Myers Briggs Type Indicator

The MBTI instrument was developed by a mother-and-daughter team, Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers.  The Indicator is based on the work of Carl G. Jung and his theory of psychological type.


The MBTI provides a useful method for understanding people by looking at eight personality preferences that all people use at different times.  These eight preferences are organized into four dichotomies, each made up of a pair of opposite preferences.  When you take the Indicator, the for preferences that you identify as most like you (one from each pair) are combined into what is called a type.  The four dichotomies describe four activities:

ENERGIZING:How a person is energized - either

Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I)

PERCEIVING: What a person pays attention to either

Sensing (S) or Intuition (N)

DECIDING: How a person decides - either

Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)

LIVING: The lifestyle a person adopts - either

Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)

Describes rather than prescribes, and therefore is used to open possibilities, not to limit options; identifies preferences, not skills, abilities, or competencies; assumes that all preferences are equally important and all can be used by each person; is well documented with thousands of scientific studies conducted during a fifty-year period; has ongoing research to support its application.

The MBTI instrument will help you understand your preferred styles:


Extraversion: preference for drawing energy from the outside world of people, activities, and things.  

Introversion: preference for drawing energy from one's inner world of ideas, emotions, and impressions.


Sensing: preference for taking in information through the five senses and noticing what is actual.

Intuition: preference for taking in information through a "sixth sense" and noticing what might be


Thinking: preference for organizing and structuring information to be decide in a logical, objective way.

Feeling: preference for organizing and structuring information to decide in a personal, values-based way.


Judging: preference for living a planned and organized life.

Perceiving: preference for living a spontaneous and flexible life.
