3xZ picked INFJ:
Judging from the 2013 movie only, Elsa is an ISFJ since she seems to keep traditions and all she wanted to do is to protect Anna. However, after I watched Frozen Fever and read other Frozen books, I realise that she is actually an INFJ. Elsa is more determined, perfectionist, and convincing rather than being supportive and reliable. It is always Anna who supports her.

I also can see her as an ESFJ because after her people accept her, she is fine being the centre of their attention. I'm not surprised if in Frozen 2 we will see her being extroverted as in the aftermaths of Frozen. Also she doesn't want to listen to her sister, especially about the frozen kingdom, which is one of the weaknesses of ESFJ. She's quite dominant, another trait of an extroverted and judging person. Unlike ISFJ, ESFJ is not highly supportive, humble or shy, and doesn't prefer to be on the backstage. Plus, unlike ENFJ, Elsa is not eloquent but manipulative.

BTW, Elsa is definitely an F. She is sensitive. Moreover, she acts based on her feelings, not her rationality. All problems are because of she cannot control her emotions, as we can see in FTFTIF reprise and climax scenes.

Sensing vs Intuition:
Focus on reality of how things are (Sensing) vs Imagine possibilities of how things could be (Intuition)
Looks at concrete facts & details (Sensing) vs Looks at big picture, everything connects (Intuition)
Prefers ideas with practical applications (Sensing) vs Enjoy fantastical ideas for own sake (Intuition)
Describe things specific and literally (Sensing) vs Describe things figurative and poetic (Intuition)

Thinking vs Feeling:
Decide impersonally with logic (Thinking) vs Decide emotionally (selfish or selfless) (Feeling)

Judging vs Perceiving:

I am very shocked that you guys both picked Intuition over Sensing as well as Judging over Perceiving and would love to hear more of your guys' reasons and see the parameters you use so I can better understand? I was confident she's ISTJ.

UnholyNoise picked ISFJ:
definitely more of a J than a P - elsa is not spontaneous at all, does not handle change well, and just naturally seems to be more of a planner. even in frozen fever she has her sister's special day all mapped out, right down to how anna would get her presents.

and she's a sensor, her decisions are based on outside circumstances over some special inner reasoning. - and actually this the root of a lot of the conflict with her sister (who is definitely more of an intuitive type, and insists on things with little to no solid evidence to support her).

Why F over T?
Decide impersonally with logic (Thinking) < Decide emotionally (selfish or selfless) (Feeling)
Value justice and fairness (Thinking) > Value harmony and forgiveness (Feeling)
Enjoy finding flaws in argument (Thinking) > Like to please and point out best in people (Feeling)
Described as reasonable & level-headed (Thinking) > Described as warm & empathetic (Feeling)

Or is that not right?

^ it only seems she thinks logically while she's quite a bundle of emotions. She's always clouded with emotions - fear, lonliness. she actually decided to seclude herself quite emotionally, if she were thinking straight she'd have talked to Anna.

laylastepford picked ISTJ:
^ I suppose it's based on perception then because I can totally see what you are saying and why you have come to your conclusion. At the same time, I still see why I came to the conclusions I did which are because I see her as being very logical and thinking only in terms of reason and predictability (statistics without the numbers). She believes logically that her powers cannot be controlled so she chooses the most reasonable route, in her mind, which is to isolate. If she was a more emotional person, I would think it would have led to her having more trust in family and love and bonding but as someone who chooses logic over emotion, she didn't think those emotions and emotional bond could help her at all. Does that make sense?

We can see that Elsa is a very selfless and caring person. She thinks about others before herself. When she was a child, she could make anything to see her sister happy. She needs to express her feelings, which are correlated to her powers. If she was an Fi user, the rule "conceal, don't feel" would be easier for her. After the accident, she sacrificed her childhood to keep others safe from her power. She also wants to be a good girl, being perfect because of Fe, not Si. If it was Si, she would not be so... depressed. She follows the rules just because she thinks that she is a monster, and so her acts are restrained because of her fear of hurting others. When her parents and other people see her power as a bad thing, Elsa hates herself, but when she is accepted, she finds self esteem. Even adult, Elsa remains concerned about her sister's feelings, and wants to see a smile adorn her face. At the coronation party, she is the first one to compliment her and start the conversation. After she teased Anna by sending her dancing with the Duke, we can see a tender and motherly smile in her face, because Anna said that she's never been so happy. Towards the end of the movie, when Hans pursues her in the storm, the first thing that she says is "Take care of my sister".

In fact, she is not capable to balance her Ni and her Fe. When she uses Fe, she ignores her dominant function and when she uses Ni, she ignores her auxiliary function, and lives in her " own world". She is also incredibly creative and artistic when she builds her ice castle and makes her ice dress (Ni-Se). Some details of the movie show that she particulary loves purple (and blue, obviously). The meaning of these colors is the perfect desciption of an INFx. At the end of the movie, Elsa is happy to be accepted for who she is. It's also a parallel to her childhood. She sees her power as a gift, who can make others happy, and not a malediction.

So, in conclusion, I would say that Elsa is a INFJ hidden behind an ISTJ mask. INFJ often have "two faces" because of Fe and social expectations.

fox22 picked ISTJ:
Si-Te-Fi-Ne

Si =
Elsa solved problems to do what she had learned: hiding her power and wearing gloves. She think about what is happend in past and act on it.

Te =
Elsa hided her feelings, feels that she had to solved to problem and solve problems quick, without thinking about feelings. (Shooting ice to Anna's heart, sending a monster to get Anna and Kristof away)

Fi =
Elsa is hurt by her feelings and act on them, but can't say easily what she feel (like a Fe user). Elsa isn't a very talkactive person but share her feelings with acting on them.

Ne =
When Elsa sings 'Let it go' she throws her past away and begins a new start.

Krystal-snow picked INFJ:
I understand your point of view. Elsa hides her feelings but it's not natural for her, it makes her suffer. She does that just because they are correlated to her powers , and fears that these ones hurt someone. She tries to be reasonnable (Ti) and interiorises her father's words as a command, and wants to do what is good to obey, please her parents who seeking to protect her (Fe-Ti). She uses Fe to counteract its own effects! At the end of the movie, she is very happy to express finally her feelings. And in the short "Frozen Fever", she is clearly a giver.

During" let it go", Elsa shows her true personality: she removes her gloves(like Hans who shows his evil personality when he does the same movement), and tests the part of her power which she can't control but intrigues her in the same time. She discovers what she can do as she realizes it (Ni-Se). She embraces her true nature, and can use her power anytime she wants. Definitely Ni-Fe-Ti-Se for me.
