Super-quick Myers-Briggs Personality Test

The Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is a self-report inventory designed to identify a person’s personality type, strengths, and preferences. The questionnaire was developed by Isabel Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs based on their work with Carl Jung’s theory of personality types. Today, the MBTI inventory is one of the world’s most widely used psychological instruments, especially in business, but it is also used in psychological research and by clinicians and therapists.

The standard test has hundreds of questions, but in fact, it’s quite easy to get your Four MBTI letters, and also learn about what each personality function is focusing on, by simply thinking about the four questions below. If you believe yourself to be both sides of the dichotomy, try to choose the one which has the upper-hand, or is more likely to be your “default” way of doing/thinking/being in your day-to-day life, even if just by a whisker.
