This test will assess your thought patterns and natural behavioral tendencies. It wll take your approximately 10 minutes to complete all questions. Our personology system is based upon behavioral principles originated by David Keirsey and Myer-Briggs. After completing the questionnaire, you will find out your personality type along with the strengths of the preferences.
Take your time
Don't rush through the questions. Choose a time and place where you won't be disturbed or interrupted.
There are no right or wrong answers
The best answer to choose is the one that you most identify with.
You will have only two answers to each question. If you feel that both are true, choose the one that fits your natural tendency (not the way others expect you to behave). For example, Lisa tends to keep her desk organized, but it isn't her natural tendency, rather the childhood training. For a question: "Is it natural for you to keep your desk organized?", her answer will be "No".
As much as possible, avoid the temptation to choose answers simply because they sound appropriate or desirable. This may diminish the accuracy of your feedback.
The society expect men to act a certain way. The standard is "to be tough and outgoing", while in reality there are many successful men, who don't fit a "perfect" description.
When asked a "people question" think about colleagues and friends (not about your children and those you deeply love). For example, while Lisa is soft and caring with her son, she is tough-minded and directive at work and with friends.
The 16 Combinations
There are 16 personality types identified by combinations of letters, chosen from four pairs or alternatives, E or I, S or N, T or F, J or P. After you answer questions, your will be given an exact combination of personal characteristics:
E = Extraverted or I = Introverted
S = Sensory or N = Intuitive
T = Thinking or F = Feeling
J = Judging or P = Perceiving
Many people have taken MBTI test (Myer-Briggs system) and know how complicated it gets to remember those letters. I found David Keirsey's perspective on temperaments more intriguing, because he is very good in describing the motivation behind four groupings of the sixteen personality types.
While Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, was a fully involved and practicing clinician, much of his life's work was spent exploring tangential areas, including Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, and sociology, as well as literature and the arts. Carl Jung's interest in philosophy and the occult led many to view him as a mystic although Jung's ambition was to be seen as a man of science.
Many psychological concepts were first proposed by Jung, including the archetype, the collective unconscious, the complex, and synchronicity. Popular psychometric instruments like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), have been principally developed from Jung's theories.
