MBT Who?!

Another service we offer to students who are conflicted about their choice of major or career path is the Myers-Briggs Temperment Inventory (MBTI). There are 16 potential combinations of results, and they reflect your personality and how you tend to interact with others. I’m not going into each potential outcome, but I am going to give an overview of each part of the result.

The first section relates to how you draw energy. If you are an Introvert, you get energy from within, and actually, can feel that your energy is drained when you have to interact with many people. On the other hand, Extroverts get energized after feeling energized from the people around them. You love being around people and usually find it easy to strike up a conversation even with people you don’t know.

The second section is how you prefer to take in information. Sensing people prefer the cold, hard facts. They want things to be realistic, practical, and concrete. However, Intuitive types prefer to use their imagination. They interpret abstract ideas and like things to be original and conceptual.

Third, we have decision making. People who call into the Thinking category can be tough decision makers. They use logic and reasoning, and can be critical. People who fall into the Feeling category use their heart more than their head. They are accepting and open and try to accomodate everyone when making decisions.

As our last category, we have Lifestyle. People who are Judging does not mean they are judgemental of others. Judgers simply like to have a plan. They are systematic and try to start everything early. People who are Perceiving are more likely to go with the flow. They are more spontaneous and may respond more quickly if the deadline is closer.

Based on what you’ve read, what combination of the four categories do you think you are?
