I watched some episodes on Youtube this weekend. Here's my impression of all of the characters I can attempt to type:
Daria - INTP (although she seems to have more Fi than Fe, but overall it makes most sense)
Jane Lane - ISTP, or ISFP
Trent - ISxP
Quinn - ESFJ
Daria's Mom - ENTJ or ESTJ
Daria's Dad - ESFJ
Mr. O'Neill: INFP
Ms. Li - ESTJ
Mr. DiMartino - ISTP
Tom - INTJ
Thanks for reminding me of this show; I hadn't seen it in close to 10 years. It was fun to watch it again.
A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.
From what I've heard and seen (especially from my wife who used to watch it), I've always gotten the impression of a Chart the Course type (IST/INJ) rather than a Behind the Scenes. INTP's may get cynical like that, but I think that is only sometimes; not all the time. They're a little bit lighter that, and some uf us, much lighter than that.
She reminds us of my wife's long time best friend who is probably ISTJ. From what I have seen, sometimes they are like that, when they for whatever reason don't trust any of the social units to meet their Guardian needs. So they become total "loners" who just reject everybody. The pure "Melancholic".
(I see that in that black & white still image pilot episode, she is a bit lighter and even smiles sometimes).
I just meant that ethical considerations were always her main concern, and she seemed to be very sensitive (though she hid it behind a sarcastic and unconcerned exterior). This could be INFP, right?
Very much so. My sister used to call me "Daria" as a teen because she saw a lot of similarities. I still see Daria as more of an INTP overall though....I don't see her as that sensitive, or expressing it in the emotional INFP way. INTPs seem more likely to let something roll of their back, even if it hits a nerve.
Daria - INTP
Jane - ENFP, she just seems too open & outgoing to be an introvert & she's always dragging Daria to do things
Quinn - ESFJ
Helen - ESTJ
Jake - ESFP
Kevin - ESFP
Tom - INTJ

I've always thought Daria was very INTJ (though of course I'm probably slightly biased since I am and I love her so much) but there seems to be a lot of people who think she's INTP. It's hard to tell really. I've heard very strong arguments for both. But I stand by myself saying she's more likely INTJ.
I also thought she was more INTJ. I think it's probably because she shows more hints of Fi than Fe (like when they were at the mall and she tried to convince the business people that there was a higher moral purpose to their resistance).
