    'Ello.

    What are the types for the characters on Freaks and Geeks?

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I’ll attempt to type each character every so often. I’ll begin with Lindsay:

    I thought she displayed extraverted feeling in the beginning of the season, but I noticed that she has trouble controlling it, and prefers to rationalize her problems, even though she might not always arrive at the best solution. She needs alone time (as evidenced by her relationship with Nick), loves reading (she drops references to Carl Sagan and Jack Kerouac, understands many of her assigned school books, and reads in her free time), and has an exceptional ability at trigonometry (she was first block in the mathletes).

    She has J confrontations with her P friends. She broke up the freak’s band by motivating Nick too much, always wants to complete her school work on schedule, constantly suggests doing something meaningful, complains about her friend’s laziness, makes quick decisions, and so on.

    She seems intuitive, especially during the episode when she smoked pot, denounced the existence of God because it was illogical, and suggested a crazy theory about people being part of a dog’s dream. She seems cynical and claims that all humans are unhappy and that she does not know who she is. One may argue that these thoughts are her reactions to her grandmother’s death and a part of mourning. On the other hand, she shows a similar cynicism with society and her parents, as displayed by her diary’s entries.

    My suggested archetype for Lindsay: INTJ

    Ken is the least seen main character. He communicates through heavy sarcasm, does not brag much, detects bullshit easily, does not fall in love easily, and hardly becomes upset. He is highly individualistic and down to earth. He is smart (ex. He hustled people in Quarters and knew the keg was not alcoholic) but does not apply himself to schoolwork. Ken seems content to sit alone, thinking and observing, until he makes an observation (mostly in the form of criticism or sarcasm).

    My suggested archetype for Ken: INTP

    I just started watching this show!
    I would say Lindsay's more of a feeler
    Agree Ken is an INTP
    Daniel- Esfp or Isfp
    Kim Kelly- estp?

    Can't really think of what the geeks might be.

    I thought that too. She seems to display extroverted feeling by reacting emotionally when someone attacks her intentions or values. On the other hand, she handled her emotions poorly in the beginning of the season, but appeared to mature each episode. She has a tendency to rationalize her problems after an emotional outburst and often solves her episode conundrum. She seems very empathetic toward other people, but is sometimes misinterpreted by others.

    INTJ:

    Dominant: Introverted Intuition
    Auxilliary: Extraverted Thinking
    Tertiary: Introverted Feeling

    Inferior: Extraverted Sensing

    INFJ:

    Dominant: Introverted Intuition
    Auxilliary: Extraverted Feeling
    Tertiary: Introverted Thinking

    Inferior: Extraverted Sensing



    Kim Kelly - I could see that. I've seen her typed as an ESTP and ENTP and ESFP, but I learn toward ESTP.

    I'm seeing a lot of different typing than I'd expect. This is what I've thought, having watched the series countless times over:

    Lindsey: INFJ (this seems certain to me)
    Kim: ESFP
    Daniel: ISFP
    Nick: INFP
    Ken: ISTP

    Sam: ISFJ
    Bill: INFP (comes off more as an INTP maybe, but F makes sense)
    Neil: ENTP

    Mom: ESFJ
    Dad: ISTJ

    Shaun: ESTP
    Gordon: INFP
    Harris: INTP
    Milly: ISFJ

    A lot of room for people to disagree, but I think this is pretty accurate.

    Ok just watched the first episode and thats all Ive seen. Lindsay is easily an F and most def an Fi. She knows when other people are being jerks and wont go along with others just for a laugh. She is def an Introvert. She is a I and F but i cant tell on the other two. Also she doesnt feel comforted comforming and feels misunderstood and she seems like she is thinking what an idiot inside her head which is an Fi thing as well as Ti I think but she doesnt have that Ti appeal. Im thinking INFP or ISFP and dont think INFJ but intj is a possibility but dont think that either. Also over rationalizing her feelings about things is an Fi Te thing but they arent as good at it. Im an INFP and I really feel like I have alot in common with her except I feel bad cause I was always too chicken to stand up for people even when they were assholes

    Sorry for resurrecting and old thread but they just put this up on Netflix and I've been watching it nonstop.

    I like your guesses. I have a few.
    I think Bill is definitely INTP.
    Harris seems very INTJ to me, based on the INFJs I know in real life.
    Daniel seems ESTP
    Lindsay doesn't seem like a feeler to me. But I don't know what she is.
    I agree with your Ken, Millie, Kim & Neil.
    The parents are definitely SJ's
    I'm not sure about Sam.
    Nick seems ENFP and so does the guidance counselor Jeff.
    I could see Gordon as an NF but not sure which.

    Changed my mind about Bill. I think he may be INFP. The last few episodes of the season, he became a lot more brooding.
