There are a lot of goods and bads to each type. Of course, right? But it’s not like there are any awards for this stuff, it’s pretty much just some weird idea floating around the internet these days. It’s in some books too but I’ve almost forgotten what those are.

So when it comes down to it, who’s the best at what? Who would you most rather have at your side when some frat guy starts talking trash to you in front of your girlfriend? Who’s the type you want backing you up when some dude gives you a snotty look when he’s hanging out with his girlfriend? And why does everything have to be about fighting?

It doesn’t! There’s more variety after the jump! Continue reading

Hopefully you’re familiar with Keirsey and the absolutely bangin’ work he’d done over the course of his 91-year life. Keirsey passed away last July but isn’t that normally when a person’s work really begins to become appreciated?

For all the character typing we’ve done, much of the research goes back to Keirsey as well as the idea for typing characters in the first place. And who did Keirsey use as model for his different groups? The Wizard of OZ of course. Each of the core characters played a specific part in the story much like each group (no matter who annoys you the most) plays an important role in society. Continue reading

MBTI: NF Villains and Other Miscreants

Sure, they’re out there. There have been a few on here. But for the few that can be named, there’s a nine out of ten chance that whatever villain whose presence you’re enjoying isn’t a good ol’ Idealist.

The answer seems obvious enough given that on average, your “run-of-the-mill” Idealist loves people and just wants a big ol’ hug, blah blah blah…But not every Rational wants to poison the city’s water supply nor every Artisan want to rob, rape and kill- so where are the NF villains?

MBTI: Qui-Gon Jinn- ENFP

Posted in MBTI Idealists, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , , on 11/11/2013 by Taylor Holt


Regardless of type, it seems the best Jedi, at least on the light side of the Force, tend to lean to the Idealist side of things. Something about being one with the universe, respecting all walks of life and having vaguely awesome super powers just gives them an edge other types don’t have.

Qui-Gon bounces back and forth between a couple strong possibilities but ENFP seems to be the best fit, as he’s in tune with the living force, has the best in mind for all, yet is often described as a maverick- great at what he does, but the guy just won’t follow the rules. What Qui-Gon? You don’t want to be on the stuffy council? Continue reading
