The Myers-Briggs personality test was developed during World War 2, to help women find the correct job for them, as well as find a replacement for their spouse that left for war, sometimes to never come back. After answering a few questions, women received a short characterization that helped them find their career path.
Some companies still use this method to locate the right people for the job. We got the short version for you – 4 questions with 2 version of questions that will create your very own characterization! Let’s go!
After a long, tiring week that wasn’t very successful – how will you spend the weekend?
E – I’ll call friends to see what’s their plans. I heard about a new restaurant opening, a new movie or a new deal so I’ll check what they’re up to!
I – I’ll leave my phone away from me and watch my favorite show at home/read a book or take a long bath.
What describes you better?
S- I’m interested in current events, I like to pay attention to what’s going on right here, right now.
N- Facts are boring. One of my hobbies is to day dream and come up with potential screenplays, I prefer intuition over data.
A competitor company offers you a job opportunity, but you have your doubts: They’re offering better wages but at your current job you have excellent staff and your manager hinted there’s a promotion coming your way. What do you choose?
T- I’ll investigate every possible information on the competitor company, I’ll consult an HR expert, will create table of pros and cons and consider everything before I make a choice.
F- I’ll listen to my heart and follow it.
Your closest friends are getting married in two weeks. How do you prepare?
J- My surprise for the couple is ready, been ready months ago! I chose my outfit and my greeting is written down – I’m always ready ahead of time.
P- Why get ready for that? I’ll be there to party my hardest for them, I’ll make a spontaneous greeting and say something on-the-go if needed, it always comes out the best without preparing.
