MBTI: Light is an ENTJ

Posted in MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , on 04/08/2015 by Taylor Holt


I’m far from perfect when it comes to typing. When it comes to spelling errors, I’m king, but typing is way different even though I usually combine the two.

But some things, man, I just know. And one thing I know is that Light Yagami, of the show/comic Death Note is an ENTJ. I would think it petty to write an entire article arguing what many others don’t believe but I see it more as bringing up a different perspective. Sure, I’ve covered this before but it wasn’t enough. I love the show too much to not bring it up enough to annoy you. Continue reading

Ever had an interest in anime? No? I’m impressed you made it this far.

But for those of you who have been intrigued by these big eyed, spikey haired cartoons yet have never known where to start, I’m here to help.

You could call me an enthusiast because  I’d be far from a connoisseur which is why this is the perfect article for you. Below are a few top notch shows or films to help you not only get started, but really have an idea of the kind of stories and themes you’ll come across. It’s scary, I know, but we can get through this together. You won’t have to complain about the same rebranded crap Hollywood makes because you’ve got an entirely new medium at your disposal.

There’s only nine listed, as this isn’t meant to be a top ten. Continue reading

When the Character is You

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/24/2014 by Taylor Holt


We all relate to certain characters in the fiction we like. Heck, it’s part of why we like it. Sometimes it’s as simple as empathizing with a character’s problems or seeing ourselves as the struggling anti-hero we’re watching onscreen.

But then there are the times when the character actually is us. It goes beyond just having things and common and maybe you don’t even like this character- but it’s you, or us rather, as the audience. Continue reading

MBTI: Death Note Cast

I’m all for variety, but can I just get these out of the way? The show has been over forever, they’ve all been typed to death (pun?) but I haven’t been able to put my mark on them.

One of the great things about the show is the number of personalities it deals with. While some have complained that the characters don’t ever change and there was a lack of development, I’ve gotta say, it’s what I thought was interesting. Everyone’s lives are put on hold because of Kira and the world changes rapidly due to his rule. Ain’t no time fer yer special moments, there’s a crime to solve! Yee-ha!

Resembling something between the Joker, a bat, and demon, the Shinigami that changed the world through just a drop of a notebook and a whole lot of chance is one of the most clear representations of an ENTP in fiction.

Definitely playing up to the trickster role, Ryuk didn’t have to do much for his plan to be set in motion. And by “plan,” I mean doing something for the hell of it and seeing what happened. Continue reading

I’ve been waiting to type Mello since day one since coming back to the site in July. When he first appears in Death Note, I was laughing at the stern pronunciation of his speech, his haircut, and that these genius kids keep getting younger and younger in the series.

But as the show goes on, Mello prove himself to be more and more competent as a character and as far as I was concerned, turned out to be one of the most interesting. In a show/comic full of Intuitives, Mello’s personality is a refreshing change of pace from all the mind games as he brings the most action the entire series saw. Continue reading

MBTI: Light and Near- ENTJ and INTJ

Posted in MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff, MBTI Whatever with tags , , , , , , on 07/30/2013 by Taylor Holt


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

*Potential Spoilers*

In the world of Death Note, “The Greatest Detective in the World” is posed with the task of finding a serial killer that murders criminals by supernatural means of a heart attack.

What’s the perfect type for the eccentric loner, solving crimes through an ‘ends justify the means’ view? One who’s willing to bridge the gap between the real world and the paranormal? INTP, of course. L’s Ti comes in clearly by his way of thinking on his toes rather than Te’s desire to take a step back and reflect on given information. Continue reading

Death is a Pale, White Guy…Usually.

After having invested so much time in Death Note, it seemed an interesting idea of a grim reaper-type figure just following you around all day. Even weirder is the idea that death would show up to tell you that you’re dead and now, you gotta go with him.

Death is a pretty wacky thing. You’re born, you start to die, then you die. What a cycle! So it’s not that crazy for the personification of death to have a few weird tendencies himself. Death comes in many forms, but a lot of times he just looks like a guy. Below is a short list of appearances Death has made in movies, ranging from the awesome…to the not so awesome. Continue reading
