Some of you may or may not know of my interest in psychology, but if you don't, you should know that I love to research what makes different people tick! :D

So a few weeks back, when I was reading about the 16 different personality types, I started picking out which Hetalia characters the archetypes sounded like! Call me crazy, but it ended up leading me to analyzing all the types and sorting the Hetalia characters that I'm familiar with into their respective categories.

If characters are missing off this list, it's likely because I'm not familiar enough with their personality to sort them. I would love it if you want to discuss, or perhaps even challenge, the list I've made! Even better if you have ideas about where other characters may fit. :D

These are the pages that I mainly used for my speculation, if you're so inclined:

Pages about the personalities' relationships:

And my personal favorite psychology page (created by a fellow ENTP, how about that!):
www.alittlebitofpersonality.co…

INTJ "The Scientist" - England, Germania :iconyayenglandplz: :iconyaygermaniaplz:



To determine the 2P personality type of a character, take the two middle characters and change them to their opposite letter type.

The nice thing about figuring their personality types is that it offers greater insight to their interactions; and, if you know your personality type, might tell you how you would fit in with the Hetalia countries~

"Why did you even bother with something this silly, Nemu?" Why, because I can, of course~ I was studying the types already, so why not add in another element while I was at it? :dummy:

I completely see Iceland as an INTP! I've been told my personality is almost identical to Iceland by my friends and I'm an INTP myself. But I've done extensive research on the 16 personality types, and I be that INTP best describes him.

Considering Russia is well.  .  .  Russia, I don't think he would fit into a certain type all snug  (I'm pretty sure he's INFX and if he is an INFP, I don't exactly relate to him much.)

I'm INFP and while I see Canada as ISFP, I do relate to him a lot (some of my real-life Hetalian friends even call me Canada because I'm soft-spoken, I have blonde hair, blue eyes (some portrayals of him have him have blue eyes) and glasses, and they used to forget my real name).   In fact there's plenty of characters of different MBTIs I relate a lot too.

I agree with most of these!  Though I also saw Italy as being more ESFP.

I see America often being typed as ENFP,  though TBH, I don't see much Fi or Ne in him.  He's too in-the-moment and a thrill-seeker.

I also see Canada often being typed as a IXFJ, though he always came across to me as Fi-dominant , and I don't see much Ni (when he's typed as INFJ) so yeah. Plus, he kinda lacks the fantasy-proneness we N's (I'm INFP) have (not trying to stereotype all intuition users as this, but he just seems more of a sensor in my eyes.   Plus, he reminds me a lot of an ISFP I know) :P  

Sorry if it seems like I'm complaining.  :)  Once again, great list.  :D

Many of them are wrong, I am sorry to say that... Maybe just because I only think in cognitive functions... when you only use the letters then you didn't understand MBTI correctly.
I can't count how many of them are wrong... So I only can say who is right. Denmark is right, also Hong Kong, Germany, Netherlands and Turkey (I am not sure with Sweden).
I am sorry to say that but it's just your opinion. I would just say that the most of them are mistyped.

This was a very old article. And everyone has their opinions, and a lot of times how types are perceived depends on the person, tbh.

Feel free to make your own article! I'd love to see more MBTI analysis for Hetalia and other fandoms.

((Ah this was cool to read!

Tho some I do not agree on tbh

I see Germany as an ISTJ and England as a INTP

Also Iceland seems like an ISFP or and INFP

I also think America would fit under ENFP and Canada as an infj or an ISFJ I can't decide as of right now.

Tho the rest I can mosty see as the type you gave them))

Wow, you see it just like me! I saw this list and maaaany of the characters are just wrong...
America is demonstrably an ENFP, als England is indeed INTP (also proven). Iceland is IxFP but I rather see him more as INFP. Canada is difficult to type... but indeed, he is IxFJ.
Also Russia is INFP, China ESTJ, Spain is ENFP, France is ESFP (he uses a lot of Se instead of Ne o.o His biggest fear is what will happen next to him so it's correct to let him be Ni-inferior).
Nobody is ENTP yet... (in Hetalia there is ENTP missed...). Seychelles is xSFP and Poland is ESFP. Lithuania is ISFJ (this is just him), North Italy is ISFP, South Italy is ISTP, Norway is INTJ. Belgium is an ESFJ. 
To some of them I am not sure which type... but I am sure that they don't fit the type Nemurenainda gave them.

Which MBTI-Type are you?

...Alright we see then all the same then. And Ice is likely and INFP, he is always the one late to follow new things at Europe, as well as appearantly wearing same sweater every meeting. Which, sounds like Si to me in all honesty. And it would make sense if he was supressing his Aux Ne to seem more "older" "mature" since he is kinda obsessed with that, due to his really insecure Dom Fi. 

Though, I am kinda curious about where England being an INTP is proven?

((Also, sorry for replying like few months later to a reply you made to someone else, but this lil' INTP here couldn't help but jump in when someone with Jungian functions knowledge pops their head in this fandom.))

I believe Ice is an INTP because feeling types tend to be more idealistic, compassionate and emotional and Ice is more embarrassed by his 'hot' side and tends to appear more logical, calm and collected, more convinced by rational arguments, and, no offense to Icey, he isn't exactly empathetic, relationship focused, decide things based on feelings, or taking care of other's needs. And regardless of common belief,  INTPs actually do have very strong emotions, but prefer not to show it and suppress their feelings more.

Pandemial Featured By Owner Edited Jan 17, 2016
Uhm... Yes, as an INTP I can confirm that we do have very strong emotions and not exactly know how to handle them exactly so detach from them, but this doesn't mean he is an INTP.

His Fi game is quite strong. He questions what he is almost a few hours later he was "born". 

To quote PersonalityPage and HetaliaMBTI:

“[INFPs whose introverted Feeling overshadow the other functions] may be unaware of appropriate social behavior.”

"I think it is also worth-while to note that the fact that he is often not aware of normal fashions - which, by definition, includes behaviour as well as clothing styles - and thus kind of fails at being fashionable is also an unhealthy Fi dom trait."

Also, he is highly aware of what he feels, which is staple of Fi. And he seems to keep wearing same kind of clothes and have a rather hard time trying new things out, or at least doesn't feel so much comfortable with doing so, which would point to Si somewhere on his stack.

I would highly recommend checking those two out as well: hetalia-mbti.tumblr.com/post/1… aph-mbti.tumblr.com/post/13343…

Austria and Estonia? Not too bad, I suppose.
I've seen France typed as an ESTP and America as an ESFP (I see him more as an ESTP because of the bullheadedness, as well as the strange similarities with a fellow ESTP, JFK.) From what I've seen in the anime and manga, Turkey seems to be more of an ENTJ, somehow energetic yet completely stubborn.

Nemurenainda Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Student General Artist
I've seen France typed as an ESTP before, too, and I really disagree. :\  I mean, ESTP and ENFP are extremely different, so it'd have to be a confusion of the definitions themselves in order to get them wrong.

I can see what you mean with Turkey... especially his attitude when it came to conquering Europe. When I chose him as ENTP, I was going off of his wiki profile that stated he enjoyed "new things", and tended to partake in "one up-manship" or being really competitive, which ENTP's are commonly described as being.

What is your opinion on Prussia's type? TBH, he's given me the most indecision between ESTP and ENTP of any character ever.

:iconprincecheezburger:
PrinceCheezburger Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I really see ESTP. Similar to America (and JFK, both whom I consider ESTPs. I will be using him quite a bit,) Prussia is extremely arrogant and energetic, as well as charismatic. An ENTP would be interested in deeper and more abstract/creative pursuits (like France, who despite being an ENFP, gets in his fair share of nostalgic and philosophical parts in the series), none which I see in Prussia.

Nemurenainda Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Student General Artist
Excellent points. ^^ That helps quite a bit, thank you~ You're quite good at this. :D
What got me thinking Prussia might be ENTP is that both ESTPs and ENTPs have high opinions of themselves, and that Prussia was exceptionally organized in his private life. Getting a second opinion helps clear it up. :)

I always thought Romano was an ISTP, and honestly I think Japan is a bit too diplomatic to be ine but who can argue with badassness? Sweet, I can be Norway though.
Reply
:iconnemurenainda:
Nemurenainda Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014  Student General Artist
Thank you for commenting! :D

For Romano, I admit I found him difficult to type, since he has quite a few features that aren't necessarily easy to distinguish based on the type descriptions. Lately, I've been much more assured with my selections.
Romano often focuses on the past, using his past to measure the present, like with his jealousy towards his brother, and his zealous behavior towards Germans, which makes him a Si-dom. (ISTJ, ISFJ) I definitely know that Romano isn't very in touch with other's opinions, so he wouldn't be ISFJ. :lmao:

And you're right, Japan is very diplomatic to be an ISTP, but I couldn't imagine him being a Fe-dom (ENFJ, ESFJ) or even Fe secondary (ISFJ, INFJ), and his Thinking function is well developed with how he applies his knowledge and logic to everything he encounters, which leaves ISTP or INTP. When I typed him, my main thought was the description's focus on ISTP inclination towards mechanical hobbies. So, yes, I've been considering that he might actually be an INTP, considering his predisposition away from conflict (which is more common in INTPs than in ISTPs). But at the same time, I'm not really sure I could consider him the same type as Greece... but Japan does enjoy theory, and doesn't consider his past very often, so I might end up switching him to INTP.

Thanks for bringing that up! I hope you enjoyed this journal! :meow:

i love your list :3 although using the cognitive functions i'd say poland is more of an ENTP because he seems to have a leading extroverted intuition (i dont really see a sensing getting the rather creative idea of putting a rocket onto his country to fly it around) and he also seems to have a supporting introverted thinking (i mean he had pretty good logic with his chain letter to russia even if he forgot a few facts)  as well as having a relief extroverted feeling (this is where i think a lot of his flamboyancy comes from) he just strikes me as being a very flamboyant ENTP XD

Awww! Such an amazingly well thought out comment, and your account is deactivated! D:

That makes a surprising amount of sense... The way that he comes up with crazy ideas and has such sass does line up with the definition of an ENTP, if a little flamboyant (as you pointed out). There's also the way that he told the story about the dragon to Lithuania that also points to him being an ENTP type, with how well he told the story with gripping interest. And then there's the fact he obviously is extremely optimistic and quite the procrastinator, when Lithuania told him about Russia coming to invade, and Poland talking about how "he's totally got it under control" and then proceeds to chatter about the latest thing that caught his interest. His mind bounces all over the place!
