Since Lady Gaga is coming to the U S Airways Center here in Arizona this weekend, I thought she might be an interesting person to talk about in terms of personality type. In the book It’s Not You It’s Your Personality, my daughter Toni Rothpletz and I wrote a chapter about Myers-Briggs testing and gave some examples of personalities with certain personality types. I recently read that Lady Gaga is an INFJ. We mentioned a few celebrities in our book that also have this type, including: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lance Armstrong, Dan Aykroyd, Richard Gere, Woody Allen and Billy Crystal.
For those of you unfamiliar with Myers-Briggs INFJ stands for:
Myers-Briggs.org defines INFJ personalities are those who:
“Seek meaning and connection in ideas, relationships, and material possessions. Want to understand what motivates people and are insightful about others. Conscientious and committed to their firm values. Develop a clear vision about how best to serve the common good. Organized and decisive in implementing their vision.”
The “I” in her type means she likes to think before she speaks. The “N” means she is intuitive and is obviously creative. The “F” means she makes her decisions based on her values. The J means she is not really spontaneous but likes more structure.
The good news for those of you who are thinking about attending the concert here in Phoenix is that since she has a “J” in her personality type, she’ll probably be on time!
