“So, I see a lot of NTJs as villains, but I know that’s kind of a stereotype. What would each type look like as villains?”
Let’s start with the most stereotyped and then go from there.
These are typically the villains with a long-term, ingenious plan for total control. They have a meticulous strategy and follow it with such precision that you don’t know it’s happening. They’re able to revise when opportunities present themselves and can occasionally be defeated when they begin using their Se too much (aka being reckless). They will take over the system and rewrite it singlehandedly.
Examples: Kahn (Star Trek), Iago (Othello), Loki, The Master (Doctor Who), Megneto, Lord Voldemort, Irene Adler
This is the villain that everyone thinks is insane. They are unpredictable because they are so full of ideas and often act on impulse. They can read your motivations and will manipulate you and infuse your life with chaos that is out of your control. They are capable of setting terror to your entire city and enjoy taking away people’s security.
Examples: the Joker, Jim Moriarty, Mr. Teatime (Discworld), Charles Augustus Magnussen
This villain is completely self-motivated by his own suffering and acts purely for his own interest. They are angry will gladly force you to suffer so that you can feel the same pain that they feel. Other people are expendable so long as the vision is fulfilled. They’re able to recognize all the possibilities and typically suffer from some type of mental instability or false impression of the world.
Examples: Harry Osborn (The Amazing Spiderman)
These villains are long-term planners, that can read your emotions and will used them to cause you anguish. These are the type most likely to genuinely convince you that they’re your friend and then burn your world. They are motivated primarily by either greed, vengeance, twisted idealism or a combination of the three. They are often the moral villain, who truly believes that their cause is right…but has the wrong solution.
Examples: Ras Al Guhl, Adolf Hitler, Hanz (Frozen), Jean Grey
This villain will improvise on the go, but they are also capable of fulfilling long-term goals (frightening), and is usually clever enough to avoid getting captured. They will read your emotions, manipulate you and fake true emotion themselves. They are reckless and will use your environment to kill you brutally. Also, typically super coordinated.
Examples: Bucky Barnes, Mystique
These villains are bent on forcing you to do what they want by implementing unnecessary and extreme rules. They love to destroy your freedom of speech and would eliminate freedom of thought if possible. They typically attempt to do this by squashing new ideas with their iron fists and making rules against it. They want to know about everything and will probably have a way of spying on you to make sure that you’re following the rules.
Examples: Mother Gothell (Tangled), Saddam Hussein, Delores Umbridge
This villian is the ultimate sadist. They react in the moment and will inflict pain or kill you to punish you for what you’ve done to them, and they don’t need evidence to prove that you’re at fault (if there are multiple suspects, they will kill all of them). They like to throw grown-up tantrums and don’t care about your feelings because everything is about their own suffering (until they decide to try inflicting that pain on you).
Examples: Anakin Skywalker, Nero
This villain is motivated by the crappy baggage they carry around with them from their past. They want to make you pay for wronging them … Or they were brought up by an obsessive controlling parent that has taught them a warped moral code that they still believe in firmly. They will fool you into believing they are kind and sweet and then knife you in the back.
Examples: Jafar (Aladin), Jack Torrence (haven’t seen it, so I can’t verify, but evidently),
