Do you love discovering new foods or are you happy with the tried-and-tested favourites? Are you a solo diner or a socialite? We’re digging deep into your foodie habits, based on your MBTI personality test!
As imaginative and strategic thinkers, INTJs are the foodies you trust to make sure everything is going according to plan. Worried about not having a table at your favourite restaurant? They’re way ahead of you. Get your INTJ bestie to help you find the perfect spot for your next dinner gathering – they can tell you the best places in Singapore for Japanese, Italian, and then some.
If you’re looking for someone who thinks out of the box, no one fits the bill better than an INTP. Known to be innovative inventors who love discovering delicious new spots for their friends, INTPs will make sure that your next dining experience is always an unforgettable one – even if it’s a little quirky, sometimes.
Known as the “Commander” of the 16 personalities, ENTJs are bold, imaginative, and determined foodies who will always make sure that their dining experiences are impeccable. Always trust an ENTJ for the best decisions when it comes to the perfect dining experience. Whether it’s their favourite barbecue spot or a hunt for some of the most unique cuisines on the island, an ENTJ never falls short in discovering the best dining choices for a good night out.
No one goes against the norm quite like an ENTP does when it comes to food. Smart and curious, ENTPs are foodies who can’t resist a gastronomical challenge, and they’re always on a hunt for something that defies convention. How to spot an ENTP, you ask? You’ll probably find them setting up camp at fusion spots and the latest eateries that are under the radar. Not that they won’t give the mainstream restaurants a try, though – it’s just that they’ve probably been there before it became popular.
An INFJ foodie may not always have strong opinions when it comes to eating in a group, but #trust – these gourmands know what they like and what they don’t like. They don’t just follow the crowd either; as careful planners, they prefer to do ample research on what they’re about to fork out good money for.
Next time, ask your INFJ friend for their favourite restaurants: you might be surprised with the list that they’ve amassed over time, most of which are hidden spots and quiet enclaves with some of the best eats in town.
Ahh, INFP – kind, altruistic foodies who will always make sure that others are satisfied and well-fed before they are. They will always choose the best spots for their loved ones, sometimes forgoing their own food preference just to make sure everyone has a good time. For these foodies, restaurants with amazing food that can accommodate large groups are the perfect hangouts. If there’s one thing these foodies love more than eating it’s the fact that they’re eating with their favourite people.
As a foodie, ENFJs are always ready to share their favourite spots with their families and friends. With their charismatic and inspiring qualities, it’s easy to trust them anyway – after all, they do have impeccable tastes. From the best bars in Asia to the best meals under $30, they’re most likely to be ones to discover a good eatery before it gets famous.
Know a foodie who’s enthusiastic, creative, and a sociable free spirit? They’re most likely to be ENFPs. These type of diners live to eat, so they’re always up for enjoying any kind of food that comes their way. They love getting creative too, so you’ll find them at establishments that allow them to customise their food such as Wrap & Roll, Alt. Pizza, and so forth.
You know that one foodie in your group whom everyone counts on for restaurant recommendations that fit any price points and are guaranteed to satisfy? They’re most probably an ISTJ. You won’t find ISTJ foodies wasting a single calorie on bad food because these epicureans know where to go, the right dishes to order, and the vouchers to score so that you can enjoy yourselves to the fullest without breaking the bank.
There’s no doubting that family and friends come first for the dedicated ISFJs. Always ready to defend, nothing comes in between them and their loved ones. Loyal to a fault, ISFJs rarely venture beyond the restaurants that they know and love. Sometimes, you can even find them dining alone rather than trying somewhere new. Not that they mind, though – they might even have a list of places where they can have a moment’s peace all to themselves.
Does your group suffer from the inability to decide what to eat? It’s about high time you get an ESTJ on board to help ease the stress. As excellent admins, they’re unsurpassed at managing things – and people. You can count on your ESTJ buddies to handle everything, from booking a restaurant to making sure everyone’s on time. These conscientious souls will also always have their vouchers on hand to get great discounts!
When dining out with an ESFJ, you can rest assured that your dining needs are well taken care of. From the best dining spots for families to a list of GST-free establishments, an ESFJ knows them all like the back of their hands. If there’s one thing you can count on an ESFJ for, it’s their extraordinary skill to find the best hot spots to please the crowd.
These savvy foodies make the most out of what they have. Bold and practical experimenters who are masters of every tool they can get their hands on, you can count on an ISTP to have all kinds of foodie apps at the ready. They’re always prepared to share the scoop on all the latest popular joints to visit each month. As conscientious foodies, they’re not about that #wastelife – they probably have their month’s dining planned according to the latest deals they can get their hands on.
While many foodies are more cautious in the way that they spend on food, ISFPs enjoy the finer things in life. Say the words ‘molecular gastronomy’ and watch as their faces light up. These foodies love to explore and experience new ways to dine, not to mention their obsession with the latest award-winning eats around town. The Michelin Guide? Subscribed. Just heard about The Monocle’s first Dining & Drinking Directory? They’ve already read it, cover to cover.
ESTPs make wonderful hosts for gatherings. They know what works for the group that they’re entertaining, and they love to put on a good show. Smart and extremely perceptive, these connoisseurs of good food love living on the edge and are not afraid to bring you along for the ride. On their list of go-to places include the hottest omakase spots in Singapore, bars with sweeping views, and more.
If there’s anyone who can put the F in Fun, it’s an ESFP! Energetic, spontaneous, and downright enthusiastic, life is never boring around them. On the other hand, dining with these foodies may require a little bit more effort than most. Don’t expect to find ESFPs at the usual restaurants though; they prefer to take things up a notch at unique establishments that give their dining experience a little thrill.
