Have you ever wondered whether you were an extrovert or an introvert? Do you ever feel like you’re a square peg trying to fit into a round hole? Today I want to introduce you to our new personality questionnaire. This questionnaire is the result of two years of research, coaching, and surveying people from all walks of life.
If you want to skip past the other information you can take the questionnaire here. But I would encourage you to read on so that you can make sure you’re getting the best results.
What Is This Personality Questionnaire Based On?
Our questionnaire is based on a combination of Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs-Myers theories on psychological type. As an MBTI® practitioner I’ve seen how many people get inaccurate results from online tests. And while I think the best possible way to type yourself is through getting a certified consultation with an MBTI® practitioner, this is an alternative free option to get you pointed in the right direction.
To make this questionnaire as accurate as I could I combined questions about the dichotomies (I/E, S/N, T/F, J/P) with questions related to Carl Jung’s cognitive functions (Te/Fe, Ti/Fi, Se/Si, Ne/Ni).
Is This Questionnaire 100% Accurate?
Unfortunately, there is no perfect questionnaire. If you answer a questionnaire while you’re feeling social and happy you might get a different result than if you answer when you’re feeling worn out and reclusive. That’s why it’s very important to answer the questions based on how you are in your average, most stable state of mind.
Tips for Getting the Most Accurate Result:
- Remember that you might modify your personality at work or as a parent. If you answer based only on those versions of yourself your answers might not match your true personality. Try to answer based on your most natural state of mind.
- Don’t answer based on how you want to be – answer based on your most natural tendencies.
- Don’t take the test when you’re highly stressed. The results might be skewed because your personality can be altered during states of stress.
- Remember to scroll down on each question to be sure you’re not missing any options.
- Try to take the test alone or with one person who knows you very well. Being around a lot of people can alter your focus and give you mixed opinions on which selection is more “You.”
- Remember that you can’t fail this test. There are no wrong answers!
Why You Might Get a Different Result Than You’re Expecting:
Don’t worry! There are a lot of really inaccurate online tests out there. As an MBTI® practitioner I’ve noticed an uptick in mistyped people since the emergence of many of the more popular free online tests.
Below are the most frequent mistypes I’ve seen for each personality type:
– ISFPs often mistype as INFJs, INFPs, or even INTJs
– ISFJs often mistype as INFPs or INFJs
– ISTPs often mistype as INTJs, INTPs, or ISTJs
– ISTJs often mistype as INTJs
– ESFPs often mistype as ENFPs
– ESTPs often mistype as ENTJs or ISTPs
– ESFJs often mistype as ENFJs
– ESTJs often mistype as ENTJs or INTJs
– INFPs often mistype as INFJs
– INTPs often mistype as INTJs
– INFJs often mistype as INFPs or INTPs
– INTJs often mistype as INTPs or ENTJs
– ENFPs often mistype as INFPs
– ENTPs often mistype as ENTJs or INTPs
– ENFJs often mistype as INFJs
– ENTJs often mistype as ESTJs
So if you get a result that doesn’t resonate you, check back with this list to see if there’s a possible alternative that would suit you better.
