MBTI: Taking a Look at ISFJ Personalities & Celebrities

Welcome back to another week of our MBTI exploration! Previously, we have discussed ESTP, ENFJ, and INFP personalities. MBTI has been extremely hot recently in South Korea, and the popular variety show "How Do You Play" also recently aired an MBTI special episode -- that's how hot it is in the country.

The Myers-Brigg Test Indicator is a fun way to find out your personality and see who you're compatible with. South Korea did a phenomenal job at having their own little categorization and summaries of each personality that caters to a typical Korean person. Today, we will be taking a deeper look at the ISFJ personality (Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging), who is also known as the defender.

An ISFJ personality is...

Introverted (vs. Extraverted)

Sensing (vs. Intuitive/Observant)

Feeling (vs. Thinking)

Judging (vs. Perceiving)

According to MBTIOnline.com, ISFJ personalities are "guides by introverted sensing, which helps them to understand what people need and know exactly how to care for them. These types of people are responsible and practical, and they place a great deal of value on common sense. ISFJ enjoys helping others and leaving things better than they found them."

A little pause here -- check out Park Moonchi's song on MBTI that was released back in 2020!

And now, let's take a look at the common characteristic traits of an ordinary Korean ISFJ!

  • Problem Solver
  • Too-Much Thinker
  • Plans Chronologially
  • Family-Oriented
  • Perfectionist 
  • Passionate and Loyal
  • Overly considerate
  • Good memory
  • Generous
  • Not good at expressing emotions
  • Self-Defensive
  • Very Consistent
  • Unique Hobbies 
  • Wants to know everything
  • Good explainer 
  • Enjoys working alone
  • Detail-oriented
  • Very discrete
  • Jokes seriously
  • Idealist
  • Extremely Loyal
  • Sensitive
  • Nags a lot
  • Very responsible

Now it's time to take a look and see which personalities get along with INFJs and which personalities don't.

Color Key


Yellow - Not the worst, but not preferred either

Lime - Gets along half the time; does not get along half the time

Green - Has the potential in becoming an excellent friendship


Looking at the big picture, it looks like that ISFJ's have a little bit of everything on the color key. They would be best friends with an ESFP & ESTP, while they should avoid INFP, ENFP, INFJ & ENTJ at all costs. They would also make pretty good friends with other fellow ISFJ's, as well as ESFJ, ISTJ, and ESTJ. 

Now, let's take a look and see which celebrities obtain an ISFJ personality!

Narsha (Brown Eyed Girls)

Kim Kyung Ho

Dong Hyun (Golden Child)

Dahyun (Rocket Punch)

Dahyun (TWICE)

Ryu Su Jeong (Lovelyz)

Moon Chaewon

Yubin (Oh My Girl)

Sohee (Rocket Punch)

Suyun (Rocket Punch)


Shinji (Koyote)


Daesung (BIG BANG)

Jungyeon (TWICE)

Jung Chae Yeon (DIA)

Junghwa (EXID)

Ji Soo Yeon (Weki Meki)

Taeyeon is INFJ she's said it so many times lol She thought she was ISFJ but she isn't. That's why the joke for her song is her mbti is INvu instead of INFJ... 🤩😅🤣👍
