What Types are the Toy Story Characters?

Let's Type the main characters from a Pixar favorite!

Have you seen the Toy Story movies yet?

If you’re anything like me, you probably tried to figure out the Energy Types of all the characters! It’s fun to do.

But if you’re new to the world of Energy Profiling, you might be wondering, “What is an Energy Type?”

Energy Profiling is a system based on movement, and everything in our world leads with a dominant Energy Type.

Since I can’t always rely on Facial Profiling for fictional characters (as they all seem to have wide eyes and little button noses), I look at the overall expression of the other 4 Energy Profiling assessment tools: body language, thought and feeling processes, behavior tendencies, and personality.

Let’s have some fun with Energy Profiling. What Type do you think each of these Toy Story characters are? (Make a guess and then check your answers in the key below!)


Woody is loyal and would do anything for his friends. He prioritizes keeping everyone together and keeps them happy and informed with staff meetings and updates.
