My posts relates the all the books so if you haven't read Breaking Dawn stop reading now!

I'm thinking Bella is an INTJ. Why else would she have such a good shield?
Jasper is definitely an INFJ because he is so good at reading emothions.
Alice I'm thinking is an ENFP due to her sight seeing and party planning
Jacob is probably an ESFJ since he is always trying to keep the peace
Edward - Maybe an INTP??
Carlise and Esme are probably ENFJ's
I haven't really thought about Rosalie and Emmet.

Any other ideas?

Edward - INFJ (obsession with thought purity, Fe moral judgement)
Bella - INFP (ambivalent feelings, intense introspection)
Jacob - (E/I)SFJ (mechanical skills, commitment/loyalty)

I'm not so sure the characters in Twilight have a personality. Whats more is that it almost seems as if they were deliberately constructed to avoid personality. I'm guessing that the author wanted the characters to be a sort of blank slate into which the reader could insert their own fantasy (especially in the case of Bella). You do see a rather thin layer of character applied to the main love interests, but there really doesn't seem to be much dimension beyond their social standing and an associated theme. Its like the characters come in different "flavors", but don't really stand on their own as discrete personal entities. Edward for instance is "dark and mysterious loner" flavored, but there is nothing really going on beyond that, his "personality" is basically just a kind of pretty packaging in which to deliver romantic plot progression.

ISFP/J is more like it; her "good shield" would be her knight (Edward) in sparkly armor.

I think Bella is an INFJ because she's so emotional about Edward and Jacob.

Jasper ISTP

Alice ENFJ or ESFP

Jacob ESTP or ESFP or even ENFJ I just can't tell

Edward INTP or INFJ I can't tell

Carlisle INFJ

Esme INFJ

Rosalie ESTJ or ISTJ

Emmet ESTP

I am no expert on Twilight, but here goes:

Bella - ISFP, likes to think she is hard to understand. Also, TEENAGE FEMALE PROTAGONIST in a teenage fiction series on vampires. ISFP.

Jasper - INFJ, angry INFJ with deep seated convictions about the true nature of people. Lacks the social abilities of an S. Moody, can't adjust to the lifestyle, loner out of loners who is still super-empathetic.

Alice - ENFP. Anything is possible - the future keeps changing! Lets pour emotion into things to get reactions out of people. Also, I see everything as it unfolds because I am so Ne.

Jacob - ISTP. I fix things and fight and get annoyed with the system.

Edward - ESFJ. Loves his dad, driven by emotions, doesn't come up with an N insights outside of his plot device fairy mind-reading powers. And by plot, I mean I am being silly.

Carlisle - I am Atticus Finch. Also, ISFJ. Character, convictions, empathy, keeps things simple, family centered, a traditional, normal god-fearing vampire. Heh.

Esme - INFP. Love, concern, no force, not cold, doesn't do as much as an S would.

Rosalie - ESTP. I get what I want and turn heads. Fast cars, right?

Emmet - ESFP. Good natured and straight forward, cracks jokes and doesn't let things bog him down. Not cold and calculating, not overly logical or rational, and loves people.

All evil characters - INTJ. Just because.

I agree. The Twilight characters do not particularly seem have have traits we realistically see in life. As for Bella being INTJ, as suggested by quite a few people, I beg to differ. She seems like an introvert, but there is no evidence to suggest whether she is 'iNtuitive' or 'Sensing'. As for the 'thinking', I personally think she 'feels'... she does not follow by logic, or rather, she allows her overly intense feelings of romance for Edward cloud her judgement. In New Moon, Meyer specifically told us Bella couldn't even bear to utter Edward's name after Edward left her (and we should take into consideration that she had only met him for a few months before deciding he was her soulmate) - and that is when we ask ourselves whether she truly goes by radical mind. For the last letter, we have no idea what to place there.

Being an INTJ myself, I feel mildly insulted Meyer's little precious girl would even perhaps share the same personality. Where Bella Swan is overwhelmed by her feelings of romance, I prefer to think that we pursue our careers with intelligence, and tread the grounds of teenage love with a clear mind ( or as clear as we can keep it).

In their world, Ni seems not to exist...at least according to their ridiculous self-made emo teenie problems which result only out of their inability to get things and to find simple and appropriate solutions! All the drama...completely unneccesary!
That's the reason why these series annoys the crap out of me!

I've never read the books, but actors usually change a written characters personality a lot.

Kirsten Stewart is an ISTP, and Robert Pattinson is an INFP, according to

. This website tends to be right, and a little reflection on those two people in interviews will make those typings seem quite obvious.

Yeah i've had people compare me to BJ Nocak (Ryan from The Office among other things) and I didn't enjoy the comparison. I find most people are extra sensitive to praise or criticism of their same type, because so many of their flaws and strengths are ones you identify with.

I suppose an INTJ could weigh in on how they feel when Daniel Tosh received so much criticism for being an insensitive jackass for making rape jokes.

No but growing up in a pure sensor environment was HELL for me.
