Some personality types are known for being extremely polite in every situation while others couldn’t care less what people think of them and their manners. While politeness depends a lot on culture and upbringing, some personality types are definitely more polite than the rest!
Ever wondered which of the 16 personality types are most and least polite? Check out this list and see if you agree with the ranking!
Each of the 16 personality types has extraordinary qualities, strengths, and opportunities for personal growth. Whether you’re an Introvert or an Extravert, a Thinking type or a Feeling type, every combination in the 16-type system has a few traits that aren’t recognized often enough.

Introverts, like Extraverts, may struggle with their stress levels, but not always for the same reasons. Since the introverted types of the 16-type system are more prone to overstimulation than their extraverted counterparts, certain types of people can unwittingly put you into a stressful response.
When Introverts become angry, they tend to hold everything inside, hiding their anger from others and even from themselves.
Or at least this is what most people think. In fact, this idea is more myth than reality.
I have a complicated relationship with collaboration. I’m an ISTJ, so of course I’ve looked at the research.
