Eren Yeager XSFP

“If people knew it would come to this, nobody would go to war. But most people are pushed by something, forced to march into hell. That ‘something’ wasn’t their choice. Their situation or others made them do it. But people who push their own backs see a different kind of hell. They can see something beyond the hell. It might be hope. It may even be another hell. Only those who keep moving forward will ever know.”

– Eren Jaeger

The ESFP is a lover of life and a thrill seeker who is on the lookout for new experiences, and is drawn to relationships and life in general. Their disdain for norms and regularity is defended by their belief that their purpose is to bring peace, compassion, and comfort into people’s lives. 

Remember when Eren (possesses Attack Titan, Founding Titan and Warhammer Titan) first transformed into the Attack Titan? Of course you do. Iconic moment! And his roars were something else!

Eren undergoes HUGE personality changes after the time lapse. Not many would call it character development though. Eren after the time lapse becomes socially withdrawn or even asocial which is why some people think he is an ISFP. Though I think most of us agree we miss kid Eren, the new Eren is something else.

Mikasa Ackerman ISFJ

“I’m sorry Eren. I won’t give up. I’ll never give up again. So I’ll win, no matter what! I’ll survive no matter what.” 

– Mikasa Ackerman

Mikasa, the ISFJ is a calm, shy, gentle person who is a behind-the-scenes mover and shaker who does not seek attention and prefers to remain invisible requiring just stroking from those she loves and cherishes (Ereh lol). 

The ISFJ has an extreme need to belong and will make every effort for their purpose, channelling tremendous energy and resources into their work, or indeed anything that has been asked of them. 

Mikasa is a feeling type because remember that scarf Eren put around her neck and she keeps ever so close to her heart? Some might call her a simp but actually she’s the real deal.

Deeply committed, shy, and dedicated to the cause, the ISFJ, though being timid and reserved, takes work, and indeed anything they do, very seriously, and prefers it when others do as well. Of course, how can one ever forget Mikasa’s performance in the Survey Corps!

Armin Arlert INFJ

“I don’t like the terms good person or bad person because it’s impossible to be entirely good to everyone, or entirely bad to everyone. To some, you are a good person, while to others you are a bad person.” 

– Armin Arlert

Armin is a valuable soldier because of his instincts and intellect. He might not react in the present; instead, he thinks outside the box to anticipate what the Titans or the opponent will do. 

He acquires a feeling of urgency as a result of his intuition, since he regularly foresees future events, such as comprehending that the colossal titan was looking to target Eren, although other characters thought it was retreating.

He also compels Eren to awaken, despite everyone else’s choice to protect him – this instinct sprang from the knowledge that the troops’ lives were on the line, indicating an emphasis on the future events.

Armin is definitely a feeling type as is evident in the way he goes out of his way to look out for his friends. He acts as a voice of sanity against the terrified warriors that opposed Eren, communicating his beliefs to them. 

With his charm and willpower, he is able to persuade others via feelings that are centred on others rather than himself. His moral judgments are focused on what he can do to aid his friends and fellow troops, and he plainly despises being a burden.

Levi Ackerman INTJ

“I think pain is the best discipline.” 

– Levi Ackerman

Levi (humanity’s strongest soldier) has the most painful past in AOT and pain has definitely played its part in shaping our favorite Captain Levi. The INTJ is a diligent visionary who has a clear picture of how the future should be and will work quietly and logically to make it a reality. 

The INTJ likes an intellectual challenge and will be motivated by the conceptual, abstract, and complicated, despite being fairly dark and sceptical until they have the measure of individuals. I think we can all agree that when all else fails we would look up to Captain Levi! There’s a reason why he’s called ‘humanity’s strongest soldier’. 

Erwin Smith ENTJ

“It’s us who give meaning to our comrades’ lives.” 

– Erwin Smith

Shinzou Wo Sasageyo”! Commander Erwin of the Survey Corps is the hope of mankind.

The ENTJ is a natural born leader. Erwin is self-assured, assertive, and will assume command in a variety of settings, particularly those requiring order and troop marshalling. They don’t waste time, and their straightforwardness may leave others reeling in their wake, since the ENTJ has little patience for anything vague or intrusive. 

Erwin’s death was one of the saddest moments in anime history!

Hanji Zoe ENTP

“Ever since I joined the survey corps, I’ve had people dying on me everyday. But you understand, don’t you? One day or another, everyone you care about eventually dies. It’s something we simply can’t accept. It’s a realization that could drive you insane.” 

– Hange Zoe

Despite being a little annoying at times, Hanji is a key character. Engaging, credible, and amusing, the ENTP is acutely aware of their surroundings and is always on the lookout for new ideas and opportunities to satisfy their great demand for novelty. An ENTP will be like a breath of fresh air, injecting new ideas and ways of doing things into people. Remember her titan experiments? Sawney and Bean? 

Jean Kirstein ESTJ

“The future of humanity will be doomed. Having said that, I’m not about to sit around while we all get slaughtered.” 

– Jean Kirstein

The ESTJ operates best when everyone understands the ground rules (the ESTJ will gladly develop them if they aren’t in place), and they are better at sustaining the established order. rather than radically re-creating new systems squeeze more out of current ones. 

The ESTJ will provide structure and discipline to their surroundings by being factual, accurate, precise, and process focused. Jean really doubted his abilities when he had them all along.

Connie Springer ENFP

I…want to become a soldier my mother would be proud of. So…let’s go and save some people in trouble.

– Connie Springer

The ENFP is a heady personality who wakes up in the morning wondering about all of the possibilities that the day has to offer. They thrive in coming up with new ideas and bringing a completely distinct and fresh viewpoint to people, projects, and circumstances.

The ENFP is impatient, demanding things to happen right away, not understanding the concept of delayed gratification, and is typically determined to make it so. They will seek out, nurture, and encourage others’ potential, finding the good in others and really wanting to see them flourish. Sounds much like Connie doesn’t it?

Sasha Braus ENFJ

“It’ll be fine, I’m willing to share. Oh, can you imagine the sandwiches?”

– Sasha Braus

The ENFJ is a people person who is friendly, pleasant, and passionate about individuals who simply want to ‘do good.’ They make certain that the demands of the people are prioritised, placed first on the agenda, and met. They’re great networkers who pay attention to what others want, and they’re well-liked and prominent among their peers.

They are usually located in the emotional centre of a group, and they are the ones that make certain things get done. The ENFJ, who is articulate and assertive, will be compelling and they are chosen leaders. The ENFJ is well-known for being dependable.

Sasha helps all of us bring out our inner glutton before of course she was killed by Gabi (ugh that stupid kid). No one and I mean NO ONE was prepared for Sasha’s death.

Reiner Braun ESFJ

“My sins are beyond redemption. I doubt I’ll ever forgive myself for what I did, Even if I manage to save what’s left of humanity. So, well, let’s at least save the rest of humanity.”

– Reiner Braun

The ESFJ will redirect the ESTJs passion, energy, and pragmatism into people, rather than tasks. They are cooperative, friendly, empathetic, and likeable realists, driven by a feeling of responsibility. They dislike anything ethereal or fuzzy, preferring practical answers to human concerns and will work hard to make this happen.

The ESFJ may find it challenging to make the hard decisions because of their loving nature and desire for peace. The ESFJ is strong at following through, being diligent, and making sure the plan is followed, but they may struggle with anything that seems difficult, is regarded as not reaching the desired outcome, or generates conflict or discord. This is exactly why Reiner seems so conflicted and at times confuses his two roles.

Annie Leonhart ISTP

“Going against the flow… takes a lot of courage. I respect that. Maybe people who can do it are just stupid, but… Well… What I’m sure of is that people like that are rare.” 

– Annie Leonhart

At their finest, ISTPs are good at reacting to challenges or crises, requiring minimal preparation and the ability to cut to the chase without prelude or debate with others, frequently surprising others who had incorrectly seen them as minor characters. Just like Annie surprised us by revealing herself as the Female Titan. That came as a real shock!

The ISTP doesn’t feel the need to follow social norms or connect completely with others, which can give them a remote, aloof demeanour to those who aren’t sure where they stand. ISTPs are realistic, clever, and adaptive pragmatists who thrive at understanding how things function and demonstrating rational, dispassionate analysis. Dispassionate should be Annie’s middle name.

The ISTP is clear and to the point of bluntness, and they have a tendency to step on toes at times. They speak directly, with little regard for the consequences, and they demonstrate composure under pressure, which helps them get things done but it might not endear them to others around them.

Bertolt Hoover ISFP

“It’s not a lie, Connie, Jean! It’s true we deceived you, but it wasn’t all lies! We really did think of you as friends. I know we don’t have the right to apologize, but someone, please, someone… I’m begging you… someone find us…” 

– Bertolt Hoover

ISFPs are usually silent supporters who prefer to stay behind the scenes, watching, understanding, but talking very little. There is a persistent aspect to the ISFP. Because of their tenderness and thoughtfulness, the ISFP may be an outstanding team peacemaker, seeking positive things and fostering peace. 

The drawback is that the ISFP might be too easy-going unless it is crucial to their principles. The ISFP desires and requires a cooperative atmosphere in which harmony is prioritised and conflict is minimised. Bertolt (The Colossal Titan) was deeply conflicted much like his partner Renier but he was capable of being genuinely kind.

Ymir ISFP

“Do you always want to live hiding behind the mask you put up for the sake of others? You’re you, and there’s nothing wrong with that.” 

– Ymir

The ISFP is a keen observer of life who is calm, contemplative, and compassionate. Harmony is really essential to them. And, though trust takes time to build, once it is established, the ISFP will be a firm and loyal friend. 

Getting to know an ISFP’s core values may take some time, but the result will be a lifelong companion, like Historia found in Ymir. And no cap the scene where Ymir transformed into her titan, she left us all in goosebumps. Also her titan roar was one of the most heart-wrenching ones.
