    A friend tricked me into watching a few episodes of the show, so I'll chime in.

    Bones herself strongly fits a textbook MBTI definition of a sensor. She lives and thrives in the world of what are (at least in her view) objective facts. She doesn't put up with much nuance or unfounded speculation. As a rule she sticks to things as they are. While one may argue that this comes from her scientific background, the behavior is prototypical S.

    Given this noticeable S, I would propose that the character leads with her S function, suggesting either IS_J or ES_P. Of those two, I feel that IS_J is considerably more reasonable because she has shown to not be inherently "experience seeking" as one may expect from one leading with Se and because she deals heavily with the past both as her occupation and in her occupation. (the latter by connecting details she recalls from previous instances, suggesting an Si-like memory)

    From there, it's ISTJ or ISFJ. She seeks to deal with the world objectively (from a standpoint of definitions, T>F) and with strong regards to empiricism. (Te>Ti)

    While she does not always appear to meet the often negative SJ stereotype, Bones fits the ISTJ profile almost perfectly.


    Because I'm lazy, I'm just throwing out ExFJ for Booth. Strong focus on people and drawing out emotions.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    It's possible he's S. That would make him ESFP then. Hard call. The objections could be just because the culture trains him that introspection such as that isn't masculine somehow. He seems to have a need to prove his masculinity, what with the "cocky" belt buckles and all.

    I think i agree with Angela-esfp. at first, i thought she was an enfp, until, she said she lives in the moment. it was the eposide where Roxie breaks up with her. esfps lives in the moment, a lot.

    Booth can't be a sensor, the entire first season of the show develop's his character and his ability to unconciously and intuitively read people they are interviewing or questioning. Aside from authority the only real unique ability he brings to the table is his ability to see beneath the surface when dealing with people. I would say he is quite intuitive...

    I think some of us are making the classic mistake and are mistaking intelligence of N/S, Bones shows many classic signs of being a strong sensor. She doesn't trust her instincts, she bases all conclusions on cold hard facts and misses many jokes other character's make because she is stuck on what people are saying and not on what they mean.

    I agree with Angela being ESFP and Zack being INTP though.

    Bones- INTP (not ENTP -- her Ne actually appears to be unnaturally weak; she seems to run on a weird Ti-Si loop).
    Booth- ESFJ
    Hodgins- ENTP
    Angela- ESTP (ST rather than N or F -- her sexuality is just Se at work, and she appears deductive rather than intuitive).
    Zack- INTP

    That's called Fe.

    I actually agree with this, but I still think she's an N. She's strongly Ti rather than Te, and she seems Si rather than Se.

    I agree with that typing of Bones, Hodgins and Zack, am undecided on Booth and think Angela is an ENFP. She's far too inclined to seek out emotional connection and put herself to ethical causes, like that thing with the pig that Bones couldn't understand.
