Knowledge and understanding of the personality type as assessed by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument can be a tool for personal growth, achieving balance, understanding self, and creating possibilities. (CPP, Inc.)
What is Personality Type?
Our personality can be defined by four dichotomies that encompass opposite ways of:
(1) Using energy.
(2) Gathering information.
(3) Coming to conclusions.
(4) Relating to the outside world.
4 DICHOTOMIES OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TYPE:
(1) EXTRAVERSION – INTRAVERSION
(2) SENSING – INTUITION
(3) THINKING – FEELING
(4) JUDGING – PERCEIVING
16 Personality Types
The interaction of four mental functions and four mental attitudes leads to the definition of 16 personality types that can be identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Personality Indicator instrument.
THE FOUR MENTAL FUNCTIONS
Four mental functions define the way that we understand ourselves and each other in both the internal and external world. The functions describe opposite ways of gathering information (perceiving) and opposite ways of coming to conclusions (judging). Our preference for perceiving and judging defines two aspects personality type.
S – SENSING: We gather information through the five senses in both the internal and external world. Our focus is on concrete facts, details, and experiences that occur in the present.
N – INTUITION: We gather information as patterns in both the internal and external world. Our focus is on interrelationships, meanings, and possibilities into the future.
T – THINKING: We draw conclusions based on logical analysis of Sensing or Intuitive information in both the internal and external world. Focus is on impartiality and objectivity.
F – FEELING: We draw conclusions based on personal values about Sensing or Intuitive information in both the internal and external world. Focus is on empathy and harmony.
THE FOUR ATTITUDES OR ORIENTATIONS
Four attitudes or orientations describe opposite ways of using energy and opposite ways of relating to the outside world.
E – EXTRAVERSION: We gain life energy by interacting with the outer world of people and objects. Our focus on experiencing the world of people and things around us.
I – INTRAVERSION: We gain life energy through the interaction with ideas and inner experience. Our focus is on private reflection.
ATTITUDE ABOUT RELATING TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD
J – JUDGING: We focus on coming to conclusions and making judgements. Predictability, control, being planful, and bring things to a close describe our attitude,
P – PERCEIVING: Our approach to the outer world is to gather information and to perceive future possibility. Being adaptable, flexible, spontaneous, and open describes our attitude.
