The Myer’s Briggs Personality Type Indicator determines which of 16 possible personalities you are a part of. What does it matter? Maybe it doesn’t, but I think it’s interesting that I’ve taken the test at several different times in my life and always had the same result.
It gives you a better insight into why you are the way you are: everyone has a personality type and this is yours. There’s no pressure to get the right one. All 16 types are equal. You’ll realize that some of the things you beat yourself up about are beyond your control. Instead of fighting against your personality traits you can acknowledge that they are there and learn to live with them.
I’ve linked the formal Myers Briggs site above, but another site that’s a bit more fun is 16 Personalities. The results were the same and there were more pages to navigate and explore more about your type. I don’t know if I would put much weight into the added information in these extra pages, but it is still cool to read.
Once you’ve taken the test, why not share it and see what your friends and family got? It’s kinda fun! What are you? If you’re curious, I’m an INFP. 🙂
