    Special Agent Dale Cooper - INFp (His Ni quite literally comes across in visions on the show. Also, he's basically Lynch, who's IEI)
    Sheriff Harry S. Truman - ISTj
    Shelly Johnson - ISFj
    Bobby Briggs - ENFp
    Benjamin Horne - ENTj
    Donna Hayward - INFj
    Audrey Horne - INTp?
    Norma Jennings - ???
    James Hurley - ISTp
    Big Ed Hurley - ???
    Pete Martell - ESFj
    Jocelyn Packard -???
    I had some fun with this...shouldn't be taken to seriously as these are TV show characters but those are just the impressions I got from them.

    I think Laura Palmer/Laura Palmer's cousin is some sort of alpha SF.

    I can't type characters; they have too many cross over personality traits.

    I haven't been looking out for types but Donna as infj jumps out as something I could get behind.
    Audrey is hilarious.

    Gosh i remember watching this and really enjoying it...until it got a bit creepy odd...over accentuated. But hmm... thinking about the characters... will think some more... they are just vague wafts of smoke in my head atm.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    Well the actor who plays Cooper is IEI. Also House MD is based on Holmes yet clearly not LSE as well.

    The roots are not the branches, Mr. Prissypants.
    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...

    Audrey is IEI as sin, IMO.

    Laura Palmer is an extrovert sensor IMO. ESE, SLE, SEE were my considerations.

    Until it got creepy and odd? Darling, it's David Lynch. It was creepy and odd from the first episode. You just didn't notice.

    Why? He expresses their characteristic tact and understated charisma fairly well, IMO, and seems to seek Ti from the local sheriff who is a stereotypical LSI-Ti. EIE could work too, I suppose, but the character seems very patient and laid back, especially for a detective rushing to close a murder mystery. His process is stereotypically Ni, focusing on the process of thinking and using round about, very unorthodox, quasi-mystical methods of opening his mind to put the pieces together in a way that makes sense. He seems to focus a lot on this kind of "self-programming" that I see in a lot of Ni egos.

    (ps: i remember si-creative described in some post as willingness to press on a matter or sth along those lines - made sense ime and observation. pps: i didn't say Dale is definitely based on Holmes, but there is a definite 'tip of the hat' to the character, as it were)

    no clue what you're on about with the rest of that post.
    I have no idea how that vague explanation relates to Si creative and I'm curious where that came from.

    - detail-focused (i don't want to spoil it for Lungs, but there are several scenes where he puts the pieces together through focusing on details)
    - ability and willingness to organize, take decisions and assign tasks: he practically takes charge at the local station (more Te i think)
    - i don't see why unorthodox is Ni/Se > Si/Ne when Ne implies thinking outside the box, so to speak
    - ability and willingness to FIX: he's not there to simply understand, but to fix, to find a solution
    OK so most of that stuff is just his job. Being in charge of the investigation, looking for clues, etc. All falls under his job, nothing to do with type.

    Re: his "methods," he does things to create a state of mind, using round about methods, not just looking at the "big picture" in terms of Ne, but focusing on the mental processes and incorporating seemingly meaningless rituals that set his mind state in the way that helps him piece things together. This is clearly an Internal, Dynamic, and Field-focused element: Ni.

    I'm not saying that unorthodox : Ni, I'm saying that his particular methods point to Ni.

    He's also very poised in communication, far beyond any Te type, and seems to place a good deal of emphasis on self-presentation and composure: Fe.

    interrresting.
    i've only seen the pilot and the first episode now so far but i wouldn't have thought iei for dale, for what are probably superficial reasons.
    idk, he seems pretty rigid?
    "a hotel that is reasonably priced" "reasonably priced" "reasonably priced" "this hotel is reasonably priced" lol
    i wonder how my opinion will develop as i watch more. he's a cool character.

    gilly, do you mind saying more about this "self-programming" thing?

    This is just completely false. Learn Socionics before trying to tell me I'm wrong. Do some actual research and then we can talk, until then you are just pissing me off and wasting my time.

    I could consider a type other than estj for Dale - just not Te-polr. Dale goes so far as to overstep his job 'description' in several episodes (not giving details for fear of spoiling the show for others).
    ...none of which has anything to do with Te.

    Umm...I'm changing my typing of Audrey to IEI. Also, in my defense for Cooper being IEI, most of this was just based on the fact that Lynch is IEI and also that he very OBVIOUSLY intuits almost everything that happens and uses sort of mystical ways of getting at the truth...that's why he's such an unorthodox detective. I suppose I could also see him being EIE instead of IEI...but there's definitely a heavy amount of Ni displayed in the show, particularly through Cooper...but, again, I realize these are just TV characters...

    Audrey Horne is definitely my favorite. I think EIE for her. 3w4 sx/sp too.

    Something Ni heavy for Dale Cooper.

    Laura Palmer: ESE
    Donna Hayward: ESI
    Bobby Briggs: SLE
    Benjamin Horne: LIE
