ENFJ – Daenerys Targaryen

Many people with an ENFJ personality type are kings and queens. That’s because they are engaging, charismatic, and social people. They also excel at reading people and persuasive. It comes in handy for getting people to do what they want.

Think of it. Dany was in exile and, yes, her brother arranged her marriage to Drogo, but she took charge pretty quickly and never stopped gaining power and followers. The people who serve her love her and she took over places that needed a leader. She listened to the people and gave them what they wanted (breaker of chains, hello?).

And while ENFJs enjoy helping others, sometimes their intentions aren’t always selfless. Dany may have freed a lot of people, but she was stoked to gain so many armies and lands to rule to build her resume to take back Westeros.

INFJ –Jon Snow (Aegon Targaryen)

An INFJ personality believes their purpose in life is to help others. They tend to be soft-spoken but have strong convictions. They very rarely use their energy for personal gain; it’s always for the benefit of others.

Jon Snow is a perfect example of an INFJ because his life has been all about helping other people. He left the Starks to join the Night’s Watch because he knew it could be an opportunity for him to not only do good but also find his place in the world.

He became a significant asset to the Watch, training and helping his brothers develop their fighting skills. His avocation for the Wildlings coming south of the Wall rose eyebrows from some of his brothers, but it was all in the name for the greater good.

He quite literally puts other before himself time and time again and will stop at nothing to protect Westeros from the greater threat up north.
