Sixteen Myers Briggs Personality Types

Any discussion of the Sixteen Myers Briggs Personality Types must begin with an understanding the Eight Myers Briggs Preferences.  The Eight Myers Briggs Preferences form the basis of understanding of your unique Myers Briggs Type.  The Myers Briggs assessment assumes that you naturally choose one of two preferences in each of four categories relating to how you see the world around you.  These four sections are called dichotomies or preferences.  Assembling these preferred preferences generates your Myers Briggs (MBTI) Type.

Measuring Type not aptitude

It is important to realize that they Myers Briggs Instrument tests for Personality Type not your ability.  Your personality Type does not indicate how effective you will be in a career, school or any other venture.  Ultimately you choose how effective you are.  One preference or personality Type is not better than another, it is just different.  For example left handed people are not more talented than right handed people.  They are just different.  The MBTI shows how individuals see the world around them.  You can choose to change the way you see the world.  However, in order to change your outlook you must first know who you are.
