Big Hero 6 MBTI
“We didn’t set out to be superheroes. But sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned.”
Hiro is inventively intelligent beyond his years, but more importantly for personality typing, is the explorative way in which he uses his mind. He is very focused on exploring new ideas and pushing limits (Ne). As an introvert, it can take a bit of encouragement to get him going when he wants to share his inventions, and it’s the thinking, analyzing, and creating that come more naturally to him (Ti-Ne). Sometimes he needs a guiding figure to show him how he can put his ideas to good use, otherwise getting more lost in continually exploring but only more independently. Hiro has great concern for the overall harmony and wellbeing of others, like Tadashi, but Fe is his inferior function and he can lose sight of that desire at times. In the end though, wanting to do something to really help people in general is a driving force for Hiro in all his future inventions and endeavors.
“There are no red lights during car chases!”
Gogo loves to be seen as strong, capable, and independent. She has a strong analytical mind (Ti), enjoying challenges that require a lot of internal logic and piecing together of information. Gogo is also a pretty intense character, strongly capable in maneuvering the physical world and greatly enjoying an even risky situation, always keeping her cool (Se). Though it’s not her dominant function either, Gogo’s Fe is also clear in the way that she full heartedly takes on the role of a superhero who benefits the greater good and works in the team.
“WOO! Now THAT’S a chemical reaction!”
Honey Lemon is unafraid to pursue enthusiastically her “nerdy” interests (Ne-Fi). She’s much more into science and thought than anything else. She also clearly places high value on staying true to what science really is, as is shown in the ways she reacts to Fred’s very non-scientific ideas (Fi). Honey Lemon loves to put her own colorful touch on her inventions, and she always exuberantly shares her passions with others (Ne-Fi).
“We can’t go up against that guy! We’re nerds!”
Wasabi’s inferior funciton, Ne (extraverted intuition) is fairly well developed in the way he loves to pursue new possibilities and is quite open to change; though the lower position of the function is also clear in the way that he always appreciates having a good plan to go with. His Si (introverted sensing) is still noticeably stronger though; Wasabi has a very keen eye for detail, and he keeps good track of which of these are important to him. He also is very meticulous, and he can be gently picky about the orderliness of his work. Wasabi is a deeply caring and gentle character.
“I’ve been trying to get Honey to develop a formula that can turn me into a fire-breathing lizard at will. But she says that's ‘not science.’”
Fred is generally very laid-back about even the wildest of events, enjoying to go with whatever comes along. He always loves it when something is very cool to him, and he really likes a good physical thrill (Se). Though he’s sometimes more concerned with having a good time or thinking about potentially awesome and/or thrilling new ideas, Fred also enjoys some serious analytical thinking (Ti).
“Listen to the kid, Callaghan. Please, l-let me go. I’ll give you anything you want!”
Alistair Krei is persuasive and talented at being in charge. He can make a good appearance, and he sometimes has more concern for how he and his endeavors will be viewed than the more human areas that could be negatively affected (unhealthy inf. Fi). He always tries first to take control of a situation.
“I want my daughter back!”
Callaghan in the beginning is an inventive and creative thinker with a kind heart. He eagerly seeks possibilities and innovation, and he urges others to do the same (Ne-Fe). He is much more into science for the sake of itself rather than selling ideas out (Ti, IN). Later on, he loses touch of his kinder side, with the desire for revenge pushing him to act unhealthfully but still in a very logical, innovative way.
“Yeah. I’m going for a non-threatening…huggable kinda thing.”
Tadashi is reserved, forward thinking, and deeply caring towards his loved ones. He shows strong emotional intelligence in the ways he looks out for Hiro. He’s also quite protective and all to readily puts his own safety and needs aside to assist or support others. Tadashi has a very Fe angle to his innovation, working very hard to create and perfect something which will primarily do a lot of good for many people.
“It is alright to cry.”
Though as a robot Baymax is not traditionally type-able, symbolically his character can represent some of the cognitive functions. Specifically, Ti (introverted thinking) and Fe (extraverted feeling). Quite literally, Baymax operates on internal logic. He has sometimes humorously logical approaches to things as a robot. Just like Fe, Baymax has the purpose of caring for others and promoting outer harmony. He’s always there when you need him, and he knows just what to do to make things better.
