16 Personality Types as Game of Thrones Characters

INFP: Brandon Stark

Brandon Stark is a typical INFP. His presence is calming and he thinks outside the box. He is so removed the the real world he literally wargs into animals and, of course, Hodoor.

ENFP: Renly Baratheon

Renly Baratheon was an ENFP. He was friendly, enthusiastic and one of the more likeable characters in Game of Thrones. By hiring Brienne of Tarth as his female knight, he broke tradition, like an ENFP is likely to do.

INFJ: Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen was an INFJ. She had a mystical air about her that people found intiguing. She translated her vision to become Queen of the Seven Kingdoms into a carefully considered plan, and then took steps to execute it.

ENFJ: Queen Margaery Tyrell

Margaery Tyrell was a visionary ENFJ. She had a magnetic charm and knew how to work the people of King’s Landing. She wanted to help people and do good in the world.

INTP: Varys, the Spider

Varys was a typical INTP. He was knowledgeable and analytical, choosing to follow logic rather than loyalty. He wasn’t interested in leading but rather, he enjoyed pulling strings from the shadows.

ENTP: Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister is a classic ENTP. He is quick-witted and always thinks on his feet, which gets him out of some tricky situations. Tyrion is intelligent and innovative, always bringing fresh ideas to the table.

INTJ: Littlefinger (AKA Petyr Baelish)

Littlefinger was the ultimate INTJ. He strategized and used the various characters like pawns in his game to make his way to the top and he always had a back up plan.

ENTJ: Tywin Lannister

Tywin Lannister was an ENTJ. He was the richest and arguably most powerful person in the Seven Kingdoms. He was the one pulling the strings and giving the orders when his grandchildren were King.

ISFJ: Jorah Mormont

Jorah Mormont was an ISFJ. He was the most loyal character in Game of Thrones. When his betrayal was unveiled, he was so dedicated to Daenerys that he did all he could to win her back.

ESFJ: Sansa Stark

Sansa Stark, an ESFJ, was a naive woman who valued tradition and cared a lot about being liked. As she grew up, she becames very good at reading people and used this to her advantage.

ISTJ: Brienne of Tarth

Brienne of Tarth, an ISTJ, was bound by duty and saw through her task of returning the Stark sisters to their rightful home. She was balanced and sensible when faced with danger and crises.

ESTJ: Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister was an ESTJ. She was focused and directed all of her time and energy to becoming the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. She followed through with her promises…although that wasn’t exactly a good thing!

ISFP: Jon Snow

Jon Snow is an ISFP. He is sensual and highly in tune with his feelings and the natural world. This was shown when he turned his back on the Iron Throne and went beyond the wall with the wildlings, where he felt most comfortable.

ESFP: Oberyn Martell

Oberyn Martell was an ESFP. He was fun-loving and enjoyed being surrounded by people and laughter (particularly in the brothels!). He was one of the more energetic and passionate characters in Game of Thrones.

ISTP: Arya Stark

Arya Stark is a true ISTP. She doesn’t care about typical gender roles and she trained to be one of the best swordsmen in Westeros. She is stubborn and resilient which saw her through to the end.

ESTP: Jaime Lannister

Jaime Lannister was an ESTP. He was dynamic, bold and direct. But he was also impulsive, like when he killed the Mad King or pushed Brandon Stark out of the window.

The personality types of other Game of Thrones characters

There are some key personalities from Game of Thrones that are missing from the list above.

What was Joffrey’s personality type? Joffrey was the definition on an unhealthy ESFP. He was easily bored, unpredictable and unfocused. These unhealthy ESFP weaknesses that Joffrey radiates makes him the most disliked character in Game of Thrones.

What is Theon Greyjoy’s personality type? Theon Greyjoy was a clear ESFP all throughout Game of Thrones. He had typical ESFP traits at the start of the show, being energetic, practical and unpredictable when he betrayed the Stark family.

He experienced serious trauma at the hands of Ramsay Bolton (an unhealthy ESTP). This resulted in him losing his confidence which made him appear more introverted. Despite everyone’s true personality type staying the same over time, people reveal different aspects of their personality depending on their situation and stage of life.

Then you have The Hound and Bronn, both mercenaries and both typical ISTPs. They were resilient and adaptable, with neither worrying too much and usually moving in the direction of more money!

Then there’s Olenna Tyrell, an ENTJ, who is charismatic and strategic. The other Starks include Catelyn Stark, an ISFJ, Ned Stark, an ISTJ, and Robb Stark, an ESTJ.

And last but not least, there was Daenerys’ entourage; Misssandei, an ISFJ, Grey Worm, an ISTJ and Khal Drogo, an ESTP.

Perfect personality pairings of Game of Thrones characters

There aren’t exactly a lot of couples left by the end Game of Thrones! But we’ve looked at the perfect personality pairings throughout the series.

Jon Snow (ISFP) and Ygritte (ESTP) would be a great personality match on So Syncd.

So would Jaime Lannister (ESTP) and Brienne of Tarth (ISTJ). They have just the right amount of similarities to create a strong connection and just the right amount of differences to create a spark…if only Jaime wasn’t sleeping with his sister!
