• Consider the results with objectivity and caution.


MYERS-BRIGGS Directions:

• For each of the following 20 prompts choose a. or b.

• Record your answers on the score sheet directly below question

• Even if you agree with both answers, check one you agree with more.

• Answer as you really are, not you want to be.

• Make choices for the majority of your life situations.

MYERS-BRIGGS Explanation

• The original ideas of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) were created by Carl Gustav Jung in 1921.

• The actual test was officially published in 1962. The test was created to help determine which careers would be best for women as they entered the workforce for the first time during WWII.

The test is made of four different dichotomies or personality descriptions. One can either be:
