    Quote Originally Posted by Kirai View Post
    As for Light - I don't think he's INTJ. Rather, he strikes me as ENTJ. He's surrounded by acquaintances each time we see him go social, he's not bothered by being around people the whole day - and most of all, his initial motivation to use the DN was to cleanse humanity, act as a messiah in a way. In the manga the whole 'I want to be God!' thing came much much more later.

    Again, it makes sense for his dominant function to be T rather than N, doesn't it? Light is much to focused on changing the world around him - L is merely an obstacle (quite the opposite from L, who sees proving that Light=Kira as his goal and 'saving the world' as a side-effect. INTP and ENTJ are functionally opposite, after all.) From how I understand Ni, it would rather seek fulfillment of his goals for its own sake - or something similar to that.
    I'm really surprised you think of Light as extroverted. He doesn't seem to need or be stimulated by people in any way - he talks to others only when necessary and is very self-contained. Regarding function theory, remember that Ni is powerfully backed by Te. First comes a vision (such as a world without criminals), then comes implementation and finally, recognition as God.

    From the ENTJ Typelogic profile:

    Quote that fits them: "I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?"

    and

    TRADEMARK: - "I'm really sorry you have to die."

    Really Light, imho.
    I think these two quotes about control and ruthlessness apply equally to INTJ (only the INTJ would not necessarily verbalize them). The difference is that the ENTJ Field Marshal is far more "out there" (visibly directing many people), whereas the INTJ Mastermind prefers to exert control from behind the scenes (directing a few key people in private... or writing names in a Death Note ).

    OMG I love Death Note! Raito is so dramatic in the anime o.O I'd probably kill someone writing like that (though I guess someone would die anyway, hence 'Death Note' ) I prefer the manga, though.

    The story is so astoundingly intelligent, I just love it. It's like 'reality meets myth'. What would likely happen if we found ourselves dealing with a major crisis like the Death Note. All humans are capable of using it for dirty deeds, so, who can you trust?

    Default Death Note

    I'm not exactly sure this belongs under the heading "popular culture" but hey. Part of the fun of reading Death Note for we MBTI geeks is that many of the characters are stark examples of MBTI types.

    Yagami Light: INTJ
    L and N/Near: INTP
    Ryuk: ENTP
    Rem: ISFJ
    Amane Misa: ESFP
    Mello: ENTJ
    Yagami Soichiro: ESTJ
    Mikami Teru: INTJ
    Takada Kiyomi: INFJ

    (Note: Typing Takada, Rem and Ryuk was tough. Counterarguments welcomed.)

    Minor characters who are more of a question mark:

    Matsuda: ESFP
    Mogi and Aizawa: ESTJ

    Default Death Noteeeee!!

    All of the best characters are NTs.

    Ryuk -- ENTP
    Light -- ENTJ
    L -- INTP
    Near -- INTJ

    Obviously the the maker of this series knew about the MBTI, as they chose my favorite temperaments.

    What would the world do without us?

    REM is probably INFP.

    I <3 Death Note. Does anyone else think that Light and L figure out what the other is thinking a little too easily? Other than that it's shiny.

    I think we're all pretty much agreed that Ryuk is an EXTP.

    Yagami Light: INTJ
    L: INTP/INTJ
    Mello: ENTJ
    Misa Misa: ESFP
    Near: INTP/INTJ

    Rem is a complete idiot. Probably an ESFP like Misa Misa, or an ISFP. I also always wondered how they knew Rem was a girl. It was like just looking at her they could tell, but I couldn't. I first thought she was definitely male.

    Why were all the women in this series SO stupid? I loved this series, but that irritated me.

    Other than that, I wish it would have gone on longer. L is by far my favorite character in any series.

    I also wish that Light had had a vulnerability, or an emotion I could relate to. L appealed to me so much as a character because he did experience sadness, and he did see flaws in himself. He also felt a certain fondness for Light, and admitted that Light was the only person he'd ever come close to befriending. Light saw no flaws in himself, and I never saw an emotion other than fear and anger in him. I could not relate to him because he was never vulnerable or human. Sure, he was a psychopath, but even psychopaths have vulnerabilities. Maybe he was a megalomaniac. Anyway, he was an incomplete, unsatisfying character by the end of the series. He wasn't really human, because he never had the uncertainty or sadness that I think every human has.
