This paper reviews the MBTI, a psychometric instrument designed to sort people into groups of certain personality types. The paper takes a look at the four basic scales with opposite poles used to measure a person's preferences. All four indices are dichotomous, as people tend to develop one preference on the scale at the expense of the other.

Structure and Administration
Career Management and School Counseling
Personal Experience
Overall Evaluation

From the Paper:

"The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator was developed in part to offer a form of Jung's personality type theory that is more coherent and useful in people's lives. It has become one of the most accepted and widely-used development tools for assessing personality characteristics in non-psychiatric populations. Applications have been made across a broad range of human knowledge, including in areas such as psychotherapy and counseling; education, learning methods, cognitive styles, career counseling, and management and leadership in organizations."
