    Default Lord of the Rings characters

    I'm obsessed with Lord of the Rings (books and movies) and I'm curious to hear how you would type the characters.

    I think Gandalf is ENTp or INTj. Aragorn is probably ISTj. Other than that I have a difficult time typing them because they are so archetypal.

    I thought it had something to do with Christianity...
    "To become is just like falling asleep. You never know exactly when it happens, the transition, the magic, and you think, if you could only recall that exact moment of crossing the line then you would understand everything; you would see it all"

    I actually think all the Hobbits are E except for Sam. So Frodo would be an ENFp. Hm...I think Gandalf is also an E and he must be a P. Sam I think is
    I.
    Or in short, my list would be:

    Frodo: ENFp (in the book; movie Frodo seems more INFp)
    Gandalf: ENTp
    Sam: ISFj
    Aragorn: INTp
    Boromir: ESTj
    Bilbo: I don't know...
    Legolas: Not sure
    Meriadoc: ENFp
    Pippin: ESFp
    Gollum: yeah, no chance...there is more on him as Smeagol before he finds the ring in the book, but I would have to read up.

    But aren't there symbols from the collective unconscious? Of course he wouldn't have taken a conscious effort on it.

    Frodo seems INFP, Gandalf INTJ, Sam... ISFJ, maybe... what about ISFP?

    Interesting that people seem to think of Gandalf as an ENTp. Why is that?

    I do find that I am most interested in ENTp characters, and Gandalf certainly was my favorite...

    I think that the fact that Frodo is the ringbearer makes it appear as if he is I when he really isn't (because it is such a lonely role). I tend to think of movie Frodo as an ENFp. I'll watch tonight and report back :wink:

    No, Gandalf is absolutely not an INTJ. ENTp seems to fit him really well:

    A leader. He is a good organizer because he remarks potential possibilities in people and situations. If he is to wield power, he needs justification for it: why he must take that position, e.g. a critical situation that nobody else can deal with, assignment from the top.
    And I think Sam can't be anything but an ISFJ:

    He expresses love through actions rather than words; however, he does not like to invent tasks for himself and in everyday activities gladly submits to his partner’s will. At any time he can leave one task and switch to another, if his partner wishes him to. He may even sacrifice himself for society. For instance, in his family he can bear responsibility for all everyday material needs, when his partner performs a socially important position..

    Gandalf definitely is F, not T. Just look at how he relates to the other characters. He always tries to make the others feel secure etc. The only thing I'm sure of about Big G is that he's F.

    Nah... Gandalf's kind but he's not emotional. His actions are dictated by logic. T is my verdict.

    Also, he's not NT, because he bows to guidelines he finds ludicrous (That's the idea I get, anyway), and doesn't use his entire extent of powers to aid the good cause.

    Well, that sounds like good ole' intuitive advice, there.

    From what I've heard from other folks (as I am not a LotR fan), Gandalf is INTp. It's the whole "wise old wizard" thing, I guess.

    Talking to characters in a way they can relate to and making sure that everyone feels comfortable is a logical thing to do. It may be a strength of an S, but certainly other types could do it as well, especially intuitive types.

    I found yet again today that I have a very calming influence on people who are upset. It was kinda funny. We encountered what the real estate industry calls "hostile tennants" today. My boss, who I think is an ENFp, is very good with people, especially upset people. He wasn't able to calm her one bit... it took me about 3 minutes... and I'm not an F! lol

    And I think Sam can't be anything but an ISFJ
    Only an ISFJ could resist the power of the ring because they don't need rings to gain and exert their power. I always liked it that only a peaceful and humble hobbit, a minor creature in the scheme of things, could be trusted to resist and dispose of such an evil and powerful artifact as the ring.

    Hmmm... But Gandalf is not unemotional, he merely doesn't show them too much. He isn't thrown off or confused by emotion, either, and he does show them from time to time, like when he is talknig to Sarumann in and on Orthanc, or when he thinks Frodo dead in Moria, and when he thinks Frodo is chanceless and says "I've sent him to his doom". He has several emotional moments, he just shows them in a calm manner.
    On that basis, I'd be typed as a T, as well.

    But on that basis, T types could be typed F as well, no?

    He is either ENTp or INTp (I think ENTp). And hot Boromir is an F and not a T as I initially stated, which makes him an ESFj.

    I love the idea that Frodo is an ENFp! Even the smallest ENFp can change the course of the future!

    Gandalf is most definately INTp.

    Actually, yes he might be. This does not sound at all like him:

    Recharge. He needs to feel emotional enthusiasm and ardor, and thus needs permanent sensory and emotional "recharge". He is unable to supply it himself, so he depends a lot on his surrounding. If nobody feeds him with impressions and positive emotions (nobody can do it as well as his dual The Mediator) – he mopes about life, loses ability to work and taste for life.
    Ok, INTp then. Faramir is also INTp (my ESFp friend insists that he is her dual).

    In some ways, YES. But... in order to be logical one must be able to make decisions without allowing their emotions runs the show.

    Just because I'm a T doesn't mean that I don't look out for the best interests of others. It just makes sense to try to find win-win soultions. And people with a lot of power, such as Gandalf, must be responsible enough to look at a situation from other people's perspectives, especially people who they are leading.

    I also think that he could be an INTp...

    In all honesty though, I haven't seen those movies in sooooo long that my memory may not be serving me as well as I would like.

    Gandolf is an EII in my opinion. He is the respectable, confident, moral leader. His character was centered around his ethics. I could even see LII as an argument, but not as much.

    I really don't care what type Gandalf is, so don't accuse me of typing every cool character after myself, but I see similarities between Gandalf and myself that I do not see between Gandalf and my two good INTp friends. For the record, I am basing this off of the movies. I have finished reading all five LOTR books a few years back, but the memory is not fresh in my head, so the movies are as close as I can get.

    I still say he is ENTp.

    INFjs aren't really "leaders" at all.

    "^^ Lamar Hunt, EII"

    I'm not seeing anything in that "article" that would indicate him being an EII. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough...

    Ok, sorry, I think this is a little better:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamar_Hunt

    http://www.highbeam.com/library/doc0...=ip_almanac_hf



    He actually looks like a much older version of Darklord if you ask me.

    "Lamar Hunt, born August 2, 1932 in El Dorado, Arkansas, is one of the most influential sports promoters in the United States.

    The son of oil tycoon H. L. Hunt, Lamar Hunt is a 1956 graduate of The Hill School and Southern Methodist University with a B.S. degree in geology. A college football player and avid sports enthusiast, in 1959 he applied for an National Football League expansion franchise and was turned down. In response, Hunt helped organize the American Football League, which led to the creation of the Super Bowl (the name was coined by Hunt, who got inspiration from his daughter's super ball) and a merger between the leagues in 1970. These events helped shape professional football in the United States and are greatly responsible for its current popularity.

    In addition to football, Hunt has also been influential in soccer and tennis, and has contributed to the growth of those sports in the USA. He has been elected to the hall of fame in all three sports."

    What part of that sounds EII AT ALL!?

    Can we agree on anything?

    I found the full version of that article:

    "It was the size of a phone booth," Wilson recalls. "A very unpretentious office for a very unpretentious guy, not some big shot at all. I thought it was very refreshing."

    Adds Steadman: "There were times in the early years when we'd go to league meetings, and the word was that this would be the last one. But Lamar would come in with a detailed plan, lay out the things we had to do. By the time the meeting was over, everyone was pumped up and ready to go out and lose another million dollars!


    "He is totally unpretentious, sometimes to a fault," Steadman says. "There have been times when I've seen him rent a car and drive on unfamiliar free-ways when it really wouldn't cost that much to hire a car and driver. I've seen him get embarrassed when someone invites him to ride in their limo to a game or restaurant. That's just Lamar: a down-to-earth, good, caring person."
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!
