Do you feel more energized when you are with other people or alone?

Do you tend to notice the details or the big picture?

Do you make decisions more with your head or your heart?

Do you like to plan in advance or go with the flow?

Your answers to these questions represent your innate personality, which influences many aspects of your behavior and thought!  Your personality affects how you prefer to communicate, learn, process information, accomplish projects, work with others, make decisions, and use social media!  For high school and college students, knowing your personality type can help you understand your strengths and challenges, as well as your preferred styles of learning, conflict management, leadership, teamwork, and personal relationships.  Personality type even helps explain why you “click” with certain people, and have difficulty communicating with others! Verifying and interpreting your MBTI personality type requires a consultation with a Certified Practitioner

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the leading personality assessment tool in the world. The MBTI is based on the research of psychoanalyst Carl Jung, who first theorized that individuals are born with a personality type that is independent of culture, circumstance or family influence.

Your unique MBTI type represents your preferences on four personality scales:

Preference Scale Measures:
Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I) Source of Energy and Stimulation
Sensing (S) or Intuition (N) Ways of Perceiving and Taking in Information
Thinking (T) or Feeling (F) Ways of Deciding and Evaluating Information
Judgment (J) or Perception (P) Lifestyle Preferences

There are 16 distinct personality types that result from the interaction of these four dimensions.  Each type has a unique way of seeing the world and interacting with the world, with correspondingly different interests, reactions, values, motivations and skills. You might be surprised at how much you have in common with other people who have the same personality type as you!  Find out why an ENFJ and an ISTP look at the world in totally different ways!

Recent research indicates that personality type affects an individual’s attitude towards social media:


Personality type also affects use of Facebook!  Three-quarters of ESFTP and ENFJ have a Facebook account, compared with only half of ISTJs!
