    Tarrlok from Legend of Korra is an ENFJ villain. Love him.

    edit: Speaking of LoK, Suyin is another ENFJ from the show. Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender may also be one, it's a popular typing for him though I personally see him as something else.

    Some interesting suggestions. I think Gatsby is a INFJ and Woody is a ESFJ, but I'm intrigued by the thought of Long John Silver and Marty McFly being ENFJ - I hadn't considered them. I'm compiling large list of fictional characters for each type (I won't dump it here it's too long), so I might think on it and possibly add them to the list. I need more positive examples of the type.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Really? That's awesome! I have a blog where I type fictional characters by MBTI preference (used to do it by cognitive function, but that method was too unstable); would be glad to lend you my character list for whatever type you need.

    I had originally typed Gatsby as INFJ myself, but after re-reading the novel, I began to see how outgoing and sociable he is. The guy needs constant human interaction, throwing huge parties at his house for complete strangers, renting out rooms to tenants and socializing with them, having to "talk out" his problems with Nick, etc.

    Gatsby is also highly manipulative, confrontational, and assertive. Plus, his role in the novel is very similar to what ENFJs do in real life: using warmth and persuasion to get people to cooperate for a cause.

    Not really certain about Woody. That's just a guess based on the portions of Toy Story that I've seen.

    I'd definitely like to have a look at it. I might not necessarily agree with all of them but it's useful to see a good list.

    TBH I haven't read the book and have only seen the movie - I'm not sure how much they differ. It seemed to me that he was quite reserved and kept a lot to himself despite being warm and friendly. He threw parties but was never at them. Also I think he connected to Nick and felt he was a sympathetic listener, but wasn't naturally open about his feelings the rest of the time. Also the degree that he focused on getting his world into a specific order and created the exact sort of lifestyle/person before finding daisy seemed more like a Ni-dom. Je doms act first and use an emerging plan as they go along. Pi doms get a plan perfectly in place and then take to action.

    That's kind of funny; I've read the book but never seen the movie (at least not the DiCaprio version). My humble opinion is that NJ types tend to operate in basically the same way: taking action (Judging) to realize their dreams (Intuition), with ENxJs being more aggressive and bold in how they go about it. I can't imagine an INxJ confronting Tom Buchanan the way Gatsby did (especially not an INFJ). But then again, just my opinion.

    I'm sure that you won't agree with all of the typings on my list, but they might give you some ideas. My blog contains a lot of well-known characters that have been overlook by MBTI enthusiasts, such as Hamlet, Captain Nemo, Nancy Drew, Odysseus, and others, so it might give you some new ones to consider.

    I'll send it in a private message.

    Just to add, I personally see Jinora from LoK as an ENFJ too. Most people say INFJ though. Not sure about Suyin but I agree with Tarrlok and Iroh.
