There are lots of different personality tests out there, but perhaps the most well-known is the Myers-Briggs 16 personality test. There are four main personality types – analysts, diplomats, sentinels, and explorers – with subsets of each personality type. You can take a free online quiz to find out your personality type. All you have to do is select whether you agree or disagree that a series of statements describes you, and you’ll receive the results about your personality type with the associated strengths and weaknesses. 

Once you know your four letter personality code, check out which Hollywood starlet had the same personality type as you!

INTJ - Hedy Lamarr

Like the Austrian-born actress, you love perfecting yourself and all that you do. You are intellectually curious about the world and seek to find the logical answer as you establish your own beliefs. Not only did the starlet find herself on the silver screen, but she also developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes at the beginning of World War II. You, like her, are determined to achieve great things!

INTP - Lana Wood

You lose yourself in thought and seem to be in a constant state of daydreaming as you ponder different ideas. If you feel as though you constantly change your mind, that’s probably because ideas come to you so fast you don’t have time to decide before a new one has arrived. You share your intuitive thinking nature with child star turned Bond girl Lana Wood. 

ENTJ - Katharine Hepburn 

You’re a natural-born leader like the fiercely independent leading lady Katharine Hepburn. Charisma comes naturally to you, and you never back down from a good challenge. You and the star of The Philadelphia Story and Bringing Up Baby are meant to lead others unflinchingly toward your goals. 

ENTP - Pola Negri

You aren’t afraid to go against the status quo, and neither was silent film star Pola Negri, whose career took off with The Spanish Dancer. Your quick wit and playful sense of humor make you prone to debate, but they also endear you to others. Just be sure not to be too focused on winning the argument all the time, and use your debate skills to see other points of view. 

INFJ - Julie Andrews

You want to make a difference in the world and so did Julie Andrews. The sweet-as-pie starlet is perhaps one of the best known actresses of all time for her roles in The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, and The Princess Diaries. Your life’s mission is helping others and giving all of your energy to caring for the important relationships in your life. 

INFP - Audrey Hepburn 

Audrey Hepburn once said, “Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.” You and Audrey have empathy in common. You care deeply about the people around you and make it your mission in life to uplift. 

ENFJ - Sophia Loren

What do you and Italian actress Sophia Loren have in common? You’re both passionate, and the lives you lead inspire everyone you come into contact with. You love giving advice, but your best advice can be found in the way you live your life. 

ENFP - Liza Minelli

You and Liza Minelli are truly free spirits. You have an imagination that is almost infectious as you find connections in the world around you. Like the energetic performer of the classic Cabaret, you love a good, heartfelt conversation and help others to open up. 

ISTJ - Jennifer Jones

Like actress and mental health advocate Jennifer Jones, you believe there is always a right thing to do. Your life is one of integrity, focused on honesty with others and staying grounded under any circumstances. Similar to the Oklahoma native famous for Duel in the Sun, you are someone people can always count on. 

ISFJ - Ilene Woods

Like the original voice actress of Cinderella, you are dependable. You remember your friends’ birthdays and always meet your deadlines. You’re unceasingly loyal to those you love and are meticulous in all you do. 

ESTJ - Bette Davis

Like Bette Davis, you are extroverted and go through the world defending your moral values. Bette had a reputation for being a perfectionist on set, which may have stemmed from the sense of responsibility that the two of you share. You are dedicated and honest, and expect the same from others. 

ESFJ - Grace Kelly

You share your hospitality and good manners with Hollywood actress and Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly. You want to give back and have a hard time understanding when people don’t do what’s right. 

ISTP - Greta Garbo 

Exploring with your hands and working on your latest project is what you and Swedish-American actress Greta Garbo are all about. You are both direct and reserved, and make bold decisions that defy the rules. 

ISFP - Marilyn Monroe

Bombshell Marilyn Monroe and you share a flexible approach to life. You approach everything in your life as a form of self-expression and can always go with the flow. And while you may appear not to care what others think of you, you’re very emotionally receptive. 

ESTP - Lucille Ball

What do you and the iconic I Love Lucy actress have in common? You’re both spontaneous, energetic, and competitive. You’re often impulsive and aren’t afraid to take a chance on life. You’re extremely observant and able to notice things others would not.

ESFP - Elizabeth Taylor

Just like Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, you’re an entertainer. You devote your time and energy to encouraging others in their pursuits. And you’re probably used to people asking where you got that, because whether it’s your outfit or your home decor, you have a great sense of style and are very aesthetic driven.
