Shawn Mendes was born on August 8, 1998 in Pickering, Ontario, Canada. He first gained recognition on YouTube and Vine through his affiliation with the popular Vine group Magcon Boys alongside Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas and others. He released his first single “Life of the Party” in June 2014. His self-titled debut EP reached number one on the iTunes charts in under 40 minutes upon being released in July 2014.
What is Shawn Mendes’s Personality Type?
Shawn Mendes is a fiery, emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in his psychological make-up, he has acquired a deep sense of his individuality and uniqueness. He sometimes feels “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of himself, he attempts to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of his efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated.
It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because his impressive deeds usually earn recognition for him, and reinforce his self-assurance and his certainty that he does indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. He sometimes makes an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. He likes to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of his conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. He may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society.
The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives him to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on his ego. By creating something, he can make his own individual mark on the world; he can organize it to reflect his own image, instead of allowing himself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in his own image are strong indications that he seeks to identify with his superego. The difference between his ideal of himself and the individual he knows himself to be in truth, measured in terms of his social recognition or the recognition of his creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine his state of mind. It is therefore important for him to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible.
The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in his personality. His dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; his strong instinct and ambition combined with his somewhat exaggerated individualism incline him to be self-focused. He may be proud, but he is also courageous, determined, and generous. He has the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, he is mysteriously lucky.
Shawn Mendes is sensual. Pleasure is important to Shawn Mendes.
Shawn Mendes is attracted by the here-and-now, by study, and writing. Shawn Mendes has a special affinity for the people around him: siblings (or close friends), neighbors, etc.
At the time of Shawn Mendes’ birth, his rising sign was located in Capricorn (the Goat), while the sun was passing through the sign of Leo (the Lion). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide his personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of his character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Narcissism – Need for security – Determination – Inhibition – Pride and self-assurance – Application – Superiority – Methodical mind – Brilliance – Forethought – Generosity – Loyalty – Optimism.
Shawn Mendes’ energetic, proud, and self-admiring side engages his guileful, withdrawn, calculating side either in conflict or in cooperation, depending on the circumstances.
His authority and determination often monopolize his energy, at the expense of his emotions. Or he may find himself distracted from pursuing his goals by the whisperings of his heart. By middle age, however, he should reach a balance which gives liberal expression to all his gifts. Control over his emotions, pride, and passions should then give him access to the highest realms of self-realization.
Born in the three and one-half days after the full moon rose, Shawn Mendes is said to be a “full moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives him an objective, rational, and lucid character. However, since the moon is opposite the sun at the time of the full moon, his objective tendencies are balanced by a more idealistic penchant. Because the forces pull him in two different ways – one toward dreams, the other toward reality – he may be aware of some inner contradictions which are causing practical and social difficulties for him.
At times, he is too demanding of himself or others, comparing them to an ideal, whereas at others, he is too nonchalant and indulgent about life. He vacillates between two poles. One is elitist; the other is more earthy and perhaps vulgar at times. The result is a multifaceted self.
Generally speaking, his monthly energy flow is strongest at the time of the full moon. He would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects.
