For fans of teen dramas, every episode needs to be overly dramatic with hopefully a friendship fight or love triangle thrown into the mix, too. This genre of TV show has been on the rise ever since the '80s and '90s and with the long-running Degrassi series and a few others, it doesn't show any signs of stopping.
Chances are, you've watched some teen dramas and felt that you could relate to at least one of the characters. This is the entire point since these shows are designed so young people can feel like others understand the trials that they're going through.
Teen dramas are perfect to look at through the MBTI since most characters are drawn in an interesting way. Read on to find out which teen drama character you are, based on your MBTI.
10 ISTP: Angela Chase
Angela Chase (Claire Danes) is the main character on My So-Called Life and definitely made an impression on the teen drama universe. She pines after Jordan Catalano, she has two quirky best friends, and she is at that weird moment in time when she cares about her family but doesn't think that it's super cool to show it.
Your teen drama character is Angela Chase if you're an ISTP or "Logical Pragmatist" since this MBTI really suits the tone of this show. All of the characters look at the world around them and the people that they know and try to figure them out. Angela, of course, does this the most since viewers hear her innermost thoughts via voiceover in every single episode. If you're a "careful observer" like ISTPs then you can relate to Angela.
9 INFP: Peyton Sawyer
Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) on One Tree Hill is a lot of things: boy crazy, an angry teenage girl, lonely, a great friend, and also someone who seems to need a lot of alone time. She feels a lot of things very strongly, like the majority of teen drama characters (or any adolescent in a movie or TV show). Since she's got so many feelings, she would be an INTP or "Thoughtful Idealist."
If this is your MBTI as well, then you're Peyton. You have a "long-range vision" for your life and you also have a lot of creativity. You're also "deep" and "introspective." You're the kind of person who has to work something out in your mind before letting anyone know about your plans.
8 ISTJ: Rory Gilmore
Everyone adores Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), the one half of the mother-daughter pair on Gilmore Girls. Whether she's studying hard or drinking coffee or putting away junk food, she's full of charm and just as many hilarious jokes as her mom.
If you're an ISTJ or "Responsible Realist" then your teen drama character is Rory Gilmore. ISTJs are described as people who work according to a "traditional, task-oriented, decisive way." Rory is the good girl in town who is definitely a rule follower. She's "orderly" and "organized" (maybe even a bit too organized, at least according to her mom who is the opposite of her in that regard).
7 ENTP: Kelly Taylor
Every teen drama needs a popular girl, and Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth) on Beverly Hills,90210 is among the best since she's actually a nice person underneath all that makeup and fancy designer clothing. It might take her a little while to actually start acting like a good person, but high school is all about finding yourself.
If your MBTI is ENTP or "Enterprising Explorer" then your teen drama character is Kelly Taylor. She's "curious" and "assertive" and doesn't take life at face value. Yes, she's had chances that others might not get thanks to her loaded family, but she's "resourceful" and "independent."
6 ISFP: Amy Juergens
The Secret Life of the American Teenager was on the air from 2008 and 2013 and starred Shailene Woodley as Amy Juergens, a pregnant high schooler. While the show can be a bit cheesy, it's a generally sweet and light-hearted look at one girl as she struggles with such a big life change.
Amy is a good girl, the kind who people say would never get pregnant in high school, which is probably the point since this proves that this can happen to anyone and that there's no use judging. Amy's in the school band and also a really good friend. If your MBTI is ISFP, then your teen drama character is Amy Juergens since this describes her, too. An ISFP is a "Versatile Supporter" who is "caring" and "sensitive" and has "strong values."
5 ESFP: Taylor Townsend
Most people have seen (and adored) The O.C. Autumn Reeser's character Taylor Townsend is smart and sounds like an ESFP or "Energetic Problem-Solver." She's the girl at school who does everything and works super hard, but doesn't really have any pals to speak of. ESFPs are "negotiators" and "persuasive" and "pragmatic troubleshooters."
If this also sounds like you, then Taylor is your teen drama character. Taylor tries to get what she wants, like when she fakes planning a dance that was actually all Summer. Taylor exhibits some good and bad personality traits, but she learns to use her organizational and Type A powers for good by the end of the show.
4 ENTJ: Cassandra
The Netflix teen drama The Society is a fascinating look at what would happen if a group of teenagers were literally the only ones in their town. It's got the juicy teen drama that fans love plus some sci-fi and thriller elements.
Cassandra (Rachel Keller) is one of the two teenagers who becomes a leader. She's the more practical one who thinks that everyone should follow a democracy and share resources (unlike the immature teenage boy who thinks that everyone should hold onto their wealth and that stealing is totally fine).
If you're an ENTJ or "Decisive Strategist" then Cassandra is your teen drama character. You're both up to the challenge of solving problems and are "assertive" and "take charge."
3 INFJ: Julie Taylor
Coach Taylor and Tami's daughter Julie Taylor is a breath of fresh air on Friday Night Lights. She's sweet, head-strong, and doesn't mind standing up to her parents or anyone else, either. When she and Matt get engaged when the show ends, she knows that it's the right thing to do, even if people (including her parents) might wonder if things are moving too fast or if she should wait a little while.
If you're an INFJ or "Insightful Visionary" then you're a lot like Julie, too. INFJs are "quietly inspiring" and "creative." They also "work with integrity" and are "sensitive" and "individualistic." Julie does her own thing, whether she's deciding to leave college or she's picking and choosing the people that she wants to be friends with in her small Texas town.
2 ISFJ: Taylor Wilson
MTV's teen drama Finding Carter followed a teenage girl who learned that her mother had stolen her from her actual, legit family. One of the most compelling characters is Taylor Wilson (Anna Jacoby-Heron) who falls in love with Carter's best friend, Max.
If you're an ISFJ or "Practical Helper" then your teen drama character is Taylor Wilson. Like her, you live in between doing things that you're supposed to and then loosening the reigns a little bit. At your core, though, you want to help other people and you're "traditional" and "service minded."
1 ESFJ: Lola Pacini
Lola Pacini is one of the main characters on Degrassi: Next Class and she's a very artistic person. Mostly, though, she wants to be a good friend, which is why she sounds like an ESFJ or "Supportive Contributor."
You and Lola are both "sociable and outgoing" and "loyal." You're both "enthusiastic" (although you might not dye your hair crazy colors like this character does). Lola does make some mistakes, but she's in high school, so that's to be expected.
