The MBTI, short for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, defines 16 types that each of us belong to, according to our preferred cognitive functions.

>The MBTI sorts for type and each type has a specific function order. Additionally, every type uses all four types of functions, Intuition, Sensing, Thinking, and Feeling. Your type however determines the order and attitude of these functions.

You can test it out at, humanmetrics, odiseajung (en español), mypersonality (requires registration), or John's Personality Test; then view your profile here:

Note that each 4 letter type has corresponding functions that give a deeper and richer understanding of each type.

  • The Enneagram categorises human personality into nine types. It's the work of Oscar Ichazo and Claudio Naranjo. While MBTI measures the how we perceive our world and make decisions, Enneagram describes why we do what we do, relating to our innermost motivations, fears and desires. In combination with MBTI enneagram is a potent tool for understanding yourself and others. Enneagram's subreddit is here: /r/enneagram.

  • Socionics was developed primarily by the Lithuanian researcher Aušra Augustinavičiūtė, an economist, sociologist, psychologist. Socionics is quite similar to MBTI but has some slightly difference nuances. It adds focus to intertype relations and analysis of functions. MBTI and Socionics are both derived from Carl Jung, but are slightly different in their presentation. The Socionics subreddit is here: /r/socionics. >Socionics types are the same to their MBTI counterparts. However, there is a discrepancy with introverts. If you are for example an INTJ in MBTI, you will be an INTp in socionics.
