    I could care less where my furniture goes. I really don't make any of the decisions as to where to put any particular piece because I could care less. I usually just want my wife to make up her mind as to where she wants it so I can move it. Not that she moves it very often but occasionally she decides something would be better some place else. But once anything starts moving, I know I will be moving things from here to there for the rest of the night. Then she always asks how it looks. It's those times my standard answer is "Looks ok to me but then again I thought it looked ok the other way too." I think that response causes her to have me move it again but I'm not sure.

    Am I a typical INFP to want to keep my things where they are? She never changes things around at my home, but she has made references that this would look better here or there. I don't want to change things around. I'm always glad when she leaves. (I know, I am not a good friend) My sister has never offered her opinion about where my furniture sits. Yaay!

    Okay, I feel better.
    I'm the complete opposite.

    I really enjoy moving my room around. I like to find the most efficient placement of all my furniture, while keeping in mind how it meshes with my feelings, the overall aesthetics it produces and itsflow. Flow as in maneuverability. E.g. Can I easily maneuver between my computer to the door or to my bed. In my current house, I've probably arranged my room around five or six times in a four month period. I'm pretty happy about my setup as of now, but again, not that it's final or anything like that. I dislike knowing that the placement of things are set in stone but on the contrary, I like knowing that most things are relative/subjective and context is always changing.

    I hardly own any furniture that isn't hand-me-downs or something I've been given. There hasn't been a lot of choice in terms of style, dimension etc. It's held together by resolve and my incredible, eclectic sense of style but really, I wouldn't be able to move things around if I wanted to - there are no new positions for the main pieces, and the small pieces are usually altered or moved due to their functionality value. But if I could move them, I probably would. I love the variation. I hate when other people move their furniture too often. I really dislike bumping into things of a hard, wooden persuasion in the middle of the night, when you couldn't be bothered to turn on the lights. And there is always that moment, that sickly feeling, where you're wondering what the hell it is that collided with your kneecap and whether or not you'll be able to take an extra step.

    My mom frequently moves her furniture. Perhaps my dislike stems from the number of times I've been required to move stuff over the years.

    Hehe, I could have written that. It took me several months to arrange the furniture in my room to my satisfaction, but now that everything is in it's "right" place, I have no desire to move anything around. I like it the way it is. This is just speaking of the furniture, though. I do move decorations and knick knacks around every so often, just to change things up a little.

    The only reason i'd move fruniture is to have more space. (aka: throwing unused crap out)

    So mostly cleaning.

    Thanks to all who have responded to this -- it's been very intereresting to hear who enjoys or doesn't enjoy moving their items around. It's just been a pet peeve of mine, and based on the various answers I got here, I doubt a preference is made based on personality type.

    I wonder what type your wife is? I'm not interested in rearranging furniture either. However I asked my wife, who is ISTJ, and she's keen on rearranging furniture quite reguarly. I asked why? The reason was that's it's an excuse to have a good clean and tidy up ( haven't yet found out what tidying up is though, I must google it).

    I used to like moving my furniture around when I was younger and a bit restless, but now it's just a pain, lol. My mum's an INFP and she likes to keep things in the same place. I do too, lol.

    I think it's fun to arrange furniture in a way that nobody would ever expect. It still has to be practical and functional, but my ideas of those things are often quite differenty than everybody else's. It's the novelty of having a completely bizarre arrangement that is fun. I could probably have a lot more fun with it if I built my own house and I built the furniture in it. Since I didn't design my living room or the furniture in it, there's not very many ways I can change things around. I only move things about every six months.

    Sometimes I'll put the couch so that it slants inwards toward the rest of the room. Who says things have to be up against the wall? I don't follow rules... Of course, some "rules" like that keep things better, but I'll never stop looking for ways to break the rules and create something better.

    With me, it's not impulsive though. If my GF wanted to keep everything in the same place, I would be fine with it. There's a lot more than furniture that I can manipulate and change.
