My MBTI in Books

My MBTI in Books

MBTI, aka the personality typing system that some of us (*looks around innocently*) never grew out of obsessing over and still find the best way to describe ourselves. It’s really quite fun. 😉

I’m an INFJ. *awkward finger guns* *disappears*

If you’re unfamiliar, here’s a good explanation of this type…

(I just love how those last two are a contradiction. *glares into the void*)

Before I get into the books that remind me most of these types, here is an obligatory meme dump just because they crack me up.

I knew they forgot something 😭
It’s either a terrified “What’s up?” or the kind that means “Tell me everything so I can heal you–take this snack and blanket–this is a safe space”.
Too true. And if you take it the wrong way, yes sometimes we aren’t paying attention and absolutely repeat your questions back to you…

I love being an INFJ, and every time I go on a meme or research spree, I end up feeling even more understood in all my awkwardness. 😂

But now to the real blog post, books that remind me of being an INFJ. 😉 (Click on the titles to see my reviews.)

Introvert — The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This book has such a quiet soul, tuned in to observing people and loving them in all their humanity but definitely from afar. It also gives me autumn vibes, which I feel like is the season we introverts thrive most.

Intuitive — The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

This book is such a beautiful feast of metaphors, journeys through thought, and adjusting the way we all look at the world, that it seemed to fit this category perfectly. ❤

Feeling — The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

I included this one entirely because of the main character Rainie. He’s always got a gut feeling and works his best to understand and follow it. It also helps that I adore this series. 😉

Judging — Annie’s Life in Lists by Kristin Mahoney

This book is literally written in lists, a.k.a. the most orderly story ever, so there’s that. 😉

There you go! Thanks for reading this zany peek into my personality. 😉

Does your personality type share any of these categories? And have you read any of these books or are you currently adding them to your TBR? 😉

  1. Oooh, I love this!! MBTI personalities are just the most fascinating thing to me EVER. When I did the test I was shocked at how accurate it was, and I was immediately obsessed.😂 I’m an ESFP.
    I related to the “I heard that change in your tone” meme. XD
    Those first three books are all on my tbr!! I’ll have to look up the last one, it looks so cool!!

    1. Aren’t they so much fun?! Like, it makes a ton of sense and it’s a fun thing to connect over. Ooo, very nice! Haha, high five!

      Aw, yay! Fyi, I read a censored version of The Book Thief because it has some strong language and violence.


  2. Ahhh that totally makes sense that you’re an INFJ! I can see that! XD Literally so true about the memes…I always feel so understood when I see a meme relating to my personality type or just introverts in general 😂 I haven’t read any of these books, but am planning to! (Oh, and I’m an INFP, because of course. 😆)

  3. What’s this? Somebody else obsessed with MBTI? As an ISTJ, I have to agree on The Book Thief for the Introvert part, but as a fellow Judger I admit I’ve never read Annie’s Life in Lists. So if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go read your post on it and probably check it out from the library…
