The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality test was created by American mother and daughter Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers largely during World War II, and despite its drawing inspiration from the work of Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, the accuracy and utility of MBTI has been long criticized. Yet regardless of all of that, South Korea has come to love MBTI in recent years, and in turn, fans love to learn what the MBTI is of all of their favorite idols. SM Entertainment boy group RIIZE (라이즈) made a hot debut in 2023, so to get to know their individual personalities better, here is the MBTI for RIIZE members Shotaro, Eunseok, Sungchan, Wonbin, Seunghan, Sohee, and Anton.
RIIZE MBTI for All Members
- Shotaro has an MBTI of ESFP.
- Eunseok has an MBTI of ISTP.
- Sungchan has an MBTI of ESTP.
- Wonbin has an MBTI of ISTJ.
- Seunghan has an MBTI of INFP.
- Sohee has an MBTI of INTP or ISTP.
- Anton has an MBTI of INTP.
All of this information, save for the entry on Sohee, comes self-reported directly from the members themselves in a Melon profile published on August 21, 2023. At that time, Sohee did not actually know his MBTI. He later clarified it was INTP in an episode of M Countdown aired September 14, 2023, but then in WE RIIZE episode 5, aired October 11, 2023, the entire episode was dedicated to his members quizzing Sohee and deciding themselves what his MBTI was. They determined it to be ISTP, but it is hard to know how rigorous this quizzing truly was. Regardless, since some people’s MBTI is known to change with time (or even semi-regularly), this space is being updated to address that nuance as necessary.
Indeed, in the RIIZE Melon profile, Wonbin cautions that he does not actually believe in MBTI! Likewise, since Sohee did not even initially know his MBTI, it would suggest he is not terribly interested in the personality test. Frankly, this might be a healthy attitude. But it’s still a fun thing to discuss in an unserious way. Speaking of which, the group seems to have a healthy mix of personality types, though it’s lacking for “J,” which stands for “judging.” The group definitely leans toward being introverted though, with only two “E” members, Shotaro and Sungchan.
That’s all there is to know about what RIIZE members’ MBTI are at this time, but fans will quickly learn more about Shotaro, Eunseok, Sungchan, Wonbin, Seunghan, Sohee, and Anton and their personalities as the group grows and produces lots of content!
