Personality quizzes and quizzes about beloved Disney characters are always popular ways to combine entertainment with education — after all, Disney fans can learn a little bit about themselves while learning which Disney princess they’re most like — and one website has just paired Disney princesses with their respective Myers-Briggs personality types!
The British News Post has categorized Disney princesses based on the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types in the classification system, and some of the results for the ‘Disney princess cast’ might surprise you! According to the website, “there are a total of 16 MBTI® personality types, with each one detailing how an individual perceives and interacts with the world, as well as whether they are an introvert or an extrovert. These personality types can be used to reveal new aspects of a character or reinforce their signature traits”, much like an enneagram classification does.
The site categorized Raya from the 2021 movie Raya and the Last Dragon as an ESFJ, saying that “ESFJs are highly conscientious individuals who highly value their friends and family, and do their best to provide for them. Comprehensive and capable in their duties, ESFJs strive for harmony, making this the perfect type for Raya”!
The analysis included several often-forgotten Disney heroines who might not have made the official Disney princess list, including Megara (who received an ISTP classification), Esmeralda (ISFP type, due to her feisty independence), and Atlantis: The Lost Empire character Kida (who was classified as an ENTP due to her intelligence).
Some of the more famous Disney princesses also received personality types. Princess Aurora from the 1959 Disney movie Sleeping Beauty is apparently an official Disney princess who is also an INFP due to her “curiosity” and her “sweet” nature. The ‘little mermaid’ Ariel was labeled as an ENFP due to her enthusiastic approach to life, while seafaring heroine Moana’s determination and empathetic nature made her an ENFJ.
A more “reserved” Disney princess, Elsa, is apparently an INTJ — and the good-humored but feisty heroine Merida would apparently be an ESTP! Plenty of the other classic Disney princesses were also given Myers-Briggs personality types (including Belle, Mulan, Cinderella, and Princess Jasmine). More modern official Disney princesses like Tiana and Rapunzel were also included!
