Myers-Briggs has a large following and so does astrology, which has been around forever.

But have you ever wondered if there is a Myers-Briggs and zodiac correlation when it comes to your unique personality traits?

As a longtime believer in astrology, I was excited when I learned about the MBTI. Anything that can reveal the deeper aspects of a person’s psyche or even the outer layer of their personality is fascinating.

So, when I started to read about the different personality types, I was astounded to find many similarities between the zodiac signs and the Myers-Briggs.

What’s more fascinating is the fact that many people of each zodiac sign have consistently, at least in my experience, fallen under particular Myers-Briggs types.

For instance, I have noticed many Pisces individuals tend to be either INFP or INFJ, and those born under Sagittarius tend to have strong ENs.

Of course, our Moon signs significantly affect our personalities. Yet, our Sun signs seem to have a stronger say in how introverted or extroverted we are, and also how we approach life.

Let’s find out which Myers-Briggs personality is most like your zodiac sign.

Your zodiac sign's Myers-Briggs personality type

Aries (March 21 - April 19): ESTP

Aries, you are confident, independent, and passionate. You love taking charge and are extremely spontaneous to the point of being impulsive!

Your personality most closely matches the ESTP type.

ESTPs thrive in the here and now and are very action-oriented. In fact, they love doing things and learning something new by getting hands-on experiences.

Aries and ESTPs both demand immediate results.

Taurus, your best traits are reliability, patience, and practicality. That is why you are most likely to be an ISTJ, who earns success by being extremely dependable and thorough.

Like you, ISTJs are very pragmatic and responsible. They like to do steady work, without any interruptions.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): ESFP

You are known for your excellent communication skills, Gemini. So it won’t be surprising to discover you are an ESFP according to Myers-Briggs.

ESFPs also possess the gift of gab and are extremely outgoing. They are lovers of life and enjoy bringing fun to somber institutions, such as the workplace.

Both Geminis and ESFPs are adaptable, and do well with new people and in unfamiliar environments.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): INFJ

You are emotional, nurturing, and deeply intuitive. But Cancer is a Cardinal sign, which gives you certain leadership qualities.

INFJs seem to come closest to your personality type.

Like Cancer, INFJs want to connect with others and constantly seek meaning in life. INFJs seek to understand what motivates others and can be very insightful regarding such matters.

The judging aspect makes the INFJs more organized, which, you know you are, Cancer.

Like the sign Leo, the ENFP personality type makes one warm-hearted and imaginative. ENFPs are very confident in social situations and thrive when they are admired by those around them.

Both Leos and ENFPs can be very spontaneous and readily give their appreciation to those who they believe deserve it.

Both Virgos and ESTJs can be very logical.

Libras are all about cooperation and harmony. And ESFJs have similar traits.

ESFJs are sociable and warmhearted, just like you, Libra. They just want to be appreciated for what they bring to the table. Libras are similar in that they hate to be taken advantage of and love being appreciated.

Both tend to notice others’ needs and strive to fulfill them.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): INFJ

Scorpios are the most mysterious and hard-to-understand sign. It doesn’t help that Scorpios are so secretive.

INFJs tend to fall under that category sometimes. INFJs have always been thought of as the hardest type to understand. It’s apparently one of the rarest personality types.

But everyone who knows an INFJ will agree that they are extremely deep and perceptive, traits that define Scorpios.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): ENFJ

Sagittarius is fun-loving and adventurous. They make great teachers and coaches because they have the ability to motivate others.

It makes sense that Sagittarians are most likely to be ENFJs, because both are thought to be responsive and highly attuned to the motivations of others. Both tend to sensationalize and provide inspiring leadership.

Sagittarius are also sociable, just like ENFJs.
