Which MBTI type is best for different life stages?

There is no doubt that in certain stages of life, different MBTI types have different advantages. This article shall address which MBTI type achieves maximum happiness (which assumes it is the best type) at six stages of life- primary school, secondary school, University, young adulthood, mid adulthood and retirement. Infancy is not covered, because it is assumed that babies MBTI types haven’t developed and it is difficult to record when we have no infants to ask.

When children are young, introverts are generally more shy whereas extroverts are generally more sociable. This makes being an extrovert in primary school far easier. Additionally, in primary school T types generally succeed as they don’t get as personally offended by their peers honesty. Thinking types are generally more honest and more rational, and combined with the more concrete, practical thinking of S types, this can make for a happy, easy going childhood. Additionally, perceiving types are most likely to enjoy the fun activities presented by many of the primary school activities.

In high school, being a T type is helpful in order to show resilience to the high school drama surrounding you. Additionally, being a J type is useful in order to achieve social status, in a stage of life where peers opinions and social hierarchy are considered most important. Finally, extroverted types are more likely to succeed in high school life, to be invited to many fun events and get involved in the active high school community.

Assuming that University is attended, the intuitive types shine far more in University. They are surrounded by clubs that allow them to enjoy different open minded activities, and they more quickly figure out (and enjoy) theoretical concepts. In particular, University allows for flexibility in sharing a vast array of ideas, making Ne types particularly stand out. Additionally, University is a time in which there is a lack of social structure, where everyone can hang out with anybody depending on who they enjoy. This makes the harmonious and peaceful Fi types fit in well. Therefore, ENFP types generally succeed most at the University stage of life.

In early adulthood, things start to change. Social life is not considered as important, and according to Erickson’s stages of psychological development, intimacy is perceived as the most fundamental value. This means that close-knit relationships, such as family, close friends and serious relationships start to form. Generally, introverts, particularly the hard working Si types, are likely to succeed at both working hard in their field and fulfilling their ambitions in the workplace, as well as maintaining these interpersonal relationships due to the stable characteristics of introverted sensing types. Generally, this Si, combined with Te, allows the practical and logical ISTJ dominate learning the early steps of adulthood with caution, consistency and bravery.

In mid adulthood, things begin to change. By this stage, most are parents and their goal, according to Erikson, is to look after the household, children and succeed in work. Again, this allows the SJ types to succeed. Additionally, the nurturing Fe types will thoroughly enjoy this stage as they get to watch their children grow. This makes the ESFJ types most successful in this stage of life.

Finally, in the retirement stage, INTP are generally most happy. For once in their lives, INTP types are given the opportunity for: flexibility to explore ideas (Ne), only do things when they wish to (P), only socialize when they wish (I) and generally fascinate over their intensely interesting ideas and theories. Therefore, INTP’s succeed in the retirement age.

Which MBTI type relates to each season? (Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring)

There are many factors that we must consider when determining which season is best. We may enjoy one season because it is our birthday, or we may prefer a particular temperature and weather. However, one often overlooked aspect is personality.

I believe that certain MBTI types are best suited for different types. Let’s investigate:

Summer

Firstly, Summer time strongly corresponds with the ESTP type. Se types are considered the fun, in the moment types, and most people think of the beach, swimming, the park or other outdoor activities to enjoy the sunny temperature. Summer is indeed one of the best times to experience the outdoors and to embrace new opportunities. For example, on a recent visit to America during mid winter, many opportunities were closed off- they were only available in summer. Summer is perfect for the fun loving Se types, supported by the competitive and fun nature that Ti’s often enjoy. This leaves me with the conclusion of the ESTP being best suited for summer.

Autumn

Secondly, Autumn correlates with the ISTJ type. As Si types enjoy practicality and simplicity, Autumn is the perfect season as the weather remains consistently safe, not too hot or cold, as well as being very repetitive without anything extreme out of the order or out of reach due to the weather. Often described as the safe (and sometimes boring!) types, ISXJ’s would feel right at home in Autumn! Additionally, T types see the logical benefits to Autumn, whereas the more emotional F types may become more easily depressed by the Autumn temperature. Therefore, ISTJ types are best suited for Autumn.

Winter

Thirdly, winter is best suited for INFP’s. During the cold weather, many people are naturally more inclined to stay indoors, and hence this makes the perfect weather for introverts. In particular, introverted intuitive types most probably enjoy this time to invest time in their creative projects, and to give them some time from the extroverted sensing dominated society. Additionally, many Fi types would embrace the uncertainty and excitement of the season. Therefore, INFP’s are best suited for Winter.

Spring

Finally, spring is best suited for ESFJ’s. Much like autumn, spring is another in between season in temperature- it is consistent, and not on either extreme scale of temperature (not too hot or too cold like summer and winter respectively.) Therefore, the Si type would enjoy this weather. However, the extroverted, Fe types, who also go for consistency, would not enjoy the ugly, lifeless autumn. Dominant Fe types (particularly ESFJ’s) enjoy beauty, hence the ESFJ type most strongly correlates with spring.

Which MBTI type is most likely to cheat?

Hey guys! I know a lot of you have been getting pretty restless for your favourite MBTI writer’s latest blog post! Just so you all know, I’m not Tatl33, the usual writer for this website. I’m a past writer who has returned once more, keen to write more content for this incredible community. That being said, I hope you all enjoy and follow Which MBTI type on Facebook and Twitter.

Cheating in relationships has been, and seemingly always will be, a topical issue. Survey after survey has proven that many people value trust and commitment in a partner. From scandalous TV actors to dirty politicians, the media continues to report on cheating celebrities time and time again. On top of all this, statistics clearly show that the rate of divorce is rapidly increasing, surpassing 50% in America alone. So which MBTI type is most likely to be involved in an affair? The answer is simple: an ESTP type.

Cheating is considered very bad in modern society. Which MBTI type challenges the norm?

The first factor to consider is I vs E. Cheaters generally are more likely to be extroverts, as extroverts draw energy from their social interactions. As a result, extroverts not only have a more extensive circle of friends, they also seek out the company of others more often compared to introverts. This in turn gives them more opportunities to cheat, making extroverts the prime candidates for being a double-crossing partner in a relationship.

It also makes sense that sensors are more inclined to cheat on their significant others compared to intuitive types. On the one hand, sensors are more present-oriented, living life in the moment above all else. The S temperament is therefore perfect for cheating. N’s on the other hand focus more on the big picture, making them more considerate of how their actions could affect their partner. A cheater is obviously a lot more likely to be a sensor.

Next on the list is the T vs F types. As we all know, feelers make their decisions based on people. They consider how their actions could affect their personal relationships, and do not want to compromise their good will with others. If an F type was to cheat, they would damage their bond with their partner. In addition, F types generally have a set of core values that they feel passionately about. They do not want to perform an action that would compromise their morals – this means it would be very unlikely that an F type would violate the trust, loyalty and commitment that they share with another person. In comparison, when thinkers make decisions they are less likely to consider how the outcome could affect their personal relationships. Therefore, they are more compelled to cheat in the pursuit of personal gratification, without thinking about the consequences on others.

So a cheater is clearly an EST type, but are they more of a perceiver or judger? Because of their spontaneity and less future-oriented approach, perceivers are generally much more inclined to pursue an affair. Perceivers are also open to new ideas, and are less conforming to typical notions of morality. They could make the spontaneous decision to cheat on their partner of twenty years, for example, without considering the future ramifications.

In conclusion, the dirty dogs are clearly the ESTP’s. Next time an ESTP walks up to you in a bar and gives you their number, be wary folks! And if you’re already in a married relationship with an ESTP, I’m sorry to say this but you might just become another divorce statistic.

Which MBTI type is most likely to cheat in your experience? Do you think cheating is more dependent on personality or something else? Let me know in the comments below. I love hearing your insights and intend to respond to all of you :)
