16 Personality Types

There are sixteen personality types and each of us leans toward one of the types. Each personality type has four letters.

Types that like making decisions (J's) and types that keep their options open (P's).
Types that like details (S's) and types that look at the forest instead of the trees (N's).
Types that choose based on emotion (F's) and types choose based on logic (T's)
Types that talk a lot because they think out loud (E's) and types that talk less often because they think before they speak (I's).

When you put one of each of these four pairs of letters together you know your type. Explanations of the 16 types are below. If you want to find out which type is your type, take the test here (it's free!)
