Truity Psychometrics have created a method that breaks down 16 different four letter personality types that dissect how different people understand and make decisions.
These four dimensions of personality type are listed below. As you read through take note of what letters relate to you. For example if you are an Extravert, Sensor, Thinker and Judger your letter grouping would be ESTJ.
Extravert (E) – like working with other people, on teams and in busy spaces.
Introvert (I) – like working independently or in small groups in calm, quiet spaces.
Sensor (S) – like working with concrete things like people, data and machines.
Intuitive (N) – like working with abstract things like theories, ideas and possibilities.
Thinker (T) – want work that uses their intelligence and lets them excel.
Feeler (F) – want work that reflects their values and helps other people.
Judger (J) – like organisation and a structures orderly workplace.
Perceiver (P) – like flexibility and freedom. Don't mind a little bit of chaos.
So now that you have your letter grouping here are the results.
