MBTI

Myers Briggs Type Indicator

 

Uses the 3 Jungian dimensions - Extraversion-Introversion, Sensing-Intuition (preferring the concrete or the abstract), Thinking-Feeling (preferring logic or values), plus one created by Isabel Briggs - Judging-Perceiving (being organized or flexible and easygoing).  Numerous studies have provided evidence of its validity. The Manual for Type sites hundreds of studies that demonstrate its psychometric soundness. However, while it has been revised many times, the very nature of a self report psychological inventory includes limitations with reliability. However, theoretically any test-taker should have an organic type that is stable over a lifetime, and once they discover that type they should be able to reliably interpret the information related to their type. It is the most widely used inventory in and out of education and has been translated into several languages. More research has been conducted on the MBTI than all of the other inventories combined.
