Frequently overshadowed by more well-known studios such as Pixar and Disney, DreamWorks is the unsung genius behind several fan-favorite, childhood-defining films. DreamWorks movies tend not to be as big and over-the-top as that of Disney's, and DreamWorks certainly doesn't receive as much appreciation as it deserves.
This film company was the mastermind behind Shrek, the brilliance behind Wallace And Gromit, and the true genius that brought you How To Train Your Dragon.
It's time to give DreamWorks some appreciation. Let's take a look at some of the most iconic characters from the studio, their personalities and MBTI alignments, and see which one you'd be, based on your MBTI.
When considering iconic films that probably shaped your childhood, Spirit is far too often overlooked. Disregarding the recent Netflix series based on the film, this beautifully animated movie was heartwarming and unforgettable.
Spirit, the titular lead horse, went on a captivating journey in this film. Narrated by Matt Damon, Spirit broke the mold of several animated animal movies in favor of portraying the horses in a realistic way. Spirit was shown to have a personality identical to that of a INTJ; he had a strong sense of personal integrity and a drive to help others.
The Croods hit theaters in 2013. Following the lives and adventures of a family of cavemen and featuring an all-star cast that included Emma Stone and Nicholas Cage, the film was a significant success. Eep was the lead of the movie, and her storyline revolved around seeking change in her lifestyle and discovering a better world.
Nothing quite captures Eep's essence better than the description of a ENTJ; she was a strategic leader, motivated to organize a major change in her family's lives. She was the only one who saw the inefficiency of the caveman lifestyle and she conceptualized a new solution.
Toothless was unarguably the most iconic character to come from How To Train Your Dragon. The film was a massive hit, released in theaters in 2010 and quickly spawning a franchise of its own. Toothless is one of the most beloved characters that DreamWorks ever created.
Being a goofy, loving companion to Hiccup, Toothless' personality best fits the ISFJ category. This sweet, lovable dragon is at heart, a fierce protector. Toothless is practical, compassionate, and caring, as well as a wonderful caretaker.
In 2006, Bruce Willis and Steve Carell humorously starred in Over The Hedge, a film that was inspired by a simple little comic strip. The movie brought the characters and setting to life in a spectacular way, and Over The Hedge is often regarded as one of DreamWork's underrated gems.
RJ is best known for being a shamelessly opportunistic raccoon. He's the leader of the rest of the animals and thinks of himself as being quite superior. RJ fits the description of a ESFP; he is energetic and fun, as well as spontaneous and engaging.
Today, Shrek is still regarded as one of the best animated films ever made. Enjoyable for both children and adults alike, the film (and its multiple sequels) is a fun, entertaining watch. Fiona was a fiery red haired princess who lived in Far Far Away with her parents. That is, until a curse was cast on her, causing her to take the form of an ogre at twilight.
Fiona had a freshly complex, multidimensional personality. She was first portrayed as a stereotypical princess, but later on in the film, her true colors came to light. Fiona best fits the description of a INFP; she is loyal, independent, and an imaginative idealist.
Before he met Fiona, Shrek was just your typical swamp ogre who spent the majority of his time scaring villagers. As the film goes on, he meets his future best friends, Donkey and Puss in Boots, and of course, the love of his life, Fiona.
Shrek's evolution throughout the film series is undeniably an unforgettable one. He goes from living a lonely, solitary lifestyle to being a happy husband and father. Shrek has an ideal ENFP personality; he is energetic, warm, and passionate, as well as having a contagious enthusiasm.
Flushed Away was a 2006 film in which Hugh Jackman voiced the lead character, Roderick St. James. Roddy was portrayed as being ridiculously pampered and catered to by his owners, yet quite lonely. He lived a solitary lifestyle and was fairly isolated in the English apartment which he took up residence.
The film's concept revolved around Roddy's eventually rebelling against his wealthy family when he gets flushed down the toilet. He meets new friends and his true colors begin to come out. Roddy fits the description of a ISTP; he lives in the present moment and becomes quite cheerful and spontaneous.
Po's journey and evolution is certainly one of the most beloved and popular of any DreamWorks character. Living his early life as a modest, humble, and unrelentingly enthusiastic worker at his parents' noodle shop, Po set his sights on bigger dreams: kung fu.
Po was portrayed as being brave, gentle, and unwaveringly kind. He best suits the alignment of a INFJ, as he has a genuine passion and talent for helping others.
People's views and reactions to The Bee Movie still vary to this day, despite the fact that the film was released twelve years ago. The Bee Movie was and still is considered to be quite the anomaly, and it undeniably made its mark, disregarding how utterly strange and ludicrous it was.
Barry B. Benson was portrayed as being an unapologetic rebel. He grows tired of the mundane life of a bee and decides to dream bigger. He heads the big city and sets his sights on the exciting lifestyle of a human. Being an energetic thrill-seeker and brimming with unbridled ambition, Barry the Bee best fits the description of a ESTP.
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit was probably the most unique, quirky film that DreamWorks ever produced. It's a breath of fresh air, and was artfully crafted with claymation and stop-motion. Wallace was the main character of the film, along with his pet dog, Gromit.
Wallace was an inventor. He was a true INTP due to his analytical personality and philosophical demeanor.
