Would you like to understand more about Jung Briggs Myers Personality?

This website is an essential reference for anyone who is trying to understand where, why and how to access the MBTI® and alternative measures of Jung Personality Types.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the most widely used assessment of Jungian Personality. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Instrument (MBTI®) was not developed by Jung, his work was put to practical use by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs when they created the Indicator in 1962. The MBTI has undergone 50 years of development and is considered to be the best known and most trusted personality assessment tool available today by its publisher CPP.

This article reviews all popular measures of Jungian Personality (including the free ones!) providing essential information regarding their reliability, costs, validity, accessibility and usability. We review:

Jung Personality and the Briggs Myers MBTI ® 

Jungian Personality theory was developed by a Swiss psychologist Carl Jung as the result of his observations of individual differences amongst people (which he found where not random, but formed patterns that reflected mental functions).  Jung’s work on Psychological type was published in his 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923).

Jung Personality Type theory
Jung identified 3 sets of preferences that fell along three different categories.

  • How we perceive information – Sensing or Intuition preference
  • How we make decisions – Thinking or Feeling preference
  • How we are energized by the world – Extraversion or Introversion preference

Isabell Myers and Katherine Briggs developed the Myers-Briggs® instrument to turn Jung's Personality Type theory into an assessment tool enabling people to be able to identify  their type without having to sift through all the theory. In the process of reviewing Jung Personality Type theory, a third category and preference set was created. This was a preference for making decisions – Judging or Perceiving.

The four preferences.

  • Introversion/Extroversion. The Introversion/Extroversion (I/E) scale describes an individual's energy orientation. If you are extraverted you are motivated by the outside world of people, activity and stimulation. If you are introverted you prefer to focus on the world of inner thoughts and feelings. You may need time out from social activity to recharge your batteries.
  • Sensing/Intuition. The Sensing/Intuition (S/I) scale represents an individual's preference for the way in which they perceive information. It is represented as either a focus on facts and clear and concrete information (i.e., what currently exists) or a focus on a broader view of what is possible (focus on meanings and possibilities).
  • Thinking/Feeling. The Thinking/Feeling (T/F) scale represents an individual's focus when judging information. Those who prefer thinking decisions tend to make decisions based more on objective criteria or facts whereas those who prefer to make feeling based decisions give more weight to values and feelings in the decision making process.
  • Judging/Perceiving. The judging/perceiving (J/P) scale refers to how we live our outer life. Those with a judging preference prefer a more planned and orderly way of life. Things need to be controlled by you, organised and settled. Those with a perceiving preference are more flexible and spontaneous preferring to understand and adapt to the world.

The four letters of each preference combine to form your Briggs Myers Personality personality type e.g., Meyers Briggs ISTJ

Briggs Myers Personality Test Review


The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the most widely used assessment of Jungian Personality. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Instrument (MBTI®) was not developed by Jung, his work was put to practical use by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs when they created the Indicator in 1962. The MBTI has undergone 50 years of development and is considered to be the best known and most trusted personality assessment tool available today by its publisher CPP.

  • Validity:4/5
  • Moderate – High. Chapter 9 of the MBTI® Manual (3rd Edition) reviews over 100 studies that contribute to the development and validation of the Myers Briggs®. While there have been a lot of validation studies conducted on the MBTI® many of these studies are produced by the Center for the Application of Psychological Type and the Journal of Psychological Type. It can be argued that this research lacks a more objective, critical peer review.
  • Reliability:3/5
  • Moderate. The reliability of the MBTI when scores are treated as continuous variables rather than dichotomous variables is comparable. On retest, 75% to 90% of people tend to come out with the same score on 3/4 of the variables. The MTBI is not suitable for use on children.
  • Value for money: 3/5
  • Moderate. This is one of the more expensive commercially available Jungian Personality assessments available, however, it is also one of the most extensively supported and developed.
  • Useability:  5/5
  • High. The MBTI is available online and there are a number of reports and products to support its use.
  • Practitioner Accessibility:3/5
  • Low. To be able to administer the MBTI  in Australia  (and the U.S, U.K & Canada) you must complete a 4-day training course which costs around $2500. However, in the U.S., U.K and Canada it is sufficient to be a registered psychologist to practice with the MBTI. If you are not a registered psychologist you will need to complete this course. While this is quite an expensive initial outlay however, I have been on the course and it an invaluable experience in deepening your understanding of type and how to run Type workshops.

Jung Type Personality Test Review

The Jung Type Indicator (JTI) is a further development of Jungian Personality that aims to provide a modern, psychometrically sound measure of Jung’s typology. The Jung Type indicator was developed by PysTech using modern scaling techniques to provide a reliable and valid measure of people’s preferences for the Jungian Functions.

The most striking difference between the MBTI and the JTI  is that the JTI, in keeping with modern type theory, depicts psychological types as being best described by points on a continuum, rather than by discrete categories.  A continuous rather than categorical theory of personality appeals to both theorists and test-takers alike, who are uncomfortable with type putting you in a box.

Free Scholarly Jungian Psychometric Assessments Review


Jungian personality has also been captured by a number of free scholarly inventories including the Personal Preferences Self-description Questionnaire (PPSDQ; Thompson & Arneau, 1998), and Singer-Loomis Type Development Inventory (SL-TDI; Singer, Loomis, Kirkhart, & Kirkhart, 1996). Each instrument measures and represents Jungian (Jung, 1971) theory differently, the most notable difference being that MBTI measures the preferences with a force-choice inventory and presents the categorical representation of type (i.e., ENTP) where as the PPSDQ and SL-TDI present the preferences as continuous bi-polar dimensions.
