Ever wondered why just three hours of socialising leaves you all exhausted while your friend can go on partying till the dawn breaks?

In a room full of people, you'd rather go sit in a corner to avoid interactions, but your friend goes around talking with everyone, friends, acquaintances, and strangers. Weekend plans arrive, and you start hunting for excuses because you'd rather coop yourself up inside your comfy blanket and read your favourite book or binge-watch a new drama. Now, you might wonder what's wrong with you! Don't worry, I've got you all covered. As you know, each human being is different, and so is the way we perceive the world. "Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills."


The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is an introspective, self-evaluating tool that helps people find their personality types. It assists people in exploring and understanding their psychological preferences, strengths, and weaknesses in the way they view the world and make decisions. This test consists of a questionnaire that concludes a person's inclination into four categories: introversion or extraversion, intuition or sensing, thinking or feeling, perceiving or judging. This system was developed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers in 1944 based on Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung's theories and concepts. According to the MBTI, each person supposedly has one dominant preference from the above-mentioned categories, leading to sixteen different and unique personality types. One combination of these four polarities is what determines a person's personality and its various characteristics. For instance, ISTJ denotes introversion, sensing, thinking, and judgment. An archetype is given to each personality type for comprehending its qualities appropriately. For example, and INFPs are called "the thinkers" because they tend to be quiet, analytical, hard workers, and problem solvers.
