This thread is inspired by a remark made in the INFP villain thread:
"... an INFP wanting to stab someone else with a knife but holding the sharp end in his hand, thus wounding himself".
We all know evil overlords fail. What is the cause of their failure?
ESTJ: We've always won the battles with our swords. Never change a winning weapon. I'm not buying these gun things. (gets shot)
ESFJ: There is peace in my empire now. All soldiers can go home and be with their wives and children again. (there is no army left)
ENTJ: I'm not listening to any advice. I'm the boss, you're my minion. (Minion rebels)
ENTP: I'm adding a new feature to my superweapon... (gets stabbed with a knife)
ESTP: The hero is the best cook, I'm hiring him for cooking the victory feast. (gets poisoned)
ESFP: Taxes? Roads? You take care of these things, Minion. (Minion becomes Overlord)
ENFJ: I'm not an *evil* overlord! I'm not! (gets smashed by Evil God)
ENFP: Can't those enemies wait? I'm interested in immortality right now! (enemies don't wait)
INFP: I rather torture myself than anybody else. (gets tortured)
Okay... I didn't find a lot of failure reasons for the introvert overlords. Still, I'm quite sure a lot of evil overlords in literature or movies are introvert. Any ideas?
