Which MBTI type are modern countries?

After reading several articles, I figured it would be interesting to analyze how the various countries relate to MBTI types. I tried to include as many countries as possible for the various people who would be reading this article, based on the various viewing numbers I get from countries. For example, I’ve got 3.5k total views from Singapore viewers on my blog, so I decided it would be important to include Singapore on the list. I’ve done this process to discover the various countries from around the world people are viewing from. Enjoy:

  • Canada- ESFJ
  • England- ISTJ
  • USA- ENTJ
  • Australia- ESTP
  • Germany- ISTJ
  • Italy- ESFP

  1. That is an interesting take on things. I would have rated the countries by the leadership. When the leadership changes, the direction of the country changes. For example, Barack Obama is and INFP personality, and his policies and behavior is clearly in that vain. Reaching out and dialoging with other leaders is a good example of this.

    • tatl33 says:

      Thank you, and good point about the different leaders having an influence on the typing of the country. It is interesting you say Obama is INFP- I’ve seen some say INFP and others say INFJ. Why do you think he’s INFP?

      • jdieqzx says:

        There is no way Obama is I. In fact, almost no Presidents, since the invention of TV has been I. Lincoln is the only President that we know to be I. They have all been J as well. They are seemingly 100% sure of themselves even when they have no clue.

        • tatl33 says:

          Fair enough, if you certain Obama is an I you are probably right!
          Do you really think they are all J though by nature or because they are trying to keep the media happy? I’m sure that decisive demeanor is just to seem confident and keep the support

      • AHHH hell no, he’s not an INFJ. No way. A malignant narcissist can’t be an INFJ. Probably an INTJ or ENTJ.

        • Anonymous says:

          I, an INTJ, wouldn’t consider myself ‘narcissistic’…

        • Ali Nawazish says:

          Narcissism has nothing to do with personality types, beginner. Furthermore there is no “good” or “bad” personality, no personality more prone to any specific “sin”. The method of manifestation of any sin, lets say in this case, narcissism is certainly different. Many of history’s most humble people have been INTJ’s/ENTJ.

        • Lollie H. says:

          As an INFJ I would say that we can tend to have as many narcissistic characteristics as any other type (if not more, xD).

        • Anonymous says:

          I read an article stating that Hitler and Bin Laden were INFJ (just like Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela). As an INFJ I was pretty shocked. But if it’s correct it just goes to show you what happens when personality types make extreme choices. Good or evil, what path are you going to take?

    • Jeanne says:

      Obama is an Extrovert. There’s a record of the mbti of different politicians. No INFP on there. CelebrityTypes label him as ENTP and 16Personalities say he is ENFJ. Either way he is not an INFP.

        Kim Jong-un is really what an introvert,
        Or someone you an extrovert to be seen, I suppose … hehe.

        You seem a little like Kim Jong Un is an introvert, rather than Abe and Park Geun-hye

    Hello there, interesting assessment, however, I think that the US is more a ENFJ country, those high ideals of freedom and the american way reek Fe in my humble opinion. Cheers.

    • tatl33 says:

      Thank you, that’s a good point- I typed ENTJ in their values for justice/truth, but I can see that your opinion is probably just as correct! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Jacob says:

        No, while an ENFJ might reek of enthusiasm, they also tend to actually be well liked.

        People don’t like the US as much as Americans think they do. We’re also hyper conscious of our sense of morality. Your post is accurate

        Source: I am an ENTJ

      • daum korea says:

        US justice, truth up, the entj

        Yes indeed!

    • Anonymous says:

      America’s strongly held values of justice, freedom of speech, being true to one’s self, and individual rights practially scream Fi to me, especially when compared to East Asian countries that put a very strong emphasis on modesty, respecting elders, and speaking tactfully and indirectly, which are Fe-based behaviors. I would argue that Japan is an ISFJ and the U.S. Is an ESTJ.

    I ctrl+f “INTJ” and the only result is Germany. How fitting I moved there two years ago then ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. ENFP says:

    Germany clearly is ISTJ, had and still have a hard time living there as an ENFP.
    Full of rules, shy and even close minded ppl, and cherish education and work more than any fun.
    Ok, i am exaggerating, I’m still a patriot, dont get me wrong but it nearly killed me.

    • tatl33 says:

      Interesting, does your current country match your MBTI type more closely?

    • Anonymous says:

      Yeah, I’d say the German stereotype is very ISTP – keeps to itself, detail-oriented, extremely well organised, very big on rules, regulations and bureaucracy.

    • enfp ozzie says:

      That is funny as I have lived in Germany for nearly 1 1/2 years…I thought it was just that I come from Australia and that it is the cultural difference (and central heating) making me feel suffocated at times. Now I know it is just my personality ๐Ÿ˜‰ I had to laugh with the ISTJ assessment of the country as my best friend is ISTJ….maybe there is still hope for me in Germany ;). Just hard learning the language and looking for an inspiring job

  5. Hi! I was just wondering: on what basis do you type the countries?

    • tatl33 says:

      Hey Francine ๐Ÿ™‚
      I base the countries on several factors- the perceptions of the country on a global scale, the political mindset of the country, the economic state/social conditions, the history of the country that has led it to its modern state, the future goals of the country and the personalities of various celebrities that the country is associated with. In doing so, through much research on various websites and discussion on some forums such http://www.forumsec.org/pages.cfm/about-us/member-countries/
      I have combined these factors to decide the identity that each country is best associated; this helps me calculate the MBTI type of the country. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Christian says:

    USA is very varied in culture. For example: compare North Dakota to New York City. http://science.time.com/2013/10/22/the-united-states-of-attitude-an-interactive-guide-to-americas-moods/
    This map shows the average score on Big 5 tests in each state (No Alaska and Hawaii). It comes out that New York is far more open than North Dakota is, so if we compare that results to MBTI, we get iNTP vs. eSfj.

    • tatl33 says:

      So true- a lot of countries would be far better if divided; it would be hard to do though due to the sheer number of countries I had to type. Maybe in an upcoming article… ๐Ÿ˜‰
      And thanks for the read on the Big 5 tests! Very interesting, and it makes sense doesn’t it? Many do associate NY with these traits don’t they?

  7. Christian says:

    Also Austria is very J. I live there and we’ve got a large bureaucracy. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I say the north of Europe is J (everything is structured and organized) and the south is P (more freedom, sometimes chaotic). I’m an ENFP and I often struggle with all the regulations and the chit economy.

    • tatl33 says:

      Oh, why do you think that the south is more P? Do you think it’s due to political structures/economy/society issues that cause it to be less controlled?

      • Christian says:

        Yes I meant political structures. For example, take Greece. They have an extremely chaotic administration. That’s what killed them (among other issues). So I suppose their culture isn’t different.

        • tatl33 says:

          Good point- so your saying that a more chaotic political structure is more P? I guess that makes sense- there is often also more freedom of speech amongst P systems, I think. Do you agree?

          • Christian says:

            Not necessarily freedom of speech, but the freedom of actions. A P-culture would rather allow you to do things the way you like.

          • tatl33 says:

            Which I guess comes with pros and cons. Like P’s have a more relaxed environment but less ordered; so many movies are made in which the J’s are overthrown by P’s as the world is seen as oppressive; in the same way, many are made in which an anarchic world is brought under control. What do you think is better a P culture or J culture?

    Indonesia is definitely not an N. I live there and it’s really full of xSxP, mostly xSTP. And basically, all countries on the equator are mostly S people because they tend to live in the present since the weather barely change. After SP, it’s probably SJ, specifically ESFJ because we’re really religious and conservative yet really nurturing people.

    • tatl33 says:

      Okay! Thanks for the feedback ๐Ÿ™‚

      • jdieqzx says:

        What a great question. Applying Myers Briggs on a Macro level is a great idea. Very INXX!

        • tatl33 says:

          Thanks jdieqzx! I love to see your involvement in the blog!
          Do you have any other INXX/macro level blog ideas that you would like me to examine?

          • Anonymous says:

            I too like your theory on Sensing and the seasons! I think fictional characters (and abstractions like countries) are typed as Ns too often because people see it as “are they more or less intuitive than average?” But Ms make up roughly a quarter of the population.

  10. jdieqzx says:

    In general, any country should reflect a weighted average of the myers Briggs personalities by quantity and influence. And that would appear to be true in organizations of almost every type, government, private, non-profit unless artificial selection takes place. Repeated testing shows SJ types to outnumber SP, NP and NJ by a significant margin. The culture at a given point in time would reflect an SJ mentality in most countries.

    However the infrastructure (laws, engineering, science, books) will always reflect the IN group. The IN group builds on itself. It is not “in the moment”, but long term. They write more then all of the other personalities combined but are outnumbered in quantity. And they understand each other in ways the rest do not. So we have an INXX infrastructure (mostly logical, not highly aggressive, with laws to protect people, a seemingly civilized, rational society) being occupied by an SJ culture. This is the key to the disconnect in most societies.

  11. Alex-Scandelari says:

    Japan and Korea INFP?? You must have some sort of mental problem. These countries are NOT
    intuitive by no means, (they are NOT creative and imaginative at all, they are past-present oriented societies.) certainly not feeling nor perceiving, especially japan, which is extremely judging. They are ISTJs, bloody conformist intolerant ISTJs.
    The USA is ESTJ, hands down, anyone knows that.
    Switzerland INFJ?? Swiss people are extremely logical, unemotional, stern and rigid, certainly more or at least as much as T as Germany or Austria. Switerland is not INFJ.
    Indonesia INTP?? What the hell… They are ESFPs, as many tropical countries are.
    This list is almost entirely wrong. You have lost credibility with your readers, seriously.

    • tatl33 says:

      Thanks for the feedback and I took some of those into account, the others I will reconsider. Remember what the factors are that I’m basing the countries on…:

      I base the countries on several factors- the perceptions of the country on a global scale, the political mindset of the country, the economic state/social conditions, the history of the country that has led it to its modern state, the future goals of the country and the personalities of various celebrities that the country is associated with.

      • cyberboypower says:

        I’m not sure but I still don’t think Indonesia as an INTP country, even seen from those different perspectives. I think the whole world see us as an ESxP country because of the vandalism in the country. Political mindset is probably xxFJ. The social condition is really conservative, xSxJ I guess. Our history? Hm, I guess our first president which is the most important part of the independence is an ENTJ, since he is a really charged guy with a lot of charisma and have planned for stand up against US and USSR by creating a neutral side (which ended up fail, miserably :/). Our future goal, I guess is definitely ENTJ. Yeah, because our founding father and our majority religion’s prophet, Mohammed are both an ENTJ. Celebrities? As far as I know, we don’t have any famous people in the US which is born in Indonesia or a direct descendant of Indonesian people :'(. *envy toward Filipino*.

        • tatl33 says:

          Okay, so your future goal is ENTJ! This is interesting because you said that the country is EXFP right now? I guess there are so many factors to consider though. What would you personally type Indonesia?

          • cyberboypower says:

            I don’t know. I can’t type my own country :|. There are so many different people with various characteristics here.
            Maybe you’re right, we’re an INTP country, LOL. I mean, it’s not that INTP makes up the biggest percentage in our country(not even close to 5% I guess), it’s just that we have more INTP people in percentage compared to other country. It’s like how you type Japan as INFP, I think I kinda agree because Japan invented so many ‘weird’ invention that so many people may think as ‘useless’. It’s not that INFP makes up the largest percentage of people in Japan. It’s just that Japan has so many INFPs compared to other countries.
            Future goal is ENTJ? LOL, yes :). I know it sounds stupid to not become who you truly are, but I think everyone in this world kinda want to be ENTJ or at least as a second option beside their own MBTI type *wink*. It’s just that they’re the richest, the most educated, the most respected, the most powerful, and the list goes on and on. They have the wit of NT type and power of ETJ type.

          • tatl33 says:

            I sort of agree that most countries DO want to become ENTJ. In some ways, an ENTJ country, or an ESTJ country, could be seen as the most indestructible country.
            Yeah you nailed it when you said that it’s about how much percentage of the type does a country have compared to other countries. That was a big calculation when I typed each country, rather than just finding the most common MBTI type in each country

    Hello. I just want to add that the majority of US population is ESTJ and korea is ISTJ-22%. INFP in Korea is only 3% or less of the population.

    • Anonymous says:

      p.s. I know because I’m an INFP person and lived in both Korea and US for a long time. I have so much inner struggles and always felt like I don’t fit in any society. Our leaders certainly included different types-ENFP, president Noh- but I think that still the majority is ISTJs, which is also surprising for me because koreans are known to be the emotional ones. It is perhaps because the majority of older generation is ISTJs. I feel like it is related to the high suicide rate in korea because it is just not a supportive environment for INFPs, especially if you have istj parents only. I sort of diverted the topic but I hope it helps.

      • tatl33 says:

        No I find you’ve dug deeper into a more important topic! Thanks for sharing!
        What were your parents MBTI type? ISTJ?
        And yeah I agree that a lot of the older generation appear to be ISTJ. Have you noticed in Korean culture NP is becoming more prevalent? I find the entertainment industry in Korea is on a boom, and the creativity is sparking. Well that’s what I’ve observed, correct me if I’m wrong.

      • MikeJ says:

        Japanese and Koreans simply function differently. Japanese are focused on taking weak ideas and making them brilliant. Look at the best car makers. Did you know Lexus is a high grade Toyota? Koreans are focused on making profit from stealing ideas. The two neighbour countries don’t get along because Korea STEALS the ideas those mass production.(just like they stole a few Japanese islands) Go to any Sushi restaurant in North America, you’ll meet more Koreans then anywhere else. Or just look for a Honda on the road, you might mistakenly find the latest -> Hondai. I don’t wanna put hate on either side though, I’m just giving a big red card on personality.

  14. tatl33 says:

    Thank you for providing me with this insight. You are definitely right that the US has many S traits. You could be right! What I’m not understanding is the J? I can understand that the US values order and structure a lot, however it is also very against corruption and values liberty more than many other countries, wouldn’t you agree? Feel free to convince me otherwise, I’m not doubting what your saying about the J over P thing, I just want further insight ๐Ÿ™‚

    India is not an INTP nation. India is ESFJ or ISFJ Nation.clearly traditional/superstitious/family-oriented nation. hierarchy is very important in India.

    • SS says:

      Agreed. Apart from that, I imagine India was typed as INTP here partly also because of the software engineer thing as well, but as a software engineer in India, I can confirm that most people who take up this line of work do so because of social pressures or because of the career prospects. I personally went to college with a batch of students who openly admitted they hated computers. The concept of majoring in something like Art History or English is not foreign here, just often looked down upon (unless you come from a really rich background that can support you), which actually further adds to the conformist aspect of the majority of Indians.

    • Anonymous says:

      1)ESFJs respect and believe in the laws and rules of authority, and believe that others
      should do so as well. They’re traditional, and prefer to do things in the established way, rather than venturing into unchartered territory. Their need for security drives their ready acceptance and adherence to the policies of the established system. This tendency may cause them to sometimes blindly accept rules without questioning or understanding them.
      2) They have no internal understanding of values to set them straight. In weighing their values against our society, they find plenty of support for whatever moral transgression they wish to justify. This type of ESFJ is a dangerous person indeed. Extraverted Feeling drives them to control and manipulate, and their lack of Intuition prevents them from seeing the big picture. They’re usually quite popular and good with people, and good at manipulating them. ……aren’t these true for the Indian society?!
      INFPs find it very difficult living in their surroundings.

    • MM says:

      If you typed N (intuitives) for India, I think the INFJ, INFP, ENFJ are best for it because India have strongly Hinduism spiritual culture strongly and value the hierarchy also.

    I find It a little interseting that all the Nordic countries are INFJ. Out of my own curiousity, why would you say that?

    • tatl33 says:

      I found that the five Nordic countries all have a similar social structure to each other, but one that is quiet different to the larger majority- much like INFJ’s- they will be similar to a few others (INFJ’s or similar types) that they are similar to due to their uniqueness, but are different from the majority

  19. Nk says:

    Im an Indonesian btw, ive lived in several provinces during my younger times. Indonesia is most definitely an “E” dominant country, not an “I” AT ALL. Also terrible both Se and Ne, always has been lacking of visionary, realistic, and practical leaders, extremely strong “P” factor and incredibly low “J” factor.
    I would say.. indonesia is ExxP.
    Seeing the happy, lazy, hedonistic, emotional, and communal character of the people id say Indonesia is inclined to ENFP.
    I really dont belong in this country.

    • tatl33 says:

      Interesting! I can actually see that. And you have more of a first person experience with Indonesia as a country, so you are right. I’m gonna change Indonesia to ENFP ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Anonymous says:

      I agree. I went to Bali, Indonesia and lived in an ashram for a couple of months. The guru there is definitely an ENFP and he’s a very prominent figure in Balinese society.

  20. Helena says:

    Interesting list and I’m a great fan of your blog!
    I’ve lived in Germany, Switzerland and England so far. Switzerland is an extremely conservative country without much creativity and entirely focused on work. A lot of people willingly want to be bankers, the language and mentality is very slow and most people have been farmers in the past, the biggest fear is to stand out. Most people are very precise, good at time management and organised. I would say ISTJ is the most fitting description.

    Germany is a bit trickier, I know a lot of German extroverts, although the country seems rather introverted at first glance. Germans are not afraid to voice their opinions and like arguing rationally. There is a big trend towards organic food and renewable energy. They are generally very resourceful, logical and future oriented. A lot of politicians have science degrees. I would say ESTJ or ENTJ seem reasonable although there are a lot of STPs. Thinkers and judgers are definitely a majority.

    England seems like a mix of ISFJs and some eccentric NPs to me. Entertainment industry and Academia seem Ne and Ti focused to me. There is still a big class divide going on. England is definitely introverted and Fe is important, it’s not as traditional as it might seem at first, the Si was stronger in old days. It’s a bit weird that there are so many social rules but people are not supposed to show a lot of feelings.

    Anyway, that’s my point of view. It’s very hard to generalise populations of millions of people

    • tatl33 says:

      Thanks so much Helena! I’m so glad to hear that you, who has lived in many awesome places, are interested in my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you have any suggestions of what I should write about next?
      Yeah it is difficult to generalise populations of millions, and I had to consider so many different factors in this list. You’ve nailed it in your list though, and you’ve had experience in the three countries which certainly helps. Which country suited you best? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Interesting take on the MBTI – I too have thought of MBTI types for countries over the years. Of course, this is a subjective exercise and everyone will have differing views. Whilst I agree with some of your assessments, I think you’re off the mark on some. The ones that jumped out are Ireland and Netherlands especially. I’d say Ireland is either ESFP or ENFP, certainly not T or J whatsoever ( think Spain without the sun) ! I’ve also worked in NL quite a lot and as they are the timekeepers of Europe and extremely direct in communication, I’d say NL is ESTJ, definitely not F or P.
    Thanks for posting this interesting blog

      Thanks Susan! I love your opinions ๐Ÿ™‚

    i have a question, which country is better living as a infp? thank you.

  28. Anonymous says:

    (Sorry, it’s an old post, I know) One question that bothers me : Is the type you’ve shown representing the average mindset you find in a specific country or rulers of said country ?

    I live in Switzerland, and as far as I’m concerned, the overall mindset if I had to say is ISTJ, kind of like Germany like others said, it’s kind of strict, people come generally across as a bit cold to strangers. They tend to judge people often and a lot of different things tend to be percieved as weird or bad by a big part of the community. (But the young people are usually much more open) But the problem is that depending on where you live in (not only in Switzerland by the way), the mentality can change drastically if you go to another region. So it’s hard to say that they have one specific type for the whole country. I once lived in a very INFP-ish village. The one just 5 km away was ESFP dominated. Then I moved to another village in a different valley but very close from where I lived : INTJs EVERYWHERE !!

    I know that in Ticino they are much more extroverted and chaotic, while the North-east is very structured and almost a tad snobby, for example, yet we’re such a small country.

    You mean in terms of the culture, state/government, or the majority of the population’s personalities? I’m an Indonesian INTJ and I’d say the majority of Indonesians are ESFP/ESTP (the culture is generally very communal as well, and being individualistic and evenโ€”to an extentโ€”being introverted can get one labeled “selfish”). It drives me insane. LOL.

    I have a hard time agreeing that Indonesia is ENFP because the majority of Indonesians (and the government as well as most of its leaders) tend to lack Ne (Extraverted iNtuiting). It’s not a safe place to be a minority of any sort (racial/ethnic, religious, sexual, or simply being an independent thinker). I don’t recommend opening up to people until you are absolutely certain you are not dealing with a bigot (unless you are a foreigner, in which case you will be toleratedโ€”which is why I can understand how/why a foreign citizen would think Indonesia is ENFP).

  42. This is an interesting post and I really love it. I first learned about the MBTI in a college course about 4 years ago. The test itself revolves around an individual’s “preferences” on the introvert-extrovert, sensing-intuitive, feeling-thinking, and perceiving-judging scale. Therefore, I can see how countries may have preferences on each of the four scales and I actually think researchers should objectively examine this. Note: Just because a country has a preference on one of the four scales does not mean they will not fit under the opposite at times. With that said, I would like to give my insight on some of the countries and an explanation based off of my reading about certain country’s governments, social environment, and people even though I have never left the United States. I also think the sensing-intuitive and feeling-thinking scale has a huge role in determining how liberal a country is with intuitive and feeling being the liberal preferences. Perceiving-judging also has a small role in determining whether a country is liberal with perceiving being the preference.

    USA- YOU: ENTJ
    ME: ESTJ (Guardians) because the USA is pretty socially conservative regardless of how liberal the current government may be. Canada is actually more progressive than USA socially. Also, the USA did not originally create its so-called democratic ideals, but its constitution authors merely observed conventional philosophers such as Aristotle, Machiavelli, and others. The United States does not like change either especially when it pertains to government and I mean real change and not only change via elections. The United States also believes it is the Guardian of the world which often bsckfires.

    France- YOU: INFP
    ME: I agree because many democratic ideals and ideologies originate from France and not the United States which gets most of its so-called democratic ideas from Europe. It is pretty socially liberal as well.

    Canada- YOU: ESFJ
    ME: INFJ because they are more socially liberal than the United States. That is very simple.

    You mentioned Germany twice: ME: Germany has a preference for INTJ because like France many political ideas originated there even though some are considered undemocratic by USA standards and some led to human rights violations.
    Germany- YOU: ISTJ
    Germany- YOU: INTJ

    England- YOU: ISTJ
    ME: ISFJ because they are slightly socially liberal than USA because of the history of the Labour Party and its socialist ideas.

    Sweden- YOU: INFJ
    ME: I would agree with the NF scale because of its socially liberal and feminine culture and welfare state model. This is the case for all Nordic countries and the Netherlands because of a similar culture.

    Netherlands- YOU: ENFP
    ME: Has a similar culture to Sweden.

    Finland- INFP
    ME:Has a similar culture to Sweden.

    Norway- YOU: INFJ
    ME: Has a similar culture to Sweden

    Denmark- YOU: INFJ
    ME: Has a similar culture to Sweden

    Brazil- ESFP
    ME: I agree because Brazilians love fun, material things, beaches, dancing, and traditional institutions like family. But the government tries to be intuitive in how society functions by attempting to follow a European welfare model while at the same time following a USA system of government. I would give Brazil’s government a slight preference for ENFP and the culture ESFP.

    Mexico- YOU: ESFP
    ME: Similar to Brazil in most aspects.

    Greece- YOU: ENFJ
    Austria- YOU: ISTP
    Serbia- YOU: ISTP
    Wales- YOU: ISFJ
    Italy- YOU: ESFP
    Spain- YOU: ESFP
    Ireland- YOU: ESTP
    Poland- YOU: ISFJ
    Czech Republic- YOU: ISFJ
    Lithuania- YOU: ESTP
    Belgium- YOU: ISTJ
    Romania- YOU: INFJ
    Hungary- YOU: ISTP
    Russia- YOU: ESTJ
    Slovakia- YOU: ISTJ
    Croatia- YOU: ISTP
    ME: In general, I would give most European countries a slight preference for “feeling” because of the history of emotional social revolution (Lennism, Stalinism, social democracy, socialism, welfare state) that often resulted in “thinking” countries to a greater degree. Most of these countries provide satisfactory universal health services to their population regardless of income (welfare state/social democracy and socialism)

    Australia- ESTP
    New Zealand- ESFP

    Japan- YOU: INFP
    ME: Skeptical because of the rigid culture. Very innovative and tech savvy country so I give it INTJ..

    Republic of Korea- YOU: INFP
    ME:Same as Japan. Rigid culture and quite innovative so INTJ.

    China- ESTJ
    ME: Perhaps it competes with Russia as the eastern version of the USA.

    Singapore- ISTP

    South Africa- ESTP
    India- INTP
    Phillipines- ESFP
    Peru- ENTP
    Indonesia- ENFP
    Malaysia- ESTP
    Switzerland- INFJ
    Turkey- ESFJ
    Israel- ENTP

    With that said, I have tested as an INFP on the “official” online MBTI called MBTI Complete. I have also taken a variety of the free MBTI assessments online such as Humanmetrics, 16Personalities.com, and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter. On the Humanmetrics, I tested as an INTP most of the time, but sometimes as an ISTP. On 16Personalities.com, I have always tested as an INFP. The free online Keirsey Temperament Sorter does not place you in one of the 16 types, but classifies you under one of the 4 general groups: Guardians (SJ), Artisans (SP), Idealists (NF), and Rationals (NT). My results have mostly been Idealist on that assessment, but once as an Artisan (SP). Therefore, I have mostly been assessed as an INFP, but perhaps depending on the circumstances I can switch to ISTP (Artisans) or to INTP (Rationals). Again, the test measures preferences.

    – I don’t agree with Belgium being ISTJ: when it comes to structure and rules, Belgians are often described as ‘so laid-back they might fall over’. Belgium is also strongly influenced by social ideas. I’m fairly certain Belgium is ISFP instead.
    – I’ve also lived in Wales and I think ISFJ could be correct although I’d lean more towards ESFJ.
    – South-Korea has me puzzled, but I’d strongly doubt it would be an INFP country. They do seem to use Ne to further advance their country, but Si seems to overrule this function a lot of the time. I’d reckon South-Korea could be an ESTJ, even though that’s the exact opposite of the suggested INFP.

  51. Arakkun says:

    I’m from Italy, while I didn’t think mbti would be that followed from italian peoples, I must say that most of the people I saw here are either ESTP ( Most young peoples, especially males. Like most of my colleagues of the university (-I’m even in computer engineering, where I was supposed to find lots of NTs-) or most of the peoples who like parties, drinking alcohol and so ) or ESFJ ( Mostly females, like my mum, my aunt(x6), the fiancee of my brother (my brother is an ESTJ). Or in general most of the peoples who follow blindly the catholicism (which are, in fact, Ti-inferiors) ).

    Italy is both a country with people who accept what the pope say blindly (like, the pope say; “xxx is wrong” and they respond “xxx is wrong because the pope said so) and of people who cheat in all things.

    • tatl33 says:

      Interesting. I’ve heard some people say that. I was typing the country, however you’ve given a great interpretation of how different groups of people in the country can be typed. Thank you, I found this insight very valuable. What’s it like being an NT in Italy?

      • Arakkun says:

        -Politically-
        You find some desperate cases of people who are, in fact, unable to formulate opinions and just go with the masses.
        Take for example the… “Grillo” phenomenon: he is a Paranoid -pretty much- who have lots of … “ideas” that are fucking dumb, but since they pretty much are good -externally- for the masses and support what they want, they just follow him like sheeps. about ~33% of italian follow him.
        Another third of Italians follow Berlusconi blindly or for reasons -as he support them by making ad-personam laws- while he pretty much hided the economic situation of Italy was harsh.
        Most “dumb” activists either follow him (Brambrilla, she proposed a law that abolished the consume of meat, or want to protect the “nutria” which is pretty much the reason for most of the hydrological disaster and at the same time a problem for the same animals) or Grillo (well… one of his follower was deemed as saying one of the “most off” thing by NY Times, after all! (he said Africa was half under multinationals and half under Ebola)).
        Another third is with the PD/Renzi. Most of their voters are either voting them because he provided a good campaign, because they were the most viable alternative in the elections, because they didn’t want someone like Grillo or Berlusconi to govern Italy and so.
        Renzi seems to be governing pretty much better than mosts of the peoples of the last years (pretty much 80% of my life had seen berlusconi as the head of government…) and is pretty much doing some “good” things from some points of view ( while Grillo’s party M5S is seeming only good to say “what you’re doing is wrong/is an attack to democracy” without discussing or even saying why that).

        -Religion-
        There still is the “brute” tradition of baptizing childs when they’re born.
        They are basically imposing catholicism on them, which is wrong. Most of the people pretty much impose catholicism as religion and hear what the pope say without questioning themselves.
        My not being catholic posed me many problems with peoples imposing me to go to the church, which I think is quite … dumb. Almost all people where I live go to the church, but most of them are close-minded and, for example, where against the opening of a centre that was needed to help immigrants that came here for many reasons ( all of them being the same italians emigrated to other countries in the past ) or I heard them tattle about lots of things they not have the proof of.
        So most are catholics for traditions or because they were imposed so. Especially, they general think that catholicism is right in all things.

        -Schools-
        Almost all teacher from all grades aren’t that good in teaching.
        They teach you to study thing at memory, and not to “learn” the logics behind them.
        Even in the university, there are still lots of teacher who have a things for using the same procedure as them and studying all things they say at memory and passing subjects for a Ti/Ne is really hard minus the rare NT teachers who provide to be open minded to new methods an giving a plus when you use “different” methods than the usual.
        I don’t study much, but I like to study many, many, many subject even if just for curiosity, differently from the general “you need to study for work” consensus.

        -Family-
        Other than the problem I said, I found some problems typical of INTPs.
        For example, my family thoroughly fought my introversion by imposing me to go out, have many friends and such. Things that probably made me quite unsure about myself and hit my self esteem hard.

        -Peoples-
        Studying IT Engineering I found lots of people with minds close to mine, peoples to play with -I like playing, if it wasn’t for my lacking luck-. There still are good peoples I… somewhat met mostly in internet, which by italian is described as a “devious” place full of bad peoples and such ( well, real world is the same ), or at some Cons from various types.

        Might as well be enough, for now

    Living in Brazil I have to agree with the ESFP/J type. When we look at the laws, they’re very xNFx, they were influenced for some french ideals. But socially, most people love to party, to drink alcohol and soccer. (many successful songs here are about these things). At the same time most people are very conservative and go to the church. They value family and believing in God and Christ. The predominant religion is the Catholic (more than 70% of the population). A brazilian-japanese psychology professor told me that brazilian mothers behave like Mary (mother of Jesus), a mother that is always good to her children. In politics, most people choose a candidate at the moment, they don’t think about the future or who they are voting, they just go and vote with emotion not reason. So, being an INxJ here is a little bit tricky. I spend most of my time at home, reading about different subjects, watching to TV, I rarely go to crazy parties. I’m kind of socially akward here.

    Even being famous for flowers and weed doesn’t make The Netherlands remotely ENFP. The Dutch are one of the most fiercely introverted, and pragmatic nation on earth, this is an ISTJ nation like Germany, just with less intense J. Whatever ‘soft’ social policy that we seem to have, it doesn’t come from empathy and embracing principles, it’s simply to ‘leave people be’.

    • Nuberschutze says:

      You’re right that The Netherlands is nothing like ENFP, but it’s not ISTJ either. Rather, ESTJ is the – fairly obvious – type that comes to mind.

      E – The Netherlands is likely the most extrovert country in the world. Its entire economy, culture, and political policies are all based on interacting with others. The systems that drive Dutch companies (and schools) are all based on (excessive) interaction. And Dutch people themselves enormously glorify extroversion and are rightfully known as the loudest people on the planet. The way they tackle problems is to discuss them, at length, repeatedly, and ALWAYS in a group. No matter if an individual could tackle such a problem far more efficiently and effectively. Independence – and introversion – is very often seen as a character flaw in Dutch culture, even if they will openly (falsely) claim to value it.

      S – Absolutely correct. Dutch policies & people are the ultimate pragmatists. Simple is better, according to most Dutch people. Making connections and discussing complex topics are not typical Dutch strengths. This is also the reason why the Dutch have an insane number of “managers” in their corporate environment: Dutch workers are expected to be unable to see beyond their own small tasks.

      J – Actually no less intense than German J. The difference here is purely I vs E: the Dutch seem less J-oriented, because they talk so much and so openly compared to Germans. But The Netherlands is among the most bureaucratic nations on the planet. There are rules and regulations for everything. Furthermore, Dutch people love to be insured for anything and everything that they could easily cover themselves should the 1-in-a-million-chance event occur. And the schooling system has no less than seven levels of high school and three levels of college. All clearly indicating a J-dominated culture that lacks any hint of Ti / Fe.

      T – seems strange to outsiders, but is absolutely correct. Dutch policies are fairly progressive and social, but that’s motivated by pragmatism, not empathy. In fact, Dutch culture almost completely lacks empathy. The fact that they are loud and openly discuss everything does a lot to hide that at first glance, but don’t be fooled. Thinking and talking things through (Te) in a straightforward manner (Si) is how they handle problems. A typical Dutch person is callous and shallow, the vast overwhelming majority will walk right past anyone who is in trouble. Their Si-Fi then tricks them into feeling guilty about being so callous which is why they spend so much on charities. They also participate in A LOT of volunteer work, but it’s curiously almost universally non-empathic work. The classic examples of volunteer work, care-giving institutions which require empathic individuals, have massive shortages of personnel. It’s also very obvious in their despising “false” friendliness. Any hint of overt Fe is seen as not just wrong, but cringe-worthy.

      If you look at functions it’s very obviously an ESTJ culture. Te is in the lead, because everything is driven by systems that form through lengthy discussion. Si follows – and is usually what triggers the Te problem-solving. The clear indicator that typical Dutch people are ESTJ and not ISTJ is in Fi being their weak function, not Ne. If Ne was so repressed, then the Dutch wouldn’t love their spiderwebs and brainstorming sessions so much. See Germans for a good example of how ISTJ would function. Similarly, they wouldn’t be so judgmental about everything that deviates from the “norm” or so easily motivated by wanting to make themselves feel better. Those all point to weak Fi. Or you could just spend a few minutes among them and notice how fucking loud they are. The extroversion is beyond insane. So far beyond normal that they even consider most extroverts to be introverts that “need to be fixed”. (very SJ way of thinking)

      Mind you, this is all generalization. Most Dutch people will be exceptions to all of the above in some way. But the overall Dutch culture – and the mindset they grow up with as the “norm” – is definitely ESTJ. As also evidenced by the Dutch saying “doe normaal”. Being “normal” is the greatest virtue in Dutch culture, far beyond any realm of sanity. And there’s nothing that screams SJ more loudly and clearly than that. In this sense they are VERY different from the Scandinavian countries.

      What do I base this all on?
      Growing up and living in The Netherlands as an INTP.

    • croner007 says:

      This is all way too general but I’d say South Korea in a nutshell could be ESFP. I’ve lived there for 8 years. People in general love to go out and party hard and socialize. You can’t even go eat alone. There’s even a youtube channel where people film themselves eating a lot of food alone cause eating alone or going to do anything alone is not normal. Next, I’d have to say S. AS a teacher trainer, people have a hard time being intuitive about things here. They need to be told how to do everything. With all the industries focusing on tactile sensory things (cell phones, clothes, etc.. etc..) I’d say focusing on the senses is very very common here over abstract out of the box thinking. Next, although Koreans are known for their intelligence, its’ not necessarily logical and rational. Korean people are very emotional . Ever watched a Korean drama? They also are very concerned about how others feel about them and see themselves as part of a whole. Lastly, I’m not sure about J or P. I’d say Korean people are fast to adapt to changes as they have a bbali bbali (hurry up) culture do to being invaded so many times in teh past that they had to ge tup and leave quickly. Korea developed themselves so quickly in the past adn that’s because they were adaptable to new changes. They are pretty adaptable. In my experience, they are more open to changes than other countries I’ve been in. They might be turbulent during the changes, but they seem to be pretty open to developing and possibilities. That’s what I think! The ESFP stands for “Entertainer”. Psy and K pop are taking over Asia in the entertainment areas so maybe this is where Korea is going ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am an INTJ and I find both Switzerland and Germany suit my personality best compared to any other country. I have been dreaming to be able to live there someday. I’m from Indonesia and I think most of people here are ESFP, including my Mom. Sometimes I think I don’t belong here lol

  68. Jeanne says:

    I don’t think China’s ESTJ, I get where you’re going though. But as someone who lived in China for 8 years it doesn’t seem that accurate. The culture’s so varied. TOO much variety, really. The people in cities like Nanjing and Xi’an seem to fit ENXPs better. Meanwhile bigger, westernized cities like Shanghai and Shenzhen are definitely for ESTJs.

  74. Nuberschutze says:

    India is definitely not INTP. The INTP type tends to despise tradition and tries to subvert it at every opportunity, whereas India is a country steeped in tradition.

    To be honest, I don’t think you can apply INTP to any country. Some might have INTP leaders, but an INTP is a force of change. A country of INTPs would be a country of anarchists. It would be enormously divided and governed through change. There are only two countries I can think of that would qualify:
    – Ancient Greece
    – Republic of the Seven United Netherlands
    Both fell apart primarily due to infighting..

    Otherwise I think you can only say that countries take on INTP traits during moments of great upheaval:
    – Revolutionary France
    – Revolutionary America
    – Japan during its recent nuclear crisis

    I love how nobody’s complaining on Brazil being ESFP because it’s just too obvious! Brazil is definitely the most ESFP country in my opinion, I’m Brazilian-American and I’ve been to Brazil countless times, though I’m an ENTP so I’m a bit argumentative for their tastes, Brazilians are all so friendly! Plus Brazil as a country is rather well liked and of course, very entertaining culturally.

    Canada – ISFJ
    Germany – ISTJ
    United States – ENTJ judging by national values and mentality, ESTJs are the most widespread type however (but America is so diverse that it’s hard to type the whole country. West Coast seems to be more NPish, whereas South and Midwest are more SJish. New York is textbook ENTJ)
    Israel – ENTJ
    Finland – I*TP (S or N unclear)
    Japan – ISTJ, but more N than Germany
    Britain – textbook ESTJ
    Ireland – E*FP
    Sweden – INTJ
    Singapore – INTJ (taxation system is totally different from Sweden’s though)
    China – I*TP
    North Korea – ISTJ
    South Korea – ISTJ, but more N than North Korea
    India – textbook ENFJ
    Palestine – textbook ENFJ

  83. whoami says:

    Interesting! This is quite true. With Philippines as an ESFP country. And Japan as INFP. Spot on.

  84. Swiss-INTP says:

    As a Swiss person I perceive Switzerland as definitely IxTx. I would have said the most likely is ISTP. I will try to rate the other countries I have been to:

    Germany = ISTJ (a lot more J than switzerland)
    Austria = ISTP
    USA = ENTJ (way too much scheeming for an S)
    Japan = ISFJ
    India = ESFJ
    Philippines = ESFP (child)
    Russia = INTJ (but conservative)
    Spain = ESFP
    Italy = ESFP (but very different from Spain)

    The other countries I’ve been to I don’t know well enough politically & culturally to make a guess.

    I know little people here in Germany being ISTJ, but we are always considered as ISTJ. I hope I’ll get out of this country soon. xD
