In the wild world of SM Entertainment group NCT, subunit NCT DREAM has a vibe all its own. Made up of MARK, RENJUN, JENO, HAECHAN, JAEMIN, CHENLE, and JISUNG, the vibrant, colorful, and playful seven-piece act are back with their latest album, a project tiled ISTJ.
For anyone not familiar with the Myers-Briggs personality test, the indicator assigns people four letters that fall across a spectrum of introversion and extroversion, judgement and feeling, intuition, and more. ISTJ, for example, would stand for introverted, sensing, thinking, and judging.
“Anyone who knows me would guess that I am INFP,” says JISUNG of his personality type. “I’m closer to an E,” says HAECHAN, explaining the difference between introverts and extroverts.
While none of the members of NCT DREAM say they align with the personality type of ISTJ, the recent single of the same name was delivered with total confidence. ISTJ will become available in the US in a physical version beginning August 18th, and to celebrate, the members of NCT DREAM reflected on their personality types and the recent album. Watch the music video for “ISTJ” and dig into their thoughts on the Myers-Briggs test below.
