Want to know the BTS members’ MBTI? Or maybe you don’t even know what that means. “MBTI” is short for “Myers-Briggs Type Indicator,” and it’s all the rage these days. People worldwide have been taking MBTI tests to find out which of the 16 personality types they are. Some even find the results to be scarily accurate in describing their traits.
The K-pop group BTS has also jumped on the MBTI train. Read on to find out BTS MBTI personality types for all seven members — Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.
Jin and Suga’s MBTI personality type: INTP
According to Koreaboo, Jin and Suga share the same personality type: INTP. The abbreviation stands for “introverted, intuitive, thinking, and prospecting.” This MBTI personality type is rare, representing less than 5% of the world’s population.
INTPs are introverted, which means they get energy from being alone. They can also be noticeably quiet when in a large group, which is something Suga fans can probably attest to about the BTS rapper.
Despite their quietness, INTPs often have plenty going on in their head. They can look outside the box for new ideas and solutions to problems. INTPs can also be logical and enjoy ideas that challenge their thinking.
J-Hope’s MBTI personality type: ESFJ
ESFJ people, like J-Hope, are known to be outgoing. “ESFJ” is an acronym for “extraverted, observant, feeling, and judging.” They love social events and get their energy from connecting with others. So it’s no surprise ESFJs can be favored with peers — after all, J-Hope was known to be popular in high school.
ESFJs are also caring and enjoy looking after their loved ones. They value loyalty and will go above and beyond for people close to them.
RM and V’s MBTI personality type: ENFP
RM and V both reported they’re ENFP, or “extraverted, intuitive, feeling, and prospecting.” ENFPs thrive around others, and they’re known as excellent communicators. That’s because they’re observant of their surroundings and connect different ideas together well. RM and V seem to really fit that description — RM is the group’s leader, who often speaks for the band during interviews, while V is an approachable person who can make friends with anybody.
Additionally, ENFPs are curious people with active imaginations. They can think outside the box and come up with ideas other people haven’t considered.
However, in 2021, V shared that his MBTI type changed to INFP, so he might be more introverted than he appears.
Jimin’s MBTI personality type: ENFJ
Jimin, an ENFJ — or “extraverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging” — is similar to RM and V. ENFJs and ENFPs are people-centric, creative types who can help bring different personalities together.
However, ENFJs like Jimin tend to be less spontaneous than ENFPs like RM and V. ENFJs value planning and setting goals, and they are quite reliable. Some have also said that ENFJs are more emotional and in tune with others’ feelings than ENFPs.
Jungkook’s MBTI personality type: ISFP and INTP
The youngest member of BTS, Jungkook, fits into a few MBTI personality types. In 2017, he was an INFP. Then, in 2020, he was an ISFP (“introverted, observant, feeling, and prospecting”). However, his most recent update, in December 2021, shows he’s half-ISFP and half-INTP.
Both types are known to be quiet and easygoing. However, there are some differences between ISFPs and INTPs. The former tend to be detail-oriented and follow values when making decisions. Meanwhile, the latter types process the world with a big-picture focus and rely on objective reasoning more than values.
Jungkook’s personality seems to be quite fluid, and he exhibits different traits depending upon the situation. Perhaps that explains why he is a “Golden Maknae” who is good at everything.
