You’re an Architect. The first of sixteen types in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI, developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs, in 1962. Always emotionally stable, you look at the world from a logical perspective and seek to make sense of the patterns around you. Curious by nature, you want to know what makes things tick.
1/28. Orochimaru (Naruto)
Orochimaru was obsessed with the idea of immortality, so he set out to gain it by collecting all of the world’s knowledge and learning all of its jutsu. Orochimaru is a true INTJ villain, as he has a clear vision of where he wants to be and what he desires to do, which he will use to achieve his goals.
Every human being on this planet is a unique product of his or her experiences and environment, and it’s these differences — as well as the things that unite us — that fascinate Orochimaru. A scientist at heart, Orochimaru questions everything, and studies everyone around him with an eye towards understanding their inner workings better. His behavior is cruel, but he’s driven by a desire to improve himself and others — to uncover their true potential.
2/28. Near (Death Note)
Near is a detective so brilliant, Sherlock Holmes would be envious. Though he can be cold, Near is also childlike, curious and naive in ways that will surprise you as the story progresses. He’s serious about bringing Kira to justice, but his eccentricities often get in the way of his mission. Like Holmes (and other geniuses before him), Near uses his powers of deduction to interpret evidence and solve crimes.
3/28. Sosuke Aizen (Bleach)
Any personality type of MBTI can be used to create a compelling antihero, and if you’re looking to make your character seem really brilliant, or really diabolical, your best bet is to pick an INTJ. In the manga ‘Bleach’ the antagonist Sosuke Aizen is a classic INTJ villain: reclusive, mysterious and very good at thinking.
Han Seung-Ri: the Manipulator Extraordinaire As a villainous ENTJ, Han Seung-Ri has supporters and proxies, but no friends, and would alienate his fans if he let them down. He’s been preparing for this moment for years, and only now does he have the chance to claim glory for himself.
4/28. Seto Kaiba (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Seto Kaiba of Yu-Gi-Oh! is an INTJ Architect. His ambitious, elite personality, cold demeanor and analytical thinking style make his ENTP shadow self seem like a wild card. If a picture is worth a thousand words, Kaiba’s Keirsey portrait says it all: he sits with his back straight and legs crossed, looking directly into the camera with a questionable expression that seems to say “the future is uncertain.
Seto Kaiba is the most INTJ and ENTJ-ish character in Yu-Gi-Oh!, whose plot revolves around the light world of dueling, romance and magic. An egomaniacal, ruthless but kindhearted character, at times Kaiba can be a bit of a jerk to others, but his friends are able to forgive him easily because he’s always willing to help them.
5/28. Metropoliman (Platinum End)
You know what’s cool? INTJ villains. You know what’s cooler than that? An INTJ villain who is also a reluctant protagonist. Enter – Mirai Kakehashi, a powerful individual who has her hands full trying to take down Metropoliman, no matter how hard she tries. She knows that even if she manages to win this battle, the war could be lost. How will she fare in this fight for existence itself?
Metropoliman is the kind of guy who never gives up. He’s a juggernaut, someone who will stop at nothing what he needs. A true leader! And despite his villainous ways, you can’t deny that he knows what he’s doing.

6/28. Demon Lord Clayman (That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime)
Anime villains are often portrayed with negative traits, but there are a few that rise above the rest. For example, ENTPs — who make up about 3% of the population — are plan-makers with an eye for details. They can be highly manipulative and are excellent at convincing others to do their bidding. If you want to know why your boss is such a hard-ass, these characters may provide some sorely needed perspective.
7/28. Amon (The Legend Of Korra)
The animated series Legend of Korra is an whose first major antagonist, the revolutionary masked Amon, has been confirmed by fans to have INTJ preferences. As a master strategist, planner and organizer, this villain hopes to gain control over Republic City with nothing but his wit. If he had to play chess against you, you would be in checkmate within 20 moves.
Not only is Amon an excellent leader, but he is completely decisive and sure of his vision. His resolve is unshakable, even by the most frustrating setbacks — his cause is all he can think about. He’s got a dry sense of humour, but won’t tolerate failure from those who answer to him. Even though he’s willing to compromise his own values for the greater good, he wants you to know that he will keeps eyes on the prize.
8/28. Zeref Dragneel (Fairy Tail)
Zeref is a fairytale — and don’t we all love an old-fashioned fable with a dark twist? Let the classic beauty of his design and that dark backstory draw you in, but let his destructive actions and ultimate goal sway you back to reality: beware of the villain behind the fairytale.
Zeref is the most powerful mage in existence — as long as we’re talking about destructive magic, that is. That’s because his entire body was literally imbued with evil, turning him into an immortal entity with no sense of good or evil. His sister Mavis, on the other hand, is a good-natured innocent who spends her time destroying Zeref’s creations.
9/28. Meruem (Hunter x Hunter)
If you look back at the beginning of Hunter x Hunter, you’ll notice that two of the main villains were aloof and cold. Chrollo Lucifer was a charismatic Commander, but Meruem was an Architect, and even aloof than Chrollo. He was withdrawn and disinterested in those around him, but still fascinating to watch.
10/28. Kirari Momobami (Kakegurui)
Winter is a masterful INTJ who is used to getting her own way. She’s the rare villain who is so cold and calculating she doesn’t care about power or wealth, but rather just follows her own desires. If you play by her rules though, you’ll find that Winter has a heart of gold — but make sure you don’t break the rules. Or else she’ll break you instead.

11/28. Sasuke (Naruto)
It’s a hot debate whether Sasuke could beat up Naruto. Yeah. I know. But let’s be honest here: the dude is on a whole other level. The fact that he had the chutzpah to try to pull off the idea of a world without hatred when he was on the cusp of falling into hatred himself makes me *whew* just trying to think about it.
12/28. Elsa (Frozen)
Elsa is one of the most complex characters in Disney’s Frozen, and we think she’s an INTJ. She may be reserved and self-controlled, but she has the heart of a leader. Fans agree, seeing her as the best candidate to lead Arendelle if Anna had not returned when she did.
13/28. Apollo (Blood of Zeus)
Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto. As a child, he is said to have meditated for nine days straight on Mount Parnassus, which gave him his command of the arts and his creative intellect. He appears in the Iliad as a calm, collected adviser to Zeus and a defender of Olympus. In fact, he’s not shy about defending when necessary; he once slew an entire army single-handedly!
14/28. Thors Karlsefni (Vinland Saga)
It’s a well-known fact that INTJs are very goal oriented, but few people realize that this is one of the biggest reasons why so many people have trouble relating to them. Thors from the anime “Noragami” is a good example of an INTJ because he has a lot of focus on achieving his goals and aims. Let’s take a closer look at him. He sure is one tough cookie!
15/28. Lawlite “L” (Death Note)
Lawlite here might seem like a bit of a cold fish, but don’t worry! He’s super friendly and intelligent. In fact, he’s the greatest detective in the world — right up there with Sherlock Holmes. That said, he’s entirely unlike the world’s most famous detective.

16/28. Teru Mikami (Death Note)
Teru has a very ISTP-ish vibe. He’s definitely an introvert, and the way he focuses on one goal without any thought to anything else tells us that he’s unlikely to react to outside stimuli. (Unless it has to do with his goal, of course.) His total lack of emotional reaction is hilarious and terrifying at the same time.
17/28. Shun Kazami (BakuganBattle Brawlers)
Shun Kazami is an INTJ out of the series Bakugan Battle Brawlers. INTJs love logical games like puzzles and word games, so it’s no wonder that they are big fans of this series. Just like Shun Kazami, INTJs are strategic thinkers who think a lot before they do anything. Shun does perfection — in fact, he’s one of the best Brawlers in his world.
18/28. Kiriya Ubuyashiki (Demon Slayer)
This character is depicted as cold, composed, and dominant. Kiriya’s strategies and leadership qualities help the demon slayers to succeed in their missions. He analyzes his opponents by carefully predicting their next moves, which gives him a good understanding of how to best defeat them — an ability that makes him an INTJ.
19/28. Long Feng Airbender (Avatar the Last Airbender)
Long Feng is a complete enigma. He could be an INTP. He could be an ENTJ. However, it is far more likely that he is an enneagram 8 with an INTJ personality. The evidence shows that he desires power, which points to the fact that he is a number eight, while his desire to think and plan ahead point toward his having an INTJ personality type.
20/28. Yako (Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun)
Yako is a very intense character, as you may have already guessed. She is relatively self-conscious, and often looks down upon the humans she comes into contact with. However, Yako is known to be rather logical: she thinks before she acts, making her an INTJ.

21/28. Prince Canute (Vinland Saga)
Prince Canute is an incredible character. Throughout the show, we see this character change dramatically from being a weak, timid king to becoming confrontational, manipulative and commanding. His final personality is more reserved and analytical. What’s most striking about Prince Canute is his ability to plan and control himself, which makes him a textbook INTJ.
22/28. Kanata kamado (Demon Slayer)
Kanata is an ever-calm and calculating presence. He’s not someone who would hold back his thoughts and feelings, especially where Toko is concerned. This makes him a kind of traditionalist (‘traditional’ in the sense that he follows tradition to a fault, rather than the “old-fashioned” connotation). Despite this, he’s willing to take chances when it comes to love. We’ll see how that plays out.
23/28. Kokushibo (Demon Slayer)
Kokushibo was an INTJ archetype. He had the loner, serious yet dark personality you’d expect from someone with an INTJ Myers-Briggs personality type. He was always ready to help his boss out, albeit in a cold and logical way. Few could understand him — but he never really bothered trying to explain himself to others anyway.
24/28. Kakashi (Naruto)
If you are a fan of the Naruto, you have heard of Kakashi. I mean, he’s pretty enthusiastic about his love for the anime/manga. He’s also pretty talented, something that we can relate to (just look at his Sharingan!). But is Kakashi an INTJ? It depends — that reserved attitude and those insightful comments are a little too logical and harsh for our tastes.

25/28. Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)
If you’re a regular reader of the Attack on Titan manga, you probably know Levi Ackerman, who is often regarded as the strongest soldier alive. He uses his logic and understanding of the battlefield in pretty much every part of his life. Being an INTJ myself, I can easily identify with him — even if he does seem very antisocial at times! With his might and logical brain, he often does everything to win.
26/28. Stewie Griffin (Family Guy)
Even though Stewie is 1 year old, he’s probably one of the most beloved Family Guy characters out there. He’s a total smart-ass and evil mastermind, but he’s also very self-aware and can be very empathetic. Is Stewie an INTJ? You know it.
27/28. Silverfang (One Punch Man)
INTJ’s are known for existing in a state of permanent calm. They love people who are competent and reliable (but they’re not so fond of people who like to deliver bad news). INTJ’s love a good problem to solve, and their knack for thinking through solutions in a tense environment makes them a truly valuable asset to your business.
28/28. Masquerade (Bakugan Battle Brawlers)
For most of the first part, Masquerade may have been very bad in Bakugan, but he was defeated by Shun, who is arguably the show’s most lovable character. INTJs are known to defeat all other types when it comes to online debates and public speaking, and Masquerade should have expected no different on his end.
