One of his greatest triggers for starting all the mess was to eliminate Angela's debt and overall free people from corporations rather than a personal vision on how the world should be. In fact, when he criticizes the fakeness of social medias may indicate Fi, which is common to INTP have good developed too. He hacks people because it's a way he found to feel more conected with them. There is a scene where he imagines how his life would be if he had real relationships with people.

MBTI type of Elliot Alderson

. I don't see Fi neither Se in him. Like "iamjoey31" said, he reminds his past in a subjective way (Si).

. And there is the fact INTPs can have good developed Te too. Furthermore, I don't see the arrogance someone below said he has, I found he very flexible, relaxed and he is not self-confident at all, he doubts himself all the time.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Elliot Alderson. I Watched eps 1&2 and he seems INTP to me, an unhealthy one with Ti-Si loop. He also has some Fe moral code.Which of the 16 personality types is Elliot Alderson?. I had voted INTJ before but in some instances he is completely INTP to be honest. I don't think we can make a complete and irrefutable argument for either type. I personally see many signs of inferior Se and dominant Ni in him, with some signs of Ti and Fi, none so ever for Ne. Also I see a surge in certain votes from what I remember from last time. I was going to comment, the came across "iamjoey31" 's comment, you truly spared me the trouble. I believe that anyone who feels like refuting INTP votes legitimacy should try and counter his presented arguments first, set aside the fact that there has been a vote spam or not. Reading the comments, it seems like INTP was spammed at least 7 times, maybe even more. I don't understand what the INTP votes are about at all. It's as if people think that hackers are automatically INTP. Yes, INTPs are the most likely to just randomly hack stuff for the fun of it, but Elliot shows a purpose with all his hacks. I think judging off his mental state it's hard to say with 100% clarity which INJ he is, but I am fairly certain it is INTJ. Looking at socionics we see that Ti is the major function playing in the Id block of an INTJ. And while we do not see Te in action we have to assume that that is very much something which takes over when he becomes Mr. Robot. And why might we say Fi. in this same episode from last week he has that flash to the future where he is sitting eating somewhere as the world before them falls down, enjoying each other's company. To me that seems indicative of a low level Fi. To have those desires within him that are positive. He uses Ni, Ti and Fi mainly. Sometimes Te. But his Fe is very weak and Fe stuff is one of his major problem so INFJ is out of the question. INTJ fits the best. And he researches everything, collects informations about people and thinks he knows them (without giving an interest in their emotions), thinks emotions are weakness or doesn't matter and is more interested in dealing with informations about people than actually them which is more of a NT thing overall. But i think he is INFJ more than INTJ, his inner monologue are very Ti for me. I think actions, habits etc. speak louder than words in terms of MBTI, so I would go with INTJ for Elliot as he's an excellent hacker, quite douchy (for example to his drug dealer girlfriend :( :( :() yet very obviously Fi-driven (INTJ) rather than Fe-driven (INTP). With that said, he does have Fi superpowers for no reason, for example being able to read people as well as he does and his idealism. Honestly I think this is because the director/writer of the show is likely an INFP, or at least ENFP. It's this emotionally driven remix of all kinds of cool movies (Kubrickian shots, Fight Club's plot, American Psycho villain, etc. ). He laments at society for being fake and in his mind is the proverbial blame of big corporations. Yet despite this, at his core, he did his hack to "save the world". The reason I see him primarily as an FiNe user instead of a NiTe user is simply that he lacks the vision, force of will and tactiturn strength of an NTJ user. fsociety is an Ne rebel group, not an Ni; it doesn't create controlled chaos which it takes advantage of a la Littlefinger that you would expect of an NTJ but it's very random, chaotic. And when you look at Elliot as a leader, he does the bark of a Te user, he's not aggresively calling shots, systematically organizing the group and setting up their vision, which seems very shaky and poor planned. Elliot is foremost a moralist hacker, much like Snowden who's typed between INTJ and INFP and I think that's where the debate on his character should be headed. Introverted Thinking (Ti): First and foremost, Elliot is an information gatherer. He spends huge amounts of time on his computer only information gathering. He researches everything he hears about, and he hacks everyone he meets or even hears about from others around him, no matter how brief their contact. Every once in a while, he does something with this knowledge, but the great majority of the time is spent just taking it in. He’s a talented hacker, and is extremely gifted in working with computers. He works well with impersonal systems, and he can always determine all of the flaws in the system. He’s a master at working out people’s passwords, able to figure them out quickly and logically. His logical abilities are a point of pride for him, to the point of sometimes feeling smarter than everyone else, underestimating others, or getting overly frustrated when his efforts aren’t working. Extroverted Intuition (Ne): For all intents and purposes, Elliot creates a whole “imaginary person” (the viewer) just to talk about his ideas with. During the monologues he frequently focuses on heavily symbolic language and over-arching ideas about society as a whole. Before the series starts, he’s content with doing what little he is doing. When it comes to ideas, Elliot seems to be influenced by external ones and to go through stages. Not only does he temporarily get obsessed with time, but his temporary obsession branches off into other symbolic realizations that aren’t really related (“We’re all living in each other’s paranoia. ”). While he does have one ending goal for the season, he goes through various stages of “should I or should I not” where he branches out and tries other stuff for a while. He also seems to see possibilities where others see inevitabilities. Robot over whether there’s only one solution because he believes there are always options available. In episode 8, he talks about how he wishes he could just come to one easy solution instead of having a “cluttered mind”. Otherwise, he can only make generalizations or just gets frustrated (such as when he can’t hack Michael Hansen in episode 1). He sometimes questions his assumptions. In episode 5, after running into Tyrell again, he asks a ton of internal questions before deciding that, “Shit, he’s gonna kill me. ”, his Ne jumping to the worst possible conclusion without all the information. Robot to hack, he finds him unpredictable and constantly asks him (Ti) about his motivations. In episode 1, when he’s reading people like Colby, he references knowing these things due to making connections between the fact that he uses a Blackberry and other external clues given by Colby’s appearance and behavior. In episode 1, when his psychiatrist is upset over losing her boyfriend, he cites knowing due to clues such as her eyes on top of the fact that he was the one who asked the boyfriend to tell her. Introverted Sensing (Si): Elliot does not view his past objectively. Robot about his father (Episode 2), he gives a version of the events that’s very focused on his interpretation and feelings on the what happened. When asked if he ever considered other perspectives, he’s taken aback. He also tends to relive past experiences, rather than just remember them. He has “flashbacks” about his mother just about any time the subject comes up. His favorite movie has been Back to the Future ever since he was a very young child. He finds comfort in his childhood friend. When he’s not going there, he’s going to other spots that relate to his past. According to Shayla, he keeps routines and it disturbs her when he begins trying to break them (Episode 2). ) A very obvious tie to this is his hoodie, which he wears constantly. Even when told to take it off just about every day at work, he still wears it. All of his self-destructive behavior can be linked back to either his mental illness or his inferior Fe. He lashes out physically only during emotionally explosive episodes and only takes drugs to “numb the pain”. As is mentioned above, Elliot takes drugs only because he wants to dull his emotional pain. He doesn’t know how to talk to people, despite often expressing his desires to reach out to them. He’s emotionally explosive, crying “every two weeks” (Episode 1) and often yelling at others when he is upset. It makes him uncomfortable to make huge external displays of emotions, but he has trouble controlling them. He often tries to make others comfortable by not sharing thoughts he knows would upset them, though he does not always know how. On the other hand, this same tendency sometimes causes him to stifle his feelings (often hatred, such as for others, society, and his job) and his desire to do good, because he doesn’t want to tell others about negative thoughts he has. In episode 1, when he mentions that he’s “good at reading people” he follows it up with, “I look for the worst in them. ” Aside from the inferior aspect of the Fe, Elliot also has some perks of it. It’s another reason Elliot can read people well, even though he often uses it negatively. It also plays a role in his motivations. From then on, this shows up over and over again. He takes the dog from Michael Hansen because he can’t stand seeing it mistreated. At the end of the day, when asked what his motivation is in working through fsociety (Episode 9), he replies, “To save the world. ”INTJ. INTPs, as much as they don't want to admit it, like to get recognized and accepted for their logic and logical contribution (inferior Fe). But Elliot is obviously driven by his inner vision (Ni) and personal ethic (Fi). http://funkymbtifiction. tumblr. I'll post it on here later. People should stop putting their own type on a TV character they like. He's clearly more Te/Ni/Fi than Ti/Ne/Fe. . . . . . Clearly INTJ, despite his weak Te. there's been some bad spamming on anime characters too recentlyFor admin: 7 INTP votes were spammed and thus should be removed. INTP because most introverted type. INTP crime : Hack https://s-media-cache-ak0. pinimg. jpgHmm i have to agree with kyriette here, he doesn't seem really Ti to me but clearly Fi/Te. So either INFP or INTJ and I lean towards the latter. INTP-Schizotypal type Mr. Robot says Elliot is Messy (P)He is an introvert with Ni-Fi essentially and a little bit lower Te, but he's control freak side (he wants to spy, control and know about people around him, he wants to control the quantity of drugs he's doing etc. . . .

I actually believe he's a disturbed INFP. Have to take the Mr. Robot side as a part of his own psyche.

I coud see him either as a unhealthy INFP or an INTP. I don't know why people are typing him as INTJ

I don't see the Ti and he figures out pretty easily what other people expect from him emotionally.

All his monologues are Ti-Ne "Is that why the infamous Whiterose is such a legend? Because he's more paranoid than the rest of us? We're all living in each other's paranoia. You definitely can't argue that. Is that why everyone tries to avoid each other?"

Clearly INTJ.  He  might come across as INTP due to his social, or lack their of, tendiances in the show and perhaps due to a bit of basis that INTJ TV characters are supposed to be a bit 'bad ass' but INTJ are just as awkward as INTP., if not more varying on the situation.  INTJ is more obvious in the second season.  In the first season, INTP would not be aware of their surroundings like Elliot was when he noticed the connections between his shrink's hunger games books and such symbolism that would escape an INTP.  In the second season, Elliot is sensitive to sounds, inf Se, ex: first episode, he paused the episodes because he just wanted peace and quiet.

first seasons**   In the third season*

" his shrink's hunger games books and such symbolism that would escape an INTP" No, it wouldn't, it's not a far-fetched detail. Being sensitive to sound isn't especially related to Se. That's not how function works. I could see INTJ for his drive toward an objective, but that's not something excusive to Ni-Te. Elliot is very contemplative, his insights and monologues are a way to internalize and categorize what is going on around him. He is clearly an improviser who can come up with ideas on the spot, and he seems to enjoys linking theories with ideas. The idea of muting the sound around you like you would mute a video is pure Ne fantasy.

Obvious INTP 5w6

I don't see Ne in Elliot, t-Si, nor inf Fe.  INTP is the easy and lazy typing route here.  What you explain sounds more like functions of Ni-Te-Fi-Se,  approach is interrupted, or N types in general.   Elliot is an unhealthy INTJ.  Mr Robot is an unhealthy ENTP.  INTJ-ENTP dynamic.  I  just know, I don't care to nor need to explain further.    You can think wrongly what you like, it bothers me none.

"I just know" That's the exact part where you renounced intelligence.

The guy shows Ti-Ne way of thinking throughout the whole show but no he's INTJ because "hey I know he's INTJ".

Come back when you figure out your MBTI types.  One shouldn't attempt to type characters when one cannot even figure out or properly type themself.  Or not some underdevloped 19 year old.  Learning to read and understand what someone writes is also enouraged.   If all_in was INFJ, the "I just know" part would connect with his Ni (and read what more I wrote) but since this is not the case, so I highly suspect you do not have Ni. I said I would not explain, I do not have to and I will not.  It's not my problem, what do I care what you think. Good luck.

If you cannot explain what you claim, then you have no right and no use in talking about it to anyone. You're intellectually useless, and an elitist delusive scum. I don't even watch this show, but your haughty take on my age doesn't match with your serious need to grow up and understand that if you're claiming something, the charge of proof is yours, and some vague and subjective claim like "I just know" will never have any value whatsoever. You're a failure at communicating efficiently with humans, leave.

I understand and see your points how Elliot could be an INTJ.It's really hard to type a fictional character. It's really hard to type the unhealthly. I'm having a hard time myself! I feel Elliot's possible types: INTP=INTJ>INFJ in a loop>INFP   It was concluded in what Miss wrote there wouldn't be any explanations; therefore, when she said she just knows it was not a "because" or a "reason." I feel she meant there is more to her reasoning but she wasn't going to take the time to explain it. So please enough of this unfriendly behavior everyone! *serves warm cookies and cold milk for everyone as a symbolic peace offering*

Aww. eats cookie Sorry Miss. But drink some chill.

There is some humor to be found in this.  I'm a failure at communicating yet you attack me and call me scum, hm, seems rational, I should totally listen to your solid conflicting advice.  You butt into my post with some pseudo comment attacking my intelligence based on some skimpy comment you misunderstood, then you irrationally don't take into account that age factors into the development of functions, and emotionally lash out disproportionate to the situation.  Not due to any logic but because Khel don't "like" something.  Seems one whom attacked proves himself to be the very things.Quite un-INTP.-like, even for a young one. So emotional, so personal, so angry, so self-righteous.  I detect high Fi in you. I highly suggest sullen ISFP for you, Khel. Maybe INFP. 

I wonder who's the most emotional here. *eats cookie*    Functions and rationality don't go well together btw. Bye.

It's funny you think my objective explanation of the truth and decision to abstain explanation translates to that, but most unfounded, no doubt. I hope you look forward to the moment you realize your true type, the chances are pretty high. 

I'm a hundred times more Ni-dom than you and your whole family together missbrittany. Don't bullshit me with your "I said I know so if you're a fellow Ni-dom you should understand" crap, being able to make quick and effective connections has nothing to do with having all the answers of life out of the blue without any explanations. While it's true that sometimes I do make difficult connections without having thought it through, I'm always able to provide explanations to back it up like any others INxJs, so could you. The truth is that you want so much Eliott to be an INTJ like yourself that you're ready to interpret anything as a proof of him being INTJ, despite the fact that he shows an Ti-Ne behavior like heavens already explained well.  In your state of mind, you could even analyse a scene where Eliott is taking a crap and say things like "oh he's touching his penis with his left hand while taking a shit, it's a proof of Ni-Te productivity because he knows he won't have the time after he comes out from the toilet and he's doing 2 things at the same time, showing without any doubts that he's INTJ !!!"

“mbti: infj”

I'm more Ni-dom than you could possibly imagine. My crystal balls have tinier crystal balls inside them. I can see the future. No, scratch that. I am the future. I am from the year 2149. And in my time, you're dirt, Brittany. You were born in dirt. And it is dirt to which you will return. You cling to a dim hope that masquerades as "Introverted Intuition". But it's amateur hour;  a man throwing rocks at a God. You cannot see beyond the beaten path because leads to an absolute end. Only death awaits. You can't see it. How could you? But I can. I can see everything.
