Your home is a reflection of you. But do you know your personality type to know what your dream home should look like?
Allow the ever-popular Myers-Briggs personality test to help you decode your home goals!
This test believes that our personalities sway in tandem with 4 psychological traits – sensation, intuition, feeling and thinking. And thus, we have 16 different personality types based on a person’s inclination toward certain choices.
Without further ado, let’s take a ride down an MBTI-based home decor inspiration journey based on your MBTI!
ISTJ – Minimalistic
Serious, formal, quiet, and logical, you guys are introverts who are also fans of structure and stability. Your efficient and logical thinking personalities are sure to get drawn towards minimalistic home decor for its simplicity, functionality, and fuss-free comfort.
INFJ – Eclectic
As an INFJ, you are notorious for seeing the world through a completely different lens. Your quaint, kitsch sense of aesthetics and love for all things creative make you the perfect candidate for an eclectic home decor that screams spellbinding, unique and statement pieces of decor, just like you!
INTJ – Mid-century modern
You, dear introvert, are not only a strategic planner but you also love unravelling patterns and reading between the lines. You are a true mastermind! This makes the mid-century modern aesthetic the perfect vibe for you. Just like you, your mid-century modern home offers more than what meets the eye. At first glance, it will look straightforward, retro, and simple. But delve deeper and you notice the rich, subtle exuberance and the diversity the decor has to offer!
ENFJ – Modern Farmhouse
A giver in the true sense, your ENFJ personality thrives on pleasing people. Your intuition, empathy and pleasant attitude entice people toward you and make them comfortable enough to open up to you. And isn’t that what a modern farmhouse is, too? Built on the foundations of warmth, comfort, and relaxation, its minimal, Scandinavian yet cozy ambience is inviting, relaxing and oh so friendly.
ISTP – French Country
You, my friend, are a paradox. Your mysterious personality is a contradictory mix of rational and logical, and abstract and creative. Clearly, a French Country aesthetic – with its hybrid mix of antique French, shabby chic and farmhouse interiors interspersed with minimalistic pieces full of grown-up allure – is the perfect mood setting for your home with its well-judged mix of juxtapositions.
ESFJ – Traditional
Your true-blue extroverted nature is comforting and familiar. You are the mood-lifters, the shoulder to cry on, and the vibe setters. Loved by one and all, you are one of those classics that no one can ever tire of. A traditional home decor theme makes the perfect match for your classic, welcoming personality. Your house is warm, inviting, and full of life; quite like you.

Quiet and reserved, you are the type of personality who loves spending time alone with yourself. You love your space to be calming and fuss-free so you can process your thoughts and feelings in peace, without any distractions. Doesn’t an Asian Zen-themed decor – with its pared down, minimalistic approach that is still uniquely layered enough to add some depth and character to its aesthetic – feel like the perfect choice for you, then?
ESFP – Hollywood Regency
Drama is your middle name! You love the spotlight, and all things glam and luxe. You are a true-blue entertainer, spontaneous in your approach and oh so artistic. A personality as dramatic as yours deserves a home full of Hollywood Regency. Timeless and fun, Hollywood Regency blends art deco with high-polished glam that boasts of modern and upbeat energy. You will fit right in there!

You, dear ENFP, refuse to live inside a box. And why should you when you were born to stand out?

Just like you, Art Deco interiors are opulent, elegant, glamorous and the epitome of chic.
ESTP – Industrial
Adventure risk-taking, spontaneous, and abstract are just some adjectives that perfectly describe your ESTP personality type.

The just and most socially conscious of the lot, you are practical, sustainable and detail oriented. You constantly crave stability and order and are always chasing the ‘right’ way to do things! The Urban Modern interior theme perfectly suits your personality. The timeless, modern yet contemporary vibe of an Urban Modern home with sustainable influences and a statement-making persona is the most obvious way to go for you!
