View Full Version : Fictional Characters

Has anyone tried putting together a list of fictional characters by their MBTI types?

I know it's dubious, but for whatever reason I kind of enjoy it. Some of the lists online are mind-numbingly terrible, and I've found that what's generated through discussions like this tend to be much more accurate.

Here's some of what I'd propose.

ENTP:

- Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes) -- definitely *not* INFP like you see some places. This kid is the living embodiment of Ne. Could be ENFP too, but some comics show a more utilitarian approach (esp. involving business schemes and whatnot), so I made him T.

- Gregory House (House, M.D.) -- Yes, I think he's Extraverted. Definitely *not* an NTJ in my opinion. Where's the Ni? Could also be INTP, and I could maybe believe ISTP, but it'd take some pretty strong evidence for S. Honestly, I'm about 50/50 on ENTP or INTP for him.

- Doc Emmett Brown (Back to the Future)

INTP:

- Temperance Brennan (Bones) -- INTJ might also be reasonable, but I see a fantastic absence of Fe, which makes me think Ti dominant. Also she doesn't seem to really have control over her team, which I'd expect from an NTJ.

- Juno MacGruff (Juno) -- I think the NTP part is pretty aparent from her use of language, her ability to lightly cope in a difficult emotonal situation, and her utilitarianism. I made her INTP because I sense Ti dominance; I think an ENTP would be more excitable and imposing on their environment. She seemed somewhat of "soft" and sort of withdrew instead of facing some issues head on. Could be ENTP though.

INTJ:

- Eric Foreman (House, M.D.) -- has the Te penchant for established procedure and empirical evidence, which clashes with House's Ti-driven plans that end up subverting the evidence they've gathered through tests. Ni presents itself in his willingness to shift conceptual perspectives during some episodes, even if they're contradictory (a few good ones regarding religion especially).

- Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs) -- any debate here?

- Stewie Griffin (Family Guy) -- I'm not sure if he's INTJ or ENTJ. Any argument here would be dandy. (On a side note, Extraverted NTs are hard to spot because, well, all NT Rationals are going to seem a little aloof.)

ENTJ:

- Eric Cartman (South Park) -- I hate to include characters like this that are blatantly shallow, but whatevs. The Te implimentation and Ni conceptual vision are apparent with Cartman.

- Perry Cox (Scrubs) -- some people think he's ENTP, but I think ENTJ because he's more overtly directive. Compare to, say, House, who controls his team mostly through mind games and manipulation -- that's a halmark of Keirsey's informative interaction style attempting to manage people.

ENFP:

- Molly Clock (Scrubs) -- Heather Graham's guest character. *Amazingly* good characature of an ENFP. I dated one so I should know, lol.

INFP:

- John "J.D." Dorian (Scrubs) -- could maybe be ENFP, but people don't give Extraverts enough credit -- they can have rich fantasy lives, too. Still, I'm kinda 50/50 on ENFP or INFP.

- Brian (Family Guy) -- lots of people think he's INTP, but I'm not convinced he's a Ti dominant. INFP fits better overall, I think.

INFJ:

- Yoda (Star Wars) -- similar to Calvin, he's the living embodiment of Ni. Could be INTJ then, too, but I don't sense the NT utilitarianism with him. Hardcore Ni though, sheesh.

ENFJ:

- Allison Cameron (House, M.D.) -- the morally vigilant counterpart to House. Definite ENF, but J or P could go either way: I tend to side with ENFJ because I don't sense Ne dominance with her, even though she has Fi coming out the ears. Still, the Fe/Ni combo can look a lot like the morally certain Fi.

- Michael Scott (The Office) -- definite Fe. I don't sense much Si because he's pretty willing to discregard the established protocol; attempts to be creative, fresh, and fun; and has weird Ni-like compulsions towards symbolism (e.g. the episode where they had the funeral for the bird). Lots of people seem to think he's an ESFP, but the motive behind his performing is almost always Fe-driven.

ESTP:

- Christopher Turk (Scrubs) -- could also be ESFP. Not sure.

- Nick Naylor (Thank You for Smoking) -- basically the archetypal ESTP Promoter.

ISTP:

- Robert Chase (House, M.D.) -- very, very utilitarian. Doesn't seem all that interested in theoretical discussion, but can keep up when need be.

- Stephen Hyde (That 70's Show) -- agree/disagree?

- Han Solo (Star Wars) -- maybe ESTP, but he seems less promoting and more individualistic, which is basically how Keirsey describes ESTP vs ISTP.

- Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop) -- SP impulsiveness with the fluid logic of Ti.

- Agent K (Men in Black) -- Tommy Lee Jones' character, if you don't remember. Lenore Thomson uses him as an example of a Ti dominant in her book, and he's a convincing one: disregard for protocol, fluid, in the moment and wholistic logic, sardonic wit, and even the symbology of losing one's identity by becoming an Agent is pretty typical of an inferior Fe.

ESFP:

- Michael Kelso (That 70's Show) -- the performer.

- Peter Griffin (Family Guy) -- same as above; kind of insensitive though, so maybe ESTP.

- Tim Taylor (Home Improvement) -- good example that not all SPs are good with their hands, lol. Has the in-the-moment performance aspect of ESP, but lacks the mechanical aptitude that typically comes with STP.

- Jim Halpert (The Office) -- I see people say ENTP for him sometimes, but I don't get it. I don't see NT for him at all, or T for that matter. But I'm willing to hear arguments.

ISFP:

- Luke Skywalker (Star Wars) -- I remain unconvinced he's an INFP, but I'd be willing to hear it out.

- Pam Beesly (The Office) -- the quiet, artistic secretary. I think she's a good example of ISFP.

ESTJ:

- Bob Kelso (Scrubs) -- utilitarian to the point of being percieved as heartless. Unlike an ENTJ, doesn't ruthlessly stir the establishment, however.

ISTJ:

- Hank Hill (King of the Hill) -- has the gentle yet stern and conventional ambience that seems to come with Si/Te.

ESFJ:

- Carla Espinoza (Scrubs) -- Fe dominance all the way. Not an N, so I went with ESFJ.

ISFJ:

- Samwise Gamgee (Lord of the Rings) -- gentle, supportive -- the archetypal friend and companion. Sort of set in his ways, but he is what he is.

If you have any ideas yourself, please contribute. I'm probably wrong on a lot of those.

If there's enough discussion and ideas, I might end up making a master list if we come to any tentative conclusions. (I know, a long shot for a group of INTPs, haha).

I can't help but try to find an INTP character, quite a difficult task considering we INTPs are an uncommon sort. The closest I can think of would be Dr Who.

1st-September-2008, 02:52 PM
So it's been a looong time since I read the Foundation series. Please remind me about Arkady Darell.

Dr Who I could see as an INTP.

This thread has reminded me of Thomas Covenant ( The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever) and the more I think about it the more certain I am he'd be an INTP.

Social outcast, riddled with self-doubt, emotionally crippled... doomed to save the world if only he'd face up to it and believe ;).

i've always thought of House as INTP (partly because he embodies quite a few of my views on life) because of his dislike for talking to patients and his inability to express whats really going on inside his head. person that made the list has a very similar taste in television that i do (particularly House and Family Guy lol).

I know there is actually a House, M.D. personality test. I think I saw the link to it on this forum somewhere.

I wonder about Tyler Durden (the Brad Pitt and Edward Norton versions) from Fight Club. What type is the real Tyler Durden and what is it he desires to be as projected in the Brad Pitt version?

Although, if he had a disorder mbti may not apply to him I guess.

I would say Doc Brown is an INTP. Pretty much any mad scientist character is an INTP. The fact the he is a recluse would suggest he isn't E. His excited nature is not E, its classic INTP, when they "Finally invent something that works!" or "It's ALIVE!" in the case of Frankenstein.

hm, interesting. i'd almost say that Nortons character is INTJ (he stays very much in his head but has a pretty materialistic personality, which is why i don't say INTP) but i could be wrong. Pitt's character is definitely extroverted and i'd say very much a J (he knows what he wants out of fight club/project mayhem and will get it no matter what) and probably Intuitive (to come up with such a plan) but i don't know. anyone more familiar with this kind of stuff have any thoughts?

and by the way, i did see that House test, and i tested as, you guessed it, House.

I know Gandalf is hotly debated as INTP/INTJ

I'm no good at this, but I'll toss out a few starwars ones...


Han - ISTP
Definitely an SP, no planning, mechanical, easy. I get the impression that he broods a lot more than he's social, a typically introverted trait.

Luke - INFP
...He isn't.... micromanaging so much. He's an idealist at heart, he's a big picture person. He looks at the force as it embodies all things, not in specific instances... INFP. Besides, he isn't a huge risk taker. He's a pilot, but he doesn't do it for the THRILL. that's why he isn't SP.

Leia - XSFJ
Politician, detail work, committees, a people person, though could easily be a T type. J, fuels punctuality for politic-ness. I'm not so sure I/E. I'd GUESS I, but I could easily be wrong.

Anakin Skywalker - ESFP
Okay, he's really an outgoing person, he's emotional, and a risk taker. Oh, and he's a mechanic and a pilot. All SFP traits. Sometimes I find I/E the hardest to judge really...

I'd like constructive criticism...

28th-September-2008, 05:37 AM
I'd say Sherlock Holmes definitely strikes me as an INTP.
Detached when thinking, tremendous use of logical deduction and analyzing, introverted, often said to be cold and unfeeling, truth-seeker, lover of classical music...


I really, really enjoy those books. ;)

Linus from the Peanuts comics is an INTP. (He's the one with the security blanket.)

6th-October-2008, 08:01 AM
Poirot from Agatha Christie's books is INTJ. Most of the 'general/leader' type characters in fantasy books seem to be ENTJ, like Axis in Sara Douglass's books. The Count of Monte Cristo (after the prison, not before) is a tough decision, though I'm inclined to think that he's INTJ, but has an extremely wide and eccentric array of interests (INTP) but can also verbally sharp (ENTP). Before the prison, he seems to be ESTP or something like that.

And an INTP can't be verbally sharp? You wound me, good sir.

James Black
8th-October-2008, 12:53 AM
Hmm... Being verbally sharp would require me to actually pay more attention to the outside world. I'm content with being detached. I figure, I don't have to show I have a quick-wit for people to realize I'm smart --- even if they think I'm weird because I'm always lost in thought.

Introversion is the way to go! :D

Of course he's an INTP, however, like many of us, he does stray into INTJ catagory sometimes. Although, I think the tenth doctor (the current one) is an INTP, the others will definately be slightly different.

What MBTI type is Willy Wonka? Strange, that one is.

Artifice Orisit
10th-November-2008, 02:32 AM
ESFJ would be my best guess

Extroverted?: Silly cloths and behaviour, interest in making others happy.
Introverted?: Lives mostly alone in factory, likes to keep secrets, socially detached.

Intuitive: Reacts calmly to dramatic situations, short external attention span.

Emotional?: Behaviour is unstable, often prone to signing, dancing and expressive frivolity.
Intellectual?: Inventive, less-compassionate, has internal moral and emotional support.

Perceptive?: Keeps opinions secret, spends the entire movie observing before deciding end.
Judgmental?: Much of the theme is based on good and bad behaviour, their distinctions.

Peter Parker is probably INTP. I don't know about the comics, but the movies definitely portray him as such. He starts off as a nerd who can't vocalize his feelings for Mary Jane. He makes money by being a photographer for his own alter ego, which is probably the most introverted thing you can do. After high school, he majors in Physics, which is an INTP-heavy field.

Bruce Wayne is ISTJ. I feel that if I were in Batman's shoes, I would be having in-depth psychological discussions with all of the criminals instead of beating them up. In fact, I think I would become a criminal simply because laws and society have always seemed superficial to me. Living in Gotham would reduce their legitimacy in my eyes completely.

And what would the Joker be?

del
30th-November-2008, 01:02 PM
And what would the Joker be?

A few friends and I were debating this a while back, and we couldn't seem to agree on anything except that he was some sort of xxTP type.

I would argue that his personality is dominated by the Artisan need for freedom over the NT need for competency. From there he seems to most naturally fit the ESTP "Promoting" Artisan role as described by Keirsey.

A good case can be made for the other xxTP types, though -- especially if you go from cognitive functions. But I generally find it easier to use Keirsey's temperament theory, unless the presence of a cognitive function is overwhelmingly obvious (e.g. the Ne of Calvin, from Calvin an Hobbes).

After some google detective work, the general consensus online seems to be ENTP, which doesn't seem unreasonable.

Linus from Peanuts, of course. I named my son Linus, after Linus Pauling, Linus Torvald, Linus Larrabee and Linus from Peanuts ... I'd say three of the four of them are INTXs.

MAD MEN
Don - ISTJ, but part of me thinks ENTJ, kind of a field marshall type.
Peggy - INXJ - What do you think? Originally, I was certain that she was an SJ, but I'm second-guessing.
Pete - ISFP
Betty - ISFP (interesting that I read Pete and Betty to be the same ... now that I think of it, they do have a lot of similar qualities, Betty is what Pete would be like, were Pete a hot woman)
Joan - ESFJ
The big boss whose name I forget is the only INTP I think. Shockingly low numbers of NTs for an ad agency. Rachel Mencken perhaps also is an NT, maybe INTJ. Sal might be as well.

THE WIRE - The police are full of SJs, but I love Lester, the lone INTJ. The code cracker guy whose name I forget may be an INTP, like an absent-minded professor who finds himself in the police department.

THE SIMPSONS - Lisa Simpson - Seems like an INTP to me.

FREEKS AND GEEKS
Seth Rogan seems secretly INTP. He doesn't talk much, but whenever asked, he's always thought everything through. His attraction to the Band Girl seems to confirm. You get the feeling that in 2-5 years he'll end up in some working-class version of an NT job, like a surveyor.
Lindsay's a total INFJ
Haverchuck is an ESFP (pity the SP born in a NT body), as is the blonde girl
Jason Segal's an ISFP, I think.

ROYAL TENENBAUMS
Etheline - INTJ
Royal - ESFP
Margo - ISFP
Richie - INFJ
Chas - ESTJ - Four minutes, forty-eight seconds. We're all dead. Burned to a crisp.
Eli Cash - ESFJ

I've got one which is a good match. Jon (Dr. Manhatten) from Watchmen.

For those of you who don't know, the funny thing about him is he really becomes INTP after having his "intrinsic field subtracted" and becomes perpetually aware of all past and future actions he has taken and will take, yet knows all his responses are pre-ordained. At one point he tells another character that everyone is a puppet, he's only different because he's a puppet who can see the strings.

Couldn't begin to guess what the movie version is going to be like... other than badly acted (probably.)

* * *

"In November the newspapers call me a crimefighter, so the pentagon says I must fight crime... The morality of my activities escapes me."

"This is where we hold our conversation. It commences when you surprise me with the information that you and Dreiberg have been sleeping together."
"Y-you know about me and Dan?"
"No. Not yet. But in a few moments you're going to tell me."

I think Lisa is an INFJ. I don't think INTPs are geared towards aggressive activism or youthful wangst.

I don't know about that. I'm an extreme INTP (I is heavy only in terms of how I'm most comfortable ... I've extroverted myself quite a bit due to the constraints of living in the world; but the rest are unmitigatedly strong) and I had both youthful "wangst" and activism, though admitedly not as strong as Lisa. Angst isn't really all that unusual for INTPs, given the loneliness/misunderstood thing. I mean, yes, we're cozy as loners, but speaking such a different language from others can be quite daunting. And on the off chance that one ends up meeting someone who does speak the same language, it's terribly hard to go back to being alone after that. I'm recalling her infatuation with the substitute teacher, particularly.

As to activisim, to some degree I don't think activism and being an INTP are mutually exclusive. I was a vegetarian for many years, though not because of the cute fuzzy animals, rather because of the enviro-footprint of meat-eating. To this day, I try to practice low-on-the-foodchain carnivory (is that a word?). I think INTPs can be activists, but they tend to be by NOT doing things rather than by doing things. I refrained from meat, I've also refrained from grapes (immigrant worker issues), Nestle products (baby formula issues in the third world), drinking bottled liquids (environmental stuff), and driving (same). But you're probably right, the Lisa Simpson variety is a bit less INTP-like, more INFJ/P-like.

Decaf
5th-January-2009, 06:31 PM
During the Simpsons Movie and a few episodes of its TV run she is seen going door to door independently collecting signatures for an environmental cause. That right there convinces me that she could be no INTP.

I say that not because I don't believe INTPs can care about those things. Hell, INTPs could have said to have dozens of "isms" attached to themselves at any one time. The problem is with the "activ" fragment.

Still, I'm short on time, so don't think I'm not considering your assertions. I'll get back to you when I get internet in my new SF apartment.

Well, i do agree with McKay, at least with the INT-part. Daniel and Sam i wouldn't type as INTP. They are more outgoing and social than to be introvert, i think.
With Mitchell you could be right though :D

Thank you for the warm welcome.

From what I can tell, daniel and sam don't really initiate in any extroverted behavior that isn't forced by their military duty or triggered by their interests where they become quite verbose on the topic.

Hm, true enough. Though of course we see only their duty-time anyway, so it is probably a lot harder to type'em.

Opinions?

I don't know if Dexter is even realistic enough of a character to type.

The reason I say this is because at his job he seems like an INTP. Yet in his murdering work he seems very much like an INTJ, someone who can complete the job without any passion.

Yet we hear parts about his personal philosophy and his "Code of Harry", and they do sound ISTJ-ish. If you ignore the SJ society-obeying aspects, it kinda fits Dexter.
ISTJs are quiet and reserved individuals who are interested in security and peaceful living. They have a strongly-felt internal sense of duty, which lends them a serious air and the motivation to follow through on tasks. Organized and methodical in their approach, they can generally succeed at any task which they undertake.


ISTJs are very loyal, faithful, and dependable. They place great importance on honesty and integrity. They are "good citizens" who can be depended on to do the right thing for their families and communities. While they generally take things very seriously, they also usually have an offbeat sense of humor and can be a lot of fun - especially at family or work-related gatherings.


ISTJs tend to believe in laws and traditions, and expect the same from others. They're not comfortable with breaking laws or going against the rules. If they are able to see a good reason for stepping outside of the established mode of doing things, the ISTJ will support that effort. However, ISTJs more often tend to believe that things should be done according to procedures and plans. If an ISTJ has not developed their Intuitive side sufficiently, they may become overly obsessed with structure, and insist on doing everything "by the book".


The ISTJ is extremely dependable on following through with things which he or she has promised. For this reason, they sometimes get more and more work piled on them. Because the ISTJ has such a strong sense of duty, they may have a difficult time saying "no" when they are given more work than they can reasonably handle. For this reason, the ISTJ often works long hours, and may be unwittingly taken advantage of.
In conclusion: Fuck if I know, but I'd love to have a Dexter in my city.

Has anyone tried putting together a list of fictional characters by their MBTI types?

ENTP:

- Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes) -- definitely *not* INFP like you see some places. This kid is the living embodiment of Ne. Could be ENFP too, but some comics show a more utilitarian approach (esp. involving business schemes and whatnot), so I made him T.



There's no way Calvin's an ENTP- he lives in his own little world too much for an extrovert. His philosophizing reeks of INFP.

- Gregory House (House, M.D.) -- Yes, I think he's Extraverted. Definitely *not* an NTJ in my opinion. Where's the Ni? Could also be INTP, and I could maybe believe ISTP, but it'd take some pretty strong evidence for S. Honestly, I'm about 50/50 on ENTP or INTP for him.


House is definitely not an extravert. His only non-work related interaction with another human being seems to be wilson and their relationship still seems to be about 50% intellectual. Half the show is about his attempts to avoid seeing his team,patients or boss while still doing his job.

Intuition gives people a fantasy world, not introversion.

I'd believe ENFP, but where's his Fi?

House is definitely not an extravert. His only non-work related interaction with another human being seems to be wilson and their relationship still seems to be about 50% intellectual. Half the show is about his attempts to avoid seeing his team,patients or boss while still doing his job.

He can't function without a team. On the airplane episode, he grabed random passengers to bounce ideas off of. When his team was all fired/quit, he bounced ideas off a janitor and even dressed him up like a doctor so he could brainstorm with him anywhere he wanted.

You could argue that he's an INTP whose thought process has been extroverted for the benefit of the television audience, but I think that would make him, by definition, an ENTP.

Again, most of his energy is directed outwards, even if it is mostly misanthropy and negative. Extrovert doesn't mean "likes people," it has to do with where energy is given and taken.

Sasuke: ISTP appears to be right. He lacks any foresight whatsoever.

Ino: ESFX for sure.

Tsunade: I have a hard time seeing ESTP here. ESTP are materialistic - the type that sells you dubious used cars. Her speciality is medicine, she is basically a doctor. That speaks more for NF. Her personality makes her look like an E. It is ENFX to me.

Orochimaru: His planning make him look more like a J. But ENTP is not impossible.

Jiraiya: That is hard. He reminds a bit of an older Ruffy from One Piece. While both look relatively stupid they are very intelligent under the surface but not in the way that they will ever be intellectuals.

Itachi: INFJ. Because that would be awesome. :p

I was thinking ESTP for Tsunade because of her gambling habits and drinking.I would definitely say EXXP in any case.I think,that despite the fact she's a leader,she displays a lot of P characteristics,such as procrastinating all the time.She might be an N though,but I don't really see her as an F.
ENTP maybe?

I typed Orochimaru as an ENTP becuse of his "mad scientist" tendencies.He might be a J though.

Jiraiya,well he is called a sage in the anime.He's not an intellectual,but he's definitly more mature then say Naruto,despite his pervyness.Mature ESFP maybe?

What about D from the series Vampire Hunter D? Any guesses? I don't know myself...
Definitely introverted, although due more to nurture than nature I suspect.
Nobody that misanthropic could be an S, it takes dedication.
(somebody more knowledgeable about the MBTI could probably prove me wrong)
Definitely a thinker, very calm in combat, likes to talk to his enemies.
Again the lack of hatred towards his enemies suggests a Perceiver, I doubt a Judger could have a civil conversation with his enemies before killing them, although he is trying to hunt down and kill every last vampire because he couldn't fit in with human society… but then it was never suggested that they were welcoming of him either, so perhaps it's also vengeance for not letting him fit-in with them.
It takes a lot to cause it, but once a perceiver has a grudge they don’t let go.

Ed? Cowboy Bebop? ENTP.

Naruto Uzumaki – ESFP Naruto is obvious.

Sasuske is kind of hard to say.
Sasuke Uchiha – ISTJ or ISFJ

Sakura Haruno – ENFJ

Kakashi Hatake – INTP I always enjoy INTP characters in my cartoons.

Sai – INTJ We really don't know enought about Sai to give him a type. But so far INTJ sounds right. Another thing is that he was pretty much raised in a cult so his real personality might start showing later on.

Kiba Inuzuka – ESTP Don't know much

Shino Aburame – INTJ Yea he is def an INTJ

Hinata Hyuga – INFP or ISFP

Choji Akimichi – ESTJ Don't know much

Shikamaru Nara – INTP Another great INTP character

Ino Yamanaka – ENFP

Rock Lee – ESTJ-----Hard working, not too bright though.

Neji Hyuga – IXTJ Don't know enough about him though.

Garra – IXTJ Don't know enough about him..


Jiraiya – ENFP

Tsunade – ESTP I think I know ESTP's well enough to say she is one.

Orochimaru – ENTX He's a scientist, yet also a leader...a poor leader though....so i'm leaning more towards ENTP.

9th-July-2009, 12:07 AM
I agree with most of what's been typed. :)
Just a few things to add...

Tsunade = ENTJ - She's definitely a J. I think she's also intuitive, seeing how, often times, there will be scenes in her office where she's analyzing a tough situation and connecting ideas. ENTJs are born leaders and she seems to fit that roll very well.

Jiraya = ESTP - Definitely an SP Artisan type. He loves to waste time loafing around and checking out girls. This screams ESTP. Not only that but as an Artisan, he writes novels, specifically "sensual" (Se) novels.

Orochimaru = ENTX - I can't really say either... ^^;

Sasuke = IXXJ The trauma he's had in childhood makes it very difficult to come up with an accurate type. From the few eposides show of his childhood before the trauma, he seemed more like an F type.

Haku = ISFJ - Extremely loving and self sacrificing. ISFJs are also well know for sticking to their loved ones even when it's detrimental to them. I'm not so sure about S/N though.

I bet there are plenty of characters that were intended to be written more like us, but because of our familiarity with the subject, stereotypes of us don't even draw the necessary degree of familiarity unless they match the negative stereotypes we're familiar with.

What do you think a positive, possibly non-computer oriented, fictional INTP character would be like?

Xel
10th-July-2009, 03:16 AM
I always thought L from death note was a positive INTP figure. He is portrayed as brilliant yet quirky and odd. Though the show perhaps makes him weirder and quirky than an actual INTP ("I have to sit like this. You see if I sat normally my deductive skills would immediately decrease by roughly 40%" or the constant eating of sweets). Anyway he still is portrayed as the "good guy" of the series. He even shows emotion a few select times, and these few times I think could be called "naive" or "childlike" or "pure" which prevents him from being INTJ. I find it interesting that he screams when he considers the existence of a shinigami a logical possibility but just acts really interested when he actually sees one. A lot of people tend to either love or hate this character but overall he could be called positive in the sense that he isn't simply the computer geek/loser type who never shows emotion and seems too cold to be called "good" in the heroic sense.

I have to disagree with Tsunade. She, to me, sounds like a P. I actually think she is a bad leader. She doesn't have that decision making power that is required to run Konoha. The only good thing about her is that she is strong and she loves Konoha.

Neil Kaffrey is more than likely a rational or idealist, his wit definately insinuates intuition. From there, i assume P type because despite him needing to plan much of his hiests, the planning is due to neccesity, not personality. I would assume he is an E also, for obvious reasons.

My best guess would be ENTP, and if im right, thats a common personality for high profile non-violent criminals.

LPolaright
27th-October-2010, 04:44 PM
I'm also interested with fictional characters and thus practiced a bit with my MBTI skills.

Here's what I've got:



StarGate Universe:

It was really hard to judge who is who in here, Intuitive fits nicholas rush in an instant but then when you think about it he relies more on what he can see and feel although he is constantly fiddling around with abstract ideas. Sensor fits everett in an instant too because his a colonel and he should be satisfied with concrete data rather then abstract but we see that this is actually quite the opposite for him - he tends to believe Rush's facts that are very abstract. He is also great at devising outside the box decisions.

Everett Young - I.N.T.J (Less possibly - I.S.T.J)
Dr. Nicholas Rush - I.S.T.J (Less possibly - I.N.T.J)

A normal human being would take what is being said in the brackets rather then follow my ideas. But thats what I think.



Numb3rs:

The difficulty here was actually the thinking/feeling part - I had to remember scenes where theyd show their preference clearly - and I guess i'm much more distracted with the action around them.

Charles Eppes: ENFP
Don Eppes: ISTP



Castle:

no real comment here.

Richard Castle: ENFP
Detective Beckett: ISTJ



The Mentalist:

was quite easy to tell you the truth. Whats interesting about this character that before the traumatic event that got upon him he was very different (Extraverted, and a Judge, SJ Tempermant, thus sensor and probably a thinker - making him before accident [BA] - ESTJ)

Patrick Jane: INFP (WEEW! the opposite before BA!)



Lie to Me:

this was very very hard to determine whether he is an I.N.T.P or an I.S.T.P. Also I might be wrong about the T - I'm still not sure.

Cal Lightman: I.S.T.P (Perhaps an I.N.T.P, probably just split on the S)

Ok I just finished reading "First Meetings in the Enderverse," And I have come to a conclusion of most types.

Jean Paul Wiggin: ENFP
Theresa Brown(Wiggin): xNTx

Peter Wiggin: ENTJ, I am sure no one in their right mind would debate this.
Valentine Wiggin: INFJ
Andrew Wiggin: ENTP, Ok I had thought he was ENFP like his father until I read how he meet Jane, the computer lady. Definitely a T not an F.

Bean Delphaki: INTP
Petra Arkanian(Delphaki): ESTx, not entirely sure on this one but I think P.

Achilles de Flandres: :confused: ENFJ maybe?

Poke: ISFJ

Colonel Graff: INTJ I am pretty sure on this.

Sister Carlotta: INFJ(maybe ISFJ but I am thinking N)

Jane: very hard to get, but I will think she is INTJ.

Novinha Wiggin(don't remember her other last names): She torments herself like some INFJs I know, so I will go with INFJ on this one.

This is all I can think of for the moment, can't remember all of their names, but I am sure I can type all of them.

MAD MEN
Don - ISTJ, but part of me thinks ENTJ, kind of a field marshall type.
Peggy - INXJ - What do you think? Originally, I was certain that she was an SJ, but I'm second-guessing.
Pete - ISFP
Betty - ISFP (interesting that I read Pete and Betty to be the same ... now that I think of it, they do have a lot of similar qualities, Betty is what Pete would be like, were Pete a hot woman)
Joan - ESFJ
The big boss whose name I forget is the only INTP I think. Shockingly low numbers of NTs for an ad agency. Rachel Mencken perhaps also is an NT, maybe INTJ. Sal might be as well.


Nobody else followed up on Mad Men?

I think ISTP for Don draper actually. He is definitely introverted and doesn't enjoy being around people.
When his new wife throws his birthday party I definitely decided introversion for him
He definitely shows the Ni "sudden revelation" characteristic (as in every idea for an ad that he ever has.)
He displays Se a lot especially when he lays the charm on.
What do you guys think?

I see Roger Sterling as an ESTP.

I can't put my finger on Peggy's type. INTJ?

Joan definitely seems ESFJ to me. She's such a mother hen.

I read ESFP from Sal.

I agree that Rachel Menken could be an NT but we don't really see her enough to know that well

Bert Cooper (The big boss) I also get INTP from, but again he ends up being kind of a minor character so it's hard to tell.

Harry Crane- ENFP?

I can see Betty being an ISFP or a very lonely ESFP.

Nobody else followed up on Mad Men?I've not watched it. I think I watched an episode once. But that's pretty much it.

I don't know how repetitive this is:

Heroes:
Hiro: ENFJ – Wants to be a hero; wants everything to work out, impractical (NF)
Ando: INTP - Computer geek, sceptical of his friend's dreams (NT)
Suresh: INTJ – Researcher (NT); once he starts something, he always follows through
Sylar: INTP – Superhuman understanding of how things fit together: this could be NT or SP, but is constantly searching for himself (NT)
Cheerleader: ISFP – Athlete, adapts well to new situations (SP); trusting until someone breaks trust
Parkman: ISTJ – Law-abiding, unimaginative (SJ); logical, step-by-step thinker

Sherlock (BBC):
Sherlock: INTP – addict; antisocial at times; excitable when something interests him, usually cold, deduction (NT); impulsive
Mycroft: INTx – pulls strings behind the scenes, deduction (NT)
Watson: ISTP – soldier; logical yet unimaginative, rather laid-back (SP); doesn't care what others think
DI Lestrade: ISTP – logical yet unimaginative, rule-breaker (SP)
Moriarty: INTJ – calculating abstract thinker (NT)
Molly: INFP – socially awkward; perceptive of people (NF)

Firefly:
Mal: ISTP – soldier, impartial (in settling arguments), goes with whatever he can, doesn't care what others think
Jayne: ISFP – simple-minded; impulsive, fighter (SP); doesn't care what others think; sentimental
Kaylee: ESFP – bad at concealing emotion (dominant Fe), mechanical prodigy (SP)
Inara: INFJ – always plans ahead; very calm and controlled but seeks harmony, perceptive (NF) doesn't care what others think
Simon: INTP – no idea how to deal with emotions, understands sister, surgeon(NT); no foresight; socially inept
Shepherd Book: INTJ – mysteriously broad knowledge (NT), strategist who sees things others don't
Wash: ISTP – quick-thinking/reflexes, pilot (SP); loyal; socially inept

Comments welcome.

ESFJ- Asuka Soryu (Evangelion)


I'd go for ESTP, especially in the original NGE. Hikari might be a better example of an ESFJ (just look at the way Asuka treats Rei and Shinji. Even the most arrogant Fe-dominant wouldn't act like that). And also because she appears to be a compensatory narcissist, which I've read is common among ESTPs. She actually does resemble an ESTP friend of mine, except more emotional and cynical.

Other Eva characters

ENFP- Misato
INTJ- Gendo Ikari
ENFJ- Kaworu Nagisa
IxFx- Shinji Ikari (INFJ would be a good contrast to Asuka's ESTP)
ENTP- Ryoji Kagi
ISTP- Kensuke Aida
INTP- Kozo Fuyutsuki

Here's a huge list of characters... Harry Potter series. Also, characters from LOTR, and how about Robert Langdon?

Edit: I just saw someone did HP and Gandalf. Ooops :-)

Mistake: Kaylee would have dominant Se. I think I'm stuck on her. ESFP or ESFJ?

Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyoujin

Eren Jaeger- ENFJ

He's definitely NF, and uses action to express his idealism, or what he believes is morally right. Highly goal-driven.

Stabbing the human trafficking gang, or retrieving Armin from the Titan without any regard for his own safety. He often acts without rational analysis, and more heat of the moment type situations. Inferior Ti, maybe?


Mikasa Ackerman- ISTJ

"You don't stand a single chance to win, unless you fight."


Armin Arlert- INFJ

Idealist, like Eren. Plans strategically, but not an action-driven character.


Jean Kirschstein- XSTX

He's difficult to type so far. Jean is a realist, which contrasts heavily with Eren. He's described as being suited for leadership by his colleagues, so it's hard to say if he leans to J or P.


Annie Leonhardt- ISTP

Isn't blindly loyal to anyone, and looks out for self-interest, rather than completely obey leaders.

[Referring to only the most elite of trainees are allowed enlistment in the Military Police] "Why in this world are the people most capable of opposing the Titans the only ones given the privilege of avoiding them entirely?"


Connie Springer- ESFP

Sasha Braus- INFP(?)

Lance Corporal Rivaille- IXTJ

Hannes- ISFP

Dot Pixis- ENTP
