6 Most Loyal Myers Briggs Personality Types Who Won't Have A One-Night Stand

When you dive into the online dating pool, you never know who (or what dating preferences) you may come across. At first glance, it can be tough to see who has good intentions and what each potential match is looking for.

These days, online dating apps like Tinder, Grindr, and Bumble offer forums for users to search for either “meaningful connection” or a hookup, depending on their personal preference. And what this preference is might depend on the user’s Myers Briggs personality type.

The 16 Myers-Briggs Personality Types all differ in various ways, but a deeper analysis can show which of the types are more prone to hooking up on a whim versus which ones are more loyal to one person.

The Myers-Briggs Personality Test assesses four qualities of one’s personality: Introversion vs. Extroversion, Sensing vs. Intuition, Thinking vs. Feeling, and Judging vs. Perceiving. All four of these traits form a complete picture of someone’s personality. Each of the Myers-Briggs Personality Types has their own distinct qualities associated with them. Some have a propensity to get upset easily, while others know how to keep calm under intense pressure. Some are natural-born leaders, while others feel lost when they have to lead. Some are like an open book, while others prefer to keep their thoughts and feelings to themselves.

When it comes to dating behaviors, considering each of the Myers-Briggs Personality Types shows a clear trend. Though some of the personality types have a propensity to make rash decisions in their interpersonal relationships, others are loyal and devoted to those they are close with. And while those risk-takers would have no problem with promiscuity, the personality types who are the most loyal seem most likely to stay away from hooking up with others without forming a meaningful connection with their partner first.

Is your personality type (or your partner’s) on this list? Read on to find out!

1. ISTJ

When it comes to steering clear of hookups, ISTJs have a lot of reasons to do so. They see dependability and loyalty as important qualities to be successful in any area of their life. They also have a fondness for tradition, and they love to keep everything neatly organized. Finally, they have a unique ability to avoid getting sidetracked by distractions.

It’s much more likely that ISTJs would stick with one partner for the long haul rather than veering off course by seeking out an unpredictable series of hookups.

2. ISFJ

ISFJs also like to keep things running orderly and smoothly; getting entangled in a web of potential lovers doesn’t seem like something they’d do willingly. They value commitment and responsibility in all aspects of their life, especially in their relationships with close others. Staying faithful to one partner, or remaining celibate until they find the right one, seem like courses of action that ISFJs can handle.

3. ISFP

ISFPs have a deep sense of commitment to the people they surround themselves with, and they have a strong moral compass. Both of these qualities make hooking up seem like something they won’t enjoy doing. In addition, they prefer to have their own space, so constant close connection and intimacy with others isn’t something they’ll be seeking out.

INFPs behaviors, in all aspects of their lives, are driven by their own values and belief system. Though this fact alone doesn’t necessarily mean that they won’t want to have hookups, one of their values tends to be loyalty to close others, and this would keep them from hooking up with random people from dating apps.

5. ESFJ

ESFJs strive to foster strong connections with others in all parts of their lives, so quickly finding someone to hook up with wouldn’t be easy for them. Instead, they’d prefer to get to know their partner well over time and hopefully develop a meaningful relationship. And once they feel close enough to their partner, they will remain fiercely loyal to them.

6. ENFJ

For ENFJs, loyalty is important and necessary for both parties in any interpersonal relationship. Hooking up quickly with multiple partners would be difficult for them, as they feel it takes time to build up a strong, loyal relationship with someone. Instead, they’ll use their emotional intuition to develop understanding and closeness with their partner.
