    INTJ - The Scientists

    Love the original show (so glad someone's doing this, haha!) - hate the remake movies (so, I'm not going off of those in my analysis).

    Gomez: I've heard decent arguments for ENFP. His train fetish, among others, seems very inferior S in nature (I couldn't resist).
    Morticia: I'm not sure, but for a while, I've suspected ISFP...Definitely not an extravert and definitely has Ni above inferior. If there's one element of her personality that is the least defining, it would be Te.
    Wednesday: INXJ? So young, I'm not sure about the auxiliary, at least on the 1964 show (the movies paint her to be more strategical and Te-like). Since the actress comes off as an Fe type IRL, I'd be more comfortable going with INFJ for the TV character.
    Pugsley: ESFP? Seems Se dominant in focus, anyhow (focuses on the physical a lot from what I recall), and rather self-referencing and feelingsy (his T side isn't all that evident, while his N side seems almost non-existent, lol).
    Fester: He always annoyed the crap out of me, ROFL, but anyhow, I would say ENTP, down to some behavioral stereotypes.
    Lurch: Well, considering he doesn't talk, I can't say much, other than he seems like an F type (probably Fi if you catch my drift, LOL)
    Thing: Ummm...Se dominant, haha!

    I haven't seen Eudora, so I can't go anywhere there.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    I can't really say I'm too sure of Morticia's type, but I'm still kind of leaning towards someone Fi (ISFP?) - in fact, that whole show's concept does not seem very Fe-oriented to begin with, since goes against the grain so much. I dunno, both parents seem very much like those kinds who have strong expectations for their kids, but you never really know what they are - the moving to the beat of their own drum stuff going on with them is almost too undeniably Fi, I think (an Fe Addams Family would be, maybe kind of boring - the irony might be lost on it too much, because then, the unordinary would just become "their ordinary" - it might become this annoyingly preachy "that's not what this family is all about" kind of deal you get on 7th Heaven or something. If anyone in that family (sans the butler and auxiliary characters like the annoying Fester guy, lol) were Fe, you might get a lot of inter-familial conflict that would turn this mere sitcom into something needlessly melodramatic.

    INFP - The Idealists

    Gomez: ENFP?
    Morticia: ISFP?
    Wednesday: INTP
    Wednesday is NOT an INTJ. She is very monotone, sarcastic, and deadpan. She's very calm. INTJs are neurotic as hell. Stereotyped, they have a quick temper and are always worried (Don't get me wrong I love INTJs! :D )
    But she definitely has that stereotypical INTP goth- girl personality. Much like Daria, and Raven from Teen Titans. They are also both INTPs.

    Pugsley: ISTP

    Daria is probably closer to INFP than INTP. Don't really know that character's type though. I mean, she has the whole archetypal "the world never lives up to me" thing going on that's common with inferior Te types (due to high egotism around their subjective ideals - Fi). INTJ isn't out-of-the-question, but she's so incredibly judgmental, it's almost inconceivable that such a character could lead with perception (as in, she's always stuck in her judgments and never tries to find a way out - I would think a real perception dominant would actually use their judgments toward the means of novel perception, not the other way around, unless they were like, super depressed or something). I don't get the idea that she really "owns" intuition - she uses it negatively enough to suggest it's possible that she doesn't. I'm definitely coming from the Jungian perspective on this and not the MBTI one.

    I generally don't like typing characters on sitoms, because you seldom get an authentic picture of them - they're very much oriented with the actions of the episode. Anything I said about the Addams Family is a guess extraordinaire, other than I'm rather confident that it reflects Fi more than Fe.

    I don't think Daria can be blamed for being how she was. I mean, some of the people she was surrounded by were kind of ridiculous. She had values and standards but she didn't necessarily snob her nose at them. She thought a lot of them were shallow and stupid (which they were, hahaha) but she still interacted with them on a regular basis. Her sarcasm was more of a coping mechanism in having to deal with those kind of people than being mean. She wasn't horribly negative or judgemental. She did what any normal teen with a brain would act in the situation she was in.
