Category — Your Personality Type-DISCOVER IT


I am very passionate about personality types. The study of them just draws me in.
I get a thrill from learning about them, observing the multitude of personality types
around me, and using that knowledge to help people make career related decisions.

What I really like about the Myers-Briggs personality type is that it reveals a person’s
preference towards:

– how they perceive the world and
– how they make decisions

Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers soaked up the amazing
information of Carl Jung’s book Psychological Types, which declared that each person
is “wired” with different tendencies and preferences. These 2 ladies expanded his
research even further by creating the 16 personality types.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is “the best-known and most trusted personality
assessment tool available today” and “the world’s most widely used personality
assessment,” with as many as 2 million assessments administered annually says
the Consulting Psychologists Press.

Each personality type is divided into 4 letters, reflecting 4 preferences.

1. The 1st letter can be either an E: Extraversion or an I: Introversion
2. The 2nd letter can be either an S: Sensory or an N: Intuitive
3. The 3rd letter can be either an F: Feeling or a T: Thinking
4. The 4th letter can be either a P: Perceiving or a J: Judging

How do you Approach the World?
EXTROVERTS get their energy from being around people and enjoy social events.
INTROVERTS have a rich inner world, enjoy reflecting, and like smaller groups.

How do you Make Decisions?
THINKERS make decisions based on facts and use their head, not their heart.
FEELERS base decisions on unique situations and how they/ others are feeling.

How do you Process Data?
INTUITIVES focus on possibilities/abstract theories and see patterns.
SENSORS focus on the present, are factual, use their 5 senses, and notice details.

How do you approach End Results?
JUDGERS like organization/project completion. Judging does not mean “judgemental.”
PERCEIVERS like to keep their options open, are spontaneous, and dislike closure.

The following website offers a free Myers-Briggs personality questionnaire, a 4-letter
description of your type, and a list of career choices attuned to your personality.

The great thing about this website is that each question has 3 options to choose from
(tending strongly towards one preference, the opposite preference, or in between).

*Please note: The types are not meant to stereotype. They are meant to give a better
understanding of the type we most closely resound with.


I would L.O.V.E to know your personality type! Write it in the comments section please.

The following website also offers an excellent catering of information about your type.
Just click on your 4-letter type and you’ll be guided to a wealth of information ranging
from “About You” to “Famous People of Your Type” to “Career Matches” to “Your Type’s
Online Communities” and to “More of Your Type’s Information.”
