Tywin Lannister Myers-Brigs type - MBTI, enneagram and personality type info
cersei is not ESFJ because she love her children but because she use more emotionnal manipulation(Fe) than strategy (Te). Loyal to their peers and to their internal value systems, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. Detached and analytical, they excel at finding solutions to practical problems.. learn something in your life. and yeah he is so 8w9 than it hurts. other argument for Si is his interraction with Arya he know how the world work and always had working about the women in game of thrones and tell her "you're too smart for you own good" an ENTJ will see that as a clue for the the new place of women which happen later in the series. I also believe ESTJs will show more traditional calmness and orderliness than an ENTJ. ENFJ- best leader are you stupid. if he were Ni he would choose a symbolic heritage and would care about a spiritual successor, Tywin is obsessed by his genetic sucsessor (Si) *emotionnal manipulation = Fe. The way he handled the relationships with his children seems Ni to me. Tywin has an intuitive perception, he even told Cersei that she is not as smart as she thinks she is, and that's precisely why he has a certain contempt, not because she is a woman. If you can have your moments, but will focus on practical and efficient training and avoid things that do not exist at the moment. Tywin is not ESTJ because he knows a lot of reasoning out of the box and has a good visueTywin is not ESTJ because he knows a lot of reasoning out of the box and has a good view on the future and the unfolding of events. ENTJs would strive for out of box solutions while ESTJs will apply tried and tested solutions with perfection. DiamondDust summed it up well, he is strategic in the sense of long-range vision rather than taking precautions against unforeseen events. Peoples' perception of his house became his obession, and I believe it to be Ni that he had in his childhood that caused him to be so influenced by this. his thinking outside the box is his tertiary Ne. Obviously INTJ, ENTJs are much more engaging and give more direct orders. I personally still believe in Ni, as with nearly everyone else it seems.

Jung also proposed that in a person one of the four functions above is dominant – either a function of perception or a function of judging.. I feel that with Si he would have been much more involved with his two eldest children's incest, as he did know about it. why ENTJ would be more strategic than ESTJ, strategy is linked to Te and they are both Te dom, your argument is invalid Tywin is almost completely Te, so trying to distinguish which percieving process he uses seems pretty pointless. 8w9, he's way too corrupt to be a 1w9. like i said before i don't care about your life. Tywin's obsession with legacy is, if anything, an affirmation of his focus on the future, which suggests Ni. F = Logistic Yes it's true. Tywin is naturally more focused on the future, understands Tyrion's reasonings, not consequences as he knows how to manipulate events and on what path they will arrive and keep. Not that I am saying SJs fear that. Welcome to MBTIBase - PersonalityBase, here you can learn about Tywin Lannister MBTI type.. You could also make the point that generally an ENTJ would be more strategic than an ESTJ. In fact, his calm nature is probably some low level of anti-social personality disorder. I'm Fi-dom and I'm a good manipulator. These military xSTJs are more logistic and tactical, do not stand out as much in strategy as NTJs. Remember, we see mostly the extroverted functions in social interaction. He does not show more Ni than SI , his hate against Tyrion is clearly an unheathy Si , he can not forget tyrion kill his mother when he was born. His confidence and ability to deal with people comes from Te and the confidence INTjs naturally have. Fg, stop to be an idiot. I always knew he is an ETJ but didn't know NI or Si. Calculation of schem is not an intuitive thinking just an indicator of TeFg, his logic is typical of an ISTJ. Ni is his approach/mental process and doesn't necessarily dictate his drive. I don't know much about game of throne. He is concerned about the legacy, but this may be totally something intuitive, which care about the image in the future. He has grand schemes/long term plans and he doesn't feel uncomfortable doing what hasn't been done before. @fg I think you are confusing "tools" with purposes/goals. S = Tactic N = Strategy. Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding Tywin Lannister Myers-Briggs and personality type!. Emotional manipulation can be used by any type, Littlefinger is an INTJ and is a master nihis logic is typical of an ISTJ. "long term big picture"ESTJ can also plan for long term ,but look how he politically process he never try to make innovation in the Game of thrones he just know how the world have worked and work actually and apply that rules (Si). ENTJs are more likely to take risks while ESTJs seek security first. ENTJs naturally have better envisioning and anticipation but ESTjs are better handlers of issues at hand, thus more practical. ENTJ focus on a symbol/vision and takes immediate action towards that intuition. This in the regard that he looks at things more in the long run/the big picture of things, and doesn't have the directness that Cersei has, which seems more Ni than Si to me. the ENTJ in the show is littlefinger. An S may have a good strategic notion, but can not cover better than a natural intuitive. You certainly have a point with Tyrion though, it really seems like unhealthy Si, but then these are fictional characters. Once I figured out (with help from elfboy) that he is an 8w9 sp/so figuring out his MBTI type was easy. he know cersei's competence of course he is a Te dom. Robb Stark had a good administration, was proud, and preferred practical methods than more abstract things like Roose's. Robb is also young, has his visionary moments, but is more deficient in think of more daring and real ways, he does not read the hidden messages of his actions, hessto think of more daring and real ways, he does not read the hidden messages of his actions, he relies on traditions and tactics than on the far reaches that are in more subtle ways, different from Tywin. ESTJ Si legacy over Ni vision being a strategist does not make him ENTJ. ENTJ's have a calmer, measured pace about them. Thinking – Feeling, represents how a person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic.. He's image oriented. His approach from cersei is different because of the enneagramm. emotionnal manipulation = Fe. His approaches seems different to Cersei, who is very likely ESTJ (and no, loving her children doesn't make her ESFJ). He's not an XSTJ, he's not family oriented, he uses his family in the power game, they are useful for him in his plans. Every person’s preference can be found on a spectrum, so just choose the letter you identify with most.. Tywin is Very visionary everthing ALL, that is more N than S. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. Si types on the other hand are inherently insecure and seek security to boost confidence, they tend to over prepare using well tried and tested matters, therefore more likely linked with compulsive behavior. I also believe he had a "romantic" vision of his house, one goal that he put above all others. the proof is his interraction with cersei and tyrion when he wanted to marrying them to loras and sansa,both rejected that and he answer that's how the world work. i don't care about your life or the ability you think have , or even the type you think to be. Emotional manipulation can be used from any personality type. power angry like a 8 , want glory 3 and supicious 6. Damn, you're getting pretty intense there man. In Westeros, everything is about family. Robb stark is not ESTJ how could an inferior Fi could let his love go beyond his milittary plan, Robb is ESFJ. More ENTJ than ESTJ. And about logistics, it's characteristic of SJ, but just have common sense that you can apply in his life in a less obsessive way as an SJ do Si is about experiences, details, information but not visionism. I am INFP and I am a better strategist than my ISTJ friends, who do not think about possibilities and exploration of scenarios. Though ENTJ makes more sense I see no reason why Tywin can't be an ESTJ. Jung theorized that the dominant function acts alone in its preferred world: exterior for extraverts and interior for introverts.. if he were Ni he would choose a symbolic heritage and would care about a spiritual successor, Tywin is obsessed by his genetic sucsessor (Si)I think you're reading too much into that. if he was an intuitive he would have notice the incestuous relationship between his children. You would also type a lot of xNxJ conservatives as xSxJ using that logic because their values will misleadingly suggest Si. He's family oriented. Knowing this, Si can be good in the short term, but in the long run it is more dangerous and risky, which SJs avoid using too much. They have six moments, but they prefer a dependable approach than daring, the same applies to a lesser extent with ESTJs. Strategy is ability to visualize scenarios and explore them in order to conquer something in the long or medium term, which is more Ni and Ne (N) than Si and Se (S) Tywin is always interested in preserving himself in the future, not so far as a Ni-dom, but good enough to control the possible future and take advantage of scenarios and errors with to get up Tywin is always interested in preserving himself in the future, not so far as a Ni-dom, but good enough to control the possible future and take advantage of scenarios and errors to get up. É apenasThat is precisely why I prefer to use objectivity of letters than this stupid combination of tertiary functions. Tywin's work to correct his family's "brand name influence" just seems like Te to me and I don't see a definitive reason to pick Ni or Si in that situation. "IMO his practicality comes from his experience and old age. ESTJ takes precaution in case of unforseenable future. Most fictional ENTJ are psychopathic and real ENTJ probably look a lot like ESTJ. Tywin is above all else reserved, traditional, and family oriented. On a side note: Ni types are more likely to be confident of themselves and their vision and thus have narcissistic tendencies and therefore a little careless at times. Types behave differently in different environments. if you insult me again i will break your little sensitive Fi. Emotional manipulation can be used from any personality type. This is more intuitive than sensory, and more Ni than Si. In this site you can find out which of the 16 types this character 'Tywin Lannister' belongs to!. Cersei admires him and whishes she could be like him. They are impersonal but not shy at all. Basically, control freaks and micro managers to the core. However reading all of Fg's reasoning I don't feel convienced, and Derek makes a good point on how the setting of Westeros is going to make all powerful leaders have a bit of Si tendancies since their family means a lot. Si is linked to prudence, focused on detail(Tywin did focus on detailed relathionship between the frey and the Stark for win)so it's also linked to strategy.
. He def isn't as N as littlefinger though, the guy basically lives in his head with all the calculations and schemes. I'm Fi-dom and I'm a good manipulator. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Tywin Lannister likely is!. becaused your vote point out a mental disease. she know cersei's competence of course he is a Te dom. if he was an intuitive he would have notice the incestuous relationship between his children. In other words, what I am seeing from you is just more SJ negative bias instead of accepting that NJ are equally rage-tastic when things don't go their way. If your theory about No were true then it would mean that any time something doesn't go according to plan an Ni user should 'freak out' in the same way that an ESTJ freaks out with its extroverted Te meltdowns. if you continue to use letter go to an other site. Caring about his legacy doesn't make him ESTJ either my dudieSI is by definition family oriented and attentive to legacy by definition. He use he's family to look good, basically. Still his general approach to things gives a more intuitive feeling, as if it comes from his theoretical worldview of a world which is largely sensory but the approach is still intuitive. If you want an ESTJ, look at Robb Stark. Tywin is an master of strategy, no tactic: again more N than S "Fg, stop to be an idiot. Not everyone who is afraid of change has high Si though. Tywin is Very visionary everthing ALL, that is more N than S. Te basically wants the individual to be in control of things. Tywin is an master of strategy, no tactic: again more N than S"tactic is not more N than S it is Te , we have far more ISTJ military important leader than INTJ military leader, so stop right now with intuitive bias. That being said, xSTJ military leaders tend to be very good a logistics, whereas xNTJ military leaders tend to be better at strategy. his thinking outside the box is his tertiary Ne. " I'll have to look back at the books to see which he corresponded to more. Emotional manipulation can be used by any type, Littlefinger is an INTJ and is a master at emotional manipulation. Though I guess you could say it is twisted Si, as it was all borne from his childhood, how his family's name was ruined under his father. He cares about his family "legacy" (actually more like future then legacy) because it is a world where family represents a lot more, it represents power. he is also too practical and not enough abstract to be ENTJ (look at littlefinger a true ENTJ)IMO his practicality comes from his experience and old age. Tywin is obsessed by future bu this obsession is manly the fear of seeing dissepear the greatness of his family (Si+lower Ne, fear of change) You have a point there, but he also said (in the show) that he wants the Lannisters to "found a dynasty that lasts a thousand years.
. "Si definition here ,Si is the more experience oriented function. 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.
