    Fictional Typing: Animal Kingdom (TV Show)

    What are the Cody family’s MBTI types? And any other pertinent character on the show.

    I watch this show. I think there are a lot of sensors on the show, but really many of the characters are pretty unhealthy, which doesn't help with typing them. Pope seems like an ISTJ and Smurf an ISTP. Deran maybe an ISFJ. Craig seems like the extrovert in the family. I could see J being an INTJ. Nicky is possibly an ESFP, which might fit with Craig as well. Do you have any thoughts on their possible types?

    Using only MBTI understandings, I think Craig, Baz and Smurf are the only E types in the family (yes, I'm up to date).

    Smurf might be the only N type in the family, she is the only one that is really oriented mostly towards the "bigger picture" and "possibilities", the generic MBTI "N" things, everyone else is more focused on the S details (money, what do they get from it, what should be done in the "here and now" and this includes Josh.

    I think Craig might be the only F type in the family, they are very T-heavy in my opinion.

    Craig is also probably the only real P type in the family, everyone else including Deran is J from my perspective just to different degrees.

    Overall I think the above suggests something like:
    Baz - ESTJ.
    Craig - ESFP.
    Smurf - ENTJ.
    Josh - ISTJ.
    Pope - ISTJ.
    Deran - ISTJ (closer to P than Josh and Pope, but still a J type).

    Baz might be an N type, I can not recall so well.
    I think the above paints a picture of the family that is somewhat reflective of some generic MBTI stereotypes too where Smurf is the ENTJ leader of sorts and has a crew of ISTJ "henchmen" if you will which is basically how the situation actually is anyway.
    Josh is close to N but still leans more towards S in my opinion.

    I considered ENTJ for Smurf, but ENTJs usually have better leadership skills. They are better at rallying the troops. I feel like she leads more like a Steve Jobs type, i.e. judgmental, terse and opinionated, but people still listen to her, even if they don't like her, because of her expertise.

    It's harder for me to remember Baz's personality now too.

    So, what would you propose instead of ENTJ?

    It's cool. Even if you're caught up in the show, trust: Baz = ESTJ. Very obvious.
