    Spike I think is actually another ESFP. He loves fucking around with people, and he really shows nothing resembling Ti (but he does stalk Buffy, which is somewhat Fi-ish).

    while reading this post, i started to wonder about Illyria. of course, she has only been in six episodes (i think), so we don't know that much about her, but still, it would be interesting to try.

    someone on another forum suggested INTJ, but i wondered whether ISTJ could be an option. she does have quite a number of traits in common with other characters who are somewhat easier to pinpoint as ISTJ or ESTJ, such as Anya or Cordelia (forthcoming, blunt, inflexible, characterized by a cold/distant demeanor that could be interpreted as a defensive mechanism, literal-minded).

    what do you think?

    Illyria could be ITJ, I guess. Although she's kind of stubborn for an INTJ.

    Maybe not the right word.. INTJs are stubborn in a different way. They still propose their own ideas. She just pretty much shoots everything down and offers little in return. Maybe there are INTJs like that, but... I doubt they're INTJ too. Kind of makes for a shitty "mastermind" if you have nothing to offer.

    Some people type Ro Laren from Star Trek the same way.. an INTJ. But I don't see it, for the same reasons.

    i don't think i am familiar enough with the IxTJ types, yet, but judging by what i have learned, she doesn't seem exactly INTJ to me either. except the body language, which is stereotypically INTJ in some ways - but then that might be due to her being an alien (at least in essence) more than to her actual psychological type. perhaps any member of the species that multi-tentacled being belonged to would have used the same nonverbal signals if its soul were transferred into a human body.

    i was thinking what sense, if any, one could make of Illyria's behavior in the "Illyria: Haunted" series. the fact is, she still acted sufficiently in character, or at least i was able to recognize her as the illyria i knew from the show. i cannot say the same about some other jossverse characters that appeared in ATF or a few other series. but this was exactly why i found the series unsettling. they turned her into something very INFP-like and i didn't fully notice this until the final issue (to which i had a vastly inadequate reaction - it reads/appears like a shroom trip and i responded accordingly). that suspiciously familiar quest for her true self. or her preoccupation with being deficient or "not whole" because she isn't feeling something she believes she ought to feel, which, if possible, gave me an even greater feeling of a disturbing deja vu. and it could only be digested, more or less, if one supposes that her shadow self had taken over completely and swallowed her whole (if she is ISTJ), due to the stress of being stranded in a foreign, hostile environment and in a body that is not her own. or that fred had been INFP and her personality surfaced to a greater extent than it used to in the past, smothering illyria's.

    I haven't seen that..

    If she became INFP like, then yeah, maybe it's just Fred taking her over again I think she is either INFP or INTP at least.

    i think those graphic novels should be readily available for download in e-format. some of them they were difficult enough to find online, but that was right after they were released (character derailment can be a guilty pleasure of sorts, with a masochistic flavor - i knew i would be disgusted, but i couldn't resist all the same); by now they should be everywhere.

    just for the sake of curiosity, i used that odd automated writing style analyzer from the "what is your writing style?" post on illyria's dialogue from the seven episodes she was in (i had it in a separate file because i'd used it to illustrate illyria's speech patterns to a friend). it showed as being very obviously INFP, with heavy I, N, F and P leanings. i thought this was odd - and also not.

    Yea, we disagree on that. I've watched through the whole series twice. And those are my choices.....

    I watched the whole series too, and you are wrong.

    Faith has exaclty the same type than Amy Winehouse, they are very similar.
    Spike is very similar to the INTP 6w5 Sx/Sp Lou Reed as a ironic, tough and cynical punk poet, but he's more action oriented and loudmouth. He has not Fi as auxillary function in his cognitive process.
