Extroverted Sensing (Se): Feyd-Rautha is entirely given over to physical pleasures. He enjoys food and the company of women, but his first love is gladiatorial combat. He fights to the death for the thrill of battle and the adoration of fans, and he cheats every time to ensure that he will always wi Continue reading
Dina asked: Hi! I have taken many different personality tests (keeping in mind, they probably weren’t, individually, very accurate), and half the time I got ENTJ and the other half INTJ. I did much more research (a good deal of which was on this site) in order to get a better idea of which I was more affiliated with.
My question is, is it possible or even probable for someone to be directly between types? I seem to fit into bits of either depending on the category (communication, Leadership, emotions, etc.) Thanks for humoring me! Godspeed!
p.s. This site is the most in-depth and well thought out that I found so far. Bravo!
See the bottom of my FAQ page.

Si: Miss Havisham is fixated on the past, so much so that she keeps her entire house exactly as it was on the day of her canceled wedding, even as it disintegrates around her. She approaches her entire life based on her experience with tragedy in love, trusting a select few people (Estella, Mr. Jaggers, Pip) and raising Estella for the sole purpose of breaking the hearts of men. However, she still allows a few visitors whom she knows from her past, like Miss Camilla, even if she doesn’t like them. Continue reading

Dominant Si: Gordon takes a very traditional approach to his job. He resists the corruption around him–despite the fact that his partner pressures him to join in–but he also accepts the Gotham police department as it is and does not attempt to actively fight the corruption. It takes him some time to grow used to working with Batman, but once he does, it becomes habit. Gordon has trouble adjusting to changes in Gotham’s crime rate. He learned his job in a corrupt, crime-ridden city, and when the crime rate goes down after the Joker is recaptured, Gordon does not change strategy. He nearly loses his job as police commissioner because the city authorities are tired of him behaving as though the city still has a serious crime problem. Continue reading

Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling
Extroverted Sensing (Se): Whatever she is doing, Bellatrix likes to be in the center of the action. This especially involves actual fights; Bellatrix revels in dueling her enemies, especially when she fights two or three at once. She has extremely quick reflexes, and she will continue fighting with any other weapon she has after losing her wand. Bellatrix is charming enough to talk the authorities out of imprisoning her after Voldemort’s first downfall, but she is so impulsive in trying to bring him back to power that she ends up in jail anyway with no hope of legal acquittal or social rehabilitation. Bellatrix savors every moment, and always likes eyes on herself, even during her trial, when it was clear that it would be a long time before she would be out of prison. She is always quick to think of something to say, especially when voicing her willingness to further Voldemort’s cause. Continue reading

Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
Fi: When Jane knows that if she stays as a mistress to Rochester he’d eventually abandon her, she doesn’t use that information to convince him to let her go, but: ‘did not give utterance to this conviction: it was enough to feel it.’ When St John tells her it’s right to urge suitable people to be missionaries, she responds with, “If they are really qualified for the task, will not their own hearts be the first to inform them of it?” She places a strong emphasis on how she feels about a decision to choose her path, such as when St John urges her to join him as a missionary, she says, “Nothing speaks or stirs in me while you talk.” She then asks for time alone to figure out what she will do about his proposal. She asks herself, ‘…can I let him… go through the wedding ceremony… and know that the spirit was quite absent?’ and answers, ‘No: such a martyrdom would be monstrous. I will never undergo it.’ When he asks her again to marry him, she responds inside, ‘…my sense, such as it was, directed me only to the fact that we did not love each other as man and wife should: and therefore it inferred we ought not to marry.’ She frequently dwells, a paragraph or more, on how she felt at a particular moment.

A Song of Ice and Fire, George R.R. Martin
Fi: Sam Tarly is a very sensitive and emotional guy, and he’s about as unassertive as they come. He lives in fear of Te-doms that have basically dominated his life. Nonetheless, he is extremely loyal to his friends and always does what he thinks is right according to his internal moral value system. He can become uncharacteristically outspoken when someone he is very attached to is in danger, and he can even find it in him to defy authority if he needs to do something for the greater good. After Jon is elected the new lord commander, Sam is somewhat appalle Continue reading
