The Disney Song That Matches Your Myers-Briggs® Personality Type
If you’re a Disney fan, I’m sure you’ve thought about which songs are your favorites. Maybe you’ve considered which ones speak to you the most or seem like something you’d sing if you were a character in a Disney movie. So if you’ve ever wondered which Disney song matches your personality type, you’ve come to the right blog post.
Note: When I matched types up with songs, I focused more on the lyrics than on the personality type of the character singing. Sometimes those are the same, but not always. For example, I picked “Go The Distance” for ISTPs, but I think Hercules is an ESFJ.

Here’s the Disney Song You’ll Love, Based On Your Myers-Briggs® Personality Type
ENFP – “Friend Like Me”
“I got a powerful urge to help you outSo what’s your wish? I really wanna know You got a list that’s three miles long, no doubt All you gotta do is rub like so” – Genie
If you’ve ever had an ENFP friend, then you likely understand this song pick. Like Genie from Aladdin, ENFPs have a way of making it seem like anything’s possible. They’re enthusiastic, imaginative, and inspire the people around them to join them in a life of adventure where even the wildest dreams feel within reach.
ENTP – “Try Everything”
“I won’t give up, no, I won’t give in‘Til I reach the end, and then I’ll start again No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail”
Personality Hacker nicknamed ENTPs’ favorite mental process “Exploration” because NP types enjoy experimenting with and exploring the world around them. They’re a type likely to “Try Everything” despite the risk of failure, as described in this song from Zootopia.
INFP – “Colors of the Wind”
“You think the only people who are peopleAre the people who look and think like you But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew“
INFPs see magic in the world around them and inside them, much like in this song from Pocahontas. For this introspective type, things are always deeper than they seem. A closer look or a little more time spent listening can reveal unexpected beauty and connection.
INTP – “That’s What Makes the World Go Round”
“But the main thing is that…
You must set your sights upon the heights
Don’t be a mediocrity
Merlin: That’s right.
Don’t just wait then trust to fate
And say, “That’s how it’s meant to be”
I had the hardest time finding a good INTP song (it’s unfortunate Milo from Atlantis doesn’t sing). Susan suggested this song from The Sword in the Stone, and I think it’s a great pick. Like many INTPs, Merlin has an intuitive understanding of the world as a wholistic system, an interest in avoiding mediocrity, and insists that using your intellect is key to success in life.
ENFJ – “God Help the Outcasts”
“I ask for nothing, I can get byBut I know so many less lucky than I Please help my people The poor and down trod I thought we all were the children of God God help the outcasts Children of God”
Not every ENFJ will relate to Esmerelda’s particular religious outlook in this song from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but her deep sympathy with other people is something most ENFJs share. She notices human problems overlooked by many and she connects the solution for that problem with a higher ideal.
ENTJ – “How Far I’ll Go”
“See the line where the sky meets the sea?It calls me And no one knows How far it goes If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me One day I’ll know If I go, there’s just no telling how far I’ll go”
I hadn’t thought of this song from Moana for ENTJs until I read Susan’s reasoning for typing Moana as an ENTJ. I like how this song blends the responsible leadership side of the ENTJ type with the explorative, innovative drive that they also have.
INFJ – “Let It Go”
“The wind is howling like this swirling storm insideCouldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried Don’t let them in, don’t let them see Be the good girl you always have to be Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know Well, now they know”
A lot of people relate to this song from Frozen, but Susan and I both type Elsa as an INFJ and it’s the song I picked for this type. INFJs often feel alone and isolated, particularly before learning about their personality type and finding others who can relate to their unusual way of looking at the inner and outer worlds.
INTJ – “Be Prepared”
“So prepare for the coup of the centuryBe prepared for the murkiest scam Meticulous planning Tenacity spanning Decades of denial Is simply why I’ll Be king undisputed Respected, saluted And seen for the wonder I am”
Scar’s anthem to preparedness and mastermind planning is a good fit as this type’s song. This song from The Lion King features the sort of meticulous planning, decades of tenacity, and ambition that many INTJs appreciate (though typically in a far less villainous way).
ESFP – “Hakuna Matata”
“Hakuna Matata!What a wonderful phrase Hakuna Matata! Ain’t no passing craze It means no worries For the rest of your days Yeah, sing it, kid! It’s our problem-free philosophy Hakuna Matata!”
This catchy song from The Lion King voices a worry-free outlook on life that many people who know ESFPs would identify with them. Though they do have a serious side, ESFPs are also very in-tune with the enjoyable parts of the world around them.
ESTP – “Touch the Sky”
“Where dark woods hide secretAnd mountains are fierce and bold Deep waters hold reflections Of times lost long agoI will hear their every storyTake hold of my own dream Be as strong as the seas are stormy And proud as an eagle’s scream”
ESTPs are often bold, live-in-the-moment people who thrive on activity and adventure. This song from Brave celebrates that adventurous, experience-seeking nature and also speaks to a deep desire to understand through experience.
ISFP – “Reflection”
“Who is that girl I seeStaring straight back at me? When will my reflection show Who I am inside?”
This introspective song from Mulan makes me think of the struggle so many ISFP types have with trying to live authentically when the world around them expects something else. They’re driven by their individual values and want to make their dreams a reality.
ISTP – “Go the Distance”
“And I won’t look back, I can go the distanceAnd I’ll stay on track, no I won’t accept defeat It’s an uphill slope But I won’t loose hope, ’till I go the distance And my journey is complete, oh yeah”
This song from Hercules is one of my favorites (partly thanks to Emmet Cahill). ISTPs are a type often cast as action heroes in fiction, and this song reflects both their adventurous side and the part of them that wants to do something meaningful in the world.
ESFJ – “Be Our Guest”
“Ma chere Mademoiselle, it is with deepest prideand greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up achair as the dining room proudly presents –your dinner!”
This song from Beauty and the Beast makes me think of the hospitable, people-focused nature that ESFJs are so well known for. Relentlessly kind and welcoming, many ESFJs are so tuned-in to other people’s needs that they’re able to make even brand-new friends feel right at home.
ESTJ – “Surface Pressure”
“I’m the strong one, I’m not nervousI’m as tough as the crust of the Earth is I move mountains, I move churches And I glow, ’cause I know what my worth is I don’t ask how hard the work is Got a rough indestructible surface Diamonds and platinum, I find ’em, I flatten ’em I take what I’m handed, I break what’s demanded”
I just had to have a song from Encanto on here. ESTJs are often nicknamed The Guardians, which fits Luisa’s role in the family Madrigal well. But like, well, everyone, ESTJs are more than meets the eye. Their responsibility, logic, and very real competence can mask internal questioning about their lives (especially when they’re stressed).
ISFJ – “You’ll Be in My Heart”
Like other FJ types, ISFJs are people-focused and value harmony in relationships. They’re often selfless, take care of others, and love building connections. This lovely song from Tarzan makes me think of that gentle, relationship-building side of the ISFJs.
ISTJ – “A Spoonful of Sugar”
This song from Mary Poppins makes me think of the way ISTJ types balance their serious, hard-working sides with humor. Responsibility and practicality are vital, but they can also be fun with the right perspective.

What Are Your Thoughts?
What did you think of this article? Would you suggest a different song for any of the types? Let us know in the comments!
Of course they portray INTJ with the villain song. We’re not that bad! Promise!
Can we please talk about how there isn’t a SINGLE extrovert personality commenting?!
Probably because the extroverts don’t spend all their free time on the Internet…
For me, the ISFP song Reflection… it isn’t quite relatable, but I do like it.
I am so ‘INFJ’ and I also like being different in some ways than other, that’s what makes my inner self respectful & bloom!
INFP, I can agree with this plus it’s my fav song
ISFJ. They gave me You’ll be in My Heart from the Tarzan movie. I used to have to sing this song to my son to get him to stop crying. He is 4 now and will occasionally still have me sing this song. It is our song.
INFP here. I agree with my song choice, The Color of the Wind. Others that I think were also spot on are: 1) Be Prepared (INTJ), my belated father was a kind, patient, and persevere INTJ. Although it was a villain song, it does fit my father’s personality. 2) Hakuna Matata (ESFP), I might be unable to stand their attention seeking self 24/7, but I do enjoy ESFP’s no worries side from time to time. 3) You’ll Be in My Heart (ISFJ), which was one of my most favorite song (so nostalgic to me), is why I love ISFJs. They are the salt of the earth, without them, the world will be an unbearable place to live and I will give up in humanity a long time ago. For the ISFJ mother who commented here: Your child is so lucky to have you as their mother. I wish I have an ISFJ as close family/friend who genuinely loves me, maybe I will be a lot less depressed and suicidal.
I’m an INFJ and the song i most relate to is the later part of Belle’s Reprise where she sings about what she really wants out of life. It’s my favorite Disney I Want song.
Oh, and the end of Pocahontas’s Just Around The Riverbend when she lamented about the her life’s choices. It’s just so beautiful.
Really disappointed with the INTP song. Everyone else gets fun songs from more popular films. I think “Jack’s Obsession” from Nightmare before Christmas fits us. Or even the first verse of “Strangers Like Me” from Tarzan captures the INTP hunger for understanding and connecting things.
