    Good list. Should make the INTPs feel better (otherwise they'll have to pin their hopes for more notoriety on INTP-typed McCain winning the White House).

    The only ones of those I had down were Dr. Strange, Data and Gandolf (who I type as an INTJ). Beast an INTP? That could fit. Spider-Man as ENTP I’ve considered, though sometimes he seems more NF to me; definitely XNXP.

    Haven’t thought about Keyser Soze in awhile, but I think you’ve nailed him as an INTJ.

Every race they met on their way through the Core had a star drive based on a different theory. All those theories worked, even when they ruled out one another’s basic assumptions. You could travel between the stars, it began to seem, by assuming anything.”

    McCain INTP?

    He seems obviously ExTJ to me.

    Peter Parker, I think, is a pretty clear INFP (and was one that I had in mind when I posted yesterday). I think comic book and serial heroes though are harder to type; sometimes the personality will shift depending on the writer.

    I thought of Hank McCoy. He could be IxTP but I'm not sure, he seems very S in some ways. (The "Beast" thing tends to tie him to concrete sensation, so that could be confusing the read.)

    Dr. Strange is a pretty snappy dresser for INTP, I must say. He was also a world-renown surgeon; i wonder what the demographics are for INTJ, INTP, and ISTP for world-class surgeons.

    I could be wrong. INFP makes sense, too.

    [QUOTE=nightwatcher;213162]INTPs appear to be under represented in Western fantastic fiction, which often seems to pit INTJs against ENTPs. Why isn

    We have a zaney side to us. Stories starring us should be comedies, due to our lack of hard core short term ambition, and our disinterest in rule following. Almost any SciFi Fantasy with an element of comedy is likely to have an INTP lead character.
    The MBTI types me as an INFP, however, SOCIONICS calls me an Logical Intuitive Extram (called an ENTj in our terms.)

    Tim Burton's Alice is a newer NTP character I like. At least, she's seems INTP or less outgoing ENTP.
    Fox Mulder is INTP at times
    Not fantasy exactly, but Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes is kind of INTP.. or very out of it ISTP.

    *At least one* of those stoic Trek characters is an INTP. T'Pol, Seven of Nine, Spock.. Sometimes I'm not sure if that archetype is INTP or INTJ

    I don't seem to be very definitive. "At times", "kind of"..

    Not to go way off topic (but I'm going to), you're not the only person I've seen type Tim Burton's Alice as an INTP. Why? She seemed so ridiculously INFP when I was watching it. I don't get it.

    I thought RDJ's Sherlock was STP. He seemed extremely oriented to extraverted sensing with such precise attention to detail. His deductive processes struck me as NiTi. Maybe I'll rewatch it...

    Maybe she could be, but it didn't seem like her idealism or values came out to the forefront much. Throughout the story, she's just a skeptic, detached until she's finally faced with the reality that she has to help in order to get home. And even then, she doesn't really form much attachment with anyone per se. She even tells Hatter that's when it's all over, he won't exist. That she knows he isn't real. Depp has this kind of confused, crushed look on his face. It's almost like some blunt moment from Daria.

    Many years ago since I read these books. But sure there are lots of INTPs in books like George rr martins - a song of ice and fire. Steven Eriksons - Malazan Book of the Fallen. In the dragonlance series, maybe Raistlin. Anne Rise - Lestat with friends.

    I don't feel underrepresented in fiction, especially fantasy.
