Voted INTP. At first I couldn't tell if he was ISTP or INTP, but watching further, I noticed that he used a lot of Si and Ne in his reasoning, whereas his Se moments are far and few in beween. "You can never overthink something, there are probably situations that we've not considered yet" This is the best quote from him that solidifies his type as INTP in my mind, it just screams TiNe.
I'm sorry Natsume*
Killua is considered one of those "cool" Intps, similar to Reiko from Natsumi's book of friends
He's clearly INTP. He acts like he's different (maybe ESTP), but that's just part of his training.
Type 7 are extrovert, and killua is introvert, problably INTP 5, 6 or 9.
I think he is 6w7 or 7w6
Why ESTP, why 6w5?? tell more about that.
He seems ESTP to me, but I think he appears otherwise because of his apprehensive 6w5 nature.
I can't see Se-dom, Ti-dom makes more sense i agree with INTP 5w4, and i can see ISTP and ENTP and sometimes he seems like INFP, but he's logical, smart, intuitive and solver problem Ti-dom makes more sense.
He's not an Fi user, he's not so feelerish usually, he just had a rough past
He seems like an ESTP to me, he's too aggressive and extroverted to be an introvert. Just his overall demeanor. A lot of ExTPs I know have one friend in particular that they're really attached to and that's the case with Killua, he cares deeply about Gon
I personally lean towards INTP, but INFP is a close runner up.
Killua as fi user? Really? Where's the proof? I see more fe than fi.
"Picking out potential challengers."- some kind of Fe or Ni functions. Yes i agree with ISTP, makes sense.
For hisoka however, I personally feel that he is an istp. I won't really elaborate here but he seems to be an opportunist. Also Isn't it weird that hisoka went for the hunter exam? I mean I don't think he mentioned his motives. Well my theory is that he is only there to scavenge for his "unripe fruits", picking out potential challengers.
Well, it's not that he wants to adventure the world because he is interested but it seems that he wants to hang out with Gon. He doesn't have anywhere to go, with no plans whatsoever. Of course going home is out of the question since he does not want to live being controlled by his family. He really just wants to hang around with Gon and hopefully find an ultimate goal of his own while at it.
Nah, while Hisoka is brewing fantasies inside his head, Killua is out exploring and interacting with the world.
He's more INxP than Hisoka. Ne/Si is clearly.
I don't really think he is Ti dom but if he is he is definitely INTP not ISTP. He's certainly an NP.
He is definitely IXTP from what I have read in the manga but I guess he is leaning more towards the INTP side. Well, in GI arc for example, when he was fighting one of the Bomber Devils, he was not really taking the fight seriously and was experimenting with his new techniques. He is seened to be using new ways and experimenting throughout the series. Also Killua is extremely logical and often theorises, this can be seen especially prominent in the Chimera ant arc for example, when he theorised the reasoning behind the disappearance of Pitou's en.
"Killua also questions a lot of things, as a feeler wouldn't" Both feelers and thinkers can have Ne. "If he was an INFP he would probably unwillingly (more or less) had kept with his family." Why? I don't think so. "It's also evident that he's feeling trait is weak at the end of the series, when he's with Alluka and all he does is cry." How does that make his feeling trait less evident? I actually thought the opposite. When he was with Alluka there seemed to be Fi. "On top of that he gets embarrassed by some things Gon says, when I imagine a feeler might not., in those circumstances." Feelers can definitely feel uncomfortable in those situations too." He also doesn't like expressing his feelings in front of others, which I believe is more common for thinkers." Feelers can also be like that.
Well, I meant thinking in general, but Te in INFPs case......I'm so sorry.
I also meant; use Ti to justify the way they feel. Again sorry.
I meant with an open minded character, sorry.
'Cause feelers tend to use fi to justify the way they feel, leading to poor logic like; it's bad to swear because it sounds bad. They usually have a reaction than justify it with their weak Ti. Obviously, to a really open minded character, this would be hard to notice, but with Leorio as an example it's evident. Killua also questions a lot of things, as a feeler wouldn't. If he was an INFP he would probably unwillingly (more or less) had kept with his family. It's also evident that he's feeling trait is weak at the end of the series, when he's with Alluka and all he does is cry. On top of that he gets embarrassed by some things Gon says, when I imagine a feeler might not., in those circumstances. He also doesn't like expressing his feelings in front of others, which I believe is more common for thinkers. His logic is also very stellar throughout the series, when a feelers wouldn't be.
I am starting to question my MBTI vote as well. Why Ti over Fi?
Maybe 6w5 or 5w6 would fit better... I'm not sure anymore really.
Killua might seem like a 6w5 or 5w6, but if you watch Hunter x Hunter completely 5w4 might makes more sense. At least for me. It may depend on which version you watched as well. I have only watched the 2011 version.
I was wrong the comment, it was for Hisoka, but already now I take and say Killua is not a 6w5 he is a 5w4.
He have clearly (Fe) inferior, xxTP for sure.
I actually went to ask my source and it turns out it might had been just speculation on that forum rather than a tweet or something. Sorry. Anyways I doubt we will see more of Killua really. He is a good example of a T type showing emotion and a lot of inner doubt.
I doubt that the most popular character would get left out of a whole arc. Gon may be the mascot, but Killua carries the fanbase.
Or maybe are you talking about the "He is back " picture ? If that's the case, it only concerns the end of the hiatus.
I've not heard about that Gon declaration , where did you see it ?
He does lead sometimes and works well with the group but he is also very quiet and sulky a lot of the time. He never opened up to any one other than Gon and his little brother (yes he's a boy). He flat out states he doesn't care about the others. But Im out of arguments. Off topic: Togashi actually said Gon was coming back, the only one left out will be Killua since his arc ended. My statement was more hopeful, I really want to see what he is up to in his spare time.
And the new chapters to be published wont show Killua i think, he has been put aside - like Gon, to focus on other characters (Kurapika, Leolio, Ging)
I did not say that he was extrovert for these reasons but rather, they made him appear as introvert.To pursue on why he's an extrovert, looking at his general behavior (since i can see a pretty good balance between Ne and Ti), the guy on an assembly always lead the debate, like a typical ENTP will try to do ( Greed Island meeting before flying to Razor's town for example), while introverts limit more their interventions (Ging, Hisoka, Chrollo). Gon his only intimate friend ? Gon also said that Killua was his first and only friend and we dont doubt about his extroversion. When Killua said that he prefers working alone it was about an infiltration mission, no one can say its a bad idea, so these have nothing to do with his potential introversion or extroversion. BTW, Morel is also a Ti user but its only his second judging function since his Fe is quite huge.
I saw a clear Ti-Ne combo at work during the palace invasion. He went through every single possibility in his mind and what that meant logically. He even correctly deduced the king harmed himself by constant questioning of the events. Of course I'm not saying non Ne/Ti preference can't do that but it does contrasts with Morel's Te decided doubting was a waste and deemed the situation irrelevant to keep the group focused. Yet I'm still refraining from voting until we see the last of Togashi (whose "Intp-ness" flows to his manga ).
He is not extrovert. He is open towards other people and yes he was not allowed any friends but that doesn't mean he is extroverted. When he finally got out the first thing he wanted was to do something challenging, might indicate Se or Ne. He wanted to become friends with Gon once he saw the possibility but he hasn't really gotten any other intimate friendships besides maybe Ikalgo (the octopus). He even amusingly remembered Leorio's name wrong. Surely he does have Fe since he tends to go with the values of the Group but it's not one of his leading functions. He also said himself that he works alone better to Gon of all people. KIllua also doesn't reveal much about himself. His only meaningful relationships are his (brother/sister) and Gon. He works well in a group but doesn't actually look for one. I'm thinking INTP but since we are getting more chapters on April we might get the chance to see more on what he does when he is not in a mission.
He's an ENTP in my opinion. While i thought he was an introvert i come to think that this "apparence" has greatly to do with his twisted family. No friends allowed, no trip outside the house except for job, no passion - the only occupation is to kill people, introversion is forced in these conditions. During the flashback with the apprentice butler Canary we can see that when young he was quite prone to open contact to others first. The trip with Gon progressively unbridled him and then again he started to feel alive. His analytical nature, specially the fact that every single thing he hears, sees, reads or whatever passes under his logical test points toward TI. I think Gon would approve, him who struggles to follow his friend's reasoning process.
Ne dom or auxiliary.
When HxH 2011 starts killua it looked more happy go lucky and more extrovert, some kind of XNTP; his brother appeared and many things happened, and in the end it was something like XNFP. he's clearly "NP" type.
I'm not arguing with anyone, I was only stating my observations and remaining flexible with them (I have not come to a decision yet on his type). And the only way he'd be a hybrid would be if he was a minor side character with inconsistent appearances. Because of trauma types can look like others and multiple kinds, but their core type will remain the same (unless the writing is poorly done). However I dont really know what killua is asides from the fact that he probably uses Ne of some kind.
Well, in the end, he is originally written, as a mixture of many types. So everyone is basically stating, the type of what image, they have in their head, as Killua. So it comes down to, which individual type, he acts as the most. Maybe we should drop this conversation? 'Cause he's always gonna be a hybrid, like that Armin guy said earlier.
Yeah. Idk for sure if he's INTP or ENFP, I was just putting out some observations. I do think that he's NP though, for sure, and more than likely an xNTP. But I'll remain towards hearing good NFP arguments. And unless you're talking about me personally, I don't see why you're bringing up your INFP interpretation of Hisoka here when this isn't even his page.
His rebellion isn't where the Fi shows through. The rebellion is actually more like Ne and the need to be able to create his own path, moreso than an intense moral focus. I don't see very strong Ti or Fi to be honest. Yeah he is smart but that doesn't there is no intelligence function. He also is trained to approach everything very analytically, yet he really just wants freedom. The "need for flexibility" that you speak of is very much associated with Ne, especially in its dominant form. It would also make sense that an Ne-dom with his upbringing would be much more calm and controlled and not show outwardly chaotic behavior. He also really just wants to have fun and doesn't mind chasing Gon's tail with no purpose of his own, as long as the adventure remains a good ride. This all points to Ne, rather than Ti or Fi as his dominant function. It is actually the non-canon 1999 anime which presents him as more detached and less of a fun-loving adventurer. and where I really see the INTP typing making sense. I don't think he is INFP in any version because even if he uses Fi it is never to dominant level. Hisoka goes around seeking something which creates an intense, strong feeling while Killua is not nearly as focused on that. Which is why my best guess for Killua is ENTP, and Hisoka INFP.
It's a mistake to type by anime and it shows grasping at straws. The manga is the actual canon and in that he's Ti dom (he's also Ti dom in all other media, but that's redundant to say). For the Fi argument I can already see people saying bc of "His need to rebel against his family and do what he wants", but that's not Fi, that's being a human being. Any sane person would want to deviate from a family as broken as his. The kid is traumatized (mainly shown the beginning, he's gotten much better since), but trauma is not always Si based. However, I don't see a lot of Se in him since he's really not as nearly as responsive physically as the other characters, and that's saying something considering that he comes from a family of elite assassins. He's also not nearly as impulsive or aggressive as an Se user is (he even manages to keep ESFP Gon in line). Also, if he was Se/Fe I believe that he would lash out more often, especially since he's so stressed out. Yes, an damaged ISTP like this wouldn't really use their Se since they'd feel hopeless, but I don't see Ni in him either. For his enneagram, I sincerely believe that he's a 7w6. His defense is flexibility followed by a need for security. He's described wanting to do his own thing, but I really haven't heard or seen anything about him wanting to be original or unique. He copes by remaining flexible, which is type 7. Not so sure about other types, but maybe a 5w6. I'm certain about the w6 though.
It's called argumentative, faggot. You can't even spell, baka! I hope you die! Signing Out - Kevin
I dislike how this is currently a conversation between 3 people. 3 people who could possibly know nothing. Anyway, I don't see him being remotely extroverted in anyway. I also find that INTP's are generally more talkative and argumentive than INFP's, but I could be completely wrong about that. I'm in no way an expert on MBTI's, but that is my view on it. And it is also true that INFP's generally are more often 4w5 but that doesn't necessarily make him an INFP. I would also like more people's opinion on what his enneagram might be.
Yes, 4w5 make more sense and INFP, the most of type 4 are IxFx. INFP it's the mbti personality perfect to describe type 4 of enneagram.
Yes Killua and Gon are different but that doesn't necessarily mean that their types are different. He is also the polar opposite of 3. Just look at his attitude toward friendship and his interactions with people in general. I think there is a case for both Gon and (2011) Killua being ENFP - Gon as a 7w8 and Killua as a 4w5.
Translate*, sorry but i'm spanish and i have to some dificulties to express my idea, but gon he's clearly type 7 of enneagram easy going, go-lucky, funny, and he likes motivate others,classic ENFP.
Traduzir About, enneagram type my vote goes to 3w4,i think he's a type 3 because, he has a difficult to get loyalty from others, he has a wing 4 pretty sure, and the most of the time he wants competition against gon, and has difficulty in showing its weaknesses.
2011 Killua = ENxP, 1999 Killua = INTP
Theory: Those who watched the 1999 series first may type him as IxTP or Enneagram 5/6. I am not one of those people so it's hard for me to see him as such. In both shows he's still N though.
He is Enneagram 4 or 7. There is very little 5 or 6 about him, except for the needle in his head, which definitely is a 6. I'd be curious where anyone gets 5 from. While being analytical, he tends to shy away from thinking too hard about something.
Yes, He's probably 5w4 or 4w5; 5w6 are very intelligent one of the most intelligent type of enneagram, killua is very intelligent too, but he a have wing 4 because he's melancholy and unsatisfied sometimes.
I also don't see why he would be a wing 6. Can someone explain that to me? The only person he's really loyal to is Gon, and who wouldn't be? As for his family and everyone else there isn't much loyalty.
He seems to be an INTP, but I'm biased, so I'll refrain from voting...
He seems very attached to the past to be Se ... he tries to seek connections with Gon to live free but can not ignore what happened before and always conflicts with the cycle. I believe he is well xNxP.
Nah, he's either INTP or ISTP.
INFP 4w5 no doubts.
He is difficult to type, I will admit. The poor boy has been through a lot of trauma. He's been getting better after hanging out with Gon, but he's still pretty screwed up. Also, MBTI is not really personality based, if that makes sense. It's based more in the cognitive functions of a person and how they take in information. So, a screwed up kid like him will be hard to type.
His personality changes. Whatever you want to call that change in personality doesn't really matter ("hybrid type", foodunkus or whatever). Sometimes he is like an ENFP and sometimes he is like an INTP.
There is no such thing as a hybrid type when it comes to MBTI. Hes probably INFP, i think that fits him best
He's not an ENTP or INFP. When his Ne dominates, it is followed by Fi. When he uses Ti, it dominates his Ne. It doesn't play second fiddle. He's a hybrid INTP/ENFP.
Ok I take back my comments about having sensing characteristics - really all of his perceiving can be explained by Ne, and Ne does make sense as dominant. xNxP is certain at the very least.
That describes him as a result of his training and needle. But once he liberates himself I think he's more of an Ne-dom feeling type (ENFP).
also > has a tendency to do things on a whim to avoid boredom; w/ no set goals/ambitions in mind (in non-stressful/dangerous situations; otherwise he's very (overly?) cautious and strategic, but flexible with his plans as i stated below (aha). )
IxTP more N than S , but still showing characteristics of S (also present but underdeveloped F traits) to quote myself : "He’s not really the type to thoroughly plan things in advance, he’s pretty capable of adapting to new situations changes; living a relatively flexible and open -ended lifestyle. (Showing P re: his decision making skills in relation to outside forces. His strategies are usually overly cautious and tend to leave some room for error if something goes wrong or if who/what he’s facing is seemingly stronger/more powerful than he i; changing plans based on new information He does not actually have any goals or ambitions for himself, and does not really give the appearance of taking things seriously/gives off a lax vibe in order to keep from seeming affected by upsetting things (& to seem more likeable/approachable to others, either on purpose(to lower someone’s defenses/use for his own purposes) or subconsciously (not being fully authentic about his feelings/emotions/wants to remain on good terms w people that he feels close to(gon) (( which is specific to Fe cognitive functions expressed in INTPs . ) effectively causing him to be emotionally withdrawn, and bottle up his feelings —> triggering catastrophizing thought process from lack of communication (unhealthy introverted thinking/internal dialogue ( + trauma/abuse ))." ((though...rlly only v certain about IN(maybe S)Tx
Closer to INTP than anything although he definitely has some extroverted and sensing characteristics. If the mangaka is indeed INTP as is voted here, it would be a possible explanation of three somewhat important INTPs in the story (Killua, Hisoka, and Ging). Although all of them are debatable of course.
Why does everyone see him as INxx? He's clearly an ISTP. Analytical at times, yes, but ISTPs can be that too. Explains why he gets along so well with Gon, they're both Artisans.
Clear INTJ. One of the most intuitive there but his logic is objective (Te) rather than subject. He's not about better understanding the world, he uses his intuition and applies it to efficient actions. Quite Strategic. He and Gon compliment each other as Gon is ESFP.
