Um, hello Personality cafe :). I'm still quite new here and haven't posted very often, but I've decided to create this new thread about Naruto characters' myers-briggs personality types. Here are some of my opinions:
Naruto- ENFx. I know most people instantly classify Naruto as an ESFP, but in the past, I've thought of him as being an ENFJ, since Naruto posesses that ability to change those around him like ENFJs are said to be able to, while having a darker and more insecure side to himself at times as well. However, he could also very well be an ENFP, since he is generally quite wild, spontaneous, random and able to inspire those around him.
Sasuke- INTJ. It's a bit difficult to give Sasuke a specific personality type, since he seems to be an ISTJ at times due to his not being able to let go of the past, but after rereading the INTJ personality description, I believe he is more an INTJ, since they're said to be withdrawn and focused on their goals.
Sakura- ESFJ. Many people believe she is an ENFJ, but I honestly can't picture her as one. To me, she appears to be more of an ESFJ, as ESFJ's are said to be nurturers whom generally perform quite well in the health department, which fits Sakura with her medical abilities, and practical, down-to-earth providers whose main focus is serving those around them, which also describes her precisely.
Hinata- definite INFP. Us INFPs are said to appear to be withdrawn and reserved upon first glance, but in reality have a rich, passionate inner world with a deep capacity for caring, which fits Hinata to a tee. In addition to being generally thoughtful and caring, INFP's also value harmony and consensus and hold an extreme dislike of conflict, which Neji himself described to be a part of Hinata's personality during his fight against her in the Chunin Exams.
Kiba- ESTP. ESTPs are described as being very outgoing and action-oriented individuals whom are quite loyal to their close ones and enjoy taking risks.
Shino- Another hard one to do. As Shino is generally secluded and reserved, its hard to tell what type of a personality Shino might truly have. I've thought him to be an INTJ and ISTP in the past, but after truly thinking it through, ISTJ is closests to Shino's personality, since he appears to be quite organized and traditional for the most part.
Ino- obvious ESFP. Ino is a highly extroverted and fun-loving being whom is spontaneous and enjoys the present and having a good time. As ESFP's are said to have, Ino has a high affinity for beauty and nature, although she also tends to be quite shallow and materialistic at times (not trying to insult any ESFPs or anything! *sweatdrop*).
Shikamaru- INTP. Shikamaru is definetly an introvert, and despite his being highly logical and analytical, he seems to be quite intuitive and enjoys listening to possible theories as well.
Chouji- ISFP. ISFP's are said to be kind-hearted and soft-spoken individuals whom enjoy the present moment and the beauty surrounding them and hold a practical view of their world, which fits Chouji quite well.
Neji- ISTJ. Neji is a perfect example of a typical ISTJ, as he is a realistic traditionalist whom values rules and structure. As some ISTJs are described to be, he has had trouble releaing the past and opening his eyes to the future in prior times.
Tenten- I'm not particularly sure about Tenten's personality type, as not much background information has been given about her, but based on what I've seen, I'll say she is an ENFJ. Tenten appears to be quite extroverted and tomboyish, and, according to some information from Kishi (the manga's author), to be a generous and loyal person whom enjoys serving those around her whenever she can.
Rock Lee and Maito Guy- definite ExFPs. I've decided to put them both together, since their personalities are so similar to one anothers. Both Gai and Lee have extremely passionate and enthusiastic personalities with tendencies to be random and idealistic, which is why I believe they could be a possible ENFPs, but at the same time, they could be an ESFPs as well, since they're both quite talented with their bodies and enjoy doing things in the present.
Haku- Another INFP. At first, I initially thought he was an ISFJ, since he was very kind-hearted and loyal and seemingly enjoyed fulfilling his duties, but once I randomly read about his personality today, he seemed to fit the INFP personality type to a tee. Haku mainly wanted a purpose in life and to be appreciated and loved by someone for merely being himself, which is one of INFPs main traits. As a child, he also seemed to be quite curious and perhaps even idealistic. He maintained a complex internal value system as well and held a strong dislike towards conflict and avoided it whenever he possibly could.
Temari- ESTJ. During the first part of the Naruto series, Temari appeared to be quite ENTJ- like, since she seemed to be authorative and and dominant, wanting to constantly pick fights and arguments with others, but as the series progressed, she became more of an ESTJ, since she is quite level-headed and seems to value stability and peace.
Gaara- Although I'm not too sure, I'll say INTJ. Gaara in the past was shown to be quite withdrawn and hasn't been presented as being naturally sensitive and in-tune with others' feelings. In additon, he tends to bottle up his emotions within rather than express them.
Sai- INTP. Sai has been presented as a character whom has had trouble understanding other peoples' emotions (not that I'm saying INTP's are like this...), and although he has good intentions and continually attempts to undertand others, he generally misunderstood or comes off as being awkward, thus making me think he's an INTP due to the "awkwardness" of his personality.
Tsunade- ENFJ, since she is passionate and has great leaderships skills, and yet tends to turn to dark thoughts when alone and be skeptical about whom to trust.
Shizune- ISFJ. ISFJ's are said to be warm-hearted and compassionate duty fulfillers whom are practical and have extraordinary organization skills, which describes Shizune precisely.
Jiraiya- classic ENFP. During the time he was alive, Jiraiya was highly idealistic and held high dreams for the society around him. He was also shown to be quite random and inspiring towards others.
Kurenai- I'm not too sure about her, either, but I'd say she's an ISFJ, since she seems to generally be honest, supportive and caring for her students.
Kakashi- INTP, since he appears to be quite logical and perceptive for the most part. As a child, he appeared to be an ISTJ though, from what I saw in Kakashi Gaiden.
Rin- INFJ, since she was seemingly humble, nurturing and caring towards her comrades.
Obito- ENFx like Naruto, for the same reasons.
I'm sorry if this seems long.... I just wanted to see what you guys opinions on the Naruto characters' personality types were. Again, these are just my opinions and beliefs, and I'm willing to hear your thoughts as well!
