    Default The Persona Series

    Video games fyi. Still, they've got like the most Jungian/enneagramic/socionic characters ever. For serious. Basically the games revolve around a group of characters out to save the world from falling apart in a way that involves dealing with personal crises of identity and self-awareness. The journey has as much to do with realizing things about themselves and overcoming them than just getting over this or that obstacle. It's like some incredibly trippy and cosmic reconciliation of who they are with how they live their lives, of recognizing the roles they play and the things they don't dare admit to themselves. I don't know who writes this shit, but they must be a fucking genius.

    Persona 4 I think the main character's friends are a seriously 7 enneagram and a whatever type tends to unhealthily rely on others to depend on them to derive a sense of self worth (I don't know enough to say for sure, but they seem to be ESFx, maybe?). The characters are so well written it makes my heart melt. This stuff would seriously be awesome material to type. Oh my god, it's so addictive.

    btw there's no way any of you know what I'm talking about. I was just like, "Oh snap!" and had to tell the world.

    GO JIRAYIA

    If no one else tries, Ill take a shot @ typing. I also encourage everyone to try it, Im playing the 4th and it is incredibly insightful/deep. In the game, in order to save other people, they must save themselves first. Its definitely not your typical rpg.

    haha, yeah, yosuke's my favorite character so far. Even in 3, I liked the magician arcana guy too. They seem to come off as Ne-dominant, maybe?

    IxE fo sho I think. He tries to be the logical one out of the bunch, but he obsesses over the girl he liked a lot that died. Damn awesome character.

    Others:

    Naoto: INTx? Maybe even ISTp, but less likely.
    Chie: ESFx. Naoto and Chie not being duals I think. They don't seem to conflict but they are just on totally different levels.
    Yukiko: IEI? maybe ILI.
    Kanji: SLE?
    Rise: SEI
    Teddy: SEI
    Ryotaro: LSE or SLE?
    Nanako: SEI/EII
    Ayane: EII
    Fox: ILI LOL JK

    Persona 3:
    Mitsuru Kirijo: LSx
    Akihiko: LSE but annoyingly "I must train to get better!"
    Junpei: hard core ESE, fan fave
    Shinjiro: SLE maybe
    Fuuka: Ni dominant
    Yukari: Alpha SF?

    You always remind me about these games...when I get a job and actually have some money to spend, I must have them.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    You're right some of those sound better for typings. WTG! And Gilly I'll punch you in the balls before you die if you never play these.
