        Frequently asked questions

        What is Jung's theory of psychological types?

        Jung's theory of psychological types attempts to categorize people in terms of their primary modes of psychological functioning. In his theory, Carl Jung referred to cognitive functions as psychological functions which are particular mental processes within a person's psyche that are present regardless of circumstances. The theory is based on the assumption that there are different attitudes and functions of consciousness. He noted four main psychological functions: thinking, feeling, sensation, and intuition. He introduced them as having either an internally focused (introverted) or externally focused (extraverted) tendency which he called "attitudes".

        What are the four personality types of Jung?

        To understand the Jung typology test we first need to understand his four personality types. In his theory Carl Jung proposes four main functions of consciousness: two perceiving or non-rational functions (Sensation and Intuition), and two judging or rational functions (Thinking and Feeling). These functions are modified by two main attitude types: extraversion and introversion.
        Sensation refers to our immediate experience of the objective world without any kind of evaluation of the experience.
        Intuition refers to a deeper perception of inherent possibilities and inner meanings.
        Thinking is a mode of evaluation that is concerned with the truth or falsity of experience.
        Feeling is an affective, sentimental function, that involves judging the value of things based on our likes and dislikes.

        What’s MBTI?

        MBTI stands for Myers–Briggs Type Indicator. It is a personality inventory used to make the theory of psychological types, as described by Carl Jung, understandable and useful in people's lives. MBTI is based off of Jung’s work. It is a self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The test attempts to assign four categories: introversion or extraversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, judging or perceiving.

        What is the 16-personality quiz?

        The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF) is a self-report personality test developed by Raymond B. Cattell, Maurice Tatsuoka and Herbert Eber. The 16PF can provide information such as an individual’s capacity for insight, self-esteem, cognitive style, internalization of standards, openness to change, capacity for empathy, level of interpersonal trust, quality of attachments, interpersonal needs, attitude toward authority, reaction toward dynamics of power, frustration tolerance, and coping style. Jung’s test is in several ways similar to Cattel’s 16 Personalities.

        How to test your cognitive function?

        The easiest way is to take a cognitive functions personality test. A lot of the self-report questionnaires are based on Jung's theory of psychological types. These include MBTI, 16PF and OEJTS assessments. The OEJTS (Open Extended Jungian Type Scale) is an open source alternative to the popular 16 personalities or the Myers–Briggs (MBTI) assessment and is also based on Jung typology.
