Scrubs: “Scrubs is an American comedy-drama created in 2001 by Bill Lawrence and produced currently by ABC Studios.”
Considering Scrubs is partly a drama show, there are many clear personality types that arise from this show. In particular, JD and Dr Cox are easily to figure out, however there are harder people to analyze such as Elliot.
JD is the main character in this TV show. He is an INFP for very obvious reasons. He is a strong introvert, constantly narrating in his head while others are talking. He is also the most intuitive on the show as he is constantly imagining things and thinking “abnormally” which confuses many characters on the show. He is also a feeling type as he often shares his emotions and is generally friendly towards the other members of the staff. He is also very spontaneous, thinking up random and crazy ideas on the show. This shows JD is an INFP.
Turk is an ESFJ, which is probably one of the reasons he and JD get on so well. He is extroverted as he says what he wants to say out loud for the majority of the show and often speaks before he thinks. He is also a sensor as he is very traditional with his relationship with Carla and he generally keeps within his comfort zone, not willing to try new ideas. He is also a feeling type as he very rarely offends others but gets offended himself quiet easily. He is a judger as he works hard to accomplish his goals, although he does show signs of spontaneity when around JD.
Elliot is an ENFP. She is extroverted and very rarely gives others a chance to speak, often coming off as selfish. She is intuitive due to her weird and unusual remarks about thinks in her life. She is definitely a feeler, as she is constantly upset about things that most people would easily brush off. She is spontaneous as she thinks randomly like JD.
Carla is an ESFJ for sure. She is certainly the helping type as she always wants to solve other people’s problems, often appearing nosey as she is peaking in on other people’s problems. She is extroverted as she wants others to listen to what she has to say. She is a sensor, like Turk, however she shows signs of intuition. She is a feeler for sure, constantly over reacting about things as well as using her Fe to manipulate people in conversation. She is a judger as she is organized at her job and most of the things that she does.
Dr Cox is an INTJ for sure. He hates being disturbed and doesn’t talk much and it looks like for the most part he doesn’t enjoy socializing with anyone. He hates when people approach him. He is intuitive as he has deep thoughts about how things should work and isn’t afraid to share them. He is a thinker as he doesn’t think about people’s feelings when he talks and he is a judger as he is constantly judging others and needs to loosen up a lot.
The Janitor is an introvert and only talks occasionally when he wants to annoy JD. He is intuitive as he thinks up creative ideas to do when he is bored. He is a thinker as he doesn’t care too much about others when he says things and he is a perceiver because he is unorganized and often does crazy things without thinking. Dr Kelso is an ENTJ, a typical boss at the hospital. He interacts with people at the hospital, he is intuitive and bends the rules, he is a thinker as he cares more about what is logically best for the hospital than patients-wise. He is a judger as he does a lot to organize the place.
