Descriptive MBTI Personality Acronyms
By John Rieping | Written 31 January 2013
Previously I shared "popular" acrostic descriptions of the Myers-Briggs personality types written by others here on my personal website. But reading them afresh I decided to create imperfect acronyms entirely of my own that I felt better reflected each personality.

ISFP - Intense sensory-feeling possibilities; I'm sincerely finding purpose; Interiorly sorting feelings & perceptions; Independent service feels pleasurable
INFJ - I navigate future jeopardies; Intricate nuances form jewels
INFP - Insipid normality frightens pathfinders; Imagination necessarily fuels possibilities; Ideals need faithful pursuit; Inwardly noisy, face peaceful
INTJ - Ideas need translation jockeys; Insight naturally trumps joiners; I never tint judgments; I'm not theatrical. Jealous?
INTP - Intelligence necessitates tolerance & precision; I need to ponder; Intuition notices theoretical possibilities; Independently nixing terrible propositions

The above chart, created by Rich Evans of NASA's Glenn Research Center, charts the relative population of different Myers-Briggs personality types in the United States. The red line shows the percentage of women of each type, the blue line is for men, and the grey line is the overall percentage.
