Archetype: The Entertainer


The Entertainer is a successful, famous, and influential person – most commonly male – who entertains the public through his music, acting, and occasionally comedy, reality TV, or YouTube. If he has come to success in his younger years, which is often the case, he is usually the “heart throb” of countless young women. Social media likes to report on how this guy brings home one beautiful woman after the other, and when he will finally cease to be a life-long bachelor. The Entertainer’s lifestyle is typically quite expensive and beyond the dreams of “commoners”. Nevertheless, he is not inclined to let this rise to his head. Despite all the fame and money, he has the ability to reserve some amount of humbleness and appreciation for his fans and supporters, who are the reason he has arrived at where he is now.

The typological profile of The Entertainer is:

Socionics: SEE or ESI
Tritype: 369, The Mediator (most iconically with 3w2 as the Core type)
Instinctual Stacking: Sx/Sp

Not all people who fit the above profile will become an Entertainer, but with enough talent and hard work, they most likely will become such.

Examples: Elvis Presley, Justin Bieber, Robbie Williams, Steve Harvey, Adam LambertChristina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Trisha Paytas, Britney Spears, Marilyn Monroe

There are certain variations of the main profile of The Entertainer. Those individuals do not fit the Archetype exactly, so they wouldn’t be immediately regarded as a person of that caliber. However, they can reach to a similar or the same level, if they persevere and are again, talented enough.

Examples of variations: Michael Jackson, Dane CookJimmy Tatro, Prince, Madonna, Chris Isaak, Justin Timberlake

A close “relative” to The Entertainer would be The Actor.
