Remember all those personality tests we used to take in YM, Cosmo, and Seventeen magazine? Well, today, we’re talking about one of the most popular personality tests out on the scene, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. 

Myers-Briggs is a bit different than an Enneagram test. For those who are unfamiliar, the enneagram is based on how you deal with trauma, whereas the Myers-Briggs test assesses how you judge and perceive the world. 

Based on the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung’s theories, the Myers-Briggs personality test is a robust tool that helps you better understand yourself and how to navigate your relationships, parenting, and even your mental health.

In this episode, I talk with Myers Briggs Expert and co-host of Family Personalities podcast, Sandra Etherington, about what the Myers-Briggs personality test is all about, the different dichotomies, and how knowing your Myers-Briggs personality type can help you thrive at home, work, and in life.

It’s not a must, but I do recommend taking the Myers-Briggs personality test at http://www.truity.com for FREE before listening to this episode. Even better, if you have the resources, talk with an expert like Sandra to make sense of yourself and others around you.
