    Default Columbo and Magnum, P.I. types

    Just something I've been pondering today. what do you feel the types of these two tv detectives are?

    I'd say Magnum is probably STP and Lt. Columbo is definitely an NT

    Feel free to type any other fictional detectives you may want to throw in the mix.

    I think (book) Nero Wolfe is an INTJ.

    I love Columbo, but I don't know his type. Though I have kind of a thing for the squishier INTPs so he could be that.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Magnum is ESTP and Colombo may be ISFP (1000% IP)

    Hmmm, I'd definitely say Magnum is an INFP 2w3 and Colombo an ESTJ 4w5

    Also Hastings and Castle are ENFPs.

    I know, this thread is three years old, but I don't care. I thought this was interesting. According to Funky MBTI in Fiction, Columbo is an ENTP, but I thought he was an INTP.
    If anybody else happens upon this thread and sees my post here - What do you think?
