ESTP

This is Thor, God of Thunder – one of the most powerful Asgardians and Avenger. Thor Odinson can be paired with just about anyone in the MCU but where he is most fitting would be with the Trinity (secular) – namely, with Captain America (ISFJ) and Iron Man (ENTP). If you haven’t already seen MCU’s Avenger’s Endgame you’ll see what I mean, there is an epic scene against Thanos you won’t want to miss.

We have also seen Thor pair up with his half brother Loki, the Hulk, Peter Quill (Guardians of the Galaxy) and even Rocket Raccoon. Thor can also stand independently from his contemporaries and manage his own. Thor is an active character, “A Doer” if you will – which leads me to his personality type, the ESTP.

Thor’s main driver or hero function (no pun intended) is Extraverted Sensing (Se) followed by the parent or auxiliary function, Introverted Thinking (Ti). ESTP’s are known for pushing or expanding the boundaries of a system and if necessary, they will break it. Because of their Extraverted Sensing function they are completely aware of their environment – they won’t hesitate to take action.

Thor has been known to disobey his father Odin in his early days – taking off to battle an army of Frost Giants without consent. Mind you though, he was seeking of worthiness at this time and had the wrong idea of what that meant. Thor, without hesitation has also chopped off Thanos’s head in Avenger’s Endgame. Also in Avenger’s Endgame – when the trinity unites to battle Thanos – Thor is the first to attack. Action oriented ESTP’s are quick thinkers, thanks to that supporting Ti function.

On the dark side, ESTP’s aren’t always on the upside when faced with a truth they can’t seem to accept. We’ve scene Thor in his depressed state, again in Avenger’s endgame – he completely neglects his health and binges on drinking his worries away. However with ESTP’s even when depressed, they like to keep a crew of friends around.

At the end of Avenger’s Endgame, Thor joins Peter Quill and the Guardians of the Galaxy on a new conquest. ESTP’s are known for making decisions as they go so I wasn’t surprised. ESTP’s can bump heads when the lead role is competitive – but the ESTP isn’t deterred by this, in fact they are quite comfortable being challenged and challenging others.
