What is Markiplier’s Personality Type?
The specificity of Markiplier’s personality can be summed up by his nostalgic yearning for his roots – a “paradise lost” which is also a source of energy and vitality. His power is linked to memory. He inhabits a present which draws sustenance from the past, from continuity and timelessness. The power of memory can either be dynamic or static. The consciousness of an inaccessible past can either immobilize him in melancholy and nostalgia, or shine as an ideal which motivates him to recreate a new harmony. His attitude and approach to the past are of key importance. If he thinks of it as a refuge, his obsession with it may be such that his progress is impeded. If, on the contrary, he thinks of it as a starting point or launching pad for his comprehension of the human condition, he will integrate it into his self-realization process. He possesses a potential for great maturation and wisdom.
He is relatively slow-moving and may feel protected from the outer world by an armor of education, family surroundings (his most cherished environment), and social status. For this reason, he tends to limit the scope of his activities to a single well-defined sphere, and, within the boundaries he has established, release the entire spectrum of his rich and varied emotional expression. Sometimes he may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of situations which will introduce him to unfamiliar factors and elements; he sees them as intrusions. Before he judges an event, a person, or a thing, he attempts to absorb it into his private universe. Of a fairly subjective and introverted turn of mind, he defines everything in terms of the sensation it arouses in him as his consciousness embraces it. This predominance of sensation gives his extreme sensory finesse. His perceptions are intense, keen, penetrating right to the heart of people and things. His imagination, which is a function of his perceptions, is also lively, colorful, and prolific.
Because he is sometimes self-centered, attentive to and protective of his inner self, he may tend to withdraw into his shell when he encounters aggression from the outer world. As a result, he may sometimes become distant and secretive. His tendency to be rather short-tempered and easily offended, a classic flaw, is also the consequence of his need for protection and security. Despite his sensitivity, and his ability to be genuinely virtuous, he is not always gentle. His outbreaks of hostility are all the more wounding because of their rarity. However, more than aggressiveness, his stubbornness, slow insistence, and undying determination are the extremes which may complicate his life.
Once again, the family setting is vitally important to him. His attachment to his family in general and his mother or a mother figure, in particular, is deep. The way he resolves (or has resolved) the transition to adulthood and independence will be crucial to his well-being, both in terms of his inner harmony (the sensation and sensitivity which comprise his identity) and in terms of his romantic relationships.
Due to the influence of Capricorn rising, Markiplier has a personality which may seem somewhat aloof, withdrawn, and introspective. In fact, Markiplier is not inclined to submit to anyone’s influence, and leads the independent, solitary life of the individualist. Sometimes skeptical (if not pessimistic) and resigned, Markiplier is still shrewd and objective in Markiplier’s insights and judgments. Markiplier has a fairly severe, “no-frills” vision of life, and only the pure, bare essence really matters to Markiplier. Impatient and sometimes restless, Markiplier sometimes chafes under the limits and restraints of social realities and convention. Fairly rebellious by nature, Markiplier sees Markiplier as striving for freedom from the bonds of earthly existence, which Markiplier finds confining. Markiplier’s personal stability tends to be founded on enduring values – philosophical or scientific facts in relation to spiritual values. Sometimes Markiplier seems detached and weary, or disillusioned, and Markiplier does not appreciate the social whirl. Markiplier does not readily express Markiplier’s feelings and emotions, but deep inside, Markiplier has great sensitivity. Markiplier’s sense of time, a true instinct, is very important. It rules and coordinates all of Markiplier’s activities.
Markiplier has high social aspirations. Markiplier believes that by gaining total control of their intellect, feelings, and instincts, they can achieve them.
Markiplier has a strong personality; he is sometimes a little self-centered. His fate is in his own hands!
At the time of Markiplier’s birth, his rising sign was located in Capricorn (the Goat), while the sun was passing through the sign of Cancer (the Crab). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide his personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of his character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Sensitivity – Need for security – Imagination – Inhibition – Eccentricity – Application – Savings and thrift – Methodical mind – Suspicion – Forethought – Obstinacy – Loyalty – Premonition.
In appearance he is stable, serene, and even placid. But this thick outer shell merely conceals and protects a pool of exquisite sensitivity. He keeps his fertile imagination in check with cold and uncompromising logic, and represses the impulses from his heart with systematic wariness, or perhaps even painful denial. Persistent and serious, he generally takes action with calm, forethought, and method.
His concern for the future, which sometimes turns to anxiety, is expressed by a penchant for savings and parsimoniousness. This form of expression is reflected in his attitude toward his emotional bonds: he intends for them to be lasting and deep. Torn between his need for independence and his hunger for affection, he will go through a series of intense and exclusive involvements interspersed with periods of solitude he will find more or less unbearable. Maturity should bring him the wisdom to find a balance and reconcile the opposing tendencies tugging at him. At that point, all of his talents and faculties will find effective expression.
Born in the seven to ten days after the full moon rose, Markiplier is of the “last quarter” lunar type. As a result, his personality is fairly independent and self-sufficient. His ideas are original and often bold, but, to his dismay, do not often garner a majority of followers.
His sense of humor is his best communications tool, but he often switches to a more severe tone which breaks his charm over his audience, and his methods do not always please the masses.
His lack of flexibility hinders his strategies and projects, and he would gain by developing his sense of diplomacy and tact. Although he is not unduly attached to success, because he is so used to being ahead of his time, his failures take a psychological toll on him. Because each setback wears him down a little more, he should try to avoid further disappointments by conforming to contemporary reality a little more closely.
