Everyone has their own distinct personality, but some people are more unique than others. According to statistics on MBTI (Myers Briggs) personality theory, the rarest personality type in the world is INFJ—the “Advocate” personality. INFJs are idealists who want nothing more than to leave a mark on the world by helping others. They’re altruistic, inspiring, insightful, creative, and passionate.
Representing just 1.5% of the population, INFJs share their personality type with the likes of Martin Luther King, Lady Gaga, and these 18 K-Pop idols.
1. Taeyeon (Girls’ Generation)
Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon used to get ISFJ on personality tests, but during promotions for “Happy”, she revealed she’s an INFJ now. Interestingly, ISFJ is actually the most common personality type, found in 13.8% of people.
2. Kai (EXO)
EXO’s Kai took the MBTI test live for fans back in December last year. When he looked up more information, he learned that his personality type is similar to that of a cat.
