For those of you who are not familiar with Myers-Briggs, it is a personality profiling system based on Jung’s typological theory that was developed by Katherine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. In the Myers-Briggs typeology system, there are sixteen personality types consisting of four letters: E for extrovert or I for introvert, S for sensor or N for intuitive, T for thinker or F for feeler, and P for perceiver or J for judger. You can read more about Myers-Briggs here and find books about it here. Just for fun, here are the Myers-Briggs types of a whole lot of fictional characters.
