    True, but isn't the discovery process, and not the implementation process, the traditional domain of the INTP? She doesn't have plans outside of gathering data and information on her technologies. And the villain deadset on testing their theories or gather information, but without any clear plans or intentions to actually use or implement those ideas to gain power or something, isn't that the classic definition of an INTP bad guy? I mean, GLaDOS is still basically a mad scientist type. She's just also a machine.

    GLaDOS is ISFJ. She isn't learning anything and she has only a vague idea what science actually is. She's terrified of change and constantly tries to guilt Chell.

    I'm not even angry.
    I'm being so sincere right now.
    Even though you broke my heart.
    And killed me.
    And tore me to pieces.
    And threw every piece into a fire.
    As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!

    Because she's a manipulative narcissist. Wheatley is a character closer to ISFJ, but extraverted, I'd say ESFJ or ENFP (6w7?) for him and while I initially thought INTJ for GLaDOS, INTP could also be an alternative. 5w6, definetely.

    I thought Wheatlies 'reconstructioned tests' scream ENTP. You know the part in the game where the walls and everything just get chrushed together into different kinds of tests? And his humor is also so ENTP-like.

    As for GlaDOS, she really just doesn't have a typable congative function process imo, she truely is robot like in her perceptions. I don't think you can stamp any type on her and be done with it. I'd go with BINARY. :P

    But he wasn't really a designer, he just used what GLaDOS already had created. I could possibly see ENTP, just that he seemed so compliant with too much Fe. Also I thought his programmed inability to come up with good plans could be an inferior thinking-function or something. Tries to use it but fails horribly.

    Good point there. I'd probably go for ENFP then.

    Well, I feel the song half counts, and even then most of the song is about how she puts personal feelings behind pursuing scientific goals, etc.

    I have only played a little Portal 2, so I can't say much for Wheatley. Steve Merchant (Wheatley's voice actor) is pretty xNTP, though, based on the Karl Pilkington/Ricky Gervais Podcasts.

    She doesn't have any scientific goals and the song is ALL about her personal feelings. Science, to her, is a sort of busywork, where you design tests, run tests, and carefully write down the results of the tests. And when you've done that, you've done some science! You will never hear an INTP speak of science as if it were housework.

    She is a guardian of tradition -- an SJ.
