Do you know your MBTI type? If you're a cosplayer, or just love Disney movies, you'll want to know which Little Mermaid characters best match your personality. So without further ado, let's take a look at the Myers-Briggs types of some of our favorite characters from the sea!
Ariel - ESFP

Ariel is an ESFP (Extroverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving) personality type, and she loves spontaneity and adventure. She enjoys being around people and making them happy. Ariel is always on the go and exploring new things, but her spontaneity can sometimes lead her into trouble. It's no surprise that Ariel would take a risk to follow her dreams - even if it means giving up her voice!
Ursula is a power-hungry sea witch with a wicked sense of humor and a knack for making others do her bidding. Ursula is an INTJ (Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging) personality type. This type is driven by logic rather than emotion, making them excellent strategists. Ursula definitely fits this description with her master plan for world domination.

Prince Eric is an ISFJ (Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging). ISFJs are known for their compassionate nature, and Eric is no exception. He's a kind and gentle soul, willing to do whatever it takes to save Ariel from Ursula's schemes.
Sebastian serves as court composer to King Triton and advisor to Ariel. Some think of Sebastian as grumpy, but he is actually just very protective of his family and kingdom. His loyalty to King Triton is unquestionable, and he does everything in his power to keep Ariel out of trouble. Sebastian's MBTI personality type can be best described as ISTJ (Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging). ISTJs are known for their practicality and dependability - both of which Sebastian exhibits in abundance. He is always there for his friends and family, even if that means putting his own safety at risk.

Finally, we have Flounder, the loveable sidekick of our favorite mermaid. He's an ENFP (Extroverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving) - these types often have a bubbly personality with lots of enthusiasm for new ideas. It's no wonder he'd be up for joining Ariel on her underwater adventures!
