    Default The Ultimate Bad Guy Typology Thread

    Inspired by a post I responded to in a specific thread about MBTI on a Swedish forum, a user who asked for some examples of INFP bad guys, which I shared a few of my own conjectures. I thought it would be interesting to have a thread about evil people/wrongdoers throughout our history. This thread is of course limited to real life people, although comparisons to fictional characters of the same type as one of your specimen can be tolerated. Due to my extensive interest in criminology and forensics, I am much more well-versed with serial killers and gangsters, rather than dictators.

    I'm just going to start off with some people I typed a long time ago that I can think of at this very moment. Will return later with more and eventually even new extrapolations of mine.

    John Gotti (ENTJ, my all-time favorite gangster)
    John A. Gotti (INFP)
    John List (INFJ, took a very long time for me to finalize despite being my favorite case of all time)
    Mary Bell (INFP)
    Andrei Chikatilo (INFP, possibly ENFP, Fi-Ne vs. Ne-Fi)
    John Christie (ISTP)


    Anyone have any suggestions for people like Herman Webster Mudgett or Albert Fish? I haven't really ruminated one bit about their type, but my impression of them is that they would be comparatively easy to make a qualified type guess, once you start thinking about them from a Jungian perspective.

    Unlike the ones I previously posted, these are not totally original ratiocinations by myself. These are typings I've seen that I concur with.

    Ted Kaczynski (INTJ)
    Anders Behring Breivik (INTJ)
    Adolf Hitler (INFJ)
    Saddam Hussein (ESTJ)
    Richard Ramirez (ENTP)
    Heinrich Himmler (ISFJ)

    I suspect H.H. Holmes is an INTJ. Anyone who concurs or objects? Even though I am very familiar with the case, and his personality, I haven't done a mental psychological profile on him with like the others. Christie, followed by John List, are the only ones where I am not 80+% sure, and those took the longest time.

    Dr. Wertham, who examined Albert Fish, insistently considered him an introvert, which is something to build on.

    More typings will come when those people cross my mind. I have a lot of typed people in my head, some who I took a long time before deciding and some who I typed instinctively. It just hard to remember all and to think of just all those persons in this very moment.

    I will add more when I think of them. You're absolutely free to ask if I have any suggestions about a specific person and I will tell you whether I have typed this person or not, and of course if it was done based on hunch or cogitation.
