This is something that can be frustrating to others, but INFPs can also be very considerate and warm roommates which can balance it out for the right people.

INTPs as roommates really just want to have their own space respected. They enjoy being able to keep to themselves most of the time and become frustrated if this is not accepted by others.

ISFJs as roommates often become the mothering ones of the household. They want to take care of everyone and make sure their roommates are safe and happy.

ISTPs as roommates enjoy having a good time but they also want to have their space. They do their best to enjoy the presence of their roommates and really just want them to respect when they want to be alone. ISTPs really just want to have a sense of freedom without feeling like they constantly have to answer to their roommates and do as they say. They can sometimes have trouble keeping up with certain chores, but only the ones they don’t find all that important.


ESTPs as roommates can be a bit messy sometimes, not always capable of keeping up with their chores. They aren’t always great at being organized and can find themselves struggling to clean up sometimes.

As roommates they try to be considerate but they can sometimes be a bit more demanding than they realize.


ISFPs as roommates do their best to be caring towards those around them, but they can be caught up in their own little worlds sometimes. ISFPs can have a hard time having to maintain household chores since they don’t enjoy having to follow rules and demands of others. They become so caught up in their own imaginations and thoughts that they don’t really find it easy to focus on doing the things others expect from them at the exact moment they demand it.


ESFPs as roommates are often energetic and fun people to be around, but they aren’t always great at chores. They might not be good at cleaning up after themselves when others expect them too, but they are good at lifting others up when they are feeling down. ESFPs know how to have a good time and want to be able to be around people who are willing to join in on the fun with them. ESFPs might not be great at realizing when someone wants their space, but their intentions are good.
