If the internet wasn’t such a prominent feature in our lives, I doubt I would have gone down the rabbit-hole. But, as it is, I go down the rabbit-hole far more than I’d like to (thanks Quora!). And one of my topics of interest is MBTI.
I am super keen on psychology, identifying trends in personality and taking a deeper look into the human nature. MBTI allows me to learn about people, so I thought if Instagram can do a tag, why not WordPress?
Credit majorly due to @mbti_characters who created this tag, but I have tweaked it a bit.

- My Type According to 16 Personalities:
I really do not mind looking like a fool in the pursuit of the adventure of being alive. I feel like I’m a reserved ambivert. I enjoy exchanging ideas & advocating causes but not so much talking about my feels, ya feel? Sometimes I doubt both my extroversion & introversion, that’s how I know I’m an ambi.
- Fictional Characters & Celebrities That Share My Type & Which Ones Do I Relate To?
Drew Barrymore, yes. If you watch her interviews, she keeps bouncing from one topic to another & going on tangents & I definitely relate to that.
Peeta Mellark, for sure. Like me he is a calmer ENFP, but on the other hand, when I feel passionately about something I go full Piper Chapman with rallying speeches & surprise myself by how persuasive I can be.
I definitely share Michael Scott’s goofy nature, leaping before looking, often saying whatever comes to mind, out there ideas & sensitiveness.
I wish 16 personalities would add V from BTS because he is so much like me down to the micro facial expressions.
- My Type According to IdrLabs Cognitive Functions Test:
I personally prefer cognitive functions to 16 personalities because it explores typology & there is psychology to support it. There are 8 cognitive functions:
As you can see, my stack is Ne-Fi-Te-Si & would you take a look at that introverted sensing, why is it so terrible? I am amazing at organising events, but that may be more down to extroverted thinking. It’s nice to know that I’m an ENFP in both though.
- My Type According to Socionics:
Socionics is very different to MBTI hence the very different result! An INFP in Socionics is an INFJ, the introverts will have the last letter reversed: P to J & J to P. There are 4 different quadra categories in Socionics: Beta (merry, aristocratic & decisive), Alpha (judicious, merry & democratic), Gamma (decisive, serious & democratic), & Delta (judicious, serious & aristocratic).
As you can see, I am Beta Quadra ENFJ-Fe in Socionics. ENFP is 99% as likely though! Socionics ENFJ-Fe and Cognitive Functions ENFP. The only thing that is certain is that I am one idealistic NF. But the description in the picture below is very me.
“They believe that apathy is a significant cause of societal problems, and work to fight against it.”
- My Parents & Siblings Types:
My mum – could not be more Fe if she tried. Most South Asian mums are very concerned with social standing with their “what will people say?” She’s the old-fashioned ESFJ mum.
Sister – Definitely an ESxJ. I can’t decide between Fe or Te because she is very direct & no nonsense, but she also is considerate of other people’s feelings except for mine when it comes to my food. She’s a lot like Monica from Friends.
Brother – ESTP. Could not be more ESTP if he tried.
I think I might just be the only intuitive in my entire family, tbh.
- My Best Friends Type:
ESxJ. I was considering ISFJ/ISTJ, but he is far too optimistic & outgoing to be an introvert, loves routine & stable environments, so there must be tertiary Ne & aux Si at play there. He is good at encouraging people, but he also doles out tough love… & he’s the most terrible person at making logical connections (inferior Ti). Okay, so ESFJ.
I tend to make friends with SJ’s and INTx’s.
- Least Favourite Type:
ENTJ. They’re efficient & some of them are awesome, I mean check out Annalise Keating from How to Get Away with Murder. The real-life one’s just need to ensure that they work on bringing out the best in everyone. Efficiency is good, teamwork is better.
- I Want to Be Like:
ESFJ & ESTJ. They’re outgoing, sensible, together & kind. Sansa Stark is an ESFJ, so you see?
- Type Most Likely to Date:
Probably an xSxJ. That’s what I tend to do, lol.
- My Enneagram Type According to This Test:
7w8. Enneagram type 7 – the Enthusiast: pleasure seekers & planners, in search of distraction. Type 8 – the Challenger: taking charge, because they don’t want to be controlled.
For 7w8, think Scarlett O’Hara, Sirius Black and generally just riling people up, lol.
Mostly spot on… I am a multi-tasker who enjoys adventure, terrible focus, hate to be controlled & I always know when I’m being manipulated… & I will protest. But I can resist some temptations.
No pressure to do the tag as it is a long one. If anybody else would love to do it, go ahead and do it, just make sure to follow the rules and tag me so I can see your answers!
