Myers-Briggs Personality Type Test

Thursday, January 11, 2007

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality test designed to assist a person in identifying some significant personal preferences. Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers developed the Indicator during World War II, and its criteria follow from Carl Jung's theories in his work Psychological Types.

AFAIK, this MBTI was worth taking, because it provides you nearly accurate results ! Even big companies's HRD used it in order to test their future employee.
The Indicator is frequently used in the areas of academia, group dynamics, employee training, leadership training, marriage counseling, and personal development.

Peter Bromberg from has made some tests, according to the MBTI method.
The actual MBTI can only be administered by a licensed practitioner; however there have been a number of well-designed "clones" over the years, of which the test you can take here is one. My test has 69 questions, carefully culled from a valid question pool, that are oriented more towards our visitor audience of programmers. However, anyone can take the test and it will provide a valid type determination. It is important to answer all the questions, even if you have to think for a while, in order to get a statistically valid preference type result. It is estimated that 70 percent of the Fortune 500 companies have utilized the MBTI, so it is a test with a lot of credibility.

Below are the 16 MBTI personality archetypes :

INTJ - The Free-Thinker

INTJs are strong individualists who seek new angles or novel ways of looking at things. They enjoy coming to new understandings. They are insightful and mentally quick; however, this mental quickness may not always be outwardly apparent to others since they keep a great deal to themselves. They are very determined people who trust their vision of the possibilities, regardless of what others think. They may even be considered the most independent of all of the sixteen personality types. INTJs are at their best in quietly and firmly developing their ideas, theories, and principles.


So Take The Test and find out yourself, and share the results ;)
