Now, when it comes to Marvel superheroes, there's about as big a range of personalities as you could ever imagine. Even if you keep your focus limited to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's still a gulf in nature between the swaggering confidence of Tony Stark, the introverted combativeness of Cap and the barely-constrained rage of Bruce Banner - to say nothing of the likes of Groot, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Rocket Raccoon.

In the world of psychology, of course, there's a popular means for classifying such differences - the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® - which divides us all into 16 distinct psychological groupings, based around four opposite pairs of traits: Extroversion and Introversion, Sensing and Intuition, Thinking and Feeling, and Judgement and Perception. Each of those traits is accorded a letter (E, I, S, N (for intuition), T, F, J and P), and by combining four of them, your personality type is generated.

And then Hulk will smash it.
And then Hulk will smash it.

A while back, though, in a fantastically helpful move, the folks over at Elephant Robot actually analyzed a whole bunch of the heroes of the Marvel universe using the Myers-Briggs method, and came up with a pretty darned brilliant summary of who fits into each category.

All of which happen to be just below:

First up:

Introversion, Sensing, Thinking, Judgement

Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judgement

Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, Judgement

Introversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judgement

Introversion, Sensing, Thinking, Perception

Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, Perception

Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, Perception

Introversion, Intuition, Thinking, Perception

Meanwhile, in the other half of the Introversion/Extroversion spectrum:

Extroversion, Sensing, Thinking, Perception

Extroversion, Sensing, Feeling, Perception

Extroversion, Intuition, Feeling, Perception

Extroversion, Intuition, Thinking, Perception

Extroversion, Sensing, Thinking, Judgement

Extroversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judgement

Extroversion, Intuition, Feeling, Judgement

Extroversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judgement

The big question now, though?
