One Myers-Briggs® Celebrity ISFP Personality Type is “The King of Pop,” Michael Jackson.

By examining his life and career, we can see how he personifies the qualities of the Myers-Briggs test ISFP Personality Type.

ISFP Personality Types are known for their Feeling preference. They are kind and considerate while coming off as very sensitive and gentle to onlookers. The ISFP Type finds it important to contribute to people’s well being and bliss. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Michael Jackson was polarizing during his lifetime, but there is no denying that millions loved him. It is no coincidence that the Guinness World Records lists him as the most successful entertainer of all time. His legions of fans led to over 400 million records sold, and his music talent led him to win hundreds of awards, including 13 Grammy Awards and 26 American Music Awards. Those close to him spoke of him as an extremely kind and shy person. Accounts from his children paint the picture of an extremely involved and caring father. He spent a vast portion of his fortune on helping and supporting those close to him, as well as on his numerous philanthropic ventures.

ISFP Personality Types also have a Sensing preference and are aware of the realities of the present, including those of the people and the world around them. The ISFP Type’s ability to pick up on and connect with the feelings and needs of others allows them to respond based on their well-defined values. Michael Jackson was able to pick up on the needs of others, but it did not always end well for him. His great affection and generosity toward children and children’s charities was both praised and criticized for its potential inappropriateness. Michael Jackson’s family also had a bad reputation for taking advantage of his financial generosity and general giving nature. Fighting and disagreements over his estate continue to this day. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

ISFP types also have a strong affinity for nature and the beauty of all living things. Michael Jackson custom built a grandiose residence/personal theme park named Neverland Ranch that he often used for charity tours. This park included within its 2800 acre lot, among other things, a fully operational zoo with animals ranging from elephants and monkeys to giraffes and reptiles, all in a beautiful plant-rich environment. Up until Neverland Ranch’s closure in 2008, the park represented a combined vision of Michael Jackson’s generosity and his appreciation of life and nature. (Myers, CPP. 1998)
