    The MBTI personality type of all major Walking Dead characters (dead or alive)

    I've been wondering: what would be the personality types from the Myers-Briggs type indicator given to the Walking Dead Characters. Now before I go further, I need to give the descriptions or each of the 16 types:

    ISTJ - The Duty Fulfiller

    Serious and quiet, interested in security and peaceful living. Extremely thorough, responsible, and dependable. Well-developed powers of concentration. Usually interested in supporting and promoting traditions and establishments. Well-organized and hard working, they work steadily towards identified goals. They can usually accomplish any task once they have set their mind to it.

    ISTP - The Mechanic


    Quiet and reserved, interested in how and why things work. Excellent skills with mechanical things. Risk-takers who they live for the moment. Usually interested in and talented at extreme sports. Uncomplicated in their desires. Loyal to their peers and to their internal value systems, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. Detached and analytical, they excel at finding solutions to practical problems.

    ISFJ - The Nurturer

    Usually the benchmark for deciding whether someone is I or E comes down to whether or not one can tell if that person is happy or angry- If it is obvious, they more likely to be more on the E side of things. Jobs can also change the type since we may be different at school & work than at home.

    The internet changed things a lot though- many of us here may be more or less outgoing here at STD than in real life. Also most people over time become more balanced between the 2 extremes of each category. I've taken the test 10+ times (corporate America loves it! despite the lack of proof) and I always come out as close to the middle I/E + NTJ fwiw, so the above makes me a Milton Mamet which doesn't completely fit. I am more outgoing here than in daily life...

    Mileage varies

    KenobiFan1999, just do a Google search for the MBTI test and find a site that gives you a free interpretation- we can't link to copyrighted stuff here, remember? The New York Times had a great article about the pros and cons of the MBTI and how much corporate America still loves it so that is also a great read. Enjoy !

    Wow I just came across this and its so cool, I have a bit of reading to do before I try and figure out where Tyreese, Sasha, Bob, Lizzie etc fit in. Also going to check out the article Ripley suggested to see if a persons "MBTI" can change over time due to age, expierience etc.
    most excellent
