One of the most telling parts of a personality, in my opinion, is what their Myers-Briggs Personality Type is. It’s flavored like your standard personality test, but it’s widely used by Psychologists, and designed to give much more accurate information about someone’s personality. It helps someone to learn someone’s motivations, weaknesses and how they interact with others, which can be helpful both for Psychological treatment and to get to know someone.
All Types within the scale are measured on combinations of 4 letters, out of a possible 8. For example, either you are an Extrovert or an Introvert, and the first letter of all types is either an E or an I. Then you have either Sensing or iNtuition, Thinking or Feeling, and Judging or Perceiving. This combination of attributes can be very telling about the type of person you are.
I love the MBPT model, and love exploring both other types, as well as my own (INFJ, for those curious), and I decided to try to figure out which literary females actually fit into all of the types. Fun, right? Go here to take the test for yourself and find your own Myers-Briggs type!
