The BTS members went over their MBTI types

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) questionnaire is used to assess different personality types. There are 16 different types possible from the assessment.

Eight of the types begin with the letter E to represent extroverted tendencies. And eight introverted types start with the letter I. The subsequent three letters correspond with more specific personality traits.

In the first session of “MBTI Lab,” Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook took the assessment to find out their MBTI type.

BTS’ MBTI types:

  • Jin: INTP
  • Suga: ISTP
  • J-Hope: INFJ
  • RM: ENFP
  • Jimin: ESTP
  • V: INFP
  • Jungkook: INTP

Of the BTS members, only RM and Jimin are considered extroverts based on their MBTI types. Both Jin and Jungkook were assigned the same MBTI type of INTP.

BTS’ Jungkook does not like texting or talking on the phone

Later in the “MBTI Lab” session, the members of BTS went through different scenarios and answered how they would personally handle them. While discussing their communication styles, Jungkook revealed he does not like texting or receiving phone calls.

“Taehyung video calls a lot,” J-Hope said.

“I like video calls,” V admitted. “I hate texts and calls, but I do like video calls.”

As the members shared how they prefer to contact people, Jungkook admitted he doesn’t like any method.

“I hate both texts and calls,” Jungkook said with a laugh.

The members of BTS then picked on Jungkook for not answering their calls and jokingly questioned why he even has a phone.
