    Default Optimus Prime

    Come on guys, what type is he? :wink:

    Someone please link to a suitable video by which we can assess his type.

    My dibs: ISTp or ESTj... can't tell which. Could be ESTp, due to the "delegation" factor.

    My guess was always a Delta. By the way, should we expand this thread to include other Transformers?

    I'd go with ESTj. There's a chance he's ISTj, but ESTj seems far more likely.

    @Logos: Sure.

    I got the impression Megatron/Galvatron is ISTj. He's definitely got the , that's for sure.

    I could believe ESTj for Optimus.

    ESFj for Bumblebee/Goldbug.

    That entire film was so Gamma. Every
    important character was in gamma except the baddies because baddies
    don't have souls(SeFi). All the good guys stuck together and when they
    split up there was always a ' I CAN'T LEAVE MY BUDDY BEHIND!!!'
    situation going on. The good bots had rude, loud and tough( I'm not using right word here) humour.

    The only possible ESFj/ESTj was the guy with the blue hummer. The main character = ENTj and his girlfriend some gamma SF. Optimus was all ISFj - all that talk about sacrific and defeating evil reaks of Fi.

    Ontop of that the way the film was put togethter was very simular to the way Tarintino puts his films together (speech seems overly realisic or cheeky, music doesn't fade into the atmosphere of the film well, only the action scenes where any good, romantic/relationships scenes where sappy and puky), so I'm guess we have a ENTj director.

    Is it a bad thing if the most inspiring thing I've heard literally in months was said by a cartoon robot?

    Logos: very good. I agree with most of those.

    Why Soundwave as ENFj instead of INTp? Oh yeah, Ultra Magnus = INTp. Definitely.

    As for the movie, the main character was ENTp, exertion type ISTj. Lots of "duty" talk throughout the film. (I really got into the movie Socionics-wise

    Oh, and the Autobots are conservatives and the Decepticons are liberals! (who would've thought?) The whole coverup business at the end of the movie so reminded me of the Bush admin's excuses for the wiretapping fiasco. Same logic: "living in secret, protecting the innocent."

    I was a bit hesitant with Soundwave, but since he seems to "get along" better than any other Decepticon with Megatron, I thought that there must be a reason. In many ways, Soundwave is like Shockwave in their behavior. And while there is a certain element of Soundwave being an INTp (perhaps as an exertion), his ability to read the mood and atmosphere () has kept him from ever getting on any other Decepticon's bad side even during volatile power struggles. I will not object to Soundwave being INTp if that is the case, but that was my reasoning for at least initially typing him as ENFj.

    BTW, which movie are you talking about? Transformers the Movie (1986) or Transformers: The Movie (2007)?

    Because there are still the second cast of popular Transformers to type from Transformers the Movie, but I will do those later perhaps. :wink:

    Well from what I can figure, all the Decepticons are on the same side. It's not like a political party divide: there are no disagreements, only a mutual consensus that the strongest rules. The reverse of that is seen with the Autobots, where everyone respects and obeys Optimus Prime and moreover, are apparently helpless without him.

    If Soundwave were ENFj-INTp, then he'd be someone along the lines of Hitler I'd suspect. Though Soundwave is a second-fiddle guy, definitely.

    Not entirely true. There are power divides and struggles. While I suppose the idea that the strongest rules the Decepticons is true, at the same time that does not mean that the less strong are complacent with it. Shockwave in the comics overthrew Megatron and then disabled most of the Autobots on Earth (Megatron came back, BTW). So there is the vying power struggle between Megatron, Shockwave, Starscream, and to a much lesser extent Soundwave, who has a tendency to play all sides. With Optimus Prime and the Autobots, while there is one Prime, there have also been factions, sub-leaders, and such even when Prime is not present. In the UK comics, Grimlock, Prowl (the technical 2nd-in-command), and Ultra Magnus have been the leaders of the Autobots at some point even whenever Prime was MIA, disabled, or dead.

    The main character and the hot chick are a good example of LIE/ESI duality, IMO.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    You know, it's strange. I didn't even think about what types they might be... and I pretty much always think about people's and character's types.

    That's because Transformers are simply more than meets the eye. :wink:

    I thought the main character was ENTp, like the actor.

    Just putting that out there.

    Why do people continue to talk about humans in a thread about Transformers?
