    plus you get Garth Williams's charming illustrations.



    It has been too long for me to attempt to type them, though.

    I'm pretty sure Laura's an extrovert.

    The books always have a better quality than the series/ movies... that's why I'm seaching so much for them where I live!

    I guess there's a difference in Laura's personality in the books and in the series.

    Sometimes I see her typed as ISFJ, other times as INFP... so I have my doubts.

    I personally see her more as an extrovert.

    I do remember having watched this show when I was younger...yet to say *totally love*....that would not necessarily describe my feelings for the series. I mean, I think I was somewhat interested merely because it was a show about 'another little girl'...but other than that I think I was fairly 'take-it-or-leave-it' with regards to Michael Landon's 'heavy on the Christianity/miracles' version of this tale.

    The actual books though...I was crazy for those ('totally loved'). I think I read the entire collection 2 or 3 times maybe (?) when I was around 8 - 10yo. <--- And then recently...I read a couple of these books again just to see what I would remember/what I would think of them...

    And what struck me the most this last time was..."Holy shit Pa was an EP e7!!!" Or I should say...Laura Ingalls Wilder's account of her father...however accurate or idealized or altered...the Pa from the books was a total EP e7...(I believe ESTP). I guess I was just surprised by this realization because as I child...I wasn't necessarily 'relating' to Pa...but now...it's now clear to me Pa & I have some 'similiar issues' haha.

    Also from the books...Ma seems like a classic ISTJ...and Laura herself ESFP...but I didn't put a great deal of thought into typing the characters. Just tripped-out on Pa.

    I understand your point, Starry. I agree with you about the Micheal Landon's version being 'heavy on the Christianity/miracles' (it's exaggerated very often), even without reading the books yet. I guess he also put a lot of his own personality on Pa, what makes him FJ-ish on the series (as long as I know, Landon was an INFJ), resembling a lot e1w2 too. I'm really curious to read the books and spot those differences.

    I can see Laura as an EFP type.

    Oh I love this show too! It's always been one of my favorites! Laura is definitely a hard one. She's my favorite character from this show, but her personality is so complex! If I were to guess, I'd say she's an ESTP. But at other times, she's an ISTJ. But most of the time, I'd say she's an ESTP. Grace was so young when the show ended, it's hard to identify a personality on a 3-year old girl. As for Carrie, she was one of the most underdeveloped characters on this show. I honestly have no idea what to call her personality.

    I agree. She was very impulsive and often did things without thinking. At times, she was more calm and introverted, but most of the time she was very extroverted.
