One way to find out more about yourself is through personality testing. I’d like to introduce you to an interesting personality test, treated sceptically in academic research because not scientifically valid and not as complex as some other personality tests, but extremely widely used in personality testing and business management all over the world because of its often intriguing results.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is based on the 4 dichotomies as developed by Jung: Extraversion – Introversion, Sensing – Intuition, Thinking – Feeling, and Judging – Perceiving. Have a look at the questions below and each time, pick the answer that suits you best. Then grab your 4-letter code based on these preferences and click on your personality type below to find out what it means for you in life and work.
The most fun and interesting thing about this personality indicator is that you don’t have to fill in an online tes. You can just think for yourself or discuss with a friend or family member and explore together what’s meaningful to you. If you’re having a hard time choosing between two poles, try to choose the most common one. There’s always one pole a little more dominant than the other.
My personality type is INFP. What's yours?
On www.truity.com you can find more information about your personality type and career possibilities. Also take some time to explore how you’re similar or different from others in the relationships section. The more different you are from someone else, the more potential for conflict and the more opportunity for growth. Or as Jung used to say: “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
