The 16 Types: Introduction
The 16 personalities model is based on Carl Jung’s theory that suggests that we experience the world using four principal psychological functions:
It also suggests that every person has a preference for one of these functions (more details on Carl Jung’s theory here).
Later, Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs — none of them a psychologist — expanded on Jung’s theory. They suggested that there are 16 possible personality types (see above).
Over the years, more and more psychologists and researchers explored the subject and added their observations. Today, we have a plethora of books on the 16 types, and several personality assessments exist.
