ENTJ – Tywin Lannister

Tywin is your typical ENTJ, who is a leader and not afraid to seize opportunities. Before his own son killed him, he was the one calling all the shots. And everyone had to fall in line.

Not only was he the head of House Lannister and his own army, he then became Hand of the King for his grandson, Joffrey. So, he was acting as the king, without actually sitting on the Iron Throne. And being in charge makes him perfectly content. As long as he gets his way, he’s happy.

ENTP – Tyrion Lannister

An ENTP personality likes to surround his or herself with people whom they can have intellectual conversations. They also are logical and accept challenges with innovation and energy.

Tyrion’s entire life was a challenge. Born a dwarf, his father and sister always treated him with vitriol. So, what does he do? Makes the best of things! He read books, became intelligent, and surrounded himself with people he could talk to and entertain him. He even had a meaningful relationship with his…“girlfriend,” Shae – that is until she betrayed him.
