HBO’s Game Of Thrones MBTI Personality Types

Jon Snow: ISFP (The Artist)

*With his fierce loyalty to his family and friends, his broody, moody, introverted, and individualistic nature, I don’t question the fact that Jon Snow is an Fi-dom (Introverted Feeling) dominant user. However, some fans think that he is an INFP, but I don’t see any Ne (Extroverted Intuition) auxiliary in him at all. He acts on his personal feelings and values the moment they are threatened by another. He’s pretty much a take immediate action kind of guy over a strategic, future planning, or analytical kind of warrior. I see Se (Extroverted Sensing) auxiliary in him, not Ne-aux.

He doesn’t consider the possibility that Theon might actually be sorry for his crimes and betraying Robb, considering the fact that he helped Sansa escape from Ramsay, like an Ne-auxiliary user would consider as a possible angle. Instead, he’s all, “The only reason I’m not killing you right now is because of what you did for her,” as he roughly pulls him up by the scruff of the neck close to his chest to get the message across intimidatingly. Jon’s also not a strategic lord commander, or warrior. His plans for going to war consist of gathering as big as possible of an army, and going all out head to head with his enemy, no matter how much larger their army may be than his. The line that “You know nothing, Jon Snow” defines his character really well because he bases all of his actions off of his gut feeling of the moment, and forgets to consider the future or past possible outcomes when he’s planning, so he’s not an Ne-auxiliary user. He’s an Se (Extroverted sensing) auxiliary user,

Nonetheless, Jon does use Ni-tertiary (Introvetrd Intuition). It shows in the way that he often falls into a doom and gloom mode of thinking whenever he has to put up with someone or something that he has not personally met or experienced for himself, and he is given the idea that they stand for everything that goes against his initial personal beliefs/ideas. Like, he sees the prospect of having to join the Night’s Watch as this terrible thing, but then he adapts and ultimately kind of comes to like.

Finally, Jon uses Te (Extroverted Thinking) inferior in the way he lashes out at other people whenever they try to confront him with his problems that he’s trying to avoid at the moment because he feels too incompentant and insecure to deal with them*

Daenereys Targaryen: ESFP (The Performer)

*Dany’s definitely a difficult one to type on GOT. On the one hand, her desire to rule the Seven Kingdoms, and strong leadership skills could easily be seen as Te-dom. However, she’s actually pretty concrete in her thinking style. She seems to have the future all put together in her head, but in actuality she doesn’t. She takes one day at a time, and processes her environment in the moment, like adaptating to the Dothraki lifestyle, and new cultures in general, relatively quickly, so I think she’s actually an Se-dom. He strong values of loyalty, freedom, and equality in human rights seem to point to Fi-auxiliary. She’s a decent strategist, which points to Te-tertiary, but not so great at following through, which seems to be Ni-inferior.*

Sansa Stark: ISFJ (The Nurturer)

*Sansa has grown up from bad past experiences with people, such as Joffrey, Littlefinger, and Ramsay, which means that her strongest cognitive function is Si-dominant (Introverted Sensing). When she’s using her Fe-auxiliary (Extroverted Feeling) function at her best, she’s making friends and allies, and encouraging people to fight adversity and be strong, like she did with Theon and Jon in S5-S6. However, when she’s using her Fe-aux at her worst, she’s being incredibly harsh, blunt, and cruel, like telling Theon that she “wished she could do what Ramsay did to him,” or calling Littlefinger out for being an idiot (which to be fair, he was) but the way in which she said that was incredibly harsh.

Sansa also uses Ti (Introverted Thinking) tertiary. Although her sense of internal logic gets her into trouble when she’s a little girl when she gets the idea in her head that it makes perfect sense that Joffrey is an ideal match for her, in spite of the fact that he threatened to murder her little sister right in front of her, she grows up, and learns to use her Ti-tertiary function with more common sense, like in protecting herself from Littlefinger.

Finally, Sansa uses Ne-inferior. She is very naive when the show starts, and she has this idea in her head that King’s Landing is this magical place that is so much better than her old, gray, and dreary home of Winterfell. Of course, she learns that she was dead wrong by the end of S1*

Arya Stark: ISFP (The Artist)

*Arya is an Fi-dom user. A lot of people think she is a Ti-user because she’s the typical tomboyish badass action heroine, but she’s driven by her personal values. She has a strong sense of self-identity, loyalty to her family, and she won’t kill anyone, who she believes is innocent, or those who already seem dead to her. We see that she’s very much an Se-auxiliary user because she lives in the present moment. She has that same sense of doom and gloom regarding new situations and people that she hasn’t adapted to yet that Jon does, so she’s an Ni-tertiary user. She also lashes out with blunt Te-inferior when other people try to make her confront personal problems that she feels too insecure to face herself, and would rather avoid.

Brandon “Bran” Stark: ISTP (The Mechanic)

*Although, now that he’s the Three Eyed Raven on the show as of S7, Bran has no personality at all anymore because D&D never gave a fuck about his character, but before that I think he was an ISTP because he listened to his own logic in regards to his dreams and ideas, which seems like Ti-dominant. He loved to climb, and could be pretty impulsive in his actions and choices, which seems Se-auxilary to me. He often had that same sense of doom and gloom regarding future prospects that made him feel uncomfortable, like Jon and Arya, which seemed like Ni-tertiary to me. He didn’t usually express his feelings, but when he did they came out in times in which he felt extreme guilt, stress, and loss, which seems like Fe-inferior to me.

Theon Greyjoy: ESTP (The Doer)

* He’s obviously an Se-dominant user because he’s super impulsive, indulgent in sensual pleasures, and quck to take action without hesitation. A lot of people think that he’s an ESFP because he seems to have one foot in the world of the Greyjoy house and one foot in the world of the Stark house, and he constantly conflicts over the two from S1-S2, which often seems to point to an Fi-dom/auxiliary type characteristic for a fictional character, as they are the ones, who often get pegged with identity centered character development/redemption arcs. But Theon’s entire internal conflict in S1-S2 deals with him rejecting his own personal feelings, values, and close emotional attachment to the Starks, or Robb, at the very least, so that he can do what he thinks makes more sense by making a name for himself with his biological family.

He very reluctantly goes against all of his personal values and close emotional attachment to Robb Stark, in spite of the fact that his own biological family treats him like total shit, and tries to be someone that he very obviously knows that he is not deep down, because he’s tired of being reminded that he’s not a Stark. In his mind, it makes no sense for him to love his glorified captors, even though he truly does in his heart deep down, because they treated him more kindly than his own family ever did, or at least Robb did. He advises Robb and Ned Stark to kill the dire wolf pups that they come across in the forest because their mother is dead, and in his head, it doesn’t make sense for creatures to survive, if they cannot be parented. This points to Ti-auxiliary (introverted thinking) detached analytical thinking, and Fe-tertiary (Extroverted Feeling) rejection.

He’s also way too openly expressive with his emotions to be an Fi-dom/aux user, in my opinion too, particularly after the living hell that Ramsay has put him through from S3-S5. Theon has a constant desire for approval, so this points to Fe (Extroverted Feeling) tertiary. He makes a lot of big plans, but he majorly lacks in the foresight to follow through with them successfully, so he’s Ni-inferior (introverted intuition inferior)*

Cersei Lannister: ESTJ (The Guardian)

*Cersei’s biggest goals in life are to have control and power over other people, so she’s clearly an unhealthy Te-dominant user. However, unlike her father, Tywin Lannister, who was an ENTJ (Ni-aux), Cersei is an Si-auxiliary user. She is motivated by what happened in the past. She uses past injustices as ways to vindicate other people. She also holds some irrational beliefs and feelings, like blaming Tyrion for her mother’s death when she gave birth to him, which seems like Ne-tertiary to me. Her unhealthy Fi-inferior is where we see her narcissistic tendencies, like her obsession with her children and Jaime, not as individual people themselves, but as extensions of herself*

Jaime Lannister: ESFP (The Performer)

*Most don’t argue that Jaime is an Se (Extroverted Sensing) dominant user with his impulsiveness, his talkativeness, and his good sense of hand-eye-coordination in physical activities, such as sword-fighting. However, I don’t see any Ti-auxiliary in him. Rather, I see Fi-auxiliary in him. His strong sense of devotion and loyalty to his family, his belief that he was his sword fighting hand back in S3 when he lost it, his belief that people can’t choose who they love, even if it’s this really creepy, toxic, gross, and completely unethical incestuous affair that he’s having with his biological twin sister, and his desire to generally act on what he feels is right, particularly when his personal values are threatened seems Fi-auxiliary to me.

He’s a great planner, and organizer of armies, but not so great at seeing his plans through, or forseeing the negative consequences, so Te (Extroverted thinking) tertiary, and Ni-inferior*

Tyrion Lannister: ENTP (The Visionary)

*Tyrion is an Ne-dominant user. Talkative, witty, philosophical, and analytical, there’s no doubt about that. He listens to his own logic, but not so much to others. He insists on staying in King’s Landing in spite of the fact that his sister is trying to kill him, and his lover, because he likes being smarter than everyone else, and being in charge, which is Ti-auxiliary. Nonetheless, he does really love Shae, and his older brother, Jaime. He wants his loved ones approval, which is Fe-tertiary. He also has a tendency to get caught up in past slights, and injustices, which seems like Si-inferior to me.*

There are more main characters, but I feel like Jon Snow, Daenereys Targaryen, Sansa, Arya, and Bran Stark, Theon Greyjoy, and Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion Lannister are the core main characters of the show.

LOL! This show was literally written by D&D with an audience of SP (Extroverted sensing) dominant/auxiliary users in mind. I’m an ISFP, like Jon Snow and Arya Stark, and the Se (Extroverted sensing) driven writing bugs even me, sometimes.
