The SF Type Who Thinks He’s an INTJ

Jannelle67 asked: I often meet people claim to be INTJs who really aren’t when you get to know them (as opposed to people who seem more like INTJs once you get to know them). Which types are most likely to be INTJ posers like this?

Really, any type could try to pose as an INTJ, and could probably convince themselves they were an INTJ if they ignored the evidence well enough. The gal who writes funkymbtifiction did this for years (and then moved on to consecutively convince herself that she was every other type as well). Continue reading

C-3PO ESFJ | Star Wars #MBTI #ESFJ

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): C-3PO is a protocol droid, programmed for politeness and manners.  He is able to make a difference mainly by persuasion, convincing Owen Lars to buy him and misdirecting Imperial troops who are searching for his masters.  C-3PO is exceedingly temperamental; he bickers constantly with R2-D2, and he freely expresses his fear in dangerous situations.  C-3PO can fit into the culture of any society in which he happens to find himself, even if he has to figure out the language and customs on the fly (Ne).

Cornelius Fudge: ESFJ

Cornelius Fudge ESFJ | Harry Potter #MBTI #ESFJ

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): As the Minister of Magic, Fudge is sensitive to public opinion above all else. He makes every decision with regard to how the magical community will view him for it, and is willing to throw everything else – facts, laws, rational predictions, sound objectives, etc. – out the window just for the sake of keeping everybody happy. He is even willing to send an innocent person (Hagrid) to prison just so the wizarding world can see him doing something, anything, to respond to a crisis. A telling illustration of Fudge’s reliance on public opinion is how he treats Harry as time goes on. When the wizarding world regards Harry as a hero, Fudge refrains from punishing him for any lawbreaking, and dotes on him in an avuncular way. However, when Harry falls into disrepute, Fudge is eager to see him punished, and to personally get involved in punishing him, even when he has done nothing wrong. Fudge wears his heart on his sleeve, and excuses Harry from punishment on one occasion with the excuse that Harry just let his emotions get the better of him. Continue reading

Fleur Delacour: ESFJ

Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling

Fleur Delacour ESFJ | Harry Potter #MBTI #ESFJ

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Fleur is primarily concerned with her social image.  When eating at Hogwarts, she is worried that she will gain weight and not fit into her dress robes.  She wants a socially acceptable date for the Yule Ball; not only does she try to get Cedric to ask her to the ball, but she is highly offended when Ron asks her out.  When she gets married, she has an enormous wedding with all her friends and family in attendance.  Fleur is very attractive, and shamelessly uses her charm and good looks to get what she wants, whether a date or just a favor.  Fleur is deeply affected by her inability to rescue her sister for the second Triwizard Task (insisting that she deserves no points), and she warms up to Harry and Ron when they rescue her sister instead.

May – Pokemon: ESFJ

Pokemon Anime Franchise

May ESFJ | Pokemon #MBTI #ESFJ

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): May’s values come mainly from the outside world.  When starting off on her journey, she does not even like Pokemon…but she decides to become a Pokemon trainer anyway, as this is the socially acceptable way for a child her age to travel the world.  She is a very girly girl, from the long periods of time she spends taking care of her appearance to her love of shopping.  May is very open with her emotions, and although she is usually positive and bubbly, she is irascible in special circumstances; she even flies into a blind rage when Team Rocket stand between her and the food she is planning to eat.  May likes to believe the best about other people; there is an instance when her malicious rival, Harley, purposely gives her bad advice for her performance in a key Pokemon contest.  May takes Harley’s advice in this situation despite the fact that Harley used dirty tactics against her previously.

xNTP Professors vs xNTJ Students

Gineasll asked: You once said that you hate your xNTP professors because they have all the opposite functions of an INTJ? Could you go into more detail on how that plays out? Are there any other types you hate as professors?

I love you! ….distantly, and without emotional investment…Hold on, let me revise that: I love you theoretically!

I have nothing against xNTPs as people. In fact, I love my xNTP friends, but yes, I hate them as teachers. I hate xSFJ teachers equally well (same functions as the xNTP).

Here’s why. Continue reading

Effie Trinket: ESFJ

The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

Effie Trinket ESFJ | The Hunger Games MBTI

Fe: Effie gets very emotionally attached to her tributes, and sobs over the ones who have died. She does everything she can to help them, though she tends to generalize people’s needs rather than figuring out exactly what they need. At the same time, she tries to customize her care to individuals, giving specific gifts to Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch in Continue reading
