What are your four letters?

Figuring out what type of work is for you, starts with knowing yourself. For this there are many exercises and tests, with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) being one of the popular ones.

MBTI is a personality type test. It looks at 16 different personality types, based on four categories:

  1. Where do you focus your attention on? Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I).
  2. How do you obtain information? Sensing (S) or Intuition (N).
  3. How do you make decisions? Thinking (T) or Feeling (F).
  4. How do you deal with the outside world? Judging (J) or Perceiving (P).

The test gives you a 4 letter combination, representing your preferences. This may give you more understanding of who you are and also how you deal with others and with situations. MBTI is therefore also a popular tool within team building, to better understand each other within a team.

Examples of free online MBTI tests are 16 personalities and humanmetrics. The test outcomes also include examples of typical jobs for the personality types.
