    That was my immediate reaction as well. Looks more phlegmatic to Freud's choleric, though.

    I count Dracula as the first real book I ever read, and still one of the best. If he's not a Beta, I'm following wherever he goes.

    Freud:



    Stoker:



    I'd say they're both Beta rationals; they both seem to showcase a characteristic appreciation for a sort of classic Aristocracy and its rational elements of refinement and composure overlaying implicit emotionality.

    Yeah, he does look like Hitler, the most obvious EIE there ever was.

    Freud - Ni-EIE
    Stoker - LSI, probably Se sub.

    I can sort of see the similarities between freud and stoker, but Stoker seems much burlier, much more ST in a physically aloof way. Freud's look is much less direct. I definitely buy Stoker as SLE or LSI though, or even another ST type. He basically looks ST to me, but people who know more about him could probably classify him into beta or delta.

    No he's 100% ENTp (taking a commanding post in a critical situation kind of ENTp)

    If so, I know his subtype:

    "Intuitive subtype (The Inventor): [...] Dynamic, talks rapidly, with many gestures. Frequently of stocky built, courageous appearance, whiskers (if a man). Great significance is attached to external appearance."

    Yeah, Stoker looks LxI to me. I wouldn't rule out LII entirely without knowing more, but based on V.I. I'd go with LSI.

    Stoker's Dracula is the only vampire story I find remotely interesting. Well, that and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They're the only ones I'm aware of who understand that vampires are not cool or romantic, they're just evil. Evil is not sexy.

    Duals don't look similar. It's a very useful observation that Freud and him look like identical twins, but it's not remotely an argument in favor of them being duals.

    Take any VI gallery, compare the faces of every type to that of it's dual and you'll notice that I'm right. Duals are among the combinations of types with the highest degree of intermediate facial dissimmilarity.

    I think he looks ESTj. He looks like he'd be a quick verbalizer, which ESTjs are.

    Beta rational was my guess. Although Dracula features a number of bizarre and scandalous matters (namely eroticism), in many ways, Dracula is a book that reinforces the conservative values of the Victorian period.

    I really don't think that Bram Stoker was an ST type, this is rather weird, ST types don't do the kind of literature Bram Stoker did, take Ernest Hemingway as an example of ST writer. When you read The Old Man and the Sea, you can really notice that it's a ST beta speaking. An E8.

    For me Bram Stoker was an EIE, pay close attention to the intense charge of romanticism that Dracula has. Bram Stoker seems surely an NF type. It has a lot of drama and strong emotions.

    For me Bram Stoker is EIE
    Based on that comparison with Freud, I was inclined to agree with this. I don't know nearly enough about the guy to make a typing with any degree of confidence, though.
