Yagami Light and "L"
These are my impressions of both characters from the anime "Death Note":
I see Ij vs Ip, with "L" being INTp. Light is harder to type... I was thinking more towards IxTj, but I don't disregard the possibility that he could be IxFj somehow, considering that initially his motivation for using the death note was to exterminate the "bad" people of the world. If anyone has seen this anime, what are your thoughts about the two characters?
I think Light is LSI.
As for L, I've heard people say LII with confidence, but I personally can't decide between LII and ILI.
Yeah, I was thinking Light to be LSI too.

If I understand this correctly, the acquiring of more and more information would be attributed to Te rather than Ti. During the anime, not the manga which I haven't read, "L" also shows a clear favoring of harsh tactics to get to the solution quickly. There's also the externally emotionless and almost completely apathetic attitude he carries throughout the series. To me he's an exaggerated INTp.
