You need to listen to Rita Skeeter to know that INFJ for him isn't possible. Though most often typed as INFJ, I think he's an ENTP, especially in the movies. I think ENTP gives him more depth. As I was listening to " Dark Lord Funk - Uptown Funk Parody ", it suddenly stroke me, that celestial inspiration.

MBTI type of Albus Dumbledore

. An INFJ. Literally the most rational, easy-going and level-headed character in that entire series.

Find out about Albus Dumbledore personality type

. INTP. This a common stereotype used by writers in television, books, and movies, for example, Merlin from Merlin BBC came across to many fans as being a quirky ENFP but, it's not until Merlin discards his happy-go-lucky facade that we see he is actually an INFJ especially, in season five.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Albus Dumbledore. Loki from Thor and Avengers comes across to many an ENTP because he hides his true desires behind quirk and wit. Dumbledore's Ni is revealed in Snape memory during DH Part Two.Which of the 16 personality types is Albus Dumbledore?. He had been planning Voledemort's death for quite some time (Judging). He also seemed to have accurately intuited what happened the night Harry survived the killing curse. Some Ni-dom seem to like hiding their NI behind sporadic Ne. Wait. . . This is the most inaccurate vote ever. Startegy, cunning, self-introspection, always getting away with things, skirting the law, quirkey sense of humor, invents his own magical equipment, has strange instruments in his office. . . INFJs keep dreaming. . . . He's one of the prime examples of an actualized ENTP. Anyone believing he's an infj really needs to stop voting on this site. He is distinctively ENTP and INFJ at he same time but mostly an INFJ, something only a fictional character can be. Also, he was tempted by the Hallows for the same reason that Voldemort made Horcruxes: a desire for being the "master of death. And on his quest to find the Hallows, he got tunnel vision to the point that he neglected those who mattered to him. If you want a functions-based argument, this was around the time in a person's life where their tertiary function wakes up and becomes conscious. Thus, his own moral code took on the appearance of the stereotypical INFJ moral code and from then on he behaved more like an INFJ/cared about others/etc. . . He personally had remorse for what he did and thus his subjective, ego-based ideals were molded into ideals that superficially resemble Fe. But his true Ni-Te personality is still evident when you take into account his many-year plan to stop Voldemort that involved sacrificing people and "raising [Harry] like a pig for slaughter. The more I think about it, the more I think INTJ is more plausible than INFJ. Don't be fooled by his outward demeanor. Remember, it was Grindelwald, not Dumbledore, who began the "for the greater good" quest and coined the phrase. Dumbledore bought into it because he loved Grindelwald, not because he came up with the idea of his own accord. Even Elphias Doge didn't have all the facts. Harry's perception of Dumbledore as the benign, wise old headmaster is not necessarily the reality. Even Snape, a more overt INTJ, was appalled when he found out Dumbledore's plans for Harry: "You've been raising him like a pig for slaughter. " And while McGonagall wanted to "not let Potter compete" in the Triwizard Tournament, Snape suggested to "offer him up as bait" (McGonagall's words) and Dumbledore "agreed with Severus. Both allowed their ideals to be driven by love for one person (Dumbledore and Grindelwald; Snape and Lily) but both are actually quite unafraid of using people in general as means to ends and are both impersonal deep down, though Dumbledore projects a caring aura. Both can be quite tenacious as well. The REAL Dumbledore, deep down, strikes me as an INTJ, like Snape. But he projects an INFJ aura because, with age, he has learned to be more kind. But Dumbledore also planned out Harry Potter's entire life, basically, and quite a few of the happenings in the series happen entirely because Dumbledore planned and orchestrated them. He also demonstrated incredible tenacity and resolve when you take into account the quest for the Deathly Hallows, which happened when he was very young and was unlikely to already be a balanced INTP. I agree that all of your evidence implies INTP but would an INTP really plan and orchestrate most of a person's life and spend his entire teenage years in a dogged, tenacious quest for the Deathly Hallows. I can't see that happening, really. They may plan and achieve goals in the short-term but not in the long term. But Tesla, an INTJ, was an inventor despite being a J. He has some INTPish tendencies, but I think being a balanced INFJ or INTJ with a more relaxed attitude in his later years makes more sense. I forgot to mention that he was an inventor and researcher years before becoming a professor, one who worked on a wide variety of things. I find even ENTP more plausible than INFJ. He certainly strikes me as a Lincoln/Ben Franklin/Da Vinci type. There is a 0% chance this man is a J. Come on people, are you kidding me. The way he changed the results at the last second in the first book. He has an enormous Pness. I think INTP based largely on the last couple of books, in addition to his absent-minded Professor-ish demeanor and calm, logical, impartial approach to most situations. A very mature and developed INTP by the time he reached his age of course (though he was never really "mature" in the "proper" sense, maintaining a sense of childlike whimsy), which can sometimes resemble an INFJ, which is probably the cause of the confusion. INTP. He reminds me a bit of Abe Lincoln in fact.
