Aw no worries. I've only seen the anime too. I've just noticed that we have people of varying opinions and I can't help but wonder if we could attribute it to the fact that some have only seen the anime; Mikasa's character is quite subdued, so it behooves me to seek more information about her inner-dialogue before coming to a comfortable conclusion.

I wonder though if not for her fighting skils/stratergic skils whether your opinions would remain the same. And i wonder if the character develops a bit more whether dhe would change a bit?
But for now istj it is for mikasa.
Anyone wanna give a shot at Reiner? I see him as ENFJ but I want other peoples' input. Preferably by someone who's reading the manga.
He just has a loooot of development in the manga, whereas he makes like 5 appearances in the anime. In fact, the anime ends right before his and a few others'
heartbreaking story/character arc begins. And let me tell you, anime-only fans, that is one hell of a fucking arc.
people who expect a change
who can't throw away their humanity
who stay idle in growth
who won't dirty their hands
those are the most terrifying of monsters
under a groove
Okay, I'm gonna give the Full Metal Panic series a shot after watching the original, then Fumoffu, then The Second Raid, and THEN reading the final light novel Always Stand By Me for intense Sousuke/Chidori shipping feelings.
Full Metal Panic
Sousuke Sagara - ISTJ 1w9>6w5>2w1 sp/so
Chidori Kaname - ENFJ 6w7>2w3>8w7 so/sx
Kurz Weber - ESFP 7w6>3w2>9w8 so/sx
Melissa Mao - ESTP 6w7>8w7>3w4 sx/so
Tessa Testarossa - INFJ 9w1>2w1>6w7 so/sx
Gauron - ENTJ 8w7>7w8>3w4 sx/so
What makes you say F over T?

The mother, on the other hand, serves no purpose but to antagonize and coerce Lain.
Having said this, if Lain were INTP then the ESFJ sister would play a much more antagonistic role; instead, she's looked on as the victim. But INFPs and ESFJs can get along very well, or so I have read. I get the feeling that the show is trying to show that Lain and her sister are both made of the "same stuff:" they would both be feelers, and Lain's sister would be a victim of imprisonment in reality, as with most of humanity, with her one redeeming quality being her understanding of emotion, her only real common ground with Lain. They're both feelers, so her loss is a tragedy, whereas something like this happening to her mother, we'd just say "Good riddance you jerk."
You do raise a good point in that a lot of the show's dialect is presented more in logical statements than feelings.
I did watch the show, actually. It's pretty awesome. I could honestly see Lain being either, but I'd lean more towards INTP. Besides, an INTP has the same functions (I guess, if you subscribe to cognitive functions) as an ESFJ only in reverse, so that could be a source of common ground in the sense that it's there, but it's hidden and needs to be coaxed out. I also wouldn't imagine that any given INFP would necessarily get along with an ESFJ better than an INTP would. That seems too dubious to me to use as a basis of your reasoning. I'd think that any healthy person of a given type will typically get along well with another healthy person of another given type. I'd imagine that most of what you read about Type A getting/not getting along with Type B is mostly anecdotal, which doesn't discredit it as evidence necessarily, but of course, take it with a proverbial molecule of NaCl.

I wanted to give this a BUMP after re-evaluating Asuna's type and coming across a few of Chanay's input in various threads about it as well. :P

Anyways, I'm still rather stuck, but leaning more towards ESFJ now. She still seems viewed as more traditional and based on social order and being sociable. Odd how other threads, female INFJ view her as INFJ. In SAO, they fight for the same cause, but walk a different path which makes them almost rivals, yet Kirito is always there to help her out as she puts herself more out there than himself and often because she does, she gets into problems. Asuna works with a system and what may seem practical to her and everyone else. Kirito sees things differently and typically works alone against the established system. Sees the flaws. Relates to this link as well http://www.preludecharacteranalysis....s/esfj/vs/infj
