Your Feng Shui Personality Type

Your Feng Shui Personality Type

What is your basic Feng Shui personality type? What are your dominant emotions or qualities? And how do they affect your living space and your life?

Find out if you are a Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, or Wood type, right here:

FIRE PERSONALITY: Fire character traits are love, passion, leadership, spirituality, insight, dynamism, aggression, intuition, reason, and expressiveness. Common Fire emotions and qualities are excitement, joy, vanity, jealousy, frustration, regret, grief from loss of love, and disappointment in relationships. The Fire personality is direct–right out front. Are you funny and impulsive? Prone to becoming scattered? Known for your eclectic tastes? Do you enjoy decorating with unique art pieces and treasures from around the world? You may be a Fire personality.

EARTH PERSONALITY: Earth character traits are stability, practicality, reliability, industriousness, empathy, honesty, kindness, and prudence. Just as we take in nutrients through the stomach, we assimilate life experiences through the element earth. Earth emotions and qualities are pensiveness, worry, thoughtfulness, instinctive awareness, and reflection. Do you value friendship and have a reputation for being kind, nurturing and grounded? Do you love a comfortable, cozy room with thick rugs, stuffed furniture, and fancy decorations? Do you tend to collect too many objects and create clutter? When you are out of balance, do you start collecting and hoarding things, trying to get a sense of security by surrounding yourself with stuff? You may be an Earth personality.

METAL PERSONALITY: Metal character traits include strength, independence, focus, intensity, righteousness, and fluency in speech. Common Metal emotions are gratitude, insecurity, inability to achieve parental expectations, or a lack of confidence. The Metal personality is very determined and powerful, with a tendency to be cool and reserved. Do you strive to create order in your environment, enjoying a room that is perfect and orderly? Do you prefer clean, minimalist design and dislike waste and excessive frilliness? You may be a Metal personality.

WATER PERSONALITY: Water character traits are creativity, wisdom, sensitivity, reflection, persuasion, effectiveness, and desire for life and sex. Water types value family and social contacts and possess the ability to attract others. Are you seen as mysterious? Do you tend to internalize your feelings and think and ponder too much? Do you struggle with emotions such as fear, indecisiveness, vacillation, and uncertainty? Is your preference for a room that is dark and cool, a quiet place for rest? Do you seek ways to transform your bathroom into a nurturing environment for healing baths? You may be a Water personality.

WOOD PERSONALITY: Wood character traits include good decision-making skills, idealism, imagination, compassion, and the ability to create change. Common Wood emotions are kindness, tension, criticism of self and others, discouragement, regret, and repressed anger related to thwarted affection. Do you find yourself often taking bold actions and initiating new projects? Are you focused, active, driven, and competitive? Do you appreciate the feelings of growth and expansion that come from a room full of lush plants and fresh flowers? You may be a Wood personality.
