Which Elizabeth Olsen Character Are You, According To Your MBTI®

Which Elizabeth Olsen Character Are You, According To Your MBTI®

When Martha Marcy May Marlene hit theaters in 2011, movie fans realized that Elizabeth Olsen, the third Olsen sister, was a super talented actress. She has since appeared in many films big and small, from action to horror to comedy. Her presence in a movie is always interesting and thoughtful.

With so many different roles on her resume, Elizabeth Olsen is perfect for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®. Some of her stand-out projects include the social media commentary film Ingrid Goes West and the recent Marvel hit Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Several of Olsen’s fascinating and beloved characters fit into the MBTI® framework.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Updated on May 8th, 2022 by Aya Tsintziras: Elizabeth Olsen has become a huge movie star thanks to her role as Wanda/Scarlett Witch in the MCU. After wowing fans on the creative series Wandavision, which premiered in 2021, Olsen has also appeared in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. 

ENFP: Zoe In Peace, Love & Misunderstanding

The 2011 film Peace, Love & Misunderstanding stars Catherine Keener as Diane, who doesn’t have the best relationship with her mom, Grace played by Jane Fonda. Diane brings her two kids to Woodstock, where Grace lives a bohemian lifestyle that is very different from what they know. Critics didn’t love this movie.

Elizabeth Olsen plays Zoe, a pretentious college kid who makes a lot of feminist statements throughout the film. In one scene, she says, “Where does the perpetuation of fragmentation lead us? You know, it seems like we should be finding a way back into harmony with one another rather than representing, and therefore replicating our division.” Zoe sounds like an ENFP or “the imaginative motivator.” ENFPs “value depth and authenticity” and are “lively but restless.”

INFP: Martha In Martha Marcy May Marlene

The film Martha Marcy May Marlene is both well-crafted and incredibly heartbreaking. Olsen plays a girl named Martha who got involved with a cult, and while she’s now living with her sister Lucy (Sarah Paulson), the film has many disturbing scenes of just how bad life in that cult was.

Martha sounds like an INFP or “the thoughtful idealist.” Many people will join a cult because they want something to hold onto, and that’s exactly what this character does. INFPs are known for “committing to what they believe in” and they’re also “devoted.” Like everyone who gets involved with this type of group, she thinks that this is what she has to do, although, of course, it all goes horribly wrong.

ISFJ: Elle In Godzilla (2014)

Elizabeth Olsen played mother and wife Ella in the 2014 film Godzilla. She’s also a nurse, which makes her MBTI® an ISFJ or “the practical helper.”

ISFJs are “patient” and “caretakers” so it makes sense that Elle work at a hospital. Anyone who has this MBTI® will relate to this character as they will understand that Elle brings a human element to this action film by caring so much about the people in her life.

INTJ: Taylor In Ingrid Goes West (2017)

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen in Ingrid Goes West

In the intelligent and entertaining 2017 movie Ingrid Goes West, Olsen plays Taylor Sloane, an Instagram influencer who Aubrey Plaza’s character Ingrid Thorburn becomes completely enamored with.

Taylor is definitely not as perfect as her Instagram suggests, and her role is a clever take on the way that some people present themselves online. If someone’s MBTI® is an INTJ or “the conceptual planner,” this is the movie for them. INTJs have “compelling long-range visions” and are perfectionists who plan for the future.

ENTJ: Zibby In Liberal Arts (2012)

Written and directed by How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Randor, the 2012 movie Liberal Arts is about aging, bad timing, and college life. Radnor plays Jesse, who meets Elizabeth Olsen’s character Zibby (short for Elizabeth). Zibby totally falls for him, but he won’t go there because he knows that there’s too big of an age gap between them as he’s 35 and she’s 19.

Zibby is practical and smart. In the end, she’s grateful to Jesse and realizes that he made the correct choice. Zibby would be an ENTJ or “the decisive strategist.” She’s got her eyes on the future and she’s “energetic” and wants to be in charge. Like other ENTJs, she feels overwhelmed if she’s not on the path that she wants to be on.

INFJ: Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch In Marvel Movies And WandaVision (2015-)

Elizabeth Olsen played Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in several Marvel movies: 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, 2017’s Avengers: Infinity War, and 2018’s Avengers: Endgame. She’s currently reprising her role in the 2020 TV show WandaVision. Olsen also portrayed her character in Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness.

Thanks to her powerful psychic abilities, Scarlet Witch has some qualities that an INFJ or “the insightful visionary” would have. The official description says that these types “see the meaning and connections between ideas, relationships, and interactions” which sounds just like Scarlet Witch.

ISTJ: Jane In Wind River (2017)

Elizabeth Olsen definitely played many different roles, including Jane Banner in the 2017 film Wind River. As an FBI agent, her MBTI® would be ISTJ or “the responsible realist.”

This movie is perfect for anyone who has this personality type. FBI agents are definitely “task-oriented” and “decisive” along with being “analytical” which are the traits that ISTJs have.

ENFJ: Edie In Kill Your Darlings (2013)

Olsen played Edie Parker in the 2013 movie Kill Your Darlings which was inspired by the writers and thinkers of the Beat Generation. She was married to Jack Kerouac and she was also a writer who studied art at Columbia.

This is a great movie for anyone who is an ENFJ or “the compassionate facilitator.” These personality types are all about keeping the peace and making sure to stay true to themselves and get creative, which sounds like a beatnik.

ISFP: Zooey In Kodachrome (2017)

Elizabeth Olsen’s Kodachrome character is Zooey, a nurse who works for Ben (Ed Harris), the father of Matt (Jason Sudeikis). She becomes involved in the family’s tragedy when Ben is dying and they all take a road trip.

Someone who is an ISFP or “the versatile supporter” will enjoy this Netflix movie. ISFPs are said to make sure that coworkers or friends get along with each other, and they’re sympathetic toward whatever situation someone is going through. Zooey could deliver the bad news and not get involved, but she goes on the road trip because she cares.

ENTP: Sarah In Silent House (2012)

The 2012 horror movie Silent House has a huge twist, which makes fans question everything that they have just seen. Not every review of the film was positive, though, so it’s subjective whether audiences felt that the twist was lame or brilliant. The movie was shot in a single take, which is interesting.

This is the movie to watch for someone who is an ENTP or “the enterprising explorer.” These people are all about “developing strategies” and they’re “clever and resourceful.” Love or hate this movie, that’s exactly what Sarah is like.

INTP: Leigh In Sorry For Your Loss (2018-)

Elizabeth Olsen also starred in the Facebook Watch series Sorry For Your Loss as Leigh, whose husband dies, which understandably alters her entire life. Leigh worked as a writer at Basically News and now teaches fitness and lives with her sister Jules and her mom Amy while she tries to figure out what to do next.

Leigh sounds like an INTP who are “quiet” and “adaptable.” INTPs figure out how to fix something that has gone wrong, which is what Leigh does when she learns that she has lost her husband and that she has to move forward with her life without him.
