What Colors to Paint Your Walls According to Your MBTI

Introduction

Did you know that according to basic color theory, there is a science behind how we associate colors with certain emotions? For example, blue is associated with relaxation, which is why it has such a calming feel to it. If you want to add that extra personality to your home, using the right colors to match your personality is the best way to do it. After all, it is your home.

You may be wondering about what your personality type is — a quick runthrough of the MBTI test can give you that answer. MBTI, short for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, is a handy tool used to help us understand how we prefer to communicate and interact with other individuals. According to this test, there are 16 types of personalities. Do you know which one you identify best as?

After you’ve gotten your personality type, this can help you understand yourself better. Additionally, it’ll help you throughout this article, where we recommend the best colors to include in your home to make it feel more personable to you. Knowing ourselves and choosing the right colors for our home is important, so keep reading to find out more.
