Character Typing

Six of Crows MBTI

Hi… so I finished SOC and CK and though they made me suffer as a reader, I do have typings for the squad. These are preliminary typings and I will definitely not be going back to revisit for the sake of accuracy. These are just the impressions I got from mostly reading and a bit of skimming to get through the duology. I’ll mostly just dispute that Kaz is ENTJ not INTJ because honestly I didn’t care about the characters all too much in this series. I’m all about correcting NTJ stereotypes tho.

Spoilers for Crooked Kingdom below because I can’t bare to go back and remember SOC.

Kaz – ENTJ

  • I disagree with everyone who automatically types this boy as INTJ because coughs brooding bad boy INTJ stereotype is so old… I’m done with it. And being an INTJ myself, I would say about Kaz the same thing I’ve said about Jumin Han – his primary goal is to get shit done which reeks of dominant Te. Kaz tends to act first and get stuff done then ask questions later. He’s choosing specific actions (Te) to get what he wants (what auxillary Ni envisions) rather than the other way around as an INTJ would.
    • Kaz has a good quote (yes, I admit there are a couple of CK lines I actually liked that shows his dom Te) When he and Wylan break into van Eck’s place they have the convo: “You’re not weak because you can’t read. You’re weak because you’re afraid of people seeing your weakness. You’re letting shame decide who you are. Help me with the painting.”
  • Kaz’s primary struggle in this series is showing mercy on those who wronged him or something (again I didn’t read too carefully because of my hatred distaste for the writing but I’m sure it’s somewhere in his arc). Wylan and Inej serve as foils or morality guides with their dominant Fi to Kaz’s dom Te. Their interactions urge him to embrace his Fi.
    • When Jesper asks who’s Jordie, Kaz mcfreakin’ snaps and it’s really obvious to everyone, showing that he’s got a short emotional fuse – which is understandable since feeling is his lowest function. INTJs would be better at hiding their emotional outbursts in my opinion.
  • Not to be all shippy with the mbti typings because people of any type can get along fairly well, but this would make sense why his interactions with Inej and Wylan are like the strongest if we go by the ExTJ x IxFP dynamic being a nice pair off. Again, this is just my opinion.

Inej – ISFP

Jesper – ESTP

Matthias – ISTJ

  • Honestly the ESTP-ISTJ dynamic Jesper and Matthias had going on was really (A-OK SIGN). Given their almost Zuko-Katara backstories – Matthias, whom I begrudgingly will admit LB did incorporate some Zuko into his character, and Jesper basically having Katara’s tragic backstory – I kinda ship it. Jetthias it is and Jetthias so it shall be.

Nina – ENTP

Wylan – INFP

Kuwei – idk Wylan was Kuwei longer than Kuwei was Kuwei.

Yuri!!! on Ice: Yuuri Katsuki (ISFP)

I think it’s sort of the consensus that Yuuri is ISFP, but for the sake of completion (Vikturi pair) here we go. *Spoilers for the entire series*

Fi – Yuuri needs time alone to process his emotions. He also thinks about his feelings in terms of himself. He may not be aware of how he comes across to others e.g. Minami while he’s stewing over his internal dilemma. He has a more subdued way of expressing his feelings vs. Vik who is outright affectionate (dat Fe).

Se – From Viktor’s POV in the proposal episode, he observes the way that Yuuri was always looking for the right something, indicating that Yuuri is comfortable with sampling his external environment in the moment.

It’s noted several times in the series that Yuuri is in his element when he moves with the music during a performance. He’s willing to take risks like changing the jumps in his program on the fly.

Yuuri also has a tendency to stress eat from pressure before competitions.

Ni -Yuuri struggles to grasp a concept for Eros and needs to use katsudon to help him focus.

Yuuri thinks quite a bit about his future regarding his retirement from skating. Yuuri also sees the implication of his bad performance on Vik’s reputation. He thinks a lot about how he can’t keep Viktor away from the skating world and about the skating world without Vik.

Te – Yuuri makes some callous remarks in his internal monologue at the Nationals after he and Vik have that moment in the parking garage because LOL Vik’s methods didn’t exactly work. So his grip Te activates and does what’s effective in his moment of Te grip clarity?? We see this again in the finale internal monologue when Yuuri skates Yuri on Ice when he talks about Yurio being an idiot for using up his stamina or smth.

Yuuri wants to add more quads to his routine to match JJ’s difficulty score – basically to get the job done and get dat marriage medal. Unfortunately, this plan backfires because he focuses too much on the technique rather than playing his stregnths and he’s unable to skate his best Eros in the penultimate episode.

A rather amusing example of his Te is where he tells Vik to take him sightseeing (more overplayed in the Eng dub, but I thought it was cute) because nah he got a plan to relax with his bae in Barcelona.
