Perfect Se example-George Bush. In fact, in my experience they make fun of it as something pompous, naive and meaningless. That's very unusual for INFPs. Ni+Fe+Ti = built stories with thematic themes, with every clear elements in their minds what goes where. I think ISFJ is more likely than INFP. In fact, when someone else tries to just do it straightforwardly - the Harry Potter world comes across as boring, silly and inconsistent. Ni+Fe isn't nostalgic at all. After the Cursed Child and thinking about Harry Potter more again for a while, I'm even more convinced she is an INFJ. Talking about Tolkien, I think using mythology and folk tales to create a new story is such an Ne+Si kind of thing, and he treated it very seriously, as if it's some kind of historical books he just stumbled upon and told it to the audience. Let's also not forget the emphasis on Quidditch (Se+Fe). Bach, though even he didn't really esteem creativity in and of itself). But than again, you have a thing for ignoring what people say about their own work, only as to be INFJ in your world-view. She is an INFJ. com/title/tt4016934/ ;_; ) has several wacky twists famed for making readers throw the book across the room and stopping to read. Had she said she was an ESTJ, I might find that odd and think something was amiss. Come back with something better. On the other hand, I could see an INFJ settling into this kind of pleasant, even life as a writer, doing their thing.
. Yeah, I agree it's dangerous, but I think a lot more common error is taking to literally everything they say, especially when it's often out of context. It's this idiosyncratic kind of thing that makes me think Fi+Ne+Si than Ni+Fe+Ti. Furthermore note her heavy focus on families, politics, social groups, etc. Te eyes appear serious. According to my understanding. I remember hearing she planned out all seven books pretty much from the beginning, which also seems J. It's fun and games to attempt to determine someone's type using the above concepts, but it should /NOT/ be a deciding factor. Didn't realize she identified as INFJ, though; I would not have guessed that. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. Honestly I think people are underestimating Ni a little bit. Seems obsessive Si. I'm not sure about her type, but her recent on and on editions on Harry Potter series can be compared to Lucas who is an INFP, though. ), Narnia which switches genre several times through the series, and the "what the fuck" moments that string together Game of Thrones. Welcome to MBTIBase - PersonalityBase, here you can learn about J.K. Rowling MBTI type.. and it seems this goes in his writing as wellI think it's a dangerous path not to take people at their word value when typing them, tough.

Rowling' belongs to!. ) Finally, she considers Harry Potter the best thing she'll ever write and doesn't even try to follow it up. Images like lying in your four-poster bed in the Gryffindor hall after almost everyone has gone home for Christmas, and watching the snow fall through the windows; or going to that secret city to drink that mead everyone likes so much. Tolkien (INFJ).
. Changing my vote to INFJ then. She apparently self-types as INFJ, too. Usually this struggling between making sense and universal meaning can be mistaken with idiosyncrasies Which can be called, of course, but not the same way as Fi's personal idiosyncrasy. That's a terrible argument. That's a tall claim. I think if she were an INFP, she would be identifying with these characters rather than writing a series which is fundamentally about the establishment of a new social order, both in the books world and in the sense that it's trying to teach the children these (imo rather naive and simplistic) values. Personally I haven't made up my mind what I think she might be. Keep reading to learn more about what goes into your Myers-Briggs personality type—and maybe discover what yours is.. ISFJno way she is an infj or infp. @jlee-blue: In my opinion, Ni vs. The wackiness is a dorky, style thing reminiscent of 19th century novels that have their tongue in their cheek; not elaborate, the way you would expect from an INFP. They are artists, not scientist. I don't think an INFP is likely to just "settle" that way. As already stated by Victor, typing people based off of mannerisms or facial expressions is /NOT/ accurate. And ISTJs and INFJs should have absolutely nothing in common because they have no shared functions. I don't see an ISxJ being interested in making up their own complete fantasy world either. You are free to use it. However don't claim its even remotely Jungian. Though I did have her as an INFP initially, INFJ makes sense too. Similar approach of creating the new from the old and keeping many elements of the story is seen in INFP writer such as GRRM, too (dark, grim, harsh reality of the medieval, instead of creating alternative ones out of it). Intuitives focus on a more abstract level of thinking; they are more interested in theories, patterns, and explanations. They are often more concerned with the future than the present and are often described as creative. She self typed herself as an INFJ and I'm convinced if anything she isn't an Ne inferior. Please show me any work of Jung, his students or even Keirsey which states that physical emotions and cues can help determine cognitive functions. m=1Got a source for her identifying as INFJ. On the other hand compare Rowling to the weirdness of real INFP writers like Neil Gaiman (zombie girlfriends and dream gods, anyone. , and how well she portrays warm family environments, similarly to Fe users like Sarah Waters (ISFJ), Charles Dickens (ENFJ) and even Jane Austen (INTP). I think since she's sort of ambiguously INFx and good arguments exist on both sides this is a good place to invoke the "own best fit" rule. What is the explanation. She has Ne, that should be a given, though I am not 100% confident on her being INFP. For example one of his most popular series take place in a fantasy world where "the dark lord" won and it's constantly raining ashes. She's kind of a dumb maggot, an SJW and she can insult you on Twitter. Yes it does Victor. Stephen King literally places himself as a character into The Dark Tower eventually and incorporates his car accident whereas Sarah Waters's Fingersmith (so excited for http://www. Writers also lie, twist truths etc. Yes she is a feeler and an introvert, annd the reason why it's an argument between INFJ and INFP is because you can see both the Si of an INFP, and the Fe of an INFJ. If she says she is an INFJ, she is an INFJ. Well, the book wasn't quite like that. Kiersey also identifies her as an INFJ. That said she probably is an INFP. I might add also that J. Because apparently "having a lot of ideas" makes you Ne type. Found one (it's near the bottom):. I've talked to a couple (One of my best friends is an ISTJ and my grandmother is an ISFJ) and while they are both bookish neither type has much of an active imagination, which they're quite honest about. < Anyway, that definitely does not sound very INFJ-ish, and I remember he could be somewhat rough as well, like when criticizing his friend C. Wait a better example of Te eyes is Stefan Molyneux on youtubeYou cannot see Ni Si Ti eyes because they are introverted functions thus internal. Also Ni is not big on nostalgia, so when you read an INFJ's literature, the nostalgia is more similar to the background of he story, in which the protagonist created the new world (or system). Fi+Ne+Si writers = creates something new from something old, using Fi to filter the elements that matters and holds things of uniqueness and weight for the authors. Rowling based Hermione off of herself—she too was a know-it-all in grade school. All elements need to make logical sense (Ti) and can convey universal meaning (Fe). I'd like more input of @Ventus413 @bobnickmad @impeccable. Ne is a bit difficult to gauge because if someone writes fantasy s/he will inevitably look more Ne, so if you ask that about a fantasy writer you will unwisely write off Ni in every case. INFP spamming. Today it was min. Finally neither J. Here you can explore of famous people and fictional characters.. think George Bush. Fe eyes appear friendly. tolstoytherapy. she just talks about everyday stuff, there is no bigger picture talking (Ni), no train of thought (Ne), no speculating, just everyday average stuff. That's basic but kinda cute. Rowling is no sack of potatoes ISFJ, that's for sure. Finally there is quite a lot of Se in her books. A possible point to consider is that in Harry Potter (as compared to, say, LOTR) lots of time is spent on sorting and classification, even beyond the four Houses (e. Loners and individualists, meanwhile, are always portrayed as morally uneven and in an almost overbearing fashion, like Lupin and Snape, and barely redeemed. I don't know why no one has considered ISFJ as an option. isfj clear as day. They're very nice people but not big on storytelling, although writing true stories would be another matter. INFJ > INFP, seems to show Fe in interviews, too. But INFJ sounds very reasonable to me. That's a confusing argument Apocalypse Please, so ISTJs and INFPs are basically the same thing because they have the same functions regardless of their order. She doesn't have the steady, Ni eyes of an INFJ but you can see a bit of the Ne of an INFP visually, as well as Fe in the way she communicates. ISFJ is quite an odd vote for someone who describes herself as an imaginative dreamer. I think the Ne would make them want new things, maybe even change their values, and their Fi would make it difficult for them to write books (on purpose) that they don't themselves consider to be very important. I mean, an INFJ could obsess with the symbolism of the tree or something, but obsessing with the object's impression rather than the abstract concept behind it, seems much more of a Si thing. That still seems to me like a fundamentally Intuitive thing. In comparison I would call her flying stairs and "Ministry of Magic" more like a sort of nostalgic playfulness (Ni+Fe). I remember reading that Rowling intricately mapped out everything to do with the plot for all seven books before writing them, which to me would suggest very long-range planning and thus INFJ or at least J. Who keeps voting INFP. Identifies self as an INFJ but is very evidently an INFP in my opinion. It also would explain why she said Hufflepuff was her favorite house in some ways. I will admit that I'm not very confident he is an INFJ though, and there might be something to the SJ angle as I haven't really read anything by or of Tolkien in a long time though. If she identifies herself as INFJ then what makes people think they know her personality type better than she does. Tolkien is known for the detail he gives to his imaginary world, he clearly states he doesn't like allegory or intended to write one. Also, there's an interview with Tolkien, and during the interview Tolkien keeps talking about every tree he see, lol. Rowling nor Tolkien have the kind of almost roughly bizarre ideas Waters and King have sometimes (Ne). Quiet, reflective, and idealistic. Interested in serving humanity. Well-developed value system, which they strive to live in accordance with.. Let's also remember that this was a guy who made up a fictional language JUST FOR FUN (Ti). Makes no sense to me. Perfect Te example-Charles Krauthammer who is an INTJJust out of curiosity, how do you define Ni, Si and Ti eyes. Like with people collecting pencils or stamps and stuff like that, but with trees instead of pencils. A Ni user is not going to sit down and make up some weird world to entertain their friends while waiting for the train, but if it's their job to be fantasy writers, they can do it quite well. Now, can someone explain to me why she get votes for Enneagram 6. If there's any nostalgic elements in an INFJ's writings, it would be just a tool to carry the plots or themes, but not the important aspects of the stories. If she's indeed ISFJ that'd best explain the Hermione parallel. In fact, it is often suggested that loneliness itself makes you a bad person, corrupts you (as in the case of Tom Riddle, Snape, Ginny in the second book). Ne eyes are kind of spacey yet curious looking. Half-blood vs. She seems to fit the profile of the ISxJ fantasy writer: Tolkien, Stephen King, Rowling.

Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding J.K. Rowling Myers-Briggs and personality type!. and sometimes ISTP males have a psycho look but not alwaysPersonality types and Jungian functions have no correlation with eyes, mouth, hair color or foot size. < Both ISxJ writers I'm more sure about (Stephen King, Sarah Waters) also both stick to the world as we know it. I cannot think of a single compelling reason to dispute that and say she is an INFP instead. I think historians might one day thank Stephen King for how carefully he captures everyday American life until the monsters show up, and Sarah Waters is literally a historical writer. The saving grace are very often older characters or groups with some kind of eternal truth or wise word to set you on the right path. What is the best option for the MBTI type of J.K. Rowling? What about enneagram and other personality types?. Indeed, more often that is true (however, there are some very creative ISxJs e. INFxWhat shahenshah said. It's just a theory. I'd ultimately disagree too, but it is a very good theory from a deductive point of view. Watching screens again I think there might be something Ne-ish about director Park Chan-wook (thedude was arguing he was an INFP), but it just feels so subdued, brutal and elegant at the same time which makes me reach for INTJ (Te+Se). INFP is more likely, even though she identifies herself as INFJ. Writers are often asked very concrete questions about general stuff pertaining to art, and the flashier and simpler the answers are, the more likely they are to be reproduced en masse. ISFJ ISFJ ISFJ ISFJ everywhere. So you will see Se eyes on an ISFP's face. Notice the tendency to let Si be the carrying element of their stories and then use their imagination as support rather than for example how GRRM puts fantasy in the forefront and bolsters it with facts and reality. I know its a faily popular and quite frankly very desirable way of typing which is prevalent on the online community however it offers no consistent basis of application and is rather highly subjective and personal gauge. But man, she is so bland. Se eyes are straight up noticeable. She seems like someone who is guided by objective ethics (the effects something has on others determining whether it's right or wrong) rather than someone who would be adamant about not doing something because it didn't personally feel right to her even if not doing so would have a negative impact objectively. She seems to be an INFx. just watched around 30 interviews on youtube. Kiersey also identifies her as an INFJ. I know Tolkien is usually said to be an INFP, but I don't think that is right as his stories are so heavily built on existing myths rather than being free-form imagined (Ni+Ti), and he would often be quite conservative and elitist; for example he made a HUGE ruckus about his church wanting to preach in British rather than Latin. I was very fascinated to watch some lectures on writing by Brandon Sanderson (INTJ) and how he almost *deduces* himself to the Ne-like weirdness of his books. INFJs are visionaries and idealists who ooze creative imagination and brilliant ideas.. Where's the Ni. com/2014/06/9-reasons-you-should-read-the-silkworm-galbraith-rowling. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type J.K. Rowling likely is!. Ohhhh, if the movie adaption totally gives you a Fi aura that's because. There are plenty of other examples, like science fantasy surrealist Jodorowsky (INFJ) and let's not forget J. Just go on her Twitter and see her profile picture and description. Just an impression. Imo there are certainly allegorical qualities to Tolkien's writing. Celebrity Types be damned. Identifies self as an INFJ but is very evidently an INFP in my opinion. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Writers characters list.. Notice also that her books strongly represent the values of her background as a British center-left, but in an impersonal, general, confident way rather than the thorny, confused and passionate depictions INFPs tend towards (GRRM's tragic cynicism, the purity of The Little Prince, etc. It's a nice theory, but I'd disagree, the ISFJs along with ISTJs have inferior Ne. Dreamer-Mentor like Tolkien and Myazaki. Its like a squinty look. in an introvert you will see their 2nd function which is extroverted. The MBTI questionnaire sorts people into one of 16 different personality types.. Now, these are not the strongest arguments of course, but both Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings are full of Ni+Fe-ish generalized words of wisdom compared to ISxJ writers I know and ISxJs I know in real life who would never say things like this and be able to mean them seriously. Like reading you guys :PI don't know, her self assessment as INFJ seems more of a mistyping, perhaps due to lack of deep understanding of the system. Good point, impeccable—ISxJs can be creative but since their Ne is inferior they wouldn't describe their natural state as imaginative and dreamy. Harry Potter seem made by an INFx. She could be ENFP but her Si doesn't seem inferior. Muggle born vs. Instead, almost as a game, she writes half-hearted socially concerned crime fiction now. (Although I also think Harry Potter is the best thing ever, of course. I have an ISFJ girl in my class, go on her Facebook she has the same fucken face, same fucken selfie, and has a pic of nature and trees used as her banner. Where's the Ne. INFP doesn't have a monopoly on whimsical fantasy, and it's one of the prime ethical rules of the MBTI that the individual has final say unless she is extremely misinformed. Lewis or having fights with priests in the middle of sermon about how they do things, so it's very possible you're right. Well on the one hand, face reading has absolutely nothing to do with MBTI, but on the other, you do make an excellent point. But I think for Rowling, since she's a fantasy writer, it might be easier to look for Fe vs. Notice how Rick Perry has the same Se eyes.
