What is the Myers Briggs personality test?If you aren’t familiar with the Myers Briggs personality test, it’s a famous method of analyzing personality by dividing people into 16 categories based on their preferences between four binary characteristics. The test attempts to determine whether your primary personality preference is extroverted or introverted, sensing or intuitive, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving. Each of these preferences is represented by a letter to make up your Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). (For example, an introverted, sensing, feeling, and judging personality is referred to as an ISFJ). If you don’t know your MBTI, take the Myers Briggs personality test before reading further.
Wedding dress shopping differs by personality type.First, let’s break it down by the four characteristics and what they mean about your decision-making when it comes to wedding dress shopping. Of course, every individual is different, so don’t be surprised if you find you disagree with us. Maybe you didn’t get an accurate test result, or you’re somewhere in the middle on one (or more) of the characteristics. In addition, there’s quite a lot of variation between members of the same MBTI—not every ENTJ is exactly the same!
Are you Introverted or Extroverted?Introverts tend to choose clothing by comfort. This could mean physically comfortable or the style they feel most comfortable in. Extroverts tend to use their style to communicate their personality, how they feel, or an image they want to portray.
Are you Intuitive or Sensing?Sensing is all about the details, like intricate beading or the perfect accessory. Intuition is more concerned about the big picture and tends to forego accessories. N’s are more likely to consider future implications of a decision (for example, will the fit of this dress make movement difficult?), whereas S’s live in the moment.
Do you prefer Thinking or Feeling?Feelers let emotions and expectations from family and friends influence their style decision. A Thinker will analyze and narrow down choices based on certain criteria, such as what type of fabric makes the most sense, what silhouette is the most flattering, etc.
Do you prefer Perceiving or Judging?Judgers are more likely to have an organized plan or system for choosing their dress, whereas Perceivers are more likely to act spontaneously. A J is also more likely to follow rules about wedding dress shopping, such as timeline recommendations and wearing white. A P is more likely to do things on their own terms, such as consider a dress that isn’t specifically advertised as a ‘bridal gown.'
