    Default I think Dr. Manhattan was INFJ not INTP

    Ok so it appears as if everyone thinks that Dr. Manhattan from "The Watchmen" was an INTP. However, I think that he was an INFJ with strong Ti. Why?

    1. The way he spoke was very kryptic, and it sounded very similar to the kyptic language that many Ni users (especially INFJ types) use.
    2. The way that Ozymandias controlled him in the end was to manipulate him through his feelings, and his caring nature? Really what Ti dom can be easily manipulated through emotions.
    3. I saw no Ne in the guy at all.
    4. He was too pleasant to be an INTP.

    What do you think? Do you folks still think that Dr. Manhattan was INTP?

    Ok I don't know anything about a Dr. Manhattan though I know Yoda is commonly perceived as INTP though he could be INFJ so I guess the Ti could look alike in both types but idk.

    Dr. Manhattan used Ni not Ne. I have no idea what Yoda was. They changed his types throughout the movies. He seemed like an INTP in "The Empire Strikes Back" and more like an INFJ in the "Clone Wars" movies.

    Too passive to be INFJ. I'd say, if he was another type, it's probably ISFJ. But I still think INTP is the closest guess. Both are behind the scenes types, though.

    Sometimes I feel that there's this perception on these forums that INTPs come off "harder" than they do IRL.

    Dr. Manhattan as a sensor? HELL NO! That guy was intuitive as hell. There is no way that guy was a sensor, much less a sensing dom.

    Like I said, he's clearly a BtS interaction style. My first guess is INTP because he's passive and detached. My second guess would be ISFJ because they're the most like an INTP out of the BtS group.

    I don't go by "he seems, like, really intuitive and stuff man, because he's talking all this intuitive stuff, yaknow?" That's too vague.

    Are you kidding me? Everything about that guy screams intuitive: his constant use of analogies, the fact that he's a physicist, and the fact that he always seems like his head is WAY up in the clouds.
