Open Jungian Type Scales (v2.1)

This is a free interactive personality test that measures Jungian personality type as conceived by Myers and Briggs.

Introduction

The set of 16 personality types defined by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers is probably the most well known and popular personality system. They published the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator in 1944 based on the theories of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung who proposed the existence of several dichotomies, ways a person could be either one way or the other. The MBTI measures four indepedant dichotomies, which make a possible of 16 different combinations. A person is one of each of these:

  1. Introverted (I) or Extraverted (E)
  2. Sensing (S) or iNtuitive (N)
  3. Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)
  4. Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)

The results for a person on each pair can be combined letter by letter to makes a persons 4 letter code. For example, preferences for Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging becomes ISFJ.

The OJTS is a free and open-source test designed to produce an equivalent result to the MBTI. It was developed by selecting questions that discriminted between people who already indentified as one of the 16 types. Over 2,000 questions were tested. It is currently on version 2.1, see the full documentation. In a comparison between several different online tests, the OJTS had the strongest agreement between self reported type and test result.

Procedure

This test has 48 questions and takes most people 3-5 minutes to complete. The questions come in two sections. In the first section you will be given a series of statements and asked to rate how much you agree that it could apply to you.
