    Jungian Typology is a cognitive theory and typology system which utilizes a set of eight information processing function of human consciousness proposed and established in the book Psychological Types by Swiss psychiatrist and writer Carl Gustav Jung.[Wp]

    Myers–Briggs Type Indicator, developed based on Jung's theories by Isabel Cook Briggs and Katherine Briggs Myers, is a questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make judgements about it. There's many tests on the web you can take to find out your cognitive/MBTI type. Keep in mind - no cognitive questionnaire is completely reliable, it is recommended you instead learn about MBTI and cognitive functions yourself.

    An example of personality testing in a political sense is the societal structure in the best-selling novel Divergent (2014), a dystopian world where people are separated into factions, or different communities, at the age of 16 based on their personality.

    Things to note

    • No Jungian typology test is reliable.
    • The system itself is not entirely scientifically valid, or at least not accepted by most scientific organizations.
    • MBTI is about perception (as through the senses and unconscious intuitive connection) and judgement (through evaluation and logical reason) - not action, extraversion, friendliness, aggression, procrastination or any other personality trait. For actual personality traits, please refer to the Big Five personality traits theory.
    • Do not preoccupy yourself with letters (i.e, if someone seems to be social then they're an E type; asocial - an I); labels like "INTJ" or "ESTP" only represent the underlying functions that create a single whole type. In short - use cognitive functions.
      • Some who is introverted in their MBTI type may very well be extroverted in social terms. A basic example of that is the twitch.tv streamer RTGame, who is an INFP.[1]
    • Avoid stereotypes. Here's a basic example:
      • People with a greater intuitive functions being "more intelligent" than those with greater sensory ones. This is ultimately untrue, as both intuition and sensation are irrational and perceptive functions - one or the other doesn't make you "more intelligent".[2]

    As mentioned, using questionnaires to type yourself is very unreliable because the design of the questions on these questionnaires accounts for most of your apparent type according to them; ~However!~ if you are still interested, here are some tests which you can take:

    On 16 Personalities

    16P is a personality assessment website which utilizes the ancient four temperaments with a more modern and scientific Big Five personality traits theory, while remarking the labeling format to match that of MBTI.[3] The typology that 16 Personalities provides can be broken down as follows:

    For example, an "INFP-T" result would correspond to a "RLUAI" (Reserved, Limbic, Unorganized, Agreeable, Inquisitive) trait combination in the Big Five.

    Based on the first and last letter, the site also gives you a temperamental strategy;

    • Constant Improvement (Ixxx-T) - Melancholic
    • Confident Individualism (Ixxx-A) - Phlegmatic
    • Social Engagement (Exxx-T) - Sanguine
    • People Mastery (Exxx-A) - Choleric

    The typology is flawed as follows:

    • High use of Intuition is distinct from high scores on most facets of Openness
    • High use of Feeling is distinct from high Agreeableness
    • Levels of Neuroticism are more variable than those of the other four throughout individuals’ lives

      Jung proposed the existence of two dichotomous pairs of cognitive functions: The "rational" (judging) functions: thinking and feeling. The "irrational" (perceiving) functions: sensation and intuition.
