What is your MBTI?

I was intrigued by the Korean variety how called MTBI inside which depicts the differences of each personality type. 

Let's talk about the meaning and difference of each letter of the 16-type personality, which will help you make a preliminary judgment of yourself.

The difference between Extrovert (E) and Introvert (I)

Extroverted people prefer to focus their attention and energy mainly on people and things in the external world, while introverted people prefer to focus their attention and energy on various activities in their inner world.

The differences between extroversion and introversion are as follows:

1. Extroverts feel excited, comfortable, and energetic in crowds; introverts feel comfortable when alone and don't like crowds.

2. Extroverts are willing and often want to be the center of attention, while introverts tend to avoid being the center of attention.

3. Extroverts prefer to communicate directly by talking, while introverts prefer to use written methods, such as texting, whatsapping. etc

4. Extroverts like to think and talk at the same time, while introverts tend to think and then talk. The result is: On the surface, extroverts talk more, are more likely to interrupt others to say what they want to say, and respond faster when answering other people's questions. On the contrary, introverts talk less, introvert is better at listening and introvert needs to think carefully when answering other people's questions before he/she speaks. Thus it seems that introvert is slow in the eyes of others. However, introverts will tend to think more deeply.

5. Extroverts are more likely to break the ice in conversations, because they instinctively reject "awkward" situations, while introverts are relatively content with silence, and even know how to "enjoy" silence.

6. Relatively speaking, extroverts prefer a fast-paced life and like all kinds of surprises in life; introverts prefer a slow-paced life and don’t like their rhythm being disrupted by external events.

7. Extroverts are more likely to talk to strangers than introverts, and they are less shy about telling people about themselves (even some “personal privacy” in the eyes of introverts). Introverts are more likely to be reserved and don't like being known a lot about themselves.

8. Extroverts take the initiative most of the time at work and in life, while introverts only take the initiative of things that matter to them.

9. Extroverts have "friends all over the world," while introverts have relatively fewer friends, and usually only have a few close friends.

The difference between Sensing (S) and iNtuitive (N)

S-type people believe more in the information directly obtained through the five senses (five senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch); N-type people believe more in the unconsciousness of things beyond the five senses Information obtained by association (the so-called "sixth sense").

The difference between S-type People and N-type People is as follows:

1. S-type people are relatively able to observe and remember details of actual situations; N-type people tend to ignore specific details unless they are directly related to some abstract pattern. Some N-type people who are overly intuitive may even be "blind" to something that is right in front of them. On the other hand, S-type people may be ignorant of grasping the whole; N-type people prefer generalization and abstraction, so they may be better at grasping the whole situation, and ignoring details is the price they pay. There is a saying that S-type people may "see the tree but not the forest", and N-type people may "see the forest but not the tree".

2. The S-type people tend to discover more practical details, and able to distinguish differences in details. For example, an S-type woman may be more likely to distinguish two different lipstick colours than a N-type woman. Likewise, S-type people are relatively more gifted when it comes to distinguishing the brightness of lights, the smell of perfume, or the taste of desserts, etc. In contrast, N-type people usually have a richer imagination, which not only adds some joy as well as distress to their lives that are difficult to share with S-type people. Horror movies, for example, may be "more terrifying" for N-type people than for S-type people, precisely because N-type people imagine far more scenarios than the film presents.

3. S-type people tend to describe facts as precisely as possible, while N-type people always feel that descriptions of facts are “about the same”. Compared with S-type people who value facts because of their sensitivity to facts, N-type people always have a tendency to devalue facts. In their subconscious mind, facts are experienced as an appearance, a cover, and a fog. When the S-type person asks the N-type person not to change the facts (in fact, N-type forget and think the difference is not important), the N-type person will feel that the S-type person is missing the point and nitpicking.

4. S-type people are more inclined to "follow the facts", in their eyes, a fact is basically this fact, and rarely means anything else; in contrast, N-type people prefer to speculate the meaning or meaning behind a fact, and the relationship of this fact to an assumption or theory. Take for example a fallen leaf, a S-type person may play or study the leaf itself, such as size, color, texture, smell, etc.; on the contrary, if a N-type person may realizes: "Autumn is here!", but after a few minutes you ask N-type person to describe the leaf he just saw, he will probably get many details wrong. From the point of view of receiving information, both have their pros and cons: people who see leaves miss autumn, and people who see autumn actually miss the leaves. There is no good or bad between the two, just a difference of preference.

5. S-type people pay more attention to the reality of things, that is, the current facts and the facts that will be realized soon; N-type people are more concerned about the possibility of things: Future). When imagining the possibilities of things, N-type people are more likely to ignore real obstacles and let their imagination run wild. This also means that N-type people may consider the operability and cost later, which is often regarded as "unrealistic" by S-type people.

6. S-type people prefer to deal with practical things that they can see and touch, while N-type people are more interested in things that are invisible and intangible. For example, people with strong hands-on ability and dexterity are mostly S-type people; N-type thinks and talks about topics that have nothing to do with reality (such as the possibility of time travel, hypothetical experiments in physics, and the relationship between characters in fairy tales). , my life ten years later or after winning the lottery...).

7. When S-type people gather information, they will ask: "What is the truth?" If they have obtained facts that are reliable and accurate in their eyes, they will feel satisfied, and then rely on the facts obtained to make judgments; on the contrary, when N-type people gather information, they will ask: "What does this mean?" If N-type people get the facts, they will not feel satisfied, even instinctively" Put the facts aside" and instead search for the "meanings" or "patterns" behind the facts.

8. S-type people are more willing to experience, while N-type people are more confident in their own "inspiration" and intuitive "understanding" of things. S-type people are usually more willing to choose time-tested or common sense and easy-to-implement methods when doing something; N-type people are more likely to be influenced by innovative, revolutionary, or even unprecedented approach.

9. S-type people prefer to do things they have done before. If faced with something they have never done before, S-type people may lose their confidence; on the contrary, N-type people relatively prefer to do things they haven't done and get excited that their vision for the future might come true, but when faced with something they've done many times, N-type people tend to be less interested or even can't lift their spirits.

The difference between Thinking (T) and Feeling (F)

T-type people tend to make what they think are "correct" decisions by making an objective, intellectual analysis of an event; F-type people tend to make decisions that they think are "right" by considering emotional feelings to make what they consider “good” decisions.

The difference between a T-type person and F-type person.

1. T-type people will try to maintain an objective and fair position when making a decision, with as few personal factors as possible, and often put on an "objective" appearance; emotional people are making a decision. When it is time to try to maintain a subjective and sympathetic position, try to consider everyone's feelings as much as possible.

2. A simple and somewhat absolute statement is: T-type people are "objective and do not mix with personal feeling", and F-type people are otherwise." T-type people are more likely to ignore the individual factors involved in a situation, and mainly consider the logic of the matter itself, and they will also flaunt their "equal treatment" attitude to all people when considering problems; on the contrary, emotional people are more inclined to treat each person as a unique individual, so they will pay more attention to each person's different situation, and they are more likely to advertise themselves as "caring about others" and "being good to others". Of course, if an F-type person hates someone, it is easier to show it in words and actions, so T-type people often criticize F-type people for their "emotional" behavior.

3. When there is a dispute between two people, T-type people will give priority to "who is more reasonable?" "Who is right?" On the contrary, F-type people will give priority to thinking "Who's hurting whom?" "Who's being aggressive?" This makes it harder for someone who doesn't make sense but is "excusable" to get the support of a T-type person, and a person who makes sense but is "not excusable" people have a harder time getting support from F-type people.

4. T-type people pay more attention to "reason", they like to reason in everything, and think that right and wrong and fairness are more important; in contrast, F-type people pay more attention to "emotions", they are willing to do everything. Considering emotional relationships first, F-type might think that the harmony of interpersonal relationships is more important. Because of this, T-type types are more likely to point out the other person's mistakes in conversations. F-type people, however, can easily interpret this ideological confrontation as a kind of emotional rejection. Denying a person's point of view is understood as denying the person himself, or being understood as disliking this person.

5. If there is a conflict of interest, T-type people are more inclined to put the conflict on the table and find a fairer solution acceptable to both parties through negotiation; F-type people prefer that the conflict not be made public, so as not to hurt the peace, and everyone to understand each other and takes a step back from each other.

6. Everyone actually needs to experience emotions when making decisions. The difference between T-type and F-type is only the emphasis on these two methods. For T-type people, the process of experiencing emotions is relatively unconscious. They usually take their emotional feelings and values ​​as the prerequisites for granted, so there is no need to express and discuss them. In contrast, they are more willing to put their energy into the logical thinking process; for F-type people, the operation of the thinking process is relatively conscious or even automatic, and they tend to think that as long as they are emotionally reasonable and the rest of the things will fall into place.

7. Obviously, no matter which way of thinking and feeling is emphasized, there may be hidden dangers. Therefore, T-type people are more likely to "do bad things right", such as scientists who conduct human cloning research without regard to the impact on social ethics; F-type people are more likely to "do wrong things with good intentions", such as rushing to the disaster area to be a volunteer will only add chaos to the relief work... Of course, this is not absolute, and well-developed T-type and F-type people can completely avoid the above situation.

8. Extreme T-type people may have a tendency to "analyze everything", which is often unbearable for many F-type people, especially some T-type people actually analyze "emotions”. For F-type people, it's like measuring a flower with a tape measure - not whether it can be measured, but whether it is necessary to measure it. On the other hand, extreme F-type people may have a tendency to "feel everything", which is often disliked by many T-type people.  If F-type feel bad or don't like it, F-type will reject it. In the eyes of T-type people, this is very irrational.

9. Striking a balance between the two are often the most important because both involve criteria for making decisions, and people tend to have more difficulty compromising on that. Thus, a deep-seated prejudice is formed between the two: T-type people may think that F-type people are too emotional, sentimental; F-type people may think that T-type people are too ruthless, unsympathetic.

The difference between Judging (J) and Perceiving (P)

J-type people tend to make decisions as soon as possible, and it is more difficult to endure the state of unresolved and inconclusive things; P-type people tend to delay making decisions as much as possible, hoping to understand or feel more about things. In all respects, enjoy the "anything is possible" openness that precedes conclusions.

The difference between a J-type person and a P-type person:

1. J-type like to keep everything in good order, including keeping things sorted into categories, and may have a habit of organizing things ; P-type are more comfortable with all kinds of natural chaos, will place all kinds of things at will, which is often accused by J-type.

2. J-type like to plan everything, and hope to do things according to the plan as much as possible, and do not like the previously made plans to be randomly disrupted; P-type people are more casual and do not like to make plans for everything, because This makes them feel constrained and unfree, and they are more inclined to react to things as they happen or are about to happen.

3. J-type like to schedule and organize their lives, so most of their time may be represented as a schedule consisting of a series of "tasks" that J-type can draw from when a task is completed. get a sense of satisfaction; P-type prefer that their lives are not dictated by man, they like life full of unknown possibilities, when there are "new things" that are not expected and planned. When it happens, P-type people get a sense of satisfaction from it.

4. J-type usually start sooner if they know they have a task to do - "do it early" because they are afraid of running out of time later; P-type on the other hand, if there is a task to be done, and unless it's something they're really interested in or important to, they'll tend to delay starting as long as possible, even until a deadline is approaching. This is because any pre-arranged schedule (even in their own favor) will make the P-type feel free, so they will extend as much time as possible before their freedom has been taken away. However, this tendency can easily make the P-type unable to complete the task at the end, or despite the completion, the final period is very painful (such as rushing through the night for several days in a row).

5. J-type people are instinctive result-oriented people. Once they start something, they want to finish it as soon as possible, and often unconsciously "speed up"; P-type people are more focused on the process of one thing, less focused on getting results as soon as possible, often not even realizing "the deadline is near". In many cases, this difference between J-type and P-type directly corresponds to the conflict between efficiency and quality - J-type usually prioritizes efficiency, while P-type is more difficult to compromise on quality standards. Obviously, whether it is work or life, you need to find a balance between the two.

6. In the eyes of the J-type, everything is "right or wrong"; while the P-type is more likely to hold a relativistic view of right and wrong, because they are always receiving information, so they will feel that everything has the possibility of change.

7. J-type likes to use the word "should" to think and speak. In their minds, there is a corresponding "should" version of many things: if things are going in line with their "should", J-type will express approval; if the opposite is true, J-type may show displeasure or even anger. In contrast, P-types are more receptive to things as they are, they may have expectations about something, but if things don't turn out as expected, they are happy to have discovered something new and adjust themselves quickly the opinion of. This difference leads to J-type who always likes to evaluate people or things around them, while P-types prefer descriptions and introductions. Not only has that, P-types also dislike other people's opinions of themselves.

8. When J-type announce the beginning of something, it means they are about to start doing it (like having a baby); when J-type announce an end, it means they don’t waste another minute on this thing (like a breakup). On the contrary, when the P-type declares the beginning or the end, exactly when it begins and when it ends still depends on the subsequent development, and may change at any time. Taking the previous example, a P-type person will say "I want a baby", but the exact time of pregnancy needs to "depending on the situation".

9. J-type will think that their past actions have a stipulation on their present and future, or that the present and future are "obliged" to be consistent with the past; on the contrary, in the eyes of P-type , the past is the past, the present is the present, and the future is the future. The important thing is to be loyal to the self at every moment. As for how much the current self is consistent with the previous self, it is basically beyond the attention of the P-type. This distinction, on the one hand, makes it easier for J-type people to trap themselves, and on the other hand, it also makes it easier for P-type people to break their past commitments (especially verbal commitments on a whim), carry a bad reputation for reneging on promises and not keeping promises.
