Match up your Myers-Briggs personality type with famous actors, writers and scientists.

Ever thought a celebrity reminded you of yourself? Websites like Mypersonality.com and Celebritytypes.com have gathered various famous people and sorted their personalities into Myers-Briggs personality test types, relying mostly on the time-tested method of totally guessing. Haven't taken the test yet? Take an unofficial version here to find out which one of the 16 types you are, and what all these letters mean.

Below, enjoy our take on the 16 personality types.

INTP (Engineer) / Albert Einstein

"Engineers" are interested in figuring out how things work. They're intelligent people who dive deeply into theories and ideas, and they're great conversationalists. German-born physicist Albert Einstein, an INTP, even helped found Hebrew University in Jerusalem, spreading intellectualism and photos of his tongue across the world.

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better," said Einstein.

Other famous engineers include Marie Curie, René Descartes and Tina Fey.

ENTP (Originator) / Weird Al Yankovic


"Originators" are always thinking of new ideas. They're ardently nonconformist and like coming up with creative ways of doing things, rather than sticking to tradition.

"I'm still a geek on the inside, that's the important thing," said American songwriter Weird Al Yankovic, who hasn't yet realized that he's also a geek on the outside.

Other famous originators include Leonardo da Vinci, Socrates, Amy Poehler, Sacha Baron Cohen and Robert Downey Jr.

ESTJ (Overseer) / Natalie Portman

These hard workers tend to be very practical and responsible. They trust facts and experiences more than ideas, and they're good at being in charge.

This certainly describes Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman, who has been a leader both on screen and off, where she has advocated for various charities and given advice to graduating college students. Portman said that playing leaders taught her about "putting yourself forward, showing your intention, showing your strength."

Other famous "overseers" include Martha Stewart, Dr. Phil, Lucy Liu, Emma Watson, Alec Baldwin – all of whom would make for a rock-solid "Celebrity Apprentice" team.

ESFJ (Supporter) / Mary Tyler Moore


"Supporters" are social butterflies who strongly value relationships. They care for others in their social circles, and they love being loved.

"I've had the fame and the joy of getting laughter – those are gifts," said American actress Mary Tyler Moore.

Other famous supporters include Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Garner, Whitney Houston, Tyra Banks and Elton John.

ISTJ (Examiner) / Matt Damon

"Examiners" feel a strong sense of duty. They regularly inspect their worlds, making sure that everything's going according to plan (like that the potatoes you're growing are definitely not causing explosions) and that social norms are being followed.

"Your decisions here on Earth matter, your behavior matters, and how you treat other people matters," said American actor Matt Damon. "It ... comes down to accountability for your own behavior [and] that's important."

Other famous examiners include Robert De Niro, John Malkovich, Sean Connery and weather overlord Kim Kardashian.

ISFJ (Defender) / Mother Teresa

"Defenders" are all about being there for other people. They can tell what their family and friends need, and they devote themselves to filling those needs.

"Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home," said Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Mother Teresa.

Other famous defenders include Christopher Walken, Halle Berry and Kanye West, because nothing says "taking care of others" like a song titled "I Love Kanye."

ESTP (Persuader) / Michael J. Fox

"Persuaders" are a friendly, enthusiastic bunch who live in the here and now. They're not particularly impressed by rules, preferring to solve problems right away, rather than waiting around for a more traditional solution.

"I was eccentric, even as a kid. I was an early reader, an early talker. I was very curious in a way that maybe the other kids weren't. I was a little more outgoing," said Canadian actor Michael J. Fox.

Other famous persuaders include Alfred Hitchcock, Harry Houdini, Meryl Streep and Ryan Seacrest.

ESFP (Entertainer) / Marilyn Monroe


"Entertainers" love being the center of attention, and they're good at keeping their audiences happy. They like excitement and action, and they are rarely found alone. For these folks, the world is a stage.

"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world," said American actress Marilyn Monroe, who never conquered the world, presumably because high heels aren't the right shoes for world domination.

Other famous entertainers include Quentin Tarantino, Beyoncé, Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber.

ISTP (Craftsman) / Bruce Lee

"Craftsmen" are always getting into exciting adventures. They're highly technically skilled, able to build a house or master kung fu (or, if you're really good, both at the same time).

"If you always put a limit on everything you do, physical or anything else," said Hong Kong martial artist Bruce Lee, "it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."

Other famous craftsmen (and craftswomen) include Ellen Page, Scarlett Johansson, Frank Zappa, Miles Davis, Tom Cruise, Woody Allen and Eminem.

ISFP (Artist) / John Travolta

Naturally, "artists" are creative types with a deep appreciation for beauty. They have rich inner lives and are quick to try out new fashions and trends.

"Oh yeah, dancing's part of my soul," said American actor and exciting hairstyle enthusiast John Travolta. "I enjoy it, it makes people happy, and it makes me happy."

Other famous artists (and there are, naturally, a lot) include the always-memorable David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne.

ENTJ (Chief) / Patrick Stewart


"Chiefs" are natural leaders, and they know it. They're great at organizing big groups, and they're not shy about speaking their minds, especially when they come up with great solutions.

"I never had teenage years. I guess because I was seen to be more adult than anybody around me," said British actor Patrick Stewart.

Other famous chiefs include David Letterman, George Clooney and Adele.

INTJ (Strategist) / Jane Austen

These highly thoughtful types spend much of their time making plans and carrying them out, seeing the world sort of like a giant chessboard. They're natural leaders, but they prefer to stay in the background. For fun, they tend to enjoy intense conversation, rather than loud parties.

"My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company," said British author Jane Austen.

Other famous strategists include a bunch of people you've probably never heard of, such as Isaac Newton, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Nikola Tesla, Stephen Hawking, James Cameron and Russell Crowe, who probably had an easy time playing fellow strategist John Nash in "A Beautiful Mind."

ENFJ (Mentor) / Johnny Depp

"Mentors" are charismatic people who are incredibly warm and popular with others. They like to help their friends grow and reach their full potentials, and they offer great encouragement.

"It's all kinds of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world. It's like you've met your reason to live," said American actor Johnny Depp.

Other famous mentors include Oprah Winfrey, Morgan Freeman, Bono and probably Yoda, we assume.

ENFP (Advocate) / Dr. Seuss, aka Theodor Seuss Geisel


"Advocates" have strong values and do everything they can to improve the world. They have a natural talent for expressing themselves and getting their thoughts out, doing their best to make a difference.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not," wrote American author Dr. Seuss.

Other famous advocates include Hunter S. Thompson, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Robin Williams and relationship "expert" Jerry Seinfeld. We'd love to see this crew team up in a movie about quippy, hallucinating genies. Oh wait ...

INFJ (Confidant) / Shirley Temple Black

This rare type (making up less than 1% of the population) is gentle and caring, endlessly trying to bring harmony to all. People naturally go to them with problems, probably because empathetic INFJ's make great listeners.

"There are many of us who should be in a position to bring peace to the world," said American actress Shirley Temple.

Other famous confidants include Plato (being Socrates' confidant was Plato's big break, after all), Joanna Newsom and Sufjan Stevens, who should definitely all write some philosophical folk-rock together.

INFP (Dreamer) / J. R. R. Tolkien

Highly imaginative "dreamers," often have a knack for language and art. They're very idealistic and have an inborn sense of wonder.

"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost" wrote British author J. R. R. Tolkien.

Other famous dreamers include Virginia Woolf, J.K. Rowling, Vincent van Gogh and some guy named William Shakespeare.
