    I don't know, but the story always puts me in mind of my daughters, an INTJ and an INFP.

    Okay....now I just looked this up...and it seems that Jane Austen was an INTJ. Since the protagonist in the story is Jane...what do you think about Lizzie being INTJ and Darcy as embittered INFJ? (Hee! Hee! I think I secretly want the woman to be the NT and the man the NF!)

    Default Darcy's type

    Doesn't he have Fi? He cultivates a friendly attitude with Lizzie's aunt and uncle for her sake, but otherwise he doesn't use Fe much.

    Bridget Jones is definitely based on P&P. I love the final scene where she chases him out into the snow in her undies. And her boss (Hugh Grant) was perfect. I adore that movie!

    Isn't it funny you should say this. My theory is that the protagonists of Jane Austen's novels...are NTs because Jane was an INTJ. I seem to identify strongly with them because I am an NT as well. I don't really seem to identify with SJ women....so maybe you are right.

    He is very worried about his "image" and her linage though. Isn't that also Fe?

    Yes, I loved that movie and that final scene and Hugh Grant's character making fun of her granny panties too. It was the only chick flick I have ever watched that my husband just couldn't get into though.

    Lizzie's sister Jane is not an NT, probably an NF. Her other sisters are SJ, except for Lydia who's an SP.

    I loved it. I tend to like things Colin Firth is in. Anyone have ideas about the characters in The Importance of Being Earnest?

    I'm not sure if that happens in a romance movie (or it is a rare one if it does). Generally the woman is an F and the man is a T. On the other hand if you explore other genres I think you can find the female NT and male NF pairing. I believe in Contact you see that pairing with Jody Foster and Matthew McConaughey. In Star Wars I think Anakin is NF, and Padme is NT (too bad the acting wasn't better).

    Actually my favorite NF-NT pairing is the platonic one in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles between ENFP John Candy and INTJ Steve Martin. That is comedic gold right there. Meh, what can I say? I'm a male ENTP. I usually find comedic chemistry in movies more interesting than romantic chemistry.

    I'm not sure I can type characters in this play/movie. In any version I watch of it all of the characters come across as ENTP to me because of Oscar Wilde's witty/silly dialogue.

    I think that is far from a decided fact. In fact, I'll admit that I don't buy it. I think that Jane Austen was an NF.
