    Default Types of The Giver characters?

    For those of you who have read the book The Giver by Lois Lowry, what do you think these characters should be typed as?

    Jonas
    The Giver
    Asher
    Fiona
    Jonas's Mom
    Jonas's Dad
    Lily

    Here are my guesses, but you can contribute your own ideas.

    Jonas- ENFx

    The Giver - xNFx. When I picture the ability to see beyond, I picture iNtuition.

    Asher - ESxP. Loud, spontaneous, doesn't like others getting in his way, likes attention .

    Fiona - xSFx. Warm-hearted, sweet, probably a sensing feeler.

    Mom - ISTJ

    Dad - ISFx? Very kind and loving, quiet.

    Lily - ESTJ? Kinda hard to tell because she's just a little kid, but she seems to speak her mind and value justice and hard work.

    This is my favorite YA novel ever, but it's been a very long time since I've read it.

    I'm tentatively guessing:
    Jonas - xNFP
    The Giver - xNFJ

    I just re-read this one, it's one of my favorites!

    Jonas- INFP, possibly ENFP, but the way he experiences and comprehends the memories is very Fi - Si

    The Giver - XNFJ At first I thought INFJ, but now I think he's more ENFJ

    Asher - ESXP. Leaning toward ESFP

    Fiona - ISFJ

    Mom - ISTJ

    Dad - ISFJ

    Lily - I thought she seemed kind of like an ENFP, but if not that, then definitely ESTJ.

    Rosemary - INFJ?

    I saw the film adaptation, which is incredibly bland. It is the book much better?

    Yeah. I didn't even bother to see the movie, I sort of knew they'd mess something up .

    Way way better. They took a beautiful story and tried too hard to focus on building and breaking the dystopian society and making it in line with current events. For example, in the movie Asher gets the job of "Drone Pilot", in the book, "Director of Recreation"...

    Fiona: ISFJ

    It's hard to type Jonas but he's definitely a feeler and yeah, the Giver is INFJ.
    I am extremely quiet, an outcast, and conflict-avoidant. But I also have strengths too, that I can forgive you all because you are unique and special. I kill with kindness, hating violence and social conflicts. People always bully me into actually talking, but I can't. Just be your true self and know your strengths and weaknesses. Some weaknesses we cannot change, but work on your strengths, forgive, and accept that.

    Don't you think Jonas would be the same type as the giver, since he was going to be the next giver?
