This one took me a bit, not gonna lie. But after using my own methodology because I’m just like, so super full of myself, ISFP seems the right fit.

The Boy Who Lived is goes from the little room under the stairs to being the most famous wizard of all time. How does he deal with it? A lot of shrugging, a little bit of self-doubt and a whole lot o’ love.

MBTI: VOLDEMORT- ENTJ

It could have only come down to two choices, right? INTJ or ENTJ. We must have gone over the differences a hundred times by now but there’s always a new way to word it.

Tom Marvolo, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Tom Riddle, You-Know-Who; they’re all named to denote the most evil of evil. The guy who has about as much going for him as Satan himself. But unlike the only other type he could be confused for, the INTJ, Voldemort, once powerful enough, prefers to literally be on the front lines of the battle, making sure he’s seen. Because hiding in the shadows isn’t nearly as much fun as destroying the light head-on. Not when you’ve got the power anyway. Continue reading

MBTI: Hermione Granger- ESTJ

If you had to think of the know-it-all character that actually might know it all, Hermione is a great character. While it may be tough to balance the lead, the funny guy, and the smart one without making any of them too bland and stereotypical, all characters pull off their tropes with unique flair.

Much of Hermione’s traits appear in the form an ESTJ’s would; often times correct, many times difficult to handle. Smart, competent and direct, Hermione shows off some of the best traits an ESTJ character can display. Crazy how often they’re portrayed as the villain but with Te as their first function, it’s no wonder why. Continue reading

Game of Thrones Needs More Beric Dondarrion

You can have your Jon Snows and your Daenerys Targaryens and ‘Battle of the Bastards’ was awesome. But I’d rather be looting Lannister camps with The Lord of Lightning and dealing out sweet justice wherever it calls me.

MBTI: Ron Weasley- ESFP

This is a bit of an obvious one, ey?

The bumbling sidekick who isn’t as talented as the main hero? Check? Comic relief? Check. Always willing to put themselves in dangerous situations with hardly any thought to their own safety? Oh yeah. Though his competence still shows through from time to time.

There are plenty of ways to write an ESFP but in stories like these, the funny right-hand man is needed not only for levity in an otherwise dark story, but to give our hero something to bounce off of. Being heroic with no one around is much harder to write than if you have the best friend around who doesn’t mind pointing out how insane the current situation is. That’s Ron. Continue reading

MBTI: Rubeus Hagrid- ESFJ

If there’s a trend to be noticed in ESFJ figures of fiction, specifically with male characters, is that they’re just as much likely to give you a semi-painful hug as they are knock your head off with a well-placed punch…that is, if you threaten a loved one.

From The Thing to Baymax, Allen the Alien to Superman, Hagrid seems to fit right into the functions of dominant Fe/auxiliary Si in a way that has him living day-to-day, taking care of those around him. You’d think a half-giant living in a world of magic would be doing more with himself (whatever that might be) but when you’ve got everything you need, why get greedy? Continue reading

Pixar, You Beautiful Idiot

Disney and Pixar will make money no matter what and that’s fine. People are saying Finding Dory is actually good and that’s cool. But man if I don’t weep for what could be.
