Amid the “Woo Young-woo Syndrome”, some people raised discussions to analyze the MBTI of the character Woo Young-woo.
The popularity of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” is skyrocketing to the point that there is no one who doesn’t know Woo Young-woo. Many people are now asking “Did you see ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’ yesterday?” as their morning greeting and doing the “Woo Young-woo greeting” instead of saying “Goodbye”. “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” is not only discussed in daily conversations but also in online community hot topics.
On July 21st, a number of articles analyzing the MBTI of Woo Young-woo, the main character of ENA’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” were posted on online communities. Some netizens introduced their MBTI results and added, “What is Woo Young-woo’s MBTI?”.
According to the article posted on instiz, many people speculated, “She’s J no matter what”, “She seems to be either ISTJ or INTJ”, “First, S is excluded”, “She’s definitely N”, “INTP or INTJ”, etc.
They continued to analyze Woo Young-woo’s MBTI based on evidence, saying “She has an extraordinary imagination (INTJ)”, “She comes up with many brilliant ideas and also has many amazing impromptu ideas (INTP)”, “She’s working hard because that’s her job but I think she looks quite random and clumsy (INTP)”, “She has her own routine, then she’s not (J), a person who is good at planning (INTP)”, etc.
According to netizens’ opinions, many predicted that Woo Young-woo would be an INTP. A person with an INTP personality type is introverted (I), intuitive (N), thinking (T), and prospecting (P).
According to 16 Personalities, an online site that provides free MBTI tests, INTP people are quiet and always curious about intellectual things, so they tend to solve problems with logic and analysis. They don’t start a conversation first but will talk a lot in the areas that they’re interested in. Another characteristic of INTP is that they enjoy discussing and sharing ideas. They understand situations quickly and intuitively.
Those with INTP, who tends to effectively demonstrate their capabilities through improvisational activities rather than carrying out a given plan, are different from people with J (Judging) who thoroughly make plans for what they do and follow them. INTP people reject unreasonable rules and internal systems but tend to follow social principles.
When INTPs fall in love, they are devoted. However, they rarely enjoy social encounters or activities because they are not really interested in human relationships and prefer to play alone.
Woo Young-woo’s MBTI is also listed as INTP on an overseas site that analyzes and provides information about the personality types of celebrities as well as characters in dramas and movies.
The PDB community concluded this result after collecting 286 opinions through the personality database. The site also revealed MBTI speculations for other characters in the drama: Woo Young-woo’s friend Dong Geu-ra-mi (ENTP), Lee Joon-ho (ENFJ), lawyer Jung Myung-seok (ISTJ), lawyer Kwon Min-woo (ESTJ), and lawyer Choi Soo-yeon (ESFJ).
In fact, actress Park Eun-bin, who plays Woo Young-woo, is known to be an INFP.
