Here are some tips for each of the Myers Briggs personality types to help you be less lazy:

What is the laziest MBTI Personality Type?

It’s important to note that no MBTI personality type is inherently lazy. However, individuals of different types may struggle with motivation in different areas. For example, an ESTJ may show laziness when it comes to considering their own needs and exploring their own inner world of their thoughts and feelings and reflecting on their own actions. On the other hand, INFPs might be lazy in the sense that they are less interested in proactive, practical pursuits. It’s crucial to focus on developing our strengths and finding motivation in areas that align with our values and purpose to combat laziness.

You might be differently motivated and that’s okay. Discover your own motivation and take my MBTI Personality Test.

    How can infp be motivated to do something that they don’t like?

  • Wyatt says:

    I think this is bunk, INFPs aren’t inheritantly lazy, they just march to their own drum and the reason some people assume they are lazy is because they aren’t as easily controlled to the purposes of others!

  • Hello says:

    This is the stupidest shit I have ever read.

  • Karen says:

    INFP-T here…..
    I am very lazy when it comes to doing something I “don’t want to do”. I don’t want to….and you can’t make me….and you can’t even make me want to…..that’s it in a nutshell.
    But, if is something I want to do & enjoy doing & would do even if i wasn’t paid to do it…..full speed ahead…..clocks & time don’t matter. Just the way I feel when doing it is the motivator.

  • Stephanie says:

    @Hello
    Why are you being so mean? He’s only trying to help. Instead of getting offended, why don’t you use a practical approach to learning this information by applying it in your daily life to get better at certain areas in your life that you could improve in? That is why he wrote it after all. And if you’re so angry about it, which is in my opinion, a waste of your emotions, there is something called “constructive criticism” if you have a problem with it, state the issue while excluding the insults. No one will want to listen to an insulting person.

  • Amber says:

    My sister’s an INTP and I agree with the reason why people can say that she’s lazy. Almost all of her school projects were summited late and she’d reason out that ‘quality over time’ and she’d always get the highest score.

    Meanwhile me, ENFP also agree with what’s on mine haha
