Find out about L personality type

. 8w7 because he can be a bit childish pokes fun to get your reaction. This happened alot when he try to test Light reaction to see if he actually fits the profile of Kira.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of L. So I think it fits L very well. @kkdvk w4 because he's dramatic, morose, self-deprecating, describes his motives as more about competition over authentic justice (image triad, sx 4 = competition) and himself as a "monster.Which of the 16 personality types is L?. Well. He's certainly more of an INFP than the OTHER famous fictional INTP super-detective :PWhoever vote L being extrovert, it is recommended that you revise the meaning of introvert and extrovert. I do not have many memories of this point of the character, which made me think it was more for '' my justice '', thus counteracting to Kira. But even if it were like Fi, as has been said, inferior Fe can do so. It's not a sense of justice. Figuring out difficult cases is my hobby. The same way you all like to solve mysteries and riddles, or clear video games more quickly. For me too, it's simply prolonging something I enjoy doing. It's not justice at all. And if it means being able to clear a case, I don't play fair, I'm a dishonest, cheating human being who hates losing. In fact he doesn't pay much attention to things like rightness as it is revealed in tome 13 'how to read it'. During all the case he didnt stop lying, even his "The probability of Light being Kira is 6%" was a lie, in fact he always thought about 90+ %, but maybe didn't he have the confidence yet to claim it. I understand why some people see L as INFP. He has a strong moral sense of justice, that what is right and what is wrong and it motivates you to continue behind Kira. Yes, this seems Fi. However . . . INFP intellectual's and INTP's can act much like what differentiates them is the ego that drives them, what makes me fall again for INFP, because it seems that it is moved more by the belief of his own conception of justice than logical challenges . Once I talked to my friend about INTP L, and even said he found L of the fool to expose and create an emotional bond with Raito. But I still see INTP, it is the best representation of an INTP detective, I can not just see it as INFP even though such a connection. For me what else comes close INFP is Mello, who idealized strongly L as God, who admitted being sentimental in certain decision-making and that he needed to live up to L work and get recognition as best detective - though I think that Mello is ENFP. Agreed with the lack of conformation bias. . . . . . (Just look at how many times he said "there is xx% chance that Light is a Kira", for example. . . . ) His cerebral attitude is only further enhanced by (again, pretty clear-cut) 5-ness. Withholding his personal information to the extreme degree, tendency toward genuine detachment and analysis, etc, are very much 5. . . Confirmation bias is more associated with Pi functions than anything. I would say that L has actually an extremely low amount of confirmation bias though. It's not that he *wants* to confirm that Light is Kira, but he has no other plausible suspects and he realizes that there is no conclusive evidence against Light. This kind of behavior is perfectly consistent with both INTP and INFP. Neither types like to use numbers to determine health of a society, especially when paired with Ne which makes sure to be open to there being many other factors which can’t be contained in one number. Is the low crime rate worth the side effects of a self-demonstrated immature person possessing an unchecked kill-switch for everyone. Many people mistype L for INTP as a result of not understanding that brain power simply does not equate to T. Remember personality type is a measure of tendency, not intellectual or physical capabilities. Let's look at how L does things: L judges using right vs wrong as a basis, not what's better than another. His deductions often involve heavy confirmation bias, as he speculates Light to be Kira the instant things broke out and spends half of the series trying to confirm the assumption he had made. All his reasonings are fundamentally centering around "humanity", which is precisely why he is thoroughly against Kira even though the latter has successfully eliminated 70% of crime rates in mere 3 years. L's objection to Kira stems solely from the fact that he views Kira's method being inhumane and too extreme for human society, and stands by his statement to the very end despite the many data that seem to suggest that Kira is actually beneficial to the society. L is incredibly quick in picking on hints, meanings and understanding human behaviours and relationships. Pretty clear that Extroverted Initiation is his secondary function. It is suggested to be the case of an overly developed Introverted Sensing which is about recalling the past experiences in an efficient manner. It is most likely his 3rd function as he was trained heavily in the past to obtain such level of memory, unlike the previous 2 functions mentioned above which both seem to be very native to his ego. He is always shown to be in a mess, his lifestyle is a mess, his diet is a mess, his appearance and "fashion sense" (if we can call it that) are a mess, and his thoughts are always in a mess unless he is eating sweets. He even go as far to state that it is necessary for him to be curling up in a ball and consuming sweets non-stop when he is thinking, otherwise he will not be able to concentrate. The fact that L is actually able to consciously do Extroverted Thinking suggests that he is an INFP and not an INTP. Because for INTPs, Extroverted Thinking is a shadow function, meaning it is either completely absent in the said person or something that exists only in the sub-conscious level which thus can not be trained in any way, but might appear in later stage of life. Which is why judging by the function analysis above that, L is very likely an INFP. Even if he is not an INFP, he would not be an INTP either. You people don't understand the difference between Ne, and Ni. He's pretty much the poster boy of an INTP. Not 100% anymore. Either someone had a stroke or they're trolling. Seriously though. . . 100%. No I actually think he is a clear example of an ESFJ :0No I actually think he is a clear example of an ESFJ :0Not one person has voted anything but INTP. What a clear cut example of an INTP lol.
