Four of these eight preferences (E or I, S or N, T or F, J or
P) make up a person’s MBTI®
type, also called psychological or personality type. As you act
on your type preferences, you create a unique approach to the
world, to information, to decisions, and to other people.
The theory of psychological type says that people with different
preferences naturally have different interests and views, behave
differently, and are motivated by different things. Awareness
of differences between types can help people understand and value
other people who think and act quite differently.
