As big fans of the Myers-Briggs® system, we're kind of obsessed with typing people. But since our friends aren't talking to us now, thanks to our probing questions and endless inquiries, all in an attempt to identify their personality types, we've had to find other ways to satisfy our MBTI® typing needs. And, what's the best way to do that? Well, by typing TV characters, of course!
Netflix's Big Mouth, from the creative mind of Nick Kroll, has got two seasons under its belt at this point, so it's high time we dive in and type the series' main characters. Which Big Mouth guy or gal are you most like based on your Myers-Briggs® type?
10 Nick Birch - ISFJ
Voiced by Nick Kroll (Parks and Recreation), Nick Birch is a 12-year-old kid who struggles with insecurity. He feels inferior to his peers because he hasn't hit puberty yet, and he tends to fixate on his perceived inadequacies. Even though Nick would like to be popular, he doesn't always have a good grasp on social etiquette. Ah, the joys of preadolescence.
We're typing Nick as an ISFJ, a personality type that's aware of social hierarchies and their place in them. These people are loyal, friendly and conscientious. They strive to create a harmonious environment with their friends and family, and when life pushes them down, they're not afraid to get back up again - just like Nick Birch.
9 Andrew Glouberman - INFJ
Andrew Glouberman is Nick Birch's best friend, and for those of you who have been living under a rock at the bottom of the ocean, he's voiced by John Mulaney, a fact which is very important for various comedy reasons. Seriously, when you're done laughing along with Big Mouth, check out Mulaney's Netflix comedy specials. They're hilarious, too.
Anyway, Andrew cares. A lot. Even though he knows sometimes he shouldn't. He's nerdy and socially awkward and he's very sensitive to his external environment (as is evidenced by his habit of vomiting when he gets anxious). Andrew is insightful about others and seeks meaning in his relationships, much like the INFJ Myers-Briggs® type.
8 Maurice The Hormone Monster - ENTJ
The ENTJ personality type is resourceful, insightful, and very outspoken - which sounds a lot like Maurice the Hormone Monster, if you ask us. Maurice, also voiced by Kroll, follows Andrew around most of the time, since Andrew is his official client. Maurice tries to convince Andrew to give in to all of his teenage whims.
Even though Maury isn't always the best role model for Andrew (or anyone else, for that matter), and even though some of his advice leaves a lot to be desired, you can't deny that he truly cares for the kids he helps... well, tries to help, anyway. Great at generating possibilities and adept at scheming schemes (however harebrained they might be), Maurice is definitely ENTJ material.
7 Matthew - ENFJ
Voiced by Andrew Rannells (Girls), Matthew is an openly gay student at Bridgemont Middle School, and a friend of Jessi Glaser's. With his snarky personality, clever witticisms, and overall knack for observational humor, Matthew is an upbeat character who is easy to like thanks to his many quotable one-liners.
When it comes to giving advice, Matthew's the character that all of the other students want to talk to. He's supportive and he just seems like he knows what's up, no matter what the issue happens to be. Warm, empathetic, sociable, and always ready to help other people out, Matthew is cut from the ENFJ cloth.
6 Jay Bilzerian - ENTP
Jay Bilzeran (voiced by Jason Mantzoukas) is nothing if not confident. It seems like all this guy wants to do is make friends, but when it comes to, you know, actually making friends? Eh, he's not so good at it, bless his heart. He's just a little awkward - but, hey, some of the best people are!
Jay's super enthusiastic, especially when it comes to magic. He may not be the most popular kid in school, but he marches to the beat of his own drum, and that's totally cool by us. Quick, alert and outspoken, the ENTP personality type never backs away from a challenge and enjoys many unique hobbies, just like Jay.
5 Jessi Glaser - INTJ
Jessi Glaser's (voiced by Jessi Klein) sarcasm and dry sense of humor speaks to us on a deep level. Even though Jessi's a pessimist, she's still pretty popular with the kids at school thanks to her maturity and intelligence. Jessi develops depression after seeing her parent's marriage fall apart because of her father's drug addiction and her mother's affair, but she's not afraid to ask for help.
Like the INTJ, Jessi doesn't always know how to process her emotions, which is not the same thing as saying she doesn't have any at all. Jessi is frank, decisive, knowledgeable and long-term goal oriented.
4 Coach Steve - ESFP
Another character voiced by the show's creator, Coach Steve is wacky. A little slow on the uptake sometimes, and a little naive at others, Coach Steve (who's first name may or may not actually be Coach; we wouldn't be surprised if that were the case) just wants to hang out with somebody, so he's constantly pestering his colleagues, and even his students, to get together.
It's not that Steve is a bad guy, it's just that he wants to talk, but isn't always great at interpreting social cues. He's friendly and outgoing and he loves life. He's spontaneous, flexible, and fun. Steve is a chip off the old ESFP block.
3 Featuring Ludacris - ISTP
Voiced by Jordan Peele (the director of Us, as well as the upcoming The Twilight Zone reboot), Jay Bilzerian's pit bull, punnily named Featuring Ludacris, has a tough exterior, but beneath that canine brawn lies a heart of gold. Turns out, this big dog is secretly a sweetheart. Well, to his family, anyway, 'cause there was that one time when he tried to attack Nick...
Vicious on the outside, tender and sensitive on the inside, Featuring Ludacris will defend his family no matter what. He takes his job very seriously, and is ready to attack strangers at a moment's notice. For his loyalty, tolerance of those he loves, and his eagerness to get in on the action, we're typing Featuring Ludacris as an ISTP.
2 Missy Foreman-Greenwald - INFP
Any character who has a crush on Nathan Fillion is a great character by us! But, Missy Foreman-Greenwald's love of the Firefly star isn't the only thing that makes her cool. Geeky, open-minded, romantic, and kind, Missy (voiced by Jenny Slate) is an INFP if ever we saw one.
Missy has that fantastical, whimsical, inexhaustible INFP imagination - a trademark of this personality type. She's always eager to open up a conversation, whether it's about the fact that someone's dog looks like Nathan Fillion, or a romance novel. She may seem like an innocent Disney princess, Missy is mature and not afraid to stick up for herself or trust her intuition. Oh, yeah. We've got a major INFP here, folks.
1 Connie the Hormone Monstress - ESFJ
Like Maurice the Hormone Monster, Connie the Hormone Monstress (voiced by Maya Rudolph) has the best of intentions when it comes to guiding her clients, Jessi and Missy. Unfortunately, also like Maurice, when it comes to giving helpful life advice to the girls, she often falls short of the mark.
Connie wants to make her clients happy, empathizing with them when life doesn't go their way, and offering up solutions (or, what she perceives are solutions, but are mostly just unhealthy coping mechanisms, à la BoJack Horseman) to their problems. Loyal, hard-working, and ready to be there for her friends when they need it most, Connie the Hormone Monstress is an ESFJ.
