In Your Own Words


The test evaluates an individual's personality in four categorical types by asking "yes" or "no" questions to evaluate a person's character.
There are two possibilities for each of the four areas of personality, leading to 16 distinct personality types.

The four areas are:
Introverted (I) or Extroverted (E)
Sensation (S) or Intuition (N)
Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)
