Personality Types (Jung, Briggs, Myers)

Type theory is based on Sixteen Personality Types and Four Temperaments that provide an in depth insight into people and how differently we see and operate in the world.

The model originated through Carl Gustav Jung and further developed by Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers. Personality Type throughout time has developed into one of the most widely used models in the world due to its insight and practical application when it comes to dealing with the human condition.

Through awareness of type and temperament significant information is revealed about how an individual as a system is organised. This insight provides broad understanding into behaviour and how to facilitate it to best effectiveness, therefore minimising stress.

It is valuable to remember that personality preferences are neither good or bad and preference is not the same as skill.

Majors Personality Type Inventory™ Test is designed to sort people into groups so as to design best fit structures, preferred communication style and planning approaches. It provides individuals with significant personal insight.


( Sample) Jung’s Functions:


Extraversion      Introversion


Sensing            iNtuitive


Thinking               Feeling


Judgement        Perception


These classifications can be very powerful and play out in vastly different ways causing sometimes great achievement and at other times tremendous misunderstanding in both the home and work place environments. This is due to the way in which these functions impact our perception of the world, what’s important in decision making.  

The purpose of learning the Personality Type model is so that you can have a deeper knowledge of self and others. It provides a stable platform from which to build a team whilst acknowledging personal integrity and having an impact.
