I think he could be a T...so my guess would be EXXP and not EXFP. Prolly ESXP.

    Eeyore is likely ISTJ but he may also be an INFP-they are very melancholy types.
