The Type system is based on 4 aspects of human personality. We call these aspects of human personality dimensions because each one can be pictured as a range between opposite extremes.

 

No one is a 100% “thinker” or 100% feeler. We all have qualities that are typical of every type of person. Try to choose the personality types that seem most like you.

 

 

The first dimension of personality we are looking at is concerned with how we interact with the world and where we direct our energy. Introverts are more comfortable “interacting” with the world by thinking about it inside their heads, whereas extraverts like to interact more with other people

 

Some people are extroverted. These people identify more with the qualities in the left column. Some people are introverted. These people identify more with the qualities in the right column.

The second dimension of personality has to do with the kind of information we naturally notice. People take in and think about information differently.

While sensors focus on the way things are, intuitives focus on the way things could be.

 

Some people are sensors. These people identify more with the qualities in the left column. Some people are intuitives. These people identify more with the qualities in the right column.

The third dimension of personality is about how we make decisions. Thinkers made decisions based on data, whereas feelers make decisions based on what they think is right. While thinkers pride themselves on their ability to think practically, feelers pride themselves on their ability to be empathetic and compassionate.

 

Some people are thinkers. These people identify more with the qualities in the left column. Some people are feelers. These people identify more with the qualities in the right column.

The fourth dimension of personality is about whether we prefer to live in a more structured way, making decisions before we act, or in a more spontaneous way, taking in information and changes plans as we go along. Judgers tend to live in a very orderly way. They like structure and making decisions. Perceivers don’t like living in a structured way. They like to perceive what is around them and then decide what to do.

 

Some people are judgers. These people identify more with the qualities in the left column. Some people are perceivers. These people identify more with the qualities in the right column.
