Zephyr-Briggs: What’s your personality type?



Carl Jung (pictured) created a revolutionary typing system that would eventually be incorporated into Myers-Briggs.

You might have a faint recollection of taking an online quiz (otherwise known as 16 Personalities) that would show you your personality type if you clicked bubble-shaped icons on your screen in a disparate pattern. You might not, and you may have no idea which famous sitcom character you’re like – but be honest, you’re dying to know.
Well, I have good news. I’m here to present you with a quick and highly accurate way to find out your Myers-Briggs (MBTI) “personality type,” or one of 16 groupings of people that share similar traits. In contrast to 16 Personalities, this fool-proof method will tell you your actual type and won’t leave you confused. I’ll share some mind-blowing, earth-shattering insights into who you are, what famous people and characters share a “type” with you, and what type of pizza you are (I’m just kidding about that last part, this isn’t Buzzfeed).

Which set of words best describes you? Think about what you are in your daily life, not what you want to be.
1. Experiencing, doing, observing and responding, adapting and varying, living in the present (Se)
2. Inferring, hypothesizing, seeing potentials, wondering and brainstorming, focusing on the future and its developments (Ne)
3. Recalling, linking, comparing and contrasting, noticing match and mismatch, thinking about the past (Si)
4. Foreseeing, conceptualizing, understanding complex patterns, synthesizing and symbolizing, looking toward the future (Ni)
Which set of words best describes you? Think about what you are in your daily life, not what you want to be.
1. Organized, coordinating and sequencing, segmenting, checking against criteria, information is based on “laws” or set rules (Te)
2. Considerate, adjusting and accommodating, affirming, checking appropriateness, attention is given to creating and maintaining harmonious relationships (Fe)
3. Following principles, categorizing and classifying, analyzing, checking consistency with standards, tendency to “get to the root of things” and make sense of them (Ti)
4. Following values, harmonizing and clarifying, reconciling, checking congruency with beliefs, ideals can be highly specific to an individual or applicable to universal truths, such as freedom, goodness, etc. (Fi)

Make note of your answers and pick the one that best describes you; you will find it in the column that says “first pick,” and find your other choice in the next column.
I chose Ni and Fe, making me an INFJ. Please note that due to the set typology systems, you cannot pick two alike options. Obviously, each person is complicated and could not fit into a singular category, but for the sake of the test, these systems should guide your choices. For example, picking Se and Fe as your first two options will not work. You must select one extroverted and one introverted function.
Everyone possesses all of these “functions” (as they are called), but uses them differently. It could be helpful to consider how they work together in your daily life through your actions, thoughts, and motivations.
