Understanding the Basics of this test

Myers - Briggs Test Indicator

Personality typing is a system of categorizing people according to their tendencies to think and act in particular ways, sorting people into meaningful groups.

The personality types described here were created by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Briggs, in the 1960s.

Their theories were based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung.


Myers and Briggs proposed that there were four key dimensions described as a dichotomy, or an either/or choice between two styles of being that could be used to categorize people.

The sum of a person's four preferred styles becomes their personality type.

Myers and Briggs theorized these dimensions would combine to create predictable patterns in thought and behavior so that people with the same four preferences would share many commonalities.
