SECTION II: YOUR PERSONALITY TYPE

This section will show you how your four dimension results combine to create your personality type.

 

Discovering Your Personality Type

Your personality type code is based on the combination of your results for the four preference facets. Because we are not sure of your preferences on all of the facets, we are not sure of your four-letter code. We will show you all the personality types that may fit you, and it is up to you to decide which describes you best.

Below you will find profiles for each of the personality types that you should consider. Read over each of them carefully and think about which fits you best. You may see some of yourself in all of them, and none of them may fit you exactly. However, try to think about which comes the closest to describing you. If you can find a profile that is about 90% accurate or better, that is likely to be your personality type.
