What Each Personality Type Thinks of Physical Appearance

Physical appearance can be a sensitive subject, especially since most people do not want to admit its importance to them. Although it is not the most vital aspect of an individual, it is one part. Here is how each personality type feels about their own physical appearance, as well as the appearance of others.

 

INFJ

Their Own Appearance

INFJs can often fluctuate when it comes to their desire to maintain their personal appearance. They are either complete perfectionists, or they go through stages of not caring at all. The INFJ who is focusing more on being a perfectionist, will want to take the time to make sure they are perfectly groomed. They will do their nails, hair and possibly even makeup- all in an effort to ensure that they look put together perfectly. This is often for themselves, and helps them to feel more comfortable and confident. INFJs often put effort in to their appearance, depending on how they feel that day. If they aren’t feeling great about themselves, it might be a struggle to get ready for the day. It can be an endless loop, and because of this they might be less concerned with their physical appearance. When an INFJ does take time to look good, it isn’t for shallow reasons- they simply want to take time to portray the right image.

The Appearance of Others

INFJs do notice certain details about someone’s appearance, and will pay close attention. They rarely judge someone because of imperfections, and are much more interested in the heart and intentions of an individual. INFJs crave deep connections, and because of this they won’t become hung up on shallow details. They do notice beauty in the world around them, and will be put off by poor hygiene- but this doesn’t mean that the INFJ will refuse to help someone because of their physical appearance. They often become more attracted to someone, based on who they are as a person. INFJs enjoy beauty, but are often capable of seeing it in the strangest of places.

ENFJ

Their Own Appearance

ENFJs usually take a lot of pride in their appearance- and might even be perfectionists in this way. They want to be sure that they are putting themselves out there in the right way. ENFJs realize that people will treat them differently depending on how their appearance is- because of this they understand that it is important to look their best. They want to be able to navigate the world around them and be successful, and sometimes that requires a little extra effort. ENFJs also enjoy feeling good about themselves, and often this translates into how much time they spend getting ready.

The Appearance of Others

ENFJs will notice the appearance of other people, and actually enjoy the beauty in the world around them. They are often capable of finding beauty in even the oddest of places though, and might be attracted to things that other people are not. ENFJs will not be cruel to someone who does not keep up with their appearance, and dislike looking down on others because of this. They simply take notice of even the slightest change in appearance, but this often comes from a place of caring and consideration.

INFP

Their Own Appearance

INFPs don’t place a high importance on physical appearance, but that doesn’t mean they will neglect this part of themselves. They simply do not adhere to styles that other people deem appropriate, and would prefer to express their own personal style. INFPs want to feel comfortable and confident in their appearance, but that doesn’t mean they are obsessed with looking perfect. They are usually focused on major things, like proper hygiene and not appearing too “frumpy”. They certainly won’t spend hours getting ready, unless the INFP is hoping to catch the attention of someone special. They might invest a little more energy in their appearance if they are attempting to attract someone that they have feelings for.

The Appearance of Others

INFPs don’t usually care much about the physical appearance of others. They have a knack for finding beauty in everyone, even in the smallest of ways. They enjoy being around people who they can connect with on a deeper level, and often this has nothing to do with physical appearance. They might find themselves very attracted to someone’s appearance at first, but if they are not kind of heart, the INFP will no longer be interested in them.

ENFP

Their Own Appearance

ENFPs may not be obsessed with their physical appearance, but they often take time to make themselves look nice. They often have their own sense of style, and might even be trendsetters in this way. ENFPs are naturally charming individuals, and they enjoy being well received by others. They will often keep their hygiene in absolute top shape, and enjoy feeling confident about themselves. ENFPs will not obsessed over what other people think of them, and will likely spend time looking good for their own enjoyment. ENFPs don’t NEED to look good, but they do like to make themselves look nice.

The Appearance of Others

ENFPs will often notice aesthetics, and prefer to be around people who have good hygiene. They find themselves initially drawn to people that they find physically appealing, but will fall for someone who sparks their soul. ENFPs also find certain quirky characteristics attractive in people, and enjoy people who are confident in their own skin. They do not find physical appearance to be nearly as important as personality or compassion- but they enjoy someone who takes pride in themselves and how they look.

 

INTJ

Their Own Appearance

INTJs often take pride in the way they look, and find it important to look presentable. INTJs have their own sense of style, and this often works out nicely for them. They tend to be perfectionists, and might not feel 100% confident in their physical appearance- but they won’t allow themselves to obsess over the details that they cannot change. INTJs definitely find intelligence and capabilities more important than appearance, but they believe in being their absolute best selves. Because of their desire to constantly grow and develop, INTJs will often take time to make themselves look nice when they can.

The Appearance of Others

INTJs find the appearance of others important, especially for someone they are interested in dating. They don’t find appearance nearly as important as mental capacity, or generally intriguing personality traits. INTJs want someone who takes pride in themselves, and this includes taking time to make themselves look nice. They don’t expect someone to look perfect all of the time, but they do enjoy someone who knows how to clean up nicely when they go out- or who takes time to look professional at work. INTJs understand the important of appearance, and although it is not a deal breaker, they do enjoy connecting with people who respect themselves enough to spend time looking nice. INTJs might find themselves attracted to different physical qualities than most people, but they do find this attraction very important.

ENTJ

Their Own Appearance

ENTJs enjoy looking nice, and will often take pride in their physical appearance. They might have a unique sense of style, but they often refine it into something more appropriate.

They enjoy people who are confident in themselves, and who take pride in their appearance. ENTJs don’t mind if someone has a style that is completely different than their own, and might even find that endearing.

INTP

Their Own Appearance

INTPs might not find appearance to be of vital importance, but they do not want to be seen as a slob. They might spend some days completely engrossed in their own thoughts, and won’t expend any energy on their appearance. Other days the INTP might find themselves focusing on how they dress or style their hair. INTPs often have a unique sense of style, but might actually be trendsetters in many ways.

ENTPs have a natural charm, and their sometimes disheveled appearance is just another part of that. It might appear like the ENTP doesn’t try, but that is often intentional. ENTPs will often take a little extra time to look nice if they are attempting to attract someone they are romantically interested in.

The Appearance of Others

ENTPs don’t place too much important on the appearance of others, and might even find themselves close friends with some rather slob-like people. ENTPs won’t find themselves attracted to someone with poor hygiene, but they don’t require that their romantic partner keep their appearance perfect at all times. They are more attracted to someone with an active mind, and an intriguing way of thinking. They might find themselves attracted to physical qualities that are not stereotypically beautiful- since ENTPs have their own unique interests and desires.

The Appearance of Others
