One of the most popular things on social media these days is figuring out your personality type. A simple scroll through Buzzfeed and you’ll find at least ten quizzes that will tell you what your ideal job is based on your Myer Briggs type or will guess what kind of potato you are based on your choices. Finding out who we are through silly quizzes is all the rage and a fun way to pass the time. So we thought we’d give it a try!
See, this post isn’t a quiz but it does blend science with design, to help you find the vanity that best matches your personality type. For this, we are going to use the Nine Enneagram personality types. The Enneagram personality types is a system of nine different personality types that help us better understand ourselves and others in our life. You can take this test to find out what your Enneagram type is if you don’t know it already.
Now let’s get to those vanities!
Type 1 – The Perfectionist
A Type 1 person is just as the name says, a perfectionist. They are principled, self controlled, and do things with purpose. For a Type 1 we recommend our Avalon vanity finished in White Acrylic with our Touch to Open option and a Matte White Guildstone countersink. Nothing says perfection better than smooth, clean lines, uncluttered drawer faces, and a top that is as soft as it is functional. Simple, elegant, and perfect.
Type 2 – The Helper
Type 2, the Helper, is someone who will always put the needs of others above their own. They are kind-hearted people who are generous and can be a bit of a people pleaser. For a Type 2 we suggest our Corrado vanity finished in Natural Reclaimed Oak with Matte Black Edge Pulls and a White Gloss Guildstone top. We also think our Glass Divider system would be a good addition for a Type 2 to include in their vanity. The unique yet warm look of the finish paired with the simplistic hardware and helpful storage solutions create a piece that is both soothing and helpful for all who use it.
Type 3 – The Achiever
Type 3 people are the go getters, success oriented, and driven. They are image conscious and are always on the move. For a bathroom vanity, they need a piece that is just as bold as they are, which is why we suggest our Edwin vanity finished in Granite Walnut and Satin Brass with Square Ring Pulls and a Pure White Quartz countertop. The metal base and square pulls add a flash of excitement to the functional and dependable drawers while the Quartz top brings a dramatic flair with the glittering bits of stone.
Type 4 – The Romantic
A Type 4 person is a true romantic at heart. They are sensitive and expressive and can be a little moody at times. That’s why we suggest our Chelsea vanity finished in Nonchalant and with our DBAR pulls in Satin Nickel. This vanity has beautiful and delicate woodwork over top a mirror that adds just the right amount of drama to it’s charm. And the subtle finish is perfectly subtle for those moody days.
Type 5 – The Investigator
Our Type 5 friends are the thinkers. They can be intense but they are perceptive and innovative. For a Type 5 we suggest our Sydney vanity finished in Natural Walnut. The warm, earthy tones of the wood with the simplicity of the vanity (and the unique integrated finger pull) makes this piece an intuitive and cerebral fit for these deep thinkers. And the drawer in a drawer storage hidden behind the single drawer face appeals to their more secretive side.
Type 6 – The Loyalist
Type 6, the loyalist, are committed and responsible people. They are engaging and security oriented. Who they are is who they are and they don’t plan on changing that anytime soon. Type 6 people are the ones you can count on, that’s why we suggest our most tried and true vanity, the Hayden. With it’s solid wood construction and elegant turned wood legs, you simply cannot go wrong with this piece. For the best fit for a Type 6, finish your Hayden vanity in Cerused Oak with Satin Nickel Round Ring pulls and Cap Feet.
Type 7 – The Enthusiast
A Type 7 person is extremely extroverted, optimistic, and spontaneous. They are playful and aren’t afraid to take risks. For these fun loving people we suggest our Lydia vanity. This vanity may look demure but it can pack a punch. It’s bold and dramatic thanks to the sleek 1/4″ metal inlay but subtle enough that it can be teamed up with a loud and wild wallpaper, adding just the right amount of temperance these crazy kids need.
Type 8 – The Challenger
A Type 8 is a strong willed person who is confident in all that they do. Their strong personality is why we think they would love our Winston vanity. The bold look of the metal base and framing is eye catching that perfectly reflects the strength of character that a Type 8 possesses. Finished in Sea Serpent and Polished Nickel or Black Oak and Burnished Brass, this vanity will always make a statement.
Type 9 – The Peacemaker
Last but certainly not least we have our Type 9 personalities. These people are the most trusting and accepting people that you will ever meet. They are always looking to keep the peace, whether it be between other people or themselves. So to help keep a Type 9 at maximum peace, we suggest our Verso Tall vanity finished in Natural Walnut. The finish is soothing and the simple drawer faces keep things calm, making this the perfect peaceful piece.
