How to Dress According to Your Myers-Briggs Results

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a useful tool for understanding the expansive gamut of personality types in the form of a friendly four-letter result. Developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Briggs, this personality inventory considers four categories of comparison: extraversion versus introversion, sensing versus intuition, thinking versus feeling, and judging versus perceiving. Depending on your individual results, you’ll have one of 16 personality types to call your very own. And though we can go on and on about the validity of our outcomes (which actually are surprisingly accurate and enjoyable to share), here we have reexamined the results in a sartorial manner, proving that our unique personalities reflect the clothes we wear too. Read on to see how you can dress according to your personality result!

Although ISTJs might be quiet and serious at times, they are known for their practicality and diligence. As logical thinkers, ISTJs value the art of perfection, and their go-to wardrobe piece ought to be a crisp white button-down that reflects their need for structure and rules.

If you’ve personally met an ISFJ, you know that they are one of the most loyal and considerate friends out there. ISFJs work hard to create a harmonious space for everyone around them, and when necessary, they are not shy about expressing their loyalty to people they care about. A chic blouse embodies their willingness to take the time to appreciate the loved ones in their lives. 

INFJs hold strong personal values, but they are also interested in discovering connections and meaning in ideas and relationships around them. We can expect INFJs to wear a structured blazer, illustrating their bold and self-sufficient personalities.

INTJs are fiercely independent. As goal-oriented individuals, INTJs have high standards of competence and performance for themselves as well as others. Not only are they committed to what they do, but INTJs also value quality, and these leather mules certainly meet their expectations.

ISTPs tend to stay out of the limelight for the most part, but they are quick problem-solvers. They are especially good at sorting through data and finding the core of the issue, all the while promoting efficiency and quality in their work. A jean jacket is the perfect third piece for ISTPs who want a fuss-free and fashionable outfit.

With a sensitive and kind nature, ISFPs usually enjoy the present moment more so than the past or future. They have a tendency to want to work on their own time and at their own pace. Not a fan of conflicts and arguments, ISFPs enjoy an easygoing dress that requires minimal effort yet is stylish at the same time.

As much as they are idealistic, INFPs are also adaptable and flexible to the environment around them. Their curiosity and intuitiveness allow for INFPs to be less afraid of the season’s trends, and surely we can expect them to sport the cropped flared-denim look without a flinch.

INTPs are deep thinkers. They tend to see the bigger picture in life, and their unusual ability to channel their focus for in-depth problem-solving serves them well in critical situations. Lost in their abstract thoughts, INTPs always carry a pair of sunglasses in case they need to divert their gaze away from unwanted social interaction.

A social butterfly among the crowd, ESTPs live for spontaneity. Learning best through action, ESTPs seek answers by actively engaging with the problem given to them. A printed shirt suits ESTPs’ love for unexpectedness, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s a cute statement piece.

Similar to ESTPs, ESFPs also enjoy social interactions and tend to bring out the fun in many situations. They usually do well in new environments, and meeting new people is an opportunity they will not pass up. Similar to their exuberance, bright yellow slip-on sandals are a match made in heaven for ESFPs!

ENFPs are a creative bunch—they see life as full of possibilities. They have an innate confidence that shines through their ability to quickly make connections between events and information. Free-spirited and bold, ENFPs would dare to wear a printed jumpsuit and own the room.  

ENTPs never want to do the same thing twice. Generally bored by routines, they find challenges as a way to practice their resourcefulness. Metallic heels are just another way for ENTPs to try something new and test boundaries that excite them.

Nothing goes unnoticed by ESTJs, who are all about efficiency. Logical, detail-oriented, and not afraid to speak their minds, ESTJs need footwear that reflects their personality. A good pair of white slip-on sneakers is trendy but also useful.

ESFJs are considerate and cooperative, but don’t let this surface fool you. When it comes to handling tasks, ESFJs are all about work—their determination and thoroughness are in full force! However, they still have a soft spot, wanting appreciation from others for what they do, and a comfy roll-neck sweater provides just enough satisfaction for these busy bees.

ENFJs have a tendency to bring out the best in others. As much as they are sociable, ENFJs are also highly aware of the emotions and needs of the people around them. They are willing to contribute themselves for the betterment of the whole, and this cozy turtleneck dress embodies their warmhearted personality.

ENTJs are born leaders. Well read and well informed, they detect illogical operations and turn them around to set long-term goals that can develop into a comprehensive problem-solving system. A classic trench coat is a must for ENTJs to establish their sense of self.
