Oh, ha! Well, hey, you could have just allowed me to believe that you wrote it, and let me be impressed by your mad summarizing skillz.

Hmmm... Yeah, I can see Seven as an ISTJ. Her way of thinking is extremely literal, and not just because she's unfamiliar with certain human sayings and figures of speech.

But the J is definitely there. She has strong opinions and is very decisive, and once she arrives at a decision, it's almost impossible to get her to change her mind. Ironically, even as a Borg, she's not great at "adapting" to new ideas.

Another one for VOY movie. I was musing on this just the other day (which of the post-TNG series would have made interesting movie). Also, INFJ.

Re: Voyager and MBTI

Eh, Ryva we share the same dominant function Ni.

And I've always strongly identified with 7. I know I have a Janeway fetish but I'm nothing like her, she's my silver screen goddess. 7 is my favorite ever Trek person.

Re: Voyager and MBTI

My guesses with explanations:

Janeway: ENFJ

Only an idealist could take the kind of ownership of the situation she did: I will get home, and I will not morally compromise.

Chakotay: ESTJ

People seem to be pegging him as an idealist but I peg him as a Guardian. He out of everybody wanted to settle down and accept the situation.

Tuvok: INTJ

Pretty much all Vulcans exlcuding T'Pol are INTJs.

Paris: ESFP

Also an easy one. A blatant Artisan who is also really extraverted and emotional.

Torres: ISTJ

It's difficult to be a Maquis and not be a Guardian of some sort considering their nesting instinct and their hard stance against idealism.

Kes: ENFP

Obvious Idealist.

Neelix: ESFJ

All of these are obvious except for the J-P distinction.

Doctor: ENTP

The hard attribute here is the N-S. He starts out as an 'S' then kind of moves toward 'N' as he realizes he can get people to treat him like a human. I suppose it's the same with moving from 'I' to 'E' as he refines his social subroutines.

Seven: ISTJ

INTJ is tempting but she is a super-conservative character.

Kim: ISTJ

ISTJ really is a common Star Trek character because it's the writers' go-to for the 'Costello'. The ISTJ is the ultimate straight man, and Chakotay does it for Janeway, Kim does it for Paris, and Seven does it for whoever she's in the room with.

ISTJs from other series:

Dr McCoy
Data
Worf
Garak
Sisko
O'Brien
Dukat
Winn
Trip
Reed

Both Seven and the Doctor are my favorite Trek characters of all time. (Although if Garak had been a series regular on DS9, he'd probably be my favorite instead.) They're both such great characters, and Ryan and Picardo played them so perfectly.

Also, Teacake, your avatars consistently crack me up.

Re: Voyager and MBTI

I love Seven and Doc, but feel more kindred spirit with Janeway and Tuvok. But identify most with B'Elanna, though we're nothing alike.

Re: Voyager and MBTI

You know I read all sorts of hate crap on this BBS about characters I adore and I just sit there like I'm zombied in front of trash television but when people dismiss 7 as nothing but a way of sexing up the show for ratings I am ENRAGED and I have to defend her. I feel very protective of the character.

I agree with this too, IMHO Seven's character development, her personal journey to humanness, could have been one of the wonders of the series. We got to see tiny glimpses of it, but I for one feel shortchanged because there wasn't more.

SAME HERE. Even though Jeri Ryan admits that the purpose of her infamous silver catsuit was to gain more viewers, there was more to Seven than that. She was a genuinely complex, interesting character. That much SHOULD be obvious to anyone who watched the show.

I get annoyed at character bashing in general. It's one thing to dislike a character, but to rant about them and use vulgar, hateful speech is just childish. Besides, I think every Trek character has at least some qualities to like, even if I'm not overly fond of them.

Re: Voyager and MBTI

I'm not sure how the exact types will fit each character, but IMO the following loose labels apply:

- Janeway - E
- Chakotay - I (likes solitude and vision quests)
- Tuvok - definitely an I
- Paris - definitely an E
- The Doctor - definitely an E again
- Neelix - another E
- Seven - an I, but mainly due to Borg programming. Her natural personality may have been an E, if she never was assimilated
- Kes - an I, IMO.
- Kim - an E. Likes to hang out and party a lot, not just with Tom or B'Elanna.
- B'Elanna - an I. Not as outgoing as her husband, and to some extent values privacy/solitude based on fear of not controlling her Klingon-esque temper.
