ISTJ- Giyu Tomioka and Sasori

ISTJs are logisticians. These people are reserved, willful, and have a rational outlook on life. They map out their actions methodically and are capable of carrying out necessary tasks, irrespective of how they feel about a situation.

Giyu Tomioka

The best-case scenario of this type would be exemplified in Giyu Tomioka from Kimetsu no Yaiba. Tomioka lost his friends at the hands of a demon. This left him with a great inferiority complex throughout his life. Giyu, however, won't let his personal life get in the way of his obligations. Giyu is the first to say they need to kill Tanjiro when his attack as a demon starts, despite having a sibling bond with Tanjiro.


If Tomioka is an example of dealing with his traumas in a somewhat healthy manner, Sasori from Naruto Shippuden would be the opposite. A member of the Akatsuki, Sasori lived a lonely childhood, having lost his parents to war. He developed a cruel, nihilistic outlook toward life and other people.

Despite this, he was a punctual and down-to-earth man. Above all, Sasori was a man defined by his integrity. Despite being a member of the Akatsuki, he accepted his defeat at the hands of Granny Chiyo and Sakura with grace, and in his last moments, provided valuable information to Sakura

ISTP- Levi Ackerman and Dabi

ISTPs are virtuosos. They frequently have an autonomous outlook and pursue their goals with little help from others. They approach life with curiosity and individual skill, changing their strategy as necessary.

Levi Ackerman

Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan exemplifies an ISTP. Levi grew up fatherless, in an extremely poor environment. His mother died at a young age, leaving him to fend for himself. Levi grew up to be an antisocial loner.

Even in the Survey Corps, Levi often worked on his own. Despite all of it, Levi was extremely dependable and he served as a mentor figure for many, including Eren Yeager.


At worst, an ISTP can also become someone like Dabi from My Hero Academia. ISTPs can be extremely dedicated to their goals, often to their detriment and sometimes to the detriment of everyone around them.

Dabi’s drive to achieve his goal of surpassing All Might would eventually cost him his family and his sanity. Dabi highlighted how his boyhood dream evolved into an unhealthy obsession by comparing his objective to a fire that his father set inside of him that would not go out and that he could not bring himself to ignore.

ISFJ- Haku

ISFJs are born defenders. These individuals typically have a friendly, unpretentious demeanor. They are responsible and effective, paying close attention to the little things in life.

Naruto’s Haku was a true ISFJ in body, mind, and soul. A fan-favorite character, despite his short appearance in the show, Haku’s short-lived life is a tale of trauma after trauma.


Haku was a descendant of the Yuki clan and an orphan from the Land of Water. Under the guidance of Zabuza Momochi, with whom he later teamed up and eventually became a Mercenary Ninja.

Kind and gentle Haku lived a childhood where he was shunned for his powers. His father killed his mother for the same and was going to kill Haku as well with a mob of villagers. However, Haku ended up unwittingly killing them all.

Zabuza accepted Haku for who he was. However, even to Zabuza, Haku was nothing more than a weapon to be used. Haku knew this and despite it, he was completely dedicated to serving Zabuza with his life on the line.

Haku was a kind-hearted, obedient, and enthusiastic shinobi who believed that when one has someone they care about to defend, one becomes truly strong. Despite his exceptional fighting skills and extraordinary powers, Haku loathed having to kill people in order to serve as a tool and tried to avoid doing it whenever possible.

ISFP- Eren Yeager

ISFPs are enthusiastic "Adventurers" who love to try new things. They occasionally engage in dangerous activities only for the thrill of it. Whatever they do, ISFPs are passionate and unexpected in all they do. Because they occasionally display competitiveness and stubbornness, ISFPs may be difficult for others to cope with.

Eren Yeager

Eren Yeager from Attack on Titan is a complex example of an ISFP. He was extremely curious about what lies outside the wall, however, he looked down on those who were content within the walls.

Moreover, he was ferociously protective of his friends but due to his impulsivity, he often put them in dangerous situations. As the story progressed and Eren’s goal kept getting concrete, he lost sight of everything else.

Eren was willing to use whatever means to his end, often committing heinous and despicable acts in the process. By the end of the story, Eren becomes an unquestionable villain, destroying almost all of mankind for his twisted, skewed goal.

INFJ- Armin Arlert

INFJs are "Advocates," which means that their humanistic principles serve as their compass in life. They uphold their moral principles and constantly speak out for fairness.

INFJs are shrewd enough to quickly discern someone's genuine motivations through all of the sleights and deceptions. Their inner vision, moral principles, and peaceful, principled humanism serve as their compass in everything.

Armin Arlert

Armin from Attack on Titan grew up to be a curious, compassionate, and extremely intelligent person. He is a highly thoughtful individual. He enjoys delving deeply into things and using his intellect to come up with solutions.

Armin is a terrific tactician because of these personality attributes, as well as his intelligence, sound judgment, composure, capacity for planning ahead, originality, and outside-the-box thinking. He is a calculating decision-maker, but he also has a high level of empathy and emotional sensitivity.

Armin's compassionate nature causes him to wrestle with the idea that he must forcibly abandon his humanity. For instance, Armin killed a person to save Jean because it was the right thing to do; yet, the incident left him feeling extremely unhappy.

INFP- Kaneki Ken and Gaara

INFPs yearn for authenticity and individuality in all facets of their existence. They never want to allow the outside world to persuade them to alter who they truly are.

Kaneki Ken

For the majority of Tokyo Ghoul, Ken Kaneki is troubled by this internal conflict. Gentle, modest, and charitable, he goes above and beyond to safeguard people who are important to him, even at great personal risk. He epitomizes the mysterious, morally-conscious nature of the INFP with his thoughtful, profound personality. However, he often feels alone because of his very nature.


A mixed bag INFP, Gaara's ill and healthy traits are mostly a result of his difficult upbringing. Gaara from Naruto was warm and pleasant as a small child, but after a string of terrible events, he gradually came to embrace the dark side of his character.

As a result, he lost all compassion for others' cries for help and felt compelled to murder them in order to establish his own existence. Gaara eventually reverted to the right path and worked to bring the Shinobi community together in peace. Gaara's behavior at his worst is certainly not relatable to INFPs, but at his finest, his idealism, compassion, and curiosity are.

INTJ- Shoto Todoroki and Pain

Architects (INTJs) are one of the most skilled and uncommon personality types, and they are all too aware of this. Logic-driven and quick-witted, architects take pleasure in their independence of thought and in their remarkable ability to spot hypocrisy and phoniness.

But because architects' minds are constantly working, it may be difficult to find people who can keep up with their constant examination of their surroundings.

Shoto Todoroki

Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia was abused as a child and had a challenging home life, which contributed to his initial chilly and distant attitude. His abusive, overbearing father and a mother who was unable to cope with it, left Shoto deeply scarred for life, literally and figuratively.

In the beginning, Todoroki would often charge on his own, with disregard for the feelings and opinions of other people. Shoto was focused and emotionless, and he liked to be alone rather than socialize.

Shoto, however, significantly improved in social skills and kindness during the U.A. Sports Festival events, even developing a sense of humor and occasionally smiling.


Pain from Naruto Shippuden is a whole other story. Nagato did not enjoy killing and was horrified by his early acts of violence against people who had hurt his friends and family because he had grown up in the midst of other nations' battles.

When he lost his dearest friend, he assumed the alias of Pain. This trauma caused a huge shift in his personality. Eventually, as Pain, Nagato was willing to destroy an entire village and even kill his teacher, as means to his end.

INTP- Zeke Yeager

INTPs are inventive and frequently have lofty goals since they are "Logicians." They are constantly interested in the world and what they can do to improve it. Although INTPs lack social skills, they are frequently highly clever. They frequently exhibit insensitivity and are sticklers for the smallest details.

Zeke Yeager

Zeke Yeager from Attack on Titan was a curious, intelligent, often cold, and sarcastic individual. He could assume the role of a leader with ease and showed the ability to prioritize a mission’s end over-sentimentality.

Zeke had profoundly pessimistic and nihilistic opinions about the chances for the Eldians in society (possibly as a result of his childhood and lack of attention from both of his parents). He had said as a young man that it would have been better had the Subjects of Ymir never been born. While an idealistic man, Zeke’s ideas were twisted and they blinded him to his detriment.



Entrepreneurs (ESTP) frequently have an upbeat, action-oriented demeanor and are adept at managing any situation. They are usually good at assessing their own strength and capabilities and that of others.

At the same time, however, ESTPs can often be judgemental and critical of people who aren’t up to their level. Akaza of Demon Slayer showcases several ESTP characteristics. A firm believer of Social Darwinism, Akaza vehemently despises those he deems weaker than him.

This hatred for the weak stems from his deeply rooted trauma of not being able to protect his loved ones. A deeply complicated antagonist, Akaza lived a life of agony in his human life as well as his demon life, despite being deeply dedicated to his loved ones or his task at hand.

ESTJ- Vegeta


ESTJs or Executives have a clear understanding of what should happen and are prepared to take charge to make it happen. Traditionalists through and through, ESTJs do not like it when things do not go the way they expect it to.

The prince of all Saiyans, Vegeta, exemplifies an ESTJ. Vegeta tends to jump head first into any challenge of strength. His need to be the strongest fighter is almost pathological. Initially, his Saiyan pride made him cruel and sadistic. Although the cruel streak of his personality was likely a result of the trauma and humiliation inflicted upon him by Frieza. As the show progresses, Vegeta mellows out, nonetheless retaining his Saiyan pride and super serious demeanor.

ESFP- Gon Freecss


ESFPs or “Entertainers” are outgoing performers who captivate and enthral others around them. They enjoy the people, food, clothing, environment, animals, and especially people around them. ESFPs often have a contagious zest for life and are friendly and outgoing. They prefer to be at the centre of things and the focus of attention.

Gon Freecss of Hunter X Hunter is the embodiment of an ESFP. He set out to become a hunter because he wanted to find what kind of job would make a father want to leave his son on his own. While Gon does not hold it against his father, the absentee father has had a great impact on his overall personality.

Driven by his heart, Gon is often in search of one great thrill after the other. However, his impulsiveness and temper often take over his rationality, leading to his suffering. The fact that he has a stronger will than most people and a level head can sometimes make him frigid and cold.

ESFJ- Reiner Braun


ESFJ are Consuls. Generous and trustworthy, those who fit this personality type frequently take it upon themselves to keep their families and communities together in both big and small ways.

The more turbulent ESFJs have a hard time dealing with the consequences of their actions. These individuals frequently place blame for issues on themselves. This kind of Consul would rather see their regrets go away than consider them to be of any use, possibly viewing them as a criticism of their dependability.

Reiner was born a meek yet dedicated child. After Marco’s death, he adopted his personality and became a brother figure to his comrades. Due to a series of traumatic events, Reiner developed serious psychological issues. At his breaking point, he even contemplated suicide. But his love for his comrades proved to be greater than his self-loathing and that is what kept him going.

ENFP- Obito Uchiha


ENFPs or “Campaigners” frequently adopt radical concepts and take steps that show their feeling of optimism and altruism toward others. Their vivacious energy can move in many different directions.

Sometimes ENFPs allow their imaginations to run wild, and they frequently see evil intentions where none actually exist. Reading between the lines only works when there is something truly concealed there, but being hyper-aware and alert helps ENFPs develop their social comprehension. If it isn't, miscommunications could happen, and wounded feelings might ruin good connections.

It is this vulnerability of Obito Uchiha from Naruto that Madara exploits. Obito developed a one-sided feud with Kakashi despite being typically courteous and devoted to his friends and allies. Obito was infamous for doing random acts of kindness in Konoha, especially for the elderly, when he wasn't competing with Kakashi; as a result, he was frequently late. Due to a confluence of circumstances as well as his inherent goodness and optimism, Madara found Obito to be simple to take advantage of and ultimately corrupt.

ENFJ- Kamado Tanjiro


Protagonists (ENFJs) believe they were meant for something bigger than themselves. These personality types are thoughtful and idealistic, and they want to make the world a better place for everyone. Even when it is extremely difficult to do the right thing, they rarely hesitate to do it.

Tanjiro of Demon Slayer has been praised by others for his nice disposition, soft eyes, and sensitive demeanor. He is extremely tenacious and won't let up once he sets out to do something; his relentless search for a treatment for Nezuko is the clearest illustration of this.

However, Tanjiro is a person with a raging inner fire of fury and vengeance that burns behind his outwardly nice and compassionate exterior. While Tanjiro is kind and compassionate through and through, his personality has been deeply affected by losing his entire family at the hands of a demon.

ENTP- Gojo Satoru


Debaters or ENTPs are quick-witted and daring individuals who don't hesitate to challenge the established quo. In fact, they don't hesitate to disagree with anyone or anything. Regardless of any opposition, they may experience, they persistently pursue their objectives.

Satoru Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen is a good example of an ENTP. Born with immense power and talent, Gojo is quite an arrogant individual. His opinions of people frequently only extend to his assessment of their strengths, and he is generally uncaring about those he views as weak.

However, nonchalant and uncaring as he may seem, Gojo has layers of complex humanity woven into his personality. Satoru's grief for losing his best friend led to his eventual demise in Shibuya after having to kill Suguru before more disaster struck.

ENTJ- Madara Uchiha


ENTJs or Commanders are natural-born leaders. This personality type is an embodiment of charisma and self-assurance, and they project authority in a way that unites people around a shared cause. However, Commanders also exhibit a merciless level of reasoning that they frequently employ in order to accomplish whatever goals they have set for themselves.

Madara's childhood was a reflection of the times he lived in; the continual fighting made him a perfectionist who would practice something until he perfected it, and his victories on the battlefield gave him a great deal of self-assurance. Starting out as a bright young man, Madara changed completely when his last surviving brother died.

After leaving Konoha, Madara's focus shifted to the Eye of the Moon Plan, leading him to manipulate numerous people to further his own objectives. Madara just adhered to the "ends justifies the means" maxim because he really thought the strategy would help everyone.
