Anna – Frozen: ESFP

Guest Post by E.J., INTJ

Frozen

Anna ESFP | Frozen #MBTI #ESFP

Dominant Se: Ana loves to be active. As a small child, her way of bonding with her sister was shared activity time. When Elsa is no longer allowed to engage in physical play with Ana, their relationship suffers. Ana misses her sister on an emotional level, but she expresses her feelings by complaining about how bored she is and wishing that they could do something together (“Do you wanna build a snowman?/ Or ride our bikes around the halls…”). Ana looks forward to her sister’s coronation because of the party involved. Excitement makes her move physically–she runs and dances around throughout the movie. Ana’s Se gives her boldness in some situations that would terrify others: she has enough confidence in her physical abilities that she is willing to climb into the mountains alone. Throughout the movie, Ana helps to connect her sister to the real, physical world–running interference for Elsa early on as Elsa grieves, and, eventually, encouraging Elsa to use her gift to delight their people.

Maude – Harold and Maude: ESFP

Harold and Maude

Maude ESFP | Harold and Maude #MBTI #ESFP

Se: Maude enjoys a thrill. She loves to drive crazy, smell things, feel things and do pretty much anything that thrills her senses. She loves to dance and lives to have fun. She’s agile for an old woman and doesn’t have any problem jumping around, stealing cars, shovels and trees right under people’s noses. Her main goal in life is to explore new experience and love every minute of it. Continue reading

Ash Ketchum: ESFP

Guest Post by Andrew, ENTJ

Pokemon Anime Franchise

Ash Ketchum ESFP | Pokemon #MBTI #ESFP

Se: Ash makes every decision, big and small, spontaneously.  These range from starting Pokemon battles for any reason (or no reason) to starting a new journey to some unknown region based solely on a whim.  Ash usually does not enter a Pokemon battle with a plan of action; he relies instead on a seemingly innate feel for tactics in the moment.  Ash also prefers to learn through first-hand experience, not through books or classes.

How to Tell the Difference: INTJ vs ISFP

alifara asked: What is the difference between XNTJ and XSFP ? are ISFPs capable of being cold, highly-critical, and impulsive ?

Yes, ISFPs can certainly be cold and highly critical –just like any type can behave coldly and critically. A good fictional example of this type of ISFP would be Kat Stratford from 10 Things I Hate About You.  Continue reading

The Gentleman with the Thisteldown Hair

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Suzanna Clark

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell MBTI | Gentleman ESFP

Extraverted Sensing (Se): The Gentleman is rather impulsive and can sometimes be talked out of murder. Sometimes (do not count on this). He likes to butt his head into the thick of things other people’s business. He’s aware of the physical environment in a decadent sort of way, and is drawn to Steven Black for his worldly qualities. He takes advantage of opportunities to immerse himself in new environments, including the lives of humans Continue reading

Rose MacClare: ESFP

Downton Abbey

Rose McClare ESFP | Downton Abbey MBTI

Se: Rose loves dancing and partying and doesn’t enjoy the slowness of Downton. She wants to live in the moment, doesn’t really plan ahead but doesn’t have a problem with surprises. She is highly stimulated by her surroundings, particularly when the setting is lively and there’s music playing. Rose loves spontaneity and beauty and enjoys a good chance to Continue reading

Jack Dawson: ESFP

Titanic

Jack Dawson ESFP | Titanic MBTI

Se: Jack is spontaneous, living in the present and observant of his surroundings. He pays attention to little things in his environment and can use them to his advantage at the spur of the moment. He says he wants to make each day count, not the future, not the past –each day. He jumps into action quickly, acting to save Rose’s life and slipping into first class dining halls last minute. He’s a visual person, an artist in fact (but sadly doesn’t Continue reading
