    Also Bones seems easy to upset which would fit with the ISTJ shadow of ENFP. INTJs, ime, tend to not worry about if they are accepted or not, or deal with it with venom. Bones seems more put off when her "logical" actions offend people.. that just doesn't say NT to me.
    I think she just seems confused when she offends people, and not particularly upset.

    I don't get how some people think she is an E, particularly if they have watched all going-on-four seasons... explain please?

    The extrovert thing:
    1) Don't be thrown of by her being a "squint." There are plenty of extroverted lab geeks in real-life too. She really fits the ENTP mold....The professor who juggles book writing, speaking at universities/conferences, teaching classes/or apprentecships, solving murder mysteries, while keeping a very active personal life with many hobbies, and sometimes even juggling multiple partners. She is constantly multi-tasking. A lot of it is inferred, but if you pay close attention, you can see her doing it during the show.

    2) She has little if anything in the way of being "reserved." If there is a candidate for simply saying what comes to mind, she's one...even more than Hodgens, Cam, or Angela. She almost always takes initiative, and likes to have a fairly large influence in her surroundings.

    I have a hard time seeing her as an introvert. Note that extrovert does not always mean chatter-box.

    The reason I say EP, beyond the heavy emphasis on "process" is the way she "flits" in conversation. Try to keep track of who does the changes in non-case related conversation.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    hmm
    aspires to record what her Ne and Ti picks up
    is working on Fe-at least the social mores
    and she's not possesive like an INTJ would be with relationships
    she is very airy-

    I just dvred this show

    Bones is deffinatley NT
    Booth is NF

    I loved the way they stuck her positioned right in the middle of three guys each representing the theory mind body and soul. Gee I wonder who she will end up with.

    And the intern or whatever she is is brilliantly annoying

    Sweets is Fe. Maybe INFJ, but really laid back for an INFJ. He has an NFP approach almost.

    Booth always seemed ESTP to me. He lacks some of the sensitivities of an NF. And he has no time for philosophising. Also believes that the law stands paramount, but maybe just because he is a policeman. Might be an ENFJ? They said he was an ethical intuitive in one of the episodes.

    Angela - ENFP (heart to hearts, bending the system, and the like. She is also the only F who approaches Brennan and Zack as equals when it comes to feeling).

    Zack - INTP (with Asperger's)

    Brennan - ENTP? not sure at all.

    Ok, there are only two possiblities for Brennan, ESTJ or ISTJ. She is FAR too S to be confused for an N. She completely lacks the ability to pick up non-verbal comunication and takes everything extremely literally. She's a scientist, but that does not make her an INTJ because one of the names for the type is "The Scientist". She takes pleasure in the process of science, and she sees the "facts" as the only real truth...S! lol. She's nowhere close to being ENTP. I'd say ESTJ.
    As for Booth, he's ENTJ, he has a hard time talking about his feelings with anyone (including Brennan), though he is willing to coach people through their own problems. He loves to be in charge, to marshal and direct. All these are classic attributes of the ENTJ.

    All I know about Bones is that she's a sexy motherbitch.

    I'd agree with ISTJ for Bones. Maybe INTJ.

    i always thought of Booth as an ENFJ and Brennan as INTJ/ISTJ.

    I think Angela is an ESFP.

    I changed my mind from my OP, and I agree with you about Brennan as an ISTJ. The last half of Season 4 did it for me.... For some reason though she did seem closer to the S/N border in the first season or two.

    I now wonder what took me so long to see it, but then, I realize that I saw similarities between her and myself because of some of the psychological issues underlying the typology. haha.
