MBTI personality test: Take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator free online

The Myers-Briggs personality test is used with increasing frequently in Business and Human Resources for the purpose of building teams that can work effectively together by assembling these in such a way that its members complement one another.  This approach has proved useful not only by increasing productivity and the quality of the work but also by reducing quarrels between individuals within the assembled groups.

The Myers-Briggs test is based on Jungian Archetypes, classifying people into one of 16 personality types that result mathematically from a classification along four dichotomies.  The dichotomies are: Extroverted vs. Introverted, Sensing vs. iNtuitive, Feeling vs. Thinking, and Perceiving vs Judging.

The 16 Myers-Briggs personalities organized by functional style
MBTI's 16 personality archetypes organized by characteristic cognitive functions.

Your own archetype may or may not be stable throughout your lifespan depending on how deep you fall into one side of each dichotomy.  For example, I personally fluctuate between INFP (i.e., the Healer or Protector), INTP (i.e., the Architect or Mastermind), and sometimes even ENFP, and this is perfectly O.K.  As a result, I tend to take the test every year or two just to check and perhaps obtain some insight into a situation I've been facing.

Once you receive your result, you should head over to Wikipedia where there is a very in-depth description of the conceptual framework, its history, and methodology of the test, as well as individual wiki entries for each personality type.

I personally think everyone should know how their personality is skewed when it comes to these ancient archetypes.  So ---
