    INTP - The Thinkers

    He is moody when around people, He gets into little childish tantrums when people touch or move his stuff, And it does look like he is Ti dominant
    I second this, I think Artie is definitely INTP. He often displays inferior Fe in his frequent grumpy moods and awkward emotional support moments with Claudia. Also, he rarely gives compliments or affection, but still deeply cares for the warehouse team.

    I often wonder if the creators of Warehouse 13 referenced MBTI because I can easily guess the types of the characters. There's also a lot of talk about Pete's "vibes" and Myka's "attention to detail".

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    I know the thread's been dead for a bit, but I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents.

    Myka - ISTJ, probably. She has a very decisive and linear method of thinking (J). She's very detail oriented and focused on the present moment (S). This would fit the ISTJ Si-dominance. She's all about the facts, and she uses those facts (ISTJs auxiliary is Te) to reach a conclusion. She's the get-down-to-business type. She's probably fairly balanced as far an I/E goes. But I think she leans a bit more towards introversion, if only because she really seems to treasure her alone-time so much.

    Pete - I think Pete might be an ENTP rather than an ENFP. As an ENTP I've noticed that many ENTPs and ENFPs act extremely similar. Because I'm an optimistic and high-energy ENTP (consistently typed as ENTP, though at first glance I might seem more F-ish) I end up relating to a lot of ENFP characters, but I think the cognitive functions of an ENFP just doesn't fit Pete right. Both types would put his dominant function as Ne, which is all very well and good since his "vibes" are basically hyper-amped extroverted intuition. But ENFP would put his auxiliary function as Fi, which doesn't sit right. It would mean Pete would constantly be measuring situations to his internal set of values and would make him significantly more open about his personal emotional issues than he is. When he's sad, he tends to hide it and doesn't talk about it and pretends to be happy and fine. As an ENTP, however, he would have auxiliary Ti, which would account for his random moments of inspired, spontaneous improvisations. His tertiary would be Fe, which would account for his personable demeanor (particularly in conjunction with his Ne), occasional flirtiness, and moderately sensitive ego. I'm not saying he's conclusively ENTP, but I think it's something to be seriously considered, since I see a lot of ENTPs and ENFPs behaving very similarly. I think Pete is a little tougher to type because his Ne is so hyper-inflated and he relies mostly on that rather than indicating any secondary use of Ti or Fi.

    Artie - INTP, hands down. He's probably the easiest to type of everyone. The INTP type would also explain his relationship with Claudia (and Pete), if they're both -NTPs. Mild annoyance with the E's enthusiasm, but enjoys the company anyway, counting for Artie's Father/Daughter relationship with Claudia.

    Claudia - ENTP as well. She's clearly a Rational, and fits the "Inventor" archetype really well. She spends most of her time combining artifacts to make something totally new and playing around with the computers and innovating the Warehouse, even when it pisses Artie off, because that's what she needs to do. She also fits the ENTP quirk of being "the most introverted of the extroverts" as a lot of ENTPs report being very quiet and introverted around new people/people they're uninterested in/unfamiliar with, in part due to S-dominant society being ill-equipped to deal with rapid-fire, "ADHD" Ne. (That's the Fe at work, perceiving the S's uncomfortable and often taken-aback reaction to blurting out the Ne/Ti brainstorming as the Ne/Ti ideas being unwelcome.) I think she and Pete are both ENTPs (which is why they get along like siblings so well) but Pete relies on his Ne-dominance while Claudia has a more equally developed Ti.

    Leena - INFJ. That psychic-ness is totally intution at work. I thought for a bit and decided INFJ rather than INFP because INFPs have dominant Fi and auxiliary Ne, while INFJs have dominant Ni and auxiliary Fe. Because she's more of an empathetic character, I think that might be the Fe at work rather than the Fi.

    Mrs. Frederick - INTJ. All the way. Very decisive and assertive, which makes me think J. Obviously a Thinker rather than a Feeler. Very, very future-oriented rather than in-the-moment, so probably an N. The NT would make her a Rational, which I think makes a lot of sense. But she's still very mysterious and keeps to herself, indicative of I. She's also got the INTJ stubbornness and butts heads with Artie frequently. This also makes sense as I rarely see many INTJs and INTPs getting along. They always seem to end up bickering, as the INTPs love debate for the sake of debate and could talk for hours once you get them going, and the INTJs are very to-the-point and just want the thing done already.

    H.G. Wells - ENTJ. She's obviously an NT Rational. What with building a time machine and everything. And I think she's too decisive to be an ENTP, though, despite the "Inventor" title. ENTPs are kind of notorious for leaving things open-ended or half-finished, and H.G. seems more dedicated to completing her goals. As an ENTJ, her dominant function would be Te, which makes sense as her first impulse in any situation is "Use your brain, Helena!" and she obviously prides herself on her intellect above all else. Her auxiliary function would be Ni, which would account for the NT-brainstorming connections that MBTI associates with inventing. I think the biggest hit that she's not an ENTP is that she's a planner, not an improviser. Js plan in advance, and Ps make it up as they go along.

    Steve Jinks - ISFJ sounds about right, to me. Dominant Si combined with auxiliary Fe would make him observant, detail-oriented, and highly attuned to other people, which would account for his superpower as the Human Lie Detector. The Si would notice all the little body-language signals for lying, and the Fe would tune him into other people and analyze the data as conclusively lying or telling the truth. Auxiliary Fe would also explain why he would we willing to sacrifice himself for the Regents' master plan to stop Sykes, due to the Fe pushing him to place others' needs ahead of his own.

    I would love if anyone could help me type MacPherson. I think he's leaning towards ESFJ in my head, but I can't be sure.

    Wow, this turned into a monster wall of text. Whoops.

    INFJ - The Protectors

    I love this thread. :)
    I agree with most of the types here listed here. It's strange how this is a very rational-dominated show, but I suppose the writers of science fiction often would be, wouldn't they?

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I agree with most of the typings

    But think claudia is more introverted....don't see her typed as the same as pete. More like one of the extroverted looking introverted types

    See I was going in the opposite direction: I thought she might be one of the more introverted-looking extroverts.

    Admittedly, I'm an introverted-looking ENTP as well (which would also make me a little biased, oops!) so I see Claudia and Pete as very similar, especially since they both always end up getting into trouble by messing around with the "cool new toys" they find. Especially since most of Claudia's inventions are made up on the fly of improvised artifacts, which strikes me as an Ne dominant thing.

    I also think the Claudia/Artie relationship highlights the differences between Ne/Ti and Ti/Ne pretty well: Claudia sees all of the stuff lying around the Warehouse and combines them to make totally new inventions (recklessly and while bypassing Artie's approval); Artie mostly just tries to maintain his "archaic" system (i.e. his protectiveness over his own computers and systems) and functions mostly as research and delegation for the team.

    Claudia also was locked in a mental ward for a while, which pretty clearly didn't do her any favors. She's also obviously uncomfortable being alone (has back-and-forth conversations with herself when alone, where Artie just kind of thinks aloud) and struggles with feelings of loneliness and isolation, while Artie was perfectly content in isolation and running the warehouse Grab, Bag, 'N' Tag sector entirely on his own for several years pre-series.

    WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IN FAR TOO MANY WORDS IS: I think Claudia is a maladjusted extrovert who comes off as introverted because her insecurity and overtly-blunt way of dealing with people, likely stemming from some disordered socialization she picked up during her long stay in the hospital. An environmental extrovert rather than a social extrovert (which is more Pete's style.)

    I also like ENP/ISJ teams, shhh!

    I might have to agree, Her whole episode with saving her brother does scream inferior Si, it isn't just an emotional outburst...she is reliving the past over and over again in her head trying to solve the problem...trying to change that one day

    Hate to bring up a necro'd thread, but I agree with all of these typings. Miraculous.
