It’s possible many of us have heard about the Jung Typology Test. The personality test that reveals personality types such as ENTJ, INFJ, etc, etc. Somewhere along life’s path you may have been asked to take it. Well, there is a website which allows everyone to take the test for free (listed below). It can offer some insights into yourself, your spouse, really anyone.
The internet is full of personality quizzes and assessments. This test falls under the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
From wikipedia: The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.
[Carl]Jung’s theory of psychological types was not based on controlled scientific studies but, instead, on subjective clinical observation,introspection and anecdote—methods regarded as inconclusive in the modern field of scientific psychology.
Jung’s typology theories postulated a sequence of four cognitive functions (thinking, feeling, sensation, and intuition), each having one of two polar orientations (extraversion or introversion), giving a total of eight dominant functions. The MBTI is based on these eight hypothetical functions, although with some differences in expression from Jung’s model.
And for fun, some clever takes on the different personality types:
There is also an interesting Ted Talk by Susan Cain called, “The Power of Introverts”. Her findings challenge our perceptions of extroverts and introverts. It’s worth a listen, especially for some of us who score as introverts.
