Do you prefer to deal with: People and things (Extraversion or “E”), or ideas and information (Introversion or “I”); Facts and reality (Sensing or “S”), or possibilities and potential (Intuition or “N”); Logic and truth (Thinking or “T”), or values and relationship (Feeling or “F”); A lifestyle that is well-structured (Judgment or “J”), or one that goes with the flow (Perception or “P”).  In Myers Briggs theory, for each pair you prefer one style over the other. You combine the letters associated with your preferences to get your Myers Briggs personality type.
