There are many factors that we must consider when determining which season is best. We may enjoy one season because it is our birthday, or we may prefer a particular temperature and weather. However, one often overlooked aspect is personality.
I believe that certain MBTI types are best suited for different types. Let’s investigate:
Firstly, Summer time strongly corresponds with the ESTP type. Se types are considered the fun, in the moment types, and most people think of the beach, swimming, the park or other outdoor activities to enjoy the sunny temperature. Summer is indeed one of the best times to experience the outdoors and to embrace new opportunities. For example, on a recent visit to America during mid winter, many opportunities were closed off- they were only available in summer. Summer is perfect for the fun loving Se types, supported by the competitive and fun nature that Ti’s often enjoy. This leaves me with the conclusion of the ESTP being best suited for summer.
Secondly, Autumn correlates with the ISTJ type. As Si types enjoy practicality and simplicity, Autumn is the perfect season as the weather remains consistently safe, not too hot or cold, as well as being very repetitive without anything extreme out of the order or out of reach due to the weather. Often described as the safe (and sometimes boring!) types, ISXJ’s would feel right at home in Autumn! Additionally, T types see the logical benefits to Autumn, whereas the more emotional F types may become more easily depressed by the Autumn temperature. Therefore, ISTJ types are best suited for Autumn.
Thirdly, winter is best suited for INFP’s. During the cold weather, many people are naturally more inclined to stay indoors, and hence this makes the perfect weather for introverts. In particular, introverted intuitive types most probably enjoy this time to invest time in their creative projects, and to give them some time from the extroverted sensing dominated society. Additionally, many Fi types would embrace the uncertainty and excitement of the season. Therefore, INFP’s are best suited for Winter.
Finally, spring is best suited for ESFJ’s. Much like autumn, spring is another in between season in temperature- it is consistent, and not on either extreme scale of temperature (not too hot or too cold like summer and winter respectively.) Therefore, the Si type would enjoy this weather. However, the extroverted, Fe types, who also go for consistency, would not enjoy the ugly, lifeless autumn. Dominant Fe types (particularly ESFJ’s) enjoy beauty, hence the ESFJ type most strongly correlates with spring.
