The more we're required to sum up our personalities on the internet with as few characters as possible, the more the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test results become useful resources. Because while writing "donut lover and outdoors enthusiast" tells people what you like, it doesn't exactly disclose what you're like. But if you haven't taken the test yet, or don't understand what the Myers-Briggs letters mean, you might be pretty overwhelmed by the idea of branding yourself with just your personality type.
That said, there's nothing to be scared of. The personality test is based on Jungian psychology, a subject that you probably learned a little bit about in high school but never thought too much about. In 1943, the personality type indicator manual was published with the added research of Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers — one of the most epic mother-daughter teams in history. The indicator test that they came up with included 16 distinct personality types. Each personality is made up of a combination of four different personality traits from a list of eight different letters, or possibilities. Here, I've made a clear list of what each of those eight different letters mean, so that after you take the test, you can have a complete understanding of how your personality is indicated — and how to be able to embrace your type and share it with the world.
