Which MBTI Personality Type Makes the Most Money

In recent years, the MBTI, which stands for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, has become extremely popular among young people in South Korea. Testament to its popularity is how apparel brands have released MBTI-related products pandering to the fad that is catering to millennial and Gen-Z Koreans who took the world-famous personality measurement test.


The MBTI sensation, not only in Korea but in a manifold of other countries as well, is credited to the idea of bestowing the young generation a sense of belongingness — that in knowing their personality type through a reliable personality measurement tool, they will have a better understanding of who they are, and will find likeminded people in the process.


This free personality test that is accessible online was created by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, Katharine's daughter, in 1943. The personality theory was conceived and inspired by then Isabel Myers' future husband, Clarence. Katharine was intrigued by how the latter sees the world from a beautifully unique perspective. It was then that the 16 personality types were brought to life, and the rest is history.


Have you ever wondered which MBTI type makes the most money, and what the personality types of certain famous celebrities, politicians, and billionaires are? In this article, we would tackle these things alongside other human behavior must-knows about this widely popular educational and psychological measurement tool.

How are personality types classified?


While there are a total of sixteen (16) different MBTI types for personality assessment and understanding individual differences, personality psychologists Myers and Briggs divided the personality tests into four categories for easier classification. They are as follows.


Extraversion (E) and Introversion (I)

First introduced in the early 1900s through Carl Jung's theory of psychological types, introversion and extraversion are the classic way to distinguish personalities. The former is a trait associated with generally reserved people who find peace and comfort when alone, while the latter is for the outgoing, talkative, sociable, and who enjoy interacting with other people.


Sensing (S) and Intuition (N)

Sensing is for people who cast their judgment and decisions based on facts and hands-on experience, while intuition relies heavily on imagination and theories. Intuitive people enjoy thinking, while sensing people are straightforward and pay more attention to details.


Thinking (T) and Feeling (F)

This classification gives a dichotomy between the heart and mind as a way to determine a person's personality type. Thinking people base their decisions on data and logic laid out to them, while the "feeling" ones are most likely to give empathy toward people rather than relying solely on logic and sound reasoning during a given situation.


Judging (J) and Perceiving (P)

This final classification deals with how people want to get things done. "Judgers" tend to be organized, firm, and unyielding when getting things decided on, while "Perceivers" prefer things to be done with spontaneity. Hence, they are the "happy-go-lucky" and "come what may" types of people.


The 16 MBTI Personality Types


  1. ISTJ (The Inspector): Introverted, sensing, thinking, and judging. This psychological type of people is restrained but practical, using their minds when making decisions and being firm with it after all is said and done.

  2. ISTP (The Crafter): Introverted, sensing, thinking, and perceiving. People under this classification prefer to work independently and enjoy venturing into new experiences that provide first-hand learning.

  3. ISFJ (The Protector): Introverted, sensing, feeling, and judging. "Protectors" are kind-hearted, and would not hesitate to protect the people who mean a lot to them.

  4. ISFP (The Artist): Introverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving. "Artists" are creative, smart, and reserved. They are spontaneous and easy-going.

  5. INFJ (The Advocate): Introverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging. Under the introversion spectrum, advocates are considered one of the rarest MBTI types. They are analytical, compassionate, creative, organized, and prefer to be alone more.

  6. INFP (The Mediator): Introverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving. Mediators are idealists who dream to have a better world and place for people suffering from injustices.

  7. INTJ (The Architect): introverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging. People under this tag are problem solvers who tend to be perfectionists and are not so good at showing and revealing their emotions.

  8. INTP (The Thinker): introverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. "Thinkers," well, spend a lot of time thinking an inexhaustible train of thoughts. They tend to be quiet yet logical when it comes to analyzing things and making decisions.

  9. ESTP (The Persuader): Extraverted, sensing, thinking, and perceiving. Persuaders have a good sense of humor which they use to socialize and gain a ton of friends and acquaintances. They also relish being the center of attention.

  10. ESTJ (The Director): Extraverted, sensing, thinking, and judging. When getting things done, they are traditional, in that they are strict with rule compliance and they take charge with a methodical way of accomplishing projects.

  11. ESFP (The Performer): Extraverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving. They are natural entertainers who could charm crowds with their vivacity. Once put in the spotlight, they will take ownership of the stage, so to speak.

  12. ESFJ (The Caregiver): Extraverted, sensing, feeling, and judging. "Caregivers" love dealing with people and are hence soft-hearted. They are outgoing and are anchored with a belief system that people are inherently good.

  13. ENFP (The Champion): Extraverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving. "Champions" have an impressively artistic side and are extremely passionate about their ambitions and endeavors in life. They are good communicators with a formidable command of language.

  14. ENFJ (The Giver): Extraverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging. Helping others and feeling a great sense of fulfillment with it is what "givers" take pride in. They are also good to be friends with as they are understanding, compassionate, and sensitive.

  15. ENTP (The Debater): Extraverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. They take the initiative in finding solutions to intellectually challenging problems. They are fond of ideas and going about how to execute them in a given situation. They also have an influencing power once they speak to people.

  16. ENTJ (The Commander): Extraverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging. Finally, ENTJ personalities are highly competitive and have long-term goals set for themselves. ENTJ people have a strong chance to succeed in life with their analytical thinking skills and goal-orientedness.

Which MBTI Type Tends to Make the Most Money?

There are, in total, 16 personality types in the MBTI instrument, yet the ENTJs, so-called the Commanders, are the sort of people who are likely to succeed in their lucrative career endeavors. They are good with people, good with handling a business, and proficient when dealing with finances.


Entrepreneurs and billionaires who fall into this personality spectrum are Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, Apple founder Steve Jobs, and world-renowned investor Warren Buffet. For politicians, it's the likes of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and former US President Franklin Roosevelt.


For actors and musicians, ENTJ personalities include Jim Carrey, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Dwayne Johnson, and multi-awarded singer Adele.


MBTI Personality Type Making the Least Money

On the other hand, the MBTI type who makes the least money is INFP. It makes absolute sense as these types of people tend to deliberately prioritize others over themselves and are inherently service-oriented. As mentioned above, they are idealists who passionately wish to have a better world for people where there is less suffering and less social injustice.


While most if not all of the following individuals have ironically made a lot of money in their careers, the emphasis is on their idealism. INFP people could be authors, activists, and influencers, like Lord of the Rings author J. R. R. Tolkien, Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling, disability rights advocate Helen Keller, inspirational Jamaican singer Bob Marley, The Beatles singer John Lennon, English actor Robert Pattinson, and the Australian and Joker actor Heath Ledger.
