Person of Interest MBTI (inspired by [x])
Reese, ESTJ -The Guardian
Hard-working, dependable, practical. Decisive, quickly move to implement decisions. Because of their orthodox approach to life, they can sometimes be seen as rigid, stubborn and unyielding. They can at times appear critical and overly aggressive, particularly when other people fail to live up to their high standards.
Finch, INTP - The Architect
Theoretical, abstract, quiet, reserved. Interested more in ideas than in social interaction. The world exists primarily to be analyzed, understood, explained and re-designed. External reality in itself is unimportant, little more than raw material to be organized into structural models…their designs are elegant, that is, efficient and coherent. Sometimes strike others as aloof and detached.
Shaw, ISTP - The Operator
Action-oriented, realistic, practical. Quiet observers until a problem appears, then act quickly to find workable solutions. Interested in cause and effect, organize facts using logical principles, value efficiency. Enjoy new experiences and may often engage in thrill-seeking or even risk-taking behaviors. Not naturally emotional…may have difficulties recognizing the boundaries of what is allowed and expected in emotionally charged situations.
Root, ENTP - The Visionary
Ingenious, alert, resourceful. Good at reading other people. Bored by routine, will seldom do the same thing the same way. Does not like to be controlled. Their love of debates leads ENTPs to take on the role of the devil’s advocate, which can sometimes lead to conflicts with others who feel like they are being intentionally combative and antagonistic. ”It can’t be done” is a challenge to an Inventor and elicits a reaction of “I can do it.”
Fusco, ESFP -The Performer
Outgoing, friendly, and accepting. Enjoy working with others to make things happen. Bring common sense and a realistic approach to their work, and make work fun. Adapt readily to new people and environments. The most generous of all the types…they give what they have to one and all without expectation of reward, just as they love freely, and without expecting anything in return.
Carter, ENFJ - The Teacher
Warm, empathetic, responsible. Highly attuned to the emotions, needs, and motivations of others. Find potential in everyone, want to help others fulfill their potential. May act as catalysts for individual and group growth. Often so interested in devoting their time to others that they can neglect their own needs. Also have a tendency to be too hard on themselves, blaming themselves for when things go wrong and not giving themselves enough credit when things go right.
Elias, INTJ - The Mastermind
Original, driven, theoretical. Develop long-range explanatory perspectives. When committed, organize a job and carry it through. Skeptical and independent, have high standards of competence and performance – for themselves and others. Dislikes confusion, disorganization and inefficiency. Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds…prefer to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead.
Ingram, ENFP - The Champion
Warm, enthusiastic, imaginative. See life as full of possibilities. Make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see. Often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency. Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions.
