Whether or not MBTI personality types are a true measure of a person’s character is somewhat controversial, but it’s still an interesting bit of knowledge to know about yourself, or your favorite idols!
ATEEZ has taken the MBTI personality type test, so it’s public knowledge which types they all are. From this information, even their ideal types can be determined (to some degree)! This is mostly just for fun based off of the stereotypes of what each of their types are like, and not what the members have actually said for themselves, so do keep that in mind.
1. Seonghwa, Wooyoung, and Jongo: ESFJ (The Caregivers)
Seonghwa, Wooyoung, and Jongho are all the Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging personality type. These types typically love people, and are interested in others and bringing out the best in other people! When it comes to dating, ESFJs are said to enjoy traditionalism, but also with a bit of excitement — for example, starting out with dinner and a movie, but finishing off the date with something adventurous like a horseback ride or nighttime beach stroll.
They also enjoy people who are courteous and polite, though with a bit of an element of surprise as well! Communication is extremely important to ESFJs, especially in that it must be authentic and respectful.
2. Hongjoong and San: INFP (The Idealists)
Hongjoong and San are both the Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving personality type. This personality type is focused on making the world a better place, and thinks deeply about the meaning of life. They tend to be idealists and perfectionists as well! When it comes to dating, these types desire deep emotional honesty in a relationship, the kind of relationship where both parties can comfortably open up about their deepest thoughts and desires.
An ideal type of date would be something that allows their partner to talk about what they enjoy and care about — for example, at a bookstore where you can discuss your favorite stories, or a museum where you can talk about your favorite pieces. Dates that have personal meaning, such as helping at a soup kitchen or volunteering for some other organization, are also high on the list.
3. Yunho: ENFJ (The Givers)
Yunho is the Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging personality type. This personality type is also incredibly interested in taking care of others, and tend to have excellent social skills. The love to support and encourage those they care about, and get satisfaction from seeing others succeed from their encouragement.
In terms of dating, they crave to go on dates that allow a deep, rich, authentic experience with the person they’re with. They want to get to know what makes their partner tick, and explore the human mind. They also have a sense of adventure, though, and an impromptu midnight swim or anything that will get their blood pumping would be enjoyed!
4. Yeosang: ISFJ (The Nurturers)
Yeosang is the Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging personality type. This personality type is, above all else, kind and warm-hearted, and they tend to see the best in others. Harmony and cooperation are what they desire, and they are highly intuitive to the emotions of others.
In dating, old-fashioned romance and courtesy is what they crave. They’re very in tune to how their date treats others, and how engaged they seem to be in the date. These types are sensitive to dishonesty and disinterest, and have to have a lot of trust in their partner to enjoy themselves. A quiet, intimate home dinner date would be the perfect type for an ISFJ.
5. Mingi: ENTP (The Visionaries)
Mingi is the Extroverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving personality type. This personality type’s deepest desire is to understand the world around them, and they are constantly taking in information about their surroundings and environment and have a keen intuition in sizing up situations. Because of this, ENTPs tend to have a deeper understanding of life and people than most.
When it comes to dating, they really enjoy mental challenges. Dates that would involve deep thinking and fascinating conversations that would open their mind to new possibilities is what they would like most, so they have to have a date that can have intelligent conversation! They also have a spontaneous romantic side, however, and something such as a sudden weekend getaway or romantic picnic at the beach would be a great addition.
