What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Is Like As A Friend


ENFP: The excitable yet surprisingly insightful friend who subtly gives you a pep talk every time you hang out and leaves you feeling like you could be the next President.

ESFJ: The friend who lets you live at their house for two weeks after you break up with your significant other so they can make sure you’re eating, sleeping and going to work like a functioning human being.

ENTJ: The successful and slightly bossy friend who is constantly challenging you to reach your full potential – because they see it in you, even when you don’t see it in yourself.

ISTJ: The super-organized friend who always shows up fifteen minutes early for your hangouts and whom you’d pretty much trust with your life.

ENFJ: The wise mother hen who’s there come hell or high water but isn’t afraid to give you tough love if ever and whenever you need it.

ISFJ: The undyingly loyal friend who reminds you of your grandmother but in a good way. As in, they regularly bake you cookies and are always down for a relaxing night in.

INFP: The deep, introspective friend who will listen to you talk for fifteen straight hours without interruption. Of course, when they do offer advice it’s incredibly on point and you have the eerie feeling that they’ve somehow channeled your deepest feelings and thoughts.

ENTP: The chaotic friend who regularly pops into your life, asks you to join them on a crazy new project or adventure and then completely disappears for 6-12 months at a time.

INTP: The friend who NEVER initiates hanging out but is paradoxically almost always down to chill – as long as you’re down to talk science or conspiracy theories with them.

INFJ: The friend you have to plan a week ahead to see (in order to give them time to mentally prepare for the hangout) but then always end up spending ten plus hours discussing the nature of life, the Universe and everything with.

ISFP: The cool, probably hipster friend who goes to a lot of music festivals and likes everything exactly 6 months before it becomes popular.

INTJ: Your friend who’s in MENSA and sometimes rubs it in your face… but also has a downright fascinating mind so you’re okay with it.

ESFP: The friend who is down for pretty much anything, pretty much anytime and is more fun than basically everyone else you know combined.

ISTP: The chill friend who goes along with anything and always somehow knows exactly what’s wrong with your computer and/or car.

ESTP: The athletic, adventurous friend who always seems to be off doing something dangerous or crazy whenever you want to hang out with them.

ESTJ: That friend who gives you incessant lectures about how you need to get your life together (and exactly how to do so) but you know it’s because they care… or at least you’re pretty sure they do. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
