Jung’s Personality Types: The Foundation of the MBTI
The premise of Jungian theory is that there are 16 different personality types, each comprised of four preferences for how an individual energises, perceives information, makes decisions, and lives their life. There are two choices for each preference which can be visualized as a range, with individuals favoring one more than the other.
- Energises (Extroversion v. Introversion)
- Perceives information (Sensing v. INtuition)
- Makes decisions (Thinking v. Feeling)
- Lives their life (Judging v. Perceiving)
