Myers-Briggs Personality Test FAQ
What is the Myers-Briggs personality test?
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality test that evaluates your strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and how you interact with the world. Rather than being a "test" with right or wrong answers, the MBTI is a personality inventory that uses dichotomies (forced choices between two extremes) to place people into one of sixteen different personality types.

How was the Myers-Briggs personality test invented?
