by MaryAddison

This is the most comprehensive and individualized personality test I've EVER taken. I've been interested in personality styles for over 20 years and there are always areas the each of them don't seem to take into consideration. I also appreciate how when you have a result where percentages are close to 50/50 it is explained that you will likely respond different ways according to the situation or your mood. For instance I can be extremely logical in certain situations and in situations or concepts I am passionate about, I will respond emotionally. I 100% suggest you pay for the full report, it's well worth it!

Personality typing is a system of categorizing people according to their tendencies to think and act in particular ways. Personality typing attempts to find the broadest, most important ways in which people are different, and make sense of these differences by sorting people into meaningful groups.

What is personality typing?

The personality types described here were created by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Briggs, in the 1960's. Their theories were based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung, although they extended his ideas to create a more complete framework of personality typing. Myers and Briggs proposed that there were four key dimensions that could be used to categorize people:

  • Introversion vs. Extraversion
  • Sensing vs. Intuition
  • Thinking vs. Feeling
  • Judging vs. Perceiving

Each of the four dimensions was described as a dichotomy, or an either/or choice between two styles of being. Myers and Briggs described this as a "preference" and proposed that any individual should be able to identify a preferred style on each of the four dimensions. The sum of a person's four preferred styles becomes their personality type.

Myers and Briggs theorized that our preferences on each of the four dimensions would combine to create predictable patterns in thought and behavior, so that people with the same four preferences would share many commonalities in the way they approach their lives, from the hobbies they choose to the work that might suit them.

What is the meaning of the four letters in a personality type?

Each of the four letters in a personality type code stands for a preference in your style of thinking or behaving.

I/E: Introversion or Extraversion

The Introversion/Extraversion dimension describes how a person manages their energy.

Introverts are energized by spending quiet time alone or with a small group. They tend to be more reserved and thoughtful.

Extraverts are energized by spending time with people and in busy, active surroundings. They tend to be more expressive and outspoken.

S/N: Sensing or iNtuition

The Sensing/Intuition dimension describes how an individual processes information.

Sensors focus on their five senses and are interested in information they can directly see, hear, feel, and so on. They tend to be hands-on learners and are often described as "practical."

Intuitives focus on a more abstract level of thinking; they are more interested in theories, patterns, and explanations. They are often more concerned with the future than the present and are often described as "creative."

T/F: Thinking or Feeling

The Thinking/Feeling dimension describes how people make decisions.

Thinkers tend to make decisions with their heads; they are interested in finding the most logical, reasonable choice.

Feelers tend to make decisions with their hearts; they are interested in how a decision will affect people, and whether it fits in with their values.

J/P: Judging or Perceiving

The Judging/Perceiving dimension describes how people approach structure in their lives.

Judgers appreciate structure and order; they like things planned, and dislike last-minute changes.

Perceivers appreciate flexibility and spontaneity; they like to leave things open so they can change their minds.

Myers-Briggs test: the shortest test that will tell you everything about you . It is used all over the world - including in government organizations. Such a test helps to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the individual in order to build competent relationships with others and increase one's potential.

However, before taking the test, you need to know the following about it:

  1. None of the described types can suit you 100%. Because each of us has traits that take us beyond the average personality type.

  2. The Myers-Briggs test helps solve many questions, but life is such an unpredictable thing that no psychologist can predict it.

  3. Don't let testing (and any fortune-telling, horoscopes, etc. ) rule your life. This test determines the type of personality, but does not dictate how and when you should act.

  4. Every person has positive and negative character traits. Therefore, it cannot be said that some of the personality types below are good and some are bad.

Now get ready and answer honestly 🤗 For each question, you need to choose only one answer and write down the corresponding letter.

1. How do you recover when you feel that you have no more strength?

2. Which description best suits you?

  • I like to live in the moment, here and now, I have a very well developed sense of reality and I am focused on the details of what is happening — S

  • I love to dream, to come up with something new. I live for future projects — N

3. When you have to make an important decision (to choose a university or break up with a guy), what guides you?

  • I try to think with my head. In such matters, logic is important - T

  • I am learning to listen to the heart. If you know how to listen to your emotions, then you make the right decisions -

situations, in extreme conditions, my best ideas come to me -

P

Done? Now it's time to explain what these incomprehensible letters meant:

0009

👉 If after reading you have a feeling that this type of personality does not suit you at all, then remember, perhaps when answering one of the questions, you did not know what to choose? Then come back to this question - and you will get a new combination. We are sure that everything will work out this time 🙃

ISTJ - Inspector

Famous people: Queen Elizabeth, Natalie Portman

People of this type of personality love order in everything and try to delve deeply into any, even the most insignificant issues. At the same time, they do not take anything for granted - they analyze any information, collect additional information.

They are able to see things realistically, so they only start work if they are sure they can finish what they started. You can rely on such people, but they prefer short contacts for the duration of the work.

ISFJ — defender

Famous people: Beyoncé, Kate Middleton, Selena Gomez

People of this type very clearly divide others into “us” and “them”, quickly recognizing falsehood and pretense. For "their own" they are ready for a lot - and they will never ask for something in return. They can always stand up for these people, but they will not let themselves be offended either.

In general, they are good-natured "protectors" who are rarely aggressive. They analyze well, like order (but not fanatical), and draw inspiration from the people around them.

INFJ — adviser

Famous people: Nicole Kidman

Such a person is a real gauge of relationships between people. He not only perfectly feels other people's moods, but also easily determines their hidden talents, so he can become a good teacher. Seeing him as a support, others often turn to him for advice.

However, despite outward calmness and wisdom, human advisers are easily vulnerable, they can hardly endure aggression and (especially) lack of love.

INTJ - Inspirer

Famous people: Mark Zuckerberg, Michelle Obama

Inspirer people are not used to wasting time. They strive to improve everything they can, from projects to people. People of this type use atypical ideas, so most often their undertakings are crowned with success.

At the same time, they demonstrate independence in everything - thereby alienating the people around them, with whom they already have a strained relationship (due to the introversion of inspirers).

ISTP — craftsman

Famous people: Olivia Wilde, Kristen Stewart

Such people are used to learning the world through sensations. They are excellent at working with their hands thanks to a technical mindset, while clearly observing all deadlines. They are not accustomed to throwing themselves into the pool with their heads - before making a decision, they wait a long time and analyze everything. Because of this secrecy, their final actions often seem unpredictable and strange to others.

ISFP - Composer

Famous People: Avril Lavigne, Lana Del Rey, Michael Jackson

These types of people don't try to remake the world and other people - they exist perfectly with what has already been created before them. They avoid conflict situations in every possible way, they like to entertain others. They can help and enjoy if they have been useful to someone.

Living with composers is a pleasure: they respect other people's space, don't demand anything, and set you on a positive wave.

INFP — healer

Famous people: Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn

Healers are well versed in the psychology of other people, they know how to feel them. Those around them are subconsciously drawn to them, however, despite the ease of communication, all the thoughts of people of this type are directed inward - as a result of their desire for inner harmony.

Healers devote a lot of time to their outward appearance, sometimes they lose the sense of the reality of what is happening and rest for an unacceptably long time.

INTP - architect

Famous people: Meryl Streep, Bill Gates it is simply impossible to do so.

So these people are constantly busy, they don’t consider it necessary to waste time on emotions, but they really appreciate comfort and coziness (an environment where they can do what they love — analytics 😁

ESTP - fidget

Famous people: Madonna, Mila Kunis, Miley Cyrus

These people are born fighters, they can even resort to physical strength to achieve their goal. It is not surprising that they simply cannot stand submission, but good leaders come out of them thanks to the ability to draw up a clear plan of action, which they strictly follow.

ESFP — activist

Notable people: Adele, Katy Perry, Will Smith, Cameron Diaz

People of this type are good at seeing the abilities of others, but often use this information for personal purposes - in particular, in order to put pressure on weak points and be able to manage them. It is very important for them to look in the eyes of other people as outstanding personalities.

In general, they try to build harmonious relationships. They do not like long-term projects - they live here and now, so they want to get the result immediately.

ENFP Champion

Famous people: Ellen DeGeneres, Sandra Bullock

Such people can't stand routine, creative work is great for them. Due to the ability to be equally extroverted and deeply sensitive people, they can see in others what is hidden from the rest.

Sincerely enjoy life, live in harmony with everyone. Due to their curiosity, they are intellectually developed and attract other people.

ENTP Inventor

Notable people: Robert Downey Jr.

This personality type fully justifies its name - these people are inventive and resourceful. With the ability to synthesize ideas, they are not afraid of unconventional methods of work.

And as a result, they become pioneers in many spheres of life and branches of knowledge. They hate routine, they are constantly in tension - because they are in the eternal search for new solutions.

ESTJ Administrator

Notable People: Emma Watson

Don't feed these people with bread - let them establish order somewhere or impose their own judgment. However, they are not dictators - they are driven by a simple desire for orderliness.

They are not alien to fun and sense of humor - they have a great time in a noisy company. Do not forget about loved ones and know how to show love. Yet sometimes they are harsh, stubborn and quick-tempered - especially when it comes to disobeying the order they have established.

ESFJ teacher

Famous people: Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba

People of this personality type are always the soul of the company. It costs them nothing to cheer up others, they easily find a common language with anyone and know how to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others.

However, they never ask for help in their work: they are used to achieving everything on their own. The only thing they need is for those close to them to pay attention to their virtues from time to time.

ENFJ mentor

Notable people: Jennifer Lawrence, Tom Hiddleston

Very emotional, such people are accustomed to comprehending the surrounding reality at the level of empathy — which they do very well. They have active facial expressions, their manner of communication attracts listeners. They know how to anticipate events, due to which they are ready for almost any unforeseen circumstances.

They feel well the dishonesty of other people, they always fight for justice.
