My Briggs Personality Test Result was ENTJ, thirty percent extroverted, twenty-two percent intuitive, twenty-five percent thinking, and three percent judging. I think the personality test results were fairly accurate. Extroverts, as defined by psychologists, commonly think out-loud and are unable to solve things in their heads as well as introverts. Intuitive people are described as preferring theoretical learning as opposed to being hands on. People who try to stay impersonal in their decisions and weigh the pros and cons before deciding are put into the category of thinking. Judging refers to the wish to keep things organized and applying their decision making preferences (thinking or feeling) to their everyday life. I scored very low in the judging or perceiving category, meaning that I barely fell into the judging side. Personally I feel that I fit into the perceiving category better.

The Brigg’s Personality test is based off of the psychological theories of Carl Jung. Carl Jung was a psychodynamic psychologist; he proposed concepts such as archetypes and the collective unconscious. Archetypes according to Jung are innate and used as prototypes to describe and evaluate the world around us. Jung suggested that there is a system of organization of the personal unconscious level of the unconscious mind. The personal unconscious stores thoughts and memories unique to a person, these thoughts can be brought into the conscious mind by means of a trigger. Jung called this organization system the collective unconscious and suggested this system is consistent across members of the same species. Jung believed that events that were stored in our unconscious mind as children effect our personality development as we become adults.
