    Sometimes, a particular type will seem to have an extraordinary capacity or ability to do something which makes everyone's head turn.

    So, for any type, what seems to be their "superpowers"?


    Can you describe any experiences online or irl where you saw someone demonstrate these superabilities?

    *flexes muscles* well, i wasn't going to admit to this, but since you insist...

    *shoots lasers out of her elbows, covering everything around her in a layer of rainbow colored sawdust* Yep, INTPs can do that! =D impressive, no? We also have the startling and awe-inspiring (please, hold your applause until the end) ability to send our audiences to sleep in a fraction of a second.

    now you can clap.

    *listens to deafening silence*
    still got it! ;D

    INFJ's often seem psychic. We can put together bits of information that the world around them doesn't really think that it's sharing.

    ENFP's seem invincible. The world doesn't seem to affect them even at it's very worst and when it does, they bounce back.

    ESTJ's have mighty douchebag powers. Seriously, they have the capacity to offend every other personality type and then fight about it even if they're genuinely wrong.

    INTJ's seem able to navigate complex systems without getting lost. No matter how wildly outside of reason the system is so long as there is order to it an INTJ can know precisely where they are and what needs to be done.

    ENFJ's. Weaponized Cute. Seriously.

    ENTP's. If they were a super-hero, super heros would be illegal because of collateral property damage regardless of their powers. Their powers could be making kittens and puppies and someone who pissed them off would be crushed under a mountain of baby animals.

    ESTP's. Hypno-eyeball-rays that produce orgasms. Nuff'said.

    ESFP's would be like drunken Iron Man in the second movie. Awesome to be around but things would sometimes explode for no reason.

    Heee, I have a couple of ENFJ friends who are just the sweetest people you can imagine. Seriously, they have time for people regardless of how much shit is going on in their lives and they will give you a hug in a heart-beat. They're super-high affection.

    Well, I'll give a shot. Here's my take on it.

    NT's

    Would probably take on the role as the antihero, the reluctant hero or the narcissistic hero.
    Their powers would be showcased through their logic, such as building deceives to assist them, or in the case of super powers through a freak accident where powers such as personal physical powers or/and mentality-based abilities are gained, as in the case of Peter Parker (Spider-man) and Jonathan Osterman (Dr Manhattan from Watchmen).
    NT's are not usually the sort to get involved in the fight against evil unless it personally involves them, such as Bruce Wayne becoming Batman through the death of his parents or Peter Parker taking on the role of Spider-man after the death of his uncle.

    NF's
    Their powers would probably be showcased through telekinesis, ESP or elemental control. These powers would either be a natural gift or a result of a supernatural event or training such as magic. The use of these powers will be different depending on each personality type, however the INFJ and the INFP would probably showcase their powers in a discrete manner, psychologically rather than physically.

    ST's
    Like NT's, their powers would be showcased through logic and/or personal physical powers (super strength, super speed etc.). ST's like NT's would probably take on the role of the antihero (mercenary) or the hero (someone who works for the government) taking matters into their own hands or through the law. Using an eye for an eye approach, ST hero's have a strong sense of justice. ST's use their logic and factual thinking to get the job done. Gather information, hunt down the bad guy, kick the bad guy's ass and claim the prize, mission completed.

    SF's
    Have a strong sense of duty and responsibility when it comes to their powers. SF's would probably take on the role as the classic hero or the martyr. Like NF's, their powers would also be showed cased in a similar fashion, most likely though elemental control and/or personal physical powers. With their powers they would probably want to set a positive example through becoming Superman and saving the day from the villain at bay.
