MBTI has taken over Blood Type as the defining personality indicator in the Kpop world in the past few years. It has gotten to the point that you will find it mentioned on every Kpop idol’s profile alongside their zodiac, height, full name and other details. Idols have also been putting out content where they take the MBTI test, discuss the type’s traits with their group members, or get put through surprise tests by their video production crew to see if they fit their type or not.
Till date everyone from Seventeen

According to Wikipedia, MBTI or Myers–Briggs Type Indicator is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The test attempts to assign four categories: introversion or extraversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, judging or perceiving. One letter from each category is taken to produce a four-letter test result, such as "INTJ" or "ESFP". There are a total of 16 MBTI types.
