    Default HBO Girls

    Has anybody seen this show? It just ended it's first season a week or two ago. Thoughts? Types?


    My take:


    Hannah - ENTp
    Marnie - Exxj
    Shoshana - ?
    Jessa - Ixxx
    Adam - ISTj maybe?

    Those types don't sound too out of the ballpark. I thought ILE for Hannah too but I wasn't too sure about it. Marnie is definitely a rational, not sure which one. She does seem sort of Se seeking though idk maybe that's simplifying her problems with her too soft bf on the show. EIE? Shoshana is almost too sort of stereotypical to type. Her character doesn't seem that well fleshed out. Jessa I could see as an irrational type, hard for me to pin down. Not sure on Adam. LSI could work I guess.

    Other people like Marnie's bf: eh idk maybe SEI
    his friend: ILE/SLE?

    Girls are SEI and learn to grow up into responsible ESE mothers or IEI crackheads.

    Ughhhhhh


    But thanks blackburry for answering. Those are pretty good typings, for some reason it's hard for me to type them except for Hannah.

    I don't think many of the characters in the show are Alpha, this is a fairly valuing show with themes. I would say Lena Dunham is probably IEE or SLI imo.

    Some people watch horror movies until they can't take any more. Last year I watched the first season of this show.

    These are pretty good (though I don't recognize a few of the names). I suggest the alternate typings:

    Hannah - ILE
    Marnie - EIE
    Ray - LII

    Marnie could be EIE.
    Ray could be ILE or LII.
    Hannah's totally SEI. She comes off Ne bc she rambles all the damn time and goes off on tangents but everything she says is so simplistic, I just don't see any intuition function in her. Adam's sterotypical Fi-polr ILE.

    Just bc it's about friendship doesn't make it delta-themed.
    Besides there's mixed delta and alpha types in show. So.

    Shoshanna is so amazing. I think I would bat for the other team when it comes to her.

    For some reason they're pretty difficult to type (and this show was relevant ages ago : p).

    Hannah - IEE
    Adam - ILI
    Charlie: EII
    Ray - ILE
    Shosanna - ESE
    Marnie- EIE (or LSE)
    Jessa - EP and not SEE

    I agree with:

    - Hannah as IEE (strong Delta NF vibes, but too comfortable with Se to be EII; more out there being hectic while an EII would sit back and listen more to her friends)
    - Shoshanna as ESE (obviously extratim since she talks an insane amount without losing energy; very capable, very aware of her effect on others' feelings, says nice things/is very tactful, devastated by accidentally wearing white to a surprise wedding)
    - Ray as Alpha NT, though I'd say LII over ILE since his Si seems pretty strong, he's not going around doing a million things, he used to be in philosophy grad school, loves kickin' back and reading, loves his peace and quiet, etc.
    - Jessa as EP--my guess is SLE as she seems to have strong Se and weak Fi.

    I don't think Marnie is an ethical type since any Fi/Fe ego would have known how much of a disaster singing at Charlie's startup celebration was going to be. I guess her vibe is more Delta ST to me than anything else. Not sure between LSE and SLI. Maybe LSE because she's more directive than most SLIs, but I feel like her goals are more SLI than LSE.

    I don't have strong feelings about Charlie. My brain does not want to type him. Maybe that's a sign that he is EII and I don't want to admit it. He's not around too much though.

    Adam is interesting. He spouts poetic stuff at random times. My gut has always said LSI for him, but he and Hannah don't feel like conflictors, so I'm not sure at all.
