Due to popular demand (H/T to Just1X) I’m putting up some information about personality types and the Myers-Briggs personality inventory. If you’re not familiar with it, from Wikipedia:
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung and first published in his 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923).
Regular readers here love discussing this in the comment threads, and it really has shed light on some interesting relationship dynamics. In particular, extraversion and introversion are highly correlated to relationship style, including infidelity!
If you’re interested in learning more:
First, take the test at Human Metrics.
Type Logic is another good site.
You can test for soulmate compatibility too.
