    Default The Little Prince

    So what his type? I've seen him listed as INFP before, but is he really? Any clues on enneagram or socionics?

    Here you can read the book
    , it'll take a few hours at most.

    From a brief overview of the book link (didn't read all through it) the Little prince screams xNFP to me. I see lots of Fi/Ne in the book . I am not experienced in E types but at a glance I would say 6w7. (On an unrelated note this was James Deans (Yes the famous cool guy) favourite book)

    I read the book as a child and it didn't interest me much. I read it again when I was older, and it really clicked on me. Not so much the values portrayed in the book, but the little prince himself. The way his mind worked; it was like reading my own thought process. I don't know what his MBTI type is, but I believe he is a LIE-Ni (not IEI/INFp nor EII/INFj), 4w3(sw3w2)-5w6(sw6w7)-8w9(sw9w1) sx/sp-sp/so. It is true that he has a lot of Ne and Fi, but he also has a load of Ni and also Te. I'm confident saying he is my identical.

    One possbile theory is that he may be a ISFP with well balanced Se-Ni which can look like Ne and this would also explain the Ni-Te you see.

    Well, I think he is something like Ne>Ni>Fi>Te>Se>Ti>Fe>Si. Not sure how this would fit with the MBTI model, but in socionics the best fit really seems to be an ENTj (INFj could work too but he has too much Te and Se). But the function definitions in socionics differ a bit from MBTI (socionics Te is about logic and data, not pushy at all; Fi is about relationships and internal emotions, and Se is about management of territory, attack and defense, not about sensory pleasure). Since I am MBTI ENTP, I would like to type him ENTP too but it doesn't make much sense. INFP (socionics INFj) seems a better fit. Unless I am INFP too (:O).

    The reason why you relate to him may be more due to your Ennergram type than your MBTI. ENTP 4 is a unusual ennergram-MBTI combo so you may actually be a XXFP type or possibly ether 3w4 or 5w4 as 3w4 and 5w4 are more what i would expect from an ENTP.

    Yep, it a bit rare. I used to think I was 3w4 but after meeting several 3w4's IRL I came to the conclusion that I am not one. Perhaps I should type myself MBTI INFP for congruency (and so people don't get annoyed).

    I'm going to try enneatyping the characters in the book:

    The little prince -- 4w3 sx/sp
    Aviator (Saint-Exupery) -- 7w6
    Rose -- 3w4
    King -- 8w7
    Conceited man -- 3w2
    Drunkard -- 9w8
    Businessman -- 1w9
    Lamplighter -- 6w7
    Geographer -- 5w6
    Fox -- 5w4
    Snake --4w5

    Off topic, but there's a kpop MV where a supposed INFP sings about The Little Prince, called simply "The Little Prince" (어린왕자). I haven't watched it (or maybe I did once) but maybe that'll tell you something about the character.
