Obi Wan Quotes

Obi Wan is one of the most important characters in the Starwars series and hence he is also known for his infamous quotes that show his true character and the sincerity and commitment he has towards others.

In this article, we will take a look at his most famous quotes. However, we will also look at who he is and what his personality type is.

Who Is Obi Wan?

Obi Wan Kenobi is one of the famous characters of the Starwars series who plays the role of a mentor to both Luke Skywalker and Anakin. He has a great role in the fate of the galaxy and this shapes his long and tumultuous career!

He is also mentored by the Grand Master Yoda – they later realize together that Luke Skywalker has turned over to the dark side and has led attacks against Jedis.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was born in 57 BBY, the first son of a moderately wealthy family, and was taken to Coruscant to begin his Jedi training while still in his infancy. His homeworld was Stewjon, from which Kenobi himself believed that he had once visited, possessing vague, pleasant memories of playing with his brother, Owen. In reality, Kenobi would later conclude that these memories were visions from the Force of Owen Lars. The fraternity he felt between himself and Owen was true, from a certain point of view. As Kenobi felt a brotherly bond with his former student, Lars too would be his brother.

Obi Wan Kenobi – INFJ

Being an INFJ or ‘Advocate’ means you stand up for what is right and speak passionately about what you believe in even though these people are introverts generally, intuitive and feel and judge.  

These individuals strongly believe in justice and are altruistic in nature, extending a warm welcome to those who approach them. However, sometimes they are so focused on their intent they forget about themselves. 

Obi Wan Kenobi does not have an issue staying on his own, he likes to deal with the present and looks towards the tradition for guidance as well. He is diplomatic in his ways but that does not stop him from pursuing what is the truth!

The typical INFJs have a very thoughtful approach to life where they are absorbed in their creativity, values, deep thinking and inner vision!

Although they aim high and have a sense of creating the perfect world, they are not blinded by their idealism and realize they need to take concrete steps in order to make the world reflect their inner vision of it where people have justice and are treated well. They like to stand up for others and connect to them on a deeper level.

They focus on their thoughts – they are creative, have deep insights and are passionate about what they believe in!

They want to create the perfect world and here their creativity comes into play. With such an imaginative pattern of thought they are able to find diverse solutions to an array of problems people face. This is combined with their principled thoughts that allows them to remain consistent, get through difficult times and serve as an inspiration for others.

These people are very sensitive to criticism. They reflect on it deeply to the extent that it may reduce their productivity and make them feel as if they lag much when in reality that criticism is targeted at a specific element. This may also be because of the fact that they aim to become perfectionists – aiming to be the best version of themselves.

As they are quite sensitive, INFJs are reluctant to open up and may be difficult to understand – this can sometimes create problems in relationships where people are curious to learn more about the other.
