INTP 8w7 Characters – The 3 Heroes

Let us take a look at the 3 characters one by one!

Bruce Banner – The Avengers

Bruce is definitely the one for the ladies because he is extremely smart and well mannered at the same time. He has a lot to show off but still keeps to himself! He is the perfect combination of being shy and confident because at the first look you will notice he is quiet and possibly even shy but when he needs to speak up to ask questions or explain what exactly is going on – he is a scientist in the movie – he does not hesitate.

Even when it comes to his personality, Bruce is not necessarily optimistic although he is a scientist. He bends towards the pessimistic side and this is seen especially when he is with Thor on a foreign planet and he knows that at any moment he may turn into The Hulk and stay like that and hence lose control.

He also gets anxious quickly and this is because he is pessimistic. These personality types are generally quiet and will not speak up too much nor do they like to come under the spotlight.

Alice – Alice In Wonderland

She is another great example of this personality type because although she may seem harmless she is indeed a warrior and will pick up arms when she has. The character from Alice In Wonderland is yet another well mannered girl who is mostly on the quiet side and will let others do the talking. They prefer to stay quiet and not speak up much, however when the time comes they do not shy away from asking the questions that need to be asked – this can be seen in the dialogue between Alice and the Red Queen.

Furthermore, Alice is indeed someone who goes after what she wants which also represents the type 8 personality in her. She won’t let anyone – even the Mad Hatter come in between her and her goals.

Neo – The Matrix

Although Neo may not be as well outspoken as the previous two characters, he is indeed a brave character from the movie series ‘The Matrix’ who does not shy away from going after the bad guys. He will be someone who is seen as a quiet and shy guy who is not quite talkative but has enormous potential to fight off the enemy. He is charming despite his quiet nature and knows how to get what he wants – he can be persuasive and change his personality to one that is demanding or confrontational when the time arises.

Now that we have presented the characters who are often associated with the type INTP 8w7 personality, let us look at the components that make up their personality.

8w7 Enneagrams – Nonconformists

The 8w7 enneagram type shares most of its traits with the 8 type enneagram but also has some traits from the wing 7 too. This enneagram is generally comfortable with conflicts that they may face and this is because they are confident, independent and quite ambitious! They persevere in their path and do not let others get in the way. Furthermore, they may be quiet but when the time comes they will speak up and defend their own stance or those of others. 

Although they wander much around in their mind, these enneagram types are also great at handling people and taking practical steps. They make the right decisions and prefer to do so on their own without much interference. Apart from thinking clearly and logically, they are creative and like to test innovative ideas! They go the extra mile when it comes to establishing goals or milestones that they want to achieve. They are big dreamers and quite idealistic in their vision. They want to create a world or society where people can go big or go home. They want to help others achieve their own dreams by ensuring no one creates hurdles for them.

This enneagram type, however, is afraid of losing their own autonomy and maybe this is why they are so independent because they want to assure themselves that they can handle most matters on their own. At the same time, these individuals also struggle when it comes to being emotionally honest or vulnerable. They will try to ignore their own emotions or what they feel because they are either too afraid of facing them or just want to focus on what is going on in the external world. They won’t even let anyone too close as they do not want to become emotionally or mentally vulnerable.

This enneagram type has however developed great people skills and can become effective and inspirational leaders. They are open when it comes to sharing their thoughts and opinions about certain matters with others – they do not care about what others will think. They are comfortable creating connections with others and can easily do so.

However, this enneagram does have some weaknesses. They will have difficulty in following instructions from authority figures and they are impatient at times. They may overindulge in themselves or their work and may become insensitive to the feelings of others. 

The Basic Fear – 8w7s

This enneagram type fears being controlled and manipulated by others. They are scared they will become helpless or weak to the extent that others will tell them what to do and how to do it – something which is against their wishes or desires. They want to be able to control how they do things. Hence, this is why they prefer to work alone despite having great people skills and will remain independent and somewhat distant too. They do not like authority because it triggers the fears in their subconscious mind of being controlled in one way or the other.

If you’re facing this, it may be a good idea to seek the help of a therapist or other mental health professional. You can find a therapist at BetterHelp who can help you learn how to cope and address it.

What Non-Conformists Desire

The Non-conformist desires to remain in control of their own life. They realize that this can only be achieved if they work hard and become independent. This desire is so strong and deep that they desire it for others too hence they are oftentimes advocates for others too. They want to be able to be free and not under the influence of others.

To achieve this, they defy whatever vulnerability they may have within themselves either emotionally or mentally. They stay distant from others when they can and ignore any feelings that arise in them. This helps them stay focused on their goals and not fall into the traps set by other people.

INTPs – Who Are They?

As introverts, INTPs are more focused on their inner world rather than the outer one. They will expend more time and effort to understand it through thinking, reflecting, imagining and other mental processes . They hence engage in behaviours that allow them to focus on their inner world of thoughts; they are seen as quiet, focused and in the state of ‘reflecting’.

INTPs prefer solitude because this helps them focus on what they love doing. Also, for most introverts, it is just too much of the effort to intermingle and interact with others. Sometimes it is awkward for them or causes them too much anxiety. At other times, it may be because they have to make much effort to focus on what to say or when to say as they take in too much information and find it difficult on how to filter it out. Nonetheless, they prefer spending more time alone rather than with people.

INTPs are intuitive which means they don’t always focus on the facts or what is in front of them. Yes they very much appreciate logic and the relationships they can see however, this does not stop them from thinking out of the box. People who are intuitive are known for making many discoveries in world history and this does not happen by just ordinary thinking; they must go beyond the scope they are given! They give value to their vision, dreams and even imagination and combine that with what they already have in their hands.

Such people give weightage to their thoughts and what seems structured or logical rather than the emotions they feel for others. Sometimes this can be insensitive and they find difficulty in understanding the emotional complaints or requests their loved ones have. 

INTPs are perceivers and this may explain why they are able to achieve so much in terms of their discoveries and contributions to the world. Such people are spontaneous; they prefer things that come and go rather than a structured boring plan.
