Here’s How You Handle Being Chastised, Based on Your Personality Type

While being reprimanded for our mistakes is never a comfortable situation, some people handle it much better than others. Here is how you handle being chastised, based on your personality type.

 

INFJ

INFJs certainly don’t enjoy being chastised for their behavior, and might become frustrated by this. They want to feel comfortable to be themselves and sometimes that includes making a few mistakes. INFJs will take being reprimanded rather harshly when it comes from someone they love and care for. INFJs don’t enjoy constantly being reprimanded, especially since they can already be rather hard on themselves. They need support and understanding, and really don’t enjoy someone who seeks to chastise them constantly.

ENFJ

ENFJs often don’t respond well to being chastised, and might become a bit defensive. They are often very responsible people, who prefer to take care of things themselves. ENFJs are already very hard on themselves, and don’t really appreciate when others seek to put them in their place. ENFJs can become rather upset when their loved ones try to reprimand them, and will take this rather harshly. ENFJs seek to be the best they can at everything they do, and struggle when people act like they have failed.

INFP

INFPs definitely don’t enjoy being chastised by others, and can become very defensive in these situations. They prefer to feel free to make their own choices, and have a strong moral compass. INFPs are aware when they have made an error in judgement, and dislike when someone tries to bring this to their attention. They need time and space to figure out their own actions, and don’t want people trying to put them down for things. INFPs can also struggle when they feel reprimanded in a relationship, and can take certain criticism rather harshly.

ENFP

ENFPs are strong people, but there are some things they just don’t handle well and being chastised is one of those things. When the ENFP feels like people are reprimanding them for something they have done wrong, it instantly feels like criticism. They feel as though they are being torn down, and like their very character is being attacked. It can be difficult for ENFPs to handle being chastised, and they might find themselves become angry or depressed over it. They need plenty of space to be themselves, which often includes freedom to make a few mistakes.

 

INTJ

INTJs definitely don’t handle being chastised well, which is actually something that shows up from a young age. They don’t enjoy being told that they have done something wrong, and would rather figure these things out for themselves. If someone tries to reprimand the INTJ for their errors, they can become defensive and angry. They have strong morals, but they are very personal and private about them. INTJs don’t want others trying to dictate what they should and should not do, and prefer to make these decisions on their own.

ENTJ

ENTJs aren’t fans of being chastised by others, and can become both angry and defensive. ENTJs prefer to be in control of their own actions without feeling like someone else is attempting to tell them what they should do. ENTJs will often become angry with someone who attempts to reprimand them, which can sometimes be difficult in relationships. They need someone who doesn’t accuse the ENTJ of making mistakes, but rather points out their own personal needs in a calmly manner.

INTP

INTPs don’t enjoy being chastised, especially if it is delivered in an unreasonable manner. They can definitely receive criticism in a calm and logical explanation, and are fully aware that they make mistakes. INTPs can already be hard on themselves though, so when someone is reprimanding them continuously, it can deeply upset them. They need to feel like their mistakes can be fixed, and like they can move on from whatever they have done wrong. If the person shows the INTP how they can improve or fix their mistakes, it will be received much better.

ENTP

ENTPs definitely don’t enjoy being chastised, especially if it is delivered without any real reasonable explanation. For ENTPs it is important to continue growing, so they welcome someone trying to help them on this journey. If someone tells them they have made an error in the judgment, the ENTP simply wants proof along with some helpful ways to fix the problem. They dislike when someone approaches them with useless criticism, especially someone they love and care for. ENTPs can become hurt by this sort of attack, and might feel like they are failing someone they love.

 

ISTJ

ISTJs can often handle a certain level or chastisement, as long as it is delivered in a helpful manner. They are hardworking people who will take their mistakes as a way to improve. When someone informs the ISTJ that they have made an error in judgment, they will want evidence and tips on how to improve. They will continue to work hard and will often push themselves to be even better than before. ISTJs take everything as an opportunity to improve on themselves, as long as it is delivered in a practical manner.

ESTJ

ESTJs can struggle when it comes to being reprimanded, often because they strive for a certain level of perfection. When the ESTJ has made a mistake they want to be shown how they can improve for the future. They don’t enjoy being seen as flawed, and want to push themselves to be better than those around them. ESTJs might take certain chastising harshly, especially if it is delivered by someone they care for. They might become defensive in some situations, and will try and prove that they have done nothing wrong.

ISFJ

ISFJs definitely don’t handle being chastised very well, and can internalize this in a negative way. ISFJs want to be seen as giving people, and strive to make sure their loved ones are cared for. If someone tells them they have made a mistakes that requires reprimanding, the ISFJ will become deeply hurt by this. They might become defensive, in hopes of proving that they have done nothing wrong. Ultimately they will try to find a way to fix their mistake, and will work towards creating a sense of harmony in their world once again.

ESFJ

ESFJs can sometimes struggle when they feel chastised by someone, especially if it is a person they care for. They dislike making mistakes and work hard to avoid disappointing others. When the ESFJ has been reprimanded they can take this to heart, and might beat themselves up over it emotionally. They will likely spend a lot of time reflecting and will try to find a way to fix their mistakes. While ESFJs might work on improving, they can also take this criticism in a more defensive and frustrated manner.

 

ISTP

ISTPs don’t appreciate being reprimanded by others, and might become rather displeased by this. They don’t enjoy having people tell them what they should and should not to, especially in a judgmental manner. ISTPs are independent people who strive to live in the present, and experience life on their own terms. When someone attempts to chastise them, they will either become angry, or ignore that person completely. If their loved ones are upset with the ISTP, they need to approach them in a calm and logical manner and not in a tone of chastising.

ESTP

ESTPs can be surprisingly hard on themselves, and might take chastisement rather harshly. If their loved ones reprimand them for a mistake, they will either become hurt or very defensive. ESTPs want to be seen as impressive to the people around them, and dislike when people point out their flaws. If they feel like they might lose someone, the ESTP will try and work on their mistakes in order to prove themselves. Ultimately though, they don’t handle being chastised well at all, and can become rather frustrated by this.

ISFP

ISFPs are internal and emotional people, who believe in following their strong sense of morals. If someone attempts to chastise them for their actions, they can become rather defensive. ISFPs are aware of their own actions and mistakes, and don’t need other people pointing them out. This can often feel like they are being put down or like their character is being attacked by someone. ISFPs prefer to live in a safe space, where they aren’t judged or reprimanded when they aren’t perfect.

ESFP

ESFPs definitely don’t enjoy being chastised and can become very defensive in these situations. They want to enjoy life, without someone constantly pointing out what they have done wrong. ESFPs won’t often take being reprimanded very well, and will usually take it as harsh criticism. Instead ESFPs would rather someone approach them in a more personable way, and explain why they feel personally hurt. If that person isn’t expressing feelings and instead just reprimanding the ESFP, they will become hurt and defensive.

Here’s How Well You Handle Being Wrong, Based on Your Personality Type

Written By Kirsten Moodie

Here’s How Well You Handle Being Wrong, Based on Your Personality Type

Some people really don’t enjoy being told they are wrong, while other’s can handle it much better. Here is how you handle being wrong, based on your personality type.

 

INFJ

INFJs don’t mind being wrong, as long as it isn’t delivered in an accusing and harsh manner. They understand that they cannot always be right, and aren’t so full of themselves that they cannot handle being corrected. For INFJs it can be upsetting if someone tries to insult them by saying they were wrong, and will want to avoid people like that entirely. They actually accept being wrong much better when it comes from their loved ones, and will be more open to hearing the truth from those people.

ENFJ

ENFJs definitely don’t enjoy being told they are wrong, especially since they try hard to be perfect for their loved ones. When the ENFJ realizes they’ve made a mistake it can leave them feeling like they might have failed in some way. Their ability to handle being wrong entirely depends on how the news is being delivered, and if they feel the need to be defensive or not. ENFJs aren’t incapable of seeing their mistakes, they can just struggle to accept it sometimes.

INFP

INFPs don’t like being told they are wrong, and won’t just accept it immediately. They have strong beliefs and dislike when people try and challenge them. When they believe in something that means the INFP has taken a lot of time to think it through and make their decisions. When people simply go against that without having a sturdy reason to support it, the INFP will become very frustrated. They can accept it from someone they trust, especially if that person presents the information without being rude about it.

ENFP

ENFPs don’t like being told they are wrong, especially if that person doesn’t deliver the information logically. They want someone to show them the facts and give them time to process it before making their decisions. ENFPs can accept when they are wrong as long as the person delivering the news isn’t being self-absorbed or pompous about it. ENFPs do enjoy looking for the truth, they just prefer to approach things on their own terms without someone telling them what they should believe.

 

INTJ

INTJs definitely don’t just accept being told they are wrong, and might become irritated by this. They prefer to look at the facts and spend a long time searching for the truth. If someone tries to accuse the INTJ of believe in something that isn’t true, they will require plenty of facts in order to actually take it into consideration. They are open to being proven wrong, but it actually requires solid proof and not just someone’s opinion.

ENTJ

ENTJs don’t handle being told they’re wrong very easily, and need a lot of information to actually process whether or not it is true. ENTJs prefer to have plenty of facts and dislike when someone simply accuses them of being wrong. ENTJs are often prideful people, who work hard to make sure they have absorbed enough information to make their decisions logically. They are intuitive people and they believe in working hard and being efficient. They will accept that they are wrong when they have seen plenty of information to change their minds about something.

INTP

INTPs can accept being wrong, especially if it teaches them something new. They won’t simply accept being told they are wrong though and need plenty of information and facts in order to actually believe this. INTPs take a lot of time before making a decision about something, and dislike when someone tries to challenge it without adequate information to back it up. They don’t mind exploring new possibilities, but would prefer someone who can actually debate the subject properly.

ENTP

ENTPs actually enjoy being challenged, and feel like debating something can actually help them learn more about it. For ENTPs just being told they are wrong is frustrating because they want someone to present them with facts and information to facilitate a real discussion. Being wrong isn’t the worst thing for an ENTP, since they realize they can often learn from this experience. It might take a lot to actually prove them wrong, but ENTPs enjoy the challenge.

 

ISTJ

ISTJS definitely don’t like being told they are wrong, especially since they make choices based on facts. They take time to absorb information and do plenty of research before they fully believe in something. Once ISTJs make a decision about something it is based on facts and plenty of information. They need someone to present them with evidence before they actually will accept being proven wrong. They will accept the change if it is proven though, ISTJs just believe in being sure.

ESTJ

ESTJs don’t handle being told they are wrong, and would much rather figure things out themselves. They spend a lot of time doing research and developing their beliefs. ESTJs follow proven methods and facts, which is why they become frustrated by someone trying to prove them wrong. ESTJs will accept it from someone they trust and rely on, and will take the information much better coming from them.

ISFJ

ISFJs can definitely handle finding out that they were wrong, as long as it is presented in a kind manner. They don’t enjoy having someone act judgmental towards them, and won’t handle being told they are wrong if it is done in this way. ISFJs will accept that they are wrong if the person telling them is someone they actually trust and rely on for things.

ESFJ

ESFJs can definitely handle being wrong, as long their loved ones deliver it in a gentle manner. They don’t like someone trying to shame them for making a mistake and dislike feeling embarrassed that way. They would much rather someone calmly inform them, without being harsh or cruel about it. ESFJs can become firm in their beliefs and don’t enjoy when their core morals are being challenged by someone. They will only accept that they are wrong when it comes to more practical information that can actually be proven.

 

ISTP

ISTPs definitely don’t take being told they are wrong lightly, and require plenty of facts to back this up. They can be rather competitive, and have developed their beliefs over time. They won’t simply accept someone insisting they are wrong about something, and will likely engage in a serious debate with that person. ISTPs know their facts and can remember a lot of information at once, which often leads to them proving others wrong.

ESTP

ESTPs aren’t great at accepting when they are wrong about something, and can often be very argumentative. They will argue their point until someone presents them with solid evidence to the contrary. It can be difficult to prove the ESTP wrong, since they collect a lot of data over time and are skilled at recalling this information when they need it. Even when they are wrong they can often find ways to argue their point, unless someone has evidence in their hands.

ISFP

ISFPs can accept when they are wrong about something most of the time, and don’t expect to be perfect. Where they struggle is when someone is trying to challenge their morals or core beliefs, and this will likely lead to a frustrated and upset ISFP. They don’t mind someone telling them their information about something is incorrect, but that is entirely different than challenging their morals and ideals.

ESFP

ESFPs can be a bit combative when they are told they are wrong about their beliefs. When the ESFP believes in something they don’t want someone trying to prove them wrong. Where ESFPs can accept being incorrect is when it comes to more practical things, as long as they aren’t emotionally attached to this information. ESFPs will listen to the people they trust and can be convinced of something if they are presented with facts.
