Which BoJack Horseman Character Are You?

BoJack Horseman, the Netflix original animated series, connects with viewers through its painfully relatable characters. Each one represents a different personality type and struggles with issues like depression, addiction, relationships, purpose, and more. Which character do you identify with most?

The Myers-Briggs Personality Types of the Characters

The Myers-Briggs system categorizes personalities into 16 types based on traits like introversion/extroversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving. Here’s a breakdown of some key characters:

BoJack Horseman: INFP

As an INFP (introverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiving), BoJack is idealistic and seeks deeper meaning, but struggles with loneliness, self-loathing, and reconciling his inner values with harsh realities. His introspection, moodiness, and caring nature underneath his bitterness peg him as an INFP.

Princess Carolyn: ESTJ

As BoJack’s agent and former girlfriend, Princess Carolyn constantly pushes him (and herself) to achieve goals and find satisfaction. With dominant extroverted thinking and sensing traits, her organized, determined, productive nature fits the ESTJ (extroverted, sensing, thinking, judging) type well.

Diane Nguyen: ENFJ

As an old friend of BoJack’s and his ghostwriter, Diane wants to see the good in people despite frequent disappointment. Her strong intuitive feeling traits as an ENFJ (extroverted, intuitive, feeling, judging) type lead her to connect deeply and strive to understand underlying motivations in herself and others.

Mr. Peanutbutter: ENFP

Ever cheerful, enthusiastic Mr. Peanutbutter provides a sunny contrast to BoJack’s gloom. As an ENFP (extroverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiving), he embraces possibility, comes up with new ideas, and tries to nudge BoJack out of his comfort zone–though he often misreads BoJack’s reactions.

Todd Chavez: INTP

Laidback and eccentric, Todd floats among schemes and ambitions without firm direction. His open-minded independence as an INTP (introverted, intuitive, thinking, perceiving) enables flexibility to pursue random interests. But he also struggles with follow-through and can seem unfocused or indifferent.

There are so many more rich characters—Gina, Sarah Lynn, Beatrice Horseman, Hollyhock, and others—each with dimensions audiences relate to.

Significance of Purpose: Why Does It Matter?

Why do personality tests and character comparisons matter? Because self-understanding allows us to have more compassion—both for ourselves and others. It’s easier to accept flaws or differences.

The show creators didn’t design one-dimensional characters just for entertainment. They hold up a mirror for us to recognize shared struggles—depression, damaged childhoods, relationships breaking under strain. We see choices and consequences play out, the inner turmoil behind actions. It makes us feel less alone.

Maybe next you can have friends or family guess which character you are and why! Sharing the personality types of characters shows we all deal with inner frustrations and projections. But there is also capacity for growth when we increase self-awareness with care and compassion.

How to Play?

  • Read detailed profiles for each major character. Decide which mirrors your own motivations, outlook, interactions with others, and challenges.
  • Ask friends who they think you’re most similar to. Other people sometimes recognize personality patterns in us that we miss ourselves. Ask them to explain why they chose that character for you.

The important thing is not the label itself, but the understanding it provides. Learning why certain characters resonate can reveal insights about your psyche and relationships. It’s about increasing self-awareness with compassion.

So embrace your inner BoJack, Diane, Mr Peanutbutter or whoever fits! Recognizing personality patterns—both the strengths and struggles—helps us accept ourselves. It also helps us understand loved ones who approach life differently.
