    Gandalf is not warm, fuzzy, or overly emotional. Therefore not an INFJ.

    got it

      Gandalf is an INTJ. Therefore not an INFJ.

      Gandalf is an ESFP. Therefore not an INTJ.

    Gandalf the White seems INTJ.

    Grey, however, seems more INFJ/INTP tbh. Definitely more Ti/Fe than Te/Fi in this form.

      Ah, so not only did it enhance his wardrobe and magical ability but also his personality.

      I mean yeah he's completely reborn. He's wiser and more powerful but noticeably less whimsical and solely focused on the outcome. The book goes into great detail on how different he is.

      It's always made more sense to me to type Grey and White separately. Like  Anakin and Vader have different types too.

      Finally someone who sees Grey as INTP and White as INTJ.

      He kinda have that INTP look and humor first.

    Why Te-Fi over Fe-Ti?

    He's hard to type considering him being a Maiar and have lived for like 1000+ years. In the book he took like 20+ years to learn about the ring of power. I'd say he's a Ti user considering he's taken so long in diving deep into some knowledge, probably Ne got him distracted by the archives of Gondor, lol. I think he's an INTP.

    INTJ not INFJ. He's not a total dick, but he's still an INTJ. Just contrast him with Dumbledore.

      Hmm... I was certain when I made this comment but now I can’t remember why.

      They do have a lot of the same sarcastic mannerisms. They do seem quite a like.

    He seems INTP for more of the storyline than INTJ, but he is never INFJ.

      Well I'm including The Hobbit as part of the storyline. If you don't then I can see how you'd get more INTJ.

      I actually sort of think Gandalf’s biggest character flaw comes from his strongly perceiving nature. He takes things as they come. He’s largely reactive, not proactive. This bites him HARD when he realizes that the ring Bilbo has is The One Ring, and effectively has to scramble for a last minute solution. As a Guardian Angel, Gandalf sorta plays it fast and loose. Its part of why the character is sort of a fun take on the Merlin archetype, but It’s also part of the reason why the fate of Middle Earth becomes the responsibility of a couple of Hobbits in the first place. For all his bluster and occasional rage, Gandalf isn’t very controlling and likes to keep his options open perhaps a little too much.

    Seems like a fully matured INFJ that can actually use their Ti and Se. The real INTJ is Saruman.

      You're always hilarious when you type character you like as INFJ because you think being one.
      i don't know if it's cute or just pathetic

      Pretty much, yeah, Khel. Especially if you try to understand to the moral landscape Tolkien might've been trying to paint. Too many Te-Fi types (Sauron and Saruman) on the side of the bad guys. If they are on the good side like Elrond they tend to have Si instead of Ni.

      Saruman seemingly was motivated by his fear of loss of power - or something like that. Whereas Gandalf wasn't as convinced and instead chose to assist whatever Middle Earth forces wanted to stop the forces of evil as a wise but seemingly lowly Wizard. It might be hard but one can somewhat make out the Fe based motivations of Gandalf seeing his choice to protect the welfare of Middle Earth over succumbing to his fear of weakness.

    "No, no no no! Do not be a fool, Bilbo, if you can help it."
    seems pretty INTJ to me.
