Myers-Briggs Typology TestRobbin RoBards SmithOklahoma WesleyanAbstractThis paper reviews the results of the Myers-Briggs Typology test (MBTI). The Myers-Briggs Typology test is a questionnaire taken by an individual that indicates the psychological preferences of a person and how they see the world. “The Myers-Brigg typology is based on Jung’s theory of psychological types. It was constructed by the mother and daughter team of Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers” (Riggio, 2014). There are 16 personality trait combinations. The MBTI has a variety of applications which include help in career choices, couple compatibility, and self-reflection. This test is also an excellent tool for finding one’s learning and communication styles. Below is a summary of my type, the strengths and the weaknesses of this type, what I see and don’t see in this personality type, and the work preferences of my type vs, my preference in working. These are the results. Myers-Briggs Typology TestPERSONALITY TESTOut of 16 personality trait combinations, my type is ENFJ. ENFJ stands for extrovert, intuitive, feeling, judging. ENFJ’s are strong-willed, like people, make good schmoozers, and have extraordinary intuitive abilities which enables them to connect with all types of people. They like to focus on the big picture as opposed to the little details, they base their decisions on personal feelings, their principles, and their values, they like to have things in order and are well organized.Positive Traits – Natural charmers, have excellent communication skills, altruistic, broadminded, good listeners, and they make good leaders, Negative Traits – Overly sensitive, ENFJ’s often feel the need to ‘fix’ others, they sometimes make poor decisions based upon their hearts, they can be oversensitive to criticism, and sometimes involve themselves in others’ problems too much.I see these traits in my personality, plus a few more. I am a good teacher, I like diversity in people, I have excellent intuition, and can usually find the silver lining in most things. The negative qualities of my type are also where I see the negative qualities in myself. I do help people sometimes to my detriment and I do tend to make decisions with my heart and not my head. I do not agree with the overly sensitive part of what the test showed.CAREER CHOICES“The Jung Indicator for careers can determine occupations and areas in which people of a certain type find themselves most fulfilled, and are the most successful” (Jung, C., Briggs, K., Myers, I. (2019). ENFJ’s are natural organizers and are often attracted to leadership roles. They use their creativity to initiate humanitarian missions. They appreciate teamwork, they are forward-thinking and people-centered individuals. The ideal job for an ENFJ is a position that allows them to develop and implement ideas that improve the well-being of other people. Top careers for ENFJ are social worker, teacher, college administrator, reporter, human resource manager, flight attendant, actor, fitness trainer, entrepreneur, nurse, executive assistant.I agree with this assessment of careers in which I would be happy and content. In the past, I have been a teacher, an executive assistant, and an entrepreneur. I owned a gymnastics (fitness) studio. I also took the entrepreneur quiz and it showed that I would do good in a large-scale business. This business type is characterized by many clients and business contacts.ConclusionThe Myers-Briggs Typology Test is an excellent tool for finding the learning and communication styles of an individual. Of the 16 personality traits, ENFJ are known as sociable, active, good communicators, charmers, and someone that can see the big picture. ENFJ also have negative traits such as being overly sensitive, and not able to take criticism. Career choices for ENFJ include teacher, social worker, administrator, and entrepreneur. Overall my results of this test fit me very well.ReferencesJung, C., Briggs, K., Myers, I. (1944). Jung typology test. Retrieved from:, R.E. (2014). The truth about Myers-Briggs types. Retrieved from:
