MONSTA X members personality psychoanalysis (Ep 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 )

Shownu
Shownu is an authority-type behind the king. People with this kind of personality doesn’t really like to go forward, it is possible for them to feel uncomfortable. He has a lot of stress because he is under pressure that he is the leader. He tries to do well in everything. The good thing is, however, that despite his high levels of stress, he has a low-level of depression. He is good at self-management. He is someone with great responsibility, he is very much like a father-figure. Fathers are not fathers because they are strong (they can be weak). Even if he doesn’t speak much, members should not think “He knows it all” or “He wants to talk”, but ask him first.
Minhyuk
He’s the most outgoing person. He’s an eloquent speaker, a good MC like a leader. He always checks other reactions without realising (after he says something) to check whether it is enough. It is because he’s looking at it not from one angle but the variety of the situation. Minhyuk says he gets stressed if the reaction is not good as expected. The psychotherapist replies there is no weakness until you compare yourself to others. Therefore Minhyuk’s way of thinking is a strength.
Kihyun
Kihyun is a type of member who goes well with any other member. He is a social type. He socialises with people with his body and emotions. He is social with his actions; he has natural skinship. He is also likely to lose his temper. But even if he loses temper, it doesn’t last long. That’s why he is good at cooperating with others. If he gets married, his wife will be happy (because he likes cleaning/taking care). It is okay for Kihyun to keep within bounds (members were complaining he is nitpicky with chores) but he should know the limit. He doesn’t do these tasks to boast, or make himself look good; it is for the sake of Monsta X as a team. It creates synergy in the team, his actions are out of good heart. He wouldn’t do it if he didn’t care about his members (but he does).
Hyungwon
He is a Joan of Arc type who is diligent in everything. He is a good role model; he has spirit. He has guts (Kihyun questions the psychoanalysis). He was the main in Ep.2 (Role as first daughter-in-law). He did not like the role at first, however worked hard regardless and took everything on as his role was. That explains his guts that he had. During Ep.5 daycare center, he comforted and took care of the toddler who was shy of strangers. He did the best he could and pulled through.
Jooheon
Jooheon has a spark type personality. When a spark type and rapper comes together, it’s creates perfect synergy. Since he has so much energy; whatever he does with the members will create more energy; like an igniting equipment. He has charming eyes. During Ep.2-3, his role as a charming dog made him work hard to spice up the atmosphere with comedy and enjoyment. However, such a personality tends to hold grudges.
I.M
I.M looks cute, and has a baby face. (Members disagree, the psychotherapist is talking about his innocent personality). Even though he is the youngest, he’s the most flexible, he’s adapts to change. He is curious. With that, he is ambitious and also wants to achieve many things. He was the mafia during Ep.1, it was exciting for him. His top priority is pleasure. I.M asked about his parents being opposite types (Acting vs. Thinking type) and which he takes after. The psychotherapist replies it’s not important who you take after, but to know that you take after both.
Wonho
Wonho has a Joan of Arc personality. He is emotional and feminine, but with brilliant intellect. These types are often designers (Wonho has good sense of fashion, redoes his own leather jackets & designed Clan Tour jackets). During Ep.5, Wonho was sensitive to kids (played at their level). He has interest in volunteer work (currently does so) to stabilise his mentality; a therapy effect called the Mother Teresa effect. This effect helps to boost self esteem. So Wonho cared for the kids in a way that he wanted to be cared for by others. He also wants a hug from others. The psychotherapist sensed that he was lonely and lost his self-esteeem. Wonho possibly would have seen himself in the kids, aswell (Wonho starts tearing up). Idols want to take care of themselves but they are stressed and tired. If members comfort each other with words and support each other, it will help relieve stress and bring Monsta X together as a whole.

We are here to make a better world. No amount of rationalization or blaming can preempt the moment of choice each of us brings to our situation here on this planet. The lesson of the ‘60s is that people who cared enough to do right could change history. We didn’t end racism but we ended legal segregation. We ended the idea that you could send half-a-million soldiers around the world to fight a war that people do not support. We ended the idea that women are second-class citizens. We made the environment an issue that couldn’t be avoided. The big battles that we won cannot be reversed. We were young, we were self-righteous, reckless, hypocritical, brave, silly, headstrong and scared half to death.

And we were right. I regret nothing.

- Abbie Hoffman, Vanderbilt University on April 1989.

You could see it. We connected. We practically Drifted right there, with everyone watching. It was even tighter in some ways than he and Yancy had been, because with Yancy, he’d expected to know what his partner was going to do. With Mako, there were no expectations. He was completely in the moment, riding the present, feeling each second of time…

She was his co-pilot. Anyone could see that.
