#14 Kamishiro Rize - ENTP Anime Characters

Anime: Tokyo Ghoul 
ENTP Personality Breakdown:

The first ghoul who encounters Kaneki Ken, Kamishiro Rize, is a seductive and charismatic woman who could lure victims into satiating her need to consume human flesh. 

Rize first met Ken Kaneki at the beginning of the series. Kaneki was infatuated with her. Kamishiro uses this knowledge to her advantage. Rize carefully traps him and is about to finish him off when steel beams descend upon her, mutilating most of her body. Akihiro Kanou transplants her organs into Kaneki’s body and keeps her alive for his own purposes. 

Rize enjoyed her life as a ghoul, even though she had little control over her urges, which signifies her spontaneity. As a hunter, she is cunning and manipulative. The violet-haired glutton has a dynamic persona, and she is Ne-dominant, i.e., Rize has extroverted intuition. She is an excellent example of an unhealthy ENTJ.

The red-haired maniac recognized Gon’s potential during the Hunter Selection exam. Hisoka is a keen observer who was also a member of the Phantom Troupe. 

Hisoka doesn’t live in the moment. He constantly searches for prospective combatants capable of giving him a worthy fight. This is the primary reason for his fascination with Gon Freecss and Chrollo Lucifer. Unlike Uvogin, who is an ESTP reveling in the heat of battle, Hisoka prefers psychological warfare, and using his wit to conquer his opponents gives him a significant high. In short, the red-haired clown lives for the challenge. 

Unreserved and a Ne-dom (Extraverted Intuition), Hisoka is an ENTJ always hunting for strong adversaries.

Jae hopes to avoid his fate, as he has no intention of serving Yona, the reincarnation of King Hiryuu.
