Game of Thrones characters run the gamut of personalities. Let’s see how your favorite Game of Thrones characters fit into personality categories based on science!

Remember in high school when your guidance counselor came into one of your classes to talk to you about personality traits?

Mine came in during sixth period English class senior year to give us the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to help us determine what we should study in college. After answering a bunch of questions, the test identifies you as one of 16 personalities with variations of the letters E, I, N, S, T, F, P, and J.

Think of it as a Venn Diagram with letters, not sections.

According to Carl G. Jung, who developed psychological types, the source and direction of a person’s energy can be classified as extraverted (E) or introverted (I). A person perceives information either by sensing (S) or intuition (I). Then, a person processes information by either thinking (T) or feeling (F).

Isabel Briggs Myers, who studied Jung’s theories closely, developed the fourth psychological type, which is how a person applies the information he or she processed, judging (J) or perceiving (P).

NOTE: I am an ENFJ or a protagonist. One of the careers for this personality type happens to be a writer, so it looks like I’m the right track!

Since the final season of Game of Thrones is so tight-lipped, I wonder if we can find some hints as to what we can expect from our favorite characters based on their Myers Briggs personality type.

Since there are 16 Myers Briggs personalities, I’ll name one character for every personality.

Let’s dive in!
