I've been searching the internet looking for a definitive list that was actually accurate, but all i can find is a bunch of people who have no idea what they're talking about, and insist upon speaking like they do.

The main idea here is to also give REASONS why we think the way we do, so as to come to a general consensus. thank you
PLEASE POST YOUR THOUGHTS SO THAT WE MAY REACH THE TRUTH. I WANT TO KNOW IF I'M WRONG

Yusuke - ESTP
- classic definition of an ESTP. the "doer" , the "bad-boy"Yusuke definitely lives in his Se. He takes things literally for what they are and lives in the present through his 5 senses. He makes decisions based on logical thought patterns, a clear T, and on top that works out these thoughts in his internal world Ti. He does have sudden spurts of compassion though (his tertiary Fe), and when it comes to careful and meticulous forethought and big-picture viewing, hes often left in the dust (inferior Ni)

Kuwabara - ESFJ or ENFJ (help please)
The big problem for me here is the s versus n. He is clearly an EFJ, he makes decisions based on his feelings and centers himself upon goals and morals. He has an unshakable moral value system and fights for love and honour. Now i would intially think he is an iNtuitive, because of his literal ability to go beyond the 5 senses. He senses spirits etc and gets "hunches or feelings" about situations, but at the same time, usually lacks insight into a present situation, furthering the idea that he is more detached and in the clouds than an s. neverthelesss he does exhibit strong sensing qualities.

Hiei - ENTJ
sure, he spends time alone in the wilderness, but this guy is basically the definition of ENTJ. goal/task oriented, gives no weight to emotions and makes every decision off of pure logical analysis, and quick to see the relationships between different opportunities and events. I get the ENTJ especially from his determination to "share" his NTJness with the world by taking it over (during his first encounter with Yusuke) and he definitely lives primarily in his Extroverted Thinking, not circumspect in saying what he thinks regardless of people's (especially kuwabara's) feelings.

Kurama
strangely enough these are two separate personalities and identities
Suichi Minamono (human form) - INFP
- idealistic, guided by a moral compass, isn't hesitant to share his feelings on a subject and makes many decisions based off of his F, concerned with those around him. Now, Kurama is a very interesting character as his two identities are not completely separate. In fact, as it is the newer personality it forms a sort of thin covering over his initial self the:

Yoko Kurama (demon form)- INTP (or xNTP)

Indeed this comes out in some aspects of his human form. Even though his human form is guided by his feelings, the Ti will sometimes shine through, revealing clues as to the original identity of Kurama. "Cold and calculating" holding back brash actions, controlling his emotions and showing patience in planning, Yoko is the epitomy of an INTP. At the same time, guided by his Ti, where he formulates all of his plans, he still shows a remarkable ability to connive and manipulate the situation in the manner of the xNTP. He has the ability to plan multiple steps ahead (N) and questions the world around him as an intp does. I first thought him to be an ENTP, besides the more obvious representation of the FOX (the ENTP's animal), he has an uncanny ability to persuade others and have them join in his causes. his E shows in his power to charm others aswell as his desire to influence his external world by robbing excessively, and impact the world around him, confirm his role as an ENTP. My solution was to merge the two, as he does live prmiarily in the state of INTP, but does show significant flashes of ENTP-dom in his interactions and manipulations with others. The XNTP - a mix of both

More coming soon, i grow tired

Hey, cool! I've had a similar discussion with an INTJ friend.

Main

Yusuke: xSTP - He sits on the fence to me. He alternately seeks out and avoids interaction.

Kuwabara: Definitely ESFJ; he's not really into the world of abstract ideas.

Hiei: Insecure INTP - He tries to compensate by projecting a more extroverted persona sometimes.

Kurama: INFJ - I'd say he more of a planner than spontaneous; his demon form, to me, seems INTJ.


Secondary

Yukina: ISFP - "The 'nicest' of all the types" + "five senses" (she seeks experience) ; moral grounds (the Ice Village)

Shizuru: ISxP - Generally, she avoids expressing her emotions and handles problems in an immediate, often violent way. On the other hand, she can be very caring and gentle.

Keiko: ISFJ - Conventional, does the right thing, quietly supportive, reliable.

Botan: ENFJ - Plans, but also can be impulsive, bossy, pedagogical, abstract, exuberant and otherworldly.

Mukuro: "Dark" INFP - Overflowing with her own philosophies and emotions but bottles them up, which leads to depression and anger. She finds her peace in expressing them to Hiei.

Yusuke: ESTP. Gregarious, lives in the moment, extremely aware of his surroundings, tactical genius. Happens to be the type of Zhukov and Patton. I'd say they drew inspiration on them.

Hiei: ISTP Reserved, aloof, cerebral tactical genius.

Kwabara: ENFJ

Kurama: INFJ

Yoko: ENTP

Botan: ENFP

Genkai: INTJ

Toguro: ESTJ

Koenma: ENTP

Sensui INFJ

I hadn't thought of Hiei as an ISTP, but it's definitely a possibility

Toguro is almost a stereotypical ESTJ. Traditional, follows his code of morals harshly (kicked his brother off the stadium), definetely aware of his surroundings, doesn't behave like a mastermind. More of a decide on the spot kind of thing.

Elder toguro might be an INTJ.

Genkai: I had a real doubt on that one. She was too much of a teacher to be an ISTP in my opinion and generated a few plans of her own after she was ressurrected. But she might very well be an ISTP.

Koenma: Either ENTP or ENTJ. His childish appearance might have been an act, a la jim carrey.


As for kwabara... I think he isn't aware of his surroundings as everyone else, reason of which he gets his ass severely kicked constantly. Seems to trust his gut more than anything, that being the reason he went to the tournament and sticked around team urameshi. In school is considered as a charismatic leader, one of the reasons why he rivaled Yusuke. Control. Saw him as a threat.

Toguro was not traditional at all. he's actually much more strategy oriented if you look at his past. he is also based off of Arnold Schwarzenegger who is an INTJ. another good example of an INTJ similar to Toguro is Lance Armstrong

ISTPs can be great planners, it's just not their home territory like it is for INTJs.

that has more to do with being E7 (Koenma and Jim Carey)

I can't really answer this one

Schwarzenegger is an INTJ, but he's usually playing solo. Toguro is always with people. He's energized by that and makes his presence felt. Same with Lance armstrong. Solo. He also isn't a fighter, he's a weight lifter and a politician. Same with armstrong. Cyclist. Planning and execution, nothing that requires improvisation such as fighting. Toguro might have a lot in common with him, but he has a strong value system. He kicked his brother off the stadium for mocking genkai and in the manga for suggesting cheating. He's a bad guy but lives fiercely according to his code. Series of other "field" decisions he made that were according to his code, nothing like an INTJ would make (according to what is expedient).
Togurou could be an ENTJ, but I think he's more of an ESTJ type of person.

How about Yoko. Why INTJ?
And kurama, why INFP? Kurama is a bit sociable and gregarious as well, he's an extremely popular kid at his school. Generally interested in people and able to attract/comfort them.

none of what you said had anything to do about being I/E except for being energized by people which he only is because he is a 3.

He doesnt do any long term planning and leads as a barbarian instead of having back up plans. Estj, not intjs. Hes also cold as fuck, intjs have Fe. Just because you think every villain is an intj doesnt make it so. And wether they are type 3 or not, intj leisure time is solo.

- no they don't, INTJs are Ni>Te>Fi>Se. I suggest you research cognitive functions more
- we don't know how he spends his leisure time
- I don't think every villain is INTJ (actually I love INTJs), I know several villains who are NFs and ESTPs

Toguro always looks directly at everyone. Se. Doesnt have that unnatentive look characteristic of intuitives. He spends his leisure time hanging out with his team, as seen in the dark tourney.

I meant fi. I have done research. :)
- oh, I thought you were one of those idiots who thinks that the auxilary, tertiary and inferior are all the opposite expression of the dominant (for instance, ENTJ would be TeNiSiFi and INTJ would be NiTeFeSe) glad you're not lol
- having Fi does not mean one can't be cold. Fi deals with personal values, convictions, self knowledge, etc, it can be very cold, especially in the Tertiary position of an IxTJ
- you don't see his plans because he is a 3, but he definitely has them. you don't become the strongest human fighter in the world, win the dark tournament and gain demonic powers without plans =)

Intjs are expedient as opposed to enforcers of their values. Toguro was an enforcer. He was the muscle, his brother the brain. A fair share of politicians rises to the top without knowing jack shit and by having a brain. Some even become presidents of the united states.

I would disagree with that. I think politicians just pretend to be stupid

External brain i mean. Bush - Rove relation. Estps are overrepresented in politics due to their tactical geniosity. They may be smart but they are not future oriented.

I actually think George Bush is an ?NTJ based on earlier interviews I've seen of him (he is intelligent, well spoken, strategic and does not display any of the idiotic tendencies he slaps onto his personality later in life)

Was that before or after he was a frat boy / athlete in university? I don't see too many INTJs in it. I acknowledge he could be an ENTJ, but it is much more likely that he was an ESTJ given his choice of course and the books he read - all feeding him concrete data to help policy. Slapping ESTP in any politician you know will increase your odds of success, though, for a very good reason.
