What is the Jung Type Indicator (JTI) personality test?

The Jung Type Indicator (JTI) assesses personality within Carl Jung’s framework of Psychological Type. This model identifies dimensions of personality preference including: Extraversion vs. Introversion (EI), Thinking vs. Feeling (TF) and Sensing vs. Intuiting (SN) and Judging vs. Perceiving (JP).

Through this exploration, differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication are understood and more amenably resolved.

The Jung Type Indicator helps people to become appreciative and tolerant towards other preferred styles of communication and patterns of behaviour that are the result of personality types different from their own.

This makes the Jung Type Indicator an alternative to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.

What can the Jung Type Indicator personality test be used for?

The Jung Type Indicator personality test assists individuals to understand their preferences for taking in information and making decisions, as well as how a person prefers to focus their attention and how they prefer to live their life. By identifying personality preferences and how they impact on areas including thinking style, interpersonal styles and problem-solving, the Jung Type Indicator is a valuable tool in providing greater self-awareness.

Because the assessment explains basic patterns in human functioning, the Jung Type Indicator is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following:

Individual development

The Jung Type Indicator can help a person develop insight into their own strengths, relationships with others, and areas for development.

Team development

The Jung Type Indicator helps teams better understand individual differences, identify areas of strength and weakness, improve communication and enable better team building.

Management development

The Jung Type Indicator can help individuals understand their management styles and the impact that has on others, thereby identifying areas of opportunity for managers to develop.

The Jung Type Indicator assessment test takes about 15 minutes to complete.
