Rey Myers-Brigs type - MBTI, enneagram and personality type info
Quiet, reflective, and idealistic. Interested in serving humanity. Well-developed value system, which they strive to live in accordance with.. Also you don't even seem to be sticking to a function. But someone with "extraverted sensing" can. Thinking she might fall to the darkside in the second film and Kylo might turn to the light. And who is to say Rey is naturally highly aware. I will say ISFP is also a large possibility. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Rey likely is!. I can definitely see extraversion in her now. These things are also strengths which drive the plot forward. She's a Te dom IMO. She does have a personality. http://personalitycafe. She doesn't make decisions based on emotion. This is getting ridiculous. They're trying to show Kylo's struggle with the light and Rey's stupidity - which could lead to the dark - in the trailers. She's not a real character. As for actual type, just go over what I've said so far as evidence for a thinker. Same thing occurred with Kylo Ren. INFPs don't have developed Te. The way I see her character, she's a determined woman who tries to help people and always seems to do the right thing and make the right choices. As an INFP, I can safely say that I see no Ne in her. As she went through adolescence, she found it was easier to hide behind her Te instead of Fi. What are her desires. Yeah, I just changed my vote from ISFP back to ISTJ. But that is just my opinion. I think we haven't seen quite enough of Rey to pinpoint an *exact* mbti type, but my opinion is that she's likely an ESTJ. The force isn't even a real physical object or thing.
. While I agree with STJ, I have no argument for E. Just because her personality aligns so well--almost too well--with the plot and less straightforward than the others, doesn't mean she doesn't have one. To me she seems to avoid risky scenarios unless the situation necessitates it. She is strong-willed, stubborn and determined to do what she has to do. Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding Rey Myers-Briggs and personality type!. Also, it takes attachment to not sell a droid for money. The way she displayed her knowledge was as if she had memorized everything she learned about piloting. What is the best option for the MBTI type of Rey? What about enneagram and other personality types?. Ok, in all seriousness, I think it's very close between ISTJ and ISFP, but ISTJ seems like a better fit. She's not creative at all. I believe she is an INFP with developed Te due to years of isolation and having to grow up on her own. That T is the only thing I'm certain on. No ISTJ would actually think their parents would come back after all those years. The only thing is that she really doesn't seem to enjoy thrilling experiences or taking risks like you claim. Like Khel said, Rey's character is essentially the plot; the plot shapes her, not the other way around. com/guess-type/729394-star-wars-force-awakens-mbti-5. The notion that she is some sort of T dominant is crazy. for me she is more ISFP over ISTJ. She keeps her feelings very private, and although she has pretty strong values, especially regarding the justness of other people's actions, such as Kylo Ren, Luke, and Finn, she typically expresses her distaste for those actions in a harsh/blunt way. Whatever MBTI type she truly is, I think she's a really amazing character. Just because a function is inferior does not mean you can't improve it. What are her quirks that make her stand out and give her depth. I've come back from my long leave of absence for just a half second to say. Also none of the comments about Rey that I have made about Rey match the time span of any of the votes or comments anyone else has made. You have made me respect her character a bit more from your post though, so thanks for that. I'm not so insecure that I can't be convinced. So, to me she just seems kind of bland. What are her flaws. I won't be able to tell you how many trees there were that I passed. Seriously Typer, look at forums where people are discussing SW7 MBTI-types. Unfortunately, "determined" and "stubborn" and "quick thinking" aren't really very distinctive personality traits in a character, esp. I think some people write off ESTJ early on due to a misunderstanding of what inferior Fi is. For young Luke, you see his Ne as bright as day. We see this in that she is a mechanic. INFP's and ENFP's often can panic. I myself originally thought of her as more of an ISTJ. But she has her own logic regarding things and is recalcitrant to authoritarian figures typically.
. The only thing unique to her is her strong connection to the force, and that is not part of her personality. And while a part of her holds onto her past, her past isn't something she likes to think about much. This leaves us with INFx. Since when is using the force attributed with Se. There is definitely a possibility of IxTJ but I feel as if she is too much of an idealist to be one. And I didn't make multiple accounts. The whole "whoever smelt it dealt it" ideology. Your argument about the PersonalityCafe conclusions makes no sense. She is not driven by logic. She usually waits for things to happen before she acts, things that break her peace. I don't see her as an Ni user at all. She doesn't even have a personality; She's just a walking female swotor jedi. It can't be as dominant as it is for INFPs. There's hardly any of that when it comes to her character. At times it does sort of work like a flaw she overcomes though, like when she warmed up to Kylo Ren and decided to help him after initially hating him and being very rude. In this site you can find out which of the 16 types this character 'Rey' belongs to!. it's like people think basic stuff (smelling, tasting) makes you a sensor and thinking/having ideas makes you an Intuitive. The only mistake she really makes is deciding to *spoilers for TLJ* leave Luke and go after Kylo Ren due to distrust, but even then she goes there to help him, and it ends up somewhat succeeding. May I add that Rey's interaction was mainly because it's necessary and so was her sudden acceptance of the force. She's always in a state of action, which again points toward TJ. She is quite obviously not an inferior Fi user. And then, once she's whisked away on an adventure with Finn, she still wants to go back to that. She's also more of a 9w8 than 6w5, because like HellOnEarth2 explained below, she really just follows the plot. Imo she's an ISTP, partly because of how mysterious her personality is. Sounds to me you are upset that not a lot of people agree with your wacky type assessments. 3 ISTJ votes in the span of 5 minutes. Both Rey and Kylo Ren seem to have an Fi sort of instability demonstrated by how Rey seemed to have a little outburst of Fi at Maz's castle. She also usually has a blunt, cold, and stubborn demeanor which is her primary mode of operating (Te/thinking). She is also very independent. a protagonist. She realizes on Se. She is a hardcore introvert. ) I think she is someone who developed Fi in her childhood when her parents were taken away from her (in that flashback). lol looks like my vote broke the tieNow that I think of it, I could see either STJ type for her when it comes to functions. I still don't think it's that major of a flaw though, because it doesn't really prevent her from achieving her desires/goals or create major conflict, and she can't really grow/change as a person by overcoming it because she already is relatively warm the other half of the time when it suits the plot. really tired of the Intuitive Bias always being at work. She seem either ISTJ or ESTJ. She's a lot like my ISTJ younger brother. What is her main goal that drives the plot forward and creates conflict. ), Ne (while she initially believes the jedi stories to be a myth, she soon begins to experiment with the force, playing with possibilities to figure out a plan), and Fi (she does not appear overly emotional, but she feels very deeply and will not compromise her values). And so I'd say she has Se and not Si. Compare her to Poe, Finn, and Rose - all perceivers. ISTJ and ISFP are much more probable than ISTP. NO way she's INFP. If you do a bit of induction you can see in movie 1, she's spent her life alone and angry because of her personality. Peace out :^)Wow. You obviously care since you're continuing this debate with arguments that use no evidence from the film. THEREFORE, SHE IS ISTP. Plenty of other types can be good at mechanics. It seems that her Ni is pretty underdeveloped but there nonetheless. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. She isn't a crazy out-of-the-box thinker. And every good person will have morals, the difference is that Rey is ruthless with her morals and will do whatever it takes to help her friends, regardless of the means, proving that as a thinker, she could have her feeling function in either position. They are extroverted, idealistic, charismatic, outspoken, highly principled and ethical, and usually know how to connect!. Or because that's just how things turned out. She rarely ever makes mistakes or gets into trouble because of her choices. Her flaw is that she's stubborn along with being too cold and rude towards people. To be fair, I don't think she's a terrible character and I like her well enough, but I can't help but feel like she's just kind of bland, or flat. I see her much more like Kylo Ren than like Finn. I also wan't to add that I am not saying you are a bad debater. ISFP 6w5 sx/sp on my opinion Well, I feel like I might have been a bit too harsh on her earlier (I was in a really bad/critical mood at the time), but I'm honestly starting to like her a lot more now that I'm actually seriously analyzing her (weird how that works). She may not realize this or think she cares, but nobody is truly happy or satisfied being that way, and she shows it with how cold and resentful she continues to be. From that scene you can say that her whole life she's known about the force, but striven to avoid the trouble (9). She's blunt, domineering, dislikes inefficiency (the scene where she's working on the Millennium Falcon and asking Finn for tool's, anyone. She's practical. Maybe ISFP with stronger Te. She prefers what's familiar to her, is hesitant to change, and shapes one of her major desires around an event far in the past that most other people would have moved on from after a while (Si/Sensing and Judging). She's not a particularly patient person, so let's rule out ITJ. More based on logic. Where the hell does her Ne show itself. She's both warm and cold in a bit of a contradictory way (Her thinker side contributes to her coldness and her 9 side to her warmness) which makes it less like overcoming a flaw and more like shifting to the other side of her personality, if that makes sense. She works beautifully with her environment. She after years and years of waiting continued to believe her family was coming for her. She's only embarking on a journey to discover it now because the peace was disturbed when it awoke. Have you ever heard of growth. Any Te Dom and auxiliary type will work. She is an Se user, using her environment to her advantage and reacting to things in the moment as they happen. She's extremely quick and energetic and quick-thinking in physical fights. And some other person probably saw "recent votes" and voted too. Typer, you're not the only one who can argue here. It can't be as dominant as it is for INFPs. I know she's his daughter and all, but they have WAY different personalities. I am going stay behind my INFP with well developed Te vote. NFPs can really get shit done when given or taking on a cause. Also, Princess Leia is an ESTJ. That is the behavior of a person with a tertiary or inferior T function. She's looking less for guidance and more for a feeling of completeness. Plain and simple. Then I will make a judgement. Lol you are the one who seems worked up. She never seeks alone time and is quick to interact with everyone. This was actually one of the reasons I voted ENFP at first. We're always caught up in our heads. She's a very day to day kind of person, and takes objectives as she goes. Stubbornness could be a flaw, but it doesn't really impact the plot so it has no relevance. She says, "You can't stay here more than one night. I think it's just as possible that she has a more inferior Fi that developed due to being alone as much as the possibility that she developed a Ti or Te after being alone for so long. vader (ISTJ) is more cautious and detail oriented than her(Si), rey shown past obsession wich is manly linked to Si but never shown any detail focus or prudence. Lol apparently everyone is an Fi Dom in the new movie. Her desires are to survive and to find her parents and to help the rebellion. We'll get to that later. Sounds to me like you're the only one who takes this really seriously. So I'd say ISTJ. Possibly even ESTP when you see her fight Snoke in the 2nd movie. " She's a loner. Typer cites her wishful thinking about her family as evidence of non-inferior Fi, saying (essentially) that no inferior Fi type would hold out for so long for something so unlikely, and would have taken the job with Han. I also see strong evidence of Ne in the segment with the Rathtars. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Star Wars characters list.. She'd be more like Luke if she were INFP. She's a very clear ST to me, either ISTP or ESTJ, and she's probably a 1w9 or a 6. I also see no evidence for Si-Dom nor for inferior Ne. Now what are her flaws. That's pretty much what my mom said when I challenged her to describe Rey's personality. Lol apparently everyone is an Fi Dom in the new movie. so she is probably ennegramm 6 non si dom. Her practical skills she had to learn to survive as a child, so I wouldn't really see her required skills as an integral part of her personality. She needs the help of others to help her achieve that completeness, to stabilize her shaky relationship with the force and to find the truth about her past, but other than that she very much prefers to be independent. No T dominant would delude themselves the way she did. An ExTJ would have given up hope on her parents and would have surely taken an offer to work on Han Solo's ship if it were to get them further in life. INFPs don't have developed Te. This is where her character is extremely lacking. So xSTJ 9w8 makes sense to me. Jung theorized that the dominant function acts alone in its preferred world: exterior for extraverts and interior for introverts.. I was thinking she was ISTJ. Also, you don't seem to be adressing the fact that she still believed her parents were coming. 15 people here agree that she is an INFP so your point is invalid. MY OPINION IS: She is an ISTJ who has developed her tertiary Fi earlier in life than most. lol, where are you guys seeing Ne. If you have you would know that ISTPs are highly logical and would not delude the way she did. I just don't see the point in writing volumes on this subject of Rey's personality. I kind of agree "her personality is the plot", but consider that's because she's a 9 and they just go with things. If I were to guess, her function stack would probably be Si > Fi = Te, and by letters she'd be ISxJ, probably ISTJ. I think she is either an ENFP or an INFP. Plus in TLJ it becomes pretty obvious Rey has desires. As for ESTJ vs. Her depth in knowledge of piloting also reminded me of Si type thinking. I know she feels introvertedly. She isn't ESTJ or INFP. I also see no signs of introversion. We're socially aware of everyone around us, but not aware of inanimate objects and the setting, the physical conditions, the environment. I may be wrong however this is starting to get a little suspicious. Inferior Fi types have morals and values too. To me, this fits Rey. Yeah, she has no Ne/Si. But just because they have positive impacts on the plot and she gets lucky with Snoke and Kylo in TLJ, doesn't mean they aren't flaws. I even originally voted ENFP and someone else convinced me of INFP so your point makes no sense. They are just more developed. She's a fictional character. I am pretty sure she is an Fi user after that little outburst at Maz Kanata's castle and her refusal to want to believe that her parents were never coming back. ), and has appears constantly determined. she never judge anyone on his efficiency (Te) but always with her own moral code (Fi)(she judge kylo ren as monster and never made a remark on his lack of competence unlike snoke (a Te dom)), she shown many Se characteristics risk taking, daring in her fighting style,love thrill, act always on her guts, quick to take action. Nothing about her is Si dominate. She does some risky shit with no fallback plans and definitely has a warrior spirit. Have you ever met an ISTP. That pushed me to believe she was at least a Te tertiary user. She's a mystery to me. So that for me rules out SFP. She could be an ISTJ with well developed Fi but I highly doubt. But INFP's have inferior 'Te'. Her plans are often wavered in favor in personal values, and her initial irrational reaction to the vision she had sounds way more like inferior Ne's fear of the abstract than anything. My vote keeps changing anyway, so maybe it's the force trying to restore balance to Rey's votes :pMA-REY SUE I am ISFP and i don't want my type anything to do with this shitty "trilogy". You do bring up some good points. Mary sue ISFP sx/sp 9w8 or 6w5 Se: she enjoy the moment when she pilot the millenium falcon, she seek action when she trained with luke (training with light saber instead of patiently seek the force), she also is very daring, she go to Snoke's base without taking any precaution (i don't imagine a Si Te user who would do that) Alright fg, I'll let you have this one (for now). That's extraverted sensing. ENFPs can also be very quiet and reserved at times. her enneagramm 6 would explain bould explain her si traits. Welcome to MBTIBase - PersonalityBase, here you can learn about Rey MBTI type.. She lives alone on Jakku because Jakku is a hostile arid rural wasteland populated almost exclusively by sleazy scavengers, not because she needs time with her own thoughts. Unlike her, they're impulsive and spontaneous and truly seem to enjoy experiences, whereas she finds more of a practical purpose in her experiences, and is focused more on the goal she's striving to achieve than the experience itself (she fights primarily when it's necessary to protect others or herself and otherwise prefers to stay out of the action, shown by her rejecting the lightsaber at first). Here you can explore of famous people and fictional characters.. An Se dom or aux user would have had a way more hands-on approach to that situation. The fact that you are mentioning that you are in grad school doesn't make you a good debater. 3 ISTJ votes in the span of 5 minutes. Because she went through traumatic experiences in her childhood and early teen years, she clung to her Te and let that overshadow her Fi. But anyway, I can't really argue against you typing her ISFP because I could honestly see that just as much as ISTJ. Inferior Fi doesn't mean lack of personal values and desires, it just means those desires and values tend to be immature, black and white, and usually intertwined with logic. 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.. This is a major problem when it comes to character writing. No way she is an ISTJ. she is probably a counterphobic 6, this will explain why she seem more T-ish. She also clearly exhibits Fi. This is a typology forum. Just because she is good at mechanics does not make her an ISP. I love Rey but I've never struggled with typing a character this much. She understands how parts of a ship works. The MBTI questionnaire sorts people into one of 16 different personality types.. Thus, she "appears" to be INFP but really it's more of her pain and woundedness of being alone for so many years that caused her to grow in Fi early. i like rey very much i think she was been very well developped in the 8. But at the same time she has so much resentment and stubbornness in her (1), you can hear it every time she talks. What is bringing back to extraversion with her is that compared to Finn, she is quicker to act, open up, manipulate people like Kylo, and she is almost always around Han and the rest while Finn hides around in the background. ISTJ was what I was saying originally as well, Alkeris. An ESTJ would mainly have Extroverted Thinking (Te), Introverted Sensing (Si), Extroverted Intuition (Ne), and Introverted Feeling (Fi). That does not signify Se at all. She's stuck in the past for a lot of the first movie, just going about her daily routine for years, waiting for her parents to come back for her. Would someone explain the extroverted argument to me because I currently do not understand how she could be extroverted at all. She's a private person even to the audience, doesn't mean she's nobody. TLJ helped to give a little more depth to her, but not much imo. I don't understand the case for intuition at all, as she's not contemplative, visionary, or abstract in the slightest but rather practical-minded, grounded, and tactile. she is stuck on the past but stay extremly idealist , always have hope her parents come back. Te and Ti are different. Pretty generic desires, but okay, they're there and help drive the plot forward. this is why she adapts so quickly to the force. Being consistently mysterious with unclear motives is a personality trait in itself. I can't tell what cognitive functions she's using at all. That didn't strike me as logical thinking at all. of intuitive) experimentation with the Force proves she has strong, well-developed Ne, and since she is an STJ, that makes her an ESTJ. You could replace Rey with pretty much any other person and the plot would be almost exactly the same. But if she were a Fi > Te type, her idealism would be natural and a clear part of her personality, but in Rey's case it's *only* related to her abandonment. INFPs, like most introverts, are quiet and reserved. They prefer not to talk about themselves.. When I compare her with Finn she seems a bit more intuitive and is a better problem solver. 6 ==> desire of guidance, fear of abandon fit perfectly to her. She has no quirks to make her more unique and relatable, and no room to grow stronger as a person due to lacking significant flaws. I might be rooting for her to win, but I'm not feeling like I can relate much to her or feel anything toward her (sympathy, anger, etc. Remember at the beginning of the movie. For you it is a little different. Greetings, shitheads. And she and Rey are very different. DISPRESPECT ACKNOWLEDGEDI hope she has a personality in the next movie. What a convincing argument darkflower. She isn't afraid to tell it how she thinks it is and get rude as heck if someone doesn't do what she thinks is logical. Her type will probably be clearer in future films but I can't see her as a Ti user. I've written 60 page philosophy papers. That is the least convincing argument yet. Where's the passivity and sentimentality. I think the biggest contributer to that is her lack of unique quirks and lack of many pivitol moments of change so far. In TLJ you see that her motive is to find her parents and learn about the Force inside of her because she's afraid of it. The plot is her personality. And here goes another Rey ISTJ spam vote. She is definitely not an extrovert. I think her focus on the bottom line and her expediency also point toward Te over Ti. And why would someone care that much. Her relationship with the force is probably the thing that gives her the most depth and interesting characterization, and her cold/sometimes rude demeanor/attitude is probably her biggest flaw. Also her quick attachment to BB-8 didn't really strike me as ISTP. Her father Luke might be INFP but not her. She's brilliant but not creative in the sense of Ne. I also know INFPs who are pretty practical. But overall, despite some bits of good characterization, I still get the impression that she's kind of bland personality-wise. That was another instance of pretty good characterization for her. I am interested in seeing the possible arguments for IxTJ. To see her parents, to understand the force, to protect the Galaxy from the dark side and convert Kylo Ren. To be fair though, I also thought that she's a bit suspicious and distrustful of others for a 9, but other than that everything lines up pretty well. You're getting paranoid and so worked up. But Rey was abandoned as a young girl and thus would have spent much of her childhood yearning for her family regardless of her type. She had a more creative outlook on solving the problem.
The new website will come out in ~10 days (hopefully before New Year), and meanwhile Im collecting money for the server,
so please excuse the excessive ads for a while. Also Happy Christmas and New Year, although I gotta be working. Thank you for supporting the development!
