Why People Are Intimidated By You Based on Your Personality Type

Has anyone ever told you they find you intimidating or difficult to approach? Do your friends often remark about how “you’re nothing like they thought you’d be”? Or have you ever wondered what kind of first impression you have on people? Here’s why people might be intimidated by you, according to your MBTI personality type.

We also made a video on what others like about you based on your MBTI personality type: https://youtu.be/DXlEoS6GkPI

DISCLAIMER: The MBTI is a personality inventory designed to roughly identify a person’s personality type, split into 16 categories. As such, it may be prone to not quite hitting the mark for everyone: so take it as a list of rough tendencies rather than strict classifications. This video’s primary intention is for providing entertainment and light-hearted content.
