Getting interested in MBTI-

Once his brother predicted that Frank’s MBTI type could be INFJ and a few months later, he took the test and it revealed that he is an INFJ and thanks to his brother’s prophetic, he got interested in Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

And he started learning more about MBTI.

An introvert-

Frank was an introvert in his school and he became even more introverted during college.

As he was younger than most of his classmates, he used to always feel intimidated by them.

Frank was homeschooled for a few years of his middle school.

He started doing theatre in his high school as he was interested in theatre and believed that it could improve his introversion and help him to easily communicate with people.

In theatre, Frank used to write comedies and make people laugh.

But he became even more introverted while in college and used to not attend any parties and also, he didn’t make any friends.

While studying in college, Frank shifted his focus from acting to writing.

After graduating, he attended a grad school and here, he started to open up.


After graduating from the grad school, for a while, Frank struggled to find a job.

A year later, he secured a job at the grad school in which he previously graduated but this job didn’t interest him.

During this time, Frank started suffering from social anxiety and he became even more introverted and this continued for many years.

Later, he started working as an accountant and he worked as an accountant until he became a full-time YouTuber.

Career & confidence through YouTube-

Frank started his YouTube channel by the name Frank James on 1 January 2017.

He was an avid watcher of Casey Neistat’s vlogs and his vlogs inspired him to start a YouTube channel and publish videos.

Frank’s interest and background in theatre and writing greatly helped him while working on his YouTube channel.

He wanted to become a writer and a musician but couldn’t succeed in becoming one and so, he started focusing more on his YouTube channel.

YouTube not only provided Frank a career but also relieved him of social anxiety and built his confidence.

His YouTube journey-

Initially, Frank used to publish advice and personal development teaching videos onto his channel.

Later, he started incorporating humour into his videos and thanks to this, he gained thousands of subscribers.

At that time, Erik Thor used to get good views for his MBTI videos and this inspired Frank to produce MBTI videos.

In 2017, he observed that the many YouTubers were getting good views by making videos on 16 personality sketches.

Frank observed that a girl published a video titled- 16 personalities at a party and got nearly a million views and he too wanted to do a comedy sketch on 16 personalities in order to become viral on YouTube.

In early 2019, he observed that Bogdan Yakubets was regularly publishing videos on 16 personalities and garnering good views and so, he too published a video titled- 16 Personalities at a Job Interview (funny) on 31 May 2019.

This video became the most successful and viral video of his channel and so, he started making similar comedy videos.

Thanks to all these, Frank’s subscribers count skyrocketed.
