Learn how you perceive the world and make decisions
This psychometric questionnaire is designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. Based on Carl Jung's personality types, the tool determines the attitude types and consciousness.
This application is targeted at getting your personality type as viewed by your friends and colleagues. This will get you a perspective of how others judge your personality type. You can also invite others to take this test and see their personality types after they agree to share the results.
According to Jung, the psyche is an apparatus for adaptation and orientation, and consists of a number of different psychic functions.
- Extraverts are action oriented, while introverts are thought oriented.
- Extraverts seek breadth of knowledge and influence, while introverts seek depth of knowledge and influence.
- Extraverts often prefer more frequent interaction, while introverts prefer more substantial interaction.
- Extraverts recharge and get their energy from spending time with people, while introverts recharge and get their energy from spending time alone.
Sensing and intuition are the information-gathering (perceiving) functions.
-Individuals who prefer sensing are more likely to trust information that is in the present, tangible and concrete
- Sensing individuals tend to distrust hunches, which seem to come "out of nowhere. They prefer to look for details and facts. For them, the meaning is in the data.
- Individuals who prefer intuition tend to trust information that is more abstract or theoretical, that can be associated with other information (either remembered or discovered by seeking a wider context or pattern). They may be more interested in future possibilities. They tend to trust those flashes of insight that seem to bubble up from the unconscious mind.
Thinking and feeling are the decision-making (judging) functions.
- Those who prefer thinking tend to decide things from a more detached standpoint, measuring the decision by what seems reasonable, logical, causal, consistent and matching a given set of rules.
- Those who prefer feeling tend to come to decisions by associating or empathizing with the situation, looking at it 'from the inside' and weighing the situation to achieve, on balance, the greatest harmony, consensus and fit, considering the needs of the people involved.
This fourth preference pair, Judging and Perceiving, describes how you like to live your outer life; what are the behaviors others tend to see? Do you prefer a more structured and decided lifestyle (Judging) or a more flexible and adaptable lifestyle (Perceiving)
