For a lot of us K-pop fangirls, knowing our fave idols' MBTI personality type is one way for us to feel closer to them.
The MBTI, or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, composes of 16 personality types and is seen as a brief insight into how people make decisions, how they tend to interact with other people, and how they see challenges.
Of course, there are some people who don't *totally* believe in it (FYI, it's advised to take the MBTI with a grain of salt), but it's still a pretty cool way to know people's personalities.
So let's get right to it and get to know the personality types of our fave Korean idols!
Analysts (ENTJ, ENTP, INTJ, and INTP)
A similar trait among analysts is that they are all imaginative, curious, and innovators.
As a person who takes something they believe in and does something about it, ENTJs are decisive people who know what they want and dive in headfirst to achieve it.
