Myers-Briggs

Updated 04/09/2017
 
 
  In 1921, Carl Jung published his 
  Psychological Types from which he
  categorized people into primary types
  of psychological functions.

  In the 
1940s Katharine Cook Briggs and
  her 
daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers, built
  upon the research developed by Jung
  and developed their own theory of
  psychological types showcasing 16
  personalities.  This became known as
  The Myers-Briggs Personality Types

   The results of tests found on the listed websites should be
   deemed 
as a generalization and not a definitive assessment
   per the Myers-Briggs test.

   Companies will sometimes put their employees through a full version of this test to
   
assess how people can better work with each other through their testing results. It is
   i
mportant to understand that YOU MAY DISAGREE WITH TEST RESULTS.  Only you can
   decide which personality type fits you best, and there are circumstances that
   explain why you may decide to choose a different type than your MBTI results. There
   
are some steps that can help you find your best-fit type.

   A portion of this test is available at
 free personality test.  The test takes about 10
   minutes to answer 72 questions using a sliding marker to indicate 1 of 11 settings
   the middle (or position 6) is midway between Disagree and Agree.  YOU ARE NOT
   ASKED FOR ANY PERSONAL OR IDENTIFYING INFORMATION.  Questions are very basic.

   The test will provide you with a four letter code representing your Type Preferences.
   The first will either be an 
E or I, the second S or N, the third T or F, last is J or P.

   The available free version should not be considered a professional assessment but
   more along an initial projection that may offer you some value if you choose to use it.


   In a full test, you see the weighted value for each letter and it is possible that you may
   actually have two letters for one characteristic if the weighted values are close or the
   same.  You can find more information about this test through a Google search.

       the appropriate personality types then selecting from the 9 options above.

       Please note many if not most on-line assessment tests are brief and limited
       thus should not be considered a definitive assessment for you.  They can
       offer some insight into which of the 16 Personality Types you may be but
       they cannot provide insight for individuals who may share Personality Types
       (have strong traits of two Personality Types).  This assessment requires a
       more detailed assessment which is billable and requires more of your time.
