Here’s How Each Personality Type Feels About Conspiracy Theories
While some people find conspiracy theories to be foolish, others can get completely caught up in the possibilities. Here is how each personality type feels about a good old fashioned conspiracy theory.
INFJs are level-headed and intelligent people, but they do enjoy exploring new ideas. While they aren’t the types to become obsessed with unusual conspiracy theories, they do have strong intuitions. When the INFJ is drawn to an idea that seems odd to others, it is often because they have a reason to be. It is not unusual for the INFJ to be seen as odd for believing in something, and to lack receiving credit when their beliefs turn out to be proven true.
ENFJs usually don’t get caught up in conspiracy theories, unless a loved ones seems completely enamored by it. If someone they love believes in something they might find themselves at least exploring the possibility. ENFJs are reasonable and focused people, and prefer to look at the evidence before making decisions. While they enjoy being presented with facts, ENFJs also have strong intuitions which can seem a bit odd to others. Not everyone understands the intuition of the ENFJ, but it comes from actual evidence collected over time.
INFPs can definitely get caught up in a good conspiracy theory, especially since they are so open minded. They enjoy being able to explore new ideas, even when it seems far-fetched to some. INFPs aren’t afraid of diving into something a little strange, and enjoy being able to expand their minds. They are good at diving into something and considering all of the possible outcomes. INFPs also have strong intuitive abilities, which make it even more possible for them to consider the options around them.
ENFPs are curious and open-minded people, who enjoy being able to stretch their imaginations. They do enjoy exploring the possibility of things that others might call conspiracy theories, even if they keep this to themselves. ENFPs might not always share their own conspiracy theories to others, since they are aware it might sound a bit odd. They will only share these ideas with people they feel most comfortable with, and who can appreciate their unique train of thoughts. ENFPs are imaginative people, who enjoy allowing their minds to explore the many possibilities around them.
INTJs are intuitive people, but they also believe in looking at the evidence in front of them. When the INTJ buys into what others would believe to be a conspiracy theory, it is because they have actually observed the evidence for a long period of time. INTJs will catalog the facts and combine that with their own powerful intuition in order to make an informed decision about something. They are smart enough to realize that certain things that appear unfathomable to some, are actually true. INTJs don’t accept the word of others as fact, and will be comfortable going against what people believe.
ENTJs don’t shun all conspiracy theories and realize some of them have merit to them. While ENTJs aren’t completely against exploring different possibilities, they would often rather focus on what is proven. ENTJs are all about efficiency and strive to get things done to the best of their ability. They prefer to focus on the things they can change, and will continue to work towards growth and improvement in their lives. Too many theories that are not going to lead anywhere, will seem a bit foolish to the ENTJ.
INTPs love a good conspiracy theory, since it allow them to really stretch their imaginations. They enjoy being able to explore new possibilities, even if in the end they feel they have debunked them completely. INTPs just want to keep an open mind and will always let themselves consider different options before coming to a conclusion. INTPs enjoy the idea of a conspiracy theory, because it allows them to explore somewhat uncharted territory. They aren’t afraid of venturing down a road that is unproven, and will allow their intuition to guide them.
ENTPs enjoy conspiracy theories very much, and relish the opportunity to explore something new. ENTPs don’t like just sitting in the same stagnant position, which is why exploring an unproven theory is actually exciting for them. The chance to dive into something completely unfathomable to others, and actually find some evidence towards it, is a challenge the ENTP treasures. Conspiracy theories can sometimes sweep them away, taking them down a surprising and somewhat imaginative path. ENTPs always come back to being realists in the end, but they enjoy the chance to explore the different possibilities.
While ISTJs don’t mind exploring the possibility of a few conspiracy theories, they often prefer to remain grounded. They are practical people who strive to get things done and be responsible. ISTJs might believe in some conspiracy theories if enough evidence is presented to them, but that doesn’t mean they will obsess over this. They would much rather focus on what they can control, and continue to work hard in order to provide for their family and build a positive future.
ESTJs aren’t often interested in focusing on conspiracy theories and prefer to maintain a grounded sense of reality. They want to focus on proven methods in order to get things done in an efficient manner. ESTJs are hardworking people who dislike become distracted by ideas that make no real difference to them. They can become irritated with people who obsess over theories, and want to find a way to bring them back to earth.
ISFJs are rarely interested in conspiracy theories, and often find them rather silly. They would much prefer to focus on realistic things, with proven methods and facts. ISFJs are much more interesting in tending to the needs of their loved ones, and ensuring a happy future for those around them. ISFJs are practical people who can easily become irritated with too many abstract ideas. They prefer things that are concrete and can be readily proven.
ESFJs aren’t usually interested in conspiracy theories, since they prefer to focus on what they can control. While they might believe a few of these theories, they won’t always feel at ease sharing that with others. ESFJs can certainly explore possibilities that surprise other people, and are open to things that seem unusual. They simply prefer to focus on the world around them, and try to find ways to provide for their loved ones and bring joy to their lives.
ISTPs definitely don’t mind exploring the possibility of some conspiracy theories, and enjoy the chance to expand their minds. While they might believe that some of them are possible, they don’t get too hung up on it for long. ISTPs prefer to focus on the present moment and live very much in the real world. They don’t join obsessing over things they cannot change, and prefer to let those things slide off their backs without much care.
ESTPs aren’t usually interested in conspiracy theories and can find some of them to be a bit ridiculous. They prefer to focus on facts and are very realistic and analytical people. ESTPs believe what is proven and don’t enjoy exploring different theories with little evidence to them. They are very much present in the moment, and live focused on the world around them.
ISFPs aren’t often hung up on conspiracy theories and prefer to focus on the present moment. While they are somewhat spontaneous people, ISFPs do believe in some ideas that seem out there to others. They just don’t want to become obsessed with these theories and prefer to let things go. ISFPs would rather focus on positive things, and enjoy being able to soak up the beauty around them.
While too many theoretical ideas can stress the ESFP out, they do believe in some conspiracy theories. Their minds can often wander off, causing them to get caught up in different ideas. If someone who appears smart enough presents the ESFP with a theory, they might find themselves exploring the possibility of its validity. They can be obsessive people when something gets under their skin, and might find themselves buying into some conspiracy theories.
