Answer honestly 4 questions - and we will give the most accurate assessment of your personality! Pranks aside: a serious test!
The Myers-Briggs personality typology was created on the basis of Jung's theory in the 1940s and became widespread in the United States and Europe, writes Teen Vogue .
On the basis of this typology, a system of psychological tests was created to determine your personality - the Myers-Briggs type identifier.
This Identifier is widely used in business - for example, in many large western companies. In the US, up to 70% of high school graduates pass this test to select their future profession.
This test is designed to determine one of the 16 personality types. It includes 4 dual typological scales. The purpose of the typology and tests is to help the person in determining his personal preferences.
The essence of the test is that it determines a person’s inclination to a certain type of activity, style of actions, nature of decisions, and other features that allow him to feel comfortable and confident.
For this, 4 scales were invented, according to which the personality is investigated:
1. Extrovert - introvert (scale EI).
Introverts (I) are not necessarily closed and uncommunicative people, as the yellow editions often depict. They can be sociable and sociable, but they draw energy and work better alone with themselves. Such people prefer thought rather than word, so they always think before they say.
In contrast to the extroverts (E), in whom sociability borders on talkativeness. For them, for the happiness of being and working with other people. They solve problems not alone behind closed doors, but by discussing what makes it possible to find a compromise.
2. Sensory - intuition (SN scale).
People who belong to the S-type , assessing the situation, take into account all the details that can be understood and felt thanks to the "sensors" - sight, scent, touch. They rely on external, already known data and are consistent in their decisions, which are carefully considered and weighed. They are always accurate, for them no guessing is necessary, not confirmed by facts, and only what is happening here and now is of paramount importance.
N-type is more inclined to rely on intuition. Often these are people with a developed imagination, for whom the world is the focus of opportunity. They are careless with the facts, but they are able to see the picture globally, to predict the most varied paths of events.
3. Thinking - feeling (TF scale).
Decision making is based on the well-known dichotomy of “emotion and intellect”. T-type - these are people for whom logic is in the first place. They follow the voice of reason and make decisions, just think it over carefully. Representatives of this type analyze information well, and are also fair and objective.
An F-type is a person for whom you cannot write off a physics problem, but go to him first to share your joy or misfortune. These are empaths for whom the nature of human feelings is almost always more important than anything else. These are people with a developed emotional intelligence, and it is he, not logic, who directs their actions.
4. Judgment - perception (JP scale).
Those who belong to the R-type, are incapable of comprehensive monitoring and planning, but can perceive a lot of information and at once through several channels. They are multitasking, do a good job in a short time, do not panic when something goes wrong. Changes are very easy for such people, because the ability to adapt is their strength.
J-types , on the contrary, are single-tasking, prone to planning and algorithmization. For them, first of all, stability is important, they try to eliminate chaos and approach the solution of any problem fully armed, having thought through everything. Such people are able to set goals well, set priorities and achieve results.
A total of 16 combinations of types are possible, each of which describes a person in detail.
And now - the promised four questions that will help you determine your type:
- You are tired and urgently need to recharge the batteries. What will you do: communicate with friends (E) or read / watch movies at home (I)?
- What description fits you better? I love to live in the moment, without departing from reality, paying attention to the details and doing everything necessary (S). I love ideas and theories, I like to imagine the future, I take a great interest in symbols and meanings, I often dream (N).
- You need to make an important decision: for example, where to go to study or whether to part with a partner. How will you argue: logical and rational (T) or listening to the heart, taking into account the emotions and feelings of other people (F)?
- You are about to attend an event. Do you prefer to plan and organize everything in advance (J) or act spontaneously, flexibly and according to circumstances (P)?
Now add up your four letters and read the result!
At the top is lonely. Strategists know this well - this is one of the rarest and most strategically gifted personality types. Strategists make up only 2% of the population, and women with this type of personality are a special rarity (only 0.8%).
It is often difficult for them to find like-minded people who can support their tireless intellect and thinking of a chess player. People with the type of personality Stratega are gifted with rich imagination and at the same time resolute, ambitious, but secretive, extremely curious, but do not waste their energy.
The type of personality Scientist is quite rare and makes up only 3% of the population: this is very good, because there is no more trouble for such people than to be “like everyone else.”
Scientists are proud of their ingenuity and creative kind, unique vision and lively intelligence. Such a person may be a famous philosopher, architect, or an eccentric professor. Scientists own many scientific discoveries in history.
Commanders are inborn leaders. People with this type of personality unite in themselves charisma and confidence, they have authority, which gathers crowds around one common goal. Commanders are often characterized by a ruthless level of rationality and direct their energy, confidence and a sharp mind to achieve the planned goals.
It is probably good that such people make up only 3% of the population, without overshadowing the more timid and sensitive personality types that make up the rest of the world, but we should thank Commanders for the many companies and institutions whose services we use every day.
The polemicist is the greatest devil's advocate who successfully lays out all arguments and opinions into small parts, blowing them in the wind for everyone to see. Unlike more goal-oriented individuals, Polemists do it all not because they are trying to achieve a strategic goal or a deep-seated goal, but simply for pleasure.
Nobody loves mental fights as much as Polemicists, because it gives them the opportunity to train their exceptionally sharp mind, a broad knowledge base and the ability to unite disparate ideas to prove their case. The Polemists have a strange combination of qualities - they are uncompromisingly honest, but at the same time they will argue relentlessly, defending an idea in which they do not really believe. They will play the role of someone else to challenge the truth from another point of view.
The activist is a very rare type of person. Activists make up less than 1% of the population, but leave a bright mark on the world. They have an innate sense of idealism and morality, and they are distinguished from other idealists by determination and purposefulness. Activists are not lazy dreamers, but people who can take concrete steps to achieve their goals and implement a long-term strategy.
Activists tend to do the purpose of their lives to help others, but although such people can often be met at work aimed at helping others or charity, their real desire is to get to the heart of the problem so that the question of saving people never comes up.
The mediators are true idealists, always looking for a spark of good even in the worst of people or events in an attempt to improve the situation. Although many perceive them as calm, restrained, even shy people, the Intermediaries burn the inner flame and passion, which may shine at some point.
Constituting only 4% of the population, individuals like the Mediator are often at risk of being misunderstood - but when they find people who think like this, the harmony that emerges becomes a source of joy and inspiration. Intermediaries are driven by principles rather than logic, emotion, or practicality. In deciding how to move forward, they will take into account such considerations as honor, beauty, morality, and virtue.
Coaches are natural leaders full of passion and charisma. Constituting only about 2% of the population, these people are found among politicians, coaches and mentors. They spread influence and inspire others to achieve in order to improve the world.
Coaches are naturally self-assured and have an impact on people. They proudly and joyfully demonstrate to others how to improve themselves and the world around them.
A wrestler is a real free spirit. Wrestlers often become ringleaders at parties, but they are not very interested in the hype and are not inclined to enjoy the moment. They enjoy social and emotional contact with others.
Charming, independent, energetic, and compassionate - those 7% of the population they make up are definitely in any crowd.
Type of person Administrator is considered one of the most common and makes up 13% of the population. The defining characteristics of this type — integrity, practical logic, and tireless pursuit of duty — make Administrators the vital core of many families and organizations that value traditions, rules, and standards (for example, in law firms, government organizations, or the army).
Administrators prefer to take responsibility for their actions and be proud of the work they do. When they work on the task, they spare neither energy nor energy, completing the tasks carefully and patiently.
The defender is very unique, since many of his abilities are contrary to his individual traits. Sensitive Defenders may become enraged if you need to protect your family or friends; calm and secretive, they tend to have well-developed communication skills with people and strong social relationships. And although they strive for security and stability, such individuals can be very open to change if they feel that they are understood and respected.
Advocates are true altruists who respond with good to good with abundance, and perceive the work and people they believe in with enthusiasm and generosity. There is hardly any other type that represents such a large part of the population - almost 13%.

In their hearts, the Consuls are social creatures and strive to keep up with what their friends are doing. Discussing scientific theories or arguing about international politics, you are unlikely to attract the attention of the Consul for a long time. Consuls are more concerned with tangible, practical issues, such as raising their social status and observing others.
Virtuosos love to try new things by touch and eye, touching and exploring the world around them with calm rationalism and inspired curiosity. People with this type of personality are inborn creators, moving from project to project, building useful and useless for the sake of the process itself and gaining new experience as they progress. Often there are mechanics or engineers: for the Virtuoso there is no greater pleasure than fiddling with the mechanisms, disassembling and assembling them again, making them a little better than they were before.
Virtuosos like to help others, to share their experiences, so it is a pity that this type of personality is rarely met - only 5% of the population. Female Virtuosos are especially rare, and the standard gender roles that society offers them are poorly suited to their character.
Artists are real creative personalities, but not necessarily in the standard meaning of the word, meaning that they paint little happy ponies.

A businessman always influences his immediate environment; The best way to find him at a party is to follow the whirlpool of people following someone who moves from group to group. Ridiculous and artistic, with a rude and worldly sense of humor, Traders love to be the center of attention.

The theory, abstract concepts and ponderous discussions about global problems and their consequences will not interest the Deltsov for a long time.
