Discover the Kitchen Style for Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

LIFE IN THE KITCHEN
Where I Cook: Chelsea Fuss of Frolic!
If you’ve ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test, you know that afterwards every aspect of your life takes on immense clarity. Qualities that were previously irksome are now essential to your personhood; habits become lifelines to deeper understanding. You are that four-letter formula! Everything makes sense now.

We are fascinated with trying to define ourselves, but it’s okay, because today that fascination led you to this: a totally scientific, totally foolproof guide to your personal kitchen style, as identified by your Myers-Briggs personality type and this editor, who was given inspiration from above to make the connections known to you. Prepare to be enlightened.

ISTJ: The Inspector: Your kitchen style is Restaurant-Inspired. You have no use for frivolous things in the kitchen. Everything should be totally functional, and if it doesn’t serve a purpose, out it goes! You prefer stainless steel countertops, which are easy to clean, and everything within easy reach.

ISTJ: The Inspector
You in a nutshell: Responsible, neat, and orderly. You love systems and rules.
Your kitchen style is Restaurant-Inspired. You have no use for frivolous things in the kitchen. Everything should be totally functional, and if it doesn’t serve a purpose, out it goes! Like this restaurant kitchen, you prefer stainless steel countertops, which are easy to clean, and everything within easy reach.

ISFJ: The Protector
You in a nutshell: Compassionate, loyal, and grounded.
Your kitchen style is Farmhouse. You want wood, warmth, and wonderful people around you in the kitchen. A big wooden table is essential, as is an old-fashioned range and farmhouse sink. And of course, a fire in the hearth.

INFJ: The Counselor
You in a nutshell: Creative, idealistic, and always looking for ways to improve.
Your kitchen style is Scandinavian. Light, bright, and white! You love subway tile with dark grout, white-washed floors, and clean, tidy spaces with just a few bright pops of color. This reminds you of a better future ahead.

INTJ: The Mastermind
You in a nutshell: Analytical, intellectual, and a perfectionist.
Your kitchen style is Rustic Industrial. You like the heft and history of iron and reclaimed wood, and prefer a kitchen with deep colors and antique details — a good place for brooding.

ISTP: The Craftsman
You in a nutshell: Hands-on, detail-oriented, and a keen observer.
Your kitchen style is a Fixer-Upper. Are there cabinets to be repainted? Appliances to be fixed? New lighting to be wired? You’re on it. Where’s the fun in a finished kitchen? It’s all creating something with your own two hands.

ISFP: The Composer. Your kitchen style is Romantic. You’d be perfectly happy in a little Paris kitchen with airy lace curtains and a set of French doors that open out to the balcony. If it’s charming, it’s for you. A handsome Frenchman would also not be out of place.

ISFP: The Composer
You in a nutshell: Gentle and flexible, with a strong sense of style.

INFP: The Healer
You in a nutshell: Imaginative, sensitive, and spiritual.
Your kitchen style is Organic Modern. You love greenery and natural materials, like wood and linen, but often accent with classic or modern pieces. You are not afraid of a kilim rug in the kitchen.

INTP: The Architect
You in a nutshell: Philosophical, complex, and non-traditional.
Your kitchen style is Contemporary. Clean lines and cool tones. You’re too busy trying to figure out the mysteries of the universe to be preoccupied by the kitchen.

ESTP: The Dynamo
You in a nutshell: Energetic, playful, and social.
Your kitchen style is Happy Modern. You social butterfly, you! You love to have fun, and your kitchen is just like you: happy, playful, colorful, and maybe even a little silly or whimsical.

ESFP: The Performer
You in a nutshell: Confident, charming, and enthusiastic about life.
Your kitchen style is Classic Glam. Not every person can pull off a crystal chandelier in the kitchen, but you can’t think of anything more glorious. You love metallics, chevron, and Carrera marble countertops, and dream of owning a La Cornue range.

ENFP: The Champion. Your kitchen style is Bohemian. You have a strong artistic side, and love a cozy, carefree kitchen with plenty of colorful tea towels, throw rugs, fresh flowers, and artwork — whatever strikes your fancy! It’s not clutter, it’s personality!
ENFP: The Champion
You in a nutshell: Curious, talkative, and aspirational.

ENTP: The Visionary
You in a nutshell: Clever, witty, and unconventional.
Your kitchen style is Eclectic. When it comes to designing your kitchen, rules are made to be broken. You find inspiration in all kinds of styles and periods, and you’re not afraid to mix and match. If it doesn’t work, that’s okay — you’re just going to change it again anyway.

ESTJ: The Supervisor
You in a nutshell: Traditional, methodical, and organized. You get things done.
Your kitchen style is Traditional. People often tell you your kitchen looks timeless. It’s just classic, they say, with subtle details that are interesting without being showy. Its familiarity calms you, so you can tackle your to-do list with a clear head.

ESFJ: The Provider
You in a nutshell: Generous, responsible, and practical.
Your kitchen style is Simple Chic. You love the simplicity of black and white. You appreciate clean lines and beautiful materials for their restful, harmonious qualities. The simpler the kitchen, the better, so you can focus all your attention on your loved ones.

ENFJ: The Teacher
You in a nutshell: Ambitious, empathetic, and charismatic.
Your kitchen style is Dramatic Craftsman. You want to work in a kitchen that energizes you while not sacrificing form and function. You love the natural beauty of Craftsman-style kitchens, but prefer to add a little more depth and drama with deep-red cabinets and a stunning view.

ENTJ: The Commander
You in a nutshell: Logical, assertive, and influential.
Your kitchen style is Sophisticated Industrial. Sometimes it takes a hard edge to really push things through. You appreciate strong industrial-style elements — cage pendant lights, metal stools — but you’re not interested in roughing it. Traditional cabinets (painted black) keep the look sophisticated, and only slightly intimidating — just how you like it.

Not even close. ENTJ and my kitchen has stained wood cabinets, granite counters, porcelain tile floor, and decorative and useful items collected during trips. I can’t stand black-painted cabinets. Much too dreary. I like pretty, meaningful things.
