Pokémon – Conway: INTP

Guest Post by Andrew, ENTJ

Pokémon Anime Franchise

Dominant Introverted Thinking (Ti): Conway is an intellectual first and last. He takes pleasure in researching statistics for upcoming battles and has the most fun when he is using his brain. Conway never shares his thought processes with others, preferring to work things out in his head rather than thinking out loud (and excluding input from other people). However, after figuring everything out, he proudly shares his conclusions. Conway has a focus on the theoretical foundations of his battle plans; while this gives him creativity beyond that of Ash, Dawn, or Paul (all Te-users), it also causes him to get caught up in his head rather than pay attention to the reality of his situation.

Auxiliary Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Conway likes to come up with battle plans that are workable in every conceivable situation; he takes all of his opponent’s possible plans into account when strategizing. When he fails to do this, or an opponent hits him with something he didn’t think of, his thinking becomes random and ineffective, often costing him the match. Conway teaches his Pokemon unusual moves that have nothing to do with their respective types. He has a tendency to appear seemingly from nowhere at any time.

Tertiary Introverted Sensing (Si): Conway likes to show off his wealth of knowledge, proudly proclaiming to Dawn on one occasion that he has the answer to any question she could ask. Indeed, he seems very well-informed, having heard of a few obscure legends, and knowing about Pokemon attacks that are barely ever used. Conway researches his opponent for every battle to gain what information he can beforehand.

Inferior Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Conway is attracted to Dawn, and he wants her approval, even though he can’t find a way to get it (in fact, she finds his antics creepy). Although he appears hyper-logical, Conway has genuine pride in his Pokemon. He can effectively take part in tag battles (where two trainers work as a team) and he speaks the language of cooperation, even though his collaborations with his teammates can be a little forced much of the time.
