Here’s the Walking Dead Character You’d Be, Based On Your Myers-Briggs® Personality Type

· · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · ·

Over the last five months, my 16-year-old daughter and I have been watching The Walking Dead in the evenings. We cringe together, laugh together, and sometimes we even cry together watching it. Often we find ourselves dissecting the character’s personality types and analyzing which characters made choices we agreed or disagreed with. Now that we’re finally into season 10 of the show, I figured I know enough about the characters to finally type them! That said, keep in mind they are fictional characters and I can’t actually have a consultation with any of them (although that would be interesting for sure!)

So let’s get started!

Here’s the Walking Dead Character You’d Be, Based On Your Myers-Briggs® Personality Type

Rick Grimes – ISTJ

Rick Grimes ISTJ

Dutiful and practical, Rick Grimes is one of my favorite fictional ISTJs. He thinks carefully about situations and is rarely impulsive. It’s crucial to him to do what’s right, although through the course of the series, his version of what’s right changes. While he often has strong convictions, he can struggle to get his point across in a convincing and persuasive way at times. He sometimes starts off a conversation about something volatile by stating the facts rather than stating all the contexts and feelings around the facts. This can result in fights and misunderstandings that could have been avoided if he’d explained things in a more emotionally resonant way or given more context. Many ISTJs have this habit because they often believe that only the facts are what matters and they don’t like to feel like they’re giving themselves excuses or over-explaining.

While Rick feels things deeply, he doesn’t always verbalize his emotions as much as some other personality types might. This can sometimes result in people misunderstanding him or thinking he’s unemotional. But the people who know him know that his loyalty and kindness are there, even if they’re hiding beneath a hard and weary exterior.

Carl Grimes – ISFP

Carl Grimes ISFP

I looked at a lot of other people’s thoughts on Carl’s type before typing him and was surprised to see how many people chose XSTP for him. I’m going to stray from popular opinion in my typing of him, though, and type him as ISFP. Carl is someone who clearly feels things deeply all throughout the show. His final actions were to try to forge peace between the communities of Alexandria, Hilltop, and even the Saviors. While he doesn’t always verbalize his feelings outright, he feels things deeply and has a strong moral compass that shows up partway through the series. When he’s emotionally impacted by something, he follows his heart even if it might put him in precarious situations. During his final conversation with Negan he asks, “Is this really the man you wanted to be?” in an effort to get to the core of who Negan is and what he wants in life. He appeals to the humanity of his father as well. Much of Carl’s life revolves around his convictions and his struggle to discover what is ultimately right and wrong. Yes, he is impulsive, something that is common for Sensing-Perceiving types. But he’s also someone who is concerned with preserving his humanity and his inner core.

Lori Grimes – ESFJ

Lori Grimes ESFJ

I really struggled to define Lori’s type for a while. Throughout the course of the series I considered ESFJ, ESTJ, ISFJ, and ISTJ. She’s one of those characters that we don’t get an inside look at on many occasions. She seems outspoken and no-nonsense, which is something ESxJs are famous for. At times she can be blunt and reasonable and at other times she can be focused on matters of the heart and emotions to the detriment of all else. I found myself loving her at some moments for her practicality and level-headedness (a common trait of Sensing types) but I also found that she was wishy-washy at other times and sent a lot of mixed messages to both Shane and Rick. I believe she’s an ESFJ because she seems concerned with the emotional welfare of the group and is often found comforting someone in distress. At times she’s indecisive about what she wants and can be unclear in her messaging, which is something that ESFJs can struggle with when they’re worried about hurting someone. While she’s a more blunt ESFJ than I’m used to experiencing, I still feel like ESFJ fit better than ESTJ because an ESTJ would have been much more clear, decisive, and focused on logistical leadership than she seems to be. She’s acutely aware of peoples’ feelings, and can change her stance on something from one moment to the next based on the emotional reactions of the people around her. For example, she tells Shane never to speak to Carl again, and then chastizes him a few days later for blowing Carl off.

Shane Walsh – ESTP

Shane Walsh ESTP

Shane, like most ESTPs, is a man of action. He’s always moving and always looking for the next thing to do. He’s impulsive and often makes decisions without thinking them through first. This can be both a good and a bad thing. On the one hand, it makes him a natural leader in difficult situations. People are drawn to his confidence and his ability to take charge. On the other hand, his impulsiveness often gets him into trouble. He’s quick to anger and doesn’t always think things through before he acts. This can put himself and the people around him in danger and ultimately leads to disaster.

Glenn Rhee – INFJ

Glenn Rhee INFJ

Glenn is one of the most principled people in The Walking Dead. He is driven by his values and can sometimes make decisions that others see as illogical because he knows it’s the right decision in his heart. Wearing his heart on his sleeve comes naturally to him, and in one episode he struggles to keep a secret because his feelings tend to be so obvious on his face. This is a typical problem of Feeling-Judging (FJ) personality types who tend to be more emotionally expressive than others.

One of Glenn’s many talents includes being able to come up with strategies and plans for the future. We see this in the way he comes up with an effective way to grab Rick’s bag of guns in Atlanta without getting trapped by walkers. In typical INFJ fashion, Glenn can often see beneath someone’s outside demeanor to what’s really going on on the inside. He helps Enid overcome her trust issues by being patient with her and understanding where she’s coming from. We also see Glenn’s inferior Extraverted Sensing side when he’s stressed. During especially tense moments, he can become more impulsive, rash, and physically aggressive.

Daryl Dixon – ISTP

Daryl Dixon ISTP

Daryl is an independent thinker who isn’t afraid to go off on his own and do things his own way. He’s very in tune with the world around him and is always observing his surroundings. When a crisis arises, he’s quick to react pragmatically. Rather than panicking or getting grossed out, he sees what needs to be done and puts his feelings aside to stay present and attentive.

Like most ISTPs, Daryl is not afraid of taking risks, which can sometimes get him into trouble. However, he is also a loyal friend and fiercely protective of the people he cares about. When he first meets Carol, he’s gruff and doesn’t seem to care about her all that much. However, as the series goes on, we see Daryl gradually opening up to her and becoming more protective of her. He even risks his own life to save hers on multiple occasions. This goes to show that many seemingly stoic and tough-minded people can be hiding a very caring, sensitive interior.

Carol Peletier – ISFP

Carol Peletier ISFP

Carol is probably my favorite character in The Walking Dead, but also one of the most difficult to type. I considered ISFJ, ISFP, and even INTJ for her on many occasions. As one of the most fully developed characters in the series, she shows use of all eight cognitive functions at various times. But ultimately, ISFP seems to be her most natural fit. She’s someone who is highly attentive to details and can act quickly in the moment without a lot of preparation or planning. She’s highly adaptable and in season 10 deals with her problems by escaping and going somewhere new. Rather than stick with the community she knows, she repeatedly ducks out in order to figure herself out and deal with her own feelings. In dangerous situations she’s quick on her feet and comes up with pragmatic solutions on the fly. All this is indicative of ISFP.

Carol is often referred to as the “mother” of the group. This isn’t just because she’s one of the few women remaining, but also because she takes on a caregiving role for many of the people around her. Healthy ISFPs are very devoted and caring people who will make great sacrifices for the people they love. In fact, ISFPs are often over-represented in health care fields according to the MBTI® Manual. Yet like most ISFPs, Carol keeps a lot of her emotions hidden and can wear a mask if she feels it will help her cope with her inner turmoil or get by. ISFPs often keep their inner feelings to themselves until they’ve fully processed them. They are not “open books” and can take a while to understand.

Andrea Harrison – ESFP

Andrea Harrison ESFP

Andrea’s passion and conviction made her a polarizing character in The Walking Dead. While she could be empathetic, outspoken, and pragmatic at some points, she could also become self-righteous and obnoxious at others. But nobody is perfect; we all have our moments of weakness. Andrea’s moments of weakness just happened to be played out a television drama for the entire world to see. In the end, though, Andrea was a good-hearted person who was just trying to do her best in a difficult situation.

I chose ESFP for Andrea because she tends to react quickly in the moment and pick up skills fairly quickly. She speaks her thoughts quickly, like most extroverts, and doesn’t hold back when she feels someone is being unjust. Like most sensors, she considers herself a realist, seeing things for how they are and not getting wrapped up in fantasy, idealism, or daydreaming. Andrea is also quite passionate, which is evident in the way she stands up for herself and fights for what she believes is right. And like most perceivers, she seems to operate fairly well without a plan or a clear sense of structure.

Morgan Jones – INFP

Morgan Jones INFP

Morgan is someone who is constantly grappling with issues of right and wrong. Throughout the series we see him try to figure out how he can maintain his humanity (and how others can) during such dark and difficult times. Morgan is very in touch with his emotions and is often driven by his feelings. This can sometimes lead him to make detrimental decisions, but it also allows him to have empathy and insight. Often he tends to go off on his own because he knows he needs to live according to what is right for him and take time to figure himself out. He doesn’t want to be led by “groupthink” or majority rules no matter how tempting it may be.

Dale Horvath – ENFJ

Dale Horvath ENFJ

If Carol is the “mother” of the group, then Dale was at one point the “father”. He’s someone who takes on a caregiving role for many of the people around him. He provides emotional support and guidance, and is always looking out for his friends’ best interests. His gentle countenance and insightful musings provide a sense of calm and comfort to many in the series. Ultimately, Dale is someone who believes in the goodness of people, even when they might not deserve it. He’s compassionate and forgiving, but he’s also not afraid to stand up for what he believes in. Often his knowing stare lets people know that he sees what’s going on for them even if they haven’t verbalized it.

When the group first meets Dale, he’s already retired and living a life of relative peace and quiet. But when the world falls apart, he’s quick to step up and take on a leadership role. He uses his experience and wisdom to help the group navigate their way through the new world they find themselves in.

ENFJs like Dale can often step into leadership in order to mentor people and maintain positive morale. In one situation, Dale pretends his camper van isn’t working longer so that his friends will look for Sofia longer. He has a clear idea of what’s right and wrong, but he knows how people are and how they will typically react. Because of this, he tailors his environment to guide people toward a higher ethical standard of living.

Maggie Rhee – ENTJ

Maggie Rhee ENTJ

Maggie has the decisiveness, vision, and blunt nature of a typical ENTJ. She’s highly focused on efficiency and getting things done, and isn’t afraid to voice her opinion even if her thoughts seem harsh. She isn’t afraid of making tough decisions, even if they’re unpopular. When she wants something, she’s up front about it. When she approaches Glenn about wanting to be with him, she’s very clear about what she wants and why. She doesn’t try to sugarcoat her desires or make them seem more palatable, which can sometimes come across as harsh. However, Maggie is also someone who cares deeply about her community and the people in it. She’s a natural leader and often takes charge in chaotic situations.

Beth Greene – INFP

Beth Greene INFP

Beth is a kind and caring person who often puts others before herself. She’s someone who is very in touch with her values and longs to live a principled life in a world that is increasingly unprincipled. Idealistic and imaginative, she often turns to music and song as a way to cope with the harsh realities of the world around her. While others might see her as fragile at times, she’s actually incredibly strong. She becomes someone who offers hope to others during their darkest moments. When someone she cares about dies (trying not to post spoilers here) she manages to stay strong and adjust to the world around her as best she can. She creatively solves problems in crisis situations and never stops considering the humanity of the people she’s with, even if they are her enemies.

Hershel Greene – ISFJ

Hershel Greene ISFJ

Hershel is a kind-hearted man who believes in carrying out his responsibility to his community and family. While he can be skeptical of newcomers, when he gets to know people he’s willing to help them in any way he can. He’s a natural caregiver and often puts the needs of others before his own. His insight into human emotions helps him to give words of wisdom and comfort to people who are struggling.

Like most ISFJs, Hershel is a man of principle, sticking to his convictions even when it would be easier to give in. And like most ISFJs, he has a strong sense of tradition and family. It’s hugely difficult for him to leave his family farm, even when it’s clear that it’s no longer safe. Like most ISFJs he’s very tied to the idea of home and hearth and wants to create a sense of stability and security wherever he goes.

Michonne – ISTP

Michonne ISTP

Michonne is a strong and independent woman who is highly aware of her surroundings and how to work within them. As a strong fighter, she knows how to trust her instincts to make split-second decisions. Unafraid of risks, she’s often one of the first people to act in a dangerous situation. Michonne is also very in tune with her own sense of logic and isn’t afraid to do what she believes makes sense, even if others argue with her. This shows up when she becomes the security advisor for Alexandria. Like most ISTPs, Michonne has a warm heart underneath her stoic exterior. She just doesn’t let it show all that often unless she’s very close to someone.

Milton Mamet – INTP

Milton Mamet INTP

Milton Mamet is the scientist that the Governor trusts to find a cure for the zombie virus. He’s highly intelligent and always trying to reach a deeper understanding of the world around him. Like most INTPs, Milton is an analytical individual who is more interested in ideas than people. Even though he knows the Governor is becoming more barbaric by the day, he stays alongside him so that he can attempt to understand more about the zombies and how to reverse this apocalypse. He appears reserved and detached but he’s insightful enough to realize that the Governor is a dangerous man and tries to stop him.

Lizzie Samuels – ENFP

Lizzie Samuels ENFP

Lizzie is a young girl who is incredibly imaginative and creative. She’s always seeing the best in people and looking for the silver lining in every situation. Lizzie is an idealist, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. She’s also very compassionate and empathetic, even going so far as to care about zombies and try to defend them. Unfortunately, Lizzie’s imagination becomes her downfall when she can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality. She’s a kind and thoughtful girl with good intentions, but her inability to see the world as it truly is becomes a major threat to her safety and the safety of the group.

Eugene Porter – INTP

Eugene Porter INTP

Eugene is the group’s resident scientist and he takes his job very seriously. He’s always thinking, always questioning, and always looking for answers. He has a deep understanding of the world around him and is always looking for ways to improve it. His ingenuity shows up countless times throughout the season; whether he’s making a nauseating escape from Rosita and Daryl or figuring out how to make bullets. Eugene is always thinking two steps ahead. While he may not always be the bravest member of the group, his intelligence and creativity more than make up for it in the end.

Rosita Espinosa – ESTP

Rosita Espinosa ESTP

Strong-willed and fierce, Rosita won’t back down from a challenge. She’s a survivor who has been through a lot in her life, and it has made her into a tough fighter. Like most ESTPs, Rosita is fast to act and highly aware of her surroundings. She’s also gifted at understanding how things work, which comes in handy when she has to rig up explosive devices and take out enemies. She’s a capable leader and an asset to any team, but her impulsive nature can sometimes get her into trouble.

Abraham Ford – ESTJ

Abraham Ford ESTJ

Abraham is a man of action. He’s decisive, outspoken, and always ready to take on whatever challenge comes his way. He’s the kind of person who believes in following through on his commitments, no matter how difficult they may be. He’s also fiercely loyal to the people he cares about and has a strong sense of right and wrong. ESTJs are “In-Charge” types, and Abraham shows this by becoming a natural leader and handling difficult situations when others are panicking or running away in fear. And like most Sensors, he’s very pragmatic, preferring to deal with the here-and-now rather than abstract concepts or future possibilities. Yet like most ESTJs he isn’t all work and seriousness. He has a quirky sense of humor that comes through in his off-the-wall one-liners and responses to threats.

Paul “Jesus” Monroe – INFJ

Paul Jesus Monroe INFJ

INFJs are often seen as the “mystics” of the personality community. They are insightful, big-picture oriented, and deeply empathetic. “Jesus” or Paul Monroe from The Walking Dead perfectly embodies these characteristics. He believes in standing up for what’s right and giving people a second chance, even when those people are Hilltop’s persecutors, the Saviors. Jesus is also a gifted negotiator and often uses his charm and insight to diffuse difficult situations. But most importantly, he’s a man of principle. He believes in what he’s doing and he’s not afraid to fight for it; even if that means going up against some of the most ruthless people in the world.

Sasha Williams – ISTJ

Sasha Williams ISTJ

Sasha is a no-nonsense kind of woman. She’s fiercely independent and doesn’t take kindly to being told what to do. Reliable and hard-working, she pulls her weight and gets frustrated with anyone who is slacking. She’s not one for small talk or idle chatter; she’d rather get straight to the point. When it comes to making decisions, Sasha relies on logic and facts rather than her gut feelings. And while she’s not the most emotional person in the world, she does have a deep love for her family and friends.

Tyrese Williams – ISFP or ISFJ

Tyrese Williams ISFP or ISFJ

Tyrese is a gentle giant with a heart of gold. He’s the kind of person who would give you the shirt off his back, even if he barely knew you. Fiercely loyal and protective, he wants to protect his people without causing harm to anyone – even the zombies. While he’s often underestimated for his gentleness and forgiving nature, Tyrese is brave in that he’ll go to any lengths to stay aligned with his sense of right and wrong. Although the series didn’t give us a clear idea of whether he was an ISFP or an ISFJ, he’s clearly someone who values feelings and values over cold, hard logic.

Tara Chambler – ENFP or ESFP

Tara Chambler ENFP or ESFP

Tara’s character was slightly harder to pin down than some of the others in The Walking Dead series. She appears friendly and extroverted, easily conversing with a wide variety of diverse people. She also seems to rely on her convictions and values more than hard facts or logic when it comes to her decisions. But an intuition (N) or sensing (S) preference was harder to identify. At times her quirky humor reminded me of an ENFP, but at other times her ability to react quickly and pragmatically seemed to be more Sensing in nature. All I can say at this point is that the S or N preference is unclear, but it’s safe to say she is an Extrovert, Feeler, and Perceiver.

Denise Cloyd – INFJ

Denise Cloyd INFJ

Denise is a gifted doctor with a kind and compassionate heart. She’s the type of person who will go out of her way to help others, even if it makes her uncomfortable or puts her in danger. When it comes to her work, Denise is extremely dedicated and takes her responsibilities very seriously. Like many INFJs, she struggles to think straight in chaotic situations and needs space and quiet to process and analyze. Even if at times she seems clumsy or afraid, she tries to push past her fears and overcome them for the welfare of the group. Her insights into people are also scarily astute. When she confronts Rosita and Daryl about their feelings and reactions to her, it’s clear that she knows how to get to the heart of them even when they try to hide their struggles.

Aaron – ESFJ

Aaron ESFJ

Aaron is a kind and gentle man who believes in the goodness of people. He’s always quick to offer a helping hand, even to strangers. He has a strong sense of community and works hard to build relationships with the people he meets. Putting people at ease comes naturally to him, and it makes sense that he was chosen to recruit new people into Alexandria. Yet even though he wants to help newcomers, he also craves security. Like most ESFJs, he has a strong need for stability and certainty. When his loved ones are killed, he starts to become more restrained and careful about trusting those outside Alexandria’s walls.

Gabriel Stokes – INFJ

Gabriel Stokes INFJ

Although Gabriel’s character starts off with some detestable characteristics, he eventually becomes a true hero. Gabriel is a man of faith who often relies on his intuition to guide him. He’s gentle and compassionate, always quick to offer a kind word or a listening ear. Because he’s been humbled by his past failures he believes in giving others a second chance. He knows that there is more to a person than what immediately meets the eye. Even with the most violent criminals, Gabriel works to see the good in them and to find a way to help them redeem themselves.

Edit Upon Watching Season 10 and some of Season 11: Gabriel seems to grow harder and more jaded throughout season 10 and 11. I still stand by INFJ, but he definitely presents a more cold exterior.

Negan – ENTP

Negan ENTP

Negan is one of the most complex characters in The Walking Dead series. He’s intelligent, strategic, and always several steps ahead of his enemies. He’s also a master manipulator who knows how to push people’s buttons and get them to do what he wants. Like most ENTPs, he can be charming and charismatic, appealing to peoples’ emotions and toying with them in order to get the reaction he wants. In fact, he seems to take pleasure in doing this. His quick wit and sharp tongue make him a formidable opponent in any debate or conversation.

Like most ENTPs, Negan isn’t afraid of taking risks, even when the stakes are high. Yet he has a framework of logical rules that he relies on to keep himself and the Saviors in a position of power for as long as possible.

Enid – ISFP

Enid ISFP

Enid is an independent young woman who has learned how to take care of herself. Through hardship and pain she became a jaded survivor who was hesitant to trust anyone. Yet despite all she’s been through, Enid still has a gentle and compassionate side. She’s quick to comfort those who are hurting and eventually becomes a highly-valued doctor at Hilltop. Like Carl, she wants a life of authenticity where she can live according to her convictions. She tried to be hardened and cold, but ultimately with the help of Glenn, Carl, and Maggie, she was able to let her guard down and open up to the people she loves.

Dwight – ISTP

Dwight ISTP

Reserved and conflicted, Dwight tried to make the best of what seemed like an impossible situation. As a Savior he had a lot of inner turmoil over what he was forced to do but inevitably felt like he had no choice. Eventually he realizes that living under the thumb of Negan isn’t worth it and risks everything to make one last effort at redemption. He’s a complex character who is difficult to read. Like most ISTPs, he’s logical and analytical, but he also has a deep well of emotions that he rarely shows to anyone. When he does let his guard down, it’s clear that he’s more principled than people realized.

King Ezekiel – ENFJ

King Ezekiel ENFJ

King Ezekiel is a born leader with a gift for rhetoric and persuasion. He’s able to rally people to his cause and get them to believe in him. Like most ENFJs, he’s charismatic and ambitious, always working towards a greater goal. Yet he’s also a compassionate man who genuinely cares about the people under his care. He goes out of his way to help those who are struggling and makes sure they have what they need. Even when the world is at its darkest, Ezekiel never loses faith in the human capacity for good.

Jerry – ESFP

Jerry ESFP

Jerry is the life of the party at the Kingdom. No matter how hard things get, he’s always quick with a joke and a smile. He enjoys King Ezekiel’s grandiose speeches and is quick to support him and play along with the role he’s taken on. As an ESFP, Jerry is all about living in the moment and enjoying life to the fullest. He prioritizes fun, even going so far as to try to obtain lights for a movie theater so that the people at the Kingdom can lighten up and enjoy themselves.

Henry – INFP

Henry INFP

No matter how young Henry is, he never stops believing that he can make a difference in the world. Whether he’s seeking revenge or fighting to protect, he follows his heart without fail. While he doesn’t always take stock of what’s logical and can act rashly in the heat of emotion, he’s ultimately a good person. He has a strong sense of right and wrong and wants to see the world become a better place.

Alpha – ENTJ

Alpha ENTJ

As the leader of the Whisperers, Alpha is a strong and commanding presence. Though she’s likely a sociopath in some way, she still knows how to lead and make strong strategies that keep her 10 steps ahead of others. She’s unafraid of confrontation and will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. Like most ENTJs, Alpha is ambitious and isn’t afraid to try things in new ways to stay ahead – even if that means skinning zombies alive and wearing their faces as masks. She’s a truly terrifying individual, but also a fascinating one.

Lydia – ISFP

Lydia ISFP

Lydia is a survivor who has been through a lot in her life. Reserved and self-aware, she keeps many of her emotions close to the chest and is slow to trust others. Like most ISFPs, she’s not afraid to strike out on her own, especially if she doesn’t feel welcome or wanted where she’s at. She’s a gifted fighter, but she’s not interested in violence for violence’s sake. She just wants to protect the people she cares about even if it puts her own life at risk.

Siddiq – ISFJ

Siddiq ISFJ

Siddiq is the doctor of Alexandria and someone who consistently puts others before himself. Kind-hearted and pragmatic, he wants to help as many people as he can. When he first meets Rick and the group, he’s quick to offer his medical services. Like most ISFJs, Siddiq holds tightly to the lessons and convictions of his past. He wants to make his late mother proud by putting the zombies out of their misery. He wants to honor Carl by continuing to fight for a better future.

Alden – ENFJ

Alden ENFJ

When Alden is first introduced, we aren’t sure whether to trust him or not. As one of the saviors, Maggie is rightly suspicious of him. Yet over time he reveals himself to be a good man who simply found himself with the wrong crowd in order to survive. Like most ENFJs, Alden wants to live according to his convictions and values. He’s very loyal to Maggie’s cause and to protecting Hilltop. While he can certainly hold a grudge, he proves again and again that he cares deeply for protecting his people.

Georgie – INTJ

Georgie INTJ

There’s a frustrating trend in fictional typings where all kind or friendly people are typed as feelers, and all villains and antagonists are typed as thinkers. Georgie is often typed as an ENFJ because of her friendly nature and her ability to read people. However, I’m typing Georgie as an INTJ. Like most INTJs, her mind is on things of the future. In fact, she’s created a book called “A Key to the Future” which she extensively researched and formulated before the zombie apocalypse even took place. She believes that taking some risks, for example, approaching Hilltop at all, is worth it for the sake of the future she wants to build. Like most INTJs, Georgie is a gifted strategist and thinker. However, she’s not someone who is quick to anger or violence. She knows her best way to make a difference is by offering intelligence and information rather than picking up the sword and leading battles.

And as a side note, I want to re-state that thinkers can be kind and skilled with people and feelers can be unkind and socially awkward. Being a thinker or feeler doesn’t destine you to a life of kindness or unkindness.

In Georgie’s case, we also have to consider her age. As INTJs get older they start to develop their introverted feeling side more and can be highly astute at reading people and seeing past their facade to their true intentions.

Yumiko Okumoro – ESTJ

Yumiko Okumuro

Yumiko is a skilled fighter and a natural leader. She calls herself a planner, and was someone who, prior to the apocalypse, had a clear direction for her life. She prides herself on keeping a level head, and responds to life-or-death situations with authority, clarity, and a quick plan. Like most ESTJs, Yumiko is someone who takes charge in a crisis. She’s not afraid of hard work, and she knows that sometimes you have to make sacrifices for the greater good.

Luke – ENFP

Luke ENFP

An artist and musician at heart, Luke knows there’s more to life than battling and survival. He believes in the power of hope and human connection, and wants to find a way to bring beauty into the world even in the midst of darkness. Like most ENFPs, Luke is a gifted wordsmith and he’s quick to see the potential in people. He’s also someone who feels things deeply, and his compassion for others motivates him to fight for a better future.

Connie – ISFP

Connie ISFP

Connie is one of my favorite newer characters in the show, and it’s amazing to see deaf representation on such a popular series. Connie is a skilled fighter, and she’s fiercely loyal to her friends and younger sister. She’s also someone who feels things deeply, and she often responds to difficult situations with compassion and understanding. Like most ISFPs, Connie is highly attuned to her moral compass and what feels right or wrong to her. She’s also highly aware of her surroundings, often being the eyes of the group. She knows that sometimes the best way to help is simply by being present and offering support.

Magna – ISTP

Magna ISTP

Magna is a skilled survivor and an excellent fighter. She’s quick-thinking and resourceful, and she’s not afraid to take risks. Like most ISTPs, Magna is highly independent and doesn’t mind working alone. However, she’s also fiercely loyal to her friends, and she’s always looking out for their safety. Rules mean nothing to her if they’re going to get in the way of her doing what she knows is right or reasonable in her own mind. This often lands her in hot water with her friends who want her to be more cooperative.

  1. I think this was a great article! I agree with nearly all the typings apart from maybe a few, however I can definitely see the ones that I disagree with as actually being the types you said.

    1. I kind of see Shane personally as an ESFP, while I definitely see ESTP. It’s mainly because I see a clear Se and Te dynamic with his attitude to survival. I preferred ESFP over ENTJ because I think he’s definitely an Se dom. and I can kind of see Fi with his deep caring for Lori and Carl. Nevertheless, I can definitely see ESTP.

    2. I understand why Dale would be an ENFJ, but I kind of see him more as an INFP. I can definitely see him as an Fi dom., as he deeply cares and tirelessly lives by the moral values he holds dear, becoming feisty when the group goes against them. I can also see Ne with how he often looks at situations with many different angles, while seeing Si with his clear sense of duty, practicality and nostalgia for civilization. Finally, I thought the whole Randall situation kind of sums up his inferior Te and strong Fi, fighting for the values he holds dear over the very harsh yet disturbingly logical Te decision that Shane argues.

    3. Finally, I think Negan is an ENTJ rather than ENTP. Once again, he could be an ENTP and I can definitely see how he would be, but I seen him as an ENTJ, with his Te and Ni being shown when building and ruling the Sanctuary with great control, almost like a king, but in a different style to Ezekiel who is definitely an ENFJ. I can see Se with his love of action and then Fi with his complex emotional bonds with certain characters.

    These are only my personal views though, I can definitely see these characters as the types you argued. Really sorry for the long post, and once again, great article.
