DISCOVER YOUR PERSONALITY TYPE
The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire with the purpose of indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions. The MBTI was constructed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. It is based on the conceptual theory proposed by Carl Jung, who had speculated that humans experience the world using four principal psychological functions – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking – and that one of these four functions is dominant for a person most of the time.
Jung's typological model regards psychological type as similar to left or right handedness: people are either born with, or develop, certain preferred ways of perceiving and deciding. The MBTI sorts some of these psychological differences into four opposite pairs, or "dichotomies", with a resulting 16 possible psychological types. None of these types is "better" or "worse".
The 16 types are typically referred to by an abbreviation of four letters—the initial letters of each of their four type preferences (except in the case of intuition, which uses the abbreviation "N" to distinguish it from introversion).
The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.
Meaning of individual letters:
- I – Introversion
- E – Extraversion
- S – Sensing
- N – iNtuition
- T – Thinking
- F – Feeling
- J – Judging
- P – Perceiving
There are no right answers to any of these questions. Answer the questions quickly, do not over-analyze them. Some seem worded poorly. Go with what feels best. Answer the questions as “the way you are”, not “the way you’d like to be seen by others”.
