MBTI, short for the Myers Briggs type indicator, is a personality test that distinguishes the main functions that make up one’s personality: Introversion (I) vs. extroversion (E), intuition (N) vs. sensation (S), thinking (T) vs. feeling (F), and finally judgment (J) vs. perception (P). Combining these elements together results in 16 different personalities.
