Knowing your personality type opens up the opportunity to work with a trained therapist to guide you on a journey of self-discovery. Your personal growth, relationships, and career are much more likely to be successful and happy when you have a deep understanding of why you do the things you do and think the way you think. The first step in strengthening your strengths and neutralizing your weaknesses is to know your personality type.

In this series of guides we examine the 16 personality types based on the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator).

In the 1940s, two notable women, Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Myers, developed the MBTI personality test. Myers-Briggs relied heavily on Carl Jung's theories and concluded that every human being:

  • is either extroverted (E) or introverted (I)
  • They use either intuition (N) or perception (S) to experience the world around them
  • You use either feeling (F) or thinking (T) to make decisions
  • They use either Perception (P) or Assessment (J) to achieve their goals

The different combinations of these contrasts form the 16 personality types.
