Lord Palpatine INFJ | Star Wars #MBTI #INFJ

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Palpatine plans for the long haul like no one else.  He becomes emperor in a series of plots to gradually enhance his power; as the senator from Naboo, he becomes elected chancellor, then accumulates emergency powers one after the other, and finally becomes emperor, in a process that takes many years.  His schemes are generally successful, as he has not only supreme patience, but also the ability to predict the actions and reactions of all the relevant people (and he even fools Yoda and Obi-Wan, two fellow INFJs, on his true intentions until it is too late for anyone to stop him).  Palpatine reacts with caution when faced with unexpected aggression; when Queen Amidala returns to Naboo to liberate her occupied home planet, he tells Darth Maul to let his enemies act first.  As emperor, Palpatine rarely gets involved in the day-to-day business of running the Empire; he focuses on the most important things, leaving the nuts and bolts to others.

Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: ESTP

Guest post by Andrew, ENTJ

Dune Series, Frank Herbert

Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen ISTP | Dune #MBTI #ISTP

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

Miss Havisham: ISTJ

Guest post by Key Lime Pi, INFP

Great Expectations

fdf0c98ef727ef2968a901cacce0100b

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

Tyler Hoechlin: ESFP

Guest post by Occam’s Chainsaw, INTJ —http://systematicthinker.wordpress.com

Tyler Hoechlin ESFP | Actors #MBTI #ESFP

Se: The first thing you recognize about Hoechlin is how utterly physical he is—and by this, I’m not referring to how athletic he looks. I mean how conscious you are about all of his movements, even the small ones. While talking, he engages his whole body in the conversation or in what he’s saying, and there won’t be a moment where he’s just sitting/standing without doing much of anything else; he will either be stepping around, shifting his weight from one leg to another, move his head, smile, gesture with his arms, scratch, make wide movements, wiggle his eyebrows, etc all the time. His eyes are always wide and alert-looking, like he’s constantly scanning his environment for little clues, to suck up as many information as possible from there. He seems to be invested in his surroundings and aware of every small detail of it. He’s clearly an opportunist, willing to try out new things for the experience—according to him, at the age of 8-9, he was offered a role in a commercial and he thought, “why not, that would be fun”. His dominant Se plays a role in the way he acts/depicts characters; e.g. he unconsciously made Derek Hale’s character extremely physical, to the extent that it could be hard for typers who go for stereotypes/are inexperienced/beginners to tell apart Derek’s dom Te from his tert Se, because Hale’s character is also a very strong Se user. Hoechlin’s biggest passion has always been baseball. Continue reading

Commissioner Jim Gordon: ISFJ

Guest Post by E.J., INTJ

Batman Trilogy

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

Bellatrix Lestrange: ESFP

Guest post by Andrew, ENTJ

Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling

zvjpqu8

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: ISFP

Guest Post by Kerrissa

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.
