Myers-Briggs Personality Test

For each of the eight headings listed within the personality profiling questionnaire below, record for yourself a score out of ten based on how many questions you answered 'yes' to. For the purposes of the test, please answer 'yes' where an aspect of character applies 'more often than not'. For example, if you answer 'yes' (or 'more often than not') to five out of ten of the items listed within the 'extrovert' category, then your score for 'extrovert' will be five out of ten.

After you have tallied up your scores, simply click on Submit Scores, send your results to me in the form provided and then I will do the rest.
