    Default Byronic Hero

    What types are most likely?
    (I will try to post a description of this term if I manage to find one that I think is decent...)

    Some famous fictional Byronic Heroes (with my tentative typings):
    Devil in "Paradise Lost"- ENTJ
    Heathcliffe in "Wuthering Heights"- INTP
    Rochester in "Jane Eyre"- ESTJ

    IMO Byronic Heroes tend to have Fi SuperId.
    The best ones- Devil and Heathcliff- are more complicated. They blur the line between good and evil in their attempts to manipulate fate. (Ni ego, Gamma NTs?)
    The "softer" ones- e.g. Rochester- tend to sort of just be victims of fate. They don't really test anything; they're more just resigned to misery. (Ni superego, Delat STs?)

    Also, on a personal note: This is my all time FAVORITE archetype. I <3 Byronic Heroes.

    The only time I ever heard the concept of a Byronic hero discussed was in reference to James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. I thought he was IEI as portrayed in the book, though I seriously considered EII for a while because I identified with him a whole lot.

    lol. The Byronic hero prototype should be Beta NF ..but Heathcliff is kind of SLE sx/sp
    Rochester in Jane Eyre is Te base.
    Stephen Dedalus is EII.
