Character Personality Types
In an effort to get to know my characters I decided to use the Myers-Briggs personality types. Using it has made writing dialogue and actions much easier. You can see Mission Nasaru cast profiles here.
The Myers-Briggs Foundation breaks up personalities into 4 groups.
1) Extrovert or Introvert – Direction of energy, people, objects, ideas, and information.
2) Intuitive or Sensing – How you take in information.
3) Feeling or Thinking – Your style of decision making.
4) Perceiving or Judging – Type of lifestyle, planned, or go with the flow.
This method divides personalities into 16 different types.
- INTJ – The Architect
- INTP – The Logician
- ENTJ – The Commander
- ENTP – The Debater
- INFJ – The Advocate
- INFP – The Mediator
- ENFJ – The Protagonist
- ENFP – The Campaigner
- ISTJ – The Logician
- ISFJ – The Defender
- ESTJ – The Executive
- ESFJ – The Consul
- ISTP – The Virtuoso
- ESTP – The Douche bag
- ESFP – The Entertainer
I am not sure if I believe that these types are static. It seems to me that a persons type could change based on how the feel, high self esteem, or low self esteem, but that is my opinion.
As my comic develops characters personality types might change a bit. My hope is that this makes it simpler for the audience to get a feel for the cast.
