Here’s How Each Personality Type Feels About Pop Culture
Some people are extremely interested in popular culture, while others find it to be exhausting. Here is how each personality type feels about popular culture.
INFJs have a tendency to be all or nothing when it comes to most things in life. INFJs will either be in love with pop culture, or absolutely despise it. Some INFJs truly enjoy the chance to dive into different stories and fun nerd culture. They will often be more drawn to things they can connect with, and enjoy the fantasy element to pop culture. INFJs will likely have a harsh opinion towards certain pop culture, and will dislike seeing how people become so obsessed with reality TV and things similar to it. They often enjoy storytelling, and things like reading, comic book and fiction shows and movie. They things can help the INFJ drift into another reality, and they often enjoy sharing this with their loved ones.
ENFJs are often connected to many things in the world around them, and this includes pop culture. They often enjoy being able to connect with loved ones via different television shows and movies. ENFJs often see this as a way to remain connected to people, and dislike feeling like they are being left out. They will often take time to watch the shows and movies that their loved ones enjoy, and enjoy staying up to date. ENFJs might dislike certain elements of pop culture, especially the more shallow and obnoxious aspects.
INFPs rarely pay much attention to pop culture, and dislike feeling like people are telling them what to enjoy. INFPs might like certain elements to pop culture, like music and different bands. They simply don’t care what people are hyped up about, and want to focus on their own interests. If the INFP likes something that is “outdated” they won’t feel a need to hide this from others. They enjoy being themselves, and will only show interest in pop culture if it is something they personally enjoy.
ENFPs are often the type of people who dance to the beat of their own drum. They will occasionally enjoy certain pop culture elements, but won’t do this just because people think they should. ENFPs enjoy being themselves, and because of this they often become trendsetters. They will not pretend to like something just because other people tell them to, and will likely rebel against this. It takes a lot to hold an ENFPs interest, since they can become bored rather easily by most things and will jump onto something new.
INTJs like researching and understanding their surroundings, and this often includes pop culture. They will often enjoy researching the trends and seeing how they tie into psychology and sociology. INTJs will often see pop culture as a tool to understanding people better, and will enjoy paying attention to those trends. They might enjoy certain pop culture trends themselves, but this is not dictated by what other people enjoy. INTJs are often the people who find something they enjoy, and watch as other people follow. They do not want to be followers, and are naturally more inclined to enjoy their own style which sets them apart from others.
ENTJs often enjoy using pop culture as a way to understand and connect with people. They often realize that following certain trends can keep them connected with the right people in life. They dislike being left unaware and because of this the ENTJ will often be knowledgeable about many different elements of pop culture. They do not pretend to like everything tied to pop culture though, and will be comfortable letting people know their opinions. They simply enjoy knowing the details of what is going on around them, and because of this they will stay up to date with pop culture.
INTPs love researching everything around them, and this includes pop culture. They will often be extremely aware of the more popular, TV shows, movies, music, memes and even sports. INTPs simply enjoy being aware, and dislike feeling like someone else can make them seem foolish. INTPs will often research pop culture and attempt to connect it with different elements of psychology and sociology. INTPs are usually excellent at observing trends, and will often know what is going to become popular before it even does. This ability can often cause INTPs to become interested in topics that aren’t even known yet, causing them to seem odd. In most situations this is because the INTP is actually ahead of their time and people don’t realize this.
ENTPs will often be aware of pop culture, and don’t mind paying attention to trends. They will enjoy being up to date on popular culture, but won’t pretend to like something just because other people do. ENTPs often bounce around from one things to the next, and can become bored rather easily. This can cause the ENTP to discover new things, before they even become popular. This ability to realize trends, sets the ENTP apart from many other types. By the time many things become popular though, the ENTP has already moved onto something new.
