Description:

The Pie Sisters represent the classical temperaments, which according to the ancient Greeks stemmed from an excess of one or another of the four "humors" which flow through the body.

Pinkie Pie, "Sanguine": Stemming from an excess of blood, this temperament is happy, outgoing, and energetic.
Limestone Pie, "Choleric": Stemming from an excess of yellow bile, this temperament is passionate, aggressive, and impulsive.
Marble Pie, "Melancholic": Stemming from an excess of black bile, this temperament is passive, withdrawn, and prone to depression.
Maud Pie, "Phlegmatic": Stemming from an excess of phlegm, this temperament is passive, calm, and unemotional.

To those claiming Autism amongst the Pie sisters: Maybe it isn’t Autism, it’s just how they are.

Why does everything these days have to be a fucking disease or condition? There’s a good chance that Limestone is just an abusive control freak.

So, is Fluttershy not shy, but just but how she is?
You seem to be under the impression that the ’condition’ is some external thing separate from the way the person is, it isn’t, it’s putting a name to how the person is. You’re balking against a definition, but it is as confused a thing to object to as it is to say water isn’t wet, it’s just how it is. Yes, water is just how it is, and we call that condition of being: wet.

Pinkie Pie has often been shown blurting outvthings that would hurt someone’s feelings, and then being slow to pick up on it even when she eventually gets it. Difficulty understanding how people will emotionally react is one of the traits of autism and recognizing traits of the autism spectrum isn’t automatically an insult.
Cough, cough. I’m pretty sure I have undiagnosed Asperger’s.

They are all also socionics Delta quadra personalities. Using the MBTI labels though, this comes out as
Limestone – ESTJ
Maud – ISTJ
Pinkie – ENFP
Marble – INFP that only looks like an ISFP (Fluttershy) but isn’t 100% match. Both are Fi dominants but have a different orientation of the sensing / intuition axis. My basis for INFP is that Marble, being extremely shy and introverted did not show off her axilliary Ne or Se function, but did show off her tertiary function off Si (tradition/recalling), not Ni (future envisioning/new planning). Thus INFP.

For comparision Fluttershy is also an extreme introvert, dominant Fi. But coupled with some Ni so she hopes for a new future, and a fair amount of Se in her leanings for aesthetics.
