Jungian Personality Test Explained
This test is based on the work done by the highly esteemed and influential psychiatrist Carl Jung and the work done by the mother/daughter team of Myers and Briggs (this is NOT, however, an official Myers and Briggs test.) The Jungian idea was that people experience life through Sensation, Intuition, Feeling, and Thinking. The results of this test will tell you how you rank in each of the four categories and what that specific combination means.
As mentioned above, Carl Jung maintained that people experienced life through four main faculties:
Jung also maintained that one of these was usually dominant in a person.
In addition, inside of each of categories above, Jungian theory says that you experience life in primarily one of two ways. (Each of those ways is represented by a letter.)
- Sensation – Introversion (I) or Extraversion (E)
- Intuition – Sensing (S) or Intuition (N)
- Feeling – Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)
- Thinking – Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)
So, for example, if after taking the test, someone scores an (I) for introversion in the first category, an (S) for sensing in the second category, a (T) for thinking in the third category, and a (J) for judging in the fourth category, we would say that person is an ISTJ.
All of the possible combinations create 16 personality types.
