    Default The Great Gatsby

    Jay Gatsby.









    If Personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away.
    Gatsby believed in the green light, the future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning—
    And other characters, if you please.

    Daisy - xxFP
    Tom - ESTJ
    Nick - IxTP
    2w3 - 7w6 - 9w1 so/sx

    I don't know, but I'm all about seeing this movie when it's released.

    I think Daisy is an ESFP (in the book).

    Gatsby is maybe an INFJ? I think his actions point to inferior Si. He acts a bit like a dysfunctional ENFP, but doesn't show much Te.

    Nick is probably an ISxJ? It's hard to tell because he's rather bland. I'd even accept ISFP.

    Tom is an ESTJ.

    George (the cuckolded husband) seems rather ISTJ to me.

    Myrtle... ESFJ? She's so irrational and emotional, I don't even know.

    Jordan seems rather ISTP to me.

    ENFP. 7w6 – 4w3 – 1w9 sx/so. Aries. Dilettante. Overly anxious optimist.

    What do you think of INFP 8 for Gatsby? No idea on the wing, but it came to me as a possibility just weird enough to be right.

    Gatsby is the only intuitive in a world of sensors. No wonder he's driven up the wall.
