What type of BTO-er are you?


Check out the other types of BTO-ers below!

The Enthusiast
BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design

Characteristics:

The most enthu one amongst all BTO-ers, and probably the first neighbour that everyone will know. Right from the day the BTO is ready for balloting, this person would already have tried gathering the future neighbours together. He might get mistaken as a sales person. But really, this person just wants to be a friendly neighbour. Pretty much like the Orientation Group Leaders in school.

Most Compatible With:

The Selfie Queen (who else would love the outings that The Enthusiast organises more than someone who can’t wait to take selfies!)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Chic home designs that exude a cheerful vibe and are great for hosting parties at home. Check out more chic designs here!

The Intel

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

Somehow this person knows everything about BTOs. From balloting results, to HDB regulations and to BTO building progress, you name it and he knows it. He’s like the wikipedia of HDB, or an intel working in HDB itself. He is constantly hunting for more info on the internet. If you’re a lost sheep, he will be your saviour, so much so that you probably won’t even need to consult HDB anymore.

Most Compatible With:

The Kiasu (Probably the biggest fan of The Intel. Any information is good for The Kiasu to stay ahead)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Contemporary designs that are trendy and stylish, just nice for someone who’s up-to-date with everything. Check out more contemporary designs here!

The Worry Wart

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

The Worry Wart worries about everything and anything. He can think of all sort of scenarios to worry about and is quite lost on his own. He’s great at assessing risk… and avoiding it. He’s also known as the scaredy cat, cos he is practically worried and scared of every bad thing that can ever happen. If you’re The Chillax, consider staying far away from The Worry Wart. Either he will drive you crazy with his constant worries or you will drive him nuts with your chillax attitude. 

Most Compatible With:

The Intel (Not because he’s kiasu, but because he can’t stop worrying unless he knows what’s going on)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Nature designs with floral displays that will help freshen up your mood and drive your worries away. Check out more nature designs here!

The Chillax

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

The most chillax one of the bunch. Doesn’t seem to worry about anything. You can say he’s optimistic, and carefree. He gives no hoots about deadlines and what ifs. If he was a student, he would have left his project untouched until the last hour before submission. You might think he is lazy, but no, he just wants to enjoy his time. So in some sense, he is also a risk taker. If you are a Nagger, he will be a test of your nagging skills, really.

Most Compatible With:

The Enthusiast (The Chillax has nothing to worry about, so what else can he do, other than to enjoy those activities planned by The Enthusiast)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Minimalist designs that require the least effort to design and maintain. Check out more minimalist designs here!

The Unlucky

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

Sadly, this person is the Bad Luck Brian of the BTO-ers. He always just seem to end up with the shorter end of the stick. If everyone have to try an average of 2 times before getting a good BTO unit, this guy probably had to try 12 times. But he has a never-say-die attitude, and that’s the only reason why he keeps coming back for another chance at BTO. HDB loves him alot, and wants to keep seeing him year on year for each BTO application.

Most Compatible With:

The Intel (When luck is really against you, you have no choice but to find out what’s the next best option. And who else know best other than The Intel)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Resort designs that will make you feel like you’re on a vacation and cheer you up in bad times. Check out more resort designs here!

The Nagger

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

This person has so many things to worry about and feels a pressing need to keep reminding people around her about things to do. But her nagging does wonders in getting things done quickly and properly. She is also the opposite of The Chillax. If there is anything needed to be done by her, she will be sure to get it done as soon as possible.

Most Compatible With:

The Kiasu (only The Kiasu needs no nagging to stay ahead of the game)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Scandinavian designs which are simple, yet neatly elegant and are easy to design and maintain, giving you less things to nag about. Check out more Scandinavian designs here!

The Kiasu

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

The Kiasu can’t stand missing out on any opportunity. Any lobang that others are enjoying, you can be sure this person wants to have a leg in it too. If anyone is looking for best deals in town, this person will be the right one to ask. At the workplace, this person will likely be the one camping nearest to the pantry for free food.

Most Compatible With:

The Intel (The Kiasu needs as much intel as possible to stay ahead.)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Luxe designs that bring out the posh and elegant feel, making you feel so atas (high class in Singlish). Check out more luxe designs here!

The Selfie Queen

BTO, HDB, Nestr, Home Design, Interior Design
Characteristics:

The Selfie Queen is a celebrity in her own standards. She is also the biggest fan and paparazzi of herself. Like a professional photographer, she knows what’s her best camera angle. You won’t be surprised to see her social media page flooded with selfies and wefies. Her camera is also always ready for photo taking.

Most Compatible With:

The Enthusiast (Only The Enthusiast can create this many selfie opportunities)

Suitable Interior Design Style:

Scandinavian designs which often focus on making the place look bright and airy. Great for selfies and Instagram-ing without filters. Check out more luxe designs here!
