About

The Myers-Briggs (MBTI) system classifies personalities based on a combination of four factors: 

1. How you relate to the world
2. How you process knowledge
3. How you make decisions
4. How you perceive choices / lifestyle

Each factor is represented as a sequence of 4 letters, and all the combinations result in a total of 16 personalities.

More information on the MBTI system: Wikipedia

Find Your Personality

There are several long tests that you can pay for to help you figure out your Myers-Briggs type, but why not just boil it down to four questions?

Write down one letter for each question (or two if you’re not sure). When you’ve narrowed it down to 2 or 3 that you think might be you, go to the links for individual personalities above and read some more details to find the right one.

Question 1: I vs E

How do you relate to the world around you?

If you tend to gain energy from being around other people, and/or you tend to be focused on what’s going on around you, answer E. (Extraverted) ← and yes, it’s spelled like that in Myers-Briggs

If you tend to recharge from spending time alone, and/or you tend to be focused on your inner world (thoughts and feelings), answer I. (Introverted)

Question 2: S vs N

How do you process knowledge?

If you tend to gain knowledge from your senses (sight, touch, etc.), and/or you tend to better understand things that are concrete, tangible, and factual, answer S. (Sensing).

If you tend to gain knowledge from your intuition, and/or you tend to better understand things that are conceptual, abstract, or involve context and patterns, answer N. (Intuitive).

Question 3: T vs. F

How do you make decisions?

If you tend to break down problems logically and try to think through them, and/or you tend to make decisions based on what you know to be reasonable, right, or logically consistent, answer T. (Thinking).

If you tend to approach problems by evaluating the context of the situation, and/or you tend to make decisions based on how you feel, or what will acheive harmony and consensus with other people, answer F. (Feeling).

Question 4: J vs. P

How do you perceive choices and lifestyle?

If you tend to perceive choices as right or wrong with little room for gray area, you focus on seeking out the one right or best way to do things, and/or you prefer an organized, structured lifestyle, answer J. (Judging).

If you tend to perceive choices as having multiple possibilities, some more right or wrong relative to others, you focus on what is good enough or appropriate for the current situation, and/or you prefer an open-ended, flexible lifestyle, answer P. (Perceiving).

That’s it! You’re done!
