Here’s the Disney Villain You’d Be, Based On Your Myers-Briggs® Personality Type

Last week I wrote an article about the personality types of the Marvel villains. Afterwards, I got dozens of requests from individuals anxious to find out which Disney villain they’d be! After lots of research, and lots of throwing my hands in the air in frustration because every Disney villain lacks nuance and dimension, I came up with today’s post.

These villains are entertaining and often hilarious, but they’re not real people, so please remember not to take their typings too seriously. I can’t sit down across from Ursula the sea witch and conduct a type consultation. I can only guess at her type based on one-dimensional, exaggerated, and humorous characterizations. If there’s a personality type you dislike, I urge you not to assume that anyone with that type is going to have these villainous characteristics. Disney villains are often wildly unrealistic and probably sociopathic in some way. So this article is meant to be entertaining, not prescriptive.

The ENFP – Syndrome (The Incredibles)

ENFP Disney Villain

The ENFP villain is usually someone who feels like they’ve been wronged in life and has a lot of anger and resentment bottled up inside. They feel misunderstood and undervalued, often leading them to lash out at those around them. Syndrome from The Incredibles is a perfect example of an ENFP villain. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t win Mr. Incredible’s favor as a young inventor. He was instead shooed away like a troublesome pest. This rejection led to a deep resentment of Mr. Incredible and all other “supers” as Syndrome grew older. His revenge plot against them was his way of feeling powerful and in control after a lifetime of feeling like an outsider. And even though he uses his gifts for evil, his creativity, imagination, and vision are talents that many ENFPs also share.

ENTP Disney Villain

The ENTP villain is someone who is very charming and charismatic, often using their silver tongue to manipulate those around them.

He’s a smooth talker who knows how to charm and manipulate those around him. He has no qualms about using voodoo to get what he wants and will do whatever it takes to get his hands on the riches he desires.

The INFP villain is often someone who was misunderstood and once gentle at heart, but eventually embraced their dark side. They may be harbouring a lot of anger and resentment, which can lead them to lash out in destructive ways. Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean is a perfect example of an INFP villain.

The ENFJ villain is someone who is very charming and charismatic, knowing how to play on people’s emotions to get them aligned with their schemes. They may seem generous and thoughtful initially, only to later reveal their true manipulative intentions. Hans from Frozen is a perfect example of an ENFJ villain.

The ENTJ – Ursula (The Little Mermaid)

ENTJ Disney Villain Ursula

The ENTJ villain is someone who is very ambitious and ruthless, often doing whatever it takes to get what they want. They are often in control, commanding, and have a clear vision for what they want, which can make them formidable opponents. Ursula from The Little Mermaid is a great example of an ENTJ villain. She’s a powerful sea witch who is always looking for ways to increase her power. While her attempts to trick Ariel may at times seem emotionally motivated, she’s really only interested in using Ariel as a chess piece in her play to strike against Triton. Every action and word is calculated and strategic, and she’ll stop at nothing to get what she wants.

The INFJ – Bellweather (Zootopia)

Bellweather INFJ Disney Villain

The INFJ villain is someone with a strategic long-term vision and the people skills to get people aligned with them. Usually they believe their goal is to the benefit of others. Often they have a humanitarian agenda that they’ve twisted so as to believe that they are in the right. While INFJ villains may seem quiet and unassuming, they have a hidden dark side that is often revealed later in the story. Bellweather from Zootopia is a perfect example of this. She’s a sheep who seems like a normal, everyday citizen, but she ultimately dreams of creating a world where prey animals are the dominant predators. She’s manipulative and calculating; appearing kind yet throwing others for a loop when they later discover her true intentions.

The ESFP – Tamatoa (Moana)

ESFP Disney Villain

The ESFP villain is someone who is very flamboyant and attention-seeking, often using their charms to try and get what they want. They may also be materialistic and quick-witted; using their sensory awareness to circumvent their opponents. Tamatoa from Moana is a perfect example of an ESFP villain. He’s a giant coconut crab who is obsessed with shiny objects. He’s vain and egotistical, always looking to add more treasure to his collection. He’s also very entertaining, often providing comic relief in otherwise dark scenes.

The ESTP – Gaston (Beauty and the Beast)

ESTP Disney Villain Gaston

The ESTP villain is someone who blends confidence and charm with an analytical, devious mind. Gaston from Beauty and the Beast is a perfect example. He’s very confident and self-assured, judging himself and others by their external appearances and how much pleasure they may provide for him. He thinks quickly on his feet and enjoys the thrill of the chase. He’s not afraid to use force or violence to get what he wants, but ultimately he’s too self-seeking and impulsive to gain true satisfaction.

The ISFP – Bruce (Finding Nemo)

ISFP Disney Villain Bruce

I really struggled to find an ISFP villain. I spent hours researching the most obscure villains in an effort to find one that fit, but in the end, I had to choose an unintentional villain. Bruce from Finding Nemo isn’t a true villain at heart. He means well and is desperately trying to avoid eating fish. Yet the “Fish are our friends, not food” mantra isn’t enough to keep him from hungrily eyeing Marlin and Dory.

ISFPs are driven by their values and intense inner vision of what is right or wrong. They are often gentle, but they can be surprisingly fierce when a deeply-held value is disrespected or someone they love is hurt by someone else. For an excellent example of an ISFP villain, you can look at my article on the Marvel villains, and Electro specifically.

The ISTP – Sid Phillips (Toy Story)

ISTP Disney Villain Sid Philliips

The ISTP villain is someone who is very analytical and curious, but without regard for the values at stake in a situation. They take their curiosity to extremes, using their skills for evil instead of good. Sid Phillips from Toy Story is a perfect example of an ISTP villain. He’s very creative, easily able to come up with elaborate schemes to torture and destroy his toys. Like most ISTPs, he enjoys taking things apart and putting them back together. He’s an innovator and creator, but he ultimately uses his skills for evil instead of good.

The ESFJ – Mother Gothel (Tangled)

ESFJ Disney Villain Mother Gothel

The ESFJ villain is someone who seems very loving and nurturing, but also can be manipulative and controlling. Mother Gothel from Tangled is a perfect example of an ESFJ villain. She knows how to play the role of “mother” convincingly, appealing to Rapunzel’s emotions and gaining her trust with false motherly affection. But ultimately she’s self-serving and her guise is only a manipulation. In the end she only cares about herself, immortality, and being admired.

The ESTJ – Henry J. Waternoose (Monsters, Inc.)

ESTJ Disney Villain Henry J. Waternoose

The ESTJ villain is someone who is very logical and ambitious, but without regard for their values and morals. Henry J. Waternoose from Monsters, Inc. is a perfect example of an ESTJ villain. He’s very logical and efficient, always looking for ways to increase productivity. But he’s also lacking in empathy and integrity, ultimately being willing to harm others if that’s what it takes to get to the top. He’s willing to cross moral lines and break the law, all in the name of progress.

The ISFJ – Mary Sanderson (Hocus Pocus)

ISFJ Disney Villain Mary Sanderson

I was hoping to find a better and more nuanced ISFJ villain, but Mary Sanderson is the only Disney villain I found that remotely resembled an ISFJ. She’s detail-oriented and attuned to her senses, with an especially keen sense of smell for children. She’s always looking out for her sisters, nurturing them and empathizing with them. She helps Winifred to practice calming exercises when she’s stressed, and attentively listens to her sisters instructions. Like most ISFJs, she believes in tending to the needs of her group; in this case, her sisters. Also like most ISFJs, she’s leery about new and unusual circumstances.

ISTJ Disney Villain Lady Tremaine

The ISTJ villain is calculating and analytical, but without regard for the welfare of others. Lady Tremaine from Cinderella is a perfect example of an ISTJ villain. She’s very logical and efficient, always looking for ways to gain an advantage. She also has a set routine that she likes to follow, along with very specific rituals and comforts that Cinderella must satisfy. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to get what she wants, even if it means trapping Cinderella away for her own self-serving purposes.

  1. Ms. Susan Storm,
    Congrats! I’m impressed your article showed up on my Google search page in the newsfeed. AND my picky self clicked on the article even before I saw it was written by one of my fave personality experts.
    I will overlook the disturbing implications about how well Google has hacked my interests. ;/
    Kudos to you …

  2. Scar actually doesn’t work as an INTJ villian. A true INTJ wouldn’t take over just for the sake of power- only if they thought things needed to be run more efficiently. They never would have let the lands fall into desolation and chaos, they would have had a plan to improve upon them and had everything running self sufficiently from the background.

    1. You don’t have a good grasp on what a VILLAIN is, do ya? Villains (most of all DISNEY villains) tend to want things simply because they want them or because they feel they deserve it in some way (Scar just so happens to do both) and most couldn’t care less about “making things better” so long as they are in control.

      If Scar is not a INTJ then what Disney villain do you suppose deserves to take his place?

  3. The first time I saw my mother-in-law, she made me think of Ursula. Now reading about Ursula, I think it was the opposite, Ursula was made after her x)

    I also have an ESFJ colleague who totally matches the description of the ESFJ villain, she might see caring but she’s quite manipulative, and takes credit from others, and she knows I spot non-subtle but she’s still not very subtle herself.

  4. Susan this was great! Ha, I love that you chose Bruce for ISFP and Sid is for sure ISTP! I always saw Syndrome as ENTP personally but close enough! And ha, yeah Hans is classic.

    1. I also think that Bellweather was ISFJ and was instead trying to hold tradition rather than progress society forward, but I understand why she would be also seen as INFJ.
