    Myers-Briggs Purpose
   Tells you which aspects of your
    personality are the most developed and
    refined and which aspects are your most
    natural tendencies
   Suggested careers are based on these

        Myers-Briggs Background
   The Personality Type Test is based on the work of C. G.
    Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist
   In essence, Jung stated that every personality must have
    three things
       A way of perceiving the world (either through sensation or
       A way of making decisions (judgments) based on those
        perceptions (either through thinking or feeling)
       An attitude with which to approach the world (either introverted or
   All of the classical 16 types are based on those three
    things and which aspects are predominant in any
        Myers-Briggs Four Scales
        and Sixteen Types
   Four Scales:                                     Sixteen Types:
       extraversion vs. introversion (E or I),          ENTJ, ENTP
       intuition vs. sensation (N or S),                ENFJ, ENFP
       thinking vs. feeling (T or F),                   ESTJ, ESTP
       perception vs. judgment (P or J)                 ESFJ, ESFP
                                                         INTJ, INTP
                                                         INFJ, INFP
                                                         ISTJ, ISTP
                                                         ISFJ, ISFP

   Extraversion:                              Introversion:
       Extraversion is an attitude (a             Introversion is an attitude (a
        habitual and typical orientation)           habitual and typical
        in which interest, value and                orientation) in which
        meaning are attached primarily              interest, value and meaning
        to external objects                         are attached primarily to
       Inner matters are habitually                internal objects
        not valued or difficult for the            External matters are
        extravert                                   habitually not valued or
                                                    difficult for the introvert

   Intuition:                            Sensation:
       In this system, "Intuition"           In this system, "Sensation"
        means strictly that the                means strictly that the internal
        internal and external world            and external world are
        are perceived through the              perceived through the five
        unconscious                            senses
       Intuitive types focus on the          Sensory types focus on the
        future, with a view toward             present and on concrete
        patterns & possibilities               information gained from senses
                                              The Sensory function perceives
                                               and adapts to external reality
                                               via the physical senses

   Thinking:                                Feeling:
        In this system, "Thinking"               In this system, Feeling means strictly the
         means strictly the logical and            discrimination between values, internal and
         rational thought-processes
                                                  It is the ability to make evaluations and
        It is the ability to make                 judgments based on values
         evaluations and judgments
                                                  Jung said the Feeling function is essential for
         based on logical categories               determining whether something is agreeable
         and ideas                                 or not agreeable, likeable or not likeable,
        The Thinking function is the              important or not important
         opposite of the Feeling                  In this case Feeling is not to be confused
         function, which is the ability            with emotions or affects, which cut across all
         to make evaluations and                   the four functions
         judgments based on values                The Feeling function is the opposite of the
                                                   Thinking function, which is the ability to
                                                   make evaluations and judgments based on
                                                   logical categories and ideas

   Perception:                                              Judgment:
        The way in which raw data or information                Technically, Judging is an attitude
         about the outer or inner world is made                   in the personality, a way of
         known through consciousness                              making decisions based on
        Jung called it an "irrational" function in the           various facts
         sense that perception is unfiltered                     Jung called it a "rational" function
        People who have stronger Perception than                 in the sense that it compares and
         Judgment are people for whom "the                        contrasts various options
         journey is more important than the                      In the case of a Thinking-based
         destination”                                             Judgment, decisions are based
        Perception is open-ended, a never-ending                 upon the logic of a situation
         stream of insights, experiences, and                    In the case of a Feeling-based
         possibilities                                            Judgment, decisions are based on
        Perceptions come through the five senses                 the relative values in a situation
         (Sensation), and yet also through the                   People with strong Judging
         unconscious itself (Intuition)                           tendencies tend to like for things
        Both are ways of taking in experiences                   to be planned and organized
         about the outer and inner world

        Myers-Briggs Percentages
   In terms of percentages of the American population it
    is generally thought that
       Extraverts outnumber Introverts 75% to 25%.
       Sensation Types (75%) are thought to be more common than
        Intuitive Types (25%).
       Thinking Types and Feeling Types are thought to be evenly
        distributed (50-50)
       People favoring Perception or Judgment are about even (50-
   Evenly distributed, each of the 16 types would be a
    little better than 6% of the population

   Is it accurate?
   Is there any benefit to this test?
   Are there any pitfalls to this test?
   How can you make use of it?

   Use this to understand that:
       People pick up on different things in given situations (thinking vs.
       People process information in different ways (sensation vs.
       People have different purposes for information (perception vs.
   Use the knowledge to:
       Facilitate communications and understanding
       Become aware of information/perspectives you would miss
       Reduce tension
   Do not use this to pigeon-hole people
