Myers Briggs Type Indicator®

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® personality profile is to make the theory of psychological types, described by C. G. Jung, understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much, seemingly random, variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent. This is being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.


MBTI looks at personality type based on four fundamental dimensions of individual difference, to create 16 personality type profiles:

• Extraversion (E) – Introversion (I): Where you prefer

to get or focus your energy

• Sensing (S) – iNtuition (N): The kind of information

you prefer to gather and trust

• Thinking (T) – Feeling (F): The process you prefer to

use in coming to decisions

• Judging (J) – Perceiving (P): How you prefer to deal

with the world around you
