    Default Captain Jean-Luc Picard

    `

    This thread might be useless, I know there is a type the cast of Star Trek:TNG thread, but... besides Deanna Troi, Captain Jean-Luc Picard deserves a thread of his own, actually, I think his character is far more complex than Troi's, even though I've always really liked her.

    Now, here's the question....


    So, is it pretty unanimous that Picard was an INTJ??!?

    I've loved this show ever since I was a kid, and was fortunate enough to watch two reruns on SyFy, last night!

    And, AND....


    I've had a major crush on Picard since I was a girl, seriously!

    He was the father figure I never had, a model for the ideal man, he was perfect.

    Seriously, is he ever wrong?!!??

    Depicted as deeply moral, highly logical and cerebral, Picard is a master of diplomacy and debate who resolves seemingly intractable issues between multiple parties. Though such resolutions are usually peaceful, Picard is also shown utilizing his remarkable tactical cunning in situations when it is required.
    ^I agree with the above.



    Your thoughts?

    Or, are you too young to even care or know about Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

    I occasionally see people type him as ENTJ or INFJ, but he strikes me as a blatant example of an INTJ. He spends the majority of his time reading alone, and appears very fulfilled with this arrangement. As for T versus F, he isn't a very emotional man, and consistently shows objectivity rather than subjectivity. Additionally, while he does show signs of Fe (though they seem to be more in the vein of pragmatic Te appearing as an Fe desire to maintain peace), he does not show an ounce of Ti.

    I agree with both of you. Picard is an obvious INTJ if there ever was one.

    Hmm, what an awesome INTJ archetype!!!

    Though it is true that he isn't an emotional man, he is highly moral, and he cares about doing Right, and Justice, but in the purest sense.

    Also, he seems almost entirely devoid of ego!

    I think it is his humility plus his wisdom that I find so attractive, so evolved.

    Le sigh, of course such a great man can only be of fiction.

    If he is, in fact, an INTJ, it does show you what maturity can do for the INTJ, there's nothing worse than egomaniacal immature INTJ, nothing, eww.

    SS ***hugs*** ZOMG! Another Captain Jean-Luc Picard fan. Seriously, that guy made the show!!!!! And I, too, had a little girl crush on him. I can only imagine that other people mistype him because he was a very great captain with an intuitive edge, but could lead like nobody's business. They also mistake his passion about justice for 'feeling.' Well, it is feeling, but it is not a primary place.

    Take a look at how Troi counsels him, and what makes her such a good counselor for him (other than her 'feeling counterpart')? She's an XNFP, the perfect counterpart to an INTJ. When he's Ni-Fi-ing, she comes in and stops the loop so to speak (these are moments when she's pretty strict with him, if I recall - it's been a while). And when he's trying to make a particular decision, he needs her because she has a more developed use of the Ne/Fi combination he needs....His Fi comes out particularly strong in the Borg situations as well as the deal with the Cardassians (when he would not break).

    Also, how someone is 'on-duty' does not always represent how one is truly like.

    The ONLY possible alternative for Picard would be ISTJ.

    I wasn't into TNG, but now I am close to some big Picard fans and from watching the reruns on SyFy I am inclined to agree with what has been posted. Especially the following:

    Patrick Stewart was knighted last year. I know that Picard fans were really happy.

    He couldn't be anything other than INTJ. I recently started re-watching TNG and it's pretty clear he's a non-sociopathic, morally upright INTJ.

    He was a hero of mine growing up, Him and Data... And Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap.

    Now those were TV shows.
