Fairy Tail MBTI Types

If you know your MBTI type, comment who your character type is. If you want to take a free MBTI test, follow this link http://www.16personalities.com/ . I personally have been taking the Myers Briggs for years and my mbti type has always been INFP. The last I took it, I also had a little bit of INTJ but still a dominant INFP. My Fairy Tail character is Wendy. And I whole hardedly agree! :D This is the most exact I've seen the list compared with the Fairy Tail characters. There were a couple other Fairy Tail MBTI lists online, but when I watch Fairy Tail, I agree most with this list. I hope you guys enjoy this fun blog.

ISTJ

Levy McGarden the Inspector Levy is the perfect example as an Inspector. She loves to read up on anything and everything. But even more impressive, she uses her knowledge and detective findings to help assist her teammates with intel.

ISFJ

Juvia Lockser the Protector Although she isn't the most reliable in battles, Juvia's character is a protector. When she has something precious to fight for, she will go all out to protect what she has. She also shows these protective tendencies towards her love for Gray Fullbuster.

INFJ

Erza Scarlet the Counselor Erza is the ultimate counselor. She may have an adorable side, but when it comes to being serious, no one is as more cooperative as Erza. She asks the right questions and even make quick remarks. She also shows her counseling side when she finds herself separating Gray and Natsu from a brawl.

INTJ

Gray Fullbuster the Mastermind Unlike Natsu, Gray is a thinker. Before going into battle with their foe, he makes sure there's a plan of attack. Sometimes relying on his heart and passion can be an effective strategy for him. Yes he strips here and there, but when he finds his clothes off, he immediately becomes baffled.

ISTP

Gajeel Redfox the Craftsman Gajeel is definitely the craftsman. He enjoys being in the shadows and working undercover. And when he finds answers to what he's searching for he's quick to share his intel. Like a craftsman working on a project, they feel a sense of accomplishment when they've completed their objectives. He keeps to himself a lot, he's also a sensor, a thinker, and is a perceiver.

ISFP

Rogue Cheney the Composer Rogue is a brilliant composer. He even came back from the future to orchestrate the destruction of man by dragons. In an episode, Rogue sensed that his friend Frosch was lost but spent the entire episode perceiving that she would make it back to their guild on her own. He also shows a strong bond for his friends.

INFP

Wendy Marvell the Healer Obviously Wendy is a healer. But being an INFP, I can tell by the way she acts is exactly how an INFP is portrayed. INFPs are lovers and creative. Which Wendy shows both of in the show. INFP's hate disappointing others and are quick to show apologetic tendencies. Although she is surrounded by her friends, she shows introvert tendencies as well. She goes off on her own all the time. She doesn't like getting others involved in her affairs. Or sometimes she'll just go shopping by herself (aside from Carla whom never leaves her side and is her loyal companion).

INTP

Laxus Dreyar the Architect So Laxus is crazy OP and usually destroys anything and everything around him with his Thunder Dragon magic. But, he also builds from what he destroys. Like an architect, he builds his relationship with Fairy Tail from the bottom up as he was banished from the guild. And though he's hard headed, he doesn't do anything to ruin what he had built. Instead, he continues to prove that he still cares for his guild even though he wasn't allowed back in until later in the series.

ESTP

Cana Alberona the Dynamo Definitely the life of the party. But aside from being a live wire, she is able to use one of Fairy Tail's strongest magic attack, Fairy Glitter. This spell casts an enormous explosion which earns her right to be the Dynamo.

ESFP

Natsu Dragneel the Performer Natsu may not be a great actor, but he definitely loves the spotlight. He has amazing energy and stamina. He's the epitome of never giving up, especially when his guild and friends are in danger. He also likes to steel the show, whether he's fighting 2 dragon slayers, or pretending to be the King of Fiore. His spirit is courageous and he calls it how it is. Sometimes it gets him into big trouble, but it's also a driving force.

ENFP

Lucy Heartfillia the Champion Lucy is definitely the star of the show. And even though she gets kidnapped as much as Princess Peach from her Mushroom Kingdom, she remains strong and is quick to turn a frown upside down. In a tight situations, she thinks on her feet and tries to figure a way out. She has a lot of heart for her comrades and knows how to listen when someone is feeling down. Even when that someone is just a stranger on the street. She's genuinely helpful.

ENTP

Lisanna Strauss the Visionary Lisanna is a visionary. Being sucked into a different world, then returning back after so many years, she never lost that passion of reuniting herself with her family. And although she had strong feelings for Natsu as a child, she still shows signs of love towards him even though she knows that Natsu and Lucy are always going on adventures. She simply enjoys the company of others.

ESTJ

Evergreen the Supervisor Evergreen is one tough chick. She doesn't like to show signs of weakness nor the love she holds for Elfman. But when she feels exposed, she is quick to help supervise the situation. Although sometimes she fibs about her motives when it comes to Elfman.

ESFJ

Sting Eucliffe the Provider After destroying his previous guild master, he took the thrown. But unlike the tyranny of the previous master, he chooses to change his guilds evil ways. Instead, he shows love and care for his teammates. He offers Yukino back into the guild after the previous master banished her for losing in the wizard tournament.

ENFJ

Elfman Strauss the Teacher Elfman likes to remind everyone about being manly. But aside from that, when he's not preaching about being manly, he reminds the team how important the guild is to everyone. And that it's still manly to have the biggest heart.

ENTJ

Mirajane Strauss the Commander Mirajane doesn't seem like a commander. But she has everything in the palm of her hands. When you make her angry she has multiple shedevil/demon forms. She blends in with everyone when she's not transorfmed in her shedevil form, but when something threatens her loved ones, she will not hesitate to take the situation into her own hands. She's definitely one of the strongest wizards in Fairy Tail, if not, also rivaling Erza Scarlet.

@WarrenDreiling, it's so nice to meet another INFJ, we are hard to find!
I just find this a little overly freaky. So my names is Jesus, and my friends call me Zeus. I got INTP, which was already freakily accurate, but then the character for it has Thunder Dragon magic? Not to mention (maybe I'm connecting a few too many things) my favorite staff is CODII zombies is lightning, which is you wanna upgrade, the last part of the code is 6/10/3. I was born on 6/10/1993. WHY DOES THIS SHIT KEEP HAPPENING? lololol
I have INFJ with Erza Scarlet. Heck yes. Bravo!
Im an INFJ, and I gotta admit that's pretty good
ooooohhhhhh okay! @SparkRIDE 👍✌👉⚡⚡⚡⚡

FIVE Philosophical Anime Quotes
Aside from the amazing art, story, and fan service, avid fans adore the lessons learned from their favorite characters. A lot of the times, other people just don't understand what it is that draws us to what they consider childish cartoons. And for us, we cringe at the sound of that. Well, for one, anime series usually have a deeper meaning that's filled with fantasy, scifi, and everything creatively in between. This importantly goes for dialogue as well. Here are just 5 of many quotes I pulled from some of your favorite anime characters. By all means, comment with some of your favorite anime quotes. Wolf's Rain "Dying or getting killed isn’t something unnatural. Living aimlessly without a purpose is." - Kiba Kiba is hard headed. But completely right. What's the point of living if your life isn't yours to control? Life is hard and it's too easy to give up. But when you have a sense of purpose, your mind is focused and you evolve as an individual. Nana "I always thought that life was about standing your ground, no matter how strong the current was. But going with the flow isn’t so bad after all. As long as it takes you forward." - Osaki Nana Two girls with the same name but are complete polar opposites share an apartment together, but they end up becoming the best of friends. I love it when characters discover new ways to invigorate their state of mind. And Nana definitely isn't closed minded about anything. Sometimes looking at things from a different perspective can lead you to what you're seeking. Cowboy Bebop "Man always thinks about the past before he dies, as if he were frantically searching for proof that he truly lived." - Jet Black Jet, although not the main character, still delivers great lessons to be learned. Especially from his two partners who seem to be very lackluster in doing things. Jet understands what it is to be human and to live a fulfilling life. Code Geass "We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form? If I'm not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku who said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don't usually notice it, it's still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything could argue its existence more eloquently." I can quote this anime all day! This one is sometimes overlooked. But the message is definitely deep. Friendship is how a lot of us stick together. We laugh, cry, and even get upset at each other. But no matter what, they're still there to help you up. Being able to relate friendship to a physical form is genius and beautiful. Fullmetal Alchemist "Stand up and walk. Move on. After all, you have two perfect legs to stand on." - Edward Elric Coming from a boy who lost an arm and a leg, there's no excuse not to pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
I Will Never Stop!👆❤
My Dear Fairy Tail Lovers.. As we all know (even if you arent reading the manga) Our Beloved Fairy Tail will officially End. When it comes to Fairy Tail it honestly hits hard especially in my heart. I joined the Fairy Tail Fandom about 4 years ago so it really has become a sentimental thing for me. Because of Fairy Tail I started watching Anime.. Because of Fairy Tail I joined Vingle. I love Fairy Tail and knowing the last chapter is only hours away.. I can't help but cry and wish for it to never end. But then I realized.. Just because it's going to end doesn't mean the Adventure is over! Even If Fairy Tail ends I will never stop.. Watching it! Reading It! Posting It! OR LOVING IT❤! I LOVE FAIRY TAIL❤ AND I WILL NEVER STOP DOING SO❤! Tagging!

Top 13 Anime to Watch Before Halloween.
Halloween is just around the corner and so I've devised a list of Anime Titles that you can enjoy before you go out cosplaying as your favorite Ghoul or Titan. Some contain classics and some more recent. In all cases, it's anime that you need to check out! These aren't in any specific order. Soul Eater What a shocker right?! But why not. definitely gives a Halloween vibe. Shiki Creepy and stunningly beautiful art work! The story is compelling and suffices for a great mystery. There's something a foot in the small town of Sobata. When a strange family movies in, people start dying left and right. Princess Resurrection If you like murderous female leads and chainsaws, look no further. Attack on Titan Don't hate! For those new to anime, this is not only an amazing series to get into, it's also one of the most popular one for this generation. Just look at that epic cover! It's kind of a unique take on David vs. Goliath. Blood+ Definitely one of my top favorite anime. Such beautiful imagery and catchy OST. The story is deep and of course a ton of Chiropteran/vampire slaying. Tokyo Majin An underestimated anime. A group of kids gain powers to help bring down demons and the undead. Highschool of the Dead didn't do it for you? Try this anime. Definitely a good watch. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia For the romcom lovers in the room, this anime has its mysterious ghost story, with a mix of romance and comedy between a boy and a ghost. Hell Girl Sick series. Be sure to not wish Hell upon others or you'll find yourself dealing with this shedevil before she's sending you off to Hell too. Parasyte Sci-fi horror action? Look no further. Parasyte will take you on one twisted, sick, and action packed ride. A young student gets infected by an alien life-form and basically goes superhero. Dance in the Vampire Bund Just watch it. You won't be disappointed. At first I was like, this ain't right, due to the pedophilia. But she's a freaking vampire! Plus stunning fight scenes. Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni In a small town of Hinamizawa, some 2,000 residents conduct a ritual festival yearly through a sacred offering. The new resident and main character, Keiichi, befriends a few new classmates but quickly notices that somethings not right in his new town. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo Okay, so I don't care much for harem. And when I do, I like it due to originality. This one's interesting. A hard headed boy which resembles a lot like Ichigo from Bleach (exnay on the orange hair) has a special gift. By kissing other people (witches), he gets to obtain their powers. I actually like the story to this anime. Just thank me that I didn't put Rosario + Vampire on this list. High School of the Dead Zombies and BEEEWWWBS. Need I say more? It's on the list because looking past the fan service, it's a pretty darn grotesque zombie anime. Tokyo Ghoul OMG! Take a moment away from Sword Art Online, and watch this amazing anime. A lot of anime is either a hit or miss, but this definitely is hard to miss. The art, story, character development, macbre, etc. is all but phenomenal. Basically a young boy who fears ghouls, becomes one. He tries his best to stay human, but realizes the prejudice that surrounds decent ghouls and people. He's torn from being human or a monster. The third season is rumored for 2016! Can't wait!
Working in the Anime Industry: A Struggle
The Japanese Animation Creators Association just recently released the results of a survey taken in 2015 of over 750 different people working in the Anime industry in Japan. Coming from an American standpoint, where our entertainers are paid staggering amounts of money, you might think it would be similar for Anime creators, considering how popular the medium is. You'd be wrong. Here's a collected set of averages from Kotaku that shows the median salary for each different position in the creation of anime. Series Director Average Age: 42 years old Average Monthly Salary: 540,833 yen ($5,036) Average Yearly Salary: 6,490,000 yen ($60,437) Chief Animation Director Average Age: 43 years old Average Monthly Salary: 470,000 yen ($4,378) Average Yearly Salary: 5,640,000 yen ($52,521) Producer Average Age: 39 years old Average Monthly Salary: 451,667 yen ($4,206) Average Yearly Salary: 5,420,000 yen ($50,471) Character Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 425,000 yen ($3,958) Average Yearly Salary: 5,100,000 yen ($47,491) Animation Director Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 327,500 yen ($3,045) Average Yearly Salary: 3,930,000 yen ($36,602) 3DCG Animator Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 320,000 yen ($2,980) Average Yearly Salary: 3,840,000 yen ($35,764) Episode Director Average Age: 41 years old Average Monthly Salary: 316,667 yen ($2,949) Average Yearly Salary: 3,800,000 yen ($35,391) Storyboarder Average Age: 49 years old Average Monthly Salary: 310,000 yen ($2,887) Average Yearly Salary: 3,720,000 yen ($34,647) Art Director (Background Art) Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 285,000 yen ($2,655) Average Yearly Salary: 3,420,000 yen ($31,864) Color Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 278,333 yen ($2,593) Average Yearly Salary: 3,340,000 yen ($31,120) Cinematographer Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 265,833 yen ($2,476) Average Yearly Salary: 3,190,000 yen ($29,723) Production Assistant Average Age: 30 years old Average Monthly Salary: 257,000 yen ($2,394) Average Yearly Salary: 3,090,000 yen ($28,788) Key Animator Average Age: 36 years old Average Monthly Salary: 235,000 yen ($2,189) Average Yearly Salary: 2,820,000 yen ($26,271) Inbetween Checker Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 217,500 yen ($2,026) Average Yearly Salary: 2,610,000 yen ($24,314) Layout Artist/Rough Keyart Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 195,000 yen ($1,817) Average Yearly Salary: 2,340,000 yen ($21,800) Paint Staff Average Age: 26 years old Average Monthly Salary: 162,000 yen ($1,509) Average Yearly Salary: 1,950,000 yen ($18,167) 2nd Key Animation/Clean-Up Average Age: 27 years old Average Monthly Salary: 93,333 yen ($870) Average Yearly Salary: 1,120,000 yen ($10,434) Inbetween Staff Average Age: 24 years old Average Monthly Salary: 92,500 yen ($862) Average Yearly Salary: 1,110,000 yen ($10,340) The people at the top of the pyramid make the most; that's something we can understand universally. However, even at the highest salary, the numbers still pale in comparison to what series directors would be receiving here in the States. It only gets more depressing as you go down the list, where some of these positions mean that these employees are making less than minimum wage. Considering the amount of work and pressure these people are under, it's a little disheartening to see how little they earn for their efforts. So, maybe rethink your foray into the industry for now...
