Some say, “you are what you wear”! This includes the eyewear accessories you stick on your nose.
Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, wearing the appropriate outfit and eyewear for various occasions can make you seem confident and in charge of your life. Depending on what type of impression you want to make, wearing a nice pair of glasses can help elevate your presence when entering a room.
Personality Types and the Glasses to Match
The Meyers-Briggs Personality Test (MBPT) has been trending online over the last few years. Everyone is curious about what personality type they fit into and although there are 16 types, it is relatively easy to find yours.
To help readers learn more about themselves the MBPT has split personalities into Introverted-Extroverted, Sensing-Intuition, Thinking-Feeling, Judging-Perceiving. All of these blend together into giving you complex personality types like ISFP, INFJ, and ENTJ.
As mentioned, there are 16 of these permutations and it would be difficult to determine the glasses type for each of them in this article. So, let’s explore the aforementioned types and give you a taste of what type of personality goes with what glasses.
Also called The Artist, ISFP (Introverted-Sensing-Feeling-Perceiving) personality types are seen as peaceful and quite easy-going. Being introverts, as denoted by the I in the name, these people can easily lose energy around big groups of people.
You’ll often see them taking some time for themselves to recharge. They are the types of people that are always doing something and are concerned more with the present moment than living in the past or fantasizing about the future.
Despite their need for time alone, ISFP personalities tend to be very caring and considerate of others’ needs.
The best style of glasses for ISFP
Since they are not interested in drawing attention to themselves, ISFPs would be most comfortable wearing soft, rounded, and tinted eyewear. If you fall under this type and want to change things up a bit and make a splashing first impression, choose glasses frames that have an edge to them, like Cat Eye or geometric Aviators.
The Advocate is introverted, intuitive, in touch with their feelings, and always judges various situations. Oftentimes called The Idealist, an INFJ person is a live paradox.
They are able to hike up their sensitivity but also their logical side, to the max. There is a lot to say about these walking contradictions, but their defining characteristic is being a tolerant perfectionist.
The best style of glasses for INFJ
If you never seem to make up your mind about things completely, you’ll most likely fit into the INFJ personality type. As such, we recommend a more relaxed approach when choosing your overall look and an easy-going choice for your glasses.
Stick with round glasses for when you’re feeling nostalgic and tinted oversize frames for those times you want to appear reasonably fashionable.
The ultimate extrovert, the ENTJ (Extroverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging) personality type is called The Commander for good reason. These types get a lot of energy from social interaction and their forte lies in their very strong verbal skills.
Despite their natural flair and apparent easy-going appearance, ENTJs are excellent organizers, and you often see them planning and writing up lists. They’re natural-born leaders and are not afraid to take on new challenges.
The best style of glasses for ENTJ
If you identify yourself with this type of personality chances, and you already know what looks good on you, what glasses excuse confidence, and what glasses to wear when you’re trying to keep a low profile.
The best thing about ENFJs with regards to eyewear is that they can rock any style. You’ll probably wear sports frames when going to the gym, tinted geometric aviators when doing business, and retro round when you feel like partying.
Just because you could be an ENTJ, INFJ, ISFP, or any other type of personality as dictated by the MBPT, doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to wearing the glasses that go with your personality.
The world is your oyster when it comes to the possibilities fashion accessories present. Go out and try different styles of glasses for yourself and remember to enjoy the process.
