    Names by Myers and Briggs Personality Types

    I've never formally studied Psychology but recently have taken a lot of interest in the sixteen personalities and am finding myself imagining names belonging to people of certain personality types. This applies more to writing I guess since you can't pick and choose who a real person will become, but are there any names you associate with a certain personality type?

    I REALLY love this question. . .I'm a psychology minor and personality theory is my favorite subset.

    I'm an ENFP so I obviously know more about my particular personality and have a clearer idea of what names I feel would fit my type. I think Molly is the perfect ENFP names. Others: Felicity, Flora, Minnie, Poppy and Georgiana.

    I would probably associate more unique names (by that I mean not high in popularity) with the more extraverted personalities because it would be more of a conversation starter. Individuals with common names wouldn't be questioned as often (if at all) about their names.

    Introverted types are more likely to need an icebreaker, though.

    I am a textbook INTJ, conforming to all stereotypes (save gender). Since we're the cold, aloof, logical rationalists, I envision a set of crisp, no-nonsense, consonant-heavy, yet 'intellectual' names.
