The Mentalist

Patrick Jane ENTP | The Mentalist #MBTI #ENTP

Ne: Patrick is an unconventional detective who is not afraid to break the rules a bit if it means he can get his way. Often mistaken as a psychic for his great mentalist skills, he has admitted that it involves making use of his intuition and making guesses based on his experience with people. He tends to use an experimental approach while dealing with dilemmas, like convincing people that there has been a virus Continue reading

Mace Windu: ISTJ

Guest post by Andrew, ENTJ

Star Wars

Mace Windu ISTJ | Star Wars #MBTI #ISTJ

Introverted Sensing (Si): Mace believes that keeping to established precedents is the best thing for the Jedi Order. In his mind, nobody is exempt from the rules for who may and who may not be trained as a Jedi, not even Anakin Skywalker, allegedly the “Chosen One” who is destined to bring balance to the Force. Mace needs to have all the information before he reaches any conclusion, from the alleged return of the Sith to the identity of the mysterious Darth Sidious, and he devotes a great deal of time, energy, and resources toward gathering information. Mace is most comfortable working within the system of the Jedi Order and the Republic, and he is thus blinded to the eventual use of this system to destroy the Jedi.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Mace prefers acting with others to acting alone, and he generally feels a need to take charge when something needs to be done. He can organize people toward specific goals, but is often oblivious to how anyone will react emotionally to his decisions, as the only matters that he takes into account when assigning duties are competence and usefulness. Mace looks for empirical evidence to inform his decisions; he runs a series of tests on Anakin to gauge his aptitude for using the Force, and he encourages a confrontation between Qui-Gon and Darth Maul to ascertain whether Darth Maul is, in fact, a Sith Lord. Mace keeps his communication direct, making his point of view clear from the get-go.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): When push comes to shove, Mace will sometimes abandon the niceties of the Jedi Code and try doing things his own way. He is ready and willing to kill Palpatine after the latter is disarmed and apparently helpless. Mace generally represses his emotions, and doesn’t factor them into his decision-making process. Additionally, he doesn’t consider that others are more driven by their feelings than he is by his own; he even shuts down Obi-Wan when he brings up Anakin’s love for Padme as a stumbling block for his mission as a Jedi.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Mace has devised a new style for fighting with a lightsaber; it is all his own and based mainly on unpredictability. He can have trouble viewing the big picture (his view of the Sith menace is hazy at best), and when he gets a glimpse behind the scenes, he will take actions that are ill-judged and impulsive (he moves against Palpatine immediately upon hearing that the Supreme Chancellor is Darth Sidious).

Mr. Ollivander INTP | Harry Potter #MBTI #INTP

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Mr. Ollivander doesn’t mainly produce and sell wands for profit; he does it for the pleasure of doing it, because he likes the mental exercise. He doesn’t want to make a quick sale by rushing Harry out of his shop with just any wand, and he even seems to enjoy the process of picking the best wan Continue reading

Cyrano de Bergerac: INFP

Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond Rostand

Cyrano de Bergerac INFP | Cyrano de Bergerac #MBTI #INFP

Fi: Cyrano doesn’t adopt the morality of the people around him but instead has his own ideas of right and wrong. He is absolutely sure that the unconventional combination of his poetry and Christian’s voice is the way to go when Christian wants to pursue Roxane. When the theater crowd wants Montfleury to perform, he disagrees vehemently and has no problem making his opinion known. Cyrano is unapologetically true to self, valuing authenticity to the point of takin Continue reading

Percy Weasley: ESTJ

Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling

Percy Weasley ESTJ | Harry Potter #MBTI #ESTJ

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Percy consistently puts himself in situations where he is the boss: he supervises his younger siblings, he is a prefect and eventually Head Boy at Hogwarts, and he quickly rises to leadership positions when he starts working at the Ministry of Magic.  He places paramount value on achievement, and hates it when anyone drags him down when he’s aiming for the top.  Once Percy starts going to work, he puts in long hours, takes work home, and talks about little but his job.  Of the Weasley children, only Percy puts effort into making sure they all leave on time for the Hogwarts Express.  Percy likes order, and he goes to great pains to enforce it using his leadership positions at Hogwarts, always trying to shut down any disturbance as soon as it starts.

Jadis (The White Witch): ENTJ

Guest Post by E. J., INTJ

The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis

Jadis, The White Witch ENTJ | The Chronicles of Narnia #MBTI #ENTJ

Dominant TeJadis is, as others notice, “terribly practical.” She only focuses on what will work in the real world: ideas that cannot be implemented (and people who cannot be used) do not interest her. A very assertive woman, Jadis frequently gives direct commands and makes no attempt to soften her opinions for the ears of others. She has no moral qualms about lying, but her natural bluntness often limits her ability to deceive others. In attempting to corrupt Digory, she accidentally alerts him to the fact that he is being manipulated. She convinces the more vicious Narnian creatures to join her side through bribery. By the time she attempts to corrupt Edmund, Jadis has resorted to using magic food to essentially drug anyone she needs to control. Continue reading

Aravis: ENTJ

Aravis ENTJ | The Chronicles of Narnia #MBTI #ENTJ

Dominant Te: Aravis does not have any sentimental attachment to her place in the Calormene nobility, despite the fact that she was raised to do so. She gladly gives up her social position for the opportunity to make her own decisions about marriage. Competence matters to Aravis: much of her pride in having a noble background results from her assumption that an aristocratic ancestry can m Continue reading
