MBTI: Pacific Rim

As much as critics want to rip Pacific Rim apart, people seem to really be into it. There’s something about not having to care whether an entire city gets destroyed by massive monsters and giant robots, be it in water or city.

And while the Kaiju and Jaegers were definitely the main event, all the characters that controlled them were different enough to be typed on their own, leaving only the “main events” to be untyped. Continue reading

MBTI: Light and Near- ENTJ and INTJ

As far as rivalries go, there’s really only a few noteworthy examples in the massive world of fiction. It’s easy to write characters that have opposing goals but few succeed in making the antagonist and protagonist stand out in the crowded house of film, TV, and literature.

So while Death Note’s ultimate rivalry was undoubtedly between L and Light, Light’s continued battle with Near was also filled with suspense and excitement. Many take Light as an INTJ which is understandable to a point- until you meet Near. Here are some key differences and similarities between the two, as characters and their respective types.

For further reading on Light’s type, check this out. Continue reading

MBTI: Magneto- ENTJ

The Master of Magnetism himself has a type almost made just for him. The charisma, power, and entitlement that is Magneto is the longest running X-Men villain for a reason. As powerful as Professor X, Wolverine and Jean Grey may be, there’s little they’ve been able to do to Magneto over the years aside from temporarily slow him down.

For the Professor and Jean? Just add a helmet and continue on for world domination. For Fox’s favorite adamantium-laced show pony? He may be the weakest in the face of The Brotherhood; because the ENTJ has got to have his entourage. Continue reading

As much as it pains me to write on a Disney character, ENFPs just seem to fit into the Disney mold so well. I’m a guy; Aladdin, The Lion King, Hercules were the only ones I cared about. I’m a guy, my taste is limited.

It could be their cheery, upbeat disposition. It could be their readiness to jump into unfamiliar situations and their proneness to involving themselves in on-the-spot romances (while keeping it “G” in the films of course). Or it could be their way of motivation for change that allows an hour-and-a-half long film to feel even shorter by keeping things funny and exciting.

Whichever the reason (psst…it’s all three), none fit ENFP as well as Hans Christian Anderson’s Ariel. Continue reading

MBTI: Benson- ESTJ

Posted in MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , on 07/24/2013 by Taylor Holt


No children’s cartoon character may have ever displayed the ESTJ functions as well as Benson the pissed-off gumball machine has. It almost seems as though an ESTJ description had been read to the creators and they went off of that.

The job, the yelling, the disposition. It’s the Supervisor all right. Continue reading

MBTI: Harley Quinn- ESFP

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , , on 07/23/2013 by Taylor Holt


Sorry, Intuitives, nothing “N” about the Joker’s girlfriend. Extraverted Sensing is Quinn’s buddy; much more than Extraverted Intuition.

The Clown Prince of Crime’s girlfriend is the perfect combination of endless optimism- and a never-ending supply of crazy. Yet fans love her.

Sounds like ESFP to me. Continue reading

Of all the Jedi in the Star Wars saga, none have ever really compared to the awesomeness a green little old man alien embodies. His wisdom is still blowing minds to this day, if it’s the viewer’s first time watching the movies, or their 5ooth.

And what type is best suited to train future generations through firmness, steadiness, and innate will to understand you like no other can offer?

ENTJ, that’s who.

Just kidding, INFJ. Duh. Continue reading

MBTI: Selene- ISFJ

Posted in MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , on 07/22/2013 by Taylor Holt


Most ISFJs are known for being shy, quiet, hard working, and loyal. This could be tough to take any of this into account when typing a vampire that’s been around for hundreds of year whose emotions have pretty much been stripped away after centuries of killing and drinking blood, but keep in mind that

Selene has had her job to keep her busy all this time…and we all know how ISFJs love their work. Continue reading

MBTI: The Joker- ENTP

Posted in MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , on 07/22/2013 by Taylor Holt


Was there ever any doubt? The Prince of Knaves has only ever gone between a couple different types aside from simply being labeled “insane” (read Super Sanity) and just dropped as a typing candidate. But while others types take a step back and say “Why would anybody do that?” in a seemingly senseless scenario, the ENTP may have already done it.

In every medium, the Joker can be typed as ENTP. From harmless prankster to the modern-day horror show that wears his own face, he fits this type to a near perfect degree. His willingness to go to extremes that other characters find ridiculous and/or repulsive are, in many cases, the things to confuse many on what his preferences are, functionally speaking. This is where Extraverted Intuition comes into play. Continue reading

MBTI: Raiden- ISFP

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , on 07/19/2013 by Taylor Holt


Of all the characters of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, no opinion is as polarized toward a character than the surprise protagonist of Metal Gear Solid 2 himself, Raiden. Aka “White Devil,” aka “Jack the Ripper” aka “Why-the-hell-am-I-playing-as-this-guy?”

Normally, a character with so much controversy surrounding them tends to be a type more willing to go to extremes. But Raiden’s faults and problems lie mostly in the fact that players were thought to be playing as the normal hero of the game, Solid Snake.

But after about a third of the game was completed (if that), you switch over to a guy that in many ways, seems the opposite of Snake. He’s not gruff. He’s not world weary. And he looks like a woman. A very. pretty. woman. Do these things alone type Raiden? Nah, they don’t hardly factor in. Here’s what does… Continue reading
