What is Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type?

by Adam Ayers on October 31st, 2011

Wikipedia Defines the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator as:

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung and first published in his 1921 book Psychological Types.

My definition is a little bit simpler. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a simple tool you can use to better understand what motivates the way you and your peers think and act. It isn’t a tell-all book about you, as we are all different, but it does a pretty good job of honing in on your personality type. It can also help you understand the fundamental way in which the people around you (friends, family, co-workers) think.

Try it out for yourself! Take the test here: http://kisa.ca/personality

Your result will be a 4-letter output. Mine is ENTJ. Which means I am an Extroverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judger.

Here is a link to my personality portrait: http://www.personalitypage.com/ENTJ.html

To get your portrait simply change the 4 letters in the URL to your type.
