    The one that stood out to be the most was Luke as SLI, not too sure about the others. Maybe ESE for the mom and LII for the daughter, SEI for Sookie, and the parents Gamma stereotypes

    Alexis Bledel is LSI though.

    Agree with SEI for Sookie. Not sure about the mom. I could see Gamma>Delta for the parents.

    Which one was Luke? was that the mom's love interest? If so, I can definitely see SLI.

    The "bad boy" boyfriend (played by Milo Ventimiglia) -- I was between LII and SLI for Milo himself, leaning LII.

    OK, then she's SEI in the show.

    I just dont see SEI for her though. She speaks in a monotone verbal diarrhea, doesn't enunciate. She pretty, but I get soo bored watching her even on shows where she's a guest. I would think someone with creative Fe would be more expressive.

    Yeah, I agree. That's why I think Lauren Graham is the interesting one in the show. And she's prettier.

    Lorelai- ESE-Si
    Rory- Dualized LII-Ne
    Luke- Some Delta ST -- I think LSE-Si based on intertype relations with Lorelai
    What do these signs mean—, , etc.? Why cannot socionists use symbols Ne, Ni etc. as in MBTI? Just because they have somewhat different meaning. Socionics and MBTI, each in its own way, have slightly modified the original Jung's description of his 8 psychological types. For this reason, (Ne) is not exactly the same as Ne in MBTI.

    Just one example: in MBTI, Se (extraverted sensing) is associated with life pleasures, excitement etc. By contrast, the socionic function (extraverted sensing) is first and foremost associated with control and expansion of personal space (which sometimes can manifest in excessive aagression, but often also manifests in a capability of managing lots of people and things).

    For this reason, we consider comparison between MBTI types and socionic types by functions to be rather useless than useful.

    that show was boring to me. Lorelai seemed fag hag ish and interesting, but her daughter was boring as hell. What sort of goody goody does laundry that many hours a day? It felt unrealistic. Kids have a lot of problems facing practical realities like that, but she did it cheerfully. It was just weird.

    They never stop talking on that show. Like for real. Watch it and notice next time, they don't pause for more than 5 seconds without talking. I wouldn't know if it's a good show, it's too exhausting to watch.

    THANK YOU. I mean, they're both sort of hot, but still, I felt like I had to really settle down and concentrate to follow them talking. It's like getting caught in the middle of a gun fight.

    I think I watched 30 seconds and then turn off the TV. The series involves lots of Fi crap, as desperate housewives (yes, I realized that in less than 30 seconds). Mother: IEE Ne, Daughter ESI Se, Mother's boyfriend SLI Si.

    idk, my moms ILE and the only reason I even know about the show is because I had to watch it growing up until I had my 'TV time', and I see the show as primarily Alpha Fe, although rather an obnoxious use of Fe for comedies sake or something. Lots of fast talking and over-exaggerated expressions

    Perhaps I have typed the actors instead of the characters. Perhaps 30 seconds is not enough for grasping the characters' personalities. Perhaps Luke Skywalker should have joined the Dark Side.

    Noticed the same thing, and couldn't stand the show because of that. My wife watched it and I literally had to leave the room. It was literally non-stop blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...

    That talking is just very bad acting. I dont know if it was the script that forced things to be that way. I have noticed that Lauren Graham tends to do that in all her roles actually, not just Gilmore Girls. Dont' know about Alexis, haven't really seen any of her other films i dont think. In interviews she does. So i guess when you put them together, that's what you get.

    The korean friend also did that nonstop talk thing. The only decent acting was from Milo Ventimiglia. I totally fell in love with him on that show!!

    The incessant dialog is one of the show's trademarks. It's done purposefully.

    I don't know, you'd have to ask a fan. I suppose they think it is really cute and witty. I remember liking it at one point, very alpha Fe like Marie has mentioned, but it gets a bit much.

    Bumping this because its now available on Netflix and I used to LOVE this show (the earlier seasons, not really 6&7 those were the worst).

    Emily Gilmore - LSI, she has killer lines. A precursor to Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey.

    Lorelai - IEE. First I was convinced on SEE, because that would explain her hate and fear toward her mother Emily, her supervisor. But then it wouldn't be a duality with SLI Luke (as most people seem to type him), and they need to be duals. ILI is also possible for Luke though.

    Richard Gilmore - LIE, and a match for Emily. Their scenes are arguably the best.

    Rory eludes me. Definitely intuitive, and probably rational. I'm super drawn to her character, like everything she does is adorable to me. If you can't relate to an angelic type of female protagonist who wants to become a journalist then this show is probably very tedious to watch, and you would have no interest in the amusing side characters either. Plus the final seasons really tanked. But I totally identified with Rory's character and wanted all the same things at that age. I wonder if she's IEI with the benefit of a unique, very loving and open-minded upbringing, and that gives her the IJ-like stability?

    I'm replying to myself bc I was totally wrong here about the last seasons. I applied the general logic that shows deteriorate with seasons, but this show is amazing from beginning to end. If anyone disagrees, they are a raging sexist.

    Rory is EII? There is almost no Se in this show btw, as far as how I envision that information element in people. Most of the themes center on Fi/ Fe / Te and a ton of Si/Ne. Every quip is like a Ne/Si show case.

    Do you have fresh socks?

    Socks? I like socks, socks give me chops.

    What does that mean?

    I dont know it rhymmed.

    And so on and so forth every single episode. .zzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZzzzzzzzZZZZZZZ.

    Luke and Lorelai duality in terms of SLI and IEE. Luke is not wearing his (brand of) socks...

    Lmao at Rory as SEI. Do people here have any idea what the types are, or it's all just a free-for-all
    What's so bad with an introverted sensing feeler type "the mediator" for Rory?

    Also, I have no clue why I even have an opinion on this show I've never actually seen it ahaha!

    Fe valuing. Goes more with the 'rational' of other people. She snaps in one season after having conflicted with Logans dad. He is a stereotypical despicition of a LIE. That was not really difficult to see. Is often in conflict during like 7 (?) seasons with Paris (LSE imo), that happen along the lines of how Paris always plows through everything and everyone. Nobody has to get along with anybody, because of socionics, but if you have really watched it till the end it was rather obvious, that the specific Te attitude of these two rubbed her the wrong way. Ne didn't. I believe she is provided with Ne from her mother and I think Rory stabilizes her mother, providing her with Si, like Luke does.

Plus the final seasons really tanked. But I totally identified with Rory's character and wanted all the same things at that age. I wonder if she's IEI with the benefit of a unique, very loving and open-minded upbringing, and that gives her the IJ-like stability?
    It's not so definite for me. SEI and IEI are look alikes and Lorelai and Rory are sth. along Ne/Si axis. I already said I leaned more towards SEI.
    People can see Lorelai as the Ne base. Why not Lorelai providing her daughter with Ne?

    lmao @ the parody making fun of Rory (I think that's her name? Who cares anyway...) and how she did like a load of laundry almost every scene. I never watched the show much but I do remember that and how television without pity poked fun of her for it. It was like so in your face 'see, young adults can be responsible and Mary Sue-ish like Rory too' or something and it was sooo corny and over the top I just laughed. It's like... even more hilarious, you could like glue the laundry basket to her hands during a scene where no matter what she does she can't let go of it or something hahahahahahahaha.
