    Default The Byronic Hero

    I know personal opinions will vary. But, I want to know what 3 types most likely fit the mould of the Byronic hero.

    Characteristics:
    A strong sense of arrogance
    High Intelligence and intuition
    A troubled past
    Introspective and self-critical
    Mysterious and Charismatic
    Cynicism
    A distaste for social norms

    I would say that INTJ is a perfect type for them (see Heathcliff), followed by ENTP (like Byron himself) and ENTJ.

    Nah, MacGuffin, Byronic heroes include Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights , Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre , and the title character from Pushkin's Eugene Onegin ...all INTJs.

    I mean, some of them might be ENTJ or ENTP, if we look at all of these works of literature. But ENFP? Who is an ENFP Byronic hero?

    You apparently missed part of the definition: "Mysterious and Charismatic"

    Charismatic

    They all kind of sound like damaged Fs to me in a way.

    Dude, I majored in literature. Most Byronic heroes are INTJs. I'm sure some are ENTPs, I could see that, but in books I don't prefer as strongly.

    But if you can actually produce an ENFP, I'd be most pleased.

    I agree. The only character that fits the model of a Byronic hero that may be a feeler is the Phantom of the Opera. I think he's an INFP. But I'm not sure of his type as well, so I won't defend this idea too much. An ENFP Byronic hero would be very difficult to find, I've never seen an example myself.
