    ^Yeah he's most likely a 5.

    Definitely ISTJ though, I have no idea why people think N or F.

    Default No offense to ISTJs and all compliments meant to INTJs in my following, short answer.

    Dexter is so very likable because he is an ultimate master planner.

    His plans are impeccable and are out of the box.
    Not only they are unique, they are carried out like clockwork, maybe even better.
    (But this could be attributed to both INTJs and ISTJs.)
    Not only is he a master planner, full of unique ideas which are carried out like clockwork, he is also a contingency planner.
    If plan A doesn't work, he has a plan B, or plan C etc.


    It's not that the above traits are limited to INTJs but INTJs out of all types are far far ahead of all other types when all those traits are put together.

    And Dexter is absolutely certain of his ideas.
    He is sooo very confident in himself (actually his ideas).
    When it comes to feeling confident (of their thoughts, ideas etc) INTJs are far ahead of others.

    Those are my simple points in favour of Dexter being INTJ.
    Dexter is not a INTJ, he is a stereotypical INTJ, except for his murderous tendencies.

    ---

    To disprove INFJ type claims.

    He has absolutely no Fe. And his Fi is so strong he can't do a single task which he finds that goes against his belief system. That is strong Fi. Infact I have noticed after reading about it that Fi doms have this issue of physically not being able to do things which goes against their beliefs.

    He certainly has Fi.

    ---

    That leads us to INTJ.

    Lazy short answer it was, but to the point.

    The way he listens to his father's projection was determinant.

    Enneagram 6:
    Basic Fear: Of being without support and guidance
    Basic Desire: To have security and support
    Enneagram 5:
    Basic Fear: Being useless, helpless, or incapable
    Basic Desire: To be capable and competent
    I wished he was a 5w6 , but it sounds unlikely. Being useless is not a big worry for him.

    I agree with this. ISTJ 6w5 sp/sx.

    Actually, I was just thinking about this yesterday, about how he's probably a 6, not a 5. The schizoid pd would make me think 5, but other than that he doesn't really have anything that could make him a 5. He doesn't seem to have the 5's fixation, and his father and the code are his (6-ish) "guidance".

    Thank you.

    The combination of brilliant ideas with no loop holes carried out like clockwork with many contingency plans and always always sure of his own ideas screams INTJ .

    Not ISTJ.

    Agreed. Another is the way he understands what the other serial killers are going to do. Yes, you could say it takes one to know one, but how exactly does he know? These insights are pure Ni in my book (literally, since I've read all the novels but seen only 2-3 TV episodes).

    P.S. I wonder if there is a difference in type between the book and TV portrayals???
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Ni Fi actually.

    I've noticed that INTJs are excellent intention readers.
    They can read the intentions behind the actions of others.
    This I believe is Ni Te.
    They guess and guess and guess and guess until they arrive at the correct conclusion (or close enough).
    having 3 INTJ best friends who pour their thoughts out when alone with me have made me realize how much aware they are of their gut instinct.
    They are so much in touch of it they speak it out loud in their heads, sometimes to others.
    Fascinating!

    But to the best of my knowledge unless we are government detectives who are authorized to lift every stone to look for clues we would never be able to collect all information. Therefore never arrive at the correct intentions behind the actions. very rarely we do.

    But if one has well developed Fi (like one INTJ I know from RL) one could stop depending on the facts and start reading the people.
    I believe this is what Dexter does.

    Ni Fi - To read
    Ni - To plan
    Te - To carry out his plans
    Se - To enjoy cutting people up.
