Though no personality test can give a 100% accurate description of anyone, I believe the Myers Briggs is one of the best personality tests that exists today; it’s based on a large volume of psychology research. The personality test has been around for over 70 years, and it’s used in the military, schools, universities and by small and large companies, among many other places. Over 2 million people take this personality test every year.
After taking the exam, you’ll recieve your 4 letters which place in you in 1 of 16 personality types categories. My 4 letters have consistently been INTJ for the past 4 years.
Each personality category (your 4 letters) offers interesting insights about your strengths, weaknesses, preferred work style and environment and so much more. When you read the personality breakdown, you’ll be surprised by the level of accuracy it provides. I often found myself thinking “Wow, that’s is so me.”.
I like this quote which summarizes the benefits of becoming more self-aware about yourself:
The most successful people share the common trait of self-awareness. They recognize the situations that will make them successful, and this makes it easy for them to find ways of achieving objectives that fit their behavioral style. They also understand their limitations and where they are not effective and this helps them understand where not to go or how not to be as well. Those who understand their natural behavioral preferences are far more likely to pursue the right opportunities, in the right way, at the right time, and get the results they desire. - Unknown
If you haven’t taken the Myers Briggs Personality test, I highly recommend you check it out. It only takes about 10-15 minutes.
