Top 100 Personality Quotes To Unleash Your True Self

Personality can be defined as how an individual defines, thinks, or behaves.

Personality can be judged by how the person reacts or behaves to an event in a given frame of time, based on the environment. Broadly, human personality has been divided into two types: introverts and extroverts.

Introverts are people who prefer personal peace rather than too much social interaction. However, extroverts are opposites to that of an introvert. Ambiverts are those who have both the traits of an introvert and an extrovert. If you like reading about human psychology, you will find this article interesting.

For The ENFP

“I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.”
– Anais Nin

For the ENTP

“Let’s think the unthinkable, let’s do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.”
– Douglas Adams

For the INFP

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”
– Robert Fulghum

For the INTP

“I like the scientific spirit – the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them: this is ultimately fine – it always keeps the way beyond open – always gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, a chance to try over again after a mistake – after a wrong guess.
– Walt Whitman

For the ENFJ

“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
– Anne Frank

For the ENTJ

“Failed plans should not be interpreted as a failed vision. Visions don’t change, they are only refined. Plans rarely stay the same, and are scrapped or adjusted as needed. Be stubborn about the vision, but flexible with your plan.”
– John C. Maxwell

For the INFJ

“Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking.”
– Leo Tolstoy

For the INTJ

“Always start at the end before you begin.”
– Robert Kiyosaki

For the ESFP

“We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets, to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea and be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew…Human beings are actually created for the transcendent, for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful…and all of us are given the task of trying to make this world a little more hospitable to these beautiful things.”
– Desmond Tutu

For the ESTP

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.
– Theodore Roosevelt

For the ISFP

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
– Henry David Thoreau

For the ISTP

“It is necessary to look at the results of observation objectively, because you, the experimenter, might like one result better than another.”
– Richard. P. Feynman

For the ESFJ

– Maya Angelou

For the ESTJ

“Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.”

– George Washington Carver

– Thomas A. Edison

Friendship happens by accident, often because a man is already infatuated with some other woman and longs to talk about her.
