Keirsey takes the 16 MBTI types and places them into four groups of people, believing that the people in these groups share similar mindsets. These groups are:
- The Guardians - ESFJ, ESTJ, ISFJ, ISTJ.
- The Artisans – ESFP, ESTP, ISFP, ISTP.
- The Rationals – ENTP, ENTJ, INTP, INTJ.
- The Idealists – ENFP, ENFJ, INFP, INFJ.
Both introverts, and extraverts are capable of showing traits of both of the two types. They are just as equally able to be in solitude, and to be in the company of people.
Just because you are shy, doesn’t mean you are introverted, and just because you are loud doesn’t mean that you are extraverted. Character has nothing to do with personality. Remember, that. It’s where your thoughts are directed. What kind of thoughts are you more concerned with? Are they more concerned with the subjective, or the objective?
