Law & Order: SVU MBTI

Olivia Benson
ISFJ [The Defender]

ISFJs live in a world that is concrete and kind. They are truly warm and kind-hearted, and want to believe the best of people. They value harmony and cooperation, and are likely to be very sensitive to other people’s feelings. People value the ISFJ for their consideration and awareness, and their ability to bring out the best in others by their firm desire to believe the best. ISFJs have a rich inner world that is not usually obvious to observers. They constantly take in information about people and situations that is personally important to them, and store it away. This tremendous store of information is usually startlingly accurate, because the ISFJ has an exceptional memory about things that are important to their value systems.  More so than other types, ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings, as well as other people’s feelings. They do not usually express their own feelings, keeping things inside. If they are negative feelings, they may build up inside the ISFJ until they turn into firm judgments against individuals which are difficult to unseed, once set.


Elliot Stabler
ESTJ [The Guardian]

ESTJs live in a world of facts and concrete needs. They live in the present, with their eye constantly scanning their personal environment to make sure that everything is running smoothly and systematically. They honor traditions and laws, and have a clear set of standards and beliefs. They expect the same of others, and have no patience or understanding of individuals who do not value these systems. They value competence and efficiency, and like to see quick results for their efforts. When bogged down by stress, an ESTJ often feels isolated from others. They feel as if they are misunderstood and undervalued, and that their efforts are taken for granted. Although normally the ESTJ is very verbal and doesn’t have any problem expressing themselves, when under stress they have a hard time putting their feelings into words and communicating them to others. 


John Munch
INTP [The Thinker]

INTPs value knowledge above all else. Their minds are constantly working to generate new theories, or to prove or disprove existing theories. They approach problems and theories with enthusiasm and skepticism, ignoring existing rules and opinions and defining their own approach to the resolution. They seek patterns and logical explanations for anything that interests them. They’re usually extremely bright, and able to be objectively critical in their analysis. INTPs do not like to lead or control people. They’re very tolerant and flexible in most situations, unless one of their firmly held beliefs has been violated or challenged, in which case they may take a very rigid stance. The INTP is likely to be very shy when it comes to meeting new people. On the other hand, the INTP is very self-confident and gregarious around people they know well, or when discussing theories which they fully understand.

Trump signs three more executive orders — all on crime prevention

  • Trump signed three executive orders Thursday after swearing in Jeff Sessions. They are:
  • Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety
    • In this executive order, Trump declares, “It shall be the policy of the executive branch to reduce crime in America.”
    • In order to do that, the order calls on Sessions to create the Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety
  • Preventing Violence Against Federal, State, Tribal, and Local Law Enforcement Officers
    • This calls on the Department of Justice to “further enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal and local law enforcement officers,” within the boundaries of the Constitution.
    • It also calls on the DOJ to review whether existing laws are “adequate” to protect law enforcement officers.
  • Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking
    • The final executive order says “transnational criminal organizations” — such as drug cartels, human trafficking groups and hackers — have “spread throughout the nation, threatening the safety of the United States and its citizens.”
    • It calls for the executive branch to “strengthen enforcement of Federal law in order to thwart transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including criminal gangs, cartels, racketeering organizations, and other groups engaged in illicit activities that present a threat to public safety and national security.” Read more (2/9/17 3:18 PM)

HUFFLEPUFF: “A man has only the rights he can defend. Our most basic right is life… Every murder, whether in Brooklyn, Santiago, Rwanda or Kosovo, demands punishment by whatever legal means possible. Otherwise, the right to life is just an empty promise.” –René Balcer + Richard Sweren (Jack McCoy: Law and Order: Vaya Con Dios)
