So, you’ve probably heard about the 16 personality types by now. If you haven’t yet, you might be wondering what they are and how they can help you in your relationships and friendships. Yes, everyone knows about the famous four personalities: extrovert, introvert, ESTJ, or as we know it in layman’s terms, a personality type that likes to stay organized and keeps things neat (like extroverts).
But did you know there are more types than just those four? And these have something to do with your behaviour instead of just being a label placed on you because they don’t know what else to label you with. So read on if you want to learn more about the different personalities so that next time someone tries to put a label on you without knowing what it is from word one.
The 16 Personality Types
Now, if you want to know the different personality types, you might be wondering how you can determine which one you are. There are several things you can look for in yourself to help you determine your type. Here are some of the most important:
- How do you approach things as a person?
- Is your personality more about being practical and analytical or more about being creative and intuitive?
- Your social and communication skills? Do you prefer to be a more quiet or talkative person?
- How do you like to communicate with others?
- Your strengths and weaknesses?
- What qualities do you possess that make you who you are?
- In general, what are the things that make you unique and make you different from others?
- Your values- What are the things in life that are most important to you?
These are important factors that can help you determine your personality type:
INTJ personalities are logical and analytical people who are known to be great with ideas and systems. They are very curious and are always looking for ways to improve themselves and their lives. They also tend to be more independent and self-driven, which is why it can be difficult for them to find jobs that allow them to use their strengths.
These personalities are very observant of people and situations and can notice things others might miss, which is why they are great at finding patterns and making connections. They are also logical and prefer to use facts and evidence when making decisions, which can lead to them being seen as being a little bit cold and unfriendly.
INTJ personalities are often seen as creative and intelligent, although some also see them as being a little bit aloof and unfriendly. This personality type can be seen as having a high level of perfectionism, which can often cause them to have perfectionism issues.
ESTP personalities are exciting and adventurous people who like to explore new things and meet new people. They are spontaneous and like to live life on the edge, which can make them seem flighty and careless to others.
ESTP personalities are often very self-assured and comfortable in their skin and may be seen as cocky by others who don’t understand them (which is understandable, as the ESTP personality type is often seen as the most arrogant).
Although ESTP personalities can sometimes be seen as being impulsive and thoughtless, they are very caring and have a great deal of empathy for others. They are often interested in a wide range of topics, which can make it difficult to get them to decide on specific careers. These personalities are also known to be very creative, which can cause other people to see them as being unorganized and disorganized.
ISTJ personalities are known to be driven, responsible, and determined people who like order and routine in their lives. They are responsible and caring, which can be a factor in their social relationships and make them seem like the most trustworthy and reliable people in the world to others. They also like to set clear boundaries and like things to be organized and structured, so they can be seen as being a little bit controlling and uptight.
The only problem is, if you are not into that, you might be seen as being uptight and controlling by others who don’t understand you. They might not understand your need for organization and structure, especially if that is not something that comes naturally to you. This personality type is often seen as being practical and down-to-earth, although some might sometimes see them as being too serious and not playful enough.
ISTP personalities are analytical, focused, and logical people who like things to be precise and structured. They are often seen as being easygoing and calm under pressure, which can make them seem like the most reliable people in the world to others. They are also highly private and don’t like to talk about themselves or what they do a lot, which can sometimes make them seem aloof or distant from others.
They prefer to keep their lives focused on the task at hand and on what they need to get done, rather than talking about their lives or their feelings. There are times when other people might see this as being a little bit cold and unfriendly. However, if you are someone who values organization and structure in your life, ISTP personalities can be great in helping you stay organized and follow through with your goals.
ESFJ personalities are warm, welcoming, and outgoing people who are known for being genuinely caring and compassionate toward others. They are often seen as being softly-spoken and welcoming, making them the most sociable and gregarious personalities in the world. This is why ESFJ personalities are often seen as the people who are best at making friends.
However, ESFJ personalities can be a little too sociable and warm with others, which can make them seem like they are not taking care of themselves at all. They can be over-apologetic when they make mistakes and are very concerned with making everyone else happy, which can make them seem like they are not taking care of themselves.
This personality type can be seen as having warmth and friendliness, although ESFJ personalities often have a hard time letting people down gently and saying “no” when they feel like they have taken on too much.
ENTJ personalities are often seen as being very confident, assertive, and driven people who like to lead and make decisions. They are very ambitious and are always looking for new ways to grow, which can make others see them as being a little bit cocky or arrogant. However, when it comes to relationships, ENTP personalities are known to be the most loyal and committed of all the personality types.
They are also known to be very creative and analytical people, which can sometimes make them seem aloof and a little bit distant. They might not always be the warmest and most welcoming people in social situations, which can make them seem a little bit cold and unfriendly. However, when it comes to their relationships and the people they are committed to, ENTP personalities are known to have a very high level of commitment.
ENFP personalities are warm, friendly, and outgoing people who are often attracted to careers that involve helping others while teaching and inspiring them. They are often seen as being very creative, imaginative, and enthusiastic people who might seem a little bit flighty or playful to others. ENFP personalities are often seen as being impulsive and spontaneous, which means they are often seen as being a little bit messy and disorganized.
They are also known to be very open-minded and accepting people, which can sometimes make them seem like they are not keeping their values and morals in mind. ENFP personalities are often seen as being creative, imaginative, and very accepting people, which makes them seem like rare and unique types of people.
