ESFP Description If your personality type is ESFP then you direct your energy primarily towards the outer

world of actions and spoken words. You get things done, and get them done quickly, and you prefer doing things with and for people. You seek to live life to the full and create experiences for others as well. You enjoy solving urgent problems, such as fire-fighting or trouble shooting. The most important mental muscle (or 'dominant function') for an ESFP is the perceptive one of Sensing. This means you like looking at information in terms of facts and details, focusing more on the here and now rather than possibilities for the future. You feel comfortable in areas with which you are already familiar (as opposed to uncharted territory) and you tend to take a realistic approach. The perceptive Sensing function is extraverted. That is, sensing is used primarily to govern the outer world of people and things. Therefore, you probably seek experience and enjoy the world as it is, paying attention (and responding) to current events (as opposed to future possibilities). You tend to be pragmatic, so life tends to be a succession of events where you get things done and have a constructive impact on the people around you. The Sensing function is primarily supported by introverted Feeling judgement. That is, feeling judgement is used primarily to manage the inner world of thoughts and emotions. This will modify the way that the (outer world) Sensing function is directed, by focusing it on relationships and facts concerning people. Therefore, not only do you get a sense of achievement from what you do yourself, but you enjoy doing things with others and derive satisfaction from the team's achievement.

ISTJ Description If your personality type is ISTJ then you direct your energy primarily towards the inner world of ideas and information. You try to clarify concepts and information, seeking to have as clear a knowledge as possible. You often place a lot of trust in experience, but also envisage future goals providing there is a clear pathway to that goal. The most important mental muscle (or 'dominant function') for an ISTJ is the perceptive one of Sensing. This means you like looking at information in terms of facts and details, focusing more on the here and now rather than possibilities for the future. You feel comfortable in areas of proven experience, and take a realistic approach. The perceptive Sensing function is introverted. That is, Sensing is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. You seek to develop a realistic understanding of the world as it is, in the light of what you observes. You are pragmatic in nature, constantly learning to adapt to the world as it is now, and are continually expanding your inner store of facts, information and experience. The Sensing function is primarily supported by extraverted Thinking judgement. That is, thinking judgement is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and spoken words. This will modify the way that the (inner world) Sensing is directed, by focusing it on impersonal facts and logical options. You tend to spot flaws and injustices, and make decisions on the basis of logical analysis that support your understanding of the world.

ISFJ Description If your personality type is ISFJ then you direct your energy primarily towards the inner world of thoughts and emotions. You try to clarify ideas and information, particularly when it relates to people and important relationships. You are a quiet, serious observer of people, and are probably both conscientious and loyal. The most important mental muscle (or 'dominant function') for an ISFJ is the perceptive one of Sensing. This means you take a realistic approach, like looking at information in terms of facts and details, focus more on the here and now rather than possibilities for the future, and feel comfortable in areas of proven experience.

The perceptive Sensing function is introverted. That is, Sensing is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. You seek to develop a realistic understanding of people as they are now and, being pragmatic in nature, adapt to the world as it is rather than trying to effect too much change. You observe in a subjective way, selecting and relating facts that others might not, whilst seeing those facts more in terms of their significance rather than pure 'data'. The Sensing function is primarily supported by extraverted Feeling judgement. That is, Feeling judgement is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and spoken words. This will modify the way that the (inner world) Sensing is directed, by focusing it on ideas and information that relate to people. You feel appreciation for the contributions of others, and probably express it, particularly where they have done or said something that you see as significant.

ISTP Description If your personality type is ISTP then you direct your energy primarily towards the inner world of thoughts (and, maybe, emotions). You analyse situations and come up with explanations of how things work. You prefer dealing with tangible problems and proven experience - you often enjoy solving organisational problems that need to be thought through. The most important mental muscle (or 'dominant function') for an ISTP is the judging one of Thinking. This means you like making decisions on the basis of logic, using objective considerations, and are concerned with truth, principles and justice. You are analytical and critical, tending to see the flaws in situations and you usually (though not always) take an objective approach when dealing with people or problems. The judging Thinking function is introverted. That is, Thinking is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. As an ISTP you will therefore spend time thinking analytically, organising thoughts on a logical basis and developing an understanding of the principles involved in a situation. You may spontaneously tend to feel critical of a person or situation, but not necessarily express that criticism. Also, although you are inwardly decisive, you may not communicate your decisions to others (so they don't always realise when you've made your mind up). You tend to think mostly about impersonal issues, focusing more on practical concepts, truth and how things work rather than dwelling on people's feelings and emotions. The Thinking function is primarily supported by extraverted Sensing perception. That is, sensing perception is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and spoken words. This will modify the way that your Thinking function is directed, by focusing your (inner world) Thinking on understanding practical or mechanical problems, rather than intangible, theoretical constructs. Also, you tend to be swayed by the relevant facts that support your logical analysis (rather than going with pure hunches).

ISFP Description If your personality type is ISFP then you direct your energy primarily towards the inner world of thoughts and emotions. You give importance to particular beliefs or opinions, particularly those that relate to people that you know and current experiences. You tend to take a caring and sensitive approach to others.

This means you make decisions on the basis of personal values, are appreciative and accepting of people - enjoying company and seeking harmony. You assess the impact of your decisions on others, are sympathetic and compassionate, and take a friendly, personal approach. The judging Feeling function is introverted. That is, Feeling is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. The ISFP will therefore develop an inner emotional life that is often unseen to others, but is experienced as intense. You have a strong sense of values, which are often not expressed, which you use to emotionally accept or reject various aspects of life. Although you feel appreciation towards others, you may not express it that often.

The Feeling function is primarily supported by extraverted Sensing perception. That is, sensing perception is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and spoken words. This will modify the way that the (inner world) Feeling is directed, by focusing it on current relationships and people. For example, through one-to-one discussions and fact-based conversation, you seek to enjoy the company of those you know and, being concerned for their well-being and happiness, you seek to help people in practical ways .

The iNtuition function is primarily supported by extraverted Thinking judgement. That is, Thinking judgement is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and words. This will modify the way that the (outer world) iNtuition is directed, by focusing it on ideas and possibilities that relate to structures, systems and concepts. Inwardly you maintain a long term vision but, rather than communicating this vision directly, it may tend to surface in the form of criticism of ideas and situations that do not conform to your vision.

INTP Description If your personality type is INTP then you direct your energy primarily towards the inner world of thoughts and ideas. You structure and organise your ideas, coming up with theories and explanations to explain new areas of scientific research or experience.

The most important mental muscle (or 'dominant function') for an INTP is the judging one of Thinking. This means you like making decisions on the basis of logic, using objective considerations, and are concerned with truth, principles and justice. You are analytical and critical, tending to see the flaws in situations, and take an objective, detached approach. The judging Thinking function is introverted. That is, thinking is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. You will therefore spend time thinking analytically to develop an understanding of the principles involved in a situation. You may tend to spontaneously feel critical of a person or situation, but not necessarily express that criticism. Also, you are inwardly decisive, but you do not necessarily communicate those decisions to others. You think mostly about impersonal issues, focusing more on concepts, truths and systems rather than individuals' feelings.

This means you like looking at information from a global viewpoint, spotting patterns and relationships, that leads to an understanding of the key issues. You tend to focus more on possibilities for the future than the here-and-now, and you enjoy gaining insights into people and where they may be going in the future. The perceptive iNtuition function is introverted. That is, iNtuition is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. You therefore seek to develop a deep understanding of people, relating your observations of people to underlying aspects of the human psyche, that everyone shares. You are strategic in nature, wanting to establish a clear vision towards which you are working, though that vision is somewhat private, as you tend not to involve others in its development. The iNtuition function is primarily supported by extraverted Feeling judgement. That is, feeling judgement is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and spoken words. This will modify the way that the (inner world) iNtuition is directed, by focusing it on ideas and possibilities that relate to people.
