A sx/so 5w4 is the most dramatic and aggressive of the type 5 stackings. From what we known about Hannibal, he's able to keep a cool composure all the time. A lot like a 4, he wants to let someone in who will accept his true self. The so/sx 5w4 fears rejection from those they love.

MBTI type of Hannibal Lecter

. I mean the entire show is full of Ni conversations back and forth between Hannibal and Will (who is INFJ). All MBTI types can manipulate.

. I see Hannibal as 5w4 4w3 8w9. The darkest tritype of all.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Hannibal Lecter. . .Which of the 16 personality types is Hannibal Lecter?. I see more 4w3 than 3 in Hannibal because he finds death beautiful. 4s are attracted to death. We also know that despite all of the killing he does, he becomes bleary-eyed and vulnerable in the presence of Will. Hannibal yearns and aches for Will Graham. This is a guy who had no problem getting isolated inside a cell with only his books for the sake of one person. Not Fe-dom. Also, ENFJs don't talk as highly intellectual and cryptic like he does, they blend better while Hannibal stands out, that's more INJ. Guys, he is clearly an evil ENFJ . . . He does not classify personal values, but is focused on the outside, so that likes to awaken the potential of others. Anyway, he has all the traits of a ENFJ - empathic, manipulative, charming, charismatic, like to exhibit and communicate with others . . . Honestly, after all this time I still feel he's ambiously INJ. His obsession with Will seems more Fi: where he continuously tests him to see if he's good enough, rather than just be loyal to him like a Fe user would. He's really like a mix of Johan and Littlefinger this way. If he's INTJ, he's definitely an enneagram 3w2, which would explain the need for adoration and making a good impression. Are you insinuating that we must have 'mutual feelings'. :oHannibal, MBTI verision: Hannibal Lecter - butterfly; Will Graham - bobnickmad; The Great Red Dragon -MarkDezmerius; Jack Crawford -Ventus; Chilton/Freddie Lounds - bonita/hello-to/physically-fit; Alana Bloom - SthereoO"INFJ's are irrational types" COME ON, KID. Whatever, INTJs are not the only ones who can think while the other restrict themselves to be retards, tryhard. INFJ's are irrational types, may not have the enneagrama 5. . . His philosophy is very restrained and cruel [Ni-Fi], there is no great need to expose as we see that is what INFJ's do. INFJ's are irrational types, may not have the enneagrama 5. . . His philosophy is very restrained and cruel [Ni-Fi], there is no great need to expose as we see that is what INFJ's do. Oh, and for the silent spamming, it is obvious, no one would ever vote something that you didn't developed as other did with the other thesis, kiddo. 3 offer a facade of good experiences in order to manipulate. That's how enneagram 3 works, 3 works as a base of others opinions, often developing unconsciously emotional connections in order to 'paint' themselves. That's what happens. Hannibal is not a facade builder, but a natural emotional feeler, as he rationalizes with natures and inside logic in order to understand things, he is acting overly logical, impulsed by a enneagram 5, that gives the INTJ stereotype. The kind of racionality of Hannibal is pure Ti, he uses inner and pure logic in order to understand. And, I don't get where is the 'supperficiality' on him. Tho. I win. No arguments, my dear INFJ's. I win. He is distant and superficial juggling with focus and purpose is quite rationalistic to the external event; only acts to show his mask Fe, but internally he is a monster that seeks someone who can understand [Ni-Te-Fi]. INTJ's 3w4 tend to develop emotional intelligence and understand the external sense, only indifferently and restrained way, like this Hannibal. INTJ's 3w4 tend to develop emotional intelligence and understand the external sense, only indifferently and restrained way, like this Hannibal. He is distant and superficial juggling with focus and purpose is quite rationalistic to the external event; only acts to show his mask Fe, but internally he is a monster that seeks someone who can understand [Ni-Te-Fi]. Of all the people that it connects the surface, the only one he actually created expectations was Will Graham could understand all its expansion (Ni-Fi). If it '' connects with the feelings and manipulates '' it is precisely because he is 3w4. You are comparing nazis to Hannibal. Where did you put your Te. Anyways. . . You are not INTJ, I'm sure, you did not came with a single fact or argument so you blamed the fuck out of it. Then you should go to develop deductive logical reasoning. . . ENTJ lead with facts, ENFJ lead with personal connections and individual recognising. It's what is doing, taking advantage of others feelings and move himself around them. :/Wow. It is much the same INFJ. . . It is much the same INFJ. Notice that all strategist base and external rationalization and total concentration and objective organization is more common among Ni-Fe than Ni-Te. . . Looking 5 INFJs are likely to behave like INTJs, they can be mistaken. But, yeah, better try with tryharder stereotypes like every villain is a NTJ. That's so poorly argumented I can't even. . . Lol. Really. . . (lol) I'm sorry for unpredictable explosion. ^^The Mastermind: Grammar dude. No, your fucking INFP. Hannibal is INTJ and Will IS INFJ. Hannibal is INTJ and Will INFP. In the movies, he's an INTJ and Clarice Starling is INTJ. (Identity types, which provide the relatable/indepth mutual psychological evaluations/conversations they have)This Hannibal is INFJ. Her empathic ability and need to connect and feel the world and display of charming way is closely linked to the Fe function. tumblr. com/post/111084304607/hannibal-hannibal-lecter-infj http://funkymbtifiction. tumblr. Okay, it was an accident. The intention was not to take credit for your post, but I found quite interesting and wanted to share here. Sorry. I am EonsInTheNight. ^^It's as the show strayed from the source as it went on. Hannibal is a character who likes to connect with the feelings of others, even superficially. It is extremely manipulative and know move the feelings of others for them to act the way he wants. When he runs away and goes to florence he automatically is already involved parties exposing himself because he likes to stay close to the others and feel them. I believe this is quite Fe. I need to rewatch the show, but I'm starting to believe there is a shift in some character's types between the first season and the last one. I don't think the first season is any different from the book (Hannibal being INTJ, Graham INFJ) but by the end of the 2nd and the 3rd the characters do seem to have changed, which may explain the confusion between INTJ/INFJ. * The reason most characters fit well into one type is because it seems unrealistic if they do not, but some writters can write the characters overlap MBTI margins and still look consistent. So it's Hannibal INTJ and INFJ. Both. Although I can see INTJ, I believe this goes for INFJ. Hannibal series, and the Will of the series, has a very keen empathy, can discover the "psychic entrails" of the people, a great knowledge of what afflicts the other. And the vast majority like most strategy games, pulling strings. Some actions of this Hannibal is making irrational and unpredictable ways. This is how a distorted Fe would act. The lack of control over their feelings and affection he feels and the need to either connect with others in your way and make decisions where you think in the other. He does not "demonstrate" Fe and Ti, you just see a behaviour and stop there. The same behaviour can come from very different reasoning. . What is so improbable in an INTJ playing mind games . . . Not because he is cunning and evil and is planned to be presented as an INTJWow, I don't where any of that comes from ^^ you write all this like it's an obvious and simple cooking recipe every cook tried and studied, basic stuff, except it's your own weird interpretation of both this fictionnal character and cognitive function theory. . The unpredictable game that I speak of is a distorted Fe. It is a game of one into the mind of the other. Ni and Te is driven by wanting to know what will happen and take control of the situation and be true to your belief and not let it ever. A Ni Fe Ti sociopath want to know what will happen, want to test the player using manipulations and play for some sides to know what will happen, but still focusing on end, but ready to be surprised. This is how the Te works. You are directed to the '' end justifies the means '' Fe is directed to connections with people's feelings. The conflict will appear. Two demons fighting with each other. Hannibal does it with Will and, in a sense, with others. INFJs are feelers, yes, but that doesn't mean they like the unpredictable, I can't see the link between the two. . Couldn't you make all this nonsense to sound like it's his tertiary Fi, his childhood trauma that made him an INTJ who's Te has been distorted, and he's in some kind of Ni-Fi loop or whatever that makes him want to know how other people's mind work from the inside. . You have a very strange interpretation of his motivations and you want to explain them with a tool that's not made for that. . . That's not the first time I read that, people mix everything. . She enjoys meeting people and attending social events, but with the intention to stay connected and connected to what's going on. She hates the unpredictable, does not like to be surprised by chance. Hannibal plays with chance and tries to make philosophical connections with unpredictable situations. Hannibal has an interest in a inner workings of things. He is concerned about leaving the mind of your opponent obsessed by it. It is more like Johan Liebert than Aizen. INFJ's developed with Ti can indeed exist. Many of them are confused with INTJ's or INTP's, but the problem is that they are more prisoners to find out how something works for an outside well. Hannibal demonstrations on social site are unplanned, it is only there because you think the interesting people and likes to connect with the feelings of others. He likes to eat people because it needs to taste the meat of them and, in a way, honor them and show them that you can not fool him. He was forced to eat his own sister in order to survive. It was there that he changed. It is not a control objective in the outside world. He plans just to play a game and be surprised, he loves the unpredictability of the game. Hates unpredictable, and does its best to be flexible, but even hating what is unpredictable. That is not what Hannibal wants. He is a INFJ upset with a distorted Fe and Ti developed looking for his soul mate. INFJ's are empty of himself, especially as it has developed Ti. Bryan Fuller says himself he's not a psychopath because he feels empathy and not a sociopath because he can feel regret. Saying he's INTJ doesn't simplify him more than INFJ complexifies him. As for seeing loops in him. . . to functions when MBTI is just a tool to see how people's minds process things. And just because people can't type certain persons doesn't mean they don't have a type or that the theory is invalid, they're not exceptions (I'm not talking about fictionnal characters who are often unconsistant or not developped enough. . It's a balance, and if someone is "unsane" or whatever it doesn't change his cognitive functions. . . Many people here think of functions as unrelated to one another that can be "used" (as though it was conscious. . . And if the interpretations of functions add up : whoah he uses all the functions of [insert type], that's what he is . Being socially smooth sounds Fe but it's often a superficial analysis, and the NTJ deceiver is the most logical interpretation here. You could make a case for every function there is. . . or ENTP because he is curious (Ne), and we don't see him plan much so he must not plan (Ti . . Hannibal may like the people around him because they aren't rude and are intelligent but what he sees in Will is an opportunity for a real friendship, wanting to share his world with him has nothing to do with Fe or Te. Where does that come from . And wanting to be alone after a while is introversion, whether they use Fe or not, introverts need alone time. . Pure efficiency/pragmatism Ni>Te)Hannibal the film is an INTJ with Fi and Se developed. Interestingly, on the trail, Hannibal became more isolated and showed up not too social to others. He also did not need to take a hostage with him to talk. Then made his beautiful game with Clarice, and arrived in doubt: Escape or let me be caught and get in the mind of the person I love. He preferred to run away and start all over again. Especially if they are risky. How do you think a INFJ developed with Ti should act then. He lives in social events and conversation with people. It connects with the feeling of them, supports and logical decisions or even incorrect just to see what will happen. An INTJ is known to get away and be alone in his corner after a while with others. Mainly because Fi. He made those arts to show Will you feel. He was not in full control at the end of the game. After he manages to escape thanks to Will and end one decides to save the other and Hannibal decides to kill himself after exposing art and all feeling displayed. I do not understand how this could not be a distorted Fe and Ti developed. . That's why I think he has a sexual instinct : wanting a bond with a particular person (Will), and not everyone he sees like you seem to suggest. He has dinner with people who actually know nothing about who he really is, they just see what he wants them to see. . He doesn't care about those people. . Being admired, making friends and not ennemies is purely pragmatical. The two other INTJs I have mentionned do the exact same thing : they are very social and charming, but it's only pragmatical. The character shows more than Ti Te. He makes a play to see what will happen. Not superficial -. He looks at Will is a good demonstration that the character has Fe features His need to participate in social events and parties to connect with the feelings of others is also Fe . He likes to talk to people, there is superficiality in what he does. It is not a narcissist who thinks only of himself. He does not want to get in power as these characters INTJ's. He is only demonstrating his art and the feeling it conveys. If there's a letter associated with chaos it's P and not F. . . (take the two examples I've given. . . ), His goal is to make beauty/art out of his killings, to make reality match his own extremely precise standards and tastes. . What kind of gaol exactly would he need to have for you to type him INTJ . Someone to share it with, that's not F. If anything it's a sexual instinct in the enneagram. . Every real professionnal say he doesn't fall in any category. But love the chaos it could also be something F. So much so that if you find Lucifer is typed as an ENFP, and all it does is because of the hurt Fi he had. An INTJ would be Machiavellian, would have a plan and a goal to achieve something for yourself. This is how it works Te. He makes some moves to see what happens (Ti) without an end in itself or concentration. He has no fear something will fall apart. As well as see the lives of others. It is a distorted Fe Ti with a very developed because he is a sociopath. What's pragmatic about Hannibal . That can't be a real question. As for the rest I guess a T can't be interested in people, he would have to be interested in things. . He's the devil incarnate, the source of all the chaos around him, he loves it. Wanting to share it with someone doesn't make him an feeler more than it makes him an extrovert. . . He has no anger and no one hates rude. He likes to either connect with the feelings of others and find it interesting person to eat (Fe-Ti). He wants to be surprised by his opponent wants to play with the change. He did not even know where the play with Will was the leading - kill or not to kill, indifference or empathy. The INTJ archetype is the mastermind with his long term planing : taking into account other people's reactions is necessary, but it doesn't come from a an F reasoning. It's a pragmatical behaviour (Te). . Hannibal needs to know others. He likes to be close to the people and talk to them. He likes to connect with the feelings of others, even if superficially - in which case, many INFJ's do. Only one goal led to a match of sentimental manipulation. Hannibal tried to deny Will, but realized he could not. Hannibal plays the cards to hold, without an immediate goal. Hannibal let himself die to go along with Will. '' A Fe / Fe aux sociopath manipulates the feeling of the people to achieve the goal that he wants to be reached with the intention of seeing them coming into emotional breakdown or feeling betrayed to achieve something. You may even be considered sadomasochistic. Which is in the case of Will. Daken Marvel Comics is a great example of a ENFJ sociopath; Charles Xavier has had moments like that too; Johan Liebert and Loki is also a good example. He sees an opportunity to be a cannibalistic psychopath and have a boyfriend. He can have his cake and eat it too. Hannibal has esoteric taste preferences. So why wouldn't Hannibal go to great lengths to acquire and secure his length preference for Will Graham. Not to mention his utter disregard for everyone else. He kills Abigail because he doesn't want Will to have anyone else in his life except him. He convinces Dolarhyde to go after Will's family because he wants them out of the way too. And he only keeps Dr. He wants to be the only one in Will's life and he will go to great lengths to get his way. He doesn't even care if Will reciprocates these feelings. Will later realizes he did this so that he would always know where to find him. This sounds like Fi and Se to me. I'm just showing the functions it uses, not the stereotype. If we went to the stereotype will not exist any sociopath NF. , which it uses is Ti) He likes to have control of the situation but has moments he just leaves things as they are to walk slowly. He shows no You, but You. The game with Will was clearly a set of indifference and affection. An INTJ could do that. He sacrificed his freedom to stay inside Will's mind. He let himself die along with Will. Fe it is totally distorted. The Hannibal movie like certain games, but he fights for survival first. @bobnickmad No, I don't think it's far-fetched at all. He is not emotionally sensitive. On the other hand, he does have an extremely high sensitivity to sensory stimuli. Remember when he said he could tell his teacher had stomach cancer just by his sense of smell. Based on everything I've read on narcissism and psychopathy they do not heighten the senses. So how do you explain this god-like sense of smell. You do not need to fit into all the characteristics of Highly Sensitive Person in order to be considered an HSP. You only have to meet the standard. He has perfect-pitch, an uncanny sense of smell,and he is moved by the beauty of paintings. Hannibal event thinks his murders are beautiful because he "changes" them i. He takes something he deems distasteful such as a anti-environmental politician and he turns them into something he finds tasteful. Hannibal fits enough criteria to be considered an HSP. He is a multi-faceted exception. This is what made Hannibal NBC a masterpiece. Remember he manages to be admitted as insane in an asylum just not to go to prison. Will says in the book, and TV series I believe, that he's labeled psychopath because people don't have a better word for him, but he's just a monster. Ts have feelings too, and the only times he really puts them forward is when he finds people who connect with him, who understand him, the rest of the time people are just pawns for him. Mastermind, contemplative, narcissist INTJ archetype, and has a sexual instinct (I have no idea about his enneagram though. . ["Some common signs are sensitivity to loud noises, bright or fluorescent lights, and strong smells. HSP's often describe themselves as having a rich and complex inner life. His strong sense of smell and his ability to recreate the item responsible for that smell in his mind is a result of HSP. Will also states Hannibal is not a usual psychopath. He's not insensitive. He's not shallow. But, he is not ENFJ or INFJ. He is a HSP and INTJ. ["Some common signs are sensitivity to loud noises, bright or fluorescent lights, and strong smells.

Will also states Hannibal is not a usual psychopath. He's not insensitive. He's not shallow. But, he is not ENFJ or INFJ. He is a HSP INTJ. I really don't think he's an INFJ, more so just an emotionally intelligent and socially compitent INTJ. INTJs typically aren't emotional, but that's especially true for Hannibal who, being a psychiatrist, focuses purely on his client's emotions rather than bringing in his own, both in the nature of INTJ philosophy and psychiatric professionalism. The moment of his true extraversion is more to be a social mask worn by an INTJ. He really likes to fit in and entrozar. Not all look alike, in fact. But the fact that he sacrifice his freedom, get a lot for the unpredictable, does not have many scenes in which he plans to detail does not make sense to me. Often prefer watching events to know that the unpredictable can do. He's good at relationships, I see it with lack of energy in time to fit in, and INTJ's usually prefer to stay alone, not Hannibal. The Hannibal of the game is simply to feel the feeling, it is a subtle and stylish game, it's not like what the movie and books that are isolated for a while and then back to active. And the most important difference, the book and film do not sacrifice their freedom for someone who feels something. But the fact that he sacrifice his freedom, get a lot for the unpredictable, does not have many scenes in which he plans to detail does not make sense to me. He thinks and follows the flow does not control completely. He's good at relationships, I see it with lack of energy in time to fit in, and INTJ's usually prefer to stay alone, not Hannibal. Hannibal, rather than run away and plan your recent past, attended social events in which he was seen and discovered. And the most important difference, the book and film do not sacrifice their freedom for someone who feels something. Strategist. . . It is often unpredictable and lucky. The last season has made clear his confusion; He made it clear that he sacrifices his freedom to go into Will's mind. The book is INTJ, this is xNFJHannibal manages to masterfully manipulate the human feeling and get in people's minds. Hannibal totally sacrificed their freedom, and tells Jack where to find it - in the mind of Will Hannibal says to Will: That's what I wanted for you, Will; for all of us. Hannibal is the perfect show to spot differences between INFJ (Graham) and INTJ. Hannibal is indeed one of the most obvious INTJ character you could ever find. I jokingly said What is Hannibal an INFJ now too. . I seriously hope this is some troll or else I am beginning to think INFJs are just delusional.
