Personality Type

Updated: a day ago


Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Although there are many other personality tests (such as The Big Five and HEXACO), the MBTI is by the far the most well-known and widely used. Despite its wide use, the MBTI is still only a description of my personality, not a definition of who I am. Because my personality has changed (and will continue to change) over time, the MBTI is less of a prescriptive framework and more of a descriptive framework for understanding my unique personality. Nevertheless, the MBTI is widely used to answer the following questions:

  1. How do I gain energy? (Extraversion, introversion) E/I

  2. How do I gather information? (Sensing, Intuition) S/N

  3. How do I process information? (Thinking, Feeling) T/F

  4. How do I interact with the world? (Judging, Perceiving) J/P

The chart below provides a helpful list of descriptive adjectives for each possible combination of the four personality dimensions:

In case you were wondering, I identify myself as an ISTJ (introversion, sensing, thinking, judging). "Introversion" means that I tend to recharge by myself. "Sensing" means that I like to live in the moment, but I also focus on the big picture. "Thinking" means that I tend to make decisions based on logic and pre-determined objectives. "Judging" means that I prefer a planned and organized approach to life. Of course, as I have already mentioned, there is no "Right" or "Wrong" results when it comes to the MBTI; everyone exists on a spectrum. However, the MBTI can be a very useful tool for understanding the way that I interact with others and the world around me. As I mature and grow in my emotional capacity and professional career, I am confident that the MBTI will help me identify areas for improvement in my personality.
