Your Interior Design Style Based on Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

With the resurgence of pop psychology, one of the famous theories where everyone is currently raving about is the Myers-Briggs Personality Type. Our existence gravitates around a unique inner factor or as we typically call it, personality. When it comes to interior design, personality dictates everything indirectly, the pattern we will choose, the color we will prefer in different unknown situations, the texture that we consider fit, proper, comfortable.

Interior design talks about the owner, a quality design makes a statement for his owners, it`s his shelter between an unknown and chaotic environment and a little piece of heaven. This extraordinary feeling defined the phrase “there`s no place like home” in which home subdues house, mansion, villa, castle, and any other capsuled or encapsulated environment.

For this article, Tokyo Grand Renovation will feature how your Myers Briggs Type Indicator affects your personal interior design choices. If you’re clueless about your MBTI, try taking the test here.

Taking notes from Apartment Therapy, breaking it down letter by letter, check out what per letter may indicate for your interior design.


Extraversion (E)

Create a space for entertaining. You want a home that makes random get-togethers and drop-ins easy and comfortable. You’ll feel happiest in a space with open layouts and plenty of seating. Don’t second-guess the advantage of having a guest room (or at least a comfy couch) for visiting friends to stay close by.

Introversion (I)

Create a retreat. As an introvert, you enjoy spending time alone to recharge, so when decorating your space, give yourself a place to do just that, like a reading nook or something away from the action. A family of introverts might want to make sure there are plenty of walls at home–loft living is not for you.


Sensing (S)

Pare down. You’re a very practical, present-minded thinker, so chances are you don’t have a lot of stuff anyway. But if you do find that you’re burdened by things, consider shifting to a capsule wardrobe or embracing some aspects of minimalist living. Consider form over function when you’re trying to revamp your space’s interior design.

Intuition (N)

Trust those instincts! Make decorating decisions for yourself, and not according to any advice or rule book. You might not understand why you feel the way you do about choosing a paint color or where to hang a picture, but it’s got to be a great choice. Feel free to indulge your interior design in things just because you like them.


As dreamers and believers of the cosmos, synergy and harmony with the stars have a deep connection with one’s preference in style and design.


Thinking (T)

Make your solutions. Thinkers are chief strategists, skilled at analyzing the situation around them and coming up with the perfect solution. For that reason, you shouldn’t feel shackled to conventional advice about interior design room layouts and traffic flow, because you are the most qualified person to determine how to create a home that works for you and your family.

Feeling (F)

Create a space you can share with others. Feelers are sensitive to others. They enjoy giving gifts and performing acts of service for the people they’re close to. Figure out what that means for you–entertaining? baking?–and make sure your home supports that. Create a relaxing space decked out with amenities like a coffee station, home bar, or spa-like bathroom.


Judging (J)

Embrace routine. You have an organized nature and you like to plan in advance and do things step-by-step. Make that innate part of your personality a part of your interior design, too. Keep your calendars and to-do-lists on display and invest in everything-in-its-place home organizers.

Perceiving (P)

Mix it up. Perceivers are the ultimate free spirits. You love to keep your options open, improvising, and making things up as you go. So redecorate often. Find new ways to use your old furniture. Switch things up as often as possible for maximum domestic harmony.

The thoughts presented above are describing general typologies, personas, individuals that would fit the designs illustrated based on general principles. These are parameters that will rail in the creativity and taste of the personality dictating it.

The design lines described above can be of course heavily customized to match the complexity and uniqueness of each inhabitant because there is nothing more beautiful in this world than our differences, they make us unique, and like ourselves, like an extension of who we are, the ideal design for each of us will be, without a doubt, unique and superb.
