Group houses are often referred to as “intentional communities” for a reason: Finding the right fit isn’t always easy. (Teddy Wolff/for Express)

Are you looking for a new roommate to add to your group house?  Before you start advertising, figure out what kind of house you have.

The silent type: Your idea of a house meeting is a group text thread. 

Party animal: Your feet stick to the kitchen floor when you walk — and you like it that way. 

Arty: You firmly believe that every wall needs a mural and every room an installation piece. 

Green: Solar panels. On. Everything. 

Bookish: Your “entertainment center” is the bookshelf. 

Generically “chill”:  You clean up after yourself and drink a socially acceptable amount of alcohol.
