For extraverts, the J or P indicates their dominant function; for introverts, the J or P indicates their auxiliary function. Introverts tend to show their dominant function outwardly only in matters "important to their inner worlds". The ENTJ type introverts the auxiliary perceiving function introverted intuition. The tertiary function is sensing and the inferior function is introverted feeling.
Because the INTJ type is introverted, however, the J instead indicates that the auxiliary function is the preferred judging function extraverted thinking. The INTJ type introverts the dominant perceiving function introverted intuition.
The tertiary function is feeling and the inferior function is extraverted sensing. The choices are a mixture of word pairs and short statements. Choices are not literal opposites, but chosen to reflect opposite preferences on the same dichotomy. Participants may skip questions if they feel they are unable to choose. Using psychometric techniques, such as item response theory , the MBTI will then be scored and will attempt to identify the preference, and clarity of preference, in each dichotomy.
After taking the MBTI, participants are usually asked to complete a "Best Fit" exercise see below and then given a readout of their Reported Type, which will usually include a bar graph and number Preference Clarity Index to show how clear they were about each preference when they completed the questionnaire.
During the early development of the MBTI, thousands of items were used. Most were eventually discarded because they did not have high "midpoint discrimination", meaning the results of that one item did not, on average, move an individual score away from the midpoint. Using only items with high midpoint discrimination allows the MBTI to have fewer items on it, but still provide as much statistical information as other instruments with many more items with lower midpoint discrimination.
Additional formats[ edit ] Isabel Myers had noted that people of any given type shared differences, as well as similarities. At the time of her death, she was developing a more in-depth method of measuring how people express and experience their individual type pattern. In , an advanced scoring system was developed for the MBTI.
From this was developed the Type Differentiation Indicator Saunders, which is a scoring system for the longer MBTI, Form J,  which includes the items written by Myers that had survived her previous item analyses.
It yields 20 subscales five under each of the four dichotomous preference scales , plus seven additional subscales for a new "Comfort-Discomfort" factor which purportedly corresponds to the missing factor of neuroticism.
This factor's scales indicate a sense of overall comfort and confidence versus discomfort and anxiety. There are also scales for type-scale consistency and comfort-scale consistency.
Reliability of 23 of the 27 TDI subscales is greater than 0. In , a scoring system was developed for only the 20 subscales for the original four dichotomies. Step III was advertised as addressing type development and the use of perception and judgment by respondents.
It allows the clarity of a preference to be ascertained Bill clearly prefers introversion , but not the strength of preference Jane strongly prefers extraversion or degree of aptitude Harry is good at thinking.
In this sense, it differs from trait-based tools such as 16PF. Type preferences are polar opposites: a precept of MBTI is that people fundamentally prefer one thing over the other, not a bit of both.
Own best judge People are considered the best judge of their own type. A Best Fit Process is usually used to allow respondents to develop their understanding of the four dichotomies, to form their own hypothesis as to their overall Type, and to compare this against the Reported Type.
Using the clarity of each preference, any potential for bias in the report, and often, a comparison of two or more whole Types may then help respondents determine their own Best Fit. No right or wrong No preference or total type is considered better or worse than another. They are all ' Gifts Differing ', as emphasized by the title of Isabel Briggs Myers' book on this subject. It should always be taken voluntarily.
Not for selection The results of the assessment should not be used to "label, evaluate, or limit the respondent in any way" emphasis original. Many professions contain highly competent individuals of different types with complementary preferences. Importance of proper feedback People should always be given detailed feedback from a trained administrator and an opportunity to undertake a Best Fit exercise to check against their Reported Type.
This feedback can be given in person, by telephone or electronically. This is one of the most important aspects to consider for ensuring type-match accuracy. Lacking this component, many users end up mistyping, by at least one character. This is especially true of assessments offered for free online by third party providers.Their primary function is Extraverted Feeling.
