MBTI®: 10 Marvel Superheroes Who Are ENTJs
Superheroes generally prove their mettle on the field of battle. But maybe some of them want to be sure they're the right fit. It takes more than just ability; they need the right personality for the rigors of the job. One way for them to see if they're a good fit is by taking The Myers-Briggs® personality test.

For a lot of heroes, it's enough to be a willing defender of truth and justice. But some might be more suited to lead. If their test result was for the ENTJ personality type, then they're likely good leaders. Here are ten Marvel superheroes who have proven to be ENTJs.
10 Black Bolt
Black Bolt is one of the heroes on this list who is more than just the leader of a team, he's the leader of a people. Black Bolt became the ruler of the Inhumans when he was still a pretty young guy, just twenty, but he has the innate qualities necessary to be a leader.
His confidence and charisma helped win over those who might have doubted whether he could lead his people through their discovery by the human race and the many trials and tribulations that followed.
9 Mister Fantastic
Reed Richards likely spans a few different types on The Myers-Briggs® spectrum. He's certainly an adventurous (ISFP) and entrepreneurial (ESTP) but his best quality is his ability to lead. As the head of the Fantastic Four, he has captained his team and extended family through decades of challenges that few other people would be able to weather. First, there was the traumatic transformation from scientists to superheroes.
He also rallied them and the world against one threat after another, including Doctor Doom and of course the world-threatening Galactus.
Cyclops has been the field captain of the X-Men, with a few breaks, since the beginning of the team. He was selected for a number of reasons, including his ability to manage difficult situations. He's seen his fair share of those over the years, including his girlfriend turning evil, and then he turned evil, and both of them died at least a couple of times, but they got better.
Managing life and death is another key quality for a leader fighting against those willing to do anything and Cyclops can do it.
7 Captain Marvel
Carol Danvers has the power, charisma, and experience to be a natural leader. And like all good leaders, she views failure as educational. Many people suffer defeats great and small, and they're down for the count.

Getting back off the mat is a huge necessity for any leader, especially one rallying superheroes against overwhelming odds. Captain Marvel got knocked down her entire life, from her years in the Air Force to the Star Force and of course being absorbed into Rogue. She never quit.
6 Iron Man
A key element of being a good leader is the ability to evolve. There is perhaps no better example of character growth in Marvel and certainly the MCU than Tony Stark.
Initially a self-serving and maybe just a little narcissistic, Stark transforms over the course of his journey into the heroic defender Iron Man and a leader of the Avengers. This arc was wonderfully concluded with his moving sacrifice to save the universe at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
5 Professor X
Leaders must have great compassion and empathy if they're going to be somebody others can identify with. Professor X uses his natural sense of people and his practical assets to provide mutantkind a place and a voice in the world.
A downside some ENTJs might run into though is a sense of being a bit ruthless. While Charles Xavier has demonstrated extraordinary compassion, as recent events attest, there comes a point in which some may stop reacting and start acting.
There are pros and cons to being a natural leader. Qualities like confidence, charisma, and efficiency all serve to galvanize others. For ENTJs, the pitfalls of being this type include being cold and arrogant. Namor falls on this side of the equation.
Wavering between hero and villain, with his focus on that of Atlantis and then his own personal goals (his single-minded pursuit of the Invisible Woman comes to mind), Namor is a leader who doesn't always consider others.
3 Black Panther
Like Namor, Black Panther is more than just the leader of a team; he's the leader of a nation. Wakandans know how strong a leader T'Challa is by virtue of his ability to multi-task. Not only does he keep their interests at heart, but he's also able to do it while defending the rest of the world.
RELATED: Black Panther Vs The X-Men: 5 Reasons Why Wakanda Could Win A War With Krakoa (& 5 Why It Can’t)
Black Panther has been able to utilize his intelligence, strength, and natural ability to lead for Wakanda, the world, and the galaxy. A great leader is a tired leader, but no one will ever see it from him.
Great leaders know how to sacrifice. Ororo Munroe has done it time and again. She's lost her powers, her position as leader of the X-Men, and dear friends and allies, but she's never flinched from staying true to what she believes is right.
During Avengers vs. X-Men, Storm sided with the X-Men to prevent mass violence from breaking out, while her then-husband Black Panther chooses the Avengers. He annuls their marriage, breaking her heart, but she did what she felt was right.
1 Captain America
An essential quality in any good leader is never giving up. ENTJ-types are strong-willed, to say the least. This fits Captain America to a tee. Perhaps the quintessential leader among the entire roster of Marvel superheroes, his dedication, bravery, and tenacity throughout the years have inspired countless others.
Steve Rogers has led the Avengers into battle and against incalculable odds many times. Whether it's fighting the Nazis in World War II, HYDRA, or Thanos, he does whatever it takes.

MCU Characters Who Share Your MBTI® Type
For over ten years, audiences have followed the adventures of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yes, the comic book action and interwoven stories are part of the charm, but the real selling points of this franchise are its relatable heroes. With the vast array of characters, anyone can find a hero they identify with. Kevin Feige and his team have done an incredible job bringing these heroes to life in an empathetic way.
RELATED: The 10 Best MCU Movies (According To Metacritic)
One of the best ways to understand a character's archetype and psychology is by applying the Myers-Briggs® personalities. This specified classification is often used to surmise one's social tendencies and ticks.
Updated on April 10th, 2021 by Kristen Palamara: There are countless well-developed characters, heroes and villains and everything in between, who appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and all of them have unique personalities that are developed during the dozens of movies already in the MCU alongside several shows set to be released on Disney+ like WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Since each character has a distinct personality, and most of them have had several appearances to flesh out their strengths and weaknesses, it's easy to match them with their corresponding MBTI® personality type and audiences can connect with them even further.
15 Star-Lord - ESFP
Star-Lord has a fun-loving nature in any scene he's in and is most similar to the ESFP personality type. In his introduction scene in Guardians of the Galaxy he breaks into song and dance while venturing into the unknown, which is a classic ESFP move.
ESFP personalities are social extroverts, entertainers, typically focused on personal aesthetics, can be a little unfocused at times, and can become easily bored, which Peter Quill fits all of these traits perfectly.
14 Ant-Man - ESFJ
Ant-Man is a constant source of positive energy on the Avengers and he's optimistic even in the darkest of times like when he was one of the only ones with hope after the snap and his time in the quantum realm. Scott Lang is a character who is able to encourage others and be supportive while always being able to make others, including himself, laugh.
Scott is also a loyal and heartwarming character as he's loyal to the Avengers and has a special bond with his daughter Cassie although sometimes he can be a little too selfless but he always has his heart in the right place. All of Scott's strengths and weaknesses as a character are similar to the ESFJ personality type.
13 Falcon - ISFP
Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, is a charming character who quickly gets along with both Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff in Captain America: Winter Soldierand is building a relationship with Bucky Barnes in Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Sam is a passionate character who does what he thinks is right and is empathetic toward others as he is always ready to jump into the fray to help. Sam's an independent and curious person as well and all of these traits are similar to the ISFP personality type.
12 Winter Soldier - ISFJ
Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier, is introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger as a loyal and hard-working character who has unending support for his best friend Steve Rogers. He's imaginative and interested in science while also being a strong defender of what's right when he goes to fight in World War II.
Bucky's an empathetic character, not including the years when he was brainwashed by Hydra, while also being humble and more introverted making all of Bucky's traits similar to the ISFJ personality type.
11 Vision - ISTJ
Vision is very similar to the ISTJ personality portraying most all of the ISTJ strengths and weaknesses on screen in the MCU and in the Disney+ series WandaVision. He's an honest and direct character who is calm and practical but sometimes, near the beginning of his character arc, was a little insensitive.
He's a very responsible, logical, and dutiful character who is capable of almost anything from his beginnings as JARVIS to his humanoid form as Vision.
10 Thor - ESTP
Thor, God of Thunder and Space Frat-Bro, is full of versatility and humor. This son of Asgard is a strong-willed leader who loves to tackle problems head-on. Though he is assertive, Thor still likes to let loose and have fun, though occasionally at his downfall. Out of all the types, Thor is clearly an ESTP.
ESTPs are classified as energetic problem solvers. They love addressing problems immediately and with as broad a scope as possible. Sometimes though, the tendency towards immediate action can lead to a narrower and less detail-oriented approach. Luckily, their good-natured humor and natural likability overcome their blind enthusiasm.
9 Captain Marvel - ISFP
Carol Danvers might be new to the MCU, but there is no denying her immediate impact (just ask that poor Blockbuster Video). Fans around the world immediately identified with this new galactic hero. When applying the MBTI®, Captain Marvel fits right into the ISFP type.
RELATED: 10 LGBTQ Marvel Heroes That Deserve Their Own Movie
ISFPs are compassionate and concrete, often holding a strong moral compass. Carol has a strong will, and her values are incredibly important to her. Although she is loyal to the Kree, she does not sacrifice her beliefs for them. ISFPs hate having their personal freedoms and emotions limited, mirrored in Carol's journey from Kree Pawn to an independent hero.
8 Scarlet Witch - INFP
Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, is a hard character to place. Much of this is due to her reserved and complex tendencies. Because of this, no better type exists for her than INFP. Full of compassion for others, it was the clear archetype for a character like Wanda.
This is not to say that Wanda is weak. Instead, Wanda is selective as to when she chooses to be vulnerable. There are few characters apart from Vision who she chooses to open up with. INFPs are very empathetic, but choose when to express it.
7 Groot - INFJ
Everyone loves this friendly giant, Groot, and the baby version of him as well. Groot might be a being of few words, but his gentle demeanor and peaceful nature screams INFJ.
INFJs are identified by their insightful, private, and loyal personalities. Groot is that and more. He is a serene being who is dutiful to those he loves. He is not a fan of conflict, loudness, or disorder, and just wants everyone to get along. If INFJs had a motto, it'd be "We are Groot".
6 Black Panther - INTJ
T'Challa is a character who has a lot on his shoulders. Running a kingdom, losing his dad, and learning that his family covered up a murder and abandonment plot are just a few of the things he's handling in Black Panther. Only someone calm, cool, and collected can take all that stress.
RELATED: 8 Actors Whose Careers Were Completely Changed By The MCU
T'Challa is an INTJ and conceptual planner. INTJs face problems thoroughly, logically, and decisively. Procrastination is a major point of stress for INTJs, along with micromanaging and indecision. As the king of the most secretive and powerful nation on earth, T'Challa does not have time to second-guess or overthink.
5 Black Widow - ISTP
Myers-Briggs® characterizes an ISTP by their realism, adaptability, and adventurous nature. Black Widow's nearly pessimistic personality and spy skills make her a stand out ISTP. When the protective guise disappears, Black Widow is a relatively straightforward and blunt individual.
She does not appreciate disregarding her practicality, independence, and occasionally cynical outlook. She is an expedient and practical member of The Avengers who brings a grounded sense to even the most alien of circumstances.
4 Bruce Banner - INTP
No role fit Bruce Banner better than INTP. As a scientist and logical thinker, Banner had to go into this archetype. INTPs are some of the most ingenious types in all of Myers-Briggs®. They are analytical thinkers who apply logic and complex problem-solving to each task that comes their way.
Bruce is obviously also a character who hates a lot of disruptions and noise. He is introverted and awkward in the most endearing way possible. Though their inward view of the world can alienate them from others, their critical lens is crucial to any team's success.
3 Spider-Man - ENFP
Spider-Man is known for his carefree and fun attitude. He is full of energy all his own. Because of this, Peter Parker is the prime example of an ENFP personality type. Spidey is known to be full of life, joy, and relatability.
RELATED: 10 X-Men We’d Love To See In The MCU (And 10 That Can Be Left Behind)
ENFPs are known for looking at multiple solutions to problems and trying anything that might stick. They are not fans of detail and scrutiny, and sometimes that can lead to their downfall. But their authenticity, friendliness, and sociable personalities overcome any big-picture issues.
2 Captain America - ISFJ
Steve Rogers/Captain America is the heart of the MCU. The ultimate leader, everyone in the MCU looks up to Cap for significant decisions and guidance. With this mentor role Cap never loses sight of compassion and understanding. With all this in mind, Cap exudes the role of ISFJ.
These types are characterized by their honor, tradition, and duty. ISFJs value the collective forces for good, and the inherent power of the individual.
1 Iron Man - ENTP
Headstrong, analytical, and witty. All of these describe Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. He is a figure who invites challenge and debate but has the best intentions. Somehow arrogant in the best way, Tony is a full-blown ENTP.
This type is often seen as a devil's advocate, always inviting discourse and discussion. They want to address problems in the most creative way possible, sometimes to their disadvantage. ENTPs are intelligent beyond belief, outspoken, and full of energy. Tony lives all of these traits and more.

MBTI®: 10 Marvel Villains Who Are ENFJs
The Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) provides a range of sixteen different personality types to help people get a better understanding of who they are. One of the types, the ENFJ (Extroversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Judgment) is most commonly associated with heroes - after all, it's also known as The Protagonist type. But some villains fall under the category as well.
RELATED: MBTI®: 10 DC Villains Who Are ENFJs
Every personality type has its good and bad sides, and these 10 Marvel villains definitely all land on the bad side. Here are ten Marvel villains who fall under the ENFJ personality type.
10 MCU Mysterio
Protagonists tend to be the stars of their own stories, wanted or not, and Quentin Beck is the star of his own virtual reality show. This fact is blown up to huge and deadly effect with his MCU version, in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Beck masterminds a complicated plot involving holograms and drones to obtain a pair of high-tech glasses from Spider-Man. His fluctuating self-esteem - a key weakness of the ENFJ type - is on full display throughout the film.
9 Black Cat
ENFJ types are often naturally charismatic. Felicia Hardy definitely has charisma in spades. She skirts the line between hero and villain - a common theme of characters on this list, which suggests something - and most often uses her skills to lobby Spider-Man into something he doesn't want to do.
Black Cat acts as a bad influence in Peter Parker's life - usually - with her personal goals often running counter to his more altruistic ones. Still, she fits the bill of the type quite easily.
8 Scarlet Witch (House of M)
Scarlet Witch is normally a hero and the embodiment of the ENFJ type. She's passionate, supportive, and genuinely caring. But everyone has a bad day, and Wanda Maximoff has had a few. One of the worst is when she unilaterally decided the world would be better off without mutants.
The House of M storyline saw Scarlet Witch use her powers to a frightening degree, altering reality to diminish mutants to all but a handful. The worst tendencies of the type came out in this terrible moment.
7 Dark Phoenix
Jean Grey is arguably a Protagonist type. Like Scarlet Witch, she's very caring, supportive, and operates well at any level of the team hierarchy, whether that's as a soldier or a leader. So it makes sense her evil incarnation, the Dark Phoenix, would be an ENFJ as well.
RELATED: MBTI®: 10 Marvel Superheroes Who Are ISFPs
As the Dark Phoenix, Jean Grey wasn't particularly interested in being a leader. She put her end goals - power and well, just more power - ahead of everyone and everything else, forcing a deadly confrontation that left Jean dead. Well. Not really.
6 Cyclops (Phoenix)
Another hero who broke bad on the Phoenix side of things (really - is it any good at all? Ok, sometimes) is Cyclops. Cyclops is a natural-born leader, an ideal choice to head up the X-Men with his charisma, experience, and commitment to the cause.
All of those things make him a good ENFJ candidate, but also make him prone to its downsides. With the power of the Phoenix, Cyclops let out some of the anger that had built up as a result of his nagging insecurity and overinflated sense of self.
Dormammu is the greatest villain of Doctor Strange, for good reason. Dormammu is the ruler of the Dark Dimension, his charisma and authoritarian personality inflicting cosmic levels of damage.
His powers are kind of insane - suffice to say they're enough to conquer other dimensions - and his power has certainly gone to his head. Self-deluded and myopically concerned with only acquiring more power and dimensional territory, Dormammu is an ENFJ gone bad.
4 MCU Thanos
There's little difference between the comic and screen Thanos in terms of their apocalyptic intent, but their motivations are slightly different. Comic book Thanos just wants to impress a girl (ok, she is the living incarnation of Death), whereas the MCU Thanos wants to eliminate half of all life because he thought it was the only solution to his planet's woes, and he was ignored.
That rejection more than anything else drives Thanos, regardless of what he states. His narcissistic crusade becomes megalomania by the end and results in an absolute catastrophe for the entire universe.
3 Netflix Madame Gao
One of the downsides of an ENFJ-type personality is that persuasion can turn into manipulation. Charisma becomes something more sinister. That's the case with Madame Gao, who turned out to be a major cog in the criminal wheel of The Hand in the Marvel Netflix series.
RELATED: MBTI®: 10 Marvel Superheroes Who Are ENTJs
Madame Gao seems old, frail, and unassuming, but peel the layers back and she's the puppeteer behind numerous criminal enterprises around the world. She has also been shown to hold some pretty serious grudges and has carried out vendettas against her enemies.
2 MCU Hela
The MCU version of classic Thor villain Hela really amps up the character's conceitedness. After being imprisoned for a seriously long time thanks to her past misdeeds, the first thing she does when she's free is to go to Asgard and set up shop as queen.
She demands loyalty, under pain of death, and goes about destroying everything and everyone that doesn't revolve around her. She is convinced the story of Asgard is really her story - and sadly, in some ways, she was right. But still too much murder.
Both the screen and comic book versions of the Asgardian trickster are very proud of themselves. Somewhat like Hela, Loki imagines that he is the star of the show, but it's a different show than the one going on.
A master manipulator and of course a legendary trickster, he's able to fool others - and himself - of whatever reality he wants to present. The result is an ongoing battle between brothers, gods, men, and Loki's own conscience, which occasionally surfaces.

Captain Marvel: A Passionate Personality (Avengers Personality Series)
“Control your impulses.”Yon-Rogg to Carol Danvers (a.k.a. Vers) during training
So, Marvel likes to have us sit through the end credits of their movies to receive the cinematic crumbs that hint at the future direction of our Avengers heroes. These hints then encourage the Internet to smolder endlessly with speculation until the next film. Not a bad marketing device.
The crumb at the end of Infinity War has Nick Fury sending a signal with a clunky pager-like device as chaos from “the Snap” envelops New York City. Just in time, too... because, poof. Nick is gone. Maria Hill is already dust. But the Captain Marvel symbol glows on the device’s tiny screen, inviting our hero to be a key player in the follow-up movie. And so here we are, on the eve of Endgame, talking about Carol Danvers.
Since Captain Marvel is still in theaters as of this writing, we’ll avoid spoilers – mostly. At least, we won’t reveal any more than the trailers do. That will be easy, though, since we’re discussing Carol Danvers’s personality type. The film reveals much about her basic ways of thinking and acting long before many of the plot twists occur.
We believe that Captain Marvel has an Assertive Entertainer (ESFP-A) personality type. We often talk about Explorers as individuals who are so flexible that they “think on their feet” when finding solutions. They are people of action, and that can truly be said of Carol Danvers.
Danvers is an outgoing team player. Her interaction with the Kree team and flashbacks to desert bars and flyboy – that is, flygirl – camaraderie on Earth demonstrate her Extraverted personality from the beginning.
Throughout the film, we get only a gregarious vibe from her. While capable of working on her own when necessary – and it’s often necessary (see the Prospecting section below) – she appears to need people and to gather energy from them. When she can’t sleep, she finds her trainer for a workout session rather than hanging out alone.
Fury: Okay, your turn. Prove you’re not a Skrull [shape-shifter].
[Danvers destroys the bar’s jukebox with rays from her hands.]
Fury: And how is that supposed to prove to me you’re not a Skrull?
Danvers: That’s a photon blast.
Danvers: A Skrull cannot do that.
While Carol Danvers struggles with identity issues, she doesn’t spend a lot of time navel-gazing over them. When Fury asks for proof that she’s not a shape-shifter in the dialogue above, she doesn’t come up with a wordy argument. She acts. “See. There. I did that,” could be the Observant personality type’s mantra.
While she may well have ideological underpinnings for what she does, she’s mostly about finding concrete solutions to concrete problems. Not only does she not present Fury with a conceptual argument, but she might actually need to work on her logic a little. This brings us to the next personality trait.
Her Kree trainer and leader, Yon-Rogg, reinforces for us that this is the personality trait through which Danvers makes most of her decisions. He cajoles her throughout the film to rely less on her feelings. It’s a repeated theme.
She is reactive, not in the Turbulent sense (see the Assertive section below), but in the sense that she responds to situations according to what her feelings advise. These will fluctuate, as emotions do. Danvers is not unintelligent. She just prefers to lean on emotions as a filter to decide things – perhaps, at times, subordinating coldly rational decision-making to her gut instinct.
The Prospecting personality trait is the secret sauce that, when combined with the Observant trait, makes all Explorers what they are. Danvers improvises constantly. She is always looking for the advantage, thus showing her flexible Explorer nature. She frequently pushes beyond standards and conformity while looking for novel ways to respond to her unique life.
While Danvers might be reactive, it can easily be argued that this isn’t because she’s insecure. She’s confident to the point of being headstrong. Link her Prospecting nonconformity with her Assertive confidence, and you have someone who makes her own way. As an Assertive Entertainer personality, she is unlikely to follow a path others make. She deals skillfully with gargantuan stressors and doesn’t second-guess herself or indulge in regret for long.
When typing fictional characters here at 16Personalities, the type we present is determined only by what we’ve seen of the character’s behavior and actions in the movies or books in which they appear. Ultimately, they are fictional and are used as a way to help others better understand aspects of personality type.
This personality typing is based on the character as portrayed in Marvel’s Captain Marvel movie released in 2019.
So, will Captain Marvel play a pivotal role in the defeat of Thanos? We shall see. But for the most part, if you want to accomplish something that’s challenging, you could do worse than a photon-blasting Entertainer who happens to fly.

Many of us dream of becoming superheroes. Questions like, “If you could pick any superpower what would it be?” or “Which superhero would you be in real life?” can entertain us for hours.
While we might not be getting superpowers any time soon, we all have things in common with superpowered characters. There are characters from the Marvel universe of just about every personality type, and there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find at least one that you relate to.
Full disclosure: I’m not much of a comic book reader myself (and the ones I do read are all Star Wars), so these typings are based almost exclusively on the characters as portrayed in the movies. For some characters, I also reference what other type enthusiasts who have read the comics have to say.

ENFJ – Charles Xavier/Professor X
I’m pretty sure all NF types could find Professor X relatable for his idealism and his drive to help others, but in the film versions at least I type him as an ENFJ. Especially as a young man, Charles is very outgoing and friendly in social situations and prioritizes others’ well-being. He’s also more live-in-the-moment than the introverted NFs, partly a result of having Extroverted Sensing as his tertiary function.
In many ways, Xavier’s superpower is an extension of how NFJ minds naturally work. Extroverted Feeling is often linked to an ability to feel others’ emotions and Introverted Intuition works like advanced pattern-recognition software. Put those two together, and it’s almost like INFJs and ENFJs can read minds.
You might also relate to Nakia.

ENTJ – Max Eisenhardt/Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto
I didn’t want to put villains on this list, but I think you can make a good case for Magneto as an anti-hero and he’s a great example of an ENTJ. An intensely logical visionary and inspiring leader, Magneto is driven by a vision of a future that’s better for people like him.
One of the markers of Thinking types is that they make decisions impersonally. While Magneto is clearly motivated to help people in his own way, he is also dispassionate enough to make tough calls to forward his cause. He’s also an Intuitive, which supports his Thinking side to make him a formidable strategist able to predict his enemy’s moves and plan how to bring them down.
You might also relate to Peggy Carter and Nick Fury.
INFJ – Susan Storm/Invisible Woman
INFJ personality types tend to avoid the limelight, and it makes sense that we’d relate to one of the superheroes capable of turning invisible. Susan Storm is a warm, compassionate character who cares deeply about the people around her. She’s capable of seeing the big picture as well as of seeing things from other’s perspectives, and she uses those talents to help hold her team together.
Even though INFJs are great at connecting with others and care deeply about people, we’re also masters at putting up barriers that keep others from getting too close. This mirrors the Invisible Woman’s other superpower, which she uses in creative ways as a defensive and protective tool.
You might also relate to Loki, Jean Gray, and Groot.

Many INTJs in fiction find themselves cast as villains, but in the Marvel universe we have a few examples of them playing heroes. Doctor Stephen Strange is one example of an INTJ who is incredibly confident in his role and his abilities as a surgeon and, eventually, as a sorcerer. I went with INTJ because I think Stephen’s drive to understand, learn, and explore possibilities indicates Introverted Intuition is his favorite function even though we get to see a lot of his Extroverted Thinking side.
When his accident removes everything he staked his identity on, we get to see a great example of an INTJ’s Extroverted Sensing stress response as he becomes obsessed with external data and develops an adversarial attitude toward the outer world. We also see glimpses of his tertiary Introverted Feeling when he acts based on his internal values.

ENFP – Peter Parker/Spiderman
I had the hardest time finding an ENFP for this post. I’m still not convinced Spider Man qualifies but I do know of ENFPs who see him as a very relatable character, especially as portrayed by Tom Holland in the MCU films.
ENFPs tend to be intense, clever, lovable, and talkative. Especially when in the Spidey suit, the MCU version of Peter has a classic ENFP-esque personality, cracking jokes during the fights and suggesting it’d be so much nicer if we all stopped fighting and became friends.
You might also relate to Daisy Johnson/Quake.
ENTP – Tony Stark/Ironman
Few fictional characters represent a specific type more perfectly than Tony Stark does for ENTPs. The way Tony’s mind processes new information and arrives at decisions is a great example of ENTP mental functions.
Their dominant Extroverted Intuition helps them bounce from one idea to the next quickly and experiment with different possibilities. Auxiliary Introverted Thinking focuses on the purest, most accurate form of information. Couple that with tertiary Extroverted Feeling, which is good at reading other people, and you get the perfect type for an innovative, charismatic genius.
You might also relate to Shuri.
INFP – Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch
If any superhero would have an ability to manipulate reality, I think it would be an NFP. Extroverted Intuition is all about exploring the outer world, generating possibilities in it, and seeing how it can be manipulated. Wanda’s character isn’t all that well-developed in the Marvel movies, but it seems to me she’s an INFP and I’ve read that the comic version is as well.
Like many INFPs, Wanda is a creative and unique individual with strong personal values. She has the sort of perspective needed to understand other people no matter how strange they are. She uses her personality traits and her superpowers to stand up for what she thinks is right and to connect with others who share her values.
You might also relate to Mantis.
INTP – Bruce Banner/The Hulk
Absent-minded professor is one of the most common INTP stereotypes, and Bruce Banner is a great fictional example. Like many INTPs, Dr. Banner is an introspective troubleshooter who follows an internal set of rules, which he refines based on new information and experiences. He’s not so tied to tradition, scientific or social, that he isn’t willing to step outside the rules in order to come up with innovative solutions and inventions.
I find it fitting that an INTP’s less-developed function that shows up when under stress is Extroverted Feeling. Personality Hacker calls our inferior function the “3-year-old” process because it’s not very mature, and it’s interesting to think of The Hulk as an expression of Bruce’s unexpressed Extroverted Feeling side.
You might also relate to Jessica Jones, Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Peter Parker/Spiderman.
ESFJ – Ben Grimm/The Thing
Even with an alter-ego who’s an incredibly strong superhero, Ben Grimm is still one of the sweetest and most trustworthy characters out there. He has an SJ type’s commitment to duty, family, and protecting others, providing a great example of why David Keirsey called them Guardian types.
Like other FJ types, Ben is committed to maintaining harmony within groups (which helps explain why he puts up with Johnny so well and why he keeps forgiving Reed over and over again). ESFJs are often stereotyped as “mom characters,” so it’s not all that surprising to see him switch between cooking dinner in an apron to “it’s clobbering time” if anyone needs defending.
You might also relate to King T’Chaka and Foggy Nelson.
ESTJ – Nick Fury
It was really hard for me to pick between ESTJ and ENTJ for Nick Fury, but I think the film version at least leans a bit more toward Sensing. Either way, Fury leads with a strong Extroverted Thinking function and he’s good at getting the job done efficiently. He has zero patience for people who make stupid decisions, and he has cultivated the power needed to go around them.
Fury is motivated to make the world a safer place, even if he has to do that in ways that upset other people. He is highly pragmatic and makes decisions based on what he has learned in the past, which is typical of ESTJs. He’s also concerned with the big picture and future security, which might be more typical of N-types but could be related to an ESTJ’s tertiary Extroverted Intuition.
You might also relate to Odin.
ISFJ – Steve Rogers/Captain America
Like many ISFJs, Steve starts out wanting to work within established authority structures. Again and again, he aligns himself on the side of law and order. It’s only when the authority structures fail to match what he knows is right that Steve stands up against them. He’s invested in making social systems work, but only so long as they’re helping people. He has a strong sense of right and wrong, and he refuses to compromise when it comes to doing what’s right.
I also think ISFJs will identify with the hints we see of Steve’s sense of humor and his occasional puzzlement when he’s looking at the world around him. His quirks fit in well with what Isabel Meyers said about how an ISFJ’s view on the world “may be absurd, irreverent, touching, or hilarious, but never predictable because their way of sensing life is intensely individual” (Gifts Differing, p. 103).
You might also relate to Edwin Jarvis.
ISTJ – Okoye
Okoye is an intensely loyal, no-nonsense character deeply motivated by what she believes is right. In the film Black Panther, we see Okoye as a fierce warrior who is firmly rooted in her people’s traditions. Like other SJ heroes, she acts to protect people and to support systems that she believes in.
As a Thinking type, the decisions she makes are primarily based on impersonal criteria (to the point that she states she could kill her husband “without question” for betraying Wakanda). With her tertiary Introverted Feeling, she softens this Thinking side just a bit by also aligning her decisions with what she firmly feels is right rather than blindly following the letter of the law.
You might also relate to Nebula and Pepper Potts.
ESFP – Sam Wilson/Falcon
It might be a bit controversial to type Sam Wilson as an ESFP because he doesn’t quite fit the stereotype of the fun-loving performer. However, the more I think about it the more I think he’s a great example of a healthy and emotionally stable ESFP. Like other SP types, Sam is quick to adapt to the changing, unpredictable realities of the present moment (the neuroscience behind this is really cool—brain scans show that Extroverted Sensing types’ brains fire in a “tennis hop” pattern that lets them react quickly).
We also get to see quite a bit of his other extroverted function, an ESFP’s tertiary Extroverted Thinking. He relies on it quite a bit (possibly more than the typical ESFP), effortlessly blending his Sensing and Thinking sides to deal with reality straightforwardly and efficiently. Thinking isn’t what he bases his decisions on, though. That’s Introverted Feeling, which prompts him to stick with what he believes is right regardless of what other people say.
You might also relate to Peter Quill/Star Lord, Johnny Storm/Human Torch, and Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.
ESTP – Thor
I love Thor’s character development in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Early on, he’s defined 100% by Extroverted Sensing traits such as impressive physical skills, a live-in-the-moment focus, and a disregard of future concerns. Then, as the films continue, he learns to balance that with auxiliary Introverted Thinking, becoming better at analyzing his own actions and making strategic decisions.
He also learns to use his tertiary Extroverted Feeling to connect with other people and (to a certain extent at least) see things from their perspective. We even get to see him spiral into the “grip” of his inferior Introverted Intuition when under extreme stress. ESTPs tend to bounce back quickly from grip experiences, but until they do many withdraw, feel overwhelmed and confused about the future, and start to act paranoid and irritable like Thor does in Endgame.
You might also relate to James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes and Howard Stark.
ISFP – Scott Lang/Ant-Man
Like many ISP action heroes, Scott Lang excels at coordinating sensory details and using his past experience and knowledge to tackle new problems. He possesses the hands-on skills typically shared by SP types, such as the ability to burgle houses in impressive fashion even before having the Ant-Man suit. He’s also trained as an electrical engineer and we see him doing skilled hands-on work throughout the film.
Unlike TP types, Scott tends to make decisions based on what he feels is right rather than on logical, impersonal reasoning. He’s not at all hesitant to share or talk about feelings, though since that side of his personality is introverted he’s not always very in-tune with how others will respond.
You might also relate to T’Challa/Black Panther.
ISTP – Natasha Romanova
It can be hard to separate which parts of Natasha’s personality come from her Black Widow training and which from her psychological type. Still, it seems to me that dominant Introverted Thinking and auxiliary Extroverted Sensing are the functions on display in her instinctive ability to make logical, in-the-moment decisions and take decisive tactical action.
Like many other ISTPS, Natasha has developed a particular skill set that she’s insanely good at. She also uses those skills based on a very personal code; one that doesn’t always make sense to other people but which she sticks to regardless of their opinions.
You might also relate to Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Logan/Wolverine.
