Part One: Myers-Briggs Assessment This personality assessment starts with Myers-Briggs dichotomies and adds archetypes from Jungian theory as well as some from the Big Five. Which is psychobabbly way of saying you’ll learn whether you’re an introvert or extrovert if you take this test— and at the end, you’ll be labeled with one of 16 personality types with cool names like “Mediator,” “Commander” and “Defender.” Most importantly, the test promises to take less than 12 minutes.
