A great way to get to know yourself is to take the Myers-Briggs personality test. If you haven’t taken the test to find out where you land on the scale, go do it right now! Sure, it’s a semi-long questionnaire of often repetitive questions, but in the end it reveals way more about your personality than any other online quiz you can take — no offense to you obsessive quiz takers. It’s also a great way to get to know how you respond to conflict, relationships, and work life.
The indicator, created by Katherine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers, was based on the typological theory made by psychologist Carl Jung, revealing how humans experience the world. Each type is made up of four letters, and there are two possible traits in each area:
- Extroverted (E), Introverted (I)
- Sensing (S), Intuitive (N)
- Thinking (T), Feeling (F)
- Judgement (J), Perception (P)
The scale of these letters isn’t black and white — you can often be on the edge of one or the other. But for the sake of the test, it will put you in one category. And if you’re interested to find out more, there is a ton of fascinating information on Myers-Briggs. I don’t know about you, but this is one topic I could read about all day long.
So once you know your type, it’s an awesome way to find out what you’re most interested in reading about.
