The functions are expressed by an individual in either an introverted or extroverted manner.
Therefore 16 possible combinations exist; each of us has one which is our preferred way of making decisions and perceiving the world. The combinations are expressed by using letters to denote the functions and teams. (Intuition is represented by the letter N so as not to be confused with introverted (I).
Example: Someone who is INFP primarily relies on introversion (I), intuition (N), feeling (F) and perception (P)
Some of the INFP characteristics include:
- devote more time and energy to the inner world
- feel deeply
- are loyal and ethical
- see things and actions from an idealistic perspective
- may often withdraw and seem "lost in thought"
- creative, innovative and curious
The Myers-Briggs is a lengthy questionnaire administered and interpreted by professionals. If you want a feel for the assessment, there is a free online questionnaire which is supposed to be similar to (but definitely IS NOT) the Myers-Briggs. I'll give you the link, but pay attention: the test is free, and the personal results are free, but for a "business" it says "free trial" so don't get suckered into buying something you don't want...
