Giving Chain of Gold Characters MBTI Personality Types

Chain of Gold MBTI Personalities

Today, we’re giving the main characters from Cassandra Clare’s latest novel, Chain of Gold, Myres-Briggs personality types we think match them. The personalities are made up of four main features, represented by letters. So, before we get into it, here’s a quick overview of the categories.


Introverted individuals are more reserved and can be quite shy, whereas extroverted individuals are more outgoing and sociable.


Observant people are very down-to-earth and tend to be practical, whereas intuitive people are imaginative and tend to look for hidden meanings instead of the obvious.


Thinking individuals are logical, critical and highly independent, whereas feeling individuals express their emotions and are more empathic.


Judging people prefer order and planning and are very organised, whereas prospecting people spot opportunities and are good at improvising.

Quick warning: Chain of Gold spoilers!
