Discover The Sixteen Personality Types

2 minutes read

The MBTI is a tool to understand yourself and your own personality. Using the MBTI and Carl Jungs cognitive functions, you can better understand your own thought process, your emotional needs and values. There are in total sixteen personality types.

The 16 Personalities

What are the 16 Personalities?

They are 16 unique types, some introverted, and some more extroverted. The iNtuitives are more creative, and the Sensing types are more traditional. The Feeling types are more cooperation oriented, and the Thinking types are more motivated by conflict and challenge. Judging types, finally, are more driven towards a single goal, while Perceiving types focus more on freedom to enjoy the moment.

Are the 16 personalities real?

The 16 personalities are just based on a framework, and ultimately, there are as many personality types as there are people on earth. Still, the 16 personalities discuss fascinating differences between people and help us better understand ourselves and other people

Can you really categorise people?

You can choose to be whoever you want to be. However, most people tend to have a relatively consistent personality. While we all change, people tend to have a set of core values that stay more or less the same throughout life. When I study the 16 personalities, I focus my study on understanding those core values.

Why should you study the 16 personalities?

People are happier if they can live life more authentically. We should all aim to be ourselves and to realise our core values. By understanding what you want in life, you can make decisions that make you a happier person.
