I’ve thought about that before. My initial impression was that she’s an INFJ, but I could easily see her being an ISFJ. You make some good points. I’d have to reread some of the books with MBTI in mind, I think, to have any strong opinion about it.
I’ve been so distracted, I’ve hardly had time to think much about Myers-Briggs.
Well, that’s not true. I’m always thinking about Myers-Briggs. But organizing my thoughts is another thing.
Still thinking about Tom Hardy, though. I’m not completely satisfied with ENTP as his type. And Emma Watson. I think she’s probably an INFJ, but it’s hard to tell. And fictional characters, like Jay Gatsby, who I think might be an ENFP… but I’m only halfway through the book, so who knows.
It’s possible. I believe that everyone has a bit of everything in them. So it’s possible for someone to have many characteristics of 2 specific myers-briggs types at once. However, I personally believe that everyone ultimately falls under one type, when everything is considered (temperament, functions, etc). But of course, many people believe otherwise! Thanks for the input!
Yeah, I think Tom Hardy’s an ENTP again. (Sorry for the awful cheesy post title.)
I guess I’ll never really know. Obviously. But I don’t think he’s an ISTP.
None of you will take me seriously on anything anymore because I’ve changed my opinion on the matter about 5 times. Sorry about that.
But Tom Hardy’s brain is extraverted intuition (Ne), in my opinion. Constantly jumping from one possibility to another, interested in concepts, ideas and elements of the imagination. I think yes, he earns the type ENTP quite well.
wendyloulou reblogged this from you and added:
wow excuse my barging in, but i always thought Tom Hardy was a textbook example of ENTP. hmmmmmm. idek…
That’s interesting! My first impression was ENTP as well. I don’t really know. But I am fairly convinced he’s an ISTP now. I could be swayed again, though.
So, the guy definitely has introverted thinking and extroverted feeling in his conscious functions?
Haha, I suppose so!
You know what? The responses people gave me and a little more research have convinced me. Tom Hardy is probably an ISTP.
He and Ryan Gosling, man. I’ll admit, my 2 biggest celebrity crushes at the moment. Maybe I’m just meant to be with an ISTP.
Why isn’t Hardy an INTP?
I suppose it’s hard to explain. I’ll try, though.
I don’t think he’s… “inwardly focused”? in the same way that INTPs are. That’s really vague, and it’s because I don’t actually have any specific evidence to back it up. It’s just something I gather from watching him in interviews and such.
I think, if he’s an E, then he’s an ENTP. If he’s an I (which I’m starting to lean toward more and more), then he’s an ISTP.
My vote is that he’s an I not an E.
I think he’s an I.
my vote is that he’s xSTP. he doesn’t have enough Ne to be ENTP, and he’s definitely not INTP.
Yeah, he doesn’t strike me as an INTP at all. I could easily be convinced that he’s an ISTP, but not so much an ESTP.
I’m actually inclined to believe he’s an I as well. The only reason I didn’t suggest ISTP before is that I was 60% sure he’s an N. But, 60% isn’t much to go off of.
Thanks for the responses!
I think, is an ENTP. This hypothesis is only based on a few interviews I’ve seen with him.
He is definitely a thinker. There’s no question. And based on just observation and things he says in his interviews, lifestyle, etc., he strikes me as an -NTP. The only reason I give him an E rather than an I is that he’s more outspoken and comfortable with people than many INTPs that I know. INTPs can be very gregarious (probably due to their inferior function, Fe) at times. But he seems, to me, more extraverted than introverted. He also reminds me a lot of some ENTPs that I’ve met, so I guess I’m a bit biased there.
What do you think?
Not completely sure, obviously, but I really think so. I also think she’s a J, with Fe. I can’t decide if she’s introverted or extraverted, though.
She could also be an ENFP though. I could see that. Maybe.
