I’m sure you know your astrological sign. But do you know your Myers-Briggs personality type? Wait, do you even know what Myers-Briggs is? If you’re into your horoscope or even determining what career path might be best based on your personality type, then it should prove pretty interesting.
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a questionnaire that helps gauge how you perceive the world around you and what goes into your decision-making process. Someone can be ISTJ, INFP, ENTJ, or one of the other 13 types. There are four different categories and each has two characteristics. There’s E or I, which stands for extrovert or introvert, respectively. S for sensors and N for intuitives. T for thinkers and F for feelers. And finally, J for judgers and P for perceivers.
So an ISTJ would be: introvert sensor thinker judger.
While the test takes about thirty minutes or so, we’re breaking down the 16 personality types. And not just the types, but what power color is associated with each one.
