Which song gets you in the holiday spirit?

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

December is here, which means that you're probably celebrating this joyous month by wearing all the ugly sweaters, decorating like crazy, and of course, listening to plenty of cheerful Christmas songs.

The holiday season just isn't complete without our favorite jingles and let's be real — some of us have probably been jamming to them since Halloween ended.

While there is a ton of class Christmas music to listen to during the season, there might be one song in particular that you find yourself replaying over and over.

There are some songs that we're just drawn to, maybe because they remind us of certain memories associated with that song, or because it resonates with certain of your dominant personality traits or characteristics or because we just really, really like it.

Maybe listening to Jingle Bells more than once drives you up a wall, but for whatever reason, you just can't seem to ever get enough of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town — and it could all come down to personality types.

Depending on what your Myers-Briggs personality type is — according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) — there is one specific holiday song that you will absolutely be playing on repeat this season.

Sometimes, a song just fits our personality like a glove, and this really seems to be no truer than when it comes to holiday tunes.

So what's your special holiday song?

It's the one that best fits with your personality type and that you never, ever get sick of hearing.

Here is the one Christmas song on YouTube you'll be listening to over and over again this season, based on your Myers-Briggs personality type.

INTJ: There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays — Perry Como

An INTJ is a focused, rational type who is usually shrouded in mystery. INTJs also carry an aura of elegance around them, so you probably won't find one ringing in the holiday season with a fast, quick beat tempo.

Instead, an INTJ will most likely be found spending the season curled up by a warm fire at home and listening to a holiday classic like There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays while possibly planning their next devilish scheme. We kid, INTJ, we kid!

INTP: White Christmas — Michael Bublé (ft. Shania Twain)

If you're an INTP, then you've probably been dreaming of a white Christmas since the beginning of November. So, obviously you have White Christmas playing on a loop right now and you'll be listening to this festive tune all throughout the season.

INTPs are dream-filled philosophers, their minds constantly brimming with creative thoughts and ideas. And since this type is usually able to make their inventive dreams into a reality, don't be surprised if we really do have a white Christmas this year.

ENTJ: We Wish You A Merry Christmas

If there's one personality type who you can be sure will lead a powerful rendition of We Wish You A Merry Christmas, it's an ENTJ. As determined, natural-born leaders, this fast-paced, upbeat holiday anthem couldn't be more fitting for an ENTJ.

Plus, they're probably the only personality type to never get tired of hearing the lyric "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" over and over and over.

ENTP: Funky, Funky Christmas — New Kids On The Block

ENTPs are mischievous, playful types who march to the beat of their own drum, so you'll definitely never find one listening to a typical holiday song. No, an ENTP prefers a more nontraditional kind of music that appeals to their independent personalities.

As an ENTP, you probably even find most of the usual Christmas songs to be boring which is why this song is absolutely perfect for you and you won't be able to stop playing it all season long. One lyric in the song itself even says it's boring, so this one's pretty much an ideal match for you.

INFJ: Joy To The World — Pentatonix

There's no personality type that loves the holiday season quite like an INFJ. For an INFJ, this time of year is truly the time of giving. It comes as no surprise that Joy To The World is the type's go-to holiday song.

True to an INFJ's personality, they always do their best to bring joy to the world around them and this passion for humanity and the Earth becomes even more apparent during the holidays.

INFP: Holly Jolly Christmas — Burl Ives

This type makes up the bright-eyed idealists of the personality world. They strive to see the beauty, virtue, and good in everything and for them, the holiday season is bustling with all these things.

Holly Jolly Christmas was practically made for them. Lyrics such as, "It's the best time of the year" and "have a cup of cheer" are sure to kick any INFP's holiday sensors into high gear. In fact, an INFP basically uses this merry tune as a motivational anthem every day throughout the season.

ENFJ: Winter Wonderland — Selena Gomez

An ENFJ is defined by their altruistic and optimistic nature. They take genuine interests in others and seek to find a brighter future for all. To an ENFJ, the holiday season really is a winter wonderland full of magic and joy.

The holidays just aren't even complete for an ENFJ if they aren't listening to this jolly melody. And you can bet that they'll be reaching for this song nonstop during this time of the year.

ENFP: Let It Snow — Jessica Simpson

Like the true free spirit you are, you're probably super giddy when you see the very first snowflakes fall in the winter. Let It Snow is most definitely your wintertime anthem.

Since the song is so popular, there's plenty of different versions of it and you probably like them all. However, the pop version is the most fun to dance to, so it's an ENFP's absolute favorite form of the admired holiday tune.

ISTJ: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas — Sam Smith

ISTJs are always working. They have an unrelenting dedication to their goals that can sometimes get in the way of their self-care.

This is why this soothing and calm, but still festive enough for the season song is your ideal go-to one for the holidays.

ESTJ: Twelve Days Of Christmas — Straight No Chaser

This is probably the only holiday song that really fits an ESTJ's unique personality. The organized, get-things-done vibe of the song works with this type's straightforward, no-nonsense attitude.

While most of us will probably have our fill of this song by listening to it twice during the holidays, Twelve Days Of Christmas is one track an ESTJ won't mind playing over and over again.

ESFJ: Jingle Bell RockMean Girls Version

There's no denying that this has been the official holiday song for ESFJs everywhere ever since that iconic Mean Girls scene. As the most popular type in the personality world, it's not surprising that Jingle Bell Rock is your seasonal jam. It won't be hard to find an ESFJ dancing every time this song comes on.

Although, if you're an ESFJ, you most likely already know how to do the entire Jingle Bell Rock dance routine from the movie by heart.

ISTP: The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late) — Alvin And The Chipmunks

No holiday decorating job is too big to tackle for this type. An ISTP will actually welcome any decorating challenges since they don't mind getting their hands dirty.

In fact, they love jobs that allow them to lend a helping hand and get right into it so if you need some assistance getting the harder decorations up, an ISTP will be there for you. And you'll most definitely find them whistling along to this catchy, quintessential ditty while they're doing the job.

ISFP: Winter Things — Ariana Grande

Are you ready to do all the winter things? Then you're probably an ISFP. Being the most adventurous personality type, there's no doubt that you want to pretend that you're at the North Pole and go ice skating during the holidays, just as this song suggests.

This song really gets an ISFP in the spirit, even if your winter plans don't include going somewhere cold this year.

ESTP: 4 Carats — Kelly Clarkson

You love to be in the spotlight, but you're also a super hard worker who's always trying to expand your career with creative, passionate ideas. You're not really the type to be found listening to a mushy holiday love song, but a song that appreciates all you do is a totally different story.

Your own name tends to show up on your holiday list and there's definitely nothing wrong with that. You believe in something many of us can sometimes forget during this time of year: how important it is to treat yourself!
