2) Thinking and Feeling
This is the second broad category of the Myers Briggs Personality Test, in which this test shows that a person makes decisions based on thoughts or feelings. If a person takes decisions through emotion then he will also care about the feelings of others and will take decisions accordingly.
In thinking person will make decisions based on his experiences and in feeling he will think emotionally. It is generally seen that people who think emotionally have a very soft heart and they can easily forgive anyone no matter how bad the person has done.
Write T next to I or E if you take decisions through thinking or write F next to I or E if you take decisions through feelings.
3) Intuiting and Sensing
Intuition means gut feeling means strong feeling of the person. Sometimes this feeling is so strong that one starts taking this feeling in reality. In intuition, a person creates his own thinking and can easily understand any situation and make himself comfortable in that place. For example- You must have seen people telling themselves before going on stage that they can do anything. It is a gut feeling that will give the courage to do anything. Individuals with an intuitive personality live their lives mostly in imagination.
Sensing means using your body’s five senses to sense the environment of any place and respond accordingly. People with sensitive personality live in reality and practical life and accept the difficult things of life easily. They can also heal themselves very soon from any bad incident. They always take decisions according to their mindset.
Write I next to IT or ET if you take decisions through Intuiting or write S next to IF or EF if you take decisions through Sensing.
4) Perceiving and Judging
Perceiving means involve yourself as per of your surroundings. A person with a perceptive personality will not like to make plans. Instead of judging, they understand their surroundings. Means they think that everything will be good in future even if they don’t work hard. These types of people enjoy their present to the fullest without thinking about the future.
People with judging personality like to judge themselves or others and based on this judgment they meet new people and make friends. They always follow a proper plan for their future which is made by themselves. These types of people always notice two sides of any situation one positive and the other negative.
There are 16 personality types under these four broad categories of personality. After writing down the short form of whatever personality you have, you will get a unique four letter word and that is your personality type.
