MBTI: Snape- INTJ

A great representation of the INTJ who’s real master plan you never saw coming until it was too late, Severus Snape’s backstory has got to be the saddest in all of Harry Potter lore.

We’ll be going over some aspects to the INTJ they don’t like to talk about until you pretend they don’t understand that side of humanity. What am I talking about? You’ll see. Continue reading

MBTI: Harry Potter- ISFP

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

v1

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

MBTI: Ron Weasley- ESFP

ron

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

hag4 (2)

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

MBTI: DC characters are hard to type

Posted in MBTI Whatever with tags , , on 10/07/2015 by McCutcheon

DC1

You might have noticed the amount of Marvel characters over DC (or any other company) on this site. There are a few reasons for that. One is that I grew up with Marvel and I’m much more familiar with them. So it’s natural to do more research on top of what I already know to definitively (or at least confidently) type their characters.

But that’s not really it. It has more to do with the style of the way the characters are written, and what sets them apart from other companies in the same industry. Continue reading

MBTI: Hero Typing Tropes

hero18

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 BubbaliciousBlackBubbleButts.com. 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: Ocelot- ENTP

ocelot1

“The world today has become too soft. We’re living in an age where true feelings are suppressed. So we’re going to shake things up a bit.”

You’ve got tricksters, and then you’ve got magnificent bastards. If [Revolver] Ocelot isn’t the latter, then I haven’t been playing Metal Gear Solid and where am I mother, just take me home, I’m crazy and smell fresh bread. I hear it’s amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hara-Kiri Rock.

I need scissors! 61! Continue reading

MBTI: Liquid Snake- ESTP

liquid3

You think you know Liquid? You don’t know SNAKE!

Considering he’s only been in one game so far (His body anyway, up until Phantom Pain), Liquid, whose real name remains unknown, has left an impression. A renegade clone of the greatest soldier to ever live, Liquid was determined to get the remains of his “father” back…or blow everyone up using the world’s more ridiculous and potent weapon.

That’s not much of a plan but it still demands to be recognized and taken seriously. Yeah, this sounds like ESTP. Continue reading
