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... :tongue:

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. :crazy:

Thanks for participating :happy:

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 :tongue: . 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

Upon re-reading Mansfield Park I agree Fanny is a infp, an infj I think would have been a bit more vocal during some situations. I do wonder if her enneagram is 2 though.

^ She's definitely not a 4.....I don't relate to her much at all (I'm not so passive). I could see 9w1, maybe 2w1, but 2 seems an odd enneagram for an INFP. If she's a 2, then I think she's most likely ISFJ.

Okay, I read Mansfield Park again, as it's the one I was least familiar with.

I stand by Fanny being INFP - very convinced of it actually, but she's definitely a 9w1. She has rather high tert-Si also, maybe stuck in a Fi-Si loop (hence her high propensity to tears & fearfulness). I think her Ne is repressed (not very open to new experience, but when she finally gives in to it, she ends up liking it).

Mansfield Park
Fanny Price - INFP 9w1
Edmund Bertram - ENFJ 1w2
Henry Crawford - ESTP 7w6
Mary Crawford - ENTP 3 (wing?) She has a "levity" to her that says Pe to me, but definitely image conscious.

Mrs. Norris - ESFJ 2w3
Sir Thomas - ISTJ
Lady Bertram - ISFP?
Tom Bertram - ESFP
Maria Bertram - ESFJ?
Julia Bertram - ESxx ?

I've always really identified with Anne Elliot the most of all Austen characters, so I tend to type her as ISFJ. But the conversations with Benwick are very much the sort of things I'd do and say as well, so I don't think it's a stretch. But then I tend to flip on the S/N divide so maybe she's just quite close to that divide as well?

This is really interesting!!

The Jane Austen characters I love are Anne Elliot, Elinor Dashwood and Elizabeth Bennet. The characters I relate to most are Anne Elliot and Fanny Price.

I'm still trying to decide what my personality type is so it's good to find characters I can relate to :)

Let me begin by saying, I registered just so that I could post in this thread. Jane Eyre has been my favorite book since I was young -- I can still see so much of myself in her character that it's uncanny. If I was ever someone in a past life, it was definitely Jane. I agree completely with whoever said earlier (or maybe I read it in a different thread) that she was a clear INFP as a child but was forced to adopt some J characteristics in order to survive. Whether she actually transitions into a full INFJ (rather than just becoming less of a P) is open to argument. ;) Although I haven't been through anything nearly as traumatic, I've observed the same transition in myself over the years, allowing me to relate to her all the more.

Obsession with Jane Eyre aside, I also grew up on Jane Austen and still reread my favorites frequently. Having seen the films for all of these books, though, it's hard for me to separate my impression of the film characters from my original impression of the books. But I thought I would give it a try. :)

Well, I think Elizabeth Bennett is an INFJ probably, but Darcy is an ISTJ in my opinion.
