Myer’s Brigg’s: What Can It Tell You?

The Myer’s Briggs Personality Type Indicator determines which of 16 possible personalities you are a part of. What does it matter? Maybe it doesn’t, but I think it’s interesting that I’ve taken the test at several different times in my life and always had the same result.

It gives you a better insight into why you are the way you are: everyone has a personality type and this is yours. There’s no pressure to get theΒ right one. All 16 types are equal. You’ll realize that some of the things you beat yourself up about are beyond your control. Instead of fighting against your personality traits you can acknowledge that they are there and learn to live with them.

I’ve linked the formal Myers Briggs site above, but another site that’s a bit more fun is 16 Personalities. The results were the same and there were more pages to navigate and explore more about your type. I don’t know if I would put much weight into the added information in these extra pages, but it is still cool to read.

Once you’ve taken the test, why not share it and see what your friends and family got? It’s kinda fun! What are you? If you’re curious, I’m an INFP. πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve always wondered about these tests. Several people I know are teachers, and then have talked about them in the past – about how much the test result is down to interpretation, and how it can be shaped to fit, much as a cold-reading fortune teller might. It *is* interesting though – to learn how answers to questions might indicate something about you.

    1. You bring up a good point, I agree that the results leave a lot of room for interpretation. I generally think of it a as a fun thing, but it is used in professional situations as well and I could see how that can get complicated. Thanks for reading πŸ™‚
