Delia Ketchum ISFJ | Pokemon #ISFJ #MBTI

Introverted Sensing (Si): Delia seems satisfied in her role as a conventional mother in a small town, tending the garden, cleaning the place, and cooking for her son and his friends when he’s home.  She sometimes compares Ash to his father at whatever point he is at in his journey; she is impressed that Ash reached Viridian City in only one day, while it had taken his father four days!  When Delia watches Ash compete in Pokemon Leagues, she brings along a camera, hoping to record his battles for posterity.  When she catches Ash staying up late the night before he is due to begin his journey, she allows him to stay up, but only if he watches an educational program to inform his choice of a Pokemon the following morning.

Can INFJs use Ti more than Fe?

Kerissa asked: Is this situation possible, or am I misreading myself? I think that I’m an INFJ, but that I rely on my Ti more than my Fe. I’m still fairly young and I read somewhere that Fe develops later than some other functions. All the tests type me as an INTJ, but I’m almost positive I use Ti and Fe. According to function stacks, I can’t use Ni as my dominant function and Ti as my second one, but that’s how I would think I think.

Always trust your self knowledge before you trust the test.

What you’re describing is a function loop, where you get stuck using either your two introverted functions or your two extraverted functions and neglect the other two. Stop doing that. It’s not good for you.

The best way to get out of it is to focus on using the two functions that you’re not using as much more often. This will help bring you into a more balanced state.

Ginny Weasley ESTP | Harry Potter #MBTI #ESTP

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Ginny likes physical activities.  She practices Quidditch in secret even though her brothers never let her play with them, and she would go to the Yule Ball with any boy for the opportunity to dance.  Ginny is quick to act, lax about following rules, and adept at coming up with plausible lies on the spot when she has to cover her tracks.  She doesn’t back down from a fight even when she’s badly injured or sure to lose, and she will jinx people who annoy her without hesitation.  Ginny favors instant gratification; when she tries to win Harry’s affections, Hermione has to persuade her to choose a strategy that will take some time.

Star Wars

Qui-Gon Jinn ISFP | Star Wars #MBTI #ISFP

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Although he is a respected Jedi Master, Qui-Gon is regarded as somewhat of a rebel, as he tends to follow his own agenda rather than the Jedi Council’s. He has his own morality that he holds as sacrosanct, even above the Jedi Code, and he doesn’t mind violating others’ wishes, secretly or not, to do what he thinks is right. Qui-Gon sees goodness and worth in nearly everyone he meets; this turns out to be a tragic flaw due to his dealings with Anakin, a Continue reading

Giovanni – Pokemon: INTJ

Giovanni INTJ | Pokemon #MBTI #INTJ

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Giovanni is nothing if not farsighted in his plans.  He always has some scheme in mind, whether to give out cruise tickets to trainers in order to steal their Pokemon, the backing of a long-lasting science project to clone the legendary Pokemon Mew, or plotting to gain control of three other legendary Pokemon: Landorus, Tornadus, and Thunderus.  Even when he dismissively sends Jessie, James, and Meowth on some special mission, he is not merely keeping them out of the way; he is also having them (unwittingly) perform some needed task for him, such as spying on Team Magma and Team Aqua in Hoenn, or on Team Galactic in Sinnoh.  He realizes whenever one of his plans is foiled, and cuts his losses when he has to.

Paul – Pokemon: ISTJ

Paul ISTJ | Pokemon #MBTI #ISTJ

Introverted Sensing (Si): Memories of Paul’s past dominate his present.  His overwhelming and overbearing emphasis on having a team of powerful Pokemon comes from a crushing defeat of his brother, Reggie, that he personally witnessed.  Paul remembers the details of how and when he captured each of his Pokemon, and recounts different circumstances when they are relevant.  In deciding whether to keep a newly caught Pokemon on his team, Paul goes by two criteria: what moves the Pokemon knows and past battling results, and he makes sure to find out everything he can about a newly caught Pokemon before deciding to train it.  Although he will not hesitate to release any Pokemon who fails to make the cut in either category, he makes an exception for his Chimchar, who has already demonstrated unusual power; he puts in a great effort to unlock this power for a long time before finally giving up.  Although Paul has a low opinion of Reggie as a trainer, he uses Reggie’s help to train his own Pokemon.  Paul is very hierarchically aware, and his respect is mostly reserved for those who are above him on the social ladder (e.g. his elders, battle referees, and trainers who have bested him).

Douglas Adams ENTP | The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy #MBTI #ENTP

Ne: Douglas Adams had a lot of different interests and was very enthusiastic about them. His storylines are kind of random and sometimes hard to follow. He liked traveling and liked America because of the openness of the culture. Sometimes he was clumsy. He thought life and everything was amazing because of the improbability of it.  Continue reading
