Just like your offline social life, social media can help your education or torpedo it. Personality type, which offers cues into how we think, act and communicate, also correlates with aspects of social media use.

In its Myers-BriggsĀ® Type and Social Media Report, CPP found that, for example, Extraverts were more likely to use social media in general for both personal and professional purposes. Feeling types were more likely to browse, interact and share personal info on Facebook.

By understanding our personality type, we can avoid certain social media pitfalls and make our favorite social apps a productive part of our college experience.
