INTJ in Anime

91 posts in this topic

Well, rather recently I've noticed that there are quite a few "dark" animes where there are a lot of INTJ characters. So far I've found:

Code Geass

Requiem for the Phantom

Darker than Black

Death Note

Gankutsuou

Does anybody know of any other anime in this style? I'm growing a fondness for the genre as I feel that it's not afraid to push the envelope and thus it has pretty novel ideas while also having understandable characters. So, could anyone recommend me anything?

Guts in the Berserk series.

What about main female character in Ergo Proxy? Was a long time ago so I forgot her name, but this topic sort of reminded me of her.

And father of main male character in Neon Genesis Evangelion. Forgot his name too, has been almost 6-7 years since I watched it.

Fullmetal Alchemist. I would label the following characters as INTJ/ENTJ:

Roy Mustang, Fuhrer Bradley, and Father.

The main characters are two boys, the elder brother most likely an INTP and the younger brother an INFP. That's my guess.

Lawrence from Spice and Wolf

Chief Aramaki from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

Abe from Big Wind Up

When I remember some characters more I'll be sure to add them to the list later.

I disagree. I'd say Grifith is the INTJ in the series.

Most definitely "L" from Death note.

L is INTP.

My avatarsake, however, is as INTJ as it gets.

Itachi Uchiha from Naruto.

I disagree with everybody so far, L is an INTP

I'd say Millia Armstrong and Roy Mustang are both ENTJs. (Maybe ESTJ for Millia.) The fuhrer honestly acts like an ISTP. He really only fought to test his mettle in the end.

Hoenheim was INTP who balanced out eventually. (Esp. the manga version) Wasn't a whole lot of INTJ there, perhaps Pride and Father. There are a lot of Characters I don't remember.

Bleach - Ishida Uryuu, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, and Ise Nanao are all INTJ.

Naruto - Aburame Shino and Nagato are probably INTJs.

Death Note - Near.

Persona 4 has an animation now, so I'll say that Shirogane Naoto is INTJ.

Lelouch is pretty much this ages INTJ poster boy, his brother Shcniezel was one too I think. That Nina girl was probably INTP or an S type.

This would be easier for games!

Do you think Byakuya is INTJ?

Yeah, that`s the guy.

As for Full metal alchemist, what about major Archer? You know, the cold guy, enjoying marches and similar music, and obsessed with discipline, organization, brutal application of force and stuff alike.

Don`t know if he appears in new version of the series... the one I watched had about 50 episodes, and was around the net some 6 years ago.

Bleach: I agree with everybody you have up there and you could possibly add Nemu to that list as well.

Naruto: Agree with Shino, I don't think that Nagato would be INTJ. He is definitely INxx but I don't know about INTJ. I would add Itachi to that list. For the blanket of characters that have in that show the proportion is about right for INTJs/Rest of people

Death Note: Agree on Near, I thought he was INTJ as well.

BTW: Why did you take Madara down as your avy?? :suspicious:

Nope, L would be an INTP, he doesn't really make snap judgements, he can have trouble finishing what he started. Also he's not as good as getting the main idea down and he's caught up in detailes. I think he's either an ISTP or an INTP

No, Byakuya more of a ISTJ. He values law almost more than anything else, and he isn't really flexible with anything. I can't say he's an N

I'm quite sure Stein (and probably Medusa) from Soul Eater were INTXs at the least. I'm fairly sure Medusa was a INTJ

I cycle.

@Uriel

Byakuya is like the poster child for ISTJs in anime I think, while Kenpachi is the poster child for ESTP. ISTJs aren't usually really arrogant, but consider he was born nobility.

why S?

i think he's an N cause he can empathize the mind of Kira to a degree and act accordingly

I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned Itachi right now. I felt when I read through Naruto the first time that he was a poster boy for being an INTJ.

That's all T to him. His most prominent preferences are T and J, and no doubt he's a smart cookie.. but he's all white and black, rigid, and orderly. These are more ISTJ tell tale signs. For the record, he's my favorite character of the series.

I will concede Itachi as a possible INTJ. He is very long range in his planning, and manipulated others very well.. even after death.

Every single one of those smarmy skinny emo-haired half-grinning twerps that stands there with his hands in his pockets, while uttering something like "Ha-Ha-Ha. My fighting skill is far superior to yours, Hakaru."

I hate anime.

Yet love INTJs.

Sweet, sweet, paradox...

Madara is not INTJ and he's definitely not T he's an F. The whole Uchiha clan minus Itachi is F. One of the major themes in the manga is that the Uchiha are all caught up in their hatred and it's a cycle that repeats over and over again. Madara has wallowed on the bitterness of losing to Hashirama at the Valley of the End when deciding who was going to be the the First Hokage. The only Uchiha who has proven not to be an F in the manga is Itachi.
