Though some celebrities are famous for adopting the personality of any character on screen, they all exhibit typical personality traits in real life. The Meyers Briggs personality spectrum categorizes the main personalities found in human society. Here is a list of celebrities whose real personalities fit seven key categories.

 

INFP: Dreamer

 

John Lennon lived a meaningful life full of heart and positivity.

 

INTJ famous people: Strategist

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a natural leader who has spent his life scanning for opportunity.

 

ISTJ: Examiner

 

Sean Connery is family and community oriented with an extreme sense of loyalty, justice, and propriety.

 

ISFJ: Defender

 

Mother Theresa was a quiet collector of information about people, without the need to show it.

 

INFJ: Confidant

 

Daniel Day Lewis is a rare 1% type who is intuitive, gentle, and highly complex cognitively.

 

INFP: Advocate

 

Walt Disney was a innovator who was warm and always looked for the potential in things.  One of the most prominent examples of celebrity INFPs.

 

INTP: Engineer

 

Albert Einstein was a premier example of someone who was known for tackling problems first in his own mind.

 

The world of personality type analysis is very interesting because it highlights how far certain famous people wander from their true types in order to create a character. Some famous people do not wander far at all. Angelina Jolie for example, has made a career playing strong female characters in many movies with Angelina Jolie. In real life she is also outgoing, straightforward, and a go-getter. She is a solid ESTP: Persuader.

 

Jennifer Lopez on the other hand, is vastly different on screen and on stage, than in her personal life. Most people would assume she is an outgoing ESFP: Entertainer, but through analysis it is determined she is really an ISFJ: Defender. She is rather mysterious with a rich inner world. She might be surprised that Meyers Briggs compares her to George W. Bush and Christopher Walken. Then again, it’s about the true personality, not the assumed image.
