    What personality types are the villains and heroes?

    In my opinion INTJs are villains. As seen in most movies, books, the antagonist is the one who is socially detached, mysterious, mad scientist, creepy girl in horror stories, someone who has a superb knowledge in one area. He could also be an ENTJ who wants conquering the world.

    And the heroes in my opinion, usually are the SFJ types. I think superman is ISFJ. Introverted-not really mingling with many people, Sensor-he has a heightened senses like flying, spped, super strength that uses his motor skills, x-ray vision (sense of sight), sonic ear (heightened sense of hearing). He is an F because he has care for people around him and puts everybody's safety above his own. And a J, because he's an achiever, and makes sure that he saves everybody on time, and does not procrastinates.

    Any other ideas fellow PerC members?

    In my daydreams I'm always the hero.

    I see the preponderance of evidence for NTJ types cast as villians in many blockbuster films.

    The heroes have quite a wide range however.

    My ichi ban hero is Lisbeth Salander from the trilogy Millenium (Stieg Larsson) starting with "Maen som hatar kvinnor"/"The girl with the dragon tattoo". It doesn't matter if the villain is much bigger than her - she'll kick his ass! Give her a computer and she'll find any villain!

    It depends on the genre, really.
    1.Action/Mystery usually have staple heroes...the STJ "by the book" character and the STP rulebreaker are pretty typical.
    2.Romance/chick flicks make supremely clumsy NF women into heroines and usually the hero is an INTJ that she teaches to open his heart or be more spontaneous or something trite like that...unless he's a cardboard cutout SJ who's just there to look handsome and rescue her. :P
    3. Comedies are SP heroes against hardass STJ boss/principal/authority figure villains...and sometimes a nemesis of the same age who acts like the STJ boss villain
    4. Horror is weird...most are too 2 dimensional to really give any of the characters a type. The only thing you can guarantee is that one of the heroines will be a young woman who screams frequently
    5. Superheroes are all over the map...but stay pretty true to being T dominated. Batman is an INTJ, Ironman is an ENTP, Superman is an ESTJ, Spiderman is an INF*... The Joker is an ENTP...but otherwise the villains tend to stay in INTJ territory.
    6. Anime is full of INTJs, both as heroes and villains, with a few random ENFPs and INFJs tossed in to mix things up and create emotional tension

    INTJs make good villains because they are intelligent, thoughtful/good with planning, and deep/insightful. An ENTJ is just as capable, but less subtle....and that subtlety is what a lot of media likes to play on. That quiet INTJ with his fingers steepled in the corner is clearly up to something insidious. XD

    And let's face it....there are INTJs who love the stereotype of being anti-social and without any common decency whatsoever ....which kind of feeds back into the "guy who will eventually snap and build a superweapon" idea of villainy. (In fact, those are probably the INTJs that struggled so much with socialization they just said "screw it, I don't WANT to have friends anyway!"...but I'm going on a tangent and this post is long enough)

    I am Batman. Oh wait:

    I am Shinigami.

    INTJ - the anti-hero.

    I always found INTJs make the best anti-heroes :) They have a cause they fight for, but not in the mainstream heroic way, they do it in the new, exciting way, regardless of their own feelings.
    Two examples off the top of my head:
    Lelouch (Code Geass)

    Generally, there is less prevalence of NT - Rationals in the world and quite far less introverted Rationals. Writers of movies and books most often times want the viewer/reader to identify with the hero and henceforth must choose the more common of types. Thus, leaving the less personally-identifiable Rationals as the more common villains. There is such a high prevalence of INTJ villains that it is astounding. However, it does seem that the public is entranced whenever an INTJ converts to the hero side of the story. People seem to obsess over such characters as Batman or Sherlock Holmes for their eccentricities and minds.
