A great appreciation for all people in this spot who participated in my poll. Using the link (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) assessment, I attempted to classify Belle in one of sixteen different personality types.


1. Introverted link

Introverts often:
- Have quiet energy
- Listen more than talk
- Think quietly inside their heads
- Think, then act
- Feel comfortable being alone
- Prefer to work "behind-the-scenes"
- Have good powers of concentration
- Prefer to focus on one thing at a time
- Are self-contained and reserved

In the song "Belle," she preferred reading alone to mingling with the villagers. She was more of a homey girl than a society girl. She was quite reserved, in a sense, that the villagers did not understand her.

2. Intuitive link

Intuitives often:
- Focus on the big picture & possibilities
- Admire creative ideas
- Notice anything new or different
- Are inventive - see what could be
- Think about future implications
- Trust their gut instincts
- Prefer to learn new skills
- Like to figure things out for themselves
- Work in bursts of energy

Belle loved to think about the future: "I want much more than this provincial life." She admired her father, who was a creative, though odd, inventor. When Maurice was missing, Belle discovered with her instinct that something was wrong.

In the Beast's castle, Belle's intuition told her that it was an enchanted castle. "This is my first time in an enchanted castle.... I figured it out myself," she said.

She quickly observed that the Beast changed into a gentler character. Then she learned to be happy in the Beast's castle and, in time, to love him.

3. Thinking link

Thinkers often:
- Make decisions objectively
- Appear cool and reserved
- Are most convinced by rational arguments
- Are honest and direct
- Value honesty and fairness
- Take few things personally
- Are good at seeing flaws
- Are motivated by achievement
- Argue or debate issues for fun

Belle is not a 100% Thinking type. She has some traits that belong to a Feeling type. She did not always "make decisions objectively." (She decided to go from the Beast's castle because she was frightened. "Promise or no promise, I can't stay here another minute.")

Instead of being "cool and reserved," she was more "warm and friendly," another Feeling trait. She also took quite many things personally. When Maurice was imprisoned by the Beast, she considered it an offense toward herself and offered to replace her father.

However, Belle is quite strong in her thinking. She directly voiced her thoughts about Gaston to her father (though not to Gaston, of course): "He's handsome all right, and rude, and conceited." She dared to defy Gaston even when the villagers were with him.

Furthermore, she was honest with the Beast when she said that she was happy with him.

4. Perceiving link

Perceivers often:
- Like to keep their options open
- Are playful and casual
- Are less aware of time and may run late
- Prefer to start projects
- Play first, work later
- May have difficulty making some decisions
- Question the need for many rules
- Like to keep plans flexible
- Want the freedom to be spontaneous

It is clear that Belle belongs to the Perceiving type. She is "playful and casual." See how she kicked the bucket when she sang, "Madame Gaston, can you just see it?"

We can easily imagine her to forget time when reading. The villagers said, "Her nose (was) stuck in a book." Belle herself declared to the librarian that she "couldn't put it (her book) down."

We don't know whether she played first, worked later, or worked first, played later, because it is not shown in the movie. Although she went to the library (fun for her) before helping her father, I believe that she knew her responsibility. Maybe she had asked his permission when she went to the library.

In the castle, she questioned the Beast's rule: forbidding her to go to the West Wing.

She was also flexible in eating her breakfast from her bowl, to make the Beast feel better.


The characteristics of an INTP (Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Perceiving) person:

- Rational and reasonable
- Loves knowledge and new ideas
- Sometimes appears dreamy and distant
- Spends a lot of time thinking
- Dislike routine work
- Does not lead or control others
- Does not want to be controlled
- Flexible and tolerant, except when his/her beliefs are violated
- Independent, original, and creative

This is basically Elsa's character in a nutshell.I can relate to those words easily.
This is basically Elsa's character in a nutshell.I can relate to those words easily.
Elsa is without a doubt my favorite Disney character ever because she's the one I related the most out of all the Disney characters out there.Let's get into more detail why I love her so much,shall we ;):

Originally,I didn't love Elsa that much,I thought she was okay and felt neutral about her.That is until I re-watched the movie 2 months ago and from that day on,I realized just how much I have in common with her.
It was like I was seeing myself in her,for me that meant so much,and I'm thankful for that.
You see,my mom told me to hold back my emotions at school because I have big anger issues...

Why don't they sell princess dresses like these? I'd buy the heck out of these!

Since it's Veteran's Day, I thought I'd use some rare time off to write an article. The only article idea I could think of that wouldn't take all day to research and explore would be a list of princess "peasant" dresses rated in order from the ones I like least to the one I'm seriously considering commissioning my Ren Faire friends to sew for me.

Most people seem to love the princesses' fancy, sparkly, poofy ballgowns, or their iconic princess dresses. I personally was never a fan. I'm a real stickler for comfort and practicality. Ballgowns tend to be made with a material I find uncomfortable...

Okay, so a lot of people have been doing these, and I wanted to write a new article before I finished my countdown of the smartest Disney Princesses, so I'm going to be doing this. Anyways, keep in mind this is just my opinion. Enjoy the article! :)

11. Mulan

She may be my favorite Disney Princess, but I am definitely not a fan of her design. In my opinion, her face is completely changed, it's made sort of chubby, with more rosy cheeks. Her hair looks different, and I do like the outfit, but I don't think it suits her, I don't think her appearance is unappealing to look at or anything,...

For such a successful and expensive film, Frozen's complete lack of diversity (particularly ethnic diversity) really vexed me. Frozen has four main human characters and out of the four:
- Four are white
- Four are all apparently straight
- Three are blonde
Looking at this, you can tell there is very little variation in Frozen's main cast. In ethnic terms, there really is no excuse of this. Frozen needed more POC.

I have heard one main argument (read: excuse) why Frozen didn't have any racially diverse characters (and no: I am not counting black background characters). Some say that Frozen...

Forget about all of your opinions on Hans. Just for a minute forget about any of his scheming or backstabbing that happens later in the movie. Imagine that you came into to this movie not expecting a villain, or at the very least expecting Elsa to be a villain. What would be the impression you would have of Hans?

My bet is that it would be almost the exact same as Anna's. In the first hour of the movie, Hans gives no implication that he is anything other than what he appears. A kind, gentlemanly, slightly awkward young man who is looking for a sense of adventure and a way to escape the overbearing...

One of the best things about Disney princess films are their princesses(obviously) and songs. As a singer, music lover, and actor, I've always paid close attention to the voices that bring these wonderful characters and songs to life. I am picky about the voices I like but can admit that no princess has a bad voice, some are just much better than others. Share your opinions.
13. Snow White
Let me begin by saying that I'm ranking both singing and speaking voices and that even though she's at the bottom, I don't hate Snow White's voice. Let's be honest here, most people find her voice to be annoying....
