• Around 1940 a mother-daughter team (Katharine C. Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers) developed this instrument to help people understand and use Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type preferences.
• Swiss Psychologist, Carl Jung, (1875 – 1961) theorized that you can predict differences in people’s behavior if you know how they prefer to use their mind.
According to Jung, we each have an inborn preference for using our mind in one of two different ways, in four different categories:
primarily, do you direct your energy?
Extraverted: Energised by Others
Introverted: Energised by ideas, emotions and memories
2. How do you prefer to process information?
Sensing: Using five senses
iNtuition: Using gut or intuition
3. How do you prefer to make
Thinking:Logical problem solvers

4. How do you prefer to organise
Perceiving: Taking in information
