    Default MBTI Minor Arcana paralells.

    In Tarot there are exactly 12 minor arcana cards. 4 Suits and 4 subtypes.

    Wands(fire)
    Swords(air)
    Cups(earth)
    Pentacles/Disks(water)

    which are divided into

    King
    Queen
    Knight
    Page/prince(ss)

    Lets start with swords.

    Swords are associated with the element air and usually represent reason and logic. The parallel with NT is obvious.

    INTP - Prince of Swords(air/air): The element of air(reason) in its purest form. The abstract thinker detached from reality. He is often shown floating in the air.

    ENTP - Knight of Swords(air/earth): Bold, Clever and intelligent but often reckless. Many depictions show him rushing into battle but forgetting his Armour.

    INTJ - Queen of Swords(air/water): Uncompromising, calculating and solitary yet deeply passionate. Good at organizing.

    ENTJ - King of Swords(air/fire): Powerful, wise and revolutionary. A natural ruler of men.

    In my experience, cups usually corresponds to water, and pentacles to earth.

    Sorry, you are correct. It was a typo.

    interesting theory!

    Cups are associated with intuition and matters of the heart; parallels with NF. element is water.

    i had a hard time assigning types, though. here's why:

    A King is mature and masculine. He is a doer whose focus is outward on the events of life. He demonstrates authority, control and mastery in some area associated with his suit. A King's style is strong, assertive and direct. He is concerned with results and practical, how-to matters.
    seems EJ.

    A Queen is mature and feminine. She embodies the qualities of her suit, rather than acting them out. Her focus is inward, and her style, relaxed and natural. A Queen is less concerned with results than with the enjoyment of just being in the world. She is associated with feelings, relationships and self-expression.
    seems IP.

    A Knight is an immature teenager. He cannot express himself with balance. He swings wildly from one extreme to another as he tries to relate successfully to his world. A Knight is prone to excess, but he is also eager and sincere, and these qualities redeem him in our eyes. We admire his spirit and energy.
    seems EP.

    A Page is a playful child. He acts out the qualities of his suit with pleasure and abandon. His approach may not be deep, but it is easy, loose and spontaneous. He is a symbol of adventure and possibility.
    seems... well crap, seems EP too.

    they don't correspond super well. if pushed i'd probably say ENFP, INFJ, INFP, ENFJ for page, knight, queen, and king of cups.
