The 16 personality types were created by Isabel Myers and her mother Katharine Briggs as a way to categorize an individual according to their preferred way of thinking and behaving.
Each personality type is designated with a four-letter code, like INFP or ESTJ, which is an acronym for the four key dimensions of personality.
Myers and Briggs proposed that the four key dimensions that could be used to categorize people are:
- Introversion vs. Extraversion (I/E)
- Sensing vs. Intuition (S/N)
- Thinking vs. Feeling (T/F)
- Judging vs. Perceiving (J/P)
Each of the four dimensions was described as a dichotomy or an either/or choice between two styles of being. Myers and Briggs described this as a "preference" and proposed that any individual should be able to identify a preferred style on each of the four dimensions. The sum of a person's four preferred styles becomes their personality type.
Again, each of the four letters in a personality type code (16 combination, 16 personality types) stands for a preference in your style of thinking or behaving.
16personalities is a platform that gives you the chance to take the famous Myers-Briggs test for free and later classifies your results according to the country you are from, giving, at last, a statistical study for each country.
Note: The stated Lebanese population is from Wikipedia and includes the estimated 1.5m+ refugees hosted.
According to 16personalities, the 40 682 respondents from Lebanon are likely to be more extraverted, intuitive, thinking, judging and assertive. Turbulent Campaigner (ENFP-T) is the type the most frequent in Lebanon with a rate of 8.68%.
Diplomats are the most frequent roles in Lebanese society, and People Mastery is the strategy most used by Lebanese individuals.
Comparisons between countries and continents are also available for you to check.
On a global scale, a world personality map is put up, according to the 4 dichotomies of Myers-Briggs.
So Lebanon has been ranked the first extraverted country in Asia and the second in the world, you surely did not expect anything less!
