Keanu Reeves has always been one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but 2019 has been an especially big year for him. Not only has he starred in a number of huge acclaimed movies, but the public, in general, seems to have clued into how great of a person he is in real life. Reeves has become a sensation on the internet, making him a beloved figure beyond the movies.
As charming and kind as Reeves seems in real life, he has also created some classic cinematic characters over the years. Reeves can play the heroic action star just as well as he can play the lovable goofball. If you want to find out which of these characters best fits your own personality, have a look at the Myers Briggs Type Indicator of personality types for Keanu Reeves characters.
10 John Constantine (Constantine): INTP
John Constantine is one of the darker characters Reeves has played. He is a man who is cursed to live among demons and angels while on earth and who knows he must go to Hell when he finally does die. He is also a very determined man who works extremely hard to accomplish his goals.
Like most INTP personalities, Constantine is not an easy person to get along with. He is reserved and doesn’t like getting close to people. He prefers to work alone, but when he is on the job, he’s highly effective. He creates workable theories and investigates until he can find effective solutions to the problems.
9 Duke Caboom (Toy Story 4): INTJ
Duke Caboom is one of the new characters introduced in Toy Story 4 and completely steals the show. Voiced by Reeves, Duke is an action figure who is dubbed as Canada’s greatest stuntman. Sadly he has some trouble following through on his stunts after being rejected by his former owner for not following through on the promise of the commercial.
Duke’s outrageous personality is a clear INTJ type. Despite his shortcomings, he is a very determined toy that wants nothing more than to give his full effort. He has great vision for his plans and turns them into actions. As we see with his criticism of Woody’s plans, he holds himself and everyone else to high standards.
8 Don John (Much Ado About Nothing): INFJ
Reeves doesn’t often get a chance to play the villain, nor flex his Shakespearan acting muscles, but Much Ado About Nothing gave him the opportunity for both. Reeves plays Don John, the bastard brother of the respected Don Pedro. Don John is bitter about how his bastard status makes him an outcast and devises a plan for revenge.
As an INFJ personality, Don John stays in his own company rather than follow others. He is intuitive about others and is able to exploit that. He is quiet, but driven and will not stop until he sees his plans carried out to the end.
7 Johnny Utah (Point Break): ISTP
Point Break is one of the many classic action films Reeves has starred in and his character of Johnny Utah is one of his best hero roles. Utah is a determined and driven young FBI agent but his ISTP personality really begins to shine through when he gets involved with a group of extreme sport outlaws.
Utah naturally takes to their wild lifestyle as ISTP types are known to be risk-takers. As he becomes closer to the group he’s attempting to shut down, he develops a strong loyalty to them, as well as staying loyal to his job. But despite being a lawman, he’s unconcerned with breaking the rules when needed.
6 Ted Theodore Logan (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure): ESTP
These days, we don’t often get to see the silly side of Keanu Reeves, but that is how he was introduced to many moviegoers with his role as Ted in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures. As a lovable yet dim wannabe rockstar, Ted is one of Reeves’ most entertaining characters and a clear ESTP personality.
Ted is a doer, not a thinker. Long explanations bore him and he’s more interested in getting the straight answer as quickly and easily as possible. He is a very loyal friend and with great people skills. He is fun-loving and enjoys a fast-paced lifestyle.
5 Keanu Reeves (Always Be My Maybe): ISFP
Always Be My Maybe is a charming Netflix romantic comedy starring Ali Wong and Randall Park as two friends who begin falling for each other. However, it is Reeves who steals the show as an exaggerated version of himself. Reeves is having a lot of fun poking fun at his image and he presents himself as a definite ISFP personality.
Reeves is seen as an incredibly open-minded and thoughtful person, even to an extreme. He is a great admirer of beauty and has a very easy-going approach to anything. He makes a big deal about following his own path and being a free-spirit which feels like it might be close to the real Keanu Reeves.
4 Kevin Lomax (The Devil’s Advocate): INFJ
In The Devil’s Advocate, Kevin Lomax is an extremely successful young lawyer who is hired to work for a big-city law firm. Kevin gradually discovers his new job and new boss are much darker than they first appeared. As we see Kevin’s descent into darkness, we get a sense of his INFJ personality.
Lomax is a noble man who strives to do the right thing. He is continually tested and tempted with sin throughout the film, but ultimately, he resists and does what he thinks is best. He is an extremely hard worker and wants to serve in positions that recognize his talents. He is also intuitive of others which helps make him an excellent lawyer.
3 Neo (The Matrix): INTJ
Neo is a man who goes through some huge changes over the course of the Matrix series. He begins the story as a mild-mannered office worker and gradually becomes the savior of humanity. However, his INTJ personality is quite clear through his entire arc.
Like other INTJ personalities, Neo looks at the bigger picture and searches for meaning. When he discovers his unique abilities, he strives to become better and pushes himself to extremes. Despite being the person everyone looks to as a leader, he is comfortable following those he trusts.
2 Jack Traven (Speed): INFP
INFP personalities are interested in serving humanity. This fits quite well with the hero-cop character of Jack Traven from Speed. Jack is someone who wants to help people and keep them safe. He is willing to put himself in dangerous situations to ensure he succeeds in his mission of helping the innocent.
Jack is a quick-thinker, able to problem solve in high-stress scenarios. He is also good at adapting. Sometimes his solutions are creative (maybe even dangerous) but he can read a situation and determine the best possible outcome.
1 John Wick (John Wick): ISTJ
John Wick has quickly become one of Reeves’ most iconic characters. Appearing in three movies to date, John Wick is an extremely deadly man who is unstoppable when he sets his mind to something. That certainly sounds like an ISTJ personality.
ISTJ people are very thorough and dependable. If you wrong John Wick, you can depend on him to make sure you’re punished appropriately. He prefers a peaceful life, but when his values and beliefs are targeted, he fights back. He is organized and has clear goals. And he will complete whatever goal he has in mind, no matter how many people he needs to kill.
