Myers Briggs Type Indicator Online
Discover your personality type with the real MBTI® assessment
Taking the official Myers Briggs Type Indicator® online is the quickest, most accurate way to discover your personality type and explore what it means for you. Explore your preferences, how you think about things, and how you approach the world around you.
How the MBTI works
When you take the official MBTI online, you'll answer questions about your unique style of getting energized, making decisions, organizing your life, and learning about the world around you. Your responses show your preferences on four facets of personality:
- Extraverted or Introverted? Do you get your energy from other people, or from your own internal world?
- Sensing or Intuitive? Do you focus on the present and what you can see, or the future and what you can imagine?
- Thinking or Feeling? Do you make decisions based on logic, or on values and people?
- Judging or Perceiving? Do you prefer things structured and organized, or flexible and spontaneous?
Put together, these four personality facets create a four-letter personality type, such as ENFP or ISTJ. Discovering your personality type can help you to explore and understand yourself as an individual.
Who should take the MBTI
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator assessment may be taken by anyone age 14 and up. People take the MBTI for many reasons: to plan for a satisfying career, to improve their relationships, to understand their personal strengths and weaknesses, or just to explore an interest in psychology.
Because your Myers-Briggs personality type describes how you approach every area of your life, it can help you improve yourself at work, at home, and in relationships.
Understanding who you are makes you more prepared to make choices that will make the most of your strengths.

Q. Why should I pay for the official MBTI® instead of taking a free test online?
Taking a free personality type quiz can be a fun and interesting exercise, but it's not recommended if you really need accurate information about your type. The most popular free quizzes online were developed by untrained hobbyists, not professional psychologists. Generally, you cannot rely on free "Myers Briggs" tests to correctly identify your personality type.
In contrast, the official Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment has been rigorously analyzed by professional psychologists. What's more, the real MBTI is always provided with a personalized, professional interpretation session. This allows you to verify your type with an expert, and apply your new knowledge to your work and life.
