Blogs Listed by Myers-Briggs Typology

This is a list that I have compiled of various blogs that are catagorized by the personality of the blogger using the Myers-Briggs typology test. Imagine, finding the blog of another person that shares a similar (or maybe even the same) personality type as you.

I started a Discussion thread on BlogCatolog because I was curious to see what the personality traits of bloggers are. I wanted to know if there is a dominant type of person who fills the pages of the blogosphere with anything from personal journals to information rich SEO blogs.

As the thread grew, I discovered that I wasn't the only one who was curious, so I created this list. If you already know your M-B type (i.e. ESFP,INTJ, etc.) you can scroll down the list and find other blogs in your category and click away. If you have not taken the Myers-Briggs typology test (or if you took it some time ago) there is a great, free 3-5 minute version here: Myers-Briggs typology test (Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with the test site, nor do I particularly endorse any links that may be present on their site.)

Once you take the test you can just scroll down the list and find blogs that are listed in the same category as you. If my theory is correct, you should really enjoy the content of the blogs that share your same M-B type. If you own a blog and would like to be added to the list, leave your 4-letter type in the comments sections and I will add you to the list. Then, write a post on your blog describing yourself and your experience taking the test with a link back to this post. (See the end of this post for several examples.)

The good news is that there is no wrong answer, you are they way you are and there is nothing wrong with that. Here is some information on the Myers-Briggs typology test that will help you decipher the meaning of your 4-letter personality type.

You will come up with one of the following sixteen 4-letter combinations:


Each letter respresents one of the following traits:

The first criterion, Extraversion - Introversion defines the source and direction of energy expression for a person. The extravert has a source and direction of energy expression mainly in the external world while the introvert has a source of energy mainly in the internal world.

The second criterion, S ensing - INntuition defines the method of information perception by a person. Sensing means that a person believes mainly information he or she receives directly from the external world. Intuition means that a person believes mainly information he or she receives from the internal or imaginative world.

The third criterion, Thinking - F eeling defines how the person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic. Feeling means that, as a rule, he or she makes a decision based on emotion.

The fourth criterion, Judging - Perceiving defines how a person implements the information he or she has processed. Judging means that a person organizes all his life events and acts strictly according to his plans. Perceiving means that he or she is inclined to improvise and seek alternatives.

ISFJs are characterized above all by their desire to serve others, their "need to be needed." In extreme cases, this need is so strong that standard give-and-take relationships are deeply unsatisfying to them; however, most ISFJs find more than enough with which to occupy themselves within the framework of a normal life. ISFJs are often unappreciated, at work, home, and play. Ironically, because they prove over and over that they can be relied on for their loyalty and unstinting, high-quality work, those around them often take them for granted--even take advantage of them. In the workplace, ISFJs are methodical and accurate workers, often with very good memories and unexpected analytic abilities; they are also good with people in small-group or one-on-one situations because of their patient and genuinely sympathetic approach to dealing with others. (more... )

ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes. Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are. (more... )

ESTPs are spontaneous, active folks. Like the other SPs, ESTPs get great satisfaction from acting on their impulses. Activities involving great power, speed, thrill and risk are attractive to the ESTP. Chronic stifling of these impulses makes the ESTP feel "dead inside." (more... )

"I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?"

ENTJs have a natural tendency to marshall and direct. This may be expressed with the charm and finesse of a world leader or with the insensitivity of a cult leader. The ENTJ requires little encouragement to make a plan. One ENTJ put it this way... "I make these little plans that really don't have any importance to anyone else, and then feel compelled to carry them out." While "compelled" may not describe ENTJs as a group, nevertheless the bent to plan creatively and to make those plans reality is a common theme for NJ types. (more... )

ESTJs thrive on order and continuity. Being extraverted, their focus involves organization of people, which translates into supervision. While ENTJs enjoy organizing and mobilizing people according to their own theories and tactically based agendas, ESTJs are content to enforce "the rules," often dictated by tradition or handed down from a higher authority. (more... )
(none listed yet)

Beneath the quiet exterior, INFJs hold deep convictions about the weightier matters of life. Those who are activists -- INFJs gravitate toward such a role -- are there for the cause, not for personal glory or political power. INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden. They often are found in the wake of an emergency, rescuing those who are in acute distress. INFJs may fantasize about getting revenge on those who victimize the defenseless. The concept of 'poetic justice' is appealing to the INFJ. (more... )

Like their fellow SPs, ISTPs are fundamentally Performers (note the capital 'P' :-)), but as Ts their areas of interest tend to be mechanical rather than artistic like those of ISFPs, and unlike most ESPs they do not present an impression of constant activity. On the contrary, they lie dormant, saving their energy until a project or an adventure worthy of their time comes along--and then they launch themselves at it. The apparently frenzied state that inevitably ensues is actually much more controlled than it appears--ISTPs always seem to know what they're doing when it comes to physical or mechanical obstacles--but the whole chain of events presents a confusing and paradoxical picture to an outsider. (more... )

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know. (more... )

ISTJs are often called inspectors. They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their area of interest and/or responsibility. They are noted for devotion to duty. Punctuality is a watchword of the ISTJ. The secretary, clerk, or business(wo)man by whom others set their clocks is likely to be an ISTJ. As do other Introverted Thinkers, ISTJs often give the initial impression of being aloof and perhaps somewhat cold. Effusive expression of emotional warmth is not something that ISTJs do without considerable energy loss. (more... )


ENFPs are both "idea"-people and "people"-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by other people, on bo th an individual and a humanitarian level. They are interested in new ideas on principle, but ultimately discard most of them for one reason or another. (more... )

"Where's the party?" ESFPs love people, excitement, telling stories and having fun. The spontaneous, impulsive nature of this type is almost always entertaining. And ESFPs love to entertain -- on stage, at work, and/or at home. Social gatherings are an energy boost to these "people" people. SPs sometimes think and talk in more of a spider-web approach. Several of my ESFP friends jump from thought to thought in mid-sentence, touching here or there in a manner that's almost incoherent to the listener, but will eventually cover the waterfront by skipping on impulse from one piece of information to another. It's really quite fascinating. New! ESFPs are attracted to new ideas, new fashions, new gadgets, new ______. Perhaps it's the newness of life that attracts ESFPs to elementary education, especially to preschool and kindergarten. (more... )

"Clever" is the word that perhaps describes ENTPs best. The professor who juggles half a dozen ideas for research papers and grant proposals in his mind while giving a highly entertaining lecture on an abstruse subject is a classic example of the type. So is the stand-up comedian whose lampoons are not only funny, but incisively accurate. ENTPs are usually verbally as well as cerebrally quick, and generally love to argue--both for its own sake, and to show off their often-impressive skills. They tend to have a perverse sense of humor as well, and enjoy playing devil's advocate. They sometimes confuse, even inadvertently hurt, those who don't understand or accept the concept of argument as a sport. (more... )


Guardians of birthdays, holidays and celebrations, ESFJs are generous entertainers. They enjoy and joyfully observe traditions and are liberal in giving, especially where custom prescribes. All else being equal, ESFJs enjoy being in charge. They see problems clearly and delegate easily, work hard and play with zest. ESFJs, as do most SJs, bear strong allegiance to rights of seniority. They willingly provide service (which embodies life's meaning) and expect the same from others. (more... )
INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses. It's as though they live at the edge of a looking-glass world where mundane objects come to life, where flora and fauna take on near-human qualities. INFP children often exhibit this in a 'Calvin and Hobbes' fashion, switching from reality to fantasy and back again. With few exceptions, it is the NF child who readily develops imaginary playmates (as with Anne of Green Gables's "bookcase girlfriend"--her own reflection) and whose stuffed animals come to life like the Velveteen Rabbit and the Skin Horse: (more... )


ISFPs are the first to hear the different drummer. Many eagerly plunge into new fashions, avant garde experiences, 'hip' trends--some even setting the trends. More in touch with the reality of their senses than their INFP counterparts, ISFPs live in the here and now. Their impulses yearn to be free, and are often loosed when others least expect it. The ISFP who continually represses these impulses feels 'dead inside' and may eventually cut and run. (One ISFP friend has become nonambulatory within the past few years. He will still, on impulse, leave home in the middle of the night and go to Las Vegas or wherever, regardless of the difficulties of his physical condition.) (more... )

INTPs are pensive, analytical folks. They may venture so deeply into thought as to seem detached, and often actually are oblivious to the world around them. Precise about their descriptions, INTPs will often correct others (or be sorely tempted to) if the shade of meaning is a bit off. While annoying to the less concise, this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists. INTPs are relatively easy-going and amenable to almost anything until their principles are violated, about which they may become outspoken and inflexible. They prefer to return, however, to a reserved albeit benign ambiance, not wishing to make spectacles of themselves. (more... )

  1. Pretty interesting..and thanks for posting my blog..

  2. Thanks, that was fun. I have taken that years ago, but I have forgotten wheat the result was. I have to wonder if it has changed over the years. I am a INFJ by the way.

  3. Thanks for the post and link! The Myers-Briggs tool is amazingly accurate; I've been into it for years and it never ceases to amaze me.

  4. @dani,searchingwithin and globalgirl: Thank you for the comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed the post.

    @searchingwithin: I have added you under INFJ. Thanks for letting me know.

  5. Hi OMB! Thanks for sharing this personality assessment thingy... it's great.

  6. Thanks. I'm an ENFJ, and not surprisingly, you have listed those as some of my favorite must-read blogs.

  7. @da old man: You are welcome. No, it's not a surprise at all. It's quite amazing to see how acurate the test is. Thanks for the comment. You have been added to the ENFJ list.

  8. Hey, I am a ISTJ. I'm not sure if that is good or bad but you got my attention.


  9. @donald: The good thing, is that there are no wrong or right answers to this. It's just a great way of finding out more about each other and then possibly connecting with other bloggers that have our same personalities. People tend to like people that are like themselves.

    Thanks for leaving a comment. I have added you to the list.

  10. I'm INFJ.

    INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden. They often are found in the wake of an emergency, rescuing those who are in acute distress. INFJs may fantasize about getting revenge on those who victimize the defenseless. The concept of 'poetic justice' is appealing to the INFJ.

    Bit of good and bad there :-)

  11. @jim: I see good and bad in my profile as well. That is what makes us human. The INFJ's are a big group in the blogosphere. That or else, they really like taking the M-B test more than the others... it's hard to tell at this point. lol. I have added you to the list. Thanks for commentinng!

  12. ooh, what a fascinating idea. In my own perusal of blogs, I have found a lot of INFJ bloggers, which is interesting because it's the most rare personality type!

    I took the test a year ago and was an ISFJ. I had been writing on wordpress.

    Just this past winter I took the test again and got INFP. It's interesting how personalities may change or evolve. But I have a newblog now too,

  13. @shannon: I left a message for you on your blog under the post about your awesome dream.

    Just get me your BlogCatalog profile name and I'll add you to the list. Great blogspot blog by the way!

  14. Thanks for leading me to your test here. It is amazing the insight to be gathered about oneself and others from this test.

    Mark - INTJ

  15. Hi, I got this tag from Earthlingorgeous and here's my result:) INFJ ...

    Thanks for sharing! Happy Memorial Day!

  16. I didn't know you were going to post this on your blog. Thank you for the representation & link! It must've taken you a while to compile it all. Keep up the good work!

  17. @Mark - You are welcome. I added you to growing list of INTJ's. Thanks for coming by!

    @Salamat - Happy Memorial Day to you too! I have also added you to the list.

  18. ESFJ

    Guardians of birthdays, holidays and celebrations, ESFJs are generous entertainers. They enjoy and joyfully observe traditions and are liberal in giving, especially where custom prescribes. All else being equal, ESFJs enjoy being in charge. They see problems clearly and delegate easily, work hard and play with zest. ESFJs, as do most SJs, bear strong allegiance to rights of seniority. They willingly provide service (which embodies life's meaning) and expect the same from others.

  19. @lana: You are welcome! Yes, it did take a while and the spacing is still a little off in places. I don't know how to fix it, but I guess it works as people seem to really be enjoying it. Thank you for passing along your results.

    @g8rbryan: Thanks for commenting. It's it really just amazing how accurate this test is. I have added you to the list!

  20. ESFP

    Wow good thing I saved that. LOL I almost forgot to add it
    Interesting post and outcome of the quizz.

    Guess there aren't too many of us out there. At least not yet anyway.

    PS my new blog is here

    old blog is here

  21. Since you are the only one listed under ESFP I guess I had better subscribe and get it delivered to my email LOL

  22. @wendy: Yea! Another ESFP... I was wondering if there were any others out there. Welcome to the list! And welcome to my favorite category. :) Actually, I like them all and I am really learning alot from this experiment.

  23. Great list and interesting discoveries... I have some reading to do

  24. Accurate about some aspects, astonishingly accurate about my career!

    Has posted a link to your blog here

  25. Dude - excellent work here man!.. looking forward to sharing a same blogspace with you as an ESFP.

  28. @Outside My Brain,
    I hope I followed things right. I'm an INFP. And posted here:

  29. That was interesting, apparently I am an ENFP which I have to admit was pretty accurate. Will write a follow up post at
    tomorrow (it's 12.30 now & I'm off to bed :-)

  30. @charmainezoe: Welcome! You are now the third ENFP on the list. I look forward to reading your follow-up post. Thanks for coming by.

  31. Hey, Brian.
    Love the idea here. I'm proud to say I'm an ENFJ.

  32. THanks for listing my blog. I always wondered about the Myers Briggs test. It sure got me right.


  33. @Dr. Rob: Glad you like the idea. You have been added to the list, and for those that don't know, Rob's Megaphone is one hillarious blog. Check it out here:

  34. @Ned: You're welcome! It really is amazing. Almost everyone says that it gets them right on.

  35. I was tagged for this and found it very interesting, especially since I'd done it before years ago. I came out almost the same this time, but not quite. I'm an ISFJ. :)

  36. Thanks for posting this. I am amazed at how the interpretations suit me. The entire ananlysis almost perfectly described me as an ENTP type.

  37. @deb-mom of 3 girls: Thanks for coming by. I have added you to the list. I look forward to reading your post about it.

    @praning5254: I figured that you would enjoy this. If you have been by praning's website, he has a great personality profile based on your sleeping positions. Check it out here:

  38. Ok so I am INTJ...i think that fits me. Thanks for the test! Very cool!

  39. I'm INTJ.
    "INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know"
    That sounds like me and my blog lol.

  40. Thanks for linking me!

    That test is spot on, I definitely come across as self confident and arrogant but in reality I am just a little ole' INTJ.

    Well, or a sociopathic narcissist! :p

  41. Hi, I am an INFP & the description fits me!

    This was fun, great idea you had!

  42. @jollygreendad: You're welcome and you have been added to the list!

    @thea: Welcome to my blog. That's funny, the quote you pulled off of it. I have listed you as well. Thanks for coming by.

    @theoffendedblogger: You're welcome. Yes, it's hard to know for sure isn't it? lol j/k. I appreciate your comments.

    @lordiwanttobewhole: I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to reading your post relating your experience to your readers.

  43. lol - that was fun - great post!

    Too true. :)

    Here's my post on it:

    There's Something Rotten in Denmark

  47. @dette,syn,thatcrazymom & tina:

    Thanks so much for stopping by. I have added your blogs to the list. I enjoyed reading your posts. Take care.

  48. Your Type is:

    Great idea to list blogs according to this test.

  49. @pc-week: Thank you. You're blog, with it's link, has been added to the list under INTP.

    Thank you for posting your article with a link back here to this post.

  50. Fantastic idea for a post! Thanks for inviting me. I'm looking forward to trawling the INTJ blogs.

    I see you're an entrepreneur and into marketing. Based on how great this idea for your blog is, I think you and my husband need to get together.He's an ESFP in sales and marketing too. :-)

  51. Forgot this -

    Here's my link:


  52. @rosslyn: Thanks for stopping by. I have added you to growing list of INTJ's clearly the largest category of bloggers, so far, followed closely by the INFJ's.

    It makes sense that blogging would attract more I's than E's, but we are also noticing that INTJ's & INFJ's are very similar in their personalities execpt the INFJ's operate more by their feelings then their logical counterparts.

    At this point, I can't say that the evicence is conclusive, nor will I ever, due to the fact that I'm sure some personality types, who actually enjoy blogging, hate taking personality tests... so that could skew the numbers, among a myriad of other variables, but none-the-less, this is so much fun to see how it's turning out.

    Thanks again, and I look forward to meeting your husband.

  53. Thanks for linking to us! Guilty as charged...another INTJ blogger! :)

  54. I've got myself pegged as an ENTJ, which I'm quite pleased about.

    Your results in this post are quite interesting, I would have thought by the very nature of blogging - i.e. communicating with others, more would be in the "E" category rather than introverts. Shows what I know!

  55. Nice Post, OMB. I took the quiz and I am INTJ, which means I haven't changed much in the last 15 years or so! My blog, Opinion Streams, is at

    Check out my BC profile as well:


  56. @flipping heck: You have been added to the list. Thanks for stopping by.

    I was thinking the same thing when I started this, but it seems that either the extroverts are just out having too much fun to take the time to do the 4-minute test.

    Or, this is a medium that attracts introverts due the the fact that they can communicate and connect with people, yet they don't have to physcially talk or be around people, which is what drains them.

    @Blogmaster: You have been added to the list. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you recieve some traffic from my blog. Have a great day.

  57. It is amazingly accurate!lol

    By the way, I'm an ITSJ :D

  58. This is a great idea!

    I'm an INTJ! Here's the link to my blog post.

  59. This is a great list!!!

    I write a blog about the MBTI and it's applications.

    I'd love if you could link to the site! Thank you!

  60. This is such an awesome idea! ;-)

    I am an ENTP and I would love to be added to this list.

    Seems the N's are over represented in this sampling, but if you know Myers-Briggs, that's almost to be expected. ;-)


  61. @hitsu: Yes, it is very accurate. Amazing! I have added your blog.

    @osok521: Thank you. I have added your blog.

    @breanne: I added your site. Great information there about the MBTI. Thanks for stopping by.

    @jeremy day: Thanks for the compliment. I'm glad you enjoyed it. You have been added.

  62. Interesting. I enjoyed it.

  63. @ibne adam: Thanks for coming by. Be sure to come back often as more blogs are added. Your blog has been added to the list.

  64. Hi, this is interesting!
    I did the test and apparently I am a ENFJ. Well, I can't say it's exactly me but close.

  65. excellent...

    thanks for adding me, i'm an INFP..=D

  66. Hi Brian
    Guessed you must have forgotten about me. I seemed to be missing from your list.

    In case, you want to double-confirm my post,

  67. If you are into ENFP stuff then you may like


  69. This is an awesome post! I'm an INTJ and always curious about the types of various bloggers. I just learned about Typealyzer the other day, but funny enough it needs some tweaking as it didn't even correctly identify my page that is actually about INTJ!

    Anyway, I've linked to my site, specifically my own INTJ page. My site isn't a blog, per se, but I do have a blog section.

    Feel free to add my site to your INTJ section if you wish. I love meeting others who find me through that.
