The Halloween Treat You Need, Based on Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Halloween is quickly approaching! It’s the season of haunting, spookiness, and, most importantly, fun.

While Halloween may look slightly different this year, you can still get your spook on and even dive into the candy bag (hey, why not? We all deserve a treat or two after this year).

It’s time to buckle in as we explore which Halloween treat you need based on your Myers-Briggs personality type!

If you haven’t done this personality test, do that first (16 Personalities has a free one that you can use). It only takes about 10-15 minutes to complete, and it can offer so much insight into how you function and work. The best part? It can also provide you with areas where you can improve, and who doesn’t want to strive for a little bit of self-improvement?

We highly recommend getting to know all about Myers-Briggs and your personality before you continue.

Already know your personality type? Great! Read ahead to find out which treat you will love the most this Halloween.

The Halloween Treat You Need, Based on Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

A Halloween graphic displaying how each candy goes with each personality type.

ISTJ - The Inspector → Candy Corn

Candy corn is kind of a “love it” or “hate it” treat, we know, but some of us love this Halloween staple (you know who you are).

With your quiet and reserved personality, you’re just the type to indulge in candy corn. You also like order in your life. Perhaps this might come in the form of candy corn’s consistently good flavor no matter where you get it from (seriously, has anyone had bad candy corn?).

ISTP - The Crafter → Lego Candy

You love hands-on stuff and new experiences. Maybe you wouldn’t mind building a few items with your candy before eating it. Lego candy offers up just that.

So, go ahead. Build away and create. Then, enjoy a quick treat.

ISFJ - The Protector → Tootsie Pops

You’re quiet and reserved - generally speaking. You like sitting back and observing.

A Tootsie Pop allows you to do just that. Sit back and enjoy your Tootsie Pop while you listen to others debate the politics of today’s world. Take in all the details (you love to do that too!).

ISFP - The Artist → Lifesavers

The artist loves colors. They love variety. Despite this, you’re easy-going and peaceful. Yet, you also like keeping your options open.

A candy, like Lifesavers, gives you just that. You have a multitude of flavors to choose from!

Someone as caring as you deserve a treat that you might be able to share with others. You never get one Lifesaver in a pack, so you can share your goodies with friends or family.

INFJ - The Advocate → Dubble Bubble Gum

You love to dream about potentially changing the world someday, and maybe you will! On top of dreaming, you often follow through as well.

During your daydreams and thoughtful evaluations of life and the world this Halloween, pop a Dubble Bubble piece of gum. Scientists say that chewing gum may help you concentrate longer, which can really get your ideas rolling into the action you crave.

INFP - The Mediator → M&Ms

Your interests are simple: You want to make the world a better place. You consider emotions when making decisions, and you want to serve humanity in the best way possible.

This is why your treat of choice is M&Ms. It’s a classic, and it’s one that you can share with others or enjoy during your much-needed alone time.

INTJ - The Architect → Milky Way Bar

Considering that you like to work alone and are rather introverted, the Milky Way bar is perfect for you. It’s one bar, so you get it all to yourself. It may also meet your high expectations when it comes to treats and chocolate.

This bar can provide you with the energy to think. It’s a no-fuss, quick, and easy snack.

INTP - The Thinker → Smarties

You are frequently described as quiet and analytical. You’re quite content to spend time alone thinking and solving problems, which is why your Halloween candy of choice is Smarties.

Not only do Smarties match your intellectual thinking capabilities, but they also come in eight delightful colors that will intrigue you. These candies will get you thinking!

ESTP - The Persuader → Hot Tamales

The Persuader is often described as outgoing and dramatic - similar to Hot Tamales! These treats spice things up. If you’re going to a social situation, that’s often exactly what you want to do.

This candy will hit the spot for you. Even if there are skeptics around you, you’ll be able to convince them to take a bite of this little red-hot treat.

ESTJ - The Director → Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

You always stick to traditional standards and laws, and you ensure things run smoothly. Nothing goes together more smoothly than peanut butter and chocolate.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are a classic Halloween treat. In fact, it’s the second most popular Halloween treat sold in the United States. It’s basically tradition!

ESFP - The Performer → Hershey Kisses

You might have been labeled the class-clown in the past because you are drawn to entertaining others.

So, why Hershey Kisses?

Hershey Kisses offer the beginnings of great jokes and fun. Plus, everyone loves them, which means if you’ve got a bag to pass around, you will undeniably be the center of attention.

ESFJ - The Caregiver → Kit Kat Bar

Your personality traits include being tender-hearted, outgoing, caring of others, organized, and loyal. In fact, your value system comes from the community.

With that said, you’ll enjoy a Kit Kat bar, which allows you to “break off a piece of that Kit Kat bar” for others (Okay, we know that was edging on a poor attempt at a joke).

This treat is all about giving back to the community where you derive all your values from. Plus, you get to enjoy it too!

ENFP - The Champion → Jolly Rancher

You are charismatic and have a zest for life like no other. You also make a great leader. This is why Jolly Ranchers are your go-to treat this Halloween. Jolly Ranchers never disappoint and always keep things light and fun.

Plus, they never get old, much like your undeniable positive energy.

ENFJ - The Giver → Skittles

You are known for being a people person. On top of that, you’re warm, outgoing, and wonderful all the way through! You give without expecting anything in return.

The perfect Halloween treat of choice for you? Skittles!

Skittles are the most popular Halloween treat in the United States. At the same time, they are people-pleasing candy. Who doesn’t love Skittles? Bring them to a small gathering or share the love by giving them out to close friends and family this Halloween.

ENTP - The Debator → Snickers

You are constantly generating new ideas and theories. Simply put, you’re a visionary. It might come as no surprise then that your Halloween treat is Snickers. Snickers offer a whole load of ideas and yumminess in one bite.

The worlds’ best-selling candy bar is full of caramel, peanuts, nougat, and chocolate. Safe to say, it will get you thinking. And it keeps things interesting, which can help you mull over that next big plan or debate.

ENTJ - The Commander → Starburst

You don’t get stuck in the here-and-now. In fact, you’re more likely to think ahead and into the future, which is why Starburst is perfect for you.

This chewy candy adds a burst of flavor! This might just get you lost in thought about what’s to come as you allow the candy to melt in your mouth.

Grab Your Treat This Halloween

You deserve to indulge this Halloween! Seriously, it’s been a rough year.

So, go ahead, and have a treat or two. Your Myers-Briggs Personality results open a world of self-discovery - including what type of candy or chocolate you might prefer around this spooky holiday.
