    I don't see this Xellos guy as similar to Q at all.

    Me neither

    But that's the catch; that both pull off very good trickster personas. There seems to be an ongoing trend that always nails any sort of character like that as ILE.

    Also, perhaps I did not choose a good example to portray xellos:




    He's sort of a very smiley character who takes pleasure at inconveniencing people. Throughout the anime you are left wondering what his true aims are, and on whose side he is. He seems innocuous, but turns out to be extremely dangerous in battle. People usually type him as ENTp (here on the "anime characters thread" 2 or 3 people type him as ENTp).

    I would have guessed ESE for Q and EIE for the Joker. Bugs I could see as ILE. Loki as LIE ... hm, OK ... (the others in the list I don't know)

    How about Pan as SEE? Eris ... I'd go with ESE.

    How about raven or coyote in American Indian lore?

    Which depiction of the devil are you using?

    Coyote ftmfw



    Also, why Q as ESE? I typically wouldn't have ESEs as rulebreakers of his magnitude.

    That's the thing - here's this guy with unlimited power to change reality; he sees himself as the rulemaker. He confronts the Enterprise guys and they always end up making him have to reconsider some assumption, even though that was what he thought he'd be doing to them. He comes across to me as unbalanced and unhealthy. He sets the rules to demonstrate his power and then when the pesky humans start finding ways around it, he reacts by trying to change to rules. It strikes me as unhealthy Fe coupled with a shortfall of N/overemphasis on Se.

    But keep in mind that I have a hard time with typings; since these guys are all completely fictitious I thought I'd just throw out some impressions. I didn't watch TNG scrupulously so I may be coming to my conclusions based off of a limited picture of the Q character.
