Which plant best suits your personality?


I think all of us at some point in life have taken a personality test or sought help in astrology to understand ourselves a little better. It's not just about knowing what we like or what motivates us, because these are things that can change over the years, but about understanding who we are at a much deeper level, our true essence. Knowing ourselves offers us valuable information to guide our lives, even to choose the perfect plant. Believe it or not, there's an ideal plant for everyone, and your personality type can help you find it.


Choosing

a

plant is almost like choosing a pet. plants are living beings, depending on you for what they need to live, so it's important to understand that you should adopt those that suit your lifestyle. In fact, when people say that they don't have a hand to take care of plants and that they all die, the vast majority of the time what happens is that they have chosen a plant that is not compatible with their personality and way of organizing their life and time.


Being honest with yourself, understanding how you work, what you like, and what you're willing to do is essential to be able to find a plant that suits you perfectly. Knowing your personality can help simplify this task, as it gives you the clues you need to know what your approach to the experience of life is like and how you might approach it. As a matter of course, you can take care of a plant. For example, if you have a vibrant, risk-taking personality that is always on the move and you never know what time you'll be coming home or if you'll be going on an adventure for a week, you don't want to have a high-maintenance plant like a Fittonia that requires frequent watering and tending to; but a succulent like Sansevieria would come in handy.


The first step then is to take a personality test. It can be the 16 Personalities Test (which is very accurate and fun) or the Big 5 Test so that you get to know a little more about yourself in depth and learn which traits are dominant in the way you act. With that done, you can read our list and go for your perfect plant.

Personality

encompasses a lot of characteristics that make you a unique person. The way you act, the things that move you emotionally, the way you reason in the face of a situation, are all part of your personality and are shaped by the interaction you have throughout your life with biological factors and the environment. A person can have different traits, which together make up the personality.


For this reason, it is normal to feel that you identify with different aspects, even when they may seem contradictory. For example, you may be an introvert but with a very cheerful temperament. That said, if you feel like your personality encompasses two or more traits, don't stop because you can have all those plants if you want to. To make the process easier, we've created two categories: personality traits and lifestyle, to help you choose the one that works best for you.


According to personality

traits

  • Extroverted and cheerful

People with this personality type are very curious, love challenges and new experiences and love to be original. If you're an extrovert, you're not going to identify with a boring, simple plant, you're going to want something that reflects your bubbly, fun personality. Some of the plants that will come in handy are:


- Ctenanthe Burle Marxii: It is a type of Marantha that has very curious patterns on its leaves. It can get very lush and has amazing colors.

They are amazing individuals, the kind who go out to buy something and end up with 5 new friends and who are able to make others feel comfortable and at ease. For them, the most compatible plants are:

  • Introverts

are those individuals who prefer small groups and need alone time to recharge their batteries. An introvert feels out of place in activities where there are too many people and prefers to have time to cultivate their inner world alone. They are wonderful people, because they achieve a deep and valuable level of introspection, which is why they can give the best advice. For these people, the most appropriate plants are:


- Peace Lily: these plants bloom all year round and also have purifying properties. They have a minimalist, beautiful flower that stands out shyly from among the deep green leaves. It adapts to any environment, even if it has low light. It symbolizes peace, confidence and purity making it an ideal gift for someone who is going through a difficult time or a big change in their life.

  • Shy A shy

person is usually reserved, has higher standards for being able to trust someone and may find it more difficult to interact in social situations, especially when it comes to taking the initiative because they have high levels of anxiety.
