So, I'm a lot less good at typing people than I'd like to be and I found myself curious about what type Mr. Beast is. For any not aware, he's a YouTuber. Go check him out and give him some love if you like what you see (I get he's not everyone's cup of tea though, because no one is, so no pressure). Anyway, I'd like to ask for some outside help, because I don't know what to think really. There's a TLDR at the end if you want, the rest is just me giving an explanation of what I think and why.


Why I disagree that he's a J-type:

I've checked the personality database, but they've labeled him as an ENFJ which doesn't seem right to me personally. I mean, sure ENFJs tend to be philanthropic and few fit that description better than Mr. ATM himself. Still though, he seems too spontaneous and in the moment to be a J-type (not that I think J types can't be in-the-moment or spontaneous).

That said, he does seem a bit in character when on camera to me personally (not that I'm hating on him. He seems super, super kind and like a very nice dude). So that might also be throwing me off. Maybe he only pretends to be spontaneous? I'm not really sure.

Why I disagree that he's an N-Type:

He also seems too rooted in reality, too focused on things to do or try rather than think up or theorize about, and too interested in physical challenges over the mental ones (obviously not 100% of the time). I concede that he might just be curious about what he and his friends are capable of or how people react to things and thus that makes it a mental thing, but it doesn't seem like that to me personally.

My thoughts on E vs. I:

He gives me introvert vibes for reasons I wish I could explain. He's always around friends, pulling crazy stunts, and just trying to make people happy and have a good time. That sounds like your stereotypical ESFP, but I still get introvert vibes. My Uncle and an Aunt of mine are both ESFPs and a friend of mine is as well. None of them are as soft-spoken or carry themselves quite like Mr. Beast does (not that he's SUPER soft-spoken, but he is more soft-spoken than the ESFPs in my life). But then again, I can't really defend this point strongly, so he might be an ESFP.

I feel like I can build a good case for him being a sensor and a perceiver, but I have a harder time defending why I think he's an introvert. He could be an ambivert I suppose, but I'm guessing that's pretty rare and I don't really know the first thing about true ambiverts and how they work, so I couldn't say.

The only sort of "evidence" (heavy air quotes) I have are his eyes. Introvert's irises/pupils tend to be slightly obscured by the top of their eyes whereas extroverts tend to be more obscured by the bottoms because of the way they tend to tilt their head. Tilting it back (more common for extroverts) causes the eyes to be partially obscured by the bottom and tiling it down (more common for introverts) causes the eyes to be partially obscured by the tops.

People move their heads a lot though and introverts sometimes do a thing called "distancing" where they lean back and tilt their head back so that their body mimics the mental distancing they're doing from the thing they don't like, disagree with, want to look at objectively, or feel very proud/satisfied with.

Mr. Beast's irises/pupils are often pretty obscured by the top part of his eyes and hardly by the bottom (an indication that his head is often tilted downwards). Of course, people do move their heads and a number of other factors might be contributing, but it seems like a pretty good sign.

The way he tilts his head is actually more interesting when you consider that he's fairly tall. It might actually be easier for him to look down at someone/something than to tilt his head down and look up. I know the rule is more of a guideline than a solid thing, but his height helps my case a little.

Also, in an old video from 4 years ago titled "The Dreaded Unanswerable Question, he said this:

"I know this might sound made up but, occasionally... occasionally, I go outside and... ya' know... interact with other humans and socialize a little bit."

That doesn't really sound like the mentality of the other ESFPs I know, but maybe you're an ESFP and would like to say otherwise? He could also just be making a joke about the stereotype that YouTubers don't go outside much. I know Seán McLoughlin (Jacksepticeye) has made that joke too and he's an extrovert. So again, that only holds up so well.


My thoughts on 7 vs. 4:

As far as enneagram goes, I feel like he must be either a 7 or a 4 if I'm right about him being an XSFP. His line of work and his channel show him doing things that could either be interpenetrated as seeking novelty, fun, and new and exciting experiences (7), or as him wanting to stand out, be different, define himself, and feel like he has a purpose (4). If you ask me, it's a bit of both. My thought is that, since ISFPs naturally tend to resemble some qualities of a 4 and ESFPs happen to resemble type 7s, that he's likely either an ISFP 7 or an ESFP 4.

TLDR;

I'm pretty sure Mr. Beast is an ISFP 7(unsure about the wing), or an ESFP 4(also unsure about the wing). He seems different to most ESFPs I've met though, so I think it's more likely that he's an ISFP 7 or an ambivert (which I don't know much about). So, if you're an ISFP (especially a 7), an ESFP (especially a 4), an ambivert, or someone who feels that they can speak to this, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

If you need reference, you can type "Mr. Beast" into the YouTube search bar, find the blue tiger icon, and have a peek at his channel. I'd link, but I don't think I can yet... sorry.

(If you're sensitive to swearing, stay away from his older videos as he used to swear quite a bit. Also, as much as I like and respect him, he seems like he might be putting on airs a little bit for the camera in my opinion. So please keep that in mind when forming opinions).

Thanks so much!
