Revan from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
ENFJ - The Mentor (Idealist)
Spoilers below. Do not read if you have not completed the game.
I guess a little notice should be given that this assessment of Revan is based on his canonical appearance as a light-sided male. This assessment is going to assume that Revan took all the light side choices whenever he had a choice between light side and dark side.
Dominant Function: Extroverted Feeling
“Charismatic and powerful, it was inevitable many of the Order would flock to Revan’s seemingly noble cause.”
Compared to INFJs, ENFJs are much more domineering and controlling. They are much quicker to take action, and do not wait to perceive the world like an INFJ would. This explains Revan’s behavior during the Mandalorian Wars. Revan was so affected by the pain and suffering on the Outer Rim, that he personally took off to fight for them, even against the wishes of the Council. He didn’t necessarily do it out of a strong sense of justice, but in order to save the lives that weren’t be saved. He was extremely charismatic and could read the mind of his opponents very well. The combination of these two traits lead to a turning point in the war in favor of the Republic which ultimately lead them to victory. In the main game, Revan always takes the altruistic choices, such as giving money to the poor and protecting the people from gangsters, sith, etc. The light-sided Revan obviously has a good heart and deeply cares about the world around him.
Auxiliary Function: Introverted Intuition
“Revan was power. It was like staring into the heart of the Force."—Kreia
Revan often falls back to his intuition. He was attracted to the meaningful and mysterious, such as the Star Forge. He was able to piece events together pretty well, and used his intuition against the Mandalorians to great advantage in the war. In the game, Revan was guided heavily by his own visions to progress through the game, and was able to piece together all of the foreshadowing hints when he was finally told his real identity.
Tertiary Function: Extroverted Sensing
Revan was a man of action, and wasn’t one to hide behind flawed principles. He wasn’t as impulsive as his buddy Malak, but he still was a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. He was a highly skilled duelist with the lightsaber, and was proficient with other weaponry.
Inferior Function: Introverted Thinking
Although Revan was able to decently execute battle strategies, he seldom ever stopped and thought about what he was actually doing. Instead, he was more driven to help others (Fe), uncover mysteries like the Star Forge (Ni), and take on things directly (Se). His failure to stop and think about things led him to disobey the will of the Jedi Council, which logically deduced a player behind the scenes. His lack of thinking brought him and Malak to the unknown regions only to be brainwashed and turned into puppets. And lastly, as the re-programmed Revan in the game, you are exposed to thousands of hints of foreshadowing towards your own identity, yet you are never able really to pick up the pieces. Revan’s thinking got better as he aged, but it was his lack of thought, not feeling, that was his ultimate downfall.
Revan’s not the perfect ENFJ, but when looking at his history and the LS options that Revan takes throughout the first game, they align more with the ENFJ type than the others.
Alignment: Neutral Good
Revan, when he wasn’t under influence of the Sith, was always prone to do good in the world. However, he never really tried to bound himself within the Jedi Order. He disagreed with them on several issues, such as the Mandalorian Wars and their policy towards relationships. LS Revan is pretty much a bleeding heart who helps anyone who asks.
