A friend once asked how in the world could I have my list of favorite MARVEL characters suitable to my MBTI? How could I idolize (mostly) characters with ENTP traits? I have no exact answer for this. Probably because those ENTPs share the same views as mine. However, it does not mean I ONLY like ENTPs when it comes to fictional characters. Though Wade Wilson, Tony Stark and Rocket Raccoon are my heroes, I also adore some others with various MBTI types.Here are the chosen five of non-ENTP fellows from MARVEL Universe alongside with their MBTI and my personal opinion about them.
- Frank Castle (The Punisher) – INTJ
Frank was an ex-marine who got his entire family murdered in front of his face. More than it, he got a head-shot that,unfortunately, did not kill him. Since then, Frank turned into psychopathic badass who demanded revenge. I am not sure about his previous life when he was a loving husband and father, but The Punisher is an INTJ. Low tolerance, lack of emotion, hates inefficiency are several features of INTJ that you can see from this badass man-hunter. An INTJ is also original and pragmatic. You will see how Frank does not let emotional feelings interrupt his decision in doing his job terminating the targets. The only distractions for him are Dare Devil and NYPD. I am with Frank. You may kill the one who kill your loved ones, though. ‘Don’t get in my way, Red!‘
- Charles Xavier (Prof. X) – ENFP
I shit you not, Charles is my favorite mutant after Wade. I mean, who does not want to control Cerebro and knows what common people do not know? If he was not shot on the spine and could use both of his leg normally, I could imagine how badass would he be. Anyway, Charles is passionate, optimistic and surprisingly care about others. At the first time he might look like an ordinary bald professor who is busy with his own experiment, but look at how he cares about the young mutants? X-Mansion is a proof of his caring, optimistic and passionate personality, giving hope to the minority to have better future. Alright, talking about Charles makes me sound old. Go on.
- Peter Parker (Spider-Man) – INFP
Most kids’ wildest dream is getting bitten by radio-active spider and becoming Spidey. I was one of those moron kids. Thus, Pete-Parker was my childhood hero. As a kid, seeing a heroic older-but-not-too-older guy will make me day-dreaming of having a big brother. To every kid out there, imagine if Spider-man take you to school and all of your friends will drop their jaws. THAT WAS! MY DREAM! Dedicated, idealist, loyal, intensively struggle to make world as a better place are some traits of INFP in Spidey. At least before Venom turned him into somehow worse but better at the same time. Hey, maybe black-suit Spider-man is an ENTP.
- Peter Quill (Star Lord) – ESFP
Another Peter. I envy Star Lord for he is having fun out of every task and difficult situation he encounters. He is also an excellent team-worker while I prefer to do most of the things solo. ESFP is creative and an out of the box thinker. This is why they always find fun ways to face everything even the worst situation. In some cases, especially the part of Guardian of the Galaxy movie, ESFP is an excellent peacemaker and this makes Star Lord a great leader.
- Katherine Anne ‘Kitty’ Pryde – INFP
My mutant crush, indeed. Shared the same MBTI as Spidey, Kitty is an inter-dimensional mutant who can travel through not only concrete objects like wall but also time. Even though Kitty is not an excellent combatant, She plays important role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, though. I have described how heroic an INFP is. INFPs are usually idealist justice keeper who prefer to put douche-bags and bandits to jail rather than killing them on sight. Their kind-hearted personality suits ENTP well.
Now I am thinking of them teaming up together with Wade, Stark, and Raccoon. Though, I prefer Spidey with his symbiote suit. What’s the team name gonna be? You decide!
