I had to word the title carefully so as not to make it sound like I was typing “Heroes,” the show and so it wouldn’t so like the other post, MBTI: The Types (of Types) of Heroes. Though I guess any writer who knows how to bring in the readers would have made it sound like both of those posts just to get everybody. But that ain’t me.

If you’ve come here enough, you’ve seen links to what has to be one of the greatest sites on the internet, TV Tropes. Yes, even better than If that’s a real site, I had no idea. And from TV Tropes and Typing, can come the realization that every type fits well within the confines of some of the many sorts of heroes fiction can bring us. So while we’ve described how each type is represented in the Hero mold, let’s reverse this to see how the Hero mold can fit certain types.

If you see the name, there is a link to it. Continue reading

MBTI: Inside Out

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Guardians, MBTI Idealists, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , , , on 09/01/2015 by McCutcheon


Emotions that have emotions? Muh mind is blown! Surprise, Disney and Pixar are still breaking records together with “heartwarming comedies that are fun for the whole family!” And it’s not like it’s all just hype either, their work is pretty much always solid. It should be, right? They spend enough money to afford a small army.

Now we explore the feelings of the feelings. It wasn’t too hard to get a bead on these characters given that the personification of feelings are going to have their own feelings expressed pretty boldly. Continue reading

MBTI: Can Chewbacca be Typed?

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , , on 08/11/2015 by McCutcheon


The closer the release date of Star Wars is, and the new Battlefront game, the more people ask about Star Wars characters. Coincidence? No.

I’ve done the main cast I think, or at least the ones people really care about. But what about Chewie? And Ponda Baba? Let’s stick with Chewie. He growls and whatever other noises he makes and that’s it pretty much. So surely we can’t. I mean, a dog can have a personality of sorts but that doesn’t mean he can be typed no matter how many times you’ve “jokingly” done it.

But there’s enough to his character that we’ve got to be able to find something there resembling an MBTI type. Continue reading

MBTI: S Heroes, N Heroes

Posted in MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , on 07/30/2015 by McCutcheon


Hoo buddy lemme tell ya somethin’ right quick. Never before now has the line between Sensing and Intuition been more blurred. Right now there’s an epidemic online and it’s called confusion. It takes place in the mind and if you’re not careful you could end up writing a bunch of nonsense just to get an introduction down.

Here’s a post giving you the simplest way to tell between a Sensor hero and an Intuitive one. Since the two should usually be pretty obvious, this might seem unnecessary. But occasionally we get a character who seems a bit more complex or well-written and it could throw a homey off. Continue reading

MBTI: I don’t dislike INTJs. Or INFJs, or INFPs…

Posted in MBTI Idealists, MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , on 07/28/2015 by McCutcheon

I don’t get much mail compared to say, however much mail a more popular internet personality probably gets (Let’s say a million letters a day) but I get enough to start forming an opinion about who’s reading my stuff. A few months ago, somebody more popular than me posted the Brutally Honest Profiles post and the view counter has shot up and stayed higher ever since, which is cool.

And it’s also expected that with more people reading, you’re just going to have more people who don’t like what you’re saying or how you’re saying it, which is fine. But let’s clear some stuff up. Continue reading

MBTI: Tropic Thunder

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Guardians, MBTI Idealists, MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , , , , on 07/23/2015 by McCutcheon


One of the most quotable movies pretty much ever, Tropic Thunder is a comedy I always think I’m sick of until I watch it again. Then the madness starts and I have to go through the whole thing. It’s not even a choice.

I remember people standing outside of the theater telling us not to watch the movie because it was promoting hatred. Then we were all thinking “Well, we’ve GOT to see it now.” The moral of these last two sentences is that trying to ruin something won’t work if you make it appear edgy and offensive.

MBTI: The ESTP and ISTJ Team-Up

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , on 07/09/2015 by McCutcheon


There are certain types that always seem to be thrown together. You’ve got your mismatched and ready-to-murder each other INTJ and ESFP, the opposite but similar ISTP and ENTP, and now we’ve got ISTJ and ESTP.

But unlike ISTP and ENTP, who will usually get along and the INTJ/ESFP pairing where the two can’t stand each other, the ISTJ and ESTP team up will be a combination of the two- Disgust at first, with eventual understanding of the others’ strengths and weaknesses. Continue reading

MBTI: Adapt What is Useful

Posted in MBTI Whatever with tags , , on 06/29/2015 by McCutcheon


If you know me, you know I’m a fan of Bruce Lee. Most of you don’t know me so most of you don’t know that. Now you do.

We’ll get to that.

I was talking to a friend on MBTI who felt that they had it all figured out. I didn’t put “figured out” in quotations because he didn’t use those words but the attitude was there. He felt that MBTI could only provide a limited about of information in which to go by and that other personality indicators were broader, therefore better.because hey, only 16 personalities? That’s not enough to encompass the human race.

Yes it is. Continue reading

MBTI: Game of Thrones’ Houses

It’s always interesting, the idea that your lineage would have a symbol for them and you. What would yours be? Everybody would like to think it would be as awesome as a wolf or dragon but somebody’s got to end up with an open palm holding flower petals right?

Well this isn’t giving a sigil to types but typing the houses already in play in Game of Thrones. What are the proud Lannisters and the secluded and stubborn Greyjoys? See if you agree. Continue reading

MBTI: Keirsey’s Intuitive Bias

Posted in MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , on 06/04/2015 by McCutcheon


It was kind of a shock to me to find out a lot of people blame David Keirsey for the type community’s preference for Intuitives over Sensors. You know what I’m talking about, and it gets made fun of on here pretty regularly. The idea that Intuitives are not only more rare, but that rarity in turns also helps to make a more unique individual that can not only do what you do- but do it better and with time to spare.

Now plenty of people will claim they don’t have a bias against Sensors when that’s simply not true. And supposedly, Keirsey is a major reason for this. Well, that’s crap. Continue reading
