Hundreds of anime characters have their own distinct personalities, but these well-known figures all fall under the ENTJ MBTI® type.
For the MBTI® system, created in 1944 by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katherine Cook Briggs, qualities were assigned to each individual. To put it another way, there are four categories in which people can fall between two options: extroversion against introversion; sensing versus intuition; thinking versus feeling; and judging versus perceiving.
For example, ENTJ stands for Extroverted, Intuitive, Thinking and Judging, a four-letter acronym that may be used to define any individual’s personality type. Here are a few anime characters that almost perfectly fit the ENTJ personality type.

1. Madara Uchiha’s Strong Leadership Qualities Set Him Apart – Naruto
Naruto’s Madara Uchiha is often cited as an example of an ENTJ character because of his introversion.
