Take the Jung Typology Test – What Kind of Person Are You?
By on December 23rd, 2009

carl_jung I see all kinds of tests and stupid quizzes that people take in places like Facebook and MySpace, or send via email. This is not one of those tests. Although there may be debate about whether personality tests are valid, the Jung (or Myers-Briggs) Type Indicator tests are most often used by professionals to evaluate people they plan to hire or give career advice to.

These tests consist of a series of questions that are designed to reveal the basic aspects of your personality. The original questionnaire from Myers-Briggs was based on theories from Carl Jung, and first published in 1962.

Here you can see an example of the questions:

Take the test:

You can take this Jung Typology Test at the Humanmetrices website. Naturally, in order to get good results, you have to be honest with yourself. When the test is over, you’ll see the resulting four letters which represent which of the 16 personality types best match your answers. There are also links providing detailed descriptions about each type.

I’ve taken this test twice over the last two years. Both times I ended up with the same result. I’m told that my personality is INTJ. According to some sources, this means that I’m a rare type, which only appears in about 1 to 4 percent of the population.

Techie Buzz Verdict:

The Humanmetrics site offers a great free service with few ads. It’s somewhat fun and also very informative. You might learn quite a bit more about what really motivates you and makes you act like you do.

      Thanks for the comment Rejean. We can often overcome the limits of our introversion. I used to have a terrible fear of public speaking. I've found that practice and being prepared really helps.
