The Myers Briggs 16 Personalities (MBTI for short) test was designed during World War II and is intended to classify people’s different preferences and trends.
It is frequently used in a wide variety of dynamics related to psychology and personality, such as marriage counseling, group work, pedagogy, etc…

16 MBTI Personalities – Basic Theory:
The four fundamental attributes:
(E) Extraverted / (I) Introverted
How a person gets motivation to face a challenge.
Someone extraverted is more animated by being surrounded by people, and moving; instead, someone introverted will get more personal motivation when they get lost in their own thoughts and ideas.
(S) Experiences / (N) Analysis
How a person gains the means to meet that challenge.
People who are guided by experiences enjoy learning through the senses, while those guided by analysis enjoy learning more by analyzing information and looking for patterns or why.
(F) Emotion/ (T) Reflection
How a person behaves when presented with a challenge.
Those who are thoughtful take their time to observe the situation objectively. On the other hand, those who are more emotional or sentimental make decisions according to how they feel, and more subjectively.
(J) Judgment / (P) Perception
How a person faces the challenge.
Here, judgment means that you are an orderly person and like to have a specific pattern to solve each type of problem, while perception means that you will improvise and develop alternative solutions if necessary.
