ISTJ fits better. ISTJ symbolic oriented or INTJ stuck in the pastLol everything you just described is a 1 trait. Thinking he does things wrong and trying to make them right = 1 trait. @Johncena I would agree.

MBTI type of Batman

. Especially from villains like the Riddler. @Omni Idk.

Find out about Batman personality type

. Like he purposely plays the devil advocates. I put 2w3 because when he thinks he does something wrong, he always tries to make things up right.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Batman. That is how I see him overall. He would likely be ISTJ if such a character existed in real life.Which of the 16 personality types is Batman?. INXJ types are usally thinkers than atheltic. His entire thing is his crusade against crime and bringing forth change in Gotham. His biggest fear is being corrupt or becoming like the criminals he fights, which is why he has a strict no killing rule. He's really the perfect example of a 1w2. He's way more 1 than 8. He's 126 or 125 sp/sx. He's way more 1 than 8. He's 126 or 125 sp/sx. 2w3 5w6 and 8w7 sp/sx being his core enneagram. depends of the writer or the movie maker in bvs he is istj in nolan trilogy he is intj in alan moore comics he is estj in the animated series he is entjTotally ISTJ, and I'm talking about the comics. You haven't addressed a single one of my points. You even continue to rant on about how I referenced inferior Fe gripping (when I mentioned it once and literally as a comparison, it wasn't even a serious point). The only reason why your hung up on 'civility' is because you have no argument left. People like you always suddenly start caring about the civility of debate when they're on the defensive. If you don't have a valid point anymore, you could always concede with grace as any sane person would. "He is clearly obsessed with the deeper and *conceptual* implications of things, what is beyond the sensory facts of the matter (as Si would be). But Ni is different in that it focuses on what is NOT sensory. " That was literally my first post. The difference being in the information they interpret and form impressions about. Si is about forming impressions from sensory data, and thus using these to navigate through the present. I'm sorry if my bluntness hurt your delicate sensibilities but come on, it's as if you're not even reading the posts. Damn, not only can you not handle having a civil argument, you also have no idea what the functions are outside of your own limited mindset and you can't even read an argument without coming to a billion unrelated conclusions. Which I already know about. Plus how are you going to have any cred when you think that an ISTJ, one of the most duty bound and productive of all the types, "cant do anything" while they're in the grip. Most of which I already knew. Damn. Which is Si. " This statement right here. NO, that is not Si. If you don't even understand what the functions ARE, then I don't see how you can presume to type anyone. I could go on and on about how that isn't Fe and how you're leaking Ne all over the place. But what's the point. Which is Si. Funny thing is that I'm also starting to think that you have a superficial understanding of the functions and how they interact on the axis. What's the point of this argument which I never even had any intention of starting. No offense, but I'm starting to think you have only a superficial understanding of the functional axis and gripping. I specifically said that he takes an inquisitive approach to his past and his past actions. That he looks at decisions he's made and turns them over and over, approaching them from different perspectives, analysing the consequences of different decisions, analysing connections forged as a result of his actions. He doesn't spiral and catastrophise (as I said earlier). An ISTJ in the grip would barely be able to get anything done. Have you ever seen an INxJ in the grip. It doesn't just manifest as binge-drinking and regrettable one-night stands for goodness sake. Hedonism extends beyond drugs, alcohol and sex you know. It's self indulgence. That IS aggressive. He loses sight of the big picture, whilst inferior Te would lose sight of one's own values in their driven compulsion to meet objectives. He doesn't just postulate any and every possible wrong that can happen with an action and paralyze (inferior Ne), He doesn't explode and lash out in emotional angst due to build up of turmoil (inferior Fe). He recklessly *indulges* in his work whilst ignoring the larger implications/consequences of his actions, in favour of the immediate satisfaction (inferior Se). Are you joking. Of course being puritanical is a trait of inferior Se, are you kidding. Batman clearly favours the immaterial over the sensory. If you don't agree with that, pick up a Batman comic. Yes I did ignore it, because it is misrepresentation of the very concept of gripping. Being down in the dumps isn't gripping. Gripping is when you are under stress and thus manifest unhealthy behaviours of the lower functions. As I said, an ISTJ in the grip catastrophises and cannot stop seeing potential wrongs and negatives in any situation, they can barely get anything done. He's *learning*. Entertaining different choices he could have made, what would have lead to a better outcome. That's Ni. And even then, he still continues on down his intended path. This is all being in the grip of Se. And you didn't get the point either. The guy can't even maintain a relationship because he is so absorbed with his mission and purpose. That is clearly an intuitive obsession. Did you ignore what I said when he grips. Because all he does when he grips is have racing thoughts, which is generally linked to inferior intuitive functions. Ni dom would think that planning for all the little details to be tedious and overthinking. And yes, I said that because he has no Se. Inferior Se would either abhor partying or go off the deep end and binge in drinking, sex, gambling, etc to give them a cheap thrill, which he clearly doesn't do. That was my point. " It's funny that you say that considering the fact that Batman does exactly that. He doesn't catastrophise in the same way someone with inferior Ne would. "he hates it when people take hasty action, and he doesn't even care much for parties outisde of what they can do to reach a goal and he hardly participates in hedonistic behavior. " Um lol. . . Besides, Ni wouldn't bother with all the catastrophic possibilities or options as to how things might go awry, it would only see one clear idea that personally affects him. The Ne/multiple ideation that he uses is very simplistic and sometimes even leads to his own downfalls where he grips and becomes reclusive, looking back and reflecting on the past and all the different things he could have done and and all the different ways it would have been better, which would mark it as inferior Ne. He has no Se, he hates it when people take hasty action, and he doesn't even care much for parties outisde of what they can do to reach a goal and he hardly participates in hedonistic behavior. He's a clear ISTJ. Whoever claimed that he is focused on details and the past doesn't understand the core concept of Batman's character, of his existence in of itself. Even Batman as a concept, is focused on the bigger picture. He is clearly obsessed with the deeper and *conceptual* implications of things, what is beyond the sensory facts of the matter (as Si would be). Both Ni and Si are internal and subject, based on impressions. Batman does this all the time, the way he develops his plans, the way he goes about fighting crime. It is all spearheading Gotham towards the way he feels it SHOULD be. It is what he created Batman for. Most INTJs would honestly not be as proactive as Batman in shaping and realising their visions, but Batman is slowly but surely, in the only way he knows how, hammering Gotham into shape by making real and tangible changes (by fighting crime, cleaning up the city, some of his work as Bruce Wayne). The relationship between Ni and Se is clearly congruent to that of an INTJs. Reality doesn't live up to the ideal, but to Batman that doesn't matter, he has a vision for Gotham and whether he be damned or not he's going to do what it takes to realise it. And I think Te-Fi is obvious in him. Batman - INTJ. I would like to know how an INTJ would be able to reduce the Riddler's traps. hehehe He would probably use a manual to get out of the trap. He has things very planned and prepared. He does not follow anyone, he is very "my way", many times "my way or the highway" (Ni-Te)Apart from obvious Bat symbolism there is nothing Ni about him. Okay, but can we discuss the enneagram votes. i think he's a blatant 1w9. Let's compare it with a INTJ characters - Near, Lelouch, Sasuke, Aizen, Hannibal Books. Both see the past as something important but not allow themselves to be completely attached, and uses them to connect to the future. They live targets and facts that can be improved. Batman lives in the past, get the details from the past and use it for the present. The point is that Batman is not a fully objetiivo expensive but prepared and focused on the details. He spent years of his life training the body and mind which could result in a good development Ne, but we only see when you're trying to see the future and use as a strategy, the rest is just details of past and preparing and following order which was imposed preventing many changes. He is someone stuck in the past and stuck to the values that their parents went for it. If he has a contingency to take down all league does not make it Ni. If I was INTJ it would impose renovation, which is not the case because it does not kill your enemies and see the past as something important to follow and set out in this no major changes. If he were a INTJ he would not think twice about killing your enemies to turn Ghotam in your ideal world. If he has a contingency to take down all league does not make it Ni. You may well seek to understand the past of the enemy to use as possible for the present - Si-Ne. @Markz Demerius Except if you were actually familiar with the character, you would know that everything he does is planned. He has contingency plans to take down the entire Justice League if necessary, exploiting all weaknesses physically and psychologically. He has to understand every members' full mental profile and power set and then devise ways to take advantage and exploit everything he possibly can, which is how he manages to stand side-by-side with super-powered beings in the first set. He is without a doubt an INTJ. Where is the master plan. He is an ISTJ. He prepares for the future, if not plan. Sempra has something prepared. Some people say they can see INxJ or ISTP, but for some reason batman appears such a clear INTJ to me that INFJ and ISTP seem laughable. His primary motive is to bring justice to gotham, which seems very Te to me. The main stereotype of Ni is that they are mystics that operate spiritually, but that's not true, especially for NTJ's. Ni is basically just a more deep and less boraod analyzation of the future and of concepts and ideas. A Ti conclusion would probably look like, "If an apple is red, therefore it is not blue" and a Ni conclusion would be more like "If an apple is red, then apples probably reflect a different light off it" Ni is deeper and more theoretical, which is what batman is. Batman doesn't look at a clue set by a villian and think of a linear conclusion, he goes right to why they left it and tries to deeply analyze it, finding the bigger picture. As for INFJ, since the Ni explains his analyzations, and he uses Te, he is probably not INFJ. INTJ all the way. At least in the Christopher Nolan series, I see more INTJ than anything else, though. I don't think Batman can be typed. The character has a core but most of his "personality" is all over the place. That said, the symbolism and archetype of Batman points more toward Ni and just using his popular image my conjecture is INTJ but by no means is this a definite typing. All those who are dead sure on their abilities to type Batman must be full of themselves. . . He was an INTJ. But he was an 8. Not a 1. I'm not sure if I've learned how to type people the hard way or not. I just have a basic idea of how each type acts, and then I go from there. I actually can't recall a time where Batman clearly used Ti over Te. Been a while since I've seen the film's though. It's his seeming use of Ti that is creating all this confusion. Honestly he seems to be simultaneously a thinker and an INFJ. Oh well, cognitive functions are BS anyways. INTJ all the way. Nothing. He is pure INTJ. He doesn't follow the conventions of external morality. He has one rule and a vision, one planned out and executed as only an NTJ could. He is clearly intuitive. He is clearly a judger. And to me the thinking is just as clear as the other three. Batman is 100% INTJ across the board and it's not even close. One of the major themes of The Dark Knight is the whole "you complete me" Joker vs. Batman contrast, which combines Joker's extreme (villainous) ENTPness with Batman's extreme (heroic) INTJness (both NT, with completely opposite orientation functions, thus "completing each other" psychologically and providing all eight functions). That's why the "you complete me" climax was so haunting and brilliant. And that's only in addition to the fact that Bruce Wayne is, overall, a very logical person (despite call to heroism) with reserve and tenacity. "It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me. "Christopher Nolan's Batman is ISTPish INFJ. Batman is a tough one. I'd say INTJ or INFJ. He seems to also have Ti, meaning he analyzes things for weaknesses or plans rather than positions things throughout his environment like a Te user. Batman doesn't have control through his environment (Gotham), he has to analyze the situation & go from there. Who voted ESFP. I mean, really. Batman is from DC Comics, please change that.
