Are you more motivated in power and in getting the iron throne? Or are you more focused on breaking out of your genders stereotypes or your chosen path, and being free to live life your own way? Do you tend to be more focused on doing something for the tribe?
People are quick to judge the personality type of their favourite character. Most fictional characters have complex personalities that don’t always belong perfectly in any human character. Some characters change as different writers have different ideas for a character. Some people in a story come to be Mary Sues. A Mary Sue is a person who conveniently will always make the decision that will push the story forward.
In Game Of Thrones, you meet a myriad of different characters and the best thing about the series is most of those characters have clear personal motivations and interests that all make them very unique from one another. To know a persons personality type, you have to understand their motivation.
The Game Of Thrones Characters In Flow
I type people based on who they are in flow, what their key motivations and interests are, what they tend to be most confident in, and who they are when they are the most secure in themselves. I find this approach is more accurate than simply typing people based on their stereotypes and how they can appear in a specific setting or situation.
