The Complete Guide to the 16 Personality Types Test

When someone said they were an INFJ, they discussed the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Even though mainstream science isn't sure how accurate the MBTI test is, many people think it's a good way to learn about yourself and grow.

What is Myers-Briggs Type Indicator?

Catherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, mother, and daughter, made the MBTI. It was made in 1943. The test is based on Carl Jung's ideas about personality types so that more people can understand them. World War II deeply affected Briggs's desire to make the personality test.

She wanted to improve the world after the war and thought that could happen if people could understand each other better. At first, Myers and Briggs used their test on their friends and family. Over the next 20 years, the two women worked on and improved the MBTI. In 1962, they published the first assessment.

What is the function of the MBTI test?

You could know how the MBTI works if you've ever taken a personality test. First, you'll take a test and answer questions about what you like, what you don't like, and what you prefer.

Extrovert (E) – Introvert (I)

The MBTI measures introversion and extraversion in a way that might differ from what you're used to hearing. According to the test, extroverts are people-oriented, enjoy being around others, and are wired to act. Introverts, on the other hand, tend to turn inward and prefer to be alone. They think about things more and have deeper relationships with fewer people.

Sensing (S) – Intuition (N)

This category looks at how people learn about things and decide what they think about them. People who prefer sensing tend to pay attention to things they can touch. They like to do things for themselves and pay more attention to the facts. People who lead with intuition, on the other hand, like to look at the big picture. They look for patterns in the facts and like to think about what else might be possible.

Thinking (T) – Feeling (F)

Most of the time, thinkers make decisions based on facts and logic. They usually make decisions based on what makes the most sense, not how they feel. Conversely, feelers think about what's essential to them and how a choice might affect the people around them.

Judging (J) – Perceiving (P)

This last category looks at how someone lives and works with other people. If you judge first, you tend to like structure and rules. People who lean towards perceiving are much more flexible and like to do things on the spur of the moment.

How to take the test:

After taking the test, you'll get a personalized report with your score. You will also get an action guide to help you determine how to use your MBTI personality type. There are 16 possible personality types, each shown by a four-letter code.
