The What’s My Jungian 16-Type Personality? test is not a measure of our skills or abilities in any area. Rather it is a way to help us become aware of our particular style and to better understand and appreciate the helpful ways that people differ from one another.

My score in the mentioned test was ENTP, which stands for Extraversion, Intuition, Thinking and Perceiving. People with this type usually are enthusiastic innovators, seeing new possibilities, different theories, and new ways of doing things. They are quick to see patterns. They have a lot of imagination and initiative for starting projects. Being competent is very important to them. Their energy comes from what is new and different, and they enjoy spontaneity and taking action. They can become so interested in their current projects that they drop other less exciting things. They dislike routine and find it hard to apply themselves to the sometimes necessary details involved in finishing projects. They become bored easily.

They are most interested in logically analyzing ideas and theories. They can speak to all sides of an issue, and they may change sides if no one is championing the viewpoint of that side. The challenge of the discussion is more important to them than reaching agreement (Hirsh, 1989).
Regarding to Fitzgerald and Kirby (1997) people with ENTP
