Welcome back to another week of MBTI's, also known as the Myers-Briggs Test Indicator, which is a method to determine your personality! This test has been extremely popular amongst South Koreans, and it has become a conversation starter for many people. The popularity is similar to horoscopes in the U.S, and over the course of a few weeks, we've checked out personalities such as ISFP(Adventurer), INFP(Mediator), and ENFJ(protagonist).
Today, we will be taking a deeper look at the ESTP (Extroverted, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving) personality, also nicknamed the "entrepreneur."
An ESTP personality is...
Extroverted (vs. Introverted)
Sensing (vs. Intuitive/Observant)
Thinking (vs. Feeling)
Perceiving (vs. Judging)
According to MBTIonline.com, ESTP personalities are "logical problem solvers and fast thinkers. Thisoutgoing, energetic personality type loves using common sense to find smarter ways of doing things, and they are the definition of inventive and resourceful. ESTPs are natural risk-takers, and while they are dedicated to whatever they’re working on, they don’t like to be micro-managed or told what to do."
TMI: Before we take a look any further, former president Donald J. Trump is an ESTP personality!
And now, let's take a look at common characteristic traits by an ordinary Korean ESTP!
- Very stubborn
- Lives "in-the-moment" and is very unplanned
- Not very good at finishing his or her own work
- Loves attention
- Is a fan of memes
- Tries hard to achieve goals
- Gets sick and tired of things easily

Now it's time to take a look and see which personalities get along with ESTPs and which personalities don't.
Red - THE WORST COMBINATION
Yellow - Not the worst, but not preferred either
Lime - Gets along half the time; does not get along half the time
Green - Has potential in becoming a very good friendship
Blue - MEANT TO BE BFF's
Fortunately, ESTPs look like they get along with a good majority of the people. Some personalities they should avoid are INFP, ENFP, INFJ, and ENFJ. Their best friends would be ISFP or ISTJ, and everyone else would be somewhat OK as long as they don't cause too much trouble.
Now, let's take a look and see which celebrities obtain an INFP personality!
