In the book It’s Not You It’s Your Personality, there are a lot of celebrities listed as examples to explain personality types. Although that book covers most of the major personality assessments out there, one of the most important assessments it addresses is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
A new beta site CelebrityTypes.com is now available with information that identifies intellectuals, authors, and other public figures according to their psychological type based on the MBTI. I, Diane Hamilton, am an ESTJ. The example celebrity shown for that type on the celebrity types site was Dr. Phil. It would be interesting to see Dr. Phil’s actual results because he comes across as making decisions based on his values which may put him more toward an ESFJ.
Is this site completely accurate? Maybe not and they note that there as well. Without the person actually taking the MBTI, it can be a lot of guesswork. The authors noted, “a reported type must be regarded as a hypothesis and never as an exact, final depiction of that person.”
Whether completely accurate or not, it can be fun to speculate. On the left side of the site, there are links to each type where you can see other examples of celebrities within each type. Other examples of this author’s ESTJ type include: Condoleeza Rice, Michelle Obama, Judge Judy, and Ivanka Trump.
This site does a nice job of listing the percentages of people within each type, best romantic matches, and general information about what it means to be a certain type. For more information about this site click here. For more information about It’s Not You It’s Your Personality, click here.
