#mbti Tumblr posts

  • as a younger infp i always thought that i’m very open about my feelings because i was able to express some opinions/feels very well. now a 21yo infp i realise that actually none non of those feels i ever talked about to others were very intimate. rather it was a facade to make myself believe that i know all about myself and by telling others i would be unbreakable. while in reality it’s the other way round. i’m uncomfortable telling others how i really feel; in fact i’m even scared i’m giving them too much power if i open up.

  • Is it normal to feel guilty because people don’t understand and mock how deeply, passionately and intensely you think and feel? I mean, you’re a very vehement and intense person, you do everything intensely and people get like “haha calm down” and laugh at the way you operate. People who do this must feel very insecure about themselves to scorn people who -unlike them- actually feel passion about something (We all are passionate about something and passion is not the same for everyone, of course). It’s not about you, honey, this is about them. Be passionate and intense, because not enjoying life deeply -all the “deeply” you want, like and need- is losing life.

  • Okay, i have some questions for anyone who has taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Personality test.

    1. Are you an ISTP or ENFJ? 
    2. If so, what is your outlet for expressing your emotions?
    3. How do you convey anger? (Ex. Showing no emotions on your face (i do this))
    4. How do you convey sadness? (Ex. Refer to the example on number 3)

    3 and 4 are for when you are in a public setting, but feel free to add on what you do in private too because i need lots of info. These questions are for the characters in my novel who share only small traits with me and i don’t know anyone with these personality types (I think). Please help

  • […]But the experience and integration of the Self can also happen in an introverted way, as a result of a personal creative process or a numinous archetypal experience. Is there any difference between the integration process and its effects when a basically introverted approach is taken, and the more extroverted approach of working with the idealized transference?
            There is a difference. The introverted relationship to the spirit archetype can lead to a strong sense of religious values, a healthy respect for and awareness of archetypal processes and creative drive. The energy-upgrading function of the psyche can also be we established in this manner. But the introverted experience will generally be lacking in a ready extension to life, relatedness and especially in an in-body awareness of the spirit. The idea of being “in one’s body” will have little meaning to a person whose relationship to the spirit has stemmed from primarily introverted experience. But equally, the more extroverted way of working through an idealization has its deficiencies. This path may lead to a spiritual awareness of the value of relationship, especially of its energy-upgrading capacities, but it will lack the keen sense of archetypal reality more readily gained in an introverted way.
            In fact , the two ways are complementary; both are necessary, while individually one somewhat excludes the awareness of the other. They form a pair of opposites that must be united for a stable and in-life experience of the spirit archetype. “ - Nathan Schwartz-Salant, Narcissism and Character Transformation

  • I’ve come to a realization this week: I don’t think it’s possible to assign a definitive MBTI type to Jean Valjean from Les Misérables.

    I had thought he was an INFJ. I was comfortable thinking of him as an INFJ. But then Charity of @funkymbtifiction, whose typings and insights I generally agree with, typed him as an ISTJ. That made me stop, think, go back, and reread several of his key chapters in the novel. The more I reread, the more I thought to myself that yes, he’s most likely a Sensor, not an Intuitive. His focus is almost always on there here and now, not on abstract ideas. Abstract, Intuitive language that I had previously read as being his inner voice is actually more the voice of INFP Victor Hugo as narrator.

    But is he really an ISTJ and not an ISFJ?

    I might be biased as an ISFP, but I’ve never once viewed him as a Thinker. Of course he can be pragmatic, he has to be, but all his inner struggles and decisions seem to revolve much more around moral, ethical right and wrong than around pragmatic usefulness. He contrasts in this way with the very ISTJ Javert, who lives only to pragmatically serve the law. In the novel, at least, I think he also shows signs of high Fe in his interactions with Cosette – overprotective, yes, but in a very gentle, smiling, “let’s swallow all negative emotions and pretend everything is fine so we’ll both be happy” way, rather than in the overbearing, controlling TJ-ish way that some of the adaptations portray. (I fully agree with the ISTJ typing for the BBC miniseries Valjean.) And yet when we hear his inner voice, as @funkymbtifiction argues, his moral compass seems much more like Fi than Fe. He makes decisions based on what he personally feels is right and wrong, not on what others feel is right and wrong or on what will make everyone happy – he lets a whole town fall into poverty to save one innocent man from prison, and later goes against the will of all the barricade boys by secretly freeing Javert. Yet he doesn’t come across as an ISFP: he seems like an IJ, driven by principles first, emotions second.

    This makes me think of another recent post of Charity’s, about the characters in Hamilton and how hard they are to type. She argues that because of the show’s rapid-fire pace, and because its focus is more on the way it tells the story than on deep characterization, the characters often become composites of different MBTI types. Hamilton himself feels like he should be an ENTJ (and most likely was an ENTJ in real life), but tends to be written more like an ENTP, probably because Lin-Manuel Miranda is an ENxP and projected a lot of himself into the musical’s Hamilton.

    I think we see a bit of the same thing with Jean Valjean. He seems like he should be an ISFJ, but because he’s written by an INFP author, his moral compass seems more Fi than Fe. Or, alternatively, he seems like he should be an ISTJ, but Hugo’s own Feeling preference makes him more of a Feeler. As for my original typing of him as an INFJ, maybe that’s not just me mistaking Hugo’s narrator voice for Valjean’s thoughts: maybe it’s also Hugo’s Intuition sometimes creeping into a character he generally writes as a Sensor.

    Maybe this explains some of the difficulties people have with typing other fictional characters.

    I’ve posted before about how hard it’s been for me to type Musetta from La Bohéme. I’ve never been quite sure whether she’s an ExTP or an ESFJ. She seems like she should be an ExTP: a feisty, cunning, freedom-loving maverick, who defies the rules of how women are supposed to behave and who pragmatically leaves her charming yet poor lover Marcello for the comforts rich older men provide. But I can’t help but see her as too flamboyantly emotional and too obsessed with how other people feel about her to be a Thinker. I don’t think she’s an ESFP either, because none of the Fi-users I know are skilled manipulators or attention hounds the way she is.

    Likewise with Belle from Beauty and the Beast: I’m still not sure if I agree with the INFP typing that most people assign to her, or if I think she’s more of an INFJ or even a reserved ENFJ. In the village she seems like an Fi-user, a solitary individualist who never tries to fit in. But at the Beast’s castle she seems more like an Fe-user, clashing with an Fi-user (the Beast) until he comes out of his moody shell and shows her the social graces she values.

    Or what about that character whom Belle is often compared to, Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice? It’s astounding how many vastly different types fans have assigned to her: ENTP, ENFP, ESFP, ENTJ, INTJ, ENFJ, INFJ, or INFP. She’s probably most often typed as either an ENFP or ENTP, though, and again, the debate about which is the right typing mostly comes down to the Fi vs. Fe debate. Some insist Fi, because she so often defies others’ demands and expectations and because she refuses to marry a man she dislikes for security or for her family’s approval (although the idea that she’s only willing to marry “for love” is only in the adaptations). On the other hand, as with Belle and the Beast, her initial conflict with Darcy feels very much like Fe on her part clashing with his obvious Fi: she cares very much about social graces and manners and she makes the mistake of judging others by their outward charm or lack thereof. Maybe some of these fans are oversimplifying what Fi or Fe really mean. Or maybe Elizabeth is another character who seems like she should be one type, but whose author subconsciously nudges her in another direction: maybe she’s set up to be an ENTP or an ENFJ, but INTJ Austen’s own Fi creeps through her.

    None of these characters are badly written in the slightest. None of them seem inconsistent. But they defy easy MBTI typing.

    Maybe this shows that while MBTI can be useful to help real people understand themselves and the people they know, and while it can be fun to apply to fictional characters, we shouldn’t assume that every fictional character has one true typing. If an author sets out to write a character very different from themselves, but hints of their own personality still manifest in that character, then typing is hard. Or if the author is more focused on plot than character and the character’s behavior changes to move the plot forward, then typing is hard. Even if we accept that every real person in the world is one and only one of the sixteen MBTI types, maybe the same just isn’t true for fictional characters.

  • Introvert or Extravert?

    Characteristics of the Extraverted Cognitive Type:

    • Outer world is the real world; focuses on externals
    • Gets energy through engaging with environment (may or may not be other people)
    • Becomes bored and restless when presented with too much time to themselves
    • Less wary of new experiences
    • Understands life after they’ve lived it

    Characteristics of the Introverted Cognitive Type:

    • Inner world is the real world; focuses on internal thoughts/feelings/values
    • Gets energy through time alone
    • Self-protective and more wary about new experiences
    • Inwardly directed and less aware of environment
    • Can’t live life until after they’ve understood or processed it internally

    (IMPORTANT NOTE!! Everyone has both introverted and extraverted functions in their cognitive function “stack”; therefore whichever function is the dominant determines if you are cognitively introverted or extraverted. This may or may not correlate to your outer behaviour.)
