What Celebrity Matches Your Personality Type, According to Psychology


The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or the MBTI, is an introspective questionnaire used to categorize personality types based on how people make decisions and thus perceive the world. It is one of the most frequently used personality inventories, and is regarded by physiologists as one of the most consistently successful of its sort. Based on the typological theories of Carl Jung, the MBTI helps to determine how an individual experiences the four psychological functions –sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking– in their perception of the world.
