Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling
Introverted Sensing (Si): On the whole, Cedric lives a conventional life, even with the exciting things happening within it. He is diligent in his schoolwork, and he takes his girlfriend to nice cafes when he can. He is predictable enough in his day-to-day actions that both Harry and the false Mad-Eye Moody are able to guess his exact reactions to certain situations. Although Cedric competes in both the inter-house Quidditch Cup and the Triwizard Tournament, he is almost indifferent to the attention showered upon him by either competition. In fact, he is almost more concerned with making sure the competitions are conducted fairly than with securing his own victory. Cedric can sometimes be suspicious when told something he doesn’t expect, as when Harry tells him what the first task in the Triwizard Tournament will entail (this was supposed to be a secret from all the champions).
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Cedric is a perfect gentleman who is polite to everybody. He sends up a distress signal so that Viktor Krum will be rescued, even though he thinks his opponent doesn’t deserve it. Cedric plays fair, but not in a legalistic way; twice, he tries to give Harry victories in competitions that he has won according to the rules (but due to the circumstances, Harry SHOULD have won both times, in Cedric’s opinion). When Cedric plays Quidditch or competes for the Triwizard Cup, he isn’t doing so for his own glory; instead, he’s in it for Hogwarts and for Hufflepuff House.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Cedric is not one to stretch the truth. When his father brags about his Quidditch match (“You beat Harry Potter!”), Cedric responds by explaining why the match played out the way it did. Cedric solves the riddle required for the second Triwizard task by searching his mind for clues rather than using external ones (he didn’t pay attention to the mermaid painting on the wall).
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): When facing a dragon in his first Triwizard task, Cedric takes a risky approach to reach his goal. While trying to figure out what he has to do for the second task, he takes a highly unusual suggestion (taking the egg to the bath with him) when he hits a roadblock. Once he figures out the clue, he successfully anticipates everything he is expected to do as part of the task.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Captain America is known to be ‘the old man’ who likes to stick to his old traditions and tactics (as we can see when all the avengers are using the newest Stark-pad he is still using his old notebook to record things and in civil war when his teammates accuse him of being attached to his old ways). Captain also has a very good memory as when he fights Bucky, he (Bucky) says “still got the old moves, huh?” He also remembers how to operate hydra technology that existed about a hundred years ago. Captain is of course an outdated person (being asleep for 70 years) he quickly senses that something is wrong with the fake hospital he is in just by looking at the radio and the texture of the bed, showing that he is really in tune with his inner senses.

Generation War / Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter
Si: Charly compares everything in the present to the past. For instance, when she arrives at the hospital, she wants to know what the building was used for before it was a hospital. She tends to be suspicious of other people, enough so to pry at her helper’s things to discover she’s a jew. Charly would rather tentatively follow Continue reading

Persuasion, Jane Austen
Dominant Si: The past is very important to Anne. Her close friendship with Lady Russell partially stems from Lady Russell’s connection to Anne’s mother, and Anne often goes to Lady Russell for advice. Anne also continues to love Wentworth nearly a decade after she broke off their engagement. While others do not always notice Anne’s intelligence, she is very perceptive and has a good memory for detail. Continue reading
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

Pokemon, Anime Franchise
Introverted Sensing (Si): Brock has no issue whatsoever with doing the menial but necessary chores around the camp while on his journey, with no help from anyone else. His knowledge of Pokemon is encyclopedic; he knows the attacks, types, preferred diets, and many other things about a vast number of different Pokemon species. Continue reading
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
