1. Criminal Minds (2005)
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner appears to be a strong INTJ (but not a villain! Ha!). He is too confident to be an an INTP and because he is so good at profiling I don't think he is an ISTJ.

Actually, upon further consideration Hotch seems more like an ENTJ. I fell for a trap many fall for- assuming he was an introvert because he is so taciturn. However, he seems much more interested in the external world and what's going on around him than a true introvert would be.

2. House M.D. (2004)
House is a tricky one. I am guessing either INTP but also, quite possibly, INTJ. Keep in mind that traumatic experiences and being forced into certain situations can muddy the waters, but House acts very INTP when he is able to be himself (at home, when he isn't locked up, etc).

He probably also has an axis 2 cluster B personality disorder as well but that is neither here nor there.

The J-ness he throws out so often (why most people assume he is an INTJ) seems more to piss people off than his actual stance.

Gregory House

However, whether he is playing or not, I have to say he BEHAVES like an INTJ so I moved him to this list.

Again, he could be an INTP just acting INTJ on occasion to be an ass... hard to tell with House. Even though he likes manipulating people more than the average introvert (who couldn't care less) he does tend to want to be alone *given* the choice and seems to always be ditching social "responsibilities which an extrovert probably wouldn't do. More N than S, more T than F (crazily so) and the last one is bugging me... to confident but also too lazy at times... I give up and just stick him here for his utter Lecterish confidence.

3. Pinky and the Brain (1995)
The Brain is an INTJ. I think everyone can agree with that (and no, not all INTJs are megalomaniacs or villains but they do tend to fit that stereotype well because they are confident, introspective and relatively unemotional compared to the F types).

(Uh, and off the top of my head Pinky would be...ESFJ or...ESFP...hard to tell with that one....)

4. The Aviator (2004)
He could also, possibly, be an INTP (certainly is eccentric enough) but seems too firm and confident in his decisions, plus too driven. Of course, he is OCD so that makes it impossible to say for sure, but I am guessing
Howard Hughes (in real life as well as in the show, was an INTJ or possibly an INTP with strong OCD which would account for the J-ness we see. He is too intuitive with his pursuits to strike me as an S, and the other factors are self-explanatory).

Yes, even INTJs can have severe OCD.

5. The Big Bang Theory (2007)
I think Sheldon is an INTJ. Originally I wasn't sure because he has many traits in common with INTPs too- however he is too self-confident and final in his assessments to be an INTP in my opinion.

Sheldon Cooper

6. The Mentalist (2008)
I am betting Kimball Cho from The Mentalist is an INTJ.

There is something about the character that is too indecisive to be a true J type but maybe he is simply afraid of "witches". I have to think about this one...

Note: I decided to put Cho in the INTJ category. I wasn't sure but he is a little too confident in his behavior to really fit the INTP model.

7. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Hannibal Lecter is a very famous INTJ.

But Clarice Starling is also one...

Fictional INTJs

A list of fictional INTJs on the MBTI. Stands for Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking Judging type.

My personal type is INTP so I will continually be tweaking this, adding to this and rerouting certain characters into more appropriate categories. Please be patient (strangely enough INTJs are an easier type in general to categorize than many others).

Here is some basic info on INTJs if you are interested...

And no not all INTJs are megalogmaniac narcissists or "villains". I think they are depicted that way because INTJs tend to be more confident and secure than their INTP cousins, they are less touchy-feely and aware of others (or less concerned with those issues) than extroverts (which comprise 70% of the population) and of course, the T function also makes them seem colder amongst F types than they really are.

Thanks Anna. It's nowhere near done yet. Being a typical INTP I started it, worked on it a bit and got bored but I will add more to the list. :)
