How to tell the Difference: INTP vs INTJ

How to tell the Difference: INTJ vs INTP

Listen to them talk

Thoughts

INTJs talk about their thoughts / thought process (Te). They need to talk through or write down their thoughts to understand them fully. Notice how Sherlock constantly talks through his thoughts, and Hamlet is the king of soliloquies? 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 ENF Continue reading

Hamlet INTJ or INTP?

“I saw that you changed Hamlet from an INTP to INTJ. I’m assuming there’s a reason for that?? Also, you said a lot of people type him as an INFP? Could you elaborate on why you’re against that? Could he perhaps be an INFJ?”

F vs T

My analysis of his Meyers-Briggs type Continue reading

Just for you, I’m going to discuss each Jungian function in depth, and explain to you why Sherlock cannot possibly be an INTP…

Fi vs Fe:

Sherlock understands his own feelings a lot better than he understands anyone else’s. When he freaks out about feeling fear Continue reading

Mycroft Holmes: ESTJ

Sherlock

Mycroft Holmes ESTJ ISTJ |Sherlock MBTI

Dominant Te: Mycroft is all about order and organization. He evidently “is the British government” and has a large compendium of people to whom he delegates tasks. His plans tend to be expansive, detailed and always quickly put into action. He hates it when Sherlock’s snooping interfere with any of the long-term plans he’s put into place and comes to his apartment directly tell him to stop. He likes to be in control of everything, and that often includes taking charge of his brother’s life as well (much to Sherlock’s loathing). Mycroft dislikes his emotions and seems almost to take pride in dismissing “sentiment.” He pretends Continue reading
