The Myers-Briggs is one of the most popular personality assessments, used by hiring managers at many companies, some government agencies, and even some other online dating sites.
These tests will categorize you into a certain “type” of personality, either giving you 1 of 16 types, labeling you as a “caregiver”, “idealist”, “scientist”, or a number of others.
In 1962, their test eventually evolved into the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator that we know today.
Even Jung knew that these types shouldn’t be used as classifications, but rather as guidelines.
This would show that there are two majorities of people, introverts or extroverts, with little to no people falling in between.
When some people hear about my personality work, most people think of the Myers-Briggs Test, and tell me they are an ‘INFP’ or an ‘ENFJ’, and ask what I am and how it’s used at e Harmony.
The next part always shocks them: we don’t use the Myers-Briggs. When I tell them that the personality type they just told me isn’t used and doesn’t have much meaning to me, they can’t believe it.
If you think you answered incorrectly, you can always go back to any question and change your answer.
At the end of the quiz we will give you the result.
However, looking at extraversion levels in 2,000 of our e Harmony users, the data shows what is similar to a normal distribution, in which a majority of people fall somewhere in the middle, indicating somewhat outgoing and somewhat shy, with only a few people being extremely introverted or extroverted.
