The 16th Season Premier of ABC‘s The Bachelor aired this Monday and oh how sweet it is. The 2012 Bachelor season features Californian wine-maker Ben Flajnik sifting through 25 specially selected women with the ultimate goal of course of finding true love. Fans of the franchise watched poor Ben propose to Ashley Hebert on the last season of the Bachlorette and given that he’s the new “Bachelor” I think it’s pretty obvious how that one turned out.  Ben was one of two male finalists on Ashley‘s season of the Bachlorette and had the unfortunate luck of having his proposal rejected on national television. Ben however is now in good spirits and willing to give love another chance, so let’s go right on ahead and wish young Benjamin the best of luck and take a look at his personality type.

Ben Flajnik is a young (29) and humble winemaker born and raised in Sonoma, California. Ben is part of a very close-knit family including his mother and sister but was met with tragedy four years ago when his father passed away.  Ben grew up in the wine-making business, working sales for his family’s winery, and then eventually co-founding his own organic wine company named Evolve Winery.  Ben is extremely kind-hearted, an outstanding host and a natural caregiver. Extremely personable, very talkative, highly sensitive and yet charmingly traditional Ben Flajnik is undoubtedly a Provider Guardian.  Indeed Ben is quite the ladies man, having briefly dated Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ben decided that his humble and ‘normal’ wine-maker life in Northern California was more to his taste.  Though Ben’s rejected proposal was heart-wrenching to watch, something tells me he’s gonna be ok:

Providers make loyal and loving mates, willing to stand by by their husband or wife through good times and bad, going beyond the call of duty to maintain the marriage and appearance of happiness, even when the road is rocky. They enjoy socializing and entertaining, and observe all the rituals connected with serving wholesome food and beverages. They thrive on traditional festivities, and seem able to express the right feeling for a given social occasion. They are fond-hearted, sentimental, and usually observe with flourish birthdays and anniversaries, making them joyous occasions. — Please Understand Me II, p. 112

  1. Thanks for posting this. There are SO many girls who watch this show, and with all the personalities that go through it, it’s hard to keep your head on straight about who is what personality. Personally, this saves me a whole season of guessing at Ben’s personality type! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 🙂
    p.s. Ashley was an Artisan right? My guess was an ISTP?

    1. Honestly if I had to guess I’d say Teacher Idealist. Maybe Champion. Hard to say! She’s definitely a sweety though. What makes you think Crafter Artisan? Ironically enough that would mean her and Ben would have made a great couple. Owell : (
