An introduction to MBTI, its origins, uses and criticisms

About this guide

The following is an introduction to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test and its 16 personality types. The aim of this guide is to inform adults who wish to learn more about themselves; including possible strengths and weaknesses, career options, and relationship compatibility, according to theories presented by personality psychology; specifically the MBTI test and the theory behind typology.  

It is important to note that the official test must be taken through an MBTI certified assessor or organisation. While there are numerous free online versions, the official standardised test is what websites, organisations and research papers refer to when they mention the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test.
