Personality Types

A little while back, I discovered MBTI character charts for Divergent created by Christina Reads YA. MBTI stands for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. It’s a questionnaire that people can take, and it breaks them down into sixteen personality types based on you perceive and interact with the world. Here’s a link to a place where you can find out more about the personality types and take the quiz for free yourself: www.truity.com

I find the whole MBTI thing fascinating, so I decided to make one for the Kanin Chronicles (and I also included characters from the Trylle who make appearances in the Kanin series). I didn’t do a traditional chart, however, because I basically just wanted to see what the characters were, and there are over sixteen characters, so three types are repeated twice.

Without further ado, here’s is the MBTI chart for the Kanin Chronicles.

I should also note that none of the personality types are inherently good or bad, which is how sometimes “bad guys” can have positive qualities listed under their MBTI type.

According to the quiz I took, I personally was right on the line between INFP and INFJ, so I’m either an Idealist like Konstantin Black or an Counseler like Lisbet Ahlstrom. Which character would you be, according to the MBTI test?

If you haven’t preorderd Ice Kissed yet and you’d like to, here are some ways you can do it:

    What is Matt’s (Wendy’s host brother’s) mbti?

    • I never did one for him, but based on one I know about the personality types, I would say that he’s most likely either a INFJ or an ISFJ, with me leaning slightly more toward the INFJ.

    How did you get these types for them? I thought that some of them were more similar to other types.

  • I would like to know what the letters stand for in the upper right hand corner of each person. amantedeborah@yahoo.com
