4 Main Myers-Briggs Personality Types

The first thing you need to know is that there are 4 main types of The Myers Briggs Personality, Extroversion and Introversion (E/I), Sensibility and Intuition (S/N), Logic and Emotion (T/F), and Judgement and Perception (J/P).


Extroversion and Introversion (E/I)

Every personality type starts with either “E” or “I”. If you identify yourself as an extrovert then you’ll be an “E” and if you’re an introvert you’ll be an “I”. If you don’t know then your answers will be the base of the results of whether E or I.


Sensibility and Intuition (S/N)

The second letter is either “S” or “N.’ People who get “S” use direct evidence and data to process information while “N” people tend to learn through their instincts.


Thinking and Feeling (T/F)

Your third letter will be either “T” or “F”. People who get a “T” in their results tend to depend on and trust logic when it comes to making decisions. As for F people, they let their emotions interfere in their decision-making process and they are guided by their feelings.


Judgment and Perception (J/P)

The fourth letter is either “J” or “P”. If you got J, it means you’re a judging person and put priority on your plans. If you got a “P”, then you tend to be adaptable.
