You might think of personality tests as a way to find deeper meaning within, or learn more about those closest to you. While these are both true, your Myers Briggs type isn’t just useful for learning more about yourself; equally importantly, it can also help you find the perfect winter accessory to add to your collection this year. That’s right; for every virtue, vice, or deep-seated strength your Myers Briggs type can reveal about you, it can also show you the hat, scarf, or other winter accessory that is calling to the deepest part of your psyche. I love the Myers Briggs not just as a tool for deeper understanding, but also as a way to have a little fun, and I hope you feel the same!
So, without further ado, here’s the winter accessory you should seriously consider adding to your collection this year based on your personality type.
Sensitive, spontaneous and unique, you love your music as much as you love a quiet walk in the snow. These earmuffs will keep you warm while you’re carefully curating the soundtrack to your life.
2. INFP: This Massive Scarf From RIIQIICHY
As an INFP type on the Myers Briggs, you’ve got a rich inner world and are happiest with some time and space to yourself. Nothing will manifest the feeling of being in your own cozy little space better than a gigantic fluffy scarf like this one.
Spend hours getting excited about how nobody knows what you could have in your secret scarf pocket and stashing random things in it. Realize hours later that, while you have a pack of gum, a cool rock you found, and a magic trick of some kind, you forgot to actually bring your money, phone, or any form of ID. Do not allow this to ruin your moment.
Is having an electric blanket for your car overkill? Only if you’ve got something against being warm and cozy. As a Myers Briggs type, ENFJs are nurturing, organized, and not afraid to go big when it comes to comfort. Plus, you’ll be more than happy to share when your loved ones inevitably want to get in on the car coziness.
You’re as passionate as you are committed to your personal style, which means that if you’re staying inside until spring then at least it’s going to be cute.

While your Myers Briggs type can tell you so many important things about your deepest, truest self, it doesn’t always have to be serious! Some days your four letters might point you towards a struggle to overcome or a trait to appreciate, but they can also be used to highlight the fun things as well. I hope that today the Myers Briggs has brought you closer to the perfect winter accessory for you.
