    ISFP - The Artists

    MBTI types of characters from characters of Classic Literature:

    Jane - ISFP - Favorite literary heroine ever, and one of the first ones from fiction I really related to as an ISF/TP myself, though I feel Iíd be way more suspicious of Mr. Rochesterís bizarre behaviors and dark secrets than she is, and start badgering him with tons of questions about what the hell was really going on in the North tower, and threaten to leave if he didnít tell the truth and stop beating around the bush.

    Mr. Rochester - Unhealthy ENTJ with mild-moderate manic depressive, NPD, and histrionic traits, though he genuinely gets a lot better at the end and mellows out - I have such a love/hate relationship with this character! I know he was a controlling, deceitful, and somewhat manipulative ass who Jane deserved better than. But he still loved Jane for who she was, respected her intelligence, and generally speaking, thought he meant well in his own entitled and delusional way. Thatís not an excuse for his bad choices, or something that makes Jane obligated to forgive him or take him back, but itís impossible to not be incredibly sympathetic towards someone like him who has an unconsciously pathological self-sabotaging and damaging desire to control everyone and everything around him to run away from his problems and live a better life because he has no self-worth or control over his own life in his situation in life, and because Jane loves him itís hard to not to fall in love with him in spite of his flaws his anyway just like she does. I suppose Rochester is one of those problematic fictional characters who I just hate to love, even though Iíd never date or marry someone like him in real life either, but I can relate to a lot of aspects of his character. With Heathcliff and the Phantom I just loved to hate them because they were so good at being bad guys, though, admittedly, the Phantom had something of a redemptive moment at the end of TPOTO.

    Bertha - Sheís insane, and she has zero lines in the novel, so who knows? From Mr. Rochester description of her, though, which, admittedly may be somewhat biased and one-sided, Iíd guess unhealthy ESFP/ESTP. I know about Wild Saragossa Sea, and Iíve thought about reading it because Berthaís plight is tragic, though I doubt sheís completely blameless for their problems either. However, many people who have read it say that it completely ruined Rochesterís and Janeís characters, and Bertha still seemed like an underdeveloped caricature anyway.

    Mrs. Fairfax - ISTJ

    Adele - ESFP

    St. John (Sin Juhn) Rivers - Unhealthy and misanthropic INFJ

    Diana Rivers - ESFJ

    Mary Rivers - ISFJ

    Blanche Ingram - Snotty ESFJ

    Lady Ingram: Snotty ESTJ

    Richard Mason : There was never enough of his character for me to analyze, but Iím going to guess he possibly could have been an ISFJ because he cares about Rochester, and his sister, gets described as a pushover, and tries to put a stop to Rochesterís attempt to dupe Jane into a bigamous marriage.

    Wuthering Heights by Emily BrontŽ -

    Heathcliff - Unhealthy INTJ with traits of ASPD

    Catherine Earnshaw - Unhealthy ENFP with traits of NPD and mild manic depression

    Ellen ďNellyĒ Dean - Snarky ISFJ

    Hindley Earnshaw - Unhealthy ESTP with traits of alcoholism and NPD

    Isabella Linton - Naive INFP - Poor girl! I felt so sorry for her.

    Linton Heathcliff - ISFJ

    Catherine Linton - ESFJ

    Hareton Earnshaw - ISFP

    Edgar Linton - Cowardly, though loving and generally well-meaning ISFJ

    Anna Karenina:

    Anna Karenina - Unhealthy ENFJ with NPD traits

    Count Vronsky - ESTP

    Konstantin Levin - ISFJ

    Alexei Karenin - Unhealthy and socially/emotionally repressed ISTJ

    Stiva Oblonsky - Unhealthy ESTP with NPD traits

    The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux -

    Erik/The Phantom : Unhealthy INTJ with traits of manic depression, NPD, and some ASPD

    Christine Daať - Very naive ISFJ

    Raoul De Chagny - ISTJ

    Meg Giry - ESFP

    Madame Giry - ISTJ

    Gilles Andre and Richard Firmin - Idiotic ESFJs

    La Carlotta - Unhealthy ESFP with grandiose type NPD

    Iíve just started Gone With The Wind, and Iím not even halfway through yet, so I donít want the entire thing spoiled. However, so far I think Rhett and Scarlett are both ESTPs with NPD traits, Ashley Wilkes is an ISTJ, and Melanie Hamilton is an INFP.
