This paper explains that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, developed by Katherine C. Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers, and based on Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung's studies on psychological type, is a self-report inventory and objective assessment, which is not diagnostic in a psycho-pathological sense. The author describes Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator's sixteen possible personality types, which are based on the four primary ways people differ from one another in their perceptions of the world and the way they accept information. The paper presents many cases in which researchers, including those in the fields of psychology and social psychology, have used the Myers-Briggs assessment tool as a means of studying a specific hypothesis.
