Finding a workout plan you can actually stick to is the million-dollar challenge. Your friends tell you they're obsessed with cycling or hiking or rowing, so you try it. But after two weeks, you're back to your sedentary lifestyle. What gives?

Before you blame yourself, consider this: It might have something to do with your personality. In reality, we know that the real secret to sticking with a fitness regimen long-term is good old-fashioned daily discipline. But experts agree that finding a workout that meshes with your personality is also key. Acknowledging your social tendencies when choosing your activity of choice makes it easier to stick to it regularly, fosters a more enjoyable experience overall, and will make you feel inherently more comfortable while working out.

To help you find a fitness plan that will complement who you are as a person, we analyzed the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types and carefully selected a workout routine to accompany each one. (If you don't know what your personality type is yet, then take the Myers-Briggs test.) Keep scrolling to find out your ideal workout based on your levels of introversion, intuition, and more.
