A while ago there was a little craze for taking Myers Briggs personality test (I like this one) and working out which fictional characters have the same type as you. I’m INFP, so you can read mine here, but today I wanted to talk a bit about ISFPs!
My little sister is an ISFP, which means she favours Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, and Percieving. It’s a really interesting personality type.
ISFPs live in a colorful, sensual world, inspired by connections with people and ideas. ISFP personalities take joy in reinterpreting these connections, reinventing and experimenting with both themselves and new perspectives. No other type explores and experiments in this way more. This creates a sense of spontaneity, making ISFPs seem unpredictable, even to their close friends and loved ones
I had a look through this website to see which literary characters might share her type, and I wasn’t disappointed!
Edmund Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
When I took my test, I got Lucy! I’m feeling very secure in our sibling-ness right now.
Buttercup from The Princess Bride by William Goldman
Of all the characters in The Princess Bride, I think Buttercup has to be one of the nicest one to be matched with. Great job!
Cinna from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
While Cinna’s not the biggest character in The Hunger Games, he plays a really pivotal part in the story, and he is genuinely quite a wonderful person. I think this is one to be happy about!
Harry Potter from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
This probably means that you are going to be famous, change the world, and become the face of an international franchise. Oh, and you should watch out for bald, noseless men.
Legolas Greenleaf from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein
To be honest, this is the match I can understand the most for my sister. I know long, flowing locks, great height and proficiency for drawing blood aren’t really to do with personality type, but…
Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Book Thief is one of my all-time favourites, so obviously I’m thrilled to be related to a Liesel!
Soos Ramirez from Gravity Falls
I felt I would be failing my duty as a sister if I only found you lovely matches. So you’re Soos Ramirez, you’re welcome.
So, how about you? What’s your Myers Briggs type, and which fictional characters match up with you?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
