Dr. Owen Harper: ISTP


Owen Harper ISTP | Torchwood #MBTI #ISTP

Dominant Introverted Thinking (Ti): Owen Harper is analytical and detached. He is quick to make judgements that allow him to jump into action before most people have finished sizing up a situation. Owen doesn’t hesitate to poke fun at stupid comments or illogical suggestions. He doesn’t often share his thoughts with others. When he needs to think through something, he retreats to somewhere that he can be away from his friends. Continue reading

Mickey Smith: ISFP

Doctor Who

Mickey Smith ISFP | Doctor Who #MBTI #ISFP

Dominant Introverted Feeling (Fi): Mickey has an independent streak that drives him to want to be useful. He has a strong desire to help other people and stays with Rose even as he watches her fall away from him. Even as Rose and the Doctor grow closer and Rose farther from Mickey, he doesn’t hate them or even express much anger towards them. Instead, he tags along and tries to help out. He even encourages them. Though he’s quiet about his feelings, he’s deeply sensitive and hurt when other people reject him. Mickey acts according to whatever feels right to him and determines right and wrong for himself rather than differing to other people’s opinions. Continue reading

Toshiko Sato: INTJ


Toshiko Sato INTJ | Torchwood #MBTI #INTJ

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Toshiko is a master at recognising mathematical and behavioural patterns that allow her to figure out how present events will implicate future happenings. Tosh’s plans are intricate, leaving no detail amiss, and they usually work out exactly how she expects. Furthermore, she plans years in advance (consider her goodbye video log following her death). Continue reading

Gwen Cooper: ENFP


Gwen Cooper ENFP | Torchwood #MBTI #ENFP

Extraverted Intuition (Ne): After being dosed with Retcon, Gwen is still able to recall her encounters with Torchwood because she’s able to piece together bits of information and thereby connect the dots in her memory. Gwen is able to connect seemingly random pieces of information to figure out how to solve the problems Torchwood faces. Gwen has an intuitive Continue reading

Clara Oswald: ENTP

Doctor Who

Clara Oswald ENTP | Doctor Who #MBTI #ENTP

Ne: Clara has no problem seeing potentials and ideals. She views the world and the people in it in terms of ideals, what could potentially become rather than what is right in front of her. She makes connections between less obvious dots and catches on to unvoiced connections between people. Clara is a big picture person who believes the future Continue reading

Ianto Jones: ISFJ


Ianto Jones ISFJ | Torchwood #MBTI #ISFJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing (Si): Ianto has an eye for the archaic, be it pocket watches, 1920s films or Jack’s coat. He also tends to rely on old fashioned methods for doing things, such as timing events with a pocket watch rather than a computer. He’s terrified by the thought that when he dies, Jack might eventually forget him. Ianto is able to memorise information on the spot and is able to recall it off the cuff when nobody Continue reading

Captain Jack Harkness: ESTP

Doctor Who/Torchwood

Doctor Who ESTP Captain Jack

Extraverted Sensing (Se): Captain Jack lives spontaneously in the moment. His default strategy is improvisation, and relies on awareness of the physical environment and manipulating other people’s emotions (tertiary Fe) to get what he wants. He’s always paying attention to immediate opportunities and takes advantage of the most obvious solutions rather Continue reading

Donna Noble: ESFP

Doctor Who

Dominant Se: Donna loves excitement and new experiences. She doesn’t hesitate to jump in and be a part of things, whether it’s attempting to adopt the language or slang of a culture she finds herself in and she loves to dress the part. Donna is aware of her physical environment and points them out to the Doctor (who isn’t always quite as aware of the same). She likes to sit Continue reading

Fourth Doctor: INTJ

Doctor Who

4th doctor who intj mbti

Ni: The 4th Doctor likes to predict what will happen before it does, and whenever he speaks his predictions out loud, he’s usually right, even if he can’t quite yet back himself up with logic. He can tell when people are lying to him and calls them out on it. He understands other people and planetary races intuitively and doesn’t have to ask many questions to find the answers he’s looking for. More than the other Doctors, he views Continue reading

The Master: ENTJ

Doctor Who

(The John Simm one)

The Master ENTJ | Doctor Who

Dominant Te: The Master is a task-oriented, planning villain. He decides what he wants quickly, determines the most direct way to get it and acts towards those ends. His goals aim for total control of everyone and everything, with himself in charge of it all. He likes to be in control of everything and enjoys watching the Doctor panic over losing control himself. He’s good at pin-pointing what’s inefficient and has a back-up plan for everything.  Continue reading

INTJ Humor vs xNTP Humor

*I spelled Humour the American way in the title because the majority of my readers are American.*

INTJ Humor vs ENTP Humor

Have you ever noticed how people who like Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy are more likely to enjoy Doctor Who, Sherlock, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett? This is intuitive humour at its finest.

(Psst! If you liked any of the former fandoms, you should read Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell!)

Intuitive MBTI types tend to enjoy wordplay related sarcasm, deadpan and hyperbole, especially NT types. The differences between Extraverted Intuitive (Ne) and Introverted Intuitive (Ni) humour are subtle, but I’m going to attempt to dispel those differences. Continue reading

Eighth Doctor: INFJ

Doctor Who

8th Doctor INFJ | Doctor Who MBTI

Ni: The 8th Doctor intuitively understands people on a deep level within a very short span of time, and often, his understanding is so complete that at times he sounds almost like a stalker (for instance, when he first talks to Grace Holloway). He is a man of vision and can easily recognise potential good and bad paths that people may follow in life. He’s quick to figure out creative strategies for solving problems and is good at logical Continue reading

Rose Tyler: ISFP

Doctor Who

Rose Tyler ISFP | Doctor Who MBTI #ISFP

Dominant Introverted Feeling (Fi): Rose is flirtatious and fun to be around, and takes action based on her in-the-moment feelings. She doesn’t derive any sense of morality from what other people tell her. Instead, she acts based on her own moral code and is happiest when she’s being true to herself (she’d rather go with the Doctor than stay with her mom). She is sensitive of other people and pays attention to how the Doctor is feeling because she cares about it. Rose loves to have fun, and will seek it out anywhere. She wants to be a part of things, and doesn’t allow anyone to tell her what to do. Continue reading

River Song: ENTJ

Doctor Who

River Song ENTJ | Doctor Who MBTI

Dominant Te: There is purpose behind everything that River Song does. To her, knowledge is pointless unless it can aid her in her goals. She likes to be the one in charge, and this definitely comes through in her relationship with the Doctor. She maintains a certain degree of control over him with her “spoilers,” act, and she can fly the TARDIS better than Continue reading

MTBI Reason Why the Twelfth Doctor was Shock

“Could you do a post about why a lot of people hate the new doctor (in relation to his MBTI type)? Also, I’ve never met an INTJ so which doctor is your favourite?”

I haven’t yet seen all the doctors yet, but so far, my favourites are (in respective order from best to worst) 12, 4, 8, 9, 5, 10, and 11.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that people hate the 12th Doctor, though I definitely know people that do. I think what we should be asking is why the change was so shocking.

With the last three regenerations, we went from INFP (9) to ENFP Continue reading
