    INFJ - The Protectors

    @JonathanG: After I wrote my post, I later thought about Daisy's type, and I did think about ISFP, and I think you're right. She doesn't seem terribly extroverted. I do see Fi in her. But then she gets oddly stubborn about how she wants things to be--like not marrying William and wanting more recognition from Mrs Patmore--that seems tert-Ni. I think you're right. I'm not too familiar with Type Six, even though that's my head fix, but she definitely does seem to be anxious like a Type Six, and she's not a wing 5. I don't really see much of a Type Two in her, though...

    And yay, I got O'Brien right! Yep, I think she's definitely in some kind of Si-Fi loop in season two.

    Also (and this is for anyone to freely answer), what about these characters, even though we haven't seen much of them? I have a few guesses (just MBTI--I'm not good enough yet at doing Enneagram types :P ):

    Gwen - INFx (I may be terribly biased here, though, because she's one of my favourite characters and I wish she came back to show off her secretarial skillz! ;D )
    Aunt Rosamund - ESTJ (she freaks me out. I feel like she constantly has something up her sleeve, like some hidden agenda or something)
    Mrs Patmore - ESxJ (she has this bossy Je-ness about her, but I can't tell whether it's with T or F! ;D )
    Ethel - ESFP
    Lavinia - IxFx
    Sir Richard - ENTJ

    I absolutely loved Gwen too and I loved her friendship with Sybil but I have a hard time typing her. Some kind of NF would make sense, I guess. And she needs to come back.

    Aunt Rosamund sounded ESTP to me. Really opportunistic, likes to keep her options open, advised Mary to pretend to be in love with Matthew until she knew for sure that Cora's baby was a boy or a girl, etc.

    I think Mrs Patmore is ESFJ. In season 2, she wants Daisy to marry William because that would make everyone happy. She thinks Daisy should sacrifice her values to please the group. It screams Fe to me.

    I agree about ESFP for Ethel.

    Lavinia is really hard to type since she was so undeveloped. She was more a plot device than anything else. I would say IxFJ 2w1 So/Sx.

    And I agree about Sir Richard. ENTJ 3w4 Sp/So

    INFJ - The Protectors

    I think Gwen's definitely an NF of some sort. Possibly an INFP? She wanted to go out and explore the opportunities available to women...that seems rather Ne to me.

    Hm...that's interesting about Aunt Rosamund. I kind of saw (unhealthy) Te as being more opportunistic and controlling, like she was. She rather liked controlling people...she's definitely some kind of ESTx though. :)

    Yeah, I see Mrs Patmore as an ESFJ, too. She can be really, really sweet, but can come out and be all mama bear on everyone, haha! And she seemed very skeptical of allowing Sybil to cook with her and Daisy, since she'd rather keep everyone in their place (Si?).

    Ethel's pretty much the stereotypical cinematic/TV ESFP that gets in trouble for just jumping into things without thinking through them.

    Agreed. I wish Lavinia's character had been more dimensional. She could have been a really interesting character, I think. *SPOILERS AHEAD* I feel like Fellowes could have really done something special with her character instead of just killing her off before she showed more of her personality. She does seem to be some sort of an Fe user, though. Like looking out for Matthew and wanting him to be happy even though it actually pained her.

    What about 8w7 for Sir Richard's gut fix? I don't know too much about Eights and Sevens, but from my understanding of Eight, when it's unhealthy, it's about controlling people, which he clearly loves to do. :P

    ISTJ - The Duty Fulfillers

    I actually thought Mary was an INTP, I haven't seen anyone ever type her as that except me, but I don't really buy the idea that she uses Se, because she doesn't live in the moment. The Pamuk thing was hardly consent, and other than that she's basically done nothing reckless at all. She is so observant and good at reading people/situations, and she spends like all of her time thinking. And couldn't her ice queen demeanour have to with having an inferior Fe? And she uses both Ne and Si, which would explain how she both can see that her situation as a woman in the society is unfair, but at the same time feels bound by traditional values.
    She's just so logical and pragmatic, but not into controlling people, and clearly intelligent. She gives me NT vibes. So yeah.

    Also, I don't know enneagram types that well, but out of curiosity what was the reason for Sybil as 9w8? Isn't 9 the peacemaker type? Sybil seems more invested in getting to do what she wants/be fulfilled as a person, than she is in everyone getting along. I thought she was maybe 3w4 or 4w3.

    ENFJ - The Givers

    Robert Crawley - ESFJ 2w3 Sp/So
    Cora Crawley - ISFJ 2w1 So/Sx
    Violet Crawley - ESTJ 1w2 So/Sp
    Mary Crawley - ESTP 3w4 Sx/Sp
    Edith Crawley - ISxJ 2w1 Sp/So
    Sybil Crawley - ENFP 9w8 Sx/So
    Matthew Crawley - INFP 6w5 So/Sx
    Isobel Crawley - ENFJ 2w3 So/Sx

    Charles Carson - ISTJ 1w2 So/Sp
    Elsie Hughes - ISFJ 1w2 So/Sp
    John Bates - ISFJ 2w1 So/Sx
    Sarah O'Brien - INTJ 6w7 Sp/So
    Thomas Barrow - ENTP 7w8 Sp/Sx
    William Mason - ISFP 6w7 So/Sx
    Anna Smith - INFJ 2w1 Sx/So
    Tom Branson - ENTP Counter-phobic 6w5 Sp/Sx
    I would agree with most of these except Mary, Isobel, and Carson. Mary strikes me as an Intuitive and definitely a J. I would say either an INTJ or ENTJ, But I'd be more inclined towards ENTJ. As for Isobel; take it from me, I'm your classic ENFJ 2w1 and I really could not connect with her character much at all. She does not strike me as an intuitive character, but more like a sensor. Definitely an extroverted feeler but not an ENFJ. I'm thinking more along the lines of an ESFJ. Now, Matthew's character strikes me more as an ENFJ, but I can understand why people think of him as an INFP. He does seem more "J" to me, though. As for Carson, I think of him more as an ESTJ than ISTJ. The guy would be exhausted in that job as an introvert. Not that an introvert couldn't make it work, but I get more of an extroverted vibe. Both the ESTJ and ISTJ descriptions seem to fit him, though.

    I agree with most of this, stopped watching after halfway through the 4th series though - so the characterizations could have gone a different way

    I think Sybil is an Fi user, most likely INFP. I have seen Mary typed as ISTP, why do you think ENTJ, out of curiosity?

    I think Isobel is so Fe dominant, its one of the things that annoys Violet!
