    Daniel Plainview is a great character study in scary sociopathic ENFJ.
    I love the movie, but come on!
    There are so many evil ENFJs in the fiction that you don't need to put the label on everyone! It spoils the fun.

    Heh actually I'd probably put him as an xNTJ. Not sure if he's E or I though.
    Thanks for the eye-roll. I loved the character, though.

    I'd probably go with INTJ, because of his amazing determination, planning, vision etc. He's an Introvert all the way - take for instance the whole monologue about how he hates people, or check his house in the final scene: a behemoth that is made to guard him from any encounter with people.
    Even his speech he used to convince people was copied every time and said with no true emotions.

    Roger Montgeoffry, aka the Earl Devane in Through a Glass Darkly by Karleen Koen

    A truly unforgettable, complex character.

    Dunno if it's been said but Quinn in the Reign of Fire might be an ENFJ.
    Obvious one: Esmeralda from the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

    Oliver Queen, Smallville's version. Perhaps Smallville's Lois Lane as well. Anthony Dinozzo is ENFx. Derek Morgan. Sam Winchester is xNFJ.

    Might I remind you that Hitler was likely ENFJ...look at Plainview's charisma with the people. NFJs can be just like NTJs in their brutal ambition and total belief that the ends justify the means. Fe isn't nice (or mean, or anything) on the inside; its entire conception of morality exists only as a function of interaction with others.

    Plainview is waaaay too smooth with people and always knows exactly the right thing to say to placate them so he can get what he wants. I've seen ENTJs learn this via inferior Fi, but Daniel Day-Lewis's character here does it way too naturally to be T.
    Weird, I see your point re. 'smooth with people', although I don't think that's beyond an ambitious ENTJ either...I pegged him as ENTJ. I wouldn't have pegged him as ENFJ. Would have put the crazed preacher/cult leader as NFJ before Daniel...I viewed the two as similar - both quite ambitious - but ambitious in different ways. Preacher-guy wrapped around more of the human-spirit and emotional levels, and trying to dominate/manipulate people emotionally, Daniel more enterprising in a technical/non-people/purely entrepreneurial, wealth and industry-controlling way.

    Has anybody thought about Shakespeare's Othello?

    He has a strong ego built off his accomplishments and triumph over adversity, He's comfortable and eloquent as a public figure. (Obviously an E-type) He's showy, idealistic, intelligent and passionate. He is generally calm and collected, but is capable of hellish wrath under unfortunate manipulation and circumstances. He values his friends and trusts them a little bit too much. His love for Desdemona is too strong and passionate for him to be anything other than NF- his military upbringing and structured approach to solving problems and diffusing situations suggests he's a J.

    I suppose it could be argued that he's an ESFJ- but I find his heightened self-awareness and his situational intelligence to point strongly towards him being an N-type.

    Also consider- Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter? Morpheus in the Matrix? As a general rule, I think the stereotype role for the ENFJ is the benevolent mentor figure. As someone described earlier, "I'm in control, but I still care."

    Very interesting... I definitely could see those two characters as ENFJs...

    However, I seem to suck at it when it comes to ENFJs.

    So... start listing some and why!
    My favorite ficitonal ENFJ is Jesus Christ from The Holy Bible. Its a decent read, but has a bit too much sex and violence for some tastes.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
