How Your Decor Reveals Your Personality

Updated: Mar 25, 2022

Behind your front door, your space, and how you live and decorate can tell about who you are, according to an article by Marcia Rosen, with Joanna Magda Polenz, MD. In a fourteen-question test by the authors they claim they can tell if you're: A pragmatist, a practical and productive person that sees beauty in functional things. A sensualist, who chooses their belongings for their aesthetic appeal. A perfectionist, who has a sense of order. An adapter, whose goal is to have a harmonious home with everyone's tastes welcome. Or the extrovert, who is hard-working and #ambitious, and eager to show the world who they are and who they hope to become.

The questions in the quiz task;

  1. What are the walls of your living room covered with?

  2. If you decided to give your living room a facelift how would you do it?

  3. What do you do to spruce up your #bedroom?

  4. What would a visitor in your home most likely see on your #coffee table?

  5. Are your closets organized?

  6. What was the first thing you bought for your home or apartment?

  7. If you had extra money to spend on your living room what would you invest in?

  8. If you have wallpaper in your #kitchen or bathroom, what kind is it?

  9. What else do you keep in your garage besides your car?

  10. If you have children, what are their rooms furnished with?

  11. If you have an attic or a storage space, what kind of treasures might one find there?

  12. If you have a cabinet above the stove, what do you keep up there?

  13. What are the floors of your family room covered with?

  14. What do you keep on the counter or shelves by the bathroom #sink?

Does your house express the real you? If you were to take the test, based on your score, the results of this test would tell you. Of course, this isn't an exact science, but it might be a fun test to take with your family and friends just for kicks. The choices you make might reveal the kind of person you are. If your family and friends are anything like mine, you might disagree with the #results.
