It was pointed out that there were too many ENTPs in my “Dark Tower” characters entry. Perhaps, but the main thrust of evil in that and other Stephen King fantasy epics is ENTPish. Walter o’Dim (who is the same antagonist, Flagg, in “The Stand”, another Good vs. Evil epic) and The Red King, are both what D&Ders call “chaotic evil”. Their evil is more about the process (P) of creating discord than the ultimate aim of taking over and installing a new and improved system (NJ). When ENTP trickster Walter o’Dim/Flagg succeeds in wrecking a world, he gets bored and moves on.
Compare these NP villains to the main forces of evil in our world from the 20th century to the present, who are “lawful evil” ideological monsters with a decidedly more NJ flavor. Their evil is more about the end result (J) of installing systems of repressive order (eg, the Nazis, religious fundamenalists, communists, etc.), which they see as “good”. Today’s “visionary” terrorists may appear at first glance as agents of chaos, but the chaos they create is contained within their “end justifies the means” goal of installing fundamentalist theocracies. They see themselves as fighting against chaos (eg, their view of the West as “decandant” because of its “tolerance” for homosexuals). Likewise Hitler and the Nazis believed they were fighting a justifiable war against the “chaos” of racial integration, among other things.
So why is NP “chaotic evil” more prominent in fiction than in reality, where the most dangerous collective forces usually seem to fall under the heading of NJ “lawful evil” (not that its agents are all NJs; NPs fight on the side of lawful evil in our world as well)?
