Your Personality Type

Your Personality Type in the Population
Personality Types in Population Legend

Your personality type is ENTJ. This is based on your four Preferences: Extraversion (E), Intuition (N), Thinking (T) and Judging (J).

Many of today's theories of psychological typology are based on the work of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung, who wrote Psychological Types in 1921. He was the founder of analytical psychology, which studies the motivations underlying human behavior.

Your personality type is a detailed classification of the innate characteristics that make you who you are. Each of the four temperaments can be divided into four types, making a total of 16 distinct personality types. As with Temperament, your type is determined by the strength of your preferences.

No personality type is better than another. Each person has a unique set of equally valuable characteristics. Understanding your type can be useful in many ways, including relationships and school or career.

Your Cognitive Functions

You engage the world through four cognitive functions. Each function is directed outward toward people and surroundings (Extraverted) or inward toward your thoughts (Introverted). Your primary function is Extraverted Thinking and secondary is Introverted Intuition.

Extraverted Thinking (Primary Function)

You use this function most often. While Thinking (T), you make decisions based on logic. The Extraverted Thinking function enables you to organize and categorize items such as thoughts and arguments. It is the ability to see the logical consequences of actions. It follows sequence and organization.

Introverted Intuition (Secondary Function)

Your use of this function is somewhat high. With Intuition (N), you process data through impressions, possibilities and meanings. Introverted Intuition enables you to have a sense about the future. It is the ability to grasp a pattern or plan. Information that is commonly hard to understand and dissect is more easily processed through Introverted Intuition.

Extraverted Sensing (Tertiary Function)

You use this function but to a lesser degree. Through Sensing (S), you process data with your five senses. The Extraverted Sensing function allows you to process life through your experiences. It is being aware of what is seen, smelled, touched, heard and tasted. It is being energized by experience and living "in the moment."

Introverted Feeling (Least Function)

You use this function least of the four. When Feeling (F), you make decisions based on feelings, so the Introverted Feeling function allows you to know what you value. It is the ability to see through others and know what they are really like as if you had internal radar. When you identify a person with similar values, there is a desire to connect.

Your Temperament

Your Temperament in the Population Your temperament is NT since you lean toward the Intuition (N) and Thinking (T) preferences. We identify your temperament by the strength of your Preferences. Many psychologists, philosophers and other thinkers have for centuries proposed that there are four temperaments that can describe a person.

Temperament is a more broad classification than Personality Type. Each of the four temperaments is like an umbrella over four related personality types (for a total of 16 personality types).

NT - The "Intellectual"

Intellectuals (NTs) are intelligent, independent and determined.

They are high-achievers, driven not only to acquire but also to master large amounts of information. They are self-sufficient, logical and value reason. While Intellectuals have a desire to know everything, they also tend to question anything. Their keen interest in investigation and questioning make them great researchers and inventors.

They are good at seeing the "big picture." They work well alone and are able to concentrate and study for long periods of time. Intellectuals enjoy abstract and theoretical discussions. They respect brilliance and self-reliance in others. Intellectuals dislike illogical instructions and emotional conversations.

"Personality is that which is most intimate to me—that by which I must act out my life. It is that by which I belong to man, that by which I am able to reach after God; and He has given to me this pearl of great price. It is an immortal treasure; it is mine, it is His, and no man shall pluck it out of His hand." — Hugh Reginald Haweis
