While some of these words are highly unusual, they are all fun and a bit quirky. So just for fun here is the unusual or funny word that reminds us of each personality type.
Collywobbles refers to a sick or uneasy feeling in your stomach, which reminds us of the INFJ because of their strong sense of intuition. Sometimes when something is off or needs to be fixed, it lends to that knot in your stomach. This is something INFJs often experience when their intuition is telling them something isn’t quite right. So the word collywobbles isn’t that far off from matching the INFJ and their ability to sense when something is off in their worlds.

Because of their desire to be perfect, the ENFJ can certainly fit the unusual description of being a bit of a fusspot.

Most INFPs find themselves in love with being able to read and immerse themselves in these others worlds. Sometimes they just enjoy researching or reading books that help them learn about different topics. Regardless of what they are reading, abibliophobia definitely reminds us of the INFP.

INTPs do have a rather cynical side which pushes them towards having doubts about whether or not things will turn out in a more positive direction.

They focus on the past and are more drawn to things they are comforted by. ISTJs don’t like being forced into the future, and can be annoyed with people who are obsessed with being hip or trendy. Too much change isn’t comfortable for the ISTJ, so they can be a bit of a fuddy-duddy sometimes.
Finagle means to work around or figure out a way to get something done a certain way. ESTJs are often great at finagling their way into most things, and work hard to get what they want.
