Thank you so much for adding so many, it's great to know more famous infjs:)

Just one question, I've seen a lot comments about CS. Lewis being an infp. I'm not sure myself if he's an infj or infp, are you? I love Alice in wonderland though, my favorite children's book of all times X

Why, thanks! I'm glad you liked it.

These typings are based on temperament theory, so it's not technically MBTI. (Notice my use of the name "Counselor" in place of the letter code). MBTI tends to lump both of the INFx types into one (INFP), while TT splits them up into two: the Counselor (INFJ) and the Healer (INFP). MBTI occasionally does recognize them, but usually gets them backwards. It doesn't surprise me that MBTI types Lewis as INFP.

At the risk of sounding arrogant, I am quite convinced that C.S. Lewis was a Counselor. But I didn't come up with that on my own. David Keirsey Jr., a typing expert in TT, originally typed him as a Counselor. Considering everything I knew about Lewis, it all made perfect sense. He's one of the best examples of a Counselor.

I also forgot to include Agatha Christie on my list. Sorry about that.

Will Graham, character from Hannibal series. His way of empathizing with serial killers, dissecting their values, figuring out patterns and symbolism and constructing and deconstructing "theories"... Also, how he is often inside his own head - his own inner at times seems stripped from emotions, abstract and symbolic. It's very Ni.

 
How he tried to act as if he was joining Hannibal's side just to catch him was also so INFJ.

Daniel Holden from Rectify is pretty hard to type, because he's had some very unique life experiences and damage, but I'm pretty sure he's INFx at least.

I'm in love with that show, that character, and that actor.

C.S. Lewis didn't write Alice in Wonderland - that was Lewis Carroll. :happy:

Lewis wrote The Chronicles of Narnia (my favorite children's book series).

Re: C.S. Lewis's MBTI type - I have no idea. lol

Me too. Honestly you have no idea, it's my favourite show ever.

And I'm pretty sure Daniel is more INFJ than INFP, too.
Everything about that show is outstanding. I wish more people would watch it. The last season was too short and I was sad. :unsure:

I think Daniel is INFJ too. He has some mannerisms and quirks that are similar to mine, which is unusual to see in a TV character.

I totally agree with Levy Mcgarden being an INFJ. I've always identified deeply with her. I feel like I keep seeing her typed as an ISTJ or an INTP which kind of bothers me. Just because she likes reading and writing does not automatically make her a "T" She appears to be deeply affected by people, things, and events. She also has a silly side (which is why she connects with Lucy so well) and she is not afraid to show her emotional side to others.

Raven does strike me more as an INTJ. She doesn't seem to be very comfortable when having to express her feelings and often comes across as cold to her peers. She frequently is able to read others and offer logical explanations to their struggles. She is put off by sudden changes in her surroundings and prefers to maintain control where she can.

My favorite INFJ in fiction is Michael Schofield from Prison Break. He's smart, empathetic... pretty much everything I strive to be.

From my stack of fantasy literature i have two favorites: One is Kahlan from the Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind ( together with Richard a very nice example of an INFJ/INTJ pair) and Marci from the Heartstrikers by Rachel Aaron. From an INTJ point of view are both characters a very nice example of the will, determination and resourcefulness of an INTJ mixed with the emotionality we INTJs unfortunately lack :sad:
