What Flower Matches Your Personality?

Posted by Libbi Cohen on 5th Aug 2022

Everyone has a flower that matches their personality. Like humans, every flower is unique and has its own strengths, weaknesses and beauties. Each flower has its own set of characteristics, distinct from any other flower and it’s as easy to apply personality traits to plants as we do to humans. If you’re looking to give flowers as a gift, wouldn’t it be special to find the perfect flower that reflects the uniqueness of the recipient’s personality?

16 Flower Personality Types

One type of personality classification that is often used is the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator. It aims to identify a person’s personality type, strengths and performances. Today, it is one of the most widely used psychological inventories in the world.

Based on the answers to the inventory’s questions, people are identified as having one of 16 personalities. The ultimate aim of this inventory is so that people are able to determine their own personalities and better understand their unique characteristics. If you know your personality type or that of your loved ones, keep reading to find out which flower you are, based on your Myers-Briggs personality type.

Logisticians are serious and reserved. People with this personality type are well-organised and have a good attention to detail. They are planners and are responsible. They also have a good reputation for being reliable and trustworthy.

The Peruvian Lily is an excellent match for a “logistician”. They are well-known for being the perfect flower for a “thank you” gesture. They have large, sturdy petals which reflect reliability and trust, making them a wonderful gift for those who are reliable, trustworthy and helpful towards others.

2: The Defender

People with this personality type are friendly and responsible. They are work oriented and are committed to meeting their obligations. They are also loyal and caring. Their care for others means that they are non-confrontational.

The perfect flower for this personality type is a daisy. Daisies give out peaceful, positive vibes, making them a friendly-looking flower. Their cheerful nature represents people who have the “defender” personality type as they represent people who are caring, virtuous and friendly.

3: The Advocate

These people are serious and hardworking. Aside from being logical and conscientious, they are also compassionate and value strong relationships with others. While they are very fond of people, they also like having their own space to wind down and recharge.

Daffodils are an excellent choice of flower for those with the personality type of an “advocate”. They are associated with hope, strength and resilience. Not only are these flowers the perfect choice for those who are strong-willed and hardworking, but they are also a great gift for those who believe in others and value relationships.

People with these personality types are independent and confident. They are analytical, creative and motivated. They prefer to rely on logic rather than feelings. Due to their high expectations of themselves, they are regarded as perfectionists.
