Step 1. READ THIS FIRST...
Your test is only 2 minutes away.
A personality test takes only a few minutes, and will
assign you one of 16 personality types (INFP, ESTP,
ISFJ, etc.) based on the research of Jung / Briggs-
(MBTI). This testing and personality
classification system is used by universities and
Tests are free and anonymous. No personal info or
login is required. Just click any one of the test
links below. Take the test, hit 'Submit', and
you'll instantly know your 'type'.
Insights gained from knowing your personality type — and
those of your family members — can be absolutely
You only need to take one test to know your type.
But there are a few similar tests available online, so
you may want to take more than one test, just to make
sure of your type.
There are NO wrong answers on any of these tests, and of
course, honesty is required for accurate results.
Answers should be based on the 'real you', the natural
person you are at home.
Once you know your personality type, jump to the top of
the next column to learn more about your
strengths, weaknesses, and much more. (All
information is free!)
Personality tests are normally recommended for
individuals over the age of 16, when personality traits
show up more clearly in testing.
[Children as young as 7 or 8 can typically understand
most of the questions in the second test shown
below. Though test results for anyone under 16
should probably be viewed as a general indication of
personality, rather than a clearly-defined type. More

The tests above are designed to 'figure out' which
of the 16 personality types is most like your own.
But you can also try assessing your own traits
directly and better understand what the test is
analyzing by using one of the simple Type

first — using any of the links above — and then proceed
to the next column to learn more about your type.

About the 16 Personality Types
Myers-Briggs (MBTI) 'Model' - Article explaining how the 16
personality types came into being through the research
of Jung, Myers, and Briggs. It also explains what
each letter of the 'four-letter' acronyms (representing
the types) stand for.

Step 2. AFTER you take the test, and you've
written down your personality type (ENTJ, ISTP, ESFJ,
etc.), continue reading here.
You're only 3 minutes away from learning all about your
Note: It is highly recommended that you take the
test BEFORE reading about the different types.
Then you can encourage your family members to take
the test and learn how each of you relates to the world
and interacts differently.
typology' is not an exact science by any means, and many
researchers/authors have attempted to understand and
explain the various 'types' in different ways, you will
sometimes find contradictory information regarding
'type' characteristics, (varying from one source to
another, whether online or in one of the many books
written on this topic). However, the general
characteristics of a 'type' are almost always the same,
regardless of which source you're reading.
Studying descriptions of your personality type and that
of your spouse and children can open up a new world of
understanding in personal relationships. What
annoys us or confuses us or frustrates
us about ourselves and others will suddenly make sense
like never before.
It will change the way you relate to others, often
greatly improving interaction; and it will change the
way you relate to yourself. Never again will you
expect yourself to 'be like' someone else or for anyone
else to be like you.
Once you realize how different the 16 personality types
really are, you'll see individuals through a different
lens — their own personality type! You'll
learn to recognize their basic personality type and
accept them for who they are.
Each 'type' has its own unique set of pros and cons,
strengths and weaknesses. We all have a few
idiosyncrasies or eccentricities, typically shared by
the 1-10% of the population having our personality type.
Appreciating the wide-ranging spectrum of humanity becomes
much easier when equipped with a thorough knowledge and
understanding of personality differences.
Best wishes in your quest to master the art of
understanding yourself and others — and improving the
way you relate to every person you'll ever know for the
rest of your life!
After you've taken the test and you know your type...
CLICK YOUR PERSONALITY TYPE in the box below. That
will take you to a section with an overview of your
personality type and multiple links to
articles pertaining to your type, where you can see what different personality
have to say about your type.
Note: On personality websites, you will often see
different "labels" given to these types, and some
labels/descriptions will overlap with others, since
there are similarities among certain types. Also,
population %'s given for each type are usually
inaccurate, as survey numbers vary widely.
