    Default Shameless (U.S. version)

    One of my favorite shows of recent years. I think it's actually better than the original U.K. version, with the exception of Justin Chatwin who isn't as good as James McAvoy as Steve. Typings?:

    Fiona -- EIE? or maybe Fi-something?
    Steve -- ... no idea
    Lip -- LSI?
    Ian -- IEI? not sure... would make sense considering
    Mickey -- SLE
    Veronica -- SLE
    Kev -- seems softhearted and fun-loving, but not sure... SEI?
    Frank -- SLE
    Monica -- IEI
    Sheila -- IEE? or I could actually see her as IEI... she's one of my favorites. Joan Cusack is brilliant.
    Karen -- Spiteful bitch.
    Mandy -- Beta introvert? I like her. Jane Levy seems IEI and played her character as such. Emma Greenwell, who took over the role for the second season, seems much more extroverted

    That's a lot of Betas. I'm not sure if it's just my own bias/my being generally terrible at Socionics, or the show is actually very Beta-heavy, lol

    I love the american shameless. I just don't think enough about socionics to have an opinion on types.

    Yeah, you're probably right. Better to just enjoy the show, haha.

    I agree it really is beta heavy.

    my typings of the characters:
    Fiona -- IEI
    Steve -- SLI
    Lip -- LSI or SLE
    Ian -- SEI
    Mickey -- SLE
    Veronica --
    Kev --
    Frank --
    Monica --
    Sheila -- IEI
    Karen --
    Mandy --

    not sure of the rest

    I really wish I can watch this show because I have seen the entire British version and I loved it.

    Frank Gallagher -- ILE > IEI
    Monica Gallagher -- IEI > SEI
    Fiona Gallagher -- ESI

    Philip (Lip) Gallagher -- SLE
    Ian Gallagher -- EIE
    Debbie Gallagher -- LSE
    Carl Gallagher -- ILI
    Liam Gallagher -- Too young to type.
    Peg Gallagher -- SLE
    Veronica Fischer -- SEE
    Kevin Ball (Kev) -- IEI
    Steve -- LIE
    Sheila Jackson -- SEI / IEE / IEI
    Karen Jackson -- IEI
    Jody Silverman -- SLI > LSI
    Mandy Malkovich -- LSI
    Mickey Malkovich -- LSI > SLE
    Jasmine Hollander -- SEE

    Sometimes the actor's sociotype comes through into the characters, making it more difficult to figure out. I'm pretty firm on the sociotype/intertypes of Fiona, Steve, Lip, Ian, Deb, Carl, Peg, Mandy, Veronica, Kev and Jody.

    Great TV show, makes me feel normal.
