the best friends you’ll never have

So while I’m still thinking about The Summer Before and what I want to say about it (thank god this site is just a hobby and I’m not a paid reviewer because I’d be fired), I decided to take a little detour into one of my weird hobbies: personality tests. I decided to do Myers-Briggs quizzes for each of the sitters. (I’m ENFP, by the way.)

The first sitter I did is, of course, Madame President, Kristin Amanda Thomas. For Kristy, when I took the test pretending to be her, I got:

ESTJ – “Administrator”. Much in touch with the external environment. Very responsible. Pillar of strength. 8.7% of total population.

Free Jung Personality Test (similar to Myers-Briggs/MBTI)

According to this website, ESTJs are:

organized, group oriented, focused, conventional, leader, emotionally stable, anal, attention seeking, planner, realistic, fearless, responsible, finisher, decisive, norm following, respects authority, punctual, hard working, stiff, self confident, thinks rules and regulations are important, follows the rules, clean, outgoing, social, content, does not like being alone, normal, regular, does not like weird or strange people / things – intolerant of differences, strict, disciplined, aggressive, assertive, content, happy, proper, formal, strict with self, meticulous, strong sense of purpose

and their best careers are:

executive, ceo, supervisor, business consultant, manager, strategist, financial planner, business person, office manager, public relations manager, international business specialist, business analyst, management consultant, operations manager, loan officer, lawyer, marketing, sports management, government employee, investment banker

I would say this is pretty accurate for Kristy, except that she has a pretty good sense of humor (perhaps not about herself, but in general) in the later books–maybe that’s just the Lerangis effect, though. I can definitely see her doing any of the careers suggested for ESTJs.

ha, I haven’t taken this since high school-I wound up as an ISFJ so I guess that makes me a Mary Anne. boo and bullfrogs.

I’m an INFP, so I guess that makes me like Dawn. Although I always pinned her as an XNFJ. And I thought Mallory would be an INFP. I also thought Claudia would be an ESFP or an ENFP.
But here’s what I think each of their types are. If you want explanations, just ask. :P
Kristy: ESTJ
Mary Anne: ISFJ
Stacey: ESFJ
Claudia: EXFP, leaning towards S
Dawn: XNFJ, leaning towards E
Logan: ESTP, maybe ESFP
Shannon: probably INFJ
Jessi: I don’t even know where to start. I barely read Jessi books, but I’m fairly certain she’s an FJ. Maybe an ISFJ or ESFJ?
Abby: ESTP
Mallory: INFP

@Mayday Grace, I’m very interested in your reasoning! If you haven’t read it, I did the rest of the sitters here: Some are the same as yours, some are different.
