The Jung Typology Test is designed to give the participant a 4-letter formula which describes strength preferences of one’s personality type. The formula is based on whether the participant favors Extraversion or Introversion, Sensing or iNtuition, Thinking or Feeling, and Judging or Perceiving when it comes to the participant’s general attitude. One will also receive a Temperament, which is based on one’s personality type formula, and can be used to make somewhat accurate predictions of the participants preferred behavior. In this essay I will discuss the results that I received after taking the test.

Its purpose is to give the participant a 4-letter formula which describes strength preferences of the participant’s personality type. The formula comes from four different sections; Extraversion or Introversion, Sensing or iNtuition, Thinking or Feeling, and Judging or Perceiving. Based on the 4-letter formula, one will also receive a two-letter Temperament, which offers a good prediction of one’s behavior (Kroeger, Thuesen, & Rutledge, 2002).

Sometimes unexpected events happen. In those cases a lot of people do not know what to do because they have previously failed to look for other possibilities and what other random evens that could possibly occur during the mission. Interesting personal application Feeling Thinking versus feeling is the next portion of the personality type. This letter covers how we make decisions. In the book Type Talk at Work, the authors explain that Thinkers tend to be more firm, just and analytical, whereas Feelers are more involved, subjective, and tend to be known for their caring nature
