BTS‘s V has a brand new MBTI personality type: INFP, the Mediator. Here are 10 of this type’s strengths and weaknesses.
1. Strength: Empathy
INFPs have a huge capacity for empathy. They care about other people and can feel another person’s emotions as their own. As such, INFPs are known to be kind, loving souls, who go out of their way to avoid hurting others. They are harbingers of harmony and compassion.
When V’s members are going through a rough time, he’s always there to lift their spirits and offer support.
2. Weakness: Lacking practicality
INFP are highly idealistic people with a rich inner world. Sometimes this idealism gives them unrealistic expectations of how their life should be. As such, they can be very hurt and let down when things don’t go as planned. Fortunately, V is an INFP who made his big dreams into reality!
3. Strength: Tolerance
This non-judgemental type is known for welcoming and accepting all people. They are open-minded and more willing than many other MBTI types to get along with people who have a much different personality than their own. That certainly sounds like ARMY’s social butterfly!
4. Weakness: Isolation
Like many introverted types, INFP can struggle socially and end up feeling isolated. They approach new environments with caution, sometimes closing themselves off from making new friends in their community.
Unlike more gregarious types, INFPs are often content to have fewer friends who they form deep bonds with.
5. Strength: Creativity
V has a talent for music, dance, and visual arts, so this comes as no surprise! INFPs have a unique way of looking at the world, exploring ideas, and creating projects.
6. Weakness: Lack of focus
Sometimes, the INFP’s introspective way of thinking can send their mind off in a thousand different directions. They may have a hard time focusing and turning their grand ideas into actions.
7. Strength: Passion
INFPs don’t do anything half-heartedly; they commit to their causes and passions. While not as outspoken as other types, they fiercely champion their beliefs and find ways to share them with the world. In V’s case, he expresses himself through his art and his music.
8. Weakness: Too critical…
…of themselves. They are perfectionists who want to live up to their potential. Being second-best just won’t cut it. As a result, INFPs can be too hard on themselves, picking apart their own flaws and perceived failures.
9. Strength: Idealism
If there’s one thing INFPs are passionate about, it’s making the world a better place. They want society to be the perfect place they believe it can be. Through their music, activism, and philanthropy, V and his members are changing Planet Earth for the better!
10. Weakness: People pleasers
INFPs are non-confrontational people who desire harmony in their relationships. As such, they can have a tendency to bend over backwards for others, to the point of feeling drained, if they neglect their own wellbeing. Balance is key!
