Personality Assesment and Report
Learn your preferences and personality type in your personality report. Includes career matches and charts.
Personality preferences are a way of classifying a person's natural tendencies. There are four pairs of opposing preferences (for example, Extraversion vs. Introversion) for a total of eight. While all eight are used by every person to different degrees, a person will lean more toward one than the other. Each preference is noted by a single letter (such as E for Extraversion). Different combinations of these preference letters make up a person's temperament and personality type.

Preference Pairs

A summary of each of the eight preferences is provided below.

Extraversion vs. Introversion

Extraversion (E) and Introversion (I) describe how a person directs their energy either outwardly toward people and activities or inwardly toward thoughts and ideas.

Extraversion (E)

Extraversion is characterized by a preference to focus on the world outside the self. Extraverts are energized by social gatherings, parties and group activities. Extraverts are usually enthusiastic, gregarious and animated. Their communication style is verbal and assertive. Extraverts often need to talk in order to think. They enjoy the limelight.

Introversion (I)

Introversion is characterized by a preference to focus on the inside world. Introverts are energized by spending time alone or with a small group. They find large group gatherings draining because they seek depth instead of breadth of relationships. Introverts process information internally. They are great listeners and think before talking.

Sensing vs. Intuition

You use Sensing (S) and Intuition (N) to receive and process new information either by using your five senses or in more abstract ways.

Sensing (S)

Sensors focus on the present. They are "here and now" people. They are factual and process information through the five senses. They see things as they are because they are concrete and literal thinkers. They trust what is certain. Sensors value realism and common sense. They like ideas with practical applications.

Intuition (N)

Intuitive people live in the future. They are immersed in the world of possibilities. They process information through patterns and impressions. Intuitive people value inspiration and imagination. They gather knowledge by reading between the lines. Their abstract nature attracts them toward deep ideas, concepts and metaphors. They can see the "big picture" and are analytical.

Thinking vs. Feeling

The Thinking (T) and Feeling (F) preference pair refers to how you make decisions, either by objective logic or subjective feeling.

Thinking (T)

Thinking people are objective. They make decisions based on facts. They are ruled by their head instead of their heart. Thinking people judge situations and others based on logic. They value truth over tact and can easily identify flaws. They are critical thinkers and oriented toward problem solving. Thinking does not mean a person is without emotion.

Feeling (F)

Feeling people are subjective. They make decisions based on principles and values. They are ruled by their heart instead of their head. Feeling people judge situations and others based on feelings and extenuating circumstances. They seek to please others and want to be appreciated. They value harmony and empathy.

Judging vs. Perceiving

Judging (J) and Perceiving (P) are how you interact with the world outside yourself, either in a structured or flexible manner.

Judging (J)

Judging people think sequentially. They value order and organization. Their lives are scheduled and structured. Judging people seek closure and enjoy completing tasks. They take deadlines seriously. They work then they play. The Judging preference does not mean judgmental. Judging refers to how a person deals with day-to-day activities.

Perceiving (P)

Perceivers are adaptable and flexible. They are random thinkers who prefer to keep their options open. Perceivers thrive with the unexpected and are open to change. They are spontaneous and often juggle several projects at once. They enjoy starting a task better than finishing it. Deadlines are often merely suggestions. Perceivers play as they work.
