- Fire Signs

Home Wellness Tips According to Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type
Your Myers-Briggs personality type can depend on whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, or more of a feeler or thinker. Your personality type will, of course, change the way you make happiness within your own home.
Architects (INTJ), logicians (INTP), commanders (ENTJ) or debaters (ENTP) are strong-willed, intellectual people who desire innovation. These are practical thinkers who solve problems, like tidying a space for optimal efficiency. Soothe your analytical mind at home by reading a book, painting a room or solving a puzzle.
Campaigners (ENFP), mediators (INFP), protagonists (ENFJ) and advocates (INFJ) are charismatic and altruistic — craving interpersonal relationships and communication. To find wellness at home, host a social event like a dinner party with close friends, but don’t forget to find some alone time for yourself and take a break from external stimulation. When you start to feel down, try these journal prompts to mental health and anxiety!
Those who are dedicated, protective, and fact-minded fall under the umbrella of being sentinels — logisticians (ISTJ), defenders (ISFJ), executives (ESTJ) and consuls (ESFJ). These Myers-Briggs personality types love problem-solving and improving the state of the world, which can sometimes be overwhelming. Make a happy home by taking a digital fitness class or turning off your brain with a movie.
Explorers are composed of virtuosos (ISTP), adventurers (ISFP), entrepreneurs (ESTP) and entertainers (ESFP) and are the most adventurous personality types and thrive off spontaneity. These Myers-Briggs personalities may benefit from remote work so they don’t have to have a set schedule. Spend work days on the porch to get clarity and inspiration.
