    I don't know. :] Rebekah is awesome, but I think that she is an ESFP. Ability to see other people's motives could be Inferior Ni.

    Unknown Personality

    Elena: INFJ

    When we first meet Elena, she's introspective and sad before of the death of her parents. However, as she begins to heal and the series progresses you can tell that she's still very introverted. When she confronts new information, she subjects it to her inner world first. That being said, I still think she extraverts with Feeling second. She puts a lot of energy into making sure the people around her are happy and literally protecting them, but she doesn't actually talk about how she's feeling much. I think rather she reflects in her inner world with Intuition to analyze what people say, what they are doing, pieces information together quickly then takes action to care for the people around her.

    Stefan: ISTJ

    It's hard to separate all the vampire inspired angst from his "real" personality. Supposedly, when Stefan was still human he was "popular, compassionate, chivalrous, studious" but that doesn't necessarily indicate one cognitive preference over the other. I think the writers probably wanted an obvious contrast in temperament with Stefan and his brother, she ISJ makes sense in that regard. But, I think Damon, once he stopped his blood binging should a lot of Te-Fi motivated self-control. Like his personal world centers around his Si-Fi and he uses Te to protect it, which, I think is evidenced by the way he tends to look more at the impersonal facts of a situation before making his decision about how to proceed than Elena does.

    Damon: ENTP

    In the beginning, Damon is set up as the devil-may-care antagonist. As the series deepens though, we see more of his Feeling side. I think that he Feels in an Extraverted way though, more than submitting situations to his personal Feeling ideals (Fi). Rather, he tries to protect and care for the people around him. Also, he's constantly pushing people to gauge their reactions and his quick to adapt to changing external situations. So, I think Extraverted Perception-dom for sure. Sensation vs. Intuition is less clear, but I think he's more likely to be Ne than Se. He doesn't deal with things by just reacting to information at face value; for example, he interprets things in patterns quickly to get a sense of information that's not really be said directly, which always leaves him rushing to save the day because he picked up on some danger that others didn't.

    Caroline: ESFJ

    Definitely Fe-dom. Caroline put so much energy into getting people to like her and maintaining her friendships and loyalties. She's also quick to assert her judgments about how the outer world should be running, ie organizing school events, giving advice, bossing around some boy, etc. There's very little Intuition with her too. She has a clear sense of how something should be and it takes her a lot of convincing to see around the corners of information to look at alternative perspectives.

    Jeremy: ISFP

    Jeremy like his sister, is very introverted, especially after the death of his parents. But, he doesn't really deal with it like Elena. For the most part, you can't really see it well, but I think the directors wanted to make him the "artsy loner" type. Like he draws, wears black hoodies and doesn't initially have many friends like Elena. But, he is very oriented towards Feeling. His Feeling however is not directive or goal-oriented in a that Elena's is, so I don't think he's an Fe user. He also seems more impulsive because he seems to take information more at face value than an Ne-user might. Like he constantly rushes into dangerous situations without much consideration for what other people say.

    Katherine: ESTP

    She comes off as ENTJ because "she always has a plan", but I don't see her being someone who follows linear, impersonal principles that make situations logical and predictable that way Te is really defined. I think she's way more stimulus oriented and adaptive to situations as they turn up. At best, she thinks on her feet with Ti in order to find the most logical solution out of many in order to benefit herself. That's why she's so crafty and calculated. Also, this may seem typists, but the reason Katherine left her home when she was human was because she had a child before marriage. This was in the 1400s, so that would have been highly taboo. I really can't a imagine a principled, logical ETJ getting herself into that kind of situation ;p. I imagine Katherine to be the type of person who intentionally likes to break the rules and push the limits in order to keep from being bored.

    INFP - The Idealists

    I am starting to wonder whether Elijah is NF rather than NT. He seems very moral. Not that an INTJ can't but he seems to have a well-developed Feeling function which seems to dominant him at times. I am curious. He is one of my favorite characters.

    I still don't see a strong argument for Caroline being a Fe-Si user in your description. In my opinion, what you described in your last sentence sounds like Fe-Ni.
    Plus I think that Elena is a huge Si user.

    To weigh in here - regarding Caroline, she is much too involved in the day to day and in the physical world. She is so bloody normal in all her pursuits. A major focus for her was being popular, pre vampire days. And, when she goes about fixing things - it is very much based in the here and now... cleaning up the body, making a casserole, picking a dress. Yes, she can access intuition... but, considering that she is an INFJ in your mind, could you honestly see her getting into MBTI? or any other theoretical pursuit? It kind of looks like it because she is talking about fantasy and supernatural creatures... but, those things really do exist in her world... so no theory there. She is great, and a great friend... but when she talks about motives to Stephan (or Klaus), they are all very tangible, or were so clearly explained in an earlier episode. I mean, even her "humanity" speech to Klaus... it is all regurgitated from divisions between human and vampires that have been talked about in prior shows, with a bit of self understanding thrown in there. She (post vampire conversion) is actually a lot like my ESFJ friend - wonderful, supportive, can keep up with an Ne conversation and bright and dependable. I couldn't even see Caroline liking a sci fi show... reality TV, soap operas, and a bead on what every one else is watching just to keep in the loop. And, they did a good job of making the difference between pre vamp being an insecure version of the type, and post vamp being a secure version... As the show goes on, her tertiary Ne develops more and more, and she becomes more interesting and starts to have a VERY mild version of that eccentricity associated with Ne - the whole interaction with the sword scene recently...

    However, I think that Elena is SUPPOSED to be INFJ, but that the writers of the show are strong S types... probably ISFJs, in general, so don't really know how to show dominant N in anyone. Her N shows up in things like keeping a diary, being a romantic, in general... So, Ni type is what they were aiming for, definitely. I also agree that her main characteristic is supposed to be protectiveness, which is why she elicites it so strongly in others...

    But Caroline is supposed to be the typical popular wannabe, who discovers herself... ESFJ. I think that her evolution looks the most "real" of all the characters, because that is what the writers know - someone who is similar to themselves...

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    Bonnie, I actually think is some sort of NF. Even early on in the show, she wasn't exactly into the whole popularity contest... she helps Caroline, but really, the only reason why she participates in any of the committees appears to be Caroline (didn't they deal with this in an earlier episode, where it was made clear that Caroline is the driving force of all the committees - crying if her friends don't help her?)... I would actually think ENFP... though she doesn't really dress like it. But, heh, aren't all ENFPs wiccan? Bonnie was really into the witchcraft even early on, and needed no convincing - Ne really actually seems to mesh with her. And, well, Fi as well...

    Damon - ENTP all the way. Very charming, very "means to an end," and that tertiary Fe means that he actually does notice how people feel and can decide whether or not to care... Plus, he "gets it" in a way that only ENTPs seem to - ENTPs and ENFPs are the ones who get the most clear image of a situation, and Damon always does seem to know exactly what needs to be done. He may or may not do it, but he really does seem to be the one with the solution. Actually kind of surprised, because Damon is actually a well done ENTP - that type is usually a hard one to pin down.

    Stephan - well, again, supposed to be an N (either Ne with Fi OR Fi with Ne - that is where the whole True Love is his mission in life + diary writing comes from), but crappily done. I think that he should have Te either in 3rd or 4th position, because that is where the ripper comes from. So, I would say some sort of dark, tortured INFP.

    @littleblackdress I didn't say Caroline is an INFJ, I think that she is an ENFJ. Are you saying that she is an ESFJ, because she reminds you of your friend? :] Funny.
    How is she supposed to be an ESFJ? I don't think that Julie Plec was writing characters looking at MBTI. Seriously? None of them are "supposed" to be anything, because writers wanted them to be more like real people - not flat characters with shallow personalities. Your whole description is based on what kind of person you think she supposed to be. :] I am sorry, but I believe that your typings are wrong.

    No, I am not saying that I am typing her as that BECAUSE she reminds me of my friend. In fact, I explained thoroughly why she is an S and not an N. I typed her first... then realized she reminded me of my friend. Whether or not you agree with my typing, could you please address the actual thought process that went into it? Do you see her delving into any sort of theory? Seriously? She is the least *theory* character in the show. And, whether I argue against ENFJ or INFJ it doesn't matter, since my argument is that there is no way that there is any N dominance.

    And, no, I don't think that the MBTI was in front of the writers, but, in writing, you do write what you know... and clearly the writer is N challenged. Please try and keep the debate theoretical and not personal, thanks :)
