Rust Cohle Myers-Brigs type - MBTI, enneagram and personality type info
He's not "using" Fi, he's showing behaviour that could be interpreted as Fi, but having values has nothing to do with F here. The mystical thing is just a dumb argument in general. Seriously why. "he's too argumentative and stubborn to be INFJ" I hope you never encounter an sx/sp, sx/so, or sp/sx INFJ because they're exactly what you say they're not. In the other hand, I have a very hard time seeing Ne and Si in Cole. Ni-doms in a loop (I didn't write this, I'm just quoting from another source). So this kind of loop, and the fact he would be showing his shadow self might make sense in this kind of context. This in turn limits clarity of the system which already is pretty nuanced. Loops are bullshit, male feelers may be uncomfortable being feelers but that doesn't make them use Ti. Jung only said that inferior function is unconscious which is a big deal yo look for. The visual patterns he goes by are difficult to classify as either Ni or Ne. I agree Ni and Ti are touted as the most desirable and intellectual functions while when we use actual jungian typology free from mess made by behavioral typology, MBTI letter codes and Keirsey we find that almost all types possess handful of intellectual figures. There are plenty of instances where a person is mistyped, sometime grossly mistyped and I myself have challenged the voters for an explanation because ofcourse they would have one and I most certainly don't mean that I am right but sometimes arguments can get ridiculous. Welcome to MBTIBase - PersonalityBase, here you can learn about Rust Cohle MBTI type.. Ni doms tend to be very "meta", in the universality, to capture the essence of things, to have foresight, etc. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of True Detective characters list..
. Can you really see an INTP behaving like he did in the undercover episode. Everyone's an INFJ though. Vote him for INFJ because Ti in tertiary position represents his strong logical rationalizing very well, or ISTP because Ni in tertiary position represents his strong intuition very well. If you want to talk about Hitler's type in depth, we can talk about it on Hitler's page. There can only be certainty when a person is indicating clear preferences for a type, rest is all conjectures and best fit. The fact that so many clueless people inhabit this site (rust cole an infj. Rust never "ruled out" possibilities. I don't know about your magic manual, nor how the INTJ in that book were typed. 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. They probably dig deeper into it than you will ever do. Don't forget the universal rule. IxTP is the best option for him, but I would say it is an INTP, simply because it quickly make abstract connections after the analysis and create a whole theory, but not entirely decisive, but comprehensive. There may be associated behaviors related to cognitive functions but they are not cause and effect. My final comment was just addressing another user below who was reiterating the common misconception that people have about INFJs somehow being harmonious, people-pleasing people even under psychological duress or trauma. There is no Si/Ne in his stack. In conclusion Cohle is INTP, yes. INFJs are fucking social people. How could he be a sensor with that. If we're not doing that then I too should going around writing comments ob how stupid people are for not agreeing with me. He's also a fictional character who kind of flips back and forth between INTP and INTJ, which is why even if functions were real and everyone was just one type, there could be a strong debate between the two. Impeccable, I think your rant about him being a possible SJ was beautiful and it is very right, though it doesn't prove that he is ESJ. For Jung it was a laboring task yet he engaged in casual typing all his life, changing his assessments again and again. Even if for my part I guess he is INTP. I have to say I don't believe much in tests anyway. "You can just see his Ni. It's not about manipulating, it's about explaining them. Most of the time, this world isn't up to their ideal vision and if their Fe isn't properly developed, they will be misanthropes with very dark insights. I mean MBTI , why precisely can't you agree with Rust Cohle is a INFJ or INTP. I changed my vote to INFJ because Rust is a very focused, single-minded individual. About the INTJ with Fi : It is you who interpret something as Fi. Quiet, reflective, and idealistic. Interested in serving humanity. Well-developed value system, which they strive to live in accordance with.. Kant and Einstein. How do you do that. He's more of an observer than a controller, finay he's too argumentative and stubborn to be INFJ. He shows LOTS of Se. INFP will become like tyrants but usually seem a little ridiculous, overwhiny and emo when they do. INFJ is a very misunderstood type and more often than not they are anti-social actually (especially men). He's also drunk, on drugs, acting impulsively. He's totally an INTP. Fe just can't be is inferior function. Ni is objective, rule out possibilities that are not in your eyes or that are judged to be ineffective in the case and is more interested in directing and find out so accepting. for Jung its just the dominant and inferior function, for V. INFJs are visionaries and idealists who ooze creative imagination and brilliant ideas.. (I mistyped myself at first so I'm not making fun of those who have a hard time figuring out their type) that doesn't mean the theory is invalid. Sorry for the rant, It might very well be useless and inspire some witty responses but I had to speak my mind. Gladly there are many here who have this understanding of jungian typology. I personally see both INTP and INTJ as possibilities, and the rest pretty ridiculous. Anyway : there's no right way of typing, only right typings :) And I'm sure you believe you use Fe but chances are you just have friends and tolerate their illogicality, that doesn't make you a feeler. You've managed to argue that he's not bad enough with Fe for it to be inferior, yet you're perfectly fine accepting his "obvious Se" as inferior. Rather, he kept looking for information that built and then confirmed his preconceptions. He doesn't seem like he has always been so closed off. this is why arguing with lower functions is dumb. Only later works worked on auxiliary and tertiary functions and even some of the functions were not theorized by Jung but his associates. Whilst Rust is more of an intuitive close to the writer, using both Ti, Se, Ne and Ni with apparently repressed Fe. MBTI isn't scientific because it isn't measurable, but it doesn't mean the theory is wrong at all. " and another one I found elsewhere : "The introverted intuitive type has the same capacity as the extroverted intuitive for smelling out the future, having the right guess or the right hunch about the not-yet-seen future possibilities of a situation. INTJ you could get away with. How can you say that when this is like one of the first quotes in the series https://www. And it's not that hard to notice that an INFP can become as inflexible as an ESTJ sometimes, or that a ESTJ will become mysteriously as cheesy as they can be tough because of their inferior functions. I'd be interested in that but atleast explain the premise a bit. Turns out its not the case. I don't see much to back up the Ne/Si claim for Rust. INFJ tend to understand INFJ better and realize who is and isn't one. Rust has logical structure of things and totally pessimistic view, Fe it is clearly inferior: there is the weak ability to display and arrogance, and also do not remember him having a collective focus. Don't see why INFJ wouldn't be argumentative and stubborn too, especially with strong Ti. Their Fi remains their primary functions. " It's funny you dismiss her way of typing when it's exactly how Ni works; it's introverted (subjective) perception, insights and impressions that often can't be clearly described to others, she says it herself, when people ask her to type someone she sometimes struggles to clearly express her perception. The thing is that Cole's personality seems to have shifted. Here you can explore of famous people and fictional characters.. You described INTPs very well. I was like, what is with all the characters being INFJs who are clearly NTs. The guy can't stop talking,he's basically constantly questioning what he sees. Don't worry, that's not about competition, and it's not personnal, no type is safe on her tumblr, only INTJs xDThat was point #1 of what Moolfreet said was a "good case". He is abe to recall details for his investigations, how is that not Si. The Ni-Ti looping INFJ on the other hand turns empathy off like a switch similar to how psychopaths do (see Hitler). I think thats fair. Franz its Dom-Aux-Ter-Inf. You can be sure someone is a intuitive without being sure of the other dichotomies. He is a rationalist. It's like a filter that takes the information and ideas that best suit it's set of narratives/theories. As far as I know he mainly just talks about how the lesser unconscious functions contaminate the conscious ones, which are always still preferred. He wasn't concerned about his health at all, it's not a Inf Se thing. Rust is a depressive, very unhealthy and detached INFJ, probably a 5w6. This all depends on how many functions are conscious. It's impossible not to see INFJ in the last scene as a standalone. g Fe is distinguishable from Fi. By the way, "Se-inf" INTJs were the 2nd most likely type to work out in their leisure time (page 259, MBTI manual). Fe is INTPs last function and it shows. My main source for typing would be Jung, hence the notion of shadow, which I find interesting because it explains the human paradox. Stop typing characters based on your stupid interactions with mistyped people, that's not how it works. INFJ: *blank, soulless expression* Who cares. I am aware of INTJ-INTP debates on other forums which get pretty hilarious at time. Putting peoples in boxes is more J than P too (it's judging. Hence the pertinence in looking for primary/tertiary loop. "He's good at reading others and questioning them in investigations". Most of the profiler characters are actually INFJs, just take a look at Rober Goren (Law and Order Criminal Intent), Frank Black (Millennium), Will Graham (Manhunter/Hannibal). So its true assessment of type can only be an insightful process not a scientific one. I'm only sure of I as a dichotomy. Something ISTPs have. Enneagram 1 is a J type (mostly corolated with TJ types), very ethicaly-driven, with strong notions of right and wrong, sometimes even a sense of mission. He is a huge Ti dominant, in this case INTP. there can be a very solid case for their type. The guy was sweating Ne. Why do you even pay attention to his theory. When consistent, and this is the case here, they are indeed well-formed and of a definite type. In episode one he brings flowers to dinner as a social custom. What happens is that many people find that some INFJ know understand something logical, it is because it is using Ti, and Ni-Fe is good to understand things. He has Ti, but he usually goes by patterns/impressions. Well thought out arguments will however stand out. MBTI is stupid in the first place, but it's fun, don't take that away. ) and having emotions doesn't mean they're "in the grip" of anything If it pleases you. If we two aren't even talking about the same thing then we rather not argue at all. Function stacks are cancerINTJ with poor Te = Sasuke from Naruto. Sometimes being very cheesy with animals (the same way as Aunt Marge in Harry Potter) or liking over-romantic stuffs while at first sight you would say they hate that. I never read Tumblr about MBTI (when I come across one, it's usually bullshit). To be clear INTPs can be mystics but there focus isn't on profound mysticism rather clarity amd consistency of thought. I think most characters are written without MBTI in mind, the writer of True Detective is most definitely using Ni, so the only way of adding intuitive leaps would be using a function close to him. And , I read last time that old philosophers INTP was often mistyped INFP because of their emotional reach who complete philosophy systems. Ni doms essentially build a worldview that gets pulled over all their ideas. Nothing in common what so ever except for the first three letters. Fi, won't be emotionnal/personnal/self-involved/etc. And I find that INFJ can be very concerned about religion also. "He invented a whole doctrine. INFJ's can be in their heads alot but INFJ's like to socialize. He's clearly not an F and clearly is a Ni dom = INTJ, don't think too much about it, he's a complex fictionnal character, not a real person. You people get worse at typing every time I come back here. He has no friends really yet he kinda grows on people. Here it's not to mix NP's excenticity with NJ's mysticism. And it's less about his daughter than an entire vision of the world anyway. I've been trying to adress this discussion rationally, but when you face people commenting "total intp" without any elaboration, or some non sense about there being no arguments (might want to scroll down the page). If you want to type with stereotypes, then INTP is also the perfect type for detectives. Being haunted, helpless and aloof does not make you melancholic in a Si way. And I don't agree with the "everyone has this traits under stress" thing, because you could say just the same with the primary functions themselves. Its confusing to people who have not read Jung and his closest associates but its as real as 16 personality types. van der Hoop, von Franz worked on auxiliary and tertiary function. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Rust Cohle likely is!. *throws temper tantrum before crying secretly into pillow*. "INTJ: I fucked up I fucked up, I’m a loser with no purpose in life wtf I am so ANGRY at myself because I am not good enough and I’m a shitty person. Yeah, you've got a strong case for that one, right. They are extroverted, idealistic, charismatic, outspoken, highly principled and ethical, and usually know how to connect!. I keep my vote unless there is a strong argument against it. All I did was provide a description of what Ni loops like and asked others to decide upon it for themselves. She should've just omitted that whole section, because it just reads as subjective gibberish. Cognitive functions isn't something to be measured but they can be observed, e. He is as INFJ as me, just because he is a bit spiritual and believe in the unconscious means he is an INFJ. Slightly off topic, but what I don't get is why *some* INTJ's feel like they are in constant competition to INTP's, to the point where they will insult their own intelligence and everyone else's too by writing stuff like "INTP may think they have a mystical air because they listen to Pink Floyd but they are really just nerds". Typism really bothers me. They are not the projection of some fantasies simply because they are supposed to be the rarest type. Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding Rust Cohle Myers-Briggs and personality type!. I can say I'm an INTJ with poorly developped Te, that wouldn't make much sense. Not using the tertiary to type can be so restrictive. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. I was making a general statement. I voted INTJ some time ago btw but I'm open to ISTP. Mind you Jung's original typology only made room for 8 types (INJ,ITP,ETJ,ESJ,ESP,ENP,ISJ and ISP). Probably INTP. How could he be a sensor with that. Because he has the Ni-Se axis and not Ne-Si axis. If you take Jung out of it then its nothing more than a rather useless four letter dichotomy which explains shit. "Come on scotty, get ove it^^ I hate the bias argument, don't you think you seem biased against her because you clearly didn't like what she wrote. For starters there were no auxiliary functions in Jung's personality types, there was just one function a person preferred while repressing the inferior one. There are outliers in all groups but the differences while there aren't enough o warrant stupid group loyalties. Clear Se/Ni dichotomy. I actually have a system but I never wrote it down because it's somewhat complicated, and it's just easier to explain through what people already understand. There may even be more. Here is an idea. com/2017/10/02/jung-trumpian-shadow/. I've seen so many ISTPs mistyped as INTPs here. Seriously this is MBTI , not chemical weapon. Jung's INFJ (Introverted Intuitive Feeling Rational):. The type of someone IS whatever people think it is, and the goal is to find it :p So I guess I'm one of those jerk typers, sorry to ruin your time here :/ The thing is sometimes people's nonsense is unbearable + this site is used by many as a solid basis (maybe more than CelebrityTypes) and I think aberrant unanimous typings must be adressed. It is not Ni, Ni seems to be, but what happens to it are cognitive problems due to drug use. We don't want this place to turn into one of those N types/NT/NF circle jerks. ), just that the repressed ones can manifest themselves in an invasive and unhealthy way, AND we were supposed to talk about a character who is unhealthy. Maybe you should analyze the characters you type based on their goals, behavior and motivations rather than quoting tumblrHow is "he's not empathetic under stress so he's an INFJ" any better than "he's too argumentative and stubborn to be INFJ", it can apply to literally anyoneI would rather see him as a stressed INFJ too. Like who is mistyped. I see Ti + Ne him, this explains how he lives imagining the possibilities and building a theory about what happened. His judgement on jews was kind of massive. Its predominance in the individual will often lead to muddle-headed mysticism and over-confidence in the subjective point of view. I totally agree on Dumbledore and Hannibal being INTJs and would never type them as NF. I have not seen a good enough argument for this ome to make a decision, because typing is not about guessing, you need information to get the typing right mostly. The difference would be that Rust collects them to resolve a case he's obsessed with and not only for the sake of it (like Fox Mulder, INTP, from the X-Files would for instance). anyways, any kind of unhealthy response can be developed under the right situation, just because you're an ESTJ doesn't mean you'll be overly cheesy (most likely the opposite. Its however very rare that an INTJ's auxiliary would be underdeveloped abnormally, that would rather indicate some kind of personality disorder causing anomalies. In this site you can find out which of the 16 types this character 'Rust Cohle' belongs to!. And how random sportsmen could me more intuitive than him. Also, he is using Ne making connections with new information he is obsessed with collecting. " If you speak french, here's the theory as I see it ( http://maaarine. Not INTJ at all, he's not driven by an objective and isn't stuck in this one vision. If people thought more this way we wouldn't have all those INFJ/ISTP votes : he's a NT, period. Make an irrefutable, comprehensive argument for your case instead of such useless comments. Who even cares, we’re all just walking meat sacks in the world with no purpose. How the hell would he be an INFJ.
. I don't buy the Ne argument, INFJs are known for making lists and collecting evidence as well. You're not arguing for INTP at all. woah that's just like the other 15 types, let's blame it all on inferior functionsI never said the main function weren't prefered (. She should've just omitted that whole section, because it just reads as subjective gibberish. who think they are mystical because they listen to Pink Floyd. Someone should really clean this site up. If the third function makes no sense then why is it in the stack or do you believe its the same as the inferior function. So most likely a Ti dom, INTP with Ni trends coming from the writer, with Se used as a character story drive. Ni and Ne are both big-picture oriented and abstract and Ti and Te are both logical/impersonnal. v=kiTvFaVs5Gc@Teru I actually didn't put across my opinion of Rust's type. Ni is actually, believe it or not, described as mystical by C. Ni-Ti: https://www. If he still had his kid and wife, who knows, maybe he'd be hugging everyone. Hitler would be an ISxP because he's not intuitive and he's not a judger. I said they become the opposite of what they usually are, not that they simply become stubborn. But I agree that he shows a lot of Ne symptoms too, but he seems to always draw his conclusions using some kind of Ti-Ni. "quintessial harry potter example" -> you said that, I just took this example randomly. And he's also very much in contact with his ESTP/Se shadow (watch the undercover episode). skrrt, I'm saying function grips are names pasted on traits everyone has under stress, not a real thing also never met an ESTJ who got cheesy because he was unhealthy, I did however know one who threw a fucking knife at my head because the hole he beat in his own door existed anyways guess he's just an exception to the rule and all the unhealthy domestic abusers are secretly cheesy hopeless romantics then The manifestations of the inferior functions aren't always as unealthy as throwing a knife at someone, that's not what I meant. Scientific consistency is the least of my concerns. We don't really know how Cohle was before his daughter died, but it seems his attitude changed. If you ask me Rust Cohle seems to be an ISTP using his ENFJ shadow type. But If you can't back up your claims, don't comment. Actually I missed your point about the certainty in typing others^^ To me it's not the issue. He makes me think of INFJ-Ti I know. Well I'm not going to argue against INTJ. If not then explain how you'll arrive at INTP using MBTI letter test. Maybe you should give some arguments before you start calling things clearUnhealthy INTP, type 5w6. g an NI-dom type which shows unusually high Fi (for whatever reasons) would be typed INFJ in MBTI letter code which wouldn't make sense because INFJs don't prefer Fi. If you want to experiment with the system. His nature is naturally pessimistic, which is more linked to the INTP's [Ti-Si], the fact that he explain random things while the car demonstrates his acting Ne. Oh and Dumbledor, the crying old man who turned bad by idealism and believes in the power of love(>all), a thinker. So-last INFJs are as isolated and withdrawn as any of the other INxx types, many of them are 5s or have strong 5-wings too, but other than that I agreeThese are not the arguments I gave. Ti-Si is more obsessing over details, while this attention to details and concrete elements is absent in Cole. Functional loops explain so much, the confusion caused by letter MBTI codes is solved with this, e. You are just dismissing what I'm not even claiming. MBTI detractor, who think the model is too unidimensional about personality aren't totally wrong and using the inferior functions to type removes this flaw. He's a 6 and either ISTP or a very dark and depressed INFJ. If you feel voters should only vote what you feel is right then you have to make effort. Let me laugh my way to Nebraska. They're both completely bogus typings if you want typology to mean anything. Cohle is stuck in the past and stunned by what happened to his daughter, and he doesn't really care anymore about his life and health, he just do a couple pull-ups in one episode for no reason. Cohle clearly show extraverted intuition when he talks to Marty in the car, or to the cops. As for the rest of you, all I hear is "He's Ni, no he's Ti, no he's in the Ni-Ti loop" without supporting evidence. I'm interested in your masterpiece. Hitler would be an INTJ, because he's not a nice INFJ with a nice Fe-second, then. Only INFJ and ISTP, which are a pretty silly function magic attempt at reconciling the dominant functions from his INTP and INTJ forms. This is true for all of the 16 types, e. Also, a primary-tertiary loop is usually unhealthy, even if we all use all our main functions to an extend. The man lost his child and he is just about, in the last episode, to recover from his unhealthy underuse of Fe/overuse of Ti. He also put people in boxes and has a lot of contempt for the religious. Too abstract in his thoughts to be a sensor, too scattered in what he says to be Ni. How'll you argue 4 letter dichotomies. But the two types having the same dominant function, it's not that absurd to do so. And just because MBTI isn't perfect, doesn't mean you should type by inferior functions and turn the whole thing into a mess that can be manipulated way more easily. Just that if you use one function, you'll see unhealthy aspect of its shadow as well. I told you already, INT is obvious because he is not a sensor and he is not a feeler. My "magical manual" had to do with people who got INTJ on MBTI Form M. There is no way he is an INFJ. When you compare him with a Ti-Si INTP, the difference is very clear. You can't say this for the heavily personalized "type yourself based on what you read on Tumblr" kind of pseudo-MBTI. Humor helps picture things. And I'm not masturbating to prove anything like you do, I just tell the way things seem congruent to me. It is a distorted personality, but do not see Fe aux it is inferior visible, so much so that he has his outbursts. Behold his mystical air. What is the best option for the MBTI type of Rust Cohle? What about enneagram and other personality types?. Certainly then Nietzsche's Fi cant't be explained. Being stunned in the past isn't always Si, I've already stated that. Where do you see secondary Fe there. And yes by definition INTPs would be less "mystical" than. It's a violent and lower side of his personality that emerges while playing someone he's actually not. The loop is real, I've experienced it myself. We can easily contrast them with Ni types Newton and Schopenhauer. According to Keirseyan/Behavioral enthusiasts only T types can be philosophers, logicians, scientists and such while feelers are world leaders, religious/communal leaders, artists etc. And how could he be ISTP or INTJ yet not INTP. His interrogation process is actually very close to Hercule Poirot's. If you want Rust to be a Ti dom, fine, but why INTP and not ISTP. And for the mystical part, INTP (even INTJ) can be very mystical too. I'm talking generally, it's not just random scenes. INTJ and INTJ less of a "impartial analyser" than INTP. And how isn't he a judger. It's also doubtful (though definitely not impossible) that an INFJ is that pessimistic. Yes its a thing. N and T is equated to intelligence and "awesomeness". No Ne whatsoever. "And it's not that hard to notice that an INFP can become as inflexible as an ESTJ sometimes, or that a ESTJ will become mysteriously as cheesy as they can be tough because of their inferior functions. "The mystical thing is just a dumb argument in general. I haven't seen the serie for a long time but as far as I remember he did have intuitions about the killer, that was linked to his vision of humanity as a whole. Honestly I see more than two types in him in different episodes. Choose if you will use Jung's cognitive theory or not. I often see the personal bias they imply. No, I never said it would always happen this way. I would suggest openness and a change in attitude change for the positive. g an NI-dom type which shows unusually high Fi" My problem with this theory is the representation people have of functions. I think my tertiary Fe is more than visible in my personal interactions. You should probably make up your mind about which system you want to operationalize. The Ni-Fi looping INTJ is drowning in endless feelings, mostly anger veiling a profound sadness with self. To be honest type itself has no scientific consistency, people get random types on random online "MBTI" tests. You can easily explain not being totally "thinking" or "feeling" or whatever without using any functions whatsoever. Atleast I'm consistent with my use of cognitive functions theory as opposed to your arbitrary use of different systems all at once. I mean people getting emotional over why the votes aren't according to their wishes for a complex fictional character is strange to me. wait you're saying that INFPs become stubborn under stress. The segregation between types is absurd. ^^ They aren't rare online actually, and often come off immature. I think for most of the iconic personalities with ample information about their philosophy, their outlook etc. I don’t CARE about being productive I’m just gonna sit here and SULK and not talk to anyone. I don't see INFJ, or really any Fe for that matter. Please explain this further/. Is it surprising. ” / ""Visions and intuitive insights are trusted and valued. I am talking about the processThank you, again, constructive arguments are what makes the databank a useful resource. Looping does not exist. Se-inf usually all or nothing about this kind of health issues. Not exactly, given the NF/NT supremacy that reigns the MBTI culture. If your source of typing is Jung, then why the fuck are you using "primary-tertiary loop". This place used to be fun, when people could share their ideas, take what they want and at the end of the day a light conversation about a hobby. They are "shadow functions" the reverse of the functions we use as our mental process. Now ask yourself which one fits Rust Cohle. @thedude, as I mentioned only a very stable character, a very human, very real character can be attempted to be typed with any seriousness. It's actually mostly INTJ who see "Ni" and realize that their thinking style is different, thus "Ti", making it an "Ni-Ti loop" and INFJ. Typing is an art, not a science :p You can often, for example, place someone in a temperament before seeing any function. And I'd say INTJ would be more prone to develop a discipline due to Te. He is clear INTP. I don't believe we "use" more than two functions and I think we can explain behaviour based on them (and the enneagram). He's uncomfortable with his auxiliary Fe (like many male INFJ) and appears to be ISTPish on the surface (not INTP at all). He is a perfect combination of Ni and Ti in my opinion. This phenomena is the cause of alot of mistyping in the online MBTI culture. If you purely used letters to arrive at this conclusion, what exactly are your reasons for that. He's totally an INTP. That the Cohle we see in the show isn't the usual Cohle (before and after it starts). The behaviour/result may be the same, but the internal process isn't. You think that impeccable made the most intelligent comment here, yet he did not say anything about the character. Atleast thats what my opinion is. I'm still going over the same evidence : what do you make of Rust confession-like use of Fe during interogations. Map me INTP for Cohle. That's it for me. But I know some Te who manifest something like a caricature of Fi. Its conceivers were well aware of its limitations. For evidence of strong Fe, look at the way he procedes in his interrogations, he's very manipulative, and at the same time compassionate. The dominant and auxiliary functions exclude the two others; if I have Ne as my auxiliary function I can't be "using" Si too (though I don't like that word, fucntions are not tools we choose, they're unconscious, not controled): I can't perceive the big picture, in an abstract and hypotheticaly-oriented way and at the same time be concrete-oriented, down-to-earth and subjectively "comparing" the environment with stored factual impressions. I guess you've never met a bitter and depressive INFJ. It's a manifestation of their shadow (and yes I'm into Jung's theories and if you aren't I don't give a shit). I'm wondering if ISTP is s possibility though. He's NT for sure because he is intuitive and thinking. But his intuition is turned within, and therefore he is primarily the type of the religious prophet, of the seer. Using the stereotypical dichotomies of T Vs F or N Vs S. It's "true and usually applies". From now on I am eliminating all emotions from my brain and forming no close relationships with anyone. Rest is all up for debate. If you don't identify with the use of tertiary function then that's pretty much upto you. All ESTJ won't become overly cheesy, it's just that some do while it doesn't seem to fit their personality at first. Don't care about life and health -> INFJ as Se-inf tend to be even more concerned than INTP. I didn't even talk about Rust at all ^^ here's a good case for him (in french) : http://maaarine. He invented a whole doctrine. We can discuss preference of cognitive functions. I don't find him scattered at all, it's like everything he said came from the same source (while in a INTP, it's more having random ideas). Compared to INTP they are more Ni, more in their abstraction, in their own vision of the world,as if they were trapped in it : they articulate it without Fe to block this processus and go to empathy/action. Also funny you put INTP and INTJ as only viable options given that they share not even a single cognitive function. Being value-driven maybe for example. I am sure that tertiary function or puerile function is very conscious and very evident in the person. Like I asked before how did you arrive at INT. Lol, I was just thinking that last night scotty. That's how she functions and how Rust works too :) Hermann : I mostly type using functions too but the letter by letter approach isn't wrong in itself. I feel there is some truth in this kind of article, about shadow being a part of humanity : http://quillette. "INFP with ESTJ shadow self" has nothing to do with Jung. Fe: "We are programmed with insurance that we are all somebody, when in fact we are all nobody. The method of obtaining type was completely consistent and thus could be used to predict someone's habits based on what they got on the test. Everything in life is meaningless, everyone will inevitably betray you, and emotions do nothing but hinder us. So INTP for me. He doesn't become an ISTP just because of that nor INTJ because he prefers Ti over Te. Also, he doesn't get along well with others and he butts in to other's conversations to correct them or give them answers even though he appears to be disconnected from their conversation. INTP votes are way off. It's not so much the function stack approach that bothers me, as the people who work their function magic with inferior and especially tertiary functions. Teru Mikami : Gueh. Se-inf, living in their ideas, can be quite disconnected from the physical world and be unconcerned about health;If I had a time machine, I'd do my best to get the Dom-Tert function loop creator some antipsychotics. He must be a really unhealthy one if we take this course -. He isn't a clear cut straight forward character afterall. The dynamic between secondary and tertiary often explains a lot about people's paradox, about how their character seems to shift. Every person’s preference can be found on a spectrum, so just choose the letter you identify with most.. And I don't type by "stupid interactions", I'm talking about people who did a lot of self-search and established they were indeed Ni-repressed Fe-strong Ti-Se. lol) makes its results questionable. Fuck that's exactly what an INTP would do. Dude, you clearly don't know what goes on in an INTP's mind. So much for INxJs being "unconcerned about health". I hope you don't think that talking about his dead child make him a feeler. INTJ all the way. It can't be possible unless the person is based on a very real person reflecting only his psyche onto the character. I agree lots of fictionnal characters can't and shoudn't be typed, often they're not realistic or developped enough, we can't type everyone and everything. "Fe poorly developed" that's I*TP. He is not Fe-aux, and loop is bullshit. The detail thing didn't seem to be the most relevant to me. Thinking – Feeling, represents how a person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic.. @Moolfreet: Functional loop isn't a made up concept. ah yes, the quintessential harry potter example that totally proves your point @Apocalypse, so you believe that Rust prefers Fe over Ti. Wouldn't it make sense that he has both Ti and Ni. The link I posted is of an INTJ + 1 from which I learned the MBTI theory, and I'm glad she has this detachment from the classical MBTI background everyone seems to have here because if I learned it somewhere else I might have fallen into the hole of the loops. If so what do you make of the undercover episode where he shows obvious Se, by diving into his shadowside. There is absolutely no high Fe in him. According to Jung we are a bit of both. (BTW my best friend is a twisted INTP and I do have a lot of experience dealing with this particular type. I am not seeing this site as a valid resource. Argue about INTP and INTJ all day long, at least those are reasonable typings because he has a preference for using both intuition and thinking functions, which is why they have to be above sensing and feeling functions. Most doctrines were created by sensors, but keep it goingWhat the fuck, too many INFJ votes, how the hell do you see Rust prefering Fe over Ti. You guys really need to stop stereotyping Fe as a people friendly function. Because it's true and usually applies. Jung and even later jungians rejected any use of behaviorism in cognitive typology.
