Profiles of the Sixteen Personality Types

Which personality type best describes you? Are you an INTP, an ENFJ, an ISFP, an ESTJ? Knowing your type can help you understand how you function in relationships, what career is best for you, and how you can use your strengths to create a happy and satisfying life.

Isabel Briggs Myers created the sixteen personality types with the help of her mother, Katharine Briggs, and the theories of psychologist Carl Jung. Since then, much research has been done into how each type functions at work, at home, and in relationships. Our in-depth personality profiles incorporate Briggs Myers' work, along with modern personality research, to give you a complete picture of your personality type.
