The 1995 film Clueless is a classic tale of a girl who makes over a fellow classmate, plays matchmaker, and ends up learning how to be nicer in the process. The film holds up super well and feels just as relevant in 2019 as it did when it was released. Many fans have seen it countless times, and while there have been more recent movies such
Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) and her friends and family are some of the coolest characters in a comedic film. Here are the MBTIs of the main characters in Clueless.
10 Christian: ESFP
Cher has a huge crush on Christian (Justin Walker) and she plots to get him to notice her and, hopefully, fall in love with her. That doesn't happen but the two do remain friends.
Christian's MBTI would be ESFP or "Enthusiastic Improviser." He's "friendly and expressive" like the personality type and also "sociable" and "optimistic." He's always down to go shopping with Cher or hang out for a movie night, and he's both chill and also super fashionable. He's more cultured than the other characters in this film and seems impressed by the statues and art that are in Cher's fabulous mansion.
9 Josh: INFJ
Josh (Paul Rudd) is one of the most well-known characters in Clueless. He used to be Cher's stepbrother and by the end of the movie, she realizes that she loves him. Thankfully, they end up together, and it's so sweet to watch.
Josh's MBTI is INFJ or "Insightful Visionary." He's "idealistic" and "quietly inspiring." Josh isn't going to be the center of attention, but that's okay because he wouldn't be comfortable with that at all. Josh is "loyal" and "compassionate." He's an intellectual, he loves learning and reading, and he's always there for Cher and her father. Even though he isn't technically part of Cher's family now since he's no longer her stepsibling, he still hangs out at her house and works for her dad.
8 Mr. Hall: INTJ
The beloved actor Wallace Shawn played Mr. Hall, the dorky teacher that Cher sets up with Mis Geist. He spends a lot of his days being totally confused about the antics of the high schoolers, and it seems like he's pretty frustrated.
Mr. Hall seems like an INTJ or "Objective Analyst." He's "calm" and "concise" and a really great teacher. He's also "task-focused" and finds it tough to have control of the class when everyone is on their cell phones or talking to each other or painting their nails during class.
7 Miss Geist: ISFJ
Miss Geist (Twink Caplan) is the adorable teacher at the high school that Cher and her friends go to. She's quirky and a bit dorky and, as Cher says, has a lot of lipstick on her teeth.
Miss Geist's MBTI would be ISFJ or "Practical Helper." She's got the "sensitive" part of this personality type down and seems like a kind person who is shy and quiet and a bit nervous in social situations. She's "patient" and "practical" as well.
6 Mel Horowitz: ENFJ
Dan Hedaya's Clueless character, Mel Horowitz is, in a word, terrifying. And that's why he's so great.
Cher's dad is an ENTJ or "Decisive Strategist." He's a lawyer who has ENTJs qualities like being "tough" and "fair" and also a "natural critic." He spends a lot of his time working, especially at home when he's on a tight deadline, and he's supposed to be following a healthy diet but it's tough for him to stick to it. He's a good father to Cher but in his own unique way. He's cool with her going out as long as she goes somewhere that is 20 minutes away (as he claims everywhere is 20 minutes away from their house) and he wants her to ask her teachers for higher grades. He's honestly going to be proud of her for begging for higher grades (rather than, you know, studying hard and getting them in the first place).
5 Murray: ENFJ
Murray (Donald Faison) loves wearing super baggy clothing as much as he loves his serious girlfriend Dionne. His MBTI would be ENFJ or "Compassionate Facilitator." ENFJs are "verbal" and "warm" and "loyal" which perfectly describes Murray since he's a great boyfriend to Dionne.
One of the funniest scenes in the movie is when he's getting his hair shaved at a party. According to Murray, he's "keeping it real" but according to Dionne, he's ruining their whole future since she won't know what to tell their grandkids after the yearbook photos come out. Murray is "people-oriented" and "energetic" and despite his love for Dionne, sometimes he just has to do what he has to do (like shaving his head).
4 Amber: ESTP
Amber (Elisa Donovan) is a fellow popular girl at school who Cher sees a lot of, but the two aren't really all that close. It seems like Amber would do anything to be more like Cher and she even wears the same dress that Cher has.
Amber has a fierce confidence and determination. Her MBTI would be ESTP or "Energetic Problem-Solver." She's "observant" (like when she copies Cher's dress) and also "active" and "fun loving." One of her most famous scenes is when she makes the "whatever" hand gesture and says about Cher, "Whatever! If she doesn't do her assignment, I can't do mine."
3 Tai: INFJ
The late Britanny Murphy did an amazing job playing Tai, the slightly grungy new student at the high school. Her MBTI is INFJ or "Insightful Visionary." She's a much more interesting person than Cher originally gives her credit for, and she's "loyal" and "holistic" and "committed."
When Cher gives her a makeover, Tai does her best to learn how to be popular and cool, but in the end, she's a kind person who is nice to people like Travis who Cher doesn't want to give the time of day to. She's friendly and is someone who will "encourage harmony" and would love to be friends with everyone.
2 Dionne: ESTP
Dionne (Stacey Dash) and Cher are the very best of friends. These two are so iconic that tons of people dress up as them for Halloween every year. Dionne is classy, stylish, and kind, and she doesn't let her boyfriend Murray call her "woman."
She's a confident person who demands respect. Her MBTI would be ESTP or "Energetic Problem-Solver." The official description says "They apply common sense and experience to problems, quickly analyzing what is wrong and then fixing it" which is what Dionne tends to do. A good example? When she gets Murray to start speaking more eloquently.
1 Cher Horowitz: ESTJ
Cher Horowitz sounds like an ESTJ or "Efficient Organizer." These are personality types who get people together and motivate them to work hard and do what needs to be done.
ESTJs are "outspoken" and "self-confident" and "assertive." Cher displays all of these qualities in her various endeavors: when she gives Tai a makeover and wants her to speak and dress better, when she sets up two teachers at her high school, and when she says that she can't drive in platforms. She even negotiates her grades and report cards like her dad taught her. Although Cher is fairly ditzy and full of herself for the majority of the movie, she does a lot of growing as a person, and learns to be more caring by the end credits.
