just another random thought. which mbti types do you think would handle best in a zombie apocalypse. either which combination, or just what type would be the best survivor. i know everyone is different even if they have the same type, but just generalize a bit, or just base decisions on the similarities within each type. should be fun

INTJ is the best type, regardless of the situation.
Correct. INTJs are übermensch and possibly gods.

I am tired of zombies. They are everywhere nowadays.

Can the new fad be pirates ?
or skeletons?



Skeletons are fun.

@Hapalo, I think we'll be tortured with zombies at least until december. After I hope for pirates too. Or maybe mad robots?

ISTP..
Watch Walking Dead?
Daryl Dixon..

Cool and detached. No illusions about life. Pragmatic and multi skilled.. Not squeamish.
Enough humanity that every group would need one. But of course a person's physical shape would play a very big role in who survives.
If you can't run for more than 6 seconds without being winded, what matter is your type then?

This. Also, I'm assuming the OP meant which type, by itself/themselves would be the best. Reality is, a large group like on Walking Dead would need an array of different types. Several STP types would be good for defense purposes, some NF types would be good to keep the humanity aspect intact, an INTJ to rip Rick's plans to shreds in a convincing manner, not just "you are wrong bro" like Shane did, and some STJs to keep watch on the premises. Also an NT or two like Glenn would be useful for strategy, like he did in the Vatos episode and others.

I think Glenn is ISFP:

Glenn is keenly aware of the extreme danger of his scavenging missions, but because of his youth, he is willing to take the risk. He used to deliver pizzas for a living, and his knowledge of every shortcut in town proves extremely useful to the group's scavenging needs.
Young and resourceful, Glenn thinks on his feet and shows great compassion and humanity. Despite all the horrors he has seen, he maintains a youthful enthusiasm for life and its unexpected pleasures. He is an integral part of the camp, showing surprising depth and emotion when the group experiences a devastating tragedy.
Hershel has unlimited ammo, so he's the best type to be.

Not possible. He put reasoning and rationality in front of his romance with Maggie for quite a while. He is an NT in love. INTP because he doesn't care to interfere with anybody unless he can utilize his intellect to help others.

no kidding, he shot his shotgun about 20 times without reloading.

(below had nothing to do with your quote)
glen? all i can see is that he's introverted. if you want to go by his past--he's never had an intimate relationship, so if we're going to stereotype, some form of NT--again, if we're going to stereotype, since he can be rational that almost definitely means he's an T-type. i mean, in reality, it is impossible for an NT to find and harness romance, and it is impossible for an F-type to realize the situation they're in and then be realistic (but oh wait, doesn't an ISFP have a strong Se backing up that Fi, a moral compass with a practical application).... odd, very, very odd.

People can die at any moment. Does it take an INTP to realize that falling in love might not be worth it when they're probably going to be eaten soon anyway?

INTP because he doesn't care to interfere with anybody unless he can utilize his intellect to help others.
What intellect? He's just a good person. He's value-oriented and has an inferior Te-thing going on. Check out this character analysis video, centered around what the actor himself is saying about the character:

INTsomething. Objective, able to live alone, probably less sensitive to the aversion of killing zombies that were once people we knew... haha

There is actually no such thing as the best type likely to survive any post-apocalyptic world. It’s all about skills, experience, knowledge, making hard decisions, keeping sanity intact and the will to go on. In fact everything about a person will be tested. If you judge types only by their cognitive function, though, few types have much better chance than the others in surviving post-apocalyptic world. My pick will be either INTJ or ISTP. I picked these two types not because I’m related to one, my father (INTJ) and the other is myself (ISTP) but because these are two thinking type that operate in exactly the opposite manner, either ways giving them unfair advantage over the other types in case of an post-apocalyptic scenario. INTJ will likely have their own lair, an underground bunker or fortress, equipped with 24x7 surveillance, advanced weapon systems, with workers, soldiers and henchmen at his disposal. It will be an impenetrable enclosure for anyone to breach…except the xSTP types. INTJ will make cold calculated decisions without hesitation, will have vast amount of knowledge, information but his sanity will be tested which will decide if he is going to be either the “weird invisible leader” or “the archetypal villain”. ISTP on the other hand is a lone wolf, highly self-sufficient, efficient, silent, well trained, extremely experienced, well informed, skilled weapons specialist with a knack of learning about anything that he comes across at fast pace as he go on giving him an edge in improvising, anywhere, anytime with deadly precision. Not to mention the legendary ISTP stealth. He will practically be a ghost; patient, ever silent and ever observing. His will to go on will too be tested but for an ISTP traumatic experience is likely to make him stronger, more prepared making him a hardened veteran rather than hindering. It’s not for nothing that a post-apocalyptic world is called the typical “ISTP paradise”. Another thing, ISTP is very unlikely to become another man’s soldier because his extreme independence. If you see them working under, say, an INTJ or an ENTJ it’s only because the ISTP wants to momentarily engaged in that act for a specific reason. Their “commander” will never be sure where their loyalty lies and wonder if they really are under their control. Anyway, if you pitched these two types (INTJ vs ISTP) against each other each type has 50-50 chance of winning and surviving. I’ll give you an example of the battle between the two. First one is on that show ‘Breaking Bad’ where after much cat and mouse game Walter White aka ‘Heisenberg’ (INTJ) becomes unpredictable and in an impulsive act he shot Mike Ehrmantraut (ISTP) fatally wounding him. This is a case where INTJ won over ISTP. On the other hand is the case from the show ‘Walking Dead’ where Michonne (ISTP) fatally stabbed Philip Blake aka ‘the Governor’ (INTJ)...and he never saw that coming. A contrasting case where an ISTP won over INTJ in a typical ISTP fashion. In both cases, however, the ISTP characters came close to killing the INTJ characters only leaving them either at mercy, but causing irreparable damage, or because the INTJ always had a contingency plan for another contingency plan forcing ISTP to abort killing the INTJ. Either way these two types, in my opinion, are most likely to survive a post-apocalyptic world than the other types.

The STs would be the best at fighting off the zombies.

By themselves, ISTP would probably be the best to survive.
But then again, even the ISTP would be better in a good team. And IMO (I've written about this a couple of times), the best team would start up as a pretty small one.
An ESTJ to lead the team (or ENTJ, which would change the second in command, but I think this way is the best). Practical, logical, detached, has no problem to take decisions even though they might be radical and hurt other people. Will make sure they survive.
An INTJ to be second in command (ISTJ if the leader is an ENTJ). Ni is another way of planning, and while not as practical and in the moment as Si, it's important for the team to have someone with the focus on the future as an INTJ has.
An ESTP/ISTP as some kind of main fighter in the group. Same reasons as why they'd be good by themselves.

That's pretty much the core of the team, and then include other useful people as the time goes on.
