Who doesn’t love a personality quiz? The Myers-Briggs test is a personality quiz that categorizes you based on four different aspects of your personality in the form of four different letters. If you don’t know your Myers-Briggs type, go take the test and come back!

For those of you who are new to Myer-Briggs personality types, here’s a quick breakdown of the meaning behind the letters:

“I” means introverted, and “E” means extroverted.

“N” means intuitive, and “S” means sensors.

“F” means feelers, and “T” means thinkers.

“J” means judgers, and “P” means perceivers.

There are 16 different combinations of these letters that each make up a unique personality! Obviously, this is not all-encompassing of your entire personality and there are many different intersections and experiences that make us who we are, but it’s always fun to take a personality quiz and see what category you are!
