How Do Rumors Affect You, Based on Your Personality Type

Some people struggle when it comes to hearing rumors spread about them, while others seem to be great at letting it slide. It’s never a fun experience to know someone is spreading rumors, but some can handle and cope with this better than others. Here is how rumors affects you, based on your personality type.

If it is something that could damage their reputation or cause their loved ones to doubt them, the ENFP will become upset. If the rumors being spread don’t upset them or damage their reputation than they don’t really mind the attention. ENFPs can become comfortable with rumors if they give them a sense of popularity, especially when they are younger.



INTJs usually don’t like getting involved in pointless drama, but they understand that rumors can become damaging to their reputation.

ENTPs are often used to having rumors spread about them and so they try their best to ignore them. They don’t like letting themselves become upset or caught up in these foolish rumors, and so they try to just move one. They understand that some rumors can be damaging and so they simply do their best to prove that they are untrue.

If they notice that the rumors are going to affect their lives and their careers, then they will do their best to prevent this from happening. They will use facts and truth to make it know to everyone what is truly happening, in hopes of shutting these rumors down.


ESTJs don’t want drama or rumors to mess with their lives or careers and so this can be upsetting for them. When someone spreads rumors which could be damaging the ESTJ will do their best to make the truth known. They want to address these rumors and work on solving the problem. If they are just silly rumors then it won’t upset the ESTJ, and they’ll simply laugh them off.


ISFJs care about their reputation and want to avoid letting any rumors spread. Rumors can harm their relationships and even their careers and for the ISFJ this is deeply troubling.

ISTPs are often good at letting go of things like drama and rumors. They don’t want to let these things get to them and so they try not to really focus on it. If someone tries to spread damaging rumors the ISTP will do their best to make the truth known. They don’t like letting themselves become emotionally bothered by these things and want to learn to let go.


ESTPs don’t like letting rumors get to them, but they can be bothered by them sometimes. They don’t want people to know that they are upset and so sometimes they put on a front. ESTPs actually do care how others see them, especially their loved ones. They might pass these rumors off as amusing but it can be rather hurtful for them.


ISFPs try not to let things bother them, especially when it comes to rumors. They want to be able to move on from these things and focus on what matters. While they do their best to avoid getting hurt by rumors, they are sensitive souls and so these things can be troubling. The most important thing for the ISFP is knowing that their loved ones don’t believe the rumors and will still stand by them.


ESFPs are often viewed as fun and lighthearted people and so they try their best not to get caught up in rumors being spread about them. While they try not to let these things bother them, ESFPs actually do care about what people think. I’d rumors are being it can be damaging for the ESFP and leave them feeling afraid of how people will see them.
