Which MBTI type is the most feminine?

Feminine: Relating to women or girls.
Which MBTI type is the most feminine? Let’s find out.
Girls are, in a stereotypical sense, generally social people. As a result, the extrovert is more likely to be feminine than masculine, by a very small proportion. As well as this, feeling types are more likely to be feminine also, and a feminine trait is to follow trends that are occurring, as a result sensors more often come across as more feminine. Finally, judging and making decisions is considered a masculine, as a result, perceiving is considered a feminine trait. As a result, ESFP’s are considered the most feminine.
Now, start to think about the common ESFP’s that are portrayed in the media, which is where the feminine stereotypes are created. For example, when you think of an ad campaign, the ESFP- the bright and happy woman- is far more successful in portraying your stereotypical woman compared with an INTJ. For this reason, the most common feminine type is the ESFP.

    Got to disagree with ESFP as most feminine. I would think a J personality is most likely to acquire strong gender traits. Ps are adaptable and will adjust with a situation. The J strives to follow the rules and whatever traits are believed to be feminine they will stick to. ESFJ is more likely.

    ESTP is the most masculine type; therefore, INFJ is the most feminine type.

    If you add up the totals for men and women…

    Men: thinkers
    Women: feelers

    Men: perceivers
    Women: judgers

    Men: intuitive
    Women: sensors

    Men: introverted
    Women: extroverted

    Put that together and the most “masculine” personality type is the INTP
    the most feminine “the ESFJ

    this makes sense to me because the INTP is also called the engineer
    the ESFJ the supporter
    I know these are gender roles to the max, but hey, numbers don’t lie

      INTPs are surely NOT the most masculine type. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the cognitive functions, but traditional masculinity would be either Se (extroverted sensing) dominant or auxiliary. INTPs are pretty low energy and don’t “do” as much as the stereotypical male would. I would say ESTP is the most masculine type. Plus, I disagree with femininity being extroverted. Stereotypically, men pursue women. It would only make sense that femininity would be introverted because females are associated with passivity. I would agree that femininity is Fe. Although highly debatable, I would say that the most feminine type is INFJ or ISFJ.

      I would disagree with “perceiving men = masculine”. The ideal of a masculine man would be one who is decisive and assertive and thus a judger. Alpha males are in the minority by all accounts. I would think perceivers would go in the beta male majority.
