The first main characters are pretty close to my impressions except I thought Leslie Knope was an ENFJ. She is an impractical visionary, so I don't think she is down to earth enough to be an ESFJ. She gets out of hand with her vision of reality that isn't reality. Only iNuitives manage that.

I would probably place Andy Dwyer as an ESFP. His songs are extremely literal like "I fell in the pit". ENFPs are crazy whimsical and would probably sing about inter-dimensional turtles or something.

I'm like an unholy combination between Ben Wyatt and April Ludgate. I guess the relevance is that I see both of those characters are IN types, although I'd allow for wiggle room with the last two letters. Well, actually, there is no way April is a J. She ate out of a frisbee with Andy and just shared one fork with him until Ben pointed out that they should probably buy actually plates and more silverware. But... that kind of thing really isn't that far removed until from something the younger me might have done.


Also, I agree about Leslie being an Idealist rather than a Guardian. I mean, she's kind of the poster child for that, right?

I love Parks and Rec! I agree with most of your observations, but some points I differ on:

- Leslie is a core 2w3, not 1w2. She wants to do the right thing and develops her 1-fix throughout the series, but her core motivation is wanting to be loved and appreciated for what she does (a fixation you see more with heart than gut types).

- Donna strikes me as a sp 7w8. I can see where you might think she's an 8 (as there are many similarities between 8s and sp 7's), but her motives and behaviors strike me as more of an sp 7.

- April; core 9w8. Triple withdrawn is right, but I don't see her core personality clicking or motives with 5 or 4.

- Where do you see the 2-fix for Ron? I see him as more a 583. Also, ISTJ.

- Jeremy Jamm does NOT strike me as an ENTP; dude is Se as hell. His obsession with pleasure via material things and luxury items is indicative of Se-dom for me. ESTP.

I see your points.
- The reason why I see Leslie Knope as an ESFJ rather than an ENFJ is that I see her Si in her reverence of the past. She talks about Pawnee's history a lot, and she has all these traditions with her friends. That is Si. I see her ideas to improve Pawnee as multiple ideas (Ne) as opposed to a singular vision (Ni).
- I see Jamm as an ENTP due to his witty remarks. I did not see a lot of Se from him, but ESTP makes sense as well.
- The reason why I see April Ludgate as a 4w5 instead of a 9w8 is because she seeks her identity more than she seeks harmony. She is not very concerned with reality during much of the series, and she wants to be "her own person."

I think April is actually a 5w4 sx/sp. None of the subtypes for Type 4 fit her. SX 5 does fit her.
