Know Yourself | Does your career fits your personality?


          Are you sociable or do you enjoy much of your alone time? Are you one of the YOLO population or do you overthink before you act? Do you act according to logic or through feeling? Do you enjoy the travel or your destination? These are some of the personality indicators which are  utilized in studying  peoples personality types in the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) Test. This test is based on people’s self-development and interaction with others. It uses the widely known personality inventory developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs which are based on the psychological theories by Carl Gustav Jung.

          There are available free resources and tests online which you could visit to come up with your 4-letter combination which we will explain further. We found this one online and you must get back to this article to get your explanation. Just copy this link to your browser.

          According to Myers, the following are the dichotomies / divisions that differs people from one another – the “Type Preferences”

1. Extraversion      or        Introversion:
2. Sensing               or        INtuition
3. Thinking             or       Feeling
4. Judging               or       Perceiving

Their Meanings:

  • Extraversion  – those who enjoy socializing and tend to be more enthusiastic, assertive, talkative, and animated.
  • Introversion – those who prefer self-reflection and individual activities. They also prefer to observe before participating in an activity. Tend to be more quiet, ‘peaceful’, and reserved”.
  • Sensing – refers to processing data through the five senses. Sensing people focus on the present and prefer to “learn by doing” rather than thinking it through. The YOLO people.
  • Intuition – people who are keener to the meaning and patterns behind information. They are more focused on how the present would affect the future. They easily see the big picture rather than the details”.
  • Thinking – people who are objective and base their decision on hard logic and facts. They tend to analyze the pros and cons of a situation and notice inconsistencies.
  • Feeling – they base their decisions on principles and personal values. When making decisions, they consider other people’s feelings and take it in account. They are more governed by their heart.
  • Judging – people who outwardly display themselves when making decisions. Judging people have a tendency to be organized and prompt. They find the outcome more rewarding than the process of creating something. Judging people seek closure”
  • Perceiving – people who prefer flexibility and live their life with spontaneity. Que sera sera. They dislike structure and prefer to adapt to new situations rather than plan for it. They tend to be open to new options and experiences. While working on a project, they enjoy the process more than the outcome. Come what may as they say it.
