What kind of blogging is right for your personality type? One of the most widely used personality tests is the Jungian model. This test uses four scales of traits—called cognitive learning styles—which the Prelude Character Analysis personality tool has distilled into 16 character types. These types each consist of
- Extraversion (E)/Introversion (I): this scale refers to how people focus their attention and re-energize themselves.
- Sensing (S)/Intuition (N): this scale refers to how people take in information (sequential processing versus “big picture” thinking).
- Thinking (T)/Feeling (F): this scale refers to how people make decisions, objectively (T) or empathetically (F).
- Judging (J)/Perceiving (P): this scale refers to the way people deal with the outside world. Judging types plan and schedule, while perceiving types are more spontaneous.
When someone takes the Prelude Character Analysis Assessment, she or he receives a score for each of these four scales that, when combined, indicate a particular character type. So, someone could be ENFP, INTJ, etc. For example, a person who falls into the INTJ type is apt to be introverted, take a broad view of events, make calculated, logical choices, and prefer to adhere to predetermined plans or schedules.
