The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test measures
personality according to eight traits, in twos. The first set of traits tested is introversion
and extroversion. When taking this test, I scored twenty-two introversion points and only
six extroversion points. According to the test, I am an introvert. This means that I better
relate to the world of ideas rather than the world of people or things. Introverts are energy
conservers. They hold in stress, feelings, and ideas and they build up as long as possible.
This type of person would push to the limit all day and hold as much in as possible.
When they sit down at the end of the day, they are exhausted. This is what I do. Introverts
are quiet but friendly and generally reserved with incredible drives for their own ideas. I
feel that I am an introvert because I relate more to ideas and feelings than people. I am
very shy and reserved but friendly. I have trouble remembering names and faces but I am
interested in what people do and say. I am very detailed and somewhat of a perfectionists,
carefully thinking about things before I act. The second set of traits are the sensate and
intuitive. The sensate involves a preference to work with known facts while the intuitive
is a preference to look for possibilities and relationships. Sensate personalities are
characterized by those who do research and observation. This type of person wants to
know the facts and can see what is on the outside. They tend to take things at face value.
Sensate personalities prefer routines and standard ways of doing things. They tend to be
precise and attack things step by step, usually planning ahead. Intuitive types are the
opposite. They have no planned schedule, dislike routine, and enjoy new problems. They
follow their inspiration and are quick to jump into things without facts. They tend to see
deeper into people and things beyond face value. I scored higher in sensate personality,
which was not a surprise for me. I consider myself to be rather predictable. My daily
routine is monotonous- just the way I like it. I do what I know and seldom try new things.
I will not jump into anything without knowing the facts. I am constantly searching for the
right answer and will not trust my instincts without researching. The test accurately
described my personality again. Thinking and feeling are the third traits tested. This
section of the test refers to judgements and decision making. Thinking types are more
objective and have impersonal analysis, showing little emotion in their decisions or
opinions. They are more forward in telling the truth and saying it like it is. They may be
blunt and unknowingly hurt others. Thinking types are more analytical and serious.
Feeling types, however, use personal preferences and values when making decisions.
They are more sympathetic and can respond to others more easily. They like harmony
and try to please everyone. I scored thirteen points in feeling and eight in thinking. Once
again, I felt the test accurately described my personality. I am always trying to please
others and often do out of my way to do so. I am not happy unless everyone else is
happy. I will lie to someone’s face in order to make him or her feel better about him or
her or be happy. I cannot say anything that I think will hurt someone else’s feelings. This
is not always a good trait because I cannot be truthful. I always use my personal values to
help in my decision making. The last set of traits tested involve the preference for ways
of life- judging and perceptive. Judging types have planned and orderly ways of life.
They plan their work and follow that schedule. They like to have things settled and
finished and do not like to stop in the middle to begin a new project. They focus on one
aspect and are not satisfied until completed. Perceptive types adapt well to new situations
and are very flexible. They allow time for alternations and may have difficulty making
decisions. They tend to procrastinate and welcome new jobs, opportunities, or people.
Although I would like to consider myself as flexible, I believe I am the judging type, as
the test indicated. I scored higher in judging than in perceptive. I plan and schedule each
activity and assignment and stick to the schedule. I can only do one thing at a time and
easily stress out when I must stop one thing to do another. I hate to have more than one
project unfinished. I will work and not be satisfied until I have successfully completed
each thing on my agenda. I feel the test very accurately described my personality:
Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging.
