Profiles of the 16 Myers Briggs Personality Types
The Sixteen Personality Types
The 16 personality types were created by Isabel Briggs Myers with the assistance of her mother, Katharine Briggs, who was a student of the personality theories of Carl Jung. Briggs identified four dimensions of personality, each of which described a dichotomy between two preferred ways of being. Myers created the descriptions of each of the sixteen types, and began the research that successfully associated personality type with a wide variety of life outcomes, including career choice, lifestyle, and relationship factors.
The personality profiles here are based on research from a variety of sources, including the original research done by Isabel Myers.
