What's Your Animal Personality Type?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is an expansion of Carl Jung's ideas about personality types, expressed in one of 16 four-letter acronyms that express your dominant traits. The official test is available online.

The four letters in the Myers Briggs test represent your tendencies when it comes to social behavior, decision-making, and lifestyle. Those dichotomies are:

Worldview: Extroversion (E) or Introversion (I)

i.e. would you rather play with your pals or hang out at home with a book?

Information: Sensing (S) or Intuition (N)

i.e. when taking in something new, do you prefer to take it simply, at face value or interpret / add meaning based on your gut?

Decisions: Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)

i.e. when making up your mind about something, do you primarily rely on logic and structure, or do you gravitate towards emotion and empathy?

Structure: Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)

i.e. would you rather things in your life to be decided and set, or do you like to stay open to whatever options might come along?

The experts say that you are the best equipped to identify your own type, so for a quick analysis you can just choose your side of the above questions and string together those letters for your type. Then, find the species of animal who corresponds below and see if you can relate...
