This is the second part of the MBTI personalities of famous literary characters from the first article (link first article). The psychological MBTI test sorts personalities into 16 different types. Read on to see the other 8 personalities of your favorite literary characters.
ENTJ – Edward Rochester from Jane Eyre
efficient * charismatic * confident * stubborn * arrogant * cold
A lot of readers questioned what Jane saw in Rochester. He was cold, detached and cynical. He is an absolute brute of a man who demands he will have Jane no matter what. However, Rochester also showed great determination and rational qualities. He lives in the moment and takes the world by storm. Perhaps his grand confidence is what attracted Jane, but no doubt about it, Rochester is an ENTJ.
INTJ – Hannibal Lecter from the Hannibal Lecter series
rational * curious * resolved * arrogant * critical * combative
To see an INTJ gone sour, look no further than Hannibal Lecter. This personality type characterized by being stuck in one’s fantasies and lacking emotional understanding often becomes the victim in many stories. Hannibal, though cold and calculating, is incredibly intelligent. Funnily, Clarice Starling, the protagonist of the series, also falls under the INTJ. The logic and strategical pair go against each other in mental games, the most thrilling activity for INTJ.
ENTP – Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars
smart * charismatic * energetic * hostile * harsh * unfocused
Gus loves symbolism and meaning and looks at the world through a creative lens. His endless thinking leads from one question to the other until he is totally in his own head. A very thoughtful and sincere person, Gus focuses on rationality over his own emotions. His objective assessments can be taken negatively, but this ENTP is quick to apologize if he accidentally steps on other’s feelings.
INTP – Smaug from The Hobbit
analytical * curious * objective * insensitive * impatient * cold
Yes, even great dragons have personalities. The wisdom of Smaug leads him to understand the party’s purpose for arriving at his home before they can even speak. Smaug is highly rational and can foresee events before they happen. He was curious to see what would happen to the dwarves but his logical side took over to do what he thought was best. This scaly, intelligent beast is a perfect INTP.
ENFJ – Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice
reliable * fiery * altruistic * idealistic * snobbish * emotional
Lizzie often thinks she is a great judge of character, but her judgements are based on emotion and false impressions. Though she is a very emotional person, she plays off her feelings in jokes. Lizzie also has high idealism, hoping for a happy marriage rather than simply a financially stable one like every other woman of the time. Elisabeth was one of the first powerful female protagonists in literature, a fiery ENFJ.
INFJ – Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird
creative * wise * principled * sensitive * private * idealistic
The calm voice of justice in a chaotic world, Atticus fought for his beliefs. He can predict the danger of people around him. He also knew the outcome of the trial but went to court anyways, his sense of idealism pushing him forward. However, his trust that people will tell the truth and base their opinions on facts like he does is what ultimately ruins the case for this INFJ.
ENFP – Willy Wonka from Charlie in the Chocolate Factory
curious * enthusiastic * warm * messy * restless * unfocused
Willy is eccentric and childish, which makes him an equal to the children he makes chocolate for. Full of optimism and new ideas, Willy does whatever he wants… which, sometimes can go poorly. He has little compassion for the bratty children when they get hurt in his factory, simply because they were brats. This famous childhood character is absolutely an ENFP.
INFP – Romeo and Juliet from Romeo and Juliet
empathetic * fiery * creative * isolated * naïve * unfocused
From one of the most famous plays by Shakespeare, these two lovers might have fallen in love because they were so much alike. Both knew what they were doing was wrong, but they let their emotions guide them despite all the warnings. Many would call these young lovers naïve for their actions, but the characters would not care because they listened to their hearts. They felt alone and isolated before finding each other, two INFPs with mutual understanding.
