Myers Briggs: Batman
If you read my Myers Briggs post correlating movies to their respective type, you know I’m a fan of the MBTI test. And seeing as how Dark Knight Rises was as great as we wanted it to be, I still feel the need to write about all things pertaining to it. Below are a list of characters, primarily villains, who fit into the MBTI types. One thing that’s so fun about Batman’s villains are the fact that each one is a different aspect of his personality. There’s a whole science to this crap, look it up. Once again, if you have an interest in Myers Briggs, here’s a link. Last Batman post for a while I think. I’ve got a life, I swear. Okay fine, I don’t.

Part of my obsession with this test is that, being a writer myself, it can give tremendous insight into character development. Nobody’s stories are filled with characters better for this little division of psychology than Batman.
