    Sweeney Todd! (Okay, maybe he isn't a REAL villain, but he did kill a large number of innocent people!)
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I'm not impressed.
    It's rather like an INTP villain.

    Both types are too damned lazy, autonomous/avoidant, and in their heads to really care enough to try to screw up reality for others.

    You let an INFP work for a supervillain organization and they'll want to make sure all the people are well taken care of. You'd find them in human resources mostly.

    You let an INTP work for a supervillain organization and they'll want to make sure all the strategies are sound and want to know how the gadgets work. You'd find them in the R&D branch or as advisor to the nasty.

    I really really really believe Iago from Othello is INFP.

    I have nothing to justify this.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I think an emotionally broken INFP could pull off being a villain.

    I could see an INTP throw a bunch of land mines into a forest and laugh as they sat sipping their beer as people blew up. Is that a villain?

    INFJs make better evil villains, especially if its what I call a poisoned INFJ. (One who has taken too much abuse in their life and now their natural instincts to help people warp into an instinct to hurt people) It would be terrifying.

    Wouldn't the best villain be the one who looks the most innocent? ei, IXFP?

    Can anyone think of any INFP villains?
    In order to make INFP the villian in a movie or book, the hero/heroine or good guy would have to be an ESTJ or an ENTJ, the anima and pedagogue respectively.

    The ESTJ is a supervisor that enforces rules with a servant mentality that is also tough and humorous. They are joiners that regulate what is considered normal and hate laziness. So the INFP would have to be shown in light of breaking some unbreakable rule, being weak like a wus when someone needs help, not joining the group, acting abnormal, and being lazy.

    The ENTJ is the general that delegates decisively is charming like a salesman but also argumentative, melodramatic, and insensitive with an icy gaze. So the INFP would have to be delegated a task and procrastinate and not do it. The INFP would be sensitive and avoid arguments and drama so this would frustrate the ENTJ. The INFP wants ethical perfection so if the ENTJ did something against their code of ethics then there may be a conflict.

    Overall, I think it would be hard to make the INFP a bad guy because the ones that hate the INFP tend to also victimize the INFP. And how could a victim be a bad guy?

    An INFP bad guy would just have to be insane and angry at the world. I can see it happening.

    Well, he isn't really 100% evil, in my stories nobody is, but as he's going to blow up the world, I can safely call him a villain.

    Gotta love this. ESTJ heroine, ISFJ sidekick, ENTJ evil king, lots of mentors of all types :-)
    An ISFJ would make a good sidekick for good or evil because they are so loyal to the person that they don't focus as much on the ethics.
