Personality Type Quiz

Everyone is unique. However we all have similarities. Understanding your personality type helps you to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Nothing about your personality is black and white, but we all fall along a spectrum. For example, you are probably not 100% an extravert or 100% an introvert, but you generally lean more in one direction than the other.

Whether you're interested in building on your strengths or developing on your weaknesses, knowing your personality type is an invaluable tool. Additionally, the more you understand the differences in personality types, the easier it is to understand how some people are vastly different than you. 

Discovering Your Personality Type

Each personality type is defined by four letters. Extraverts start with E, for example, while introverts start with I. An extraverted, sensing, thinking, judging personality is ESTJ, while an introverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiving personality is INFP. Each letter comes from the first letter of each trait, except for the letter "N," which stands for iNtuition – because "I" already stands for Introvert.

Ask yourself the following four questions to determine where you rate in each of the opposing traits. While it's often helpful to consider how friends and family see you, remember that how you appear to others often changes in different situations and doesn't always reflect how you really feel inside. Your own opinion about yourself is all that really matters here. 

Select one option for each of the following four questions and your 4-letter personality type will be revealed at the bottom of the page. 

Q1. Are You an Extravert or an Introvert?

Extraverts are more outgoing and more comfortable in large groups. Introverts are more comfortable being alone. Introverts usually prefer having a couple close friends, while extraverts may have several.

Extraverts get their energy by interacting with others, while introverts get their energy by being on their own. Of course, extraverts need some alone time too, just as introverts do need human company.

This can be a tough answer for some people. A general rule of thumb is that if you’re not certain which you are, you’re probably an extravert.

Q2. Are You a Sensing or Intuitive Person?

Sensing refers to the five senses (vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell). Sensing people remember details more vividly, while intuitive people remember their impressions of events more. 

Sensors like to rely on facts and hands-on experience when solving a problem, while intuitives tend to jump from one idea possibility to another. 

Sensors are more likely to gather facts and assemble them into a big picture. Intuitives, on the other hand, are more likely to rely on metaphors and symbols and assemble a big picture quickly and modify it as needed when new facts come in.

Q3. Are You a Thinking or Feeling Person?

Of course, thinkers can feel and feelers can think, but everyone tends to prefer one over another. Thinkers generally excel at technical knowledge, while feelers prefer human interactions. 

Thinkers can sometimes appear to be cold to others, while feelers appear to be overly emotional. 

Thinkers rely on logic and objective data and believe the truth is more important than how people respond to facts. Feelers rely more on their emotions and believe the truth is not always as important as how you make people feel.

Q4. Are you a Judging or Perceiving Person?

Judgers are decisive. They like to do one thing at a time. They often rely on to-do lists and work consistently on each task required to reach their goals.

Perceivers appear to be more laid back and will often take life as it comes to them. They are more likely dabble between tasks and they may contemplate things for a long time before getting to work. They thrive on pushing deadlines and working in sudden bursts of energy.

This can be a tricky one. First of all, don't be misled by the word "judging." It's about being decisive and relying on your own judgements, not about being judgemental. Secondly, these two traits have a lot to do with you appear to others. Perceivers, for example, may appear to be laid back, even when they are completely focused on something.
