    Default What Type is Disney's Mulan?

    Usually everyone uses the easy cop out of calling disney heroes ExFP. I actually doubt it here.

    Anyone have a clue?

    Actually, now that you've said it, ESFP doesn't sound too bad for Mulan. I have to think it over. Clever, loyal. Not really a planner. Independent.

    (And most Disney heroes aren't really EXFP. Off the top of my head: Wall-E:IxFP. Woody:ISFJ. That ant in A Bug's Life: IXXX. Belle: INFJ. Cinderella:ISFJ. Arthur:IXFP. Simba: INFP. Mickey:ESFJ. The racing car in Cars:ESTP. I'll give you Aladdin and Ariel.)

    I would say ISTP hands down. This girl is a DOER, there's no doubt about that. And she wields the sword like an ISTP, as well as choosing to go into battle, which is a trait I could see easily in an ISTP. But I haven't seen the movie since it came out, I'm just using these general traits. A real hardass if I remember properly.

    I doubt she's ISTP, due to her inherent social sensitivity -- she's got a lot of Fe that feels natural, not learned.

    Which leads me more to the INFJ read. INFJ females can often come off like Sensors due to the Fe, if you don't know them. She likes closure, is dutiful, does her best to honor her family/father, and yet she really thinks outside the box -- her Fe nature seems pit against her tendency to see what must be done regardless of the rules (the Ni).

    Remember, the ISTP will interact primarily through Se as their major extroverted function; Mulan is obviously much more Fe (the IxFJ) type in the secondary position, her extraverted function, than Se.

    I don't remember the movie, but I guess a main character in a disney movie would work best with F anyways.
    Kids don't want to watch Ti for 90 minutes.

    lol, all right, that's funny.

    Usually the Ti guy is the quirky scientist in movies like this... but often they end up being ENTP because that type is so much more animated.

    I agree. INFJ was my inital theory. She's no extrovert.
