    Default Seinfeld personality types

    Along the same lines as the Simpson personality types, what personality types do you think the characters of Seinfeld have?

    Here is my take. One thing to be pointed out is that it's considerably harder to to discern introverted thinking in a tv show.

    Jerry Seinfeld- INTJ (in real life, he is known to be serious and disciplined.)
    Elaine Benes- ENFJ
    George Costanza- ISTP (with uncomfortably forced extraversion in certain social situations)
    Cosmo Kramer- INTP

    Kramer is definitely an INTP. He is the quintesssential underachieving slacker who frequently develops crazy, yet logical ideas.

    You know... it's funny. I think that the characters on Seinfeld are MORE charicature-like than, say, The Simpsons.

    As such, I think they're harder to type.

    I thought Jerry seemed more ENTJ (at least on the show).

    Nonono. Kramer's ENTP. And a great example of one, too.

    Interesting, people use to call me Kramer in high school. I love the way he opens doors though. hehehe

    I'd agree that he's an extrovert though

    That's what I first thought, too. However, Kramer is often reserved when it comes to talking about his life. Do you ever notice that we really don't know much about Kramer's past? In one episode, Jerry mentions that he's been trying to find out Kramer's name for the last ten years. I should really stop overanalyzing a fictional character. Too little is known.

    So all the main characters are N (including George)? I remember watching this show in middle school and I've always wondered why I felt that I could relate to the characters, even if it was on a very marginal level.

    I think it's possible that Kramer's an I, even though he behaves like an E. There are extremely shy and quiet extroverts, after all.

    You can see it from an image perspective. E's are more aware of how information can affect their image, so they actively discriminate on what they want to share. Kramer's motives for doing this doesn't seem like an introvert's motives.

    According to TypeLogic he's ENTP, and Seinfeld is ENTJ.
    With a friend like an ESFJ, who needs enemies?
