Obi-Wan Kenobi – ISFJ

One of my favorite characters in all of Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi is a great example of the ISFJ personality type. Though he is not as stereotypically ISFJ as a character like Samwise Gamgee or Captain America, I do think that’s the best fit for him. Like many ISFJs, he’s quite comfortable working on his […]

Caleb Dume/Kanan Jarrus – ISTP

I love Kanan. He’s one of my favorite characters in Star Wars and also one of my two favorite Jedi (right up there with Obi-Wan Kenobi, who’s an ISFJ). Like several other Star Wars characters, Kanan’s personality type is ISTP. I love seeing this in a show or series since it gives us examples of […]

Leia Organa – ESTJ

“The general? To me, she’s royalty.” — Lor San Tekka One of Star War’s most beloved characters, Princess-General Leia Organa is surprisingly difficult to type. Most people say she’s an ESTJ or ENTJ but there is also a complelling case to be made that she’s an INFP like her brother Luke. I ultimately decided to […]

Padmé Amidala – ENFJ

Diplomacy is one of the greatest strengths of an NF type personality, and nowhere is that made more clear in Star Wars than by Padmé Amidala Naberrie. One of the defining aspects of her character is her constant insistence on trying to find peaceful, mutually beneficial resolutions to conflicts. Like many women, Padmé leads with […]

Yoda – INFJ

As someone who shows up in all three Star Wars trilogies, and as a key influence on several other main characters, Yoda is one of the most influential people within the Star Wars universe. He plays a unique role in the story, and it seems fitting that (as the only INFJ main character) he also […]

Ezra Bridger – ENFP

Unconventional, charming, and precocious, ENFPs make for some of the most compelling characters in fiction. They draw us into their stories much like they draw the characters around them into the causes they’re passionate about. There are several ENFPs in Star Wars, and Ezra Bridger is one of them. This young man from Lothal starts […]

Poe Dameron – ESTP

The son of two heroes of the Rebellion, Poe Dameron followed in his mother’s footsteps by becoming a pilot in the New Republic Defense Fleet. He rose to the rank of commander before he became frustrated with the Republic’s unwillingness to take action against the First Order and, at General Organa’s invitation, joined the Resistance. […]

Rose Tico – ISFJ

I wasn’t really sure how to type Rose, even after watching The Last Jedi three times. I knew she was an Introvert and possibly a Feeling type, but I didn’t settle on ISFJ until after reading Cobalt Squadron, which takes place immediately before TLJ. I’m so glad that Rose appears in a novel as well as in the […]

Luke Skywalker – INFP

Luke Skywalker is one of Star Wars’ most important and beloved characters. So it’s no wonder that fans are heavily invested in seeing him portrayed in a way that rings true for his personality. But what is the “right way” to portray Luke’s personality? Or, to put it in a way that reflects this blog’s theme, […]

Rey – ISTJ

When we first saw trailers for The Force Awakens, I was hoping the new character Rey would be an NT type. There are so few women of those types in fiction, especially as “light side” characters. It turns out, though, that she’s an amazing example of the ISTJ personality type, which is also one you don’t see […]
