The MBTI Types and What They’ve Taught Me
(Based off of people that are actually in my life)(Yes I do actually know someone of each type)(I’m friends with a lot of people)
ESFJ: A life lived for someone else is no life at all. Live for yourself.
ESTJ: You’re not always going to be right. You’re not always going to be able to have the best view, or the best ideas. But recognizing that you’re wrong, apologizing, and learning from that experience will not only put you in the right, but make it so that it happens less in the future.
ENFJ: It’s only embarrassing if you make it. Laugh it off.
ENTJ: Even the smartest people sometimes say stupid things, or take the wrong side. Even you. Don’t let it phase you, just be willing to do better.
ISFJ: No matter how much better you think someone is than you, there’s always a way to get to their level. That method is known as willpower.
ISTJ: No matter how many obstacles lie in your way, be it disapproval, disadvantage, or disappointment, ultimately, your only true obstacle is your own self-perception.
INFJ: Sometimes the best friends you’ll ever make are the ones you rarely see. And that’s okay–just because someone is busy doesn’t mean they love you any less.
INTJ: To say that you’re bored with your life is one of the greatest crimes you can commit. The world is full to the brim with things to do, it’s your own fault if you refuse to engage in any of them.
ESFP: You’ll never get any better if you hide your talent away. Put it on display, even if you’re scared, and the confidence will come with time.
ESTP: Don’t ever apologize for yourself. For your actions, sure. But your thoughts, your personality, your self-expression, your emotions? They’re valid. They’re not something you should apologize for.
ENFP: There’s nothing wrong with adhering to traditional societal norms, and letting yourself take on some of them doesn’t mean that they become your entire personality.
ENTP: Take responsibility for yourself and your actions before anything else. Your problems aren’t going to go away on their own.
ISFP: There’s always going to be someone with a worse problem, a worse past, etc. That doesn’t make your own struggles any worse, and it’s okay to ask for help with the ‘small’ things.
ISTP: You don’t have to fit a stereotype. No matter how much you feel like you have to fit a certain image to do the things you love. Embrace your own image.
INFP: You can idealize your future self all you’d like, but you’re never going to get there until you start to change the present.
INTP: Nothing you do is ever going to be enough to please everybody. Do what you can, hope for the best, and let the consequences toughen your skin.
