  1. Personality research consistently shows, that different personalities prefer
  2. different careers and college majors. In fact, college counseling centers often
  3. administer one personality questionnaire When trying to guide students, we are
  4. still searching for a career that fits them. That questionnaire is Myers-Briggs
  5. type indicator, or the MBTI for short. The MBTI consists of opposing
  6. personality types. Extraversion and intraversion. Thinking and feeling.
  7. Intuition and sensing. In judging and perceiving. In other words people are
  8. classified, either as an extrovert or an introvert. Or as a thinker or as a
  9. feeler, and so on. For example, intuition and sensing describes how people
  10. prefer to take in information, focused on what is real and actual. So sensing.
  11. Or on patterns and meanings and data. So intuition. Whereas thinking and
  12. feeling describes how people prefer to make decisions based on logical analysis
  13. to thinking, or prefer making decisions guided by the concern for the emotional
  14. impact it has on others. So feeling. Now, personality types are different than
  15. forms of dimensions because they categorize people as either one type or the
  16. other. Rather than on the continuum from high to low, like we see with the big
  17. five. Researchers using the MBTI have found that extraverts prefers social and
  18. enterprising major such as physiology or social work even elementary education.
  19. Whereas thinking types prefer realistic and investigative majors such as,
  20. mechanical engineering or archaeology. Feeling types prefer artistic and social
  21. majors such as art, music or theater.
