The Myers-Briggs profile

The MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) profile is divided in 16 different types of personality.

You find with this test your preference in four dichotomous situations. You get a letter for each situation. And that gives you your type profile.

1) Energy orientation : Extraversion or Introversion

2) Information research : Sensing or Intuition

3) Decision making : Thinking or Feeling

4) Action mode : Judging or Perception

 

I did online two free tests. The first one is quickly done and very well documented. The second one is longer to do but I recommend it for people who do not have a strict preference for one or the other part of a dichotomy. You will get a more accurate answer about your profile type.

Please find below a brief description of each of the 16 profiles.

Personality and Behavior

I recently watched a video in which Dr. Rick Brinkman speaks about the difference between personality and behavior.

According to him:
- Behavior is fluid and constantly changing.
- Personality is a generalization based on the behaviors you have observed.

That means that nobody can truly know who you are (your personality). People can only build a global perception of who you are based on your behaviors in specific situations.

Dungeons & Dragons Alignments

I discovered the D&D alignment personality test.

There are 9 alignments ordered along 2 axis:
- the X axis: your obedience to law 
- the Y axis: your morality

Lawful good                                          Neutral good                                  Chaotic good

Lawful neutral                                       Neutral                                            Chaotic neutral

Lawful evil                                             Neutral evil                                     Chaotic evil

For a description of each alignment please check here.

Personally, I am "lawful good": A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. She combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. She tells the truth, keeps her word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion.

What about you? What is your alignment status?
