    Best and worst secret keepers

    Someone did a thread on the best liars and I was wondering, who is the best secret keeper and who is the worst secret keeper? I actually genuinely think that INFJ's are terrible secret keepers, especially if a secret is going to bring two people closer together. In fact, any of the NF's in my opinion. I think by default then, that ESTP's are the best secret keepers. Just because they are such social creatures there is no real need to go blabbing about someone else's secret which they asked you not to tell. Again, all ST's in my opinion, are good secret keepers. Simply because they are the least humanitarian therefore they are the least likely to imagine that telling someone's secret will force people to come together.

    That's intresting, because my ESTP friend is pretty much the Shadow Broker. He knows EVERYONE'S goings-on and isn't exactly shy about telling them to other people. he's pretty charismatic, so people confide in him often apparently.

    He has a huge information network >.<

    From experience I've found ISXJ's are the best secret keepers. No idea which type would be the worst, I tend not to stick around when people betray my (or someone else's) trust.

    My ENFJ friend is awful at keeping secrets.

    I had to learn the hard way that my good ESFP friend has no idea the difference between a secret and a topic to discuss with everyone she can. But I don't know how much that is her or her personality type. And on the other hand, I have always been told I am a good secret keeper (they say because I will usually forget the secret), and my best friends (INTP and INTJ) are also good secret keepers

    If I'm specifically told it's a secret, I've found it easy to keep a secret. However, if you don't specify, I'm under the impression that the information is public knowledge unless I can deduce it isn't myself. IRL, people share wayyyyy personal information with me and I'm pretty sure I'm not the person they should be sharing this with.

    I wouldn't deign to guess who is best at keeping secrets or who's worst. I suspect that is more down to individuals.

    I think it really depends on a variety of intermingling factors:

    and the nature of the secret itself.

    ESTJ's can be fiercely and stoically loyal in the face of secret-keeping (in my experience), but I do not think I'd go so far as to say they are the best.
    I'll go with:

    Worst? I vote ESFP's. (why is this not a poll?)

    Hey! Psss! Like... *looks around mischievously* don't tell anyone but like... *giggles* Marco totally has like a crush on James! But like... James says Marco is ugly. O' Mah GAWD~. Isn't that like so horrible~ *spasms*


    *sighs* joking aside, I can't speak for all INTPs but I'm pretty good at keeping secrets. I don't exactly have many friends so it's not like I have anyone to tell anyway *chuckles dryly*... I also think INFJs are pretty good at keeping secrets from my experience atleast (I see that not everyone experienced so but meh).

    The only type I know that's not so good at secret keeping are ExTPs. My sister is one and when we were children, she always told on me... I only have her as an example though. So I can't say anything about the other EXTPs.

    I'd imagine IxFJs to be pretty good secret keepers. ESFPs and ExTPs - not so much.
