What Anime Characters Are INTJ Personalities?

Anime characters that are considered as INTJ or Architects personalities have been listed below:

  • Hendrickson
  • Kei Takishima

We will be looking at the above characters in detail. However, before we do that we will take a look at what the Myer Briggs Test and INTJ personality type are!

What Is The Myer Briggs Type Indicator?

The Myer Briggs Type Indicator is a self assessment psychological tool that assesses one’s personality to determine which of the following four functions they have, either introvert or extrovert, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling and judgment or perception. 

  • Introversion/Extroversion
  • Intuition/Sensing
  • Thinking/Feeling
  • Perceiving/Judging

The test demands that individuals answer yes or no to a series of questions that seemingly measure your likes and dislikes and attitudes towards people or things. The result is that the test assigns you a unique personality type out of the 16 major types outlined by this psychological tool. Although it is not scientifically backed, it has gained much fame in today’s world and is used widely.

Now that we have an idea of the Myer Briggs test, we will take a look at the personality of INTJs so we can better understand which anime characters fall into this category!

Who Is An Architect?

An architect is another name for the INTJ personality which is introverted, intuitive, thinking and judging. Although these individuals are introspective they like routine and looking at hard facts rather than what they feel is right or true. So it is a bit difficult convincing something!

These individuals prefer to understand everything through their rational minds hence they feel that the world is one big machine they can break down to study it’s parts! They are creative too and this allows them to approach life in a unique and fun manner that is realistic at the same time.

Although they are big dreamers and believe anything that can be achieved through hard work, will power and intelligence, they also have a pessimistic side where they think humans are lazy and unimaginative! They dislike the fact that people are okay with going on with a simple and common life and do not aspire to do things in a new way or better way.

The architect is a good learner and at school they may be called bookworms or even nerds – for others, these are insults but for the architect they will proudly embrace these titles. They are convinced that they can teach themselves anything and their self esteem is boosted by the belief that they possess great mental acuity and much knowledge.

These individuals become frustrated easily! Why? Well they value rationality over everything, even emotions or the norms or traditions of a culture. If they think something does not serve a purpose they will simply sideline it. They often don’t understand the behaviours of people such as lying and will be angry. They won’t see the point in such things and will appear as rude, insensitive or even mean. However, they are just straightforward people who want to discover the world!

The Strengths & Weaknesses Of Architects!

INTJs are versatile because of their determination and desire to succeed. They are also very informed because of their knowledge and are hence able to make better decisions. Furthermore, these individuals are honest and straightforward so they get to the point.

What drives them is their curiosity which instills in them a desire to learn about whatever they hear; they want to find out more and more about the world and how it works. 

These individuals are independent; they don’t need to be accepted by others hence they are bold and open about what they believe and are not afraid to be ridiculed by others.

However, these architects do have some weaknesses that often lead them to appear rude or mean. They are dismissive of emotions because they don’t really understand them or their need in rational matters. Hence the INTJ can be labeled as insensitive despite their desire for a better world for people. Furthermore, they are not able to do very well in relationships unless they put in some effort.

They also get confrontational if they see someone who says they believe in something without any evidence; this is something that the architect cannot bear hence he or she will enter combat mode so be ready!

The Anime Characters In The INTJ List.

Ray

He is quite mature for his age and is able to understand the true nature of the Grace House Field before any of his fellow students are able to! He is the typical INTJ who may seem upset or just too quiet when in reality they are immersed in deep thinking or introspection.

He does not have any time or energy for silly jokes nor does he really understand the emotional needs of others; he thinks they are unnecessary formalities that can be overlooked. 

Although he is rational, he does care about others and this evident from his long term plan of helping his friends find freedom. He is strategic when it comes to his thinking and likes to think things through.

He is extremely smart at school and gets pretty good scores. He is considered a passionate reader who is intelligent; despite his time spent in working, he is very loyal to his loved ones especially Emma Norman.

Hendrickson.

This is an interesting character from the Seven Deadly Sins manga series; he is a villain who knows how to get what he wants. He is smart and cunning and knows how to use the situation for his own benefit hence he is political in nature.

He is also very good at predicting future events; he has the ability to be intuitive and can feel if something is about to happen also he can use his thinking skills to identify patterns that allow him to predict and prepare for future events.

Although he is not the hero here, he does employ the typical traits of an INTJ to get what he wants which is of course very smart of him!

Kei Takishima 

This is another character from an anime series who is in control of himself and does not rely much on emotions or feelings to understand the world or express himself. He does not easily get stressed as he sees the logic in things and knows how they work; he is  a good winner who knows how to defeat the system or people in that case. 

The only time Kei is a bit upset or concerned is when he gets Hikari in trouble! This character has a good sense of how to work and helped his father run their business from a young age. He is also very smart and wins many awards for his intelligence. Later on, he becomes the head of his father’s company.

His relationship with Hikari is very interesting; he falls in love with her at first sight but is not very expressive. However, as time passes by, he allows her influence to affect him and he appears more happy in the series rather than his usual stoic appearance. 

Levi Ackerman.

Levi is from the manga series Attack On Titans and is well known because of his combat abilities on the battlefield. He is very clear and precise in the orders he gives and knows what to do when.
