I finally got around watching Code Geass sometimes ago. It was a chore to watch. 6w5 sx/so leading. 4w3 and 1w2.

MBTI type of Lelouch Lamperouge

. "You know immediately how to deal with a situation" has the key word "know". P's don't "know" as much how to do stuff beforehand, because they rely more on figuring out how to on the spot, which is actually not quite as immediate.

. This isn't meant to imply that "no J's can improvise" or that "P's know nothing", but read any description comparing J's and P's. It's just a preferred method of dealing with things.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Lelouch Lamperouge. As for generals, how do you become a general. You rise through the hierarchy by being TJ, mainly.Which of the 16 personality types is Lelouch Lamperouge?. I also really hope that you don't think that playing chess and gambling is something he legitimately saw as a pathway to changing the world. It seemed like he both had strongly held internal beliefs, coupled with basically just a desire for stimulation, which he probably would've done nothing with had he not gained those superpowers. You can't observe someone like pre-Geass Lelouch in real life and actually think that everything he did was geared at some sort of goal. Nah he was just a perceiver with strong feelings about stuff who made a vow which he maybe didn't forget but he sure wasn't doing much about. Just like i explained on Chrollo's page there are two untrue stereotypes that are recurrent : 1 - NTJs necessarily deal better with the future than NTP 2 - NTP necessarily deal better with improvisation than NTJ. First improvisation has more to do with Te than with Ne or Se. I think Te, as a judging thinking function, has the perfect balance between logic, quickness that makes ETJ most prone to rapidly take the good decision. (reason why most generals in history are ExTJ, as it needs to rapidly read correctly the battlefield and react accordingly). I'll finally add concerning this point that while Lelouch deals perfectly well with unpredicted situations that's not what's he intentionally looks for, most of the time he has things set up and programmed beforehand but the circumstances are always against him. Secondly, about the performance under pressure, while it is stated that ENTP are less stressed generally than ENTJ, it is also true that the latters are more confident in their abilities even arrogant (generally the two types score among the least stressed types and the most confident/arrogant tho). As for Lelouch's behavior as a student, one should consider the context. He's put so high standards on himself that attending classes arent an enough motivational activity J or not J. If he had to lose time (because thats perfectly what school was) better use it on some pursuits that could actually improve his skills (chess and tactical ability or gambling when he lost his memories), because school crearly hadn't something to teach to him. For all these reasons my vote for him goes to ENTJ. his perceiving is a more apparent, as he's very adaptable to different situations and gets that perceiving thrill of being able to come up with a new, unexpected way of approaching a sticky situation that can only be found in an ne user like lelouch. the 6w5 consensus seems kinda silly to me too. he's visibly excited about the action he gets into, and an 8 wing would explain his assertive and assured behavior on the battlefieldI see the comment from ZRX-26 saying that he is a turbulent judger. I think it's actually the opposite (an assertive perceiver). I think the addition of this extra dimension does help to make someone like him more understandable from a personality model, as assertiveness/turbulence is often dealt with by function magicians by treating NJ/SP as assertive and NP/SJ as turbulent, probably without even realizing what a mess they are making out of MBTI by doing so. In the 16 personalities quiz, I got INTP-A, with the weakest preferences being introversion (67%) and prospecting/perceiving (64%). I took the 25 quiz pretending I was him and came up with 1. ENTP 2. Predicting the future is not really specific to NTJ over NTP, and his commanding style is extremely spontaneous and adaptive to the current situation, not like NTJs can't but that seems to be where he thrives the most. His style of playing chess is also intentionally unconventional which seems very NP, and he really only shows his true capabilities under pressure. Yes he can be decisive when needed but he's mainly someone who prefers to keep things open. Imagine that, an NTP who can actually accomplish things. Within a note, CP 6w5s are resembling 8w9s on their surface and, certainly, Lelouch is not instinctual, not naturally intrepid and more resentful than revengeful which are traits that discard a 8, let us remember that enneagram is moved by principles and motivations rather than behaviors. I agree with the INTJ on the left, but Lelouch as an 8. Lelouch isn't even a gut type. Clearly in his head all the time, he has to be a thinking type. 6's primary negative emotion is fear(Fight or Flight). Phobic 6's tend to flee while counter-phobic 6's tend to fight. Lelouch also has all the paranoia and trust issues of a typical 6w5. "YOU BETRAYED MEEEE," and all that. "Have a "tip of the iceberg" quality - they show little but you sense hidden dimensions, intensity and activity. " Lelouch is all about keeping himself reserved so that others can't find his weaknesses. " Lelouch always runs to hide in his batcave at Ashford until he can come up with some master strategy. 6ish worry and 5ish information addiction each in turn. At least Ne is more adept at dealing with improvising on the spot, if not the most physically focused. Why would you think an INTP would be comfortable with tackling physical situations like he is. If that's your argument he would be more of an ENTJ or ISTP, not INTP. But he's too idealistic to be either types, so INTJ, an idealised INTJ tough, as I don't see an INTJ being that confident irl as him either, but I definitey see it over INTP, as INTJ are more decisive. Everything you say is possible for an xNTP, Sthereo0. It's more situational things that put him in a situation where the whole world is like a chessboard for him. He can't afford to "test out" things. He has only one chance. But he confidently tackles the unknown in a way that INTJs aren't really comfortable with. You can see how he is entertained when unexpected developments happen which really isn't something that will happen with INTJs or even INTPs. He tries to transpire rationality, but it is quite explosive and has a huge idealistic vision that at times end up overshadowing some of its plans. He is charismatic and knows how to create an air of splendid theatricality, which is more common in INFJ's than INTJ's. Well, all N types are future-oriented, just in different ways. An INTJ generally is constantly asking "what is the ideal future, and how do I make it happen. " These thoughts just don't seem to be a large part of his mental makeup, to the point where he often is just fighting for fragments of personal significance, and to win. And the fragments are arguably used as excuses for continuing to play his dangerous game, even if there is some sincerity behind them, which seems about right for an NTP. Meh, I'm keeping my ENTP vote; it needs at least some representation here. His Ni is clearly surfaced and dominant. Being an INTJ, I can't really relate to whatever his cognitive process is. Maybe it's because he's nuts but he just seems so self-absorbed, not so much in making the world a better place, but just in looking at the world as his toybox, sort of like Hisoka with a half of a soul, spontaneously adjusting to whatever the hell is going on around him but with rather shallow undeveloped goals. Maybe it's just cause he's so irritating with his playful cockiness with the world's future at stake. And, about those comments of Zero being ENTJ. The thing very appealable from type Zero's persona is the enneagram, that seems something like a 3 or a 1w9. Why 8w7 and not 8w9. Isn't his purpose at the end to, aftermatch, make the world live in peace taking away all the world's hate with him. He's not looking for power within it as whole purpose, he's looking for power to stablish world's peace, he doesn't get stimulated by challenges and new experiences, so 8w7 is highly discardable. Nevertheless, most of the time we see he's mainly engaged with logic, so he's T over F. He and Kira are two INFJ's showing a well developed Ti. Are INTJ 7 a real phenomenon. 7 seems like Ne doms. i dont fully understand wing 9the 7th wing is about entertainment seeking can somebody please make any rational argument as to how he has more 8w9 votes than 8w7 or even 7w8 also its sx/sp he cares for his inner circle of people(his sister) more than himself. An INTJ with social skills and was well developed, but, unlike Raito, he had a vision of more Ni-Fi world, sacrificing himself for a future that he sees that it is better and less oppressive, denying control everything, but so creating the future and leaving everything in the hands of who he thinks he can follow through with your plan. If you actually watched the show (as I did) You'll know that while he is a popular, attractive person desired by many of his peers for social interaction, he is practically socially inept. He can barely, if not actually realize if people like him or want to go out with him, and what's more, he never prefers socializing with a large group of people to being with one or two people. I understand the typing of Zero as ENTJ, but honestly, ENTJs lack the practically bombastic vision INTJs have, which Lelouch, who is Zero, has in spades. I also believe him to be INTJ for the reason of his Fi. Other than that, he is stone cold emotionally, being why INTJ makes so much sense. Yes his Thinking style seems more of the seeing results and outwardly empirical anti-abstract nature of Te dominated by Ni vision that he has spent time contemplating (I'd say even before he received the Geass). There are a lot of scenes where we can see that Lelouch is Te and not really Fe. For example, when he tried to convince Suzaku to join him, he used a logical reasoning instead of an emotionnal reasoning, and he didn't really understand why Suzaku refused because he cannot understand his feelings, he sees things in a purely logical view. I'm sticking with INTJ, he is not reliant on personal manipulation but more behind the scenes and impersonal manipulation. Maybe, I'm thinking inFj like the other people I've listed. Look at the way he interacts with the other kids at the school. He's an introvert at the very least. Other powerful mastermind villains/antagonists Lelouch may be like: Makishima Shogo: ENTP. Johan Liebert: INFJ. Yakomaru: ENTP. & by that logic, him at school and at home: entp (I've read this somewhere too). He is likely a Fe user. Not so confident about the enneagram type.

ENFP type 7w8. Too sporadic to be Ni imo.

ENTP seems better

Zero: ENTP Lelouch: xNTJ

Why 8w9?  He's clear 8 w7.

I agree with DiamondDust in that Lelouch is a P type. He is definitely not a Feeler though. He is more of an ambivert thinker, probably leaning to the introvert direction although he does have this need for stimulation which implies extraversion. I also agree with Ryugan and DiamondDust that he's way, way more 7 than 9. I don't know how you could actually have enough of a brain to figure out how to make an account, and see more 9 than 7 in him. Even before he gained superpowers he prioritized relieving boredom.

It's all clear now, the non-belivers think he's a nine because he sacrificed himsef. But.. He didn't, he's alive!

Haha why would 9's sacrifice themselves though? They are more likely to sacrifice opportunities to change things so they can sit back and lead a lazy life. Side note: I thought he was INTP before (more undecided on E vs I than anything), but the lack of actual self-sacrificing behavior disarms a J argument.

I going with the thought that self sacrifice would be contradictory to type 7 so I just went the other way, but I guess you're right now that I think about it lol.

He is an INTJ with social mask. Lelouch is Very strategic, tactic, visionary and concetred Guy.. He is not random like Izaya or L

An INTJ as Masquerader. How complicated his life. Lelouch vi Britannia(True self): INTJ Zero: ENFJ Julius Kingsley: ENTP Get done.

I prefer when the comments were blank on this page. Now it is soiled by intellectual semen.

How about pictures?

INTJ 458 tritype

INTJ’s easy. Grand Ni vision and goals, ruthless pragmatism of auxiliary Te, occasional wrestling with Tertiary Fi, pitiful lack of Se athleticism and ability to adjust plans with too many rapidly shifting factors. Enneagram’s trickier, definitely gut triad. I struggled with 1w9 so/sx vs 8w7 so, but finally settled on the latter. Lelouch doesn’t self criticize as much as a 1 in his situation would, he really doesn’t feel a need to follow rules and just generally gives off a more expansive energy than 1w9. The confusion comes from his outrage at Britannia, but it’s an Eightish “the strong shouldn’t pick on the weak” idea rather than a Oneish idea. Plus, his power of Geass is so Eightish by nature.  INTJ 8w7 so/sx or so/sp.

Vision isn't really J, more like N. J would have a more static organized vision though, while P would see things more dynamically as Lelouch does. "Ruthless pragmatism" just sounds like the result of seeing things in a very clear, logical yet individual (against group values) way, which probably best translates to INTx. He doesn't have a pitiful ability to adjust plans with too many rapidly shifting factors. In fact that's what he does the whole show. He has a general idea of where he wants to be and is often backed into a corner where he comes up with a strategy spontaneously. The debate should be about INTP vs ENTP  really. Also he's the letter P in the official MBTI test. I got 67% P by answering questions how I would expect him to, even feeling like I was being generous for J with certain things that seemed more environmentally based rather than personality based.

"Also he's the letter P in the official MBTI test. I got 67% P by answering questions how I would expect him to"   You got me convinced 100% thanks to this  implacable argument

All_in......Sarcasm detected.  scotty...If you’re not aware, I was typing by Jungian functions, which you don’t seem to be. If you’re going by what I call armchair Myers-Briggs,(the kind you find on most websites) that’s fine. In that case, your reasoning goes something like “Lelouch spends a lot of time alone but he’s a great leader and has several friends; E and I too close to call. Big vision = N, Lelouch is logical over emotional, T, Lelouch is flexible on the battlefield with his plans = P; Therefore, Lelouch = xNTP. Personally, I’ve rejected that system in favor of the less stereotypical and more nuanced Jungian functions. If you’re not familiar with them, I’d highly recommend reading up. Until I discovered them and the Enneagram, no personality system really reflected truth for me. Now they do. Maybe you’ll discover new sides of yourself, as I did.  Or maybe you already know about the functions and don’t like the system; though I find that unlikely given your misunderstanding of my post. For anyone reading who’s interested in the difference and doesn’t know already... Armchair MBTI: INTJ— I = Intoverted, N = Intuitive, T = Thinking, J = Judging By contrast, in Jungian Function theory, all 16 types have 2 extraverted functions and 2 introverted functions, 1 sensing, 1 intuitive, 1 thinking, 1 feeling. The type merely reflects the order of preference (so there’s no need for “I’m NEITHER, E nor I, I’m an AMBIVERT,” complaints). Jungian Function theory: INTJ—Ni (Introverted Intuition), Te (Extraverted Thinking), Fi (Introverted Feeling), Se (Extraverted Sensing). In this system, an INTP or ENTP has completely different functions and tremendously different thought process than an INTJ. Jungian INTP—Ti (Introverted Thinking), Ne (Extraverted Intuition), Si (Introverted Sensing), Fe (Extraverted Feeling) Descriptions of these functions go far beyond the stereotypes in the armchair system, such as “Es like to party, Is don’t, S like details, N likes big picture, T is logical, F is emotional,” and so on. Some of the stereotypes can be true but they paint in such broad strokes that people get easily confused about what they’re like. My dad refused my last test of him in which he came out as ISFJ because he’s “not a feeler.” He sees all MBTI Feeling types as warm-hearted, but essentially, illogical and irrational due to shallow stereotypes. Sadly, because of the pervasiveness of armchair MBTI, he has a hard time understanding that ISFJs use Extraverted Feeling, which is, when healthy, a perfectly rational and useful way of processing and relating to the world, as are all the 8 functions. Sorry for the rant, but I spend a lot of time on this stuff because I believe people would understand one another (and themselves) better if they knew more about these systems.

Good to see we understand each other on the MBTI point. As for what you are calling "the less stereotypical and more nuanced Jungian functions", it's hard to disagree more, even just with that phrase. "Grand Ni vision", "ruthless pragmatism", etc. What are those if not stereotypes? Nuanced - I don't really understand this one. Why should nuance be desired here? And the "nuance" of The Functions I mainly find in vaguely written archetypes, in a way that allows them to be bent in ways that allow them to bebent around people, rather than describing people in ways that differentiate 16 unique personalities. There is a ton of overlap in The Functions, different descriptions, and typing by them inherently subjective and lacking clarity in the boundaries between types.  Two different people typing using the same function descriptions can sometimes even come up with results that share no functions in common (for example INTP vs INTJ). But not only that but the function descriptions vary from site to site, person to person, so what I end up seeing is people creating their own stereotypes of what each function means (such as "grand vision") and ending up with a result that is no more meaningful than the letters, only way less clear and way more subjective. As for the idea of "Jungian function theory", you are using the wrong name. It's not Jung but rather Harold Grant who is usually credited for the 4-function model that you described. Jung did have his own function model and also 8 types, but never connected them to MBTI like that at all. And if you were trying to link his 8 types to MBTI types you'd have to flip the P/J for introverts, seeing as he clearly defined Pi types as those who lacked judging, not those who preferred it. And if you were to find Jung's type that best fits Lelouch, you'd probably be looking at the Extraverted Intuitive. Still, there's no such thing as a Jungian INTP, or Jungian INTJ, or Jungian ENTP.      

Scotty, but he is very focused, objective, organized, sequential, and natural strategic and HATES IMPROVISATION and loses control that is more Ni Te than Ti Ne. An xNTP would be more randomly and improve... The thing is he seem very spontaneous, but, why not ENTJ so? 

@Strawberry Those letters look beautiful when you write them.

Strawberry, I think you don't know how psychodinamics and cognitive hierarchy works

Thank you, dude. Chaotic—I don’t, but at least I don’t pretend to know.

Thanks for the additional information, scotty. The deeper I go into personality typology, the less I feel I understand, whether it’s Socionics or what you’re referring to. I’m interested in this stuff partly for real life application but mostly for literary creations. That is, using them as a tool for constructing dialogue and making characters sound different, giving them discomfort in certain situations a la inferior functions, etc.  And I’ll admit to stereotyping Ni; that’s easily the function I understand least, in any model.

Harbinger19 I think characters are generally more interesting when the concept is more based on a unique insight into psychology rather than trying to fit 1 of 16 archetype models. Not like that has to be the case but if everyone is using the same idea to create characters it gets pretty stale.

@Harbinger : Definintely usable, but rather either use it for a general frame of character that you'd twist around to make it less stale ; either use tiny elements associated with different types to add color to the character. MBTI isn't the greatest tool to create characters tbh, but for secondary ones, it can be useful, and still better than Hogwarts houses (if you only knew how many people use those whne they create characters :B)

I think it's the silliest thing that our favorite INTJ poster boy isn't actually an INTJ at all. It's a consequence—I believe—of people imagining the "INTJ" archetype and fitting Lelouch into that, distorting his character and the things he stands for so much that I can't help but imagine people misinterpret so much about Code Geass in the process of doing so. Lelouch isn't remotely judging in all honesty! In fact, his entire outlook is founded upon his seeing the world through lenses colored by futility and transcience. Compare him to Suzaku, his "mirror character," who wants to work from within the system to bring out a future Lelouch also sought, except Lelouch understood Suzaku's naïvete in wanting to change things without change things. It's only a way of thinking that is compatible with Lelouch's fickle and adaptable nature; it doesn't make sense to type Lelouch with a letter that stands for a set of traits that aren't just absent from but also against how he operates.  Lelouch bets on chance very often, even though you're rarely directly alluded to that. He verbalizes his thought process (to the audience) and gives off somewhat of an illusion that he's J through how he "closes in on an option" after looking over certain possibilities and logically working through them but the point is that he isn't really "closing his options" like a judger would do so. Had Lelouch been doing anything like that, he would be getting hung up on the singularity of his decisions and planning his battles ahead of time… but Lelouch excels in his position because he's anything but that way.  I also kind of don't understand why Lelouch is voted an introvert either. When does he really show "introversion"? He might be misanthropic to an extent but he doesn't really move away from people at all, and his wiki page describes him as outgoing; I really don't think that's a stretch.  In Big 5 terms, Lelouch would score high on excitement-seeking, activity, assertiveness, and would be maybe about average in gregariousness if not higher than average. He might be less than average on positive emotions and warmth but I actually don't think he'd be so low here either? In MBTI terms, he would be enthusiastic (rather than quiet), active (rather than reflective) and probably more ambivalent on initiating/receiving, expressive/contained, and gregarious/intimate, but I do think that should be enough to push him over the line to the extravert category. Lelouch really only shows an "introverted" side at all because of his distrust of people. I don't really think I would even consider him being I if he didn't have a negative view of people. Lelouch is an ENTP! I guess 8w7 works, but he's really not far from 7w8 either.

I see ENTP tbh. I think most people think INTJ because function wise he seems to have Ni-Te.
