MBTI Type: ISTP
There’s a trope about ISTP assassins that isn’t entirely unfounded; they make the best guns-for-hire, because they are able to remain detached, focused on the task at hand, to see human life in terms of a transaction, and not become emotionally involved with their mark. Django has many of these qualities; he has no moral hang-ups abut killing people for money and working with King to bring down criminals, but his motivation is also to find and free his wife. He sometimes allows his feelings to bubble up, such as when he contemplates shooting a man when he thinks perhaps his wife has been murdered on his land, but he usually calms himself down, including remaining calm when he sees a woman he cares about being mistreated. He’s a natural sharpshooter and he never misses, even at great distances. Django doesn’t say much, in comparison to the chatty King, who is full of stories and metaphors for their life. He’s the strong, silent type, who would rather act decisively in the moment, and has to be convinced to hold back in favor of the big picture. He harasses slaves, yanks people off their horses, and crushes the broken leg of his former slave trader when the man insults him. He is adept at escaping, blowing people’s heads off, and planting dynamite to blow up the home of the people who held his wife prisoner for so many years and abused her, but rarely emotes or connects to others in an emotional way apart from his deep, abiding love for his wife and his anger whenever anyone threatens her, but he can also bide his time and wait for the right moment to act. Django is willing to surrender himself to prevent her from being injured.

In sharp contrast to King, Django is willing to push people’s buttons and antagonize them, to see what they are made of. He chastises people and refuses to pay bounty to save a slave as part of his cover, then remains impartial when he sees the man ripped apart, rather than becoming emotional—because he intends to rescue his wife. But his methods are more blunt and straightforward—he would rather steal her or kill her master than fret about things like bills of sale. He gets madder and madder at the table, when Candie starts being abusive and belligerent, showing off his wife’s scars, and threatening to hurt her in the negotiation. But he’s also the “silent type.” Not interested in thrills for their own sake, just in being calm and handling situations competently and effectively without causing much fuss.
