Everyone loves to hear about their best qualities and let the bad stuff get swept under the rug. However, one of the gifts of cognitive theory and the MBTI is the insight it offers about our deficiencies and short comings. Being mindful and aware of our weaknesses makes it easier to hone in on and develop them. Here is a list of the worst traits of each of the briggs myers types.


  • May have difficulty leaving an unhealthy relationship
  • May be prone to struggle with insecurity
  • Strongly dislike having their space invaded
  • Needs praise and positive affirmation from others
  • When stressed, may be prone to emotional outbursts
  • Often reserved about expressing feelings and may be awkward and uncomfortable while doing so
  • Don’t give themselves enough credit when things go well and blame themselves entirely when things go wrong – often very hard on themselves
  • Intensely dislike conflict and criticism
  • If forced to deal with conflict, they are more focused on the way things makes them feel than with what is right and wrong – don’t care if they’re “wrong,” they simply do not want to feel badly
  • Can appear to be irrational and illogical, especially in conflict situations
  • Dislike having to deal with hard facts and logic – do not value and are ineffective at using impersonal, objective judgment (can be positive and negative)
  • In group situations, may have a “control” problem where they want to take over everything because group members’ standards often aren’t as high as theirs
