Below are four questions, and descriptions of two different lists of personality "preferences." Both lists have their own strengths and blindspots. BOTH are equally valuable -- NEITHER one is better or worse than the other. Read both sets of descriptions for Question #1 and decide which list -- as a whole - describes you better (even if just a little better). Then click the appropriate button. Try to answer as you really are, not how you may wish you were, or have to be at work.
Continue with the other three questions and hit the "Discover Your Type" button for your results. 1. Where is your energy naturally directed? Extraverts' energy is directed primarily outward, towards people and things outside of themselves. Introverts' energy is primarily directed inward, towards their own thoughts, perceptions, and reactions. Therefore, Extraverts tend to be more naturally active, expressive, social, and interested in many things, whereas Introverts tend to be more reserved, private, cautious, and interested in fewer interactions, but with greater depth and focus.
Extraverts often: Have high energy Talk more than listen Think out loud Act, then think Like to be around people a lot Prefer a public role Can sometimes be easily distracted Prefer to do lots of things at once Are outgoing & enthusiastic Introverts often: Have quiet energy Listen more than talk Think quietly inside their heads Think, then act Feel comfortable being alone Prefer to work "behind-the-scenes" Have good powers of concentration Prefer to focus on one thing at a time Are self-contained and reserved 4.
What kind of environment makes you the most comfortable? Judgers prefer a structured, ordered, and fairly predictable environment, where they can make decisions and have things settled. Perceivers prefer to experience as much of the world as possible, so they like to keep their options open and are most comfortable adapting. So, Judgers tend to be organized and productive while Perceivers tend to be flexible, curious, and nonconforming.
Judgers often: Like to have things settled Take responsibilities seriously Pay attention to time & are usually prompt Prefer to finish projects Work first, play later Seek closure See the need for most rules Like to make & stick with plans Find comfort in schedules Perceivers often: Like to keep their options open Are playful and casual Are less aware of time and may run late Prefer to start projects Play first, work later May have difficulty making some decisions Question the need for many rules Like to keep plans flexible Want the freedom to be spontaneous We all feel like Introverts sometimes and Extraverts at other times, depending on the situation and how much time we've spent alone vs.
with lots of people. The question is which seems to be (and has been over time) your more natural "default" setting. Which of the following two paragraphs describes the real you better, even if only slightly better? Extravert You get energized by activity, people, variety and talking and when you are at social gatherings and probably prefer to talk to lots of people about a wide range of topics. You like to be in the thick of the action and are eager to share your thoughts and ideas, even if they are not yet fully formed.
Some of your best ideas come out during conversations. You usually get energized by being around people and usually look forward to social gatherings. You tend to be outgoing and share information about yourself with others fairly readily. OR Introvert Your best ideas often come after you've let them "percolate" for a while inside your head. While you enjoy some social gatherings, you tend to prefer in depth, one-on-one conversations with a few people rather than having lots of brief conversations with many different people.
After spending several hours socializing, you'd probably like to recharge your batteries by being alone for a little while. You tend to listen before talking and don't like to compete with others for "air time." It may take awhile for others to get to know the real you. Hopefully now you have more confidence about your natural "preference" on this scale. Go back to the assessment and verify your answer.
If you still are uncertain, leave the "Not Very confident" checked. (Note that you will only be allowed to have 2 of the 4 scales as "Not Very Confident.") On a daily basis, we all operate in "Intuitive mode" some of the time and in "Sensor mode" other times, but one of these two modes is as natural and comfortable as writing with our dominant hand and the other takes extra effort like writing with our other hand.
Which of the following two paragraphs describes the real you better, even if only slightly better? Sensor You tend to be most interested in talking about things that are "real", tangible, practical and concrete - what you can see, smell, taste, touch or hear. You probably pay great attention to details and might even be able to relay many recent conversations close to verbatim. He said (this) and I then said (that), etc.
You tend to tell stories with lots of specifics and like others to also give you all the pertinent details. You would probably rather implement plans than spend lots of time discussing the long-term implications of the plans. OR Intuitive You tend to be most interested in ideas and like to consider future possibilities. When you are having a conversation, your brain is constantly making associations and you can easily see connections to other ideas and concepts.
As a result, you often remember your impression of conversations and can relay the gist, but not the precise wording that was used. You probably enjoy brainstorming ideas and seeing long term implications and would prefer to be involved in creating the vision of what could be rather than executing the many steps involved to get there. Hopefully now you have more confidence about your natural "preference" on this scale.
Go back to the assessment and verify your answer. If you still are uncertain, leave the "Not Very confident" checked. (Note that you will only be allowed to have 2 of the 4 scales as "Not Very Confident.") Women are socialized to be more "feeler" and men to be more "thinker", which can make it challenging for some people to determine which one is their "true" natural in born preference. Try to think of yourself in lots of different situations where you are making decisions, not just as a parent or at work, where you have certain roles to play.
Which of the following two paragraphs describes the real you better, even if only slightly better? Thinker You tend to be most comfortable with the part of the decision making process that involves logically analyzing the pros and cons and looking at the situation as objectively as possible, taking the particular feelings of individual people out of the equation. Your objective is to arrive at a decision that "makes sense" and is treats everyone fairly.
You probably find it easiest when you can be very straightforward with people and not have to worry too much about possibly offending them with your directness. OR Feeler You tend to be most comfortable in the part of the decision making process that involves focusing on how the people involved will be impacted. You tend to decide based on how you and others will feel about the situation and have a strong need to be true to your own personal values.
A top priority for you is maintaining harmonious relationships and avoiding tense, conflict-ridden situations. You may be very sensitive to the emotional undertones of any interaction and probably work to avoid others having hard feelings or not feeling valued. Hopefully now you have more confidence about your natural "preference" on this scale. Go back to the assessment and verify your answer. If you still are uncertain, leave the "Not Very confident" checked.
(Note that you will only be allowed to have 2 of the 4 scales as "Not Very Confident.") Most of us are encouraged to be in "Judger mode" at work, so for this dimension, it is best to think of yourself when you are working on a project at home or making plans for your social life. When there are two Perceivers or two Judgers in a relationship, one person often plays the opposite role, so try to be conscious of what is your natural preference is, vs.
what role you may tend to play in any given situation. Which of the following two paragraphs describes the real you better, even if only slightly better? Judger You tend to be driven towards closure whether making a decision, making a plan or completing a project, and may feel uncomfortable when things are too unstructured or left undecided. You probably have two separate modes: "play" mode and "on-task" mode.
When you are "on-task" you can seem rather serious and get stressed since it's important to get your tasks accomplished on time. You may work for long periods of time without taking a break especially when you are close to finishing a project. You probably have a to-do list and derive satisfaction from checking off completed items. OR Perceiver You like to keep your options open and take in lots of information before making a decision.
You enjoy being spontaneous in your social life. You generally prefer an informal and casual approach to most things and probably don't like a lot of unnecessary rules. While you've learned to meet most deadlines, you may do your best work when you get the adrenaline rush at the last minute. You might like to take frequent breaks especially when working on lengthy projects. Hopefully now you have more confidence about your natural "preference" on this scale.
Go back to the assessment and verify your answer. If you still are uncertain, leave the "Not Very confident" checked.
