Personality types

1


Personality is

the particular combination of emotional, attitudinal, and behavioral response patterns of an individual. Different personality theorists present their own definitions of the word based on their theoretical positions. Psychologists such as Freud, and Erickson have attempted to come up with personality theories.

In psychology, the Big Five

personality traits are five broad

domains or dimensions of personality that are used to describe human personality. The theory based on the Big Five factors is called the Five Factor Model. The Big Five factors are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.

Personality disorder refers to a

class of personality types and enduring behaviors associated with significant distress or disability, which appear to deviate from social expectations particularly in relating to other humans.


Personality type refers to the

psychological classification of different types of individuals. Personality types are sometimes distinguished from personality traits, with the latter embodying a smaller grouping of behavioral tendencies. Types are sometimes said to involve qualitative differences between people, whereas traits might be construed as quantitative differences.According to type theories, for example, introverts and extraverts are two fundamentally different categories of people. According to trait theories, introversion and extraversion are part of a continuous dimension, with many people in the middle.

ISTJs are independent, logical, practical, and responsible.

They are typically focused on the present, with an appreciation for the facts of a situation and excellent attention to detail. ISTJs respect tradition and order, and are extremely loyal to those who matter to them. They are dedicated to following the rules and fulfilling their obligations, and expect others to do the same. ISTJs absorb facts and data with a thoroughness and ease, often retaining an impressive amount of information. They trust experience, drawing upon knowledge gained from past experiences to understand the world and how it works. ISTJs are realistic and practical, often reluctant to experiment with new ideas or methods until they’ve determined that there is solid evidence that the change will be beneficial. ISTJs favor objective and logical analysis, and typically seek to organize their lives and others accordingly. After a careful internal consideration of the facts, ISTJs often act decisively and methodically to complete the task at hand. They will work hard to complete a project, as long as they believe its purpose is logical and useful. ISTJs enjoy working independently, often preferring to socialize only when necessary. Due to their affinity for logic and objectivity, and their need to stick to a schedule to accomplish a task, ISTJs may be seen as blunt or cold. Or some may feel as though the ISTJ ignores their feelings or needs, as the ISTJ has difficulty sensing the emotions of others if they do not fit into their logical and practical framework. Once the ISTJ realizes what is important to someone they care about, however, they will recognize the reality of the situation and integrate the information into their logical analysis.


ISFJs are calm, dutiful, practical, and considerate. ISFJs

are focused on the here and now and are often looking for practical and useful solutions to problems facing the people and organizations that they care about. ISFJs take their commitments seriously, and tend to favor procedure when accomplishing a task. They are sensitive to the needs of others and enjoy collaboration, when all are working towards the same goal. ISFJs use all of their senses to absorb details about their environment and the people around them. They process their observations internally, often accumulating a large amount of knowledge and experiences. ISFJs then call upon this stored knowledge to retrieve extremely detailed memories, which may amaze others. ISFJs are oriented toward present realities and facts, and respect tradition and experience. Often pragmatic, they may be reluctant to try new methods or ideas if they do not see an immediate usefulness. Once an ISFJ has carefully and thoroughly considered the facts of a situation and reached a conclusion, they often act decisively. Due to their careful decision-making process and their faith in practical and sensible analysis, ISFJs tend to form firm opinions, which they prefer not to change. ISFJs value structure and order, and tend to approach a role or project with discipline and dedication. They enjoy using their well-developed organizational skills to look after the needs of others, and tend to stay behind the scenes, providing gentle and considerate support.

INFJs are insightful, creative, compassionate, and

dedicated. INFJs have a unique ability to understand the emotions of those around them, and enjoy using this emotional sensitivity to create warm and supportive environments for growth. INFJs excel at recognizing the possibilities for personal development in others, and often have a plan for how others can achieve their goals. Deeply intuitive, INFJs process ideas and information internally, always working to improve their understanding of people and relationships. They often have a talent for recognizing patterns and hidden meanings in the people and world around them, and often have learned to trust their insights. INFJs typically only share their innermost thoughts with those they trust, and may appear reserved or mysterious to others. INFJs have strong personal values and typically have a vision for how to bring out the best in their selves, those they care about, and often humanity itself. They are excited about the future and possibilities, and enjoy using their organizational skills and imagination to create plans to achieve their grand visions. Once they have fully considered a situation, INFJs often act decisively, and are committed to accomplishing a task or fulfilling their responsibilities. Typically, INFJs lead with a quiet persuasion, inspiring others to follow them by their example and with their faith in their vision. At times, however, an INFJ can become pushy or controlling in their drive to guide others along the path they have chosen. Loyal friends, INFJs value authentic relationships, often sensing insincerity and duplicity. INFJs take time to appreciate others, offering positive feedback and making sure everyone’s needs have been considered. Although INFJs are often more focused on the needs of others, and may neglect their own, they do not hesitate to speak up if they feel their personal values are being disregarded.


INTJs have a thirst for knowledge and a passion for

improvement. Constantly working to better themselves, they are often perfectionists. INTJs are also focused on finding ways to improve processes, always open to possibilities and new ideas. They enjoy taking the time to truly understand ideas or systems, and using their analytical skills to solve complex problems. INTJs often have a broad vision for what is best for an organization, and are driven to implement these ideas. Although quite creative and open to new ideas, INTJs often process information internally, sharing their inner thoughts only with those they trust. Without being able to observe the INTJs consideration of different ideas and theories, some may view their clearly stated opinions and decisive action as stubbornness. The typical INTJ, however, is always willing to consider other points of view and information and change their mind, when warranted. INTJs prefer structure and order, and expect others to follow the rules and procedures. Once committed, INTJs go to great lengths to fulfill their responsibilities and typically can be trusted to get the job done. Independent and forwardthinking, INTJs tend to be visionaries and are often found in leadership positions where they can apply their welldeveloped organizational skills to systems and people. Typically confident in their abilities and their insights, INTJs often have a unique ability to clearly and concisely express their vision and goals.
