    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Make sure you start at the beginning, they aren't in order.

    Default Weeds

    Characters from the Showtime series Weeds. As I have not seen the 4th season yet, my typings cover only Seasons 1-3.

    Nancy Botwin: IEE
    Andy Botwin: ILE
    Silas Botwin: ?
    Shane Botwin: IEI
    Doug Wilson: ILE
    Celia Hodes: EIE
    Dean Hodes: LII
    Isabelle Hodes: EII ?
    Conrad Shepherd: SLI
    Heylia James: LSE, the motherly matriarch of "the business"
    Peter Scottson (DEA): LSI, initial mutual attraction with clear false compatibility
    Sanjay: EII

    Sounds about right. But I think Heylia is pretty blatantly a stereotypical Gamma; maybe LIE 8w7 sp/sx.

    I would say that Heylia has strong Se and is Si > Ni. She may seem like she has a Gamma business sense, but I think that is her ST pragmatic experiential business sense.

    I still cannot pin down the type of Silas.

    I was able to find some character bio info on Silas to hopefully pick up some impressions and here is what little I found:

    Silas, Nancy's oldest son, was traumatized by Judah's death, and takes it out on his mother and brother. Silas is impetuous and impulsive, and although always operating as though he knows everything, is extremely naive.

    During the series he has numerous bad break-ups with his girlfriends and constantly harasses Nancy about her job. Eventually he decides he too wants to be a drug dealer.
    Eldest son Silas may seem like your average hunky teenager, but when his mom, Nancy, desperately needed extra help in the sales department, he stepped up to the plate and surprised everyone with his green thumb and savvy sales technique. He even opened up the family business to a new and profitable demographic — seniors. That glaucoma won't cure itself!
    Strengths: -Great salesman

    Weaknesses:-
    Emotional attachments
    /Women

    Silas' story: Thinks he needs to prove he can take care of his family

    There are several things about Silas's type that are becoming clearer.
    1) Irrational > Rational
    2) Se > Si Values

    This narrows down Silas's types to IEI, SLE, ILI, SEE. Of which, ILI is the least plausible due to what is at least the lack of strong ego Te. By the same token, it does not appear that Silas shares identical relations with his brother Shane (IEI), who is more of a clear IEI. So I think that we are looking at either an SLE or SEE for Silas's type. Between these two, I am still trying to decide.

    Nancy SEE causal-determinist //i think she was IEE at the beginning of the show but i dont remember it that well to be sure, so heh
    Andy ESE vortical
    Silas ESI holographic
    Shane SLE holographic
    Doug ILE causal-determinist

    im pretty sure that's accurate. silas is a good representation of Fi leading imo. i think that cop shane met in the new season is a dialectical-algorithmic, probably EIE.
