    Nice to see the other Jane Austen men typed, not just Darcy :D

    Sense and Sensibility:
    Elinor Dashwood - ISTJ
    Marianne Dashwood - ENFP
    Edward Ferris - ISFJ.
    Willoughby - an immature devious ENFP
    Colonel Brandon - INFJ

    Pride and Prejudice
    Elizabeth Bennett - agree with INFJ even though I think ENFPs claim her a lot.
    Mr. Darcy - INTJ

    Mansfield Park
    Fanny Price - INFJ
    Edmund Bertram - ENFJ mhmm :)
    Henry Crawford - ESTP
    Mary Crawford - ENTJ or ESTJ. Charming & manipulative.

    Emma
    Emma Woodhouse - She's tough. I don't personally see her as very intuitive, maybe esfp or estp.
    Mr. Knightly - ISTJ or ESTJ. He's in touch with his fi but he seems more of a man of duty. He does seem to have more fi around the end of the novel/movies.

    Northanger Abbey
    Catherine Morland - ISFP. She wasn't very structured at all. She's usually typed an infp but with the exception of daydreaming I never really saw it. Even the tpes of books she liked reminded me of an sp not nf.
    Henry Tilney - ENTJ enneagram ?

    Persuasion
    Anne Elliott - INFJ. Depending on the day I either see her as isfj or infj.
    Frederick Wentworth - ENTP or ENTJ.

    ^ I agree with Catherine Morland as ISFP. Definitely Se over Ne. If I recall correctly, she tends to appreciate things at face value (art, landscapes, books), and Mr Tilney has to explain underlying meanings to her.

    Why INFJ for Fanny Price & not INFP? Compare her to Anne Elliott, who seems clearly Fe-aux to me.

    Mr. Knightly - ISTJ or ESTJ

    I tend to agree....he is very concerned with propriety, but I wonder if ESFJ is not an option? Of course, he is very empathetic towards Miss Bates when Emma insults her, in a way that Fi people view feelings (taking them on as if they were his own). Throughout the novel he seems to grasp people's true feelings really well though. Tert & inferior Fi does not seem quite adequate for that...? But Austen usually writes ESFJs as VERY ridiculous...

    I need to re-read Emma (it's been awhile), but I have so many other books to read for the first time...

    isfj or esfj fits.My mind kept going back to his interactions with Emma and not his interactions with others. ESFJ fits the best.

    I can see Fanny either way. She's an infx for sure. The J & P trip me up. It's like Jane Eyre, when the character is young is a clear infp but with age and enduring harsh idiots they channel the J to survive.

    How do you see Anne as an infj or isfj? I want to say Anne's infj but I'm an infx so I am worried I'm projecting.

    ^ I see Anne as INFJ whenever I read it, but I can't remember why.

    Thanks for participating

    There are always people in threads brining up Jane Austen character types - WHERE ARE ALL OF YOU?! Get in here now!

    EDIT: Side tangent....I couldn't decide on Jane Eyre as INFP or INFJ until I read Charlotte Bronte's Villette. The heroine Lucy Snow is sooooo INFJ. Although I still find Jane Eyre INFJ-ish as times as an adult.

    I love her & her characters. I wonder if Elizabeth's enneagram is 4w3. I do believe she's a 4. I'm very new to enneagram but spent the summer devouring any books I could get on typology.

    Anne fits the typical isfj but her discussions with Benwick makes me see her as more intuitive.

    I love seeing which heroine my personality matches most ( I'm an infx, 4w5) and which hero would be a good fit. I'm a weird dork :P.

    I can't relate to Jane Austen heroines too much, because I am feisty, but not as dramatic or outgoing as her feisty characters, and the softer women are usually Js and very structured in a way I don't relate to. Maybe because Austen is like INxJ herself, she can make P woman seem a bit "silly".

    I actually relate to M. Darcy . I don't find his character "attractive" because of that....
    My favorite hero is probably Mr. Tilney or Mr. Knightly actually. Maybe because they are more "extroverted" and I tend to like that in men.

    A few random "lesser" characters....

    Pride & Prejudice:
    Mr. Wickham - ESTP

    Persuasion:
    Captain Benwick - INFP
