Typing famous black folks ( MBTI)

Even after over 6 years of being acquainted with the Myers-Briggs typology, I’m not too well versed. But I do have an awful habit of always guessing people’s types and mapping different actions and quirks to see what type they most likely could match. Whilst practically every white celebrity ( and fictional characters)  has been typed, I haven’t seen more than a handful of black celebrities. So I spent all night trying to remember the people I’ve previously guessed ( turns out I have a weakness for NFs). Don’t take this for gospel truth. If you have a different take on any person I’ve typed, please do comment and let me know. This isn’t conclusive. I’ll probably type more notable blacks as they come to mind. I can’t blame the absence of black people in MBTI circles on anyone but blacks. The onus is on us to express our truths. Funnily enough, most of the famous people I included are American. Seems like I’m too deep in the pop culture thing. Anyway, here goes;
