The plants and flowers we grow at home speak about our characters
Conscientious people who strive for perfection grow Aloia vera and are careful about their own choices. They like to help others. The study also says that conscientious people never stop caring for plants.
The flowers and plants we grow in the home say a lot about the owner’s character
Plants grown in jars bring life to the interior of the house (and apartment), relieve stress and bring good mood to the growers and other household members. Researchers have linked certain plants with the character traits of their owners. Thus, they highlighted 5 important character traits (pleasantness, kindness, openness, conscientiousness and authenticity). Thus, “Cinch Home Service” conducted an interview with 1,000 respondents in order to find out which of the above-mentioned characteristics suit certain people. The interviewees were plant breeders. As part of the interview, the interviewees completed the “Five Personality” test.
Based on the results, Cinch developed a character assessment quiz based on the plants people have. In this way, it was possible to find out which plants/flowers correspond to certain character traits of the grower. Research shows that certain plants correspond to different character traits.
- For people under stress, for example, growing and caring for plants is a way of relaxation and symbolic care for one’s own being.
- Succulents and the “snake” plant (mother-in-law’s tongue or Latin Sanseveria) suit people who don’t have enough time, who are always tense and in a hurry and yet love to grow plants.
- Complex plants (like a fig tree) are for people who want only the best in life, i.e. for perfectionists. Figs are difficult to grow and care for. Figs need a precise amount of sunlight and water to stay healthy.
- Ficus suits extroverted people. These people like plants that need special care. These people grow plants for pleasure, but also to ease their active and fast-paced life. The Dracena plant also suits extroverts. The appearance of this plant stands out in the crowd just like open and extroverted people. People who have dracaena in their home are sincere, authentic and always open to new acquaintances and changes.
- Obedient people like growing ivy (viburnum). Viburnum is a plant that thrives in low light and does not require frequent watering.
- Conscientious people who strive for perfection grow Aloia vera and are careful about their own choices. They like to help others, so this may be the reason for the medicinal appeal of the plant. Conformity is associated with consideration and generosity. Choosing a low-maintenance plant (Aloia Vera) helps these people feel successful. The study also says that conscientious people never stop caring for plants.
- Plants that grow and adapt in any environment (cacti, succulents, spider plant or green lily) are associated with openness. They grow in a wide range of environments and still do well. People who grow these types of plants have a great ability to cope with stress.
