The Office MBTI – Personality Type of Characters According to Myers-Briggs
Michael Scott (ENFP)
Michael is the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin paper products. He is a fun-loving, cheerful and funny guy, but does have certain toxic tendencies. He cares for his employees, though he never shies away from reprimanding them for their mistakes. He can be a really good friend. Michael is definitely an ENFP
Jim Halpert (ENTP)
Jim is an employee and he loves to prank Dwight every now and then. It is also quite difficult to beat him in a debate, especially for Dwight. He is a cool and easy-going person. Definitely an ENTP character.
Stanley Hudson (ISTP)
You better not disturb this guy because he is too focused on work and other important things. He is not a very good communicator, however, will always stand up and fight against injustice. He cares for her daughter very much and he is also one of the best employees in the office. Stanley is an ISTP.
Andy Bernard (ESFP)
Andy is definitely an ESFP because he loves to go to parties, connects well with Michael and is a little bit competitive with Dwight and Jim. He loves to hang out and gets bored easily.

Pam is a receptionist who is not really very talkative compared to the rest of the people in the office. She is a caring lady, who is friends with everybody. She is very uncertain about her life choices, always making them dependent on others’ decisions. Pam likes to draw. She is an ISFJ character.
Angela Martin (ISTJ)
Angela is one of the most hated characters in this show due to her behaviour of constantly trying to have total control over everything, even things like arranging Christmas parties and other events.
