Okay, so I pretty much turned the Internet upside-down looking for a Lord of the Rings Personality Type Chart and I came up empty-handed. I was looking for something like the Star Wars Chart that recently went viral.
How is it even possible that personality types and Lord of The Rings have never come together in one chart? Crazy, right?
So I took my inspiration from Geek in Heels and decided to just go ahead and make my own. Similarly to her, I found hundreds of discussion boards discussing the personality types of the Lord of the Rings characters. Hours of research later, during which I combined popular Internet opinion with my own ideas, I could finally see my plan coming together. Eric even got inspired to work his Photoshop magic with it and voilà!
And now without further ado:

Not going to lie, I was pretty excited to share this.
Of course I have to offer all the usual disclaimers:
For the record I only made this for fun, so if you hate it , please don’t be Orcs about it!
I am certainly not an expert in psychology or personality types. I have been fascinated by the 16 Personality Types, the Keirsey Temperament Sorter and other personality tests for years. I usually test as an INFP, and I can still remember how surprised I was to see how accurate the results were the first time. Since then, I have had a lot of fun trying to guess or pestering friends and family to take the tests. I do realize this kind of thing is not everybody’s cup of tea, and that’s fine too, we can still be friends.
I am a devoted fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved Lord of the Ring’s stories, however, I am not claiming to be an expert regarding all the intricacies of each book, movie or character. I did base this chart primarily on the movie versions of the characters, in part because it seemed that’s what many others had already done. Also, please remember that the personality types often applied to more than one character, in those cases, it was simply editor’s choice for who to include in this chart, and again, I opted to go with more popular choices.
Whew, glad that’s over with. 😉
Now it’s your turn, go ahead and tell me which type you are!
