Hey there, ARMY! How often have you gone exploring online and come across some of those personality tests? Or even more common now, how often do you get asked what your MBTI is?
Recently, BTS answered this question once again by posting “MBTI Lab 1” and “MBTI Lab 2” videos on their official YouTube channel, BANGTANTV. In today’s blog, we will go over what we learned about BTS through their MBTI videos.
What is MBTI?
MBTI – which stands for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator – is currently a popular introspective self-questionnaire that is said to determine a person’s personality type, strengths, and preferences.
The results have a few variations, and as a person changes, so do the results. This has happened to BTS a few times. In the first video, they address this early on, saying how they have taken the test a few times and shared them with ARMY starting from 2017.
BTS Members’ MBTI Results
BTS’ MBTI results for 2022 were as follows:
RM - ENFP, which stands for extraversion, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving. A person with this personality type is described as passionate, warm, imaginative, confident, proactive, and flexible.
Jin - INTP, which stands for introversion, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. A person with this personality type is described as logical, calm, adaptable, focused, skeptical, critical, and analytical.
SUGA - ISTP, which stands for introversion, sensing, thinking, and perceiving. A person of this personality type is described as generous, flexible, observant, analytical, cause and effect, and efficient.
j-hope - INFJ, which stands for introversion, intuitive, feeling, and judging. A person with this personality type is described as understanding, insightful, strong values, organized, and decisive.
Jimin - ESTP but later changed it to ESTJ as he believed that suited him better; therefore, ESTJ stands for extraversion, sensing, thinking, and judgment. A person with this personality type is described as flexible, generous, active, realistic, and spontaneous.
V - INFP, which stands for introversion, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving. A person of this personality type is described as an idealist, curious, catalyst, adaptable, flexible, and receptive.
Jungkook - INTP, which stands for introversion, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. A person with this personality type is described as logical, calm, adaptable, focused, skeptical, critical, and analytical.
Passionate and “Overly Serious” Discussions
Getting to know more about each member is great, but one of the funniest parts is witnessing how these different personalities interact. When BTS were asked to answer a few scenario questions created to bring out each personality type into a debate...well, chaos ensued.
The members all began to immerse themselves in the questions at different levels, which made their answers and debates that much more fun to watch. They answered questions that asked what their reactions would be if a friend acted a certain way.
In the second video, they left ARMY a gift, which was a bonus clip that had many of us erupting in laughter. The discussion was about the now famous perilla leaf debate: Is it ok or not if your significant other helps your friend peel off a perilla leaf?
Most members agreed that it wasn’t a big deal; j-hope highlighted that if there is trust in the relationship, then it doesn’t matter. Jungkook was the most passionate in giving his firm “No” answer as he said the action would lead to marriage. There was so much chaos in that discussion that Jimin broke his chair because he was laughing so hard.
Watching them have fun was entertaining and brought a lightness to discussions that could possibly turn awry. We were left with a better understanding of the different outlooks on life each member has and how much they have grown.
It is nice to see how no matter their difference in opinion, the members can always reach an agreement when it comes to the group. If anything, these videos showed how important their teamwork is. With so many different traits in each member, it would be difficult to make a decision on certain things, but BTS have found a way to work and live in harmony with each other, and that has made them become stronger together as both a musical group and a family.
The members summarized the whole thing well: although the tests are fun to take and discuss among each other, they shouldn’t be taken too seriously. People are different and change constantly. Therefore, test results from something like an MBTI will only stay current at certain points in time. When the results vary as time passes, consider it as an indication that you are evolving as a person, given your current circumstances.
That’s all for today, ARMY! We hope you enjoyed the blog, and let us know if you share any similar traits with BTS, or even better, share what your MBTI is!
