The MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) is a psychological model developed by the two psychologists Isabel Briggs Myers and Katherine Cook Briggs in the sixties. It is mainly based on the works of the famous swiss doctor-psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. From left to right, Carl Gustav Jung, Isabel Briggs Myers, Katherine Cook Briggs .

It is, to date, one of the most acknowledged and used tests in the field of management, communication, self-developement, etc.

At the end of the test, you get one letter in each of the following dichotomies : (I/E), (N/S), (T/F), (J/P). For example INTJ, or still ESFJ, etc.

Each of these letters has a meaning of its own, (Introversion/Extroversion), (iNtuition/Sensation), (Thinking/Feeling), (Judgement, Perception). The understanding of these letters is the basis of the model. The latter is actually far more complex and embodies mot notably the Jungian cognitive functions For further information about MBTI, I invite you to follow this link :
