Mariah Carey, American Idol judge and singer is promoting new single #Beautiful and (not uncharacteristically) Mariah is surrounded by intrigue. So what does characterise Mariah?

We can see Mariah is comfortable speaking, openly and unscripted in public and with being the focus of attention. Both clear signs of an Extravert.

She speaks out how she feels about people and things and what they mean to her:

"Miguel is one of my favorite new artists…"

 "Very me…"

"This business that we all love so much"

"I feel like …"

And she is very people oriented:

"The best part of making music is collaborating with new people"

"Get people excited"

So we think she is a Feeling type

She is focused on the big picture, ideas, the new, possibilities and being excited and she most certainly doesn’t want to be constrained by current trends.

"Fresh sounds"

"Different, fresh, unique" 

"It’s bigger than me, it’s bigger than us"

"It's not following a trend and that’s the best thing"

"Having to follow trends, that's not what's fun about making music."

Which together indicate INitutive and Perceiving preferences

So we think Mariah Carey is an ENFP! What do you think? Do you see any other examples of her personality? Or perhaps you see her as a different Jungian Type? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
