Light Yagami Myers-Brigs type - MBTI, enneagram and personality type info

Light Yagami MBTI personality type cover chart

Light Yagami is a huge collectivist. He is completely lacking in 2, only caring about feeling satisfaction from achieving his own goals which may be at least somewhat vaguely related to the 9's drive for "inner peace". Light isn't a Ni dom. So my vote goes to ENTJ. Here you have an example of an INFJ villain. So If he's not INFJ, then he's an ISTP. The good Light Yagami would of been 6w5 though or that he want to serve as a police. There's not only that. People may argue that Light is motivated by a sense of wanting to control his external environment, or of wanting to dominate the world since he sees people as inferior and himself as superior. Great use of auxiliary Ni. What is his plan for the world (aside of course getting rid of "criminals" *sarcastic*). I sort of have anti social tendencies and the Death note would probably be a tool to my personal power. I'm too lazy to watch the episode to check this. But at the same time, he has lazy Ti-Fe reasonings sometimes like "you can shit on me but not on my friends". It seems as though people are discarding the fact that perfect and long-term strategizing is an Ni Dom trait more so than a Te one. It is quite bold and risks with their pragmatic visions of the future. Light is anything but a Thinker, the guy is a pure Feeler. Yeah, I do think at one point ENTJ was in the lead. He and Lelouch are two INFJ's showing a well developed Ti. I don't think he's either INxJ but there is the idea that you could be on the borderline between INTJ and INFJ, in which case you could exhibit both pretty strong Fe and Te. MBTI and Socionics are different theories/systems based on different hypotheses. Light would have ways to do that but he never really showed interest in anything but efficiently getting the job done. That's not how it actually happened though. Although I agree with the Enneagram 1 typing, Light Yagami couldn’t be an ENTJ for reasons which I previously mentioned, and which were basically the same reasons why he couldn’t be an INTJ, since these two personality types have the exact same cognitive functions but placed in a slightly different order. I do not remember him seeking tactics and using past experiences to do things, does not even strategic and manual inspirations. When they are in grip or loop with the Ne function, end up with paranoia, thinking of possibilities that can destroy the protection they are doing within the environment, by doing so, they seek connections with accurate data to protect themselves from chaos - Like Batman, Michael GTA V, Cyclops, Dexter. One great example of that is Shanks in one piece. (Anime exclusive not manga rated)we can see he is sp/sx when L shows his identity to him. On a more serious note I fail to see any Fe. " Plenty of that. Another point if that matters : I only watched a few episodes and got bored. You keep describing STJ things. That's why xNTJs are said to be blunt, they don't like sugarcoating things and they talk rationnaly. I've long thot he was an ENTJ, but after reading the comments, INTJ actually makes a lot of sense. It's extremely naive in my opinion, and lacks un-convoluted arguments to support it, but I can't deny it's a possible interpretation, mainly because of the Yostuba Arc. He sees people with his own eyes make the world bad and he works from there. Or kill that fucker that annoyed me in some way or another. A Si dom also would have never put in motion the plan that led to the Yotsuba arc. Fi concentrates on the personal values of the subject thus upholding not only individuation but also an invocation to let others express their own, equally valid values. Your inability (unwillingness. "INFJ can have strong Te too" or some other nonsense along these lines. This does not mean he uses Fe instead of Te. INTJs 1 are the most ISTJish of the INTJs. Yes, I Agree with the ENTJ typing somewhat but I really don't see any strong evidence that he is extroverted. What you described about not targeting the roots is the lack of global, long vision, it has nothing to do with Te. He's too obsessed with practical and efficient changes to the world, when he picked up the Death Note he was not in the intuitive world developing massive plans he was simply imediado and knew what I had to do. He is popular. Arguments like this one: "Light Yagami is a huge collectivist. This guy basically uses Fe in most if not all of his interactions with others, just re-watch any episode and observe his behavior around people. Couple that with Ti and you have a individual that is a good manipulator and can get everybody on their side to make the most horrible things possible (Hitler for example). Inferior Fi makes him thinks only he can do what others can't. His extroverted view on the world is not logical but ethical "criminals are bad people". He plans 10 steps ahead of everyone. But he's an Ni Subtype INFJ, which is sometimes referred to as the "revolutionary". Personally, I have no idea. Fe is ENTJs 8th shadow function, and it usually looks very bad when an ENTJ tries to use it, because they have close to zero skills at using it. Re-changed my vote to ENTJ : i give up on that guy, he's untypeableI've also seen : light INFJ, kira ENTJ, and INTJ as a result somewhere on a forum, i think it makes senseAs someone said, INTJs 1 can appear EChanged my vote to INTJ. Isabel Briggs Myers, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, proposed to see the judging-perceiving relationship as a fourth dichotomy influencing personality type.. He wanted to become a cop and had helped the police a couple of times before. I think someone said ISTJ. As for 2 wing, it'd be hard to create a character who is less of a 2 who still can be identified as human. If you can’t find any Fe in Light, than you haven’t thoroughly watched the show and observed the way he interacts with other people, or you’re too blinded by the Te stereotypes to actually see anything else. The way he planned out his life so far in advance seems pretty Ni as well. I read the walls of text below arguing for Fe-Ti and its just gross blabber. Take the moment where he manipulates the girl whose boyfriend was killed in the bus. All I said was that he was idealist and an introvert (because he grips in Se). Light Yagami is a reserved and private person, expressing his true thoughts only when alone. He sees problems and wants to fix them with non-theoretical strategies. @TheMemphis, nor is spamming INTJ votes every time INFJ votes go up, lol. I relate to him to some extent, but not entirely, idk. we can see he 2 wing with his very good social skills. It explores not tactics, whenever a plan it falls he does not know what to do in a few seconds, but then regains control and create a new plan. Another thing : at which point does he extrovert logic, i. It seems that it's you who haven't carefully read the only credible arguments, which are the INFJ ones, or maybe you're just ignoring them like most people on this page because of your inability to refute them. He's an egomaniac who uses the death note because he's addicted to the sense of power it gives him. If someone has something to oppose to what I said, go for it. It rather means firstly having an outer objective focus instead of a focus on your own subjective, often rich, inner world. The way that people like him, the way that girls like him and the way this seems so natural to him and the way he takes it for granted, it fills me with rage. That's a dumb and weak reasoning, if you can even call that reasoning. So yeah, the wrong thing here to fix is INFJ spamming. But flip it around to thought manipulation, and it’s a whole other matter. Definitely extroverted, don't you guys remember all those scenes where he is energized by the ones around him and doesn't at all withdraw into his own head. )INTJs are actually probably less comfortable pm average taking risks than ISTJs due to less introspective neuroticism, and the godly power plus Light's sense of justice spawned godly ambitions. He also hand-picked Mikami as the closest in mindset to himself, and it would make sense for both to be ISTJ. Light's plan is too cold-hearted and methodical to be an INFJ. She was honest and kind. Obvious yet visionary. He does have Fi and he is not a complete monster. Just pay attention at how he processes everything. I guess he would question himself more if he used them, which he never did. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't understand functions (or at least their expression in real world) enough. All this that you describe can be explained by the "observant" nature of sensers. Success = less criminals, less crime which was verifiable. Let me clearly state them for you, because you seem to be oblivious to them, or maybe you're doing it on purpose, here you go:. 1 is common in ISTJs. Every other function is basically irrelevant when it comes to typing a character as INFJ. Auxiliary Te like from INTJ may not care so much about their image compare to ISTJ, but that is more because of dominant Si. Who are these fools voting INFJ for Light. because sx instinct his also the more passionate on conflictal than other subtypeWhat the hell does seeing himself like a punisher have to do with sx instinct (which I thought was defined by intimate, personal, 1-on-1 connections). Te/Ni or Ni/Te (xNTJ) is certain. He's most possibly an xNTJ. Notice that I'm extra nice today so I won't bother explaining why I think arguing for Ti is irrelevant if you're not going to type him as xxTP, I'll just assume INFJs can use Ti for the sake of argument. @scotty : yeah I saw you defended ISTJ very well, but compare to Dexter and you'll see that Light has more social confidence than him. I know this was long, but I really hope it clarified some confusion. The more I see this page explode the more I think about him and also that ISTJ 1w9 is the best way to type him. I don't understand INFJ votes at all, are they spams. As szero and myself have pointed out, he doesn't look at the "big picture" of society at all and instead focuses on killing common criminals one-by-one. He is mainly just disgusted with the world as it is, and his ambitious nature makes him want to be the hero. An ISTJ 1w9 would also be more likely to develop a "God complex" than other enneatypes, giving off the superficial impression of Ni. No doubt INTJ: 6w5 SP/SO. Light seems to be a very unhealthy INFJ who’s stuck in his Fi shadow function as I previously explained. Idk, he pisses me off. Light is pure logic on the inside, he doens't have that. 2-You keep on ignoring any argument for Fe and Ti because of you inability to refute them and your dogmatism, even though they're stronger and more reasonable than the Te ones. So maybe it would be best to look to the results of obvious environmental stuff as indicators of what defines his personality. You can't shit on an ENTJ. He doesn't have any Fi. If people want to vote ENTJ, they should do it. He was later given the equivalent of a nuke. Light is just a selfish and power-hungry individual, nothing else. Which is why I believe many don't go right away and do it. His suit is also a strong indicator of dominant Te. Do me a favor and check out Socionics. I do however once again see no point in trying to find a Fe or Ti where there isn't one. The reason he thinks so much is because of his F preference wanting to stay true to his own ideals so much and thus relying on the shadow aspects of his personality. His noble end justified his ugly means in his opinion, and the power of the Death Note further blinded him and led him down an abyss which he couldn’t leave because he had already fallen too deep into it. I believe an actual ISTJ wouldn't be as crazy and would have played his cards much safer. As someone pointed out below, each quadra (in socionics) has different values, and Light is not in the gamma quadra. Animeonly plebs begone, I am discussing the manga character. If I had had the Deathnote, I would have used it for power, killing (subtly, I'd never get caught) all the people that I consider as rivals (like Patrick Bateman did for the other guy, I don't remember his name). I believe ToStand has made Light's type quite clear in many ways. So it's like a game to Light at the moment. Light is Fe, end of the question. 2-“I think arguing for Ti is irrelevant if you're not going to type him as xxTP. Someone give me an example where it is clear that Light is a Ti user. I can see where it's coming from, this robotic mind can also be seen as Si, but for the reasons I gave below, I can't see him as an Fi user. And yes @gayintp, my argument wasn't "gross blabber". There is nothing particularly abstract about choosing to remove these people from the world once he happens to have a death notebook enter his life. I mean, look at how he trapped Ray Penbar, or the many ways he hid the Death Note. 2's are warm and get happy from the direct emotional energy given off by people around them. I don't have any more time to waste with your pitiful tactics. Being in the spotlight is not something Light particularly desires. Light did not even choose him because they're alike. He is clearly an ENTJ, yet there are those moments when he may be an INFJ (the very first episode, the Yotsuba arc). @scotty so you would agree with light being a 1. And as someone pointed out, Ni+Ti can come off as T. And you people act like it's all his innate personality that gives him this "complex", when it's almost completely environmental. The point here is to look at Mikami, they are basically the sames. The way Light manages to extravert Feeling even in his unhealthy mind suggests F. Sure he was nicer without it but his goals were still the same. So basically zero 2 and a little 9. Mello = INFP@Manecleis, even if you think that the shadow function argument is irrelevant, it’s not the only argument for him being an INFJ. When L first introduce face to face Light, pretends to be calm. That is, unless you accept that personality is dynamic and people change their type all the time. MBTI's INFJ is Socionics' INFp because the cognitive functions are the exact same for both. Welcome to MBTIBase - PersonalityBase, here you can learn about Light Yagami MBTI type.. 5-“Arguments like this one: "Light Yagami is a huge collectivist. Compare to an INTJ they will not be able to respond fast enough if they didn't foreseen it due to inferior Se. Manecleis, the only mind blowing thing is your ignorance. ) but he started out of a sense of fixing what is wrong with the world sine criminals who polluted society disgusted him in his own words. INTJs are interested in ideas and theories when observing the world.. So I ended 5w6. His preference for detachment from people not only makes him an introvert but also rules out a 2 wing. I really don’t know what to say. Did French subtitles change the plot. (Also, I really don't see much Inf Se, except maybe in his megalomania and seperation of reality; but then again, this seperation is rather a seperation/ inability to empathize with individuals and to have more nuanced moral standards; choosing objective, clear and simple rules to make conclusions about more complex human behavior. How does this sound ENTJ over INTJ. My vote for INTJ is certain. Didn't ENTJ lead for a bit before the INFJ spam/INTJ counter-spam. Of who is really worth of proclaiming justice and of course being L successor. What's his vision. I came across these concepts before but i never found more than very basic descriptions that dont explain what you seem to be referring to. However, the Light that was shown when he lost his memory seemed rather INFJ, but the Light in Death Note is undoubtedly someone who wants to control the world, to judge the beings he sees as inferior and search logic challenges with all that interpretation of arrogance. I think he's ISTJ 1w9. I think 6's also have the capability of getting obsessed with cleaning the world of dangerous elements. Others are 3w4 and 5w6. A thinker like Ryuk doesn't get a single shit of how Light's mind works. He lets the facts speak for themselves which is a much more Si approach. Good luck trying. Even Ryuk at the middle of the scene was like "how the fuck did he do that. He has passion for what he is doing for "cleaning up" society, but that would be related to so and sp, not sx. This personality type is highly individualistic and Champions strive toward creating their own methods, looks, actions, habits, and ideas!. Also just because you say he's very abstract doesn't make it so. His ability to think on his feet when he is in clutches is thanks to his tertiary Se. It just goes to show how people depend on stereotypes of the functions rather than really understanding how each one of them manifests itself relative to its position in the functional stack. Why haven't you attacked the Fe and Ti arguments instead. Arguing for tertiary or inferior functions is never irrelevant. Could be ENTJ, ESTJ, ISTJ. After Near and Mello. The guy has values, twisted but still. the last part should read "proven or self-evident methods". the grasp is usually negative and harmful, you can see this with entj's using fe to divide and conquer people comparable to how light does this with his killings as kiradefinitely entj, his fe isn't point of least resistance it's devilish meaning it strikes him at the weirdest times and can have an uncanny grasp at the functionFor an INTJ example look at Near. Before Light found the Deathnote he was an Overachieving student who attended supplemental classes. The latter description is almost the exact definition of collectivism, and if you could correlate this moral view with any cognitive function, it would be Fe, since high Fe users mostly consider the impact of any decision on the greater good of people rather than their own personal feelings or any individual’s. @ephemeris "His view on the world comes from Fi, as it's about black & white morality ". Usually they are systematic, traditional and more tactical than strategic that; They do not see and do not create big ideas and plans for the future, just use experiences for now and do what must be done. ISTJ's can have moments like that when they are in trouble with their lower function, however, it should be guided by Him, that is not the case it because I do not see him wearing an exaggeration of view of past details to guide your way, he You throw in the unpredictable world and try to control situations of future events and deducing paths he must follow and be exploited by him. To me bob's comment seems to be more of an argument for ISTJ. Soon I continue to ENTJ. The Fe garbage just doesn't cut it though. Scotty does have good arguments but Light still isn't working in a routinely and dutiful manner. Because Confirmation bias. His focus isn't making the world better for other people. ” You think that the INFJ possibility lacks strong arguments, while I think that the XNTJ possibility is what’s lacking in them. Clearly an ENTJ. Another reason I decided 358 is because he never really cares about romance, all he cares is jumping from project to project, outmaneuvering and get rid of anyone getting his way. An INFJ with such shortsightness. His first instintinct is not collecting more information or carefully dealing with the net of information he already has (Ni/Si) but fastly evaluating situations on the matter of facts (when he finds the notebook, his first reaction is 'what a bullshit' because his Te tells him that this doesn't fit with the objective standards he knew; therefore, he decided to ignore it. But it's not to see them happy and get inherent personal enjoyment from helping people out. Anyways, how do dictatorships usually come about. Was he stupid. He ruthlessly sentences to death people who do not fit his moral code without any consideration whatsoever to their circumstances. My sister told me to watch it because she said I resemble Light a lot, but after watching a few episodes that guy got on my nerves. ENTJ for sure. This is not the only example, but think of it one second : does this guy really strike you as an E anyway. strategy Kira is far from the world because he sees people as inferior beings and are not worthy of your attention, so that only L managed to arouse his interest. It is not easy to distinguish between the two. But in the end Light only cares about creating world where the world accept his definition of justice and being God of the new world. Pamdom, you are correct that INTJ spamming is not good but it is just a response to the large amount of INFJ spam votes. Wake-up people. @scotty : I said he looks like he likes people, but not really. All he does is of utmost trust with your mind, with your intuition to predict future events with bases in these events as soon Ni-Se. 3-You only focus on talking about how wrong and "magical" the Fi shadow argument is. light= INTJ+ 1w2 =god complexI love how the guy who just voted INFJ right now doesn't even know what to comment after what I wrote. Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding Light Yagami Myers-Briggs and personality type!. As an ENTJ, I want to rally other people to my cause. Light is absolutely not an ISTJ. I think it was Scotty who said that Light was an introvert who was magically granted many friends and popularity. Always subtle, always. If he were INFJ he would be much more reluctant about sentencing and would seek to understand criminals. Don't get me wrong, I understand that Fe users are good at emotional manipulation but so can many other types. Just about the abstract thinking thing; Light is 100% speculative in his reasonings. The guy is ENTJ. Him killing criminals doesn’t mean that he’s an ignorant wannabe world dominator or controller; it means that he has strong unhealthy collectivist values which are related to social and moral issues, and which he seeks to exercise. Look at Dexter. I think he's an INTJ and 3w4, he seems like to type 1 because he's very idealistic, but i think is because 4wing. These are indispensable tools in typing people. Light INFJ is such a cute and naive point of view. Every person’s preference can be found on a spectrum, so just choose the letter you identify with most.. Like the Fi in INFJ its the Ne in INFJ. The N is pretty clear too, because only an intuitive genius who got a hold of a weapon that can kill any person in the world would go for small-time criminals instead of corrupt politicians, businessmen, etc. What about Light’s morality. Si can compare current situations with past experiences, but in a very matter-of-fact way, and I think we'll both agree that nothing could have prepared Light to the events of the manga/anime. Too hard-working to be INTJ. In the beginning, it seemed very moralistic as a type 1, but with time it proved very competitive against L, seemed more an attitude of a type 3 more than one type 1. after that he literally explose. What is the best option for the MBTI type of Light Yagami? What about enneagram and other personality types?. INTJs are not impatient. They just love him because the story says so, and then he uses them to further his agenda. His social skills, popularity on school, and other facts that aims to an extrovert, can be explained by his enneatype 1w2 social, but he stills being an introvert. he is guided by Ni symbol off justice and merciless god he want to be. That's the "silent" Fi harmony, it's like you're communicating without talking. I don't have any strong arguments against it. Manecleis, the only one who's using pitiful tactics is you. Light is an INFJ. Remember that Ni is capable of rationalizing pretty much everything. Dexter is awkward while Light plays that social game very well. Well, they’re INTPs’ first 4 functions (Ti + Ne + Si + Fe), and I can’t see how any of them could possibly explain Light’s unhealthy behavior, and even if an argument was made for any of them, I don’t think that it will be as strong as the Fi critical parent one, because that’s the only function placement I could find which perfectly explained Light’s extreme views. However, he very much keeps to himself and is not focused on anything except his own selfish things. I think this is dominant Ni, he was too caught up in his head to even realize that he could have convinced him to come on his side. He is a detailed planner, preferring not to take any unnecessary risks. He wants to save people because of his 1 and 6 traits. By the way, where did I say they aren't correlated. He also handpicked Mikami (considered by most to be ISTJ) for sharing the same attitude as himself. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Light Yagami likely is!. Oh yeah then he walks in the yard and the girls are like "oh he's so pretty" and him on the other hand didn't do anything to get these favors. The way he treated that poor girl is just too much for me. He is eventually chosen by his peers (task force) to lead for his talents or because no one else can. Secondly, emotional manipulation doesn’t equal F, it equals strong Fe, wither it’s dominant, auxiliary or tertiary, and it gets stronger if it’s coupled with Ni. So there is no confirmation bias, just some logical, and accurate evaluation of what is wrong here. @Raw: Very Interesting. BUT I agree from personal experience that INFJs sometimes can be mistaken for ENTJs and vice-versa. The rest is either derived from that, or over-analyzing. The arguments for it just fit so perfectly that I can’t see how anyone could consider any other possibility for his personality type other than INFJ. xnjs so in general can sway people and the huge diferent between you and light ishat you are so sx 8w7 6w7 3w4 and light is so sp 1w2 7w8 3w4. Aahhhhhh if only I had that book :)))@ToStand: (Heh) You Probably got angry because your sister compared you to such a maniac. yeah this scene was so weird"Which I thought was defined by intimate, personal, 1-on-1 connections. Popular and charismatic = E, not I, so ENTJ>INTJAny type can be shitty to their family. But I see him as someone too calm and discrete to be an extrovert. Yup, it's as cute as your arguments for XNTJ. He doesn't care about people as individuals, which is why he appears more reserved, but he's way too charismatic to be an IxTJ. Finally, I don't need bringing ENTJ arguments to the table, it has already been done quite well and I'm no parrot. I should watch the series again but I don't have enough time :/. Death Note showed the height of INxx's personalities. So many INFJ and ENTJ votes. The function '' Si '' what I have learned, has the data storage ability observed, thus using these data for the present. On the other hand, when EXTJs are in the grip of their inferior Fi function, they usually become ineffective, depressive and generally feel vulnerable and incompetent, since being in the grip of their inferior function means losing touch with their dominant role (Te). In this site you can find out which of the 16 types this character 'Light Yagami' belongs to!. Where Light wants to entertain Ryuk about the human world and question about the shinigami if there is such thing as Heaven or Hell. What’s “moronic” for me is the Te arguments that are repeating themselves non-stop, and which rely on nothing more than stereotypes. At some point he saved his sister from being killed by his brother. ) to read is as despair-inducing as you wanting to talk Socionics with me. As for Ti, I think that the best argument for it was already given by @superpws, who explained how Light skeptically studied the death note (Ti) before applying it to the real world to test the results (Se), and finally understanding how it works through trial and error, and how that’s the opposite of the Te approach. Not saying that there aren't 1w2 INTJs that are capable of having the kind of complex Light has but there are a lot of other types too. None of that wandering in their dreams/heads in the clouds deal. Being an extrovert regarding MBTI doesn't mean being social, having many friends, liking social interaction/ stimulation etc. I feel Ni would find the pressure points in society and hit them efficiently while he would rather focus on what has revealed itself to be "rotten". The way he manipulated her, and made fun of her and on top of that, send her to commit suicide is just pure evil I can't imagine in any sane mind. I see someone who makes easily verifiable observations like that many people in the world do bad things, and only sees trusted methods (either becoming a cop or their elimination) as suitable of dealing with them. Ni is a lot slower and deeper, not being as content with the instinct itself but digging further. But I'm not 100% sure either, ENTJ's also act this way. That's why ESTPs are the archetype of the salesman, they're funny and they sell you everything, they don't give a shit. Why would he go about killing petty criminals when he had something as powerful as the Death Note which could be used in much more efficient ways if his motivation was something else. The traits related to the influence of the Fi critical parent perfectly apply to Light, since he’s not just killing criminals, but also innocent people who question his motivations or moral judgments. But the world domination-focused internet edgelords are so into their fantasy that they need to incorporate it into these personality systems. Yeah for example (I'm watching some parts on youtube quickly at the moment I write this), the guy knows everything. It’s simply because he is an INFJ. This is a Frank Underwood (ENTJ) and Doug Stamper (ISTJ) type of collaboration, in short. His methods are highly inefficients. But I will say that Fe does NOT have to empathize with every little person or even care for their own family. Just as Fi users are more authentic because their emotions are not driven by Ti logic of social harmony (vs shallow Fe). @Jamz that still doesn't show Ni over Si. For example Frank Underwood is very good a emotional manipulation and blackmail and the general consensus for him is ENTJ. Changed my vote to ENTJ 1w2 (and not 1w9, he's too social and subjective to be w9) sp/so (though he could be so/sp). Remember cognitive Functions are not skills. Why do you think that many of history’s villains were INFJs. But I wouldn't see an ENTJ or INTJ insane that way. I humbly suggest that you check them out. Compare him with Dexter Morgan (who is also usually typed as sp/so), but Dexter clearly has way more of that with how he gets personally involved with making the murderers suffer and "relive" what they did. And also he was quite ruthless, whereas INTJs show great love to their siblings and family members, example-Lelouch from code geass. ENTJ tritype 358. Do you even know any INTJ 1w2s. Socionics only goes deeper in telling you how you use all of the 8 functions instead of just focusing on your first 4 as MBTI does. His black and white morality comes from having Fi as the inferior function (Te in the dominant spot). The show got on my nerves I don't even remember why, but Light's personality maybe, or something else, idk, I only watched like 3 episodes and then stopped. 1-“I don't believe in some of the most important Socionics hypotheses so it won't get you anywhere. I personally think that viewing Light Yagami in that light means that you understand almost nothing about him or his character. So he takes the Death Note is not simply writing the name and analyzing several good tactics to use, it is with the mind in the future in an idealized world and dominated by it. But then Light stated he could see himself as Kira. In fact, he’s like the best version of an unhealthy collectivist you could find in Anime. He thrives more on crushing his opponents mercilessly than on realizing his so-called ideals.

. that guy is so a little bitch@hairspray queen I did thought 1w9 but L stated something along that Kira is someone that is very childish and will not backed down so easily. @scotty has the only sane argument in this comment section and even that uses some unnecessary stereotypes. Light is INFJ, and you people are nothing but a bunch of entitled idiots who can't accept evidence that's contrary to their preconceived beliefs, lol. He doens't seem to hold strong values or whatever. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. Fi is like the fuel of Te. XSTPs are very efficient at getting immediate results, and a good example of another fictional INFJ strategist is Johan Liebert from Monster, who organizes a very successful money laundering business at the age of 15 (although I think that his enneagram type is different than Light’s and that he’s rather stuck in the Ni/Ti loop instead of any shadow function). Clearly if you think that is evidence against Si, you don't know Si doms at all. Who says that Light is INFJ it probably is xNFJ's sociopaths who are identifying with the Light attitudes. He thrives more on crushing his opponents mercilessly than on realizing his so-called ideals. He is basically like scar except less reflective. ENTJs can actually be quite impatient, as can ENFJs. He spends a lot of time alone and is extremely private. Black and White isn't Fi at all, you cannot be farther from the truth. You must examine how ENTJ and INTJ compare to determine which fits Light best. They can't fake interest that well, or you see that it's fake. Here you can explore of famous people and fictional characters.. Of course INFJs can use Ti, isn’t it their tertiary function. So, as you see him as an introvert who is wandering in their dreams and ideal world of planning and is a long time in the inner world creating thousand.

. All he wanted was his ideal to come true and forgot about her as a human being and the fact that she was a good person. Wowwwwwwwwww, I should give you guys a cookie for going in circles and I can kind of see why you type light yagami a certain. Either through fascism or communism, and what is the basis for the latter two systems. For the hundredth time, Fi shadow is only an attempt at explaining his unhealthiness. I don't think this is possible for an xNTJ. INTJs could be similar in this point too, but Light takes little time speculating and is not very hesitant to act upon his ideas, so maybe ENTJ fits better. So there you go. Best example ISTJ that stands out in fiction, in my view, is Cyclops, Dexter and Batman (although it has many INTJ and ISTP moments, but, I believe it was for a while one ISTJ). Also, you seem to be ignoring the tons of previously laid arguments for Fe and Ti which are almost irrefutable. There is no such thing as "Fi-shadow-function-critical-parent" in the INFJ cognitive process (Ni-Fe - Ti-Se). Which to me, it is something quite Te. Arguments for Light having Te as a dominant function are nothing but over generalizations that overlook his deep motivations. The worldview of them are to the outside as well, where good people are not oppressed by unjust and corrupt people. I agree that there are much S more intelligent than N, but it is not ISTJ. Here's how an ENTJ would have approached that conversation : he would have asked her if she could join his team and state her all the possible things she would earn by joining his side, she would have eventually said no and he would be pissed of and he would threaten her of death by saying he is Kira and so on. You obviously don't know what you're talking about. This is what Light is. Even in the first episodes, L described him as having immature moral standards - which, of course, can be a sign of Tert Fi; but seeing that he acts very quickly without reflecting everything back to his intentions and that he doesn't seem to think too much about his concrete vision (he rather concentrates on the way than on the goal), especially compared to how careful and responsible he treats some other things, I think his 'inner world' is underdeveloped/ -valued. The amount of INFJ votes consistently coming in is fishy. " Common sense is dead at this point. You seem focused and logical while you're actually very Fi driven. Especially in regards shadow functions for the types, how PoLR Te explains some of his behaviour and unhealthy types in general. Then give a maniac laugh and stated all he have to do was earned L trusted then kill him there. Because people are stupid and type people as 8 due to their power rather than their actual motivation (which is what enneagram is supposed to be about). he's a gut type definitely but not an 8, he's a 1Just to add additional stuff. Light Yagami is xNTJ, most likely INTJ. But all this is a weak argument. It is pure fucking logic, that's Ti. Even Near said that he did a good job. He also is attached to the idea of bringing upon justice to the rotten, which can be seen as a learned mission from his upbringing. Not gonna work, pal. He does not want to maintain or fix something, he wants to totally change the environment for what he considers to be best for him and '' others ''. Tons more so than sx. What about ENTJs’ shadow functions. If he would have a Te-Si preference i feel he wouldn't have gotten Mikami to take on his job. But he doesn't have any group values or else he would question himself. Now I'm just waiting for your repeated tactics of making fun of the Fi shadow and the Socionics argument without saying why they're wrong in order to avoid talking about the stuff you can't refute: The Fe and Ti arguments. Their F use is already weak by default, if they're unhealthy, it's gonna be worse. Also, you cannot argue for healthy XNTJ, because, first of all, we’re dealing with a very unhealthy character, and secondly, Inferior or Tertiary Fi manifest themselves in XNTJs as individualism and personal moral codes that are independent from common external values (I already gave examples of Ayn Rand and Aristotle in my previous posts), not as possible ease with killing your parent and feeling no guilt over it as some people previously implied as an example of inferior Fi. Free in-depth and practical information on the 16 personality types, including careers and relationships.. Any feeler can be mistaken for a thinker if they have developed their thinking function (This is why arguing for Ti is not “irrelevant”), and I think that the latter case is found in INFJs more than any other feeling type due to the Ni dominance. Unhealthy ENFJ 1 is also possible, but I'd lead more towards Ni in his case given the lack of morality he has. 1-You provide and have no arguments of your own for XNTJ. No he's not an extrovert. ENTJ is the correct answer. And that got on my nerves too. This site is supposed to be a DATAbank. If it was irrelevant, why would there be a stack of 4 functions instead of 2. 1w2 tend to have this kind of complex because they have 2 wing who make see themselves as the saviorAnd in doing what I described in my previous post, I still think he is ISTJ 1w9 sp/so. And he really doesn't give a shit about his criterias; as soon as someone opposes him, he kills them - RIP Lind L Taylor. He picked him because he felt he was the most capable of applying the new God's will. I think he has some similarities with the INFJ, but I don't think that he is that personality. Thirdly, the Fe arguments aren’t just about emotional manipulation; they include his general behavior and way of interacting with people which is all Fe, just go and watch any episode for proof of it, and if you still think that Light doesn’t use Fe after that, then I’m really interested in what you consider Fe behavior (I’m guessing it will be being a doormat and crying for people’s sins)3-“I'll just assume INFJs can use Ti. ENTJ because Light represses Fi not Se. I also think an INTJ would have a much more complex view on the matter. I think you are very well aware that STJs are most stereotypically into "justice", so you just stick "symbol" in front of it and think that makes it look like Ni. The very credible arguments for INFJ rely on stupid concepts such as the "Ni-Ti loop" or the "strong Fi-critical-parent INFJs possess". If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Death Note characters list.. It’s no news that XNFJs are the ultimate emotional manipulators because of the strong Ni/Fe combo. lolIf he were INFJ, he would try to talk to those "criminals" and tried to learn if they deserve to be killed or not before taking actions. But I feel like if you vote Light as INFJ you aren't changing your mind so it's not even worth arguing. Being Te-Fi doesn't mean you relate to every other Te-Fi. My vote goes to INFJ, the guy is clear Ti-Fe axis. His bullying is clear Ti coldness. ) So, probably ENTJ. Mind-blowing indeed. Behaviorally I think he's introverted but I can see a lot of possibilities for Light. I'm doing it because coming at me in such a ridiculous way arouses me, actually. So that leads me to 8w7 to me. This, as someone pointed it : https://www. If he was infj with strong ti, he would just have try to make his killings look more realistic or subtle so people will not noticed it and he does not seem to understand people. On the other side, you’ll find the INFJs with the strong healthy collectivist values, such as Gandhi. The ethical system he wants to enforce on humanity clearly favors an impersonal definition of virtues which he decides are to be followed. As for the Yostuba Arc, you’ll also realize that its only logical explanation or clarification is that Light was his healthy and true INFJ self during it, while he’s extremely unhealthy during most of the series, and that’s precisely why people mistype him as an XNTJ, because isn’t XNTJ the ultimate villain archetype after all. It is a focused and nostalgic function that stores experiences and uses them for life. Thinking – Feeling, represents how a person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic.. 4-“Most of the Fe arguments rely on the "emotional manipulation = F" stereotype, which is obviously wrong: hello Claire Underwood, Sosuke Aizen, Amy Dunne. Why do you think that many people say that when Light Yagami lost his memory he very much resembled an INFJ. " are really cute, yet completely naive. It's extremely naive in my opinion, and lacks un-convoluted arguments to support it, but I can't deny it's a possible interpretation, mainly because of the Yostuba Arc. Neither are INFJ lol. It's not factual and concrete at all. Forget about everything I said about Fe vs Fi, the guy is probably some kind of INTJ (or ENTJ). I really think that this is the only and most logically consistent explanation of the latter confusion. This remains true for matters of morality. Here's a link to the Quadras' descriptions if you haven't heard of them:. Secondly some entjs are phobic, like kaiba from yugioh. How can we surely distinguish NI and Si apart. That's a big misunderstanding when it comes to Fe. Are you kidding me people.
