According to Jung’s theory of Psychological Types we are all different in fundamental ways. One’s ability to process different information is limited by their particular type. These types are sixteen.
People can be either Extroverts or Introverts, depending on the direction of their activity; Thinking, Feeling, Sensing, Intuitive, according to their own information pathways; Judging or Perceiving, depending on the method in which they process received information.
Extroverts vs. Introverts
Extroverts are directed towards the objective world whereas Introverts are directed towards the subjective world. The most common differences between Extroverts and Introverts are shown below:
Sensing vs. Intuition
Sensing is an ability to deal with information on the basis of its physical qualities and its affection by other information. Intuition is an ability to deal with the information on the basis of its hidden potential and its possible existence. The most common differences between Sensing and Intuitive types are shown below:
| Sensing types
| Intuitive types
Thinking vs. Feeling
Thinking is an ability to deal with information on the basis of its structure and its function. Feeling is an ability to deal with information on the basis of its initial energetic condition and its interactions. The most common differences between Thinking and Feeling type are shown below:
| Thinking types
| Feeling types
Perceiving vs. Judging
Perceiving types are motivated into activity by the changes in a situation. Judging types are motivated into activity by their decisions resulting from the changes in a situation. The most common differences between Perceiving and Judging types are shown below:
| Perceiving types
| Judging types
These four opposite pairs of preferences define eight different ways of dealing with information, which in turn result in sixteen Psychological Types:
ENTp, ISFp, ESFj, INTj, ENFj, ISTj, ESTp, INFp, ESFp, INTp, ENTj, ISFj, ESTj, INFj, ENFp and ISTp, where E – Extrovert, I – Introvert, S – Sensing, N – Intuitive, T – Thinking, F – Feeling, j – Judging, p – Perceiving. So, ENTp for example would be Extrovert, Intuitive, Thinking and Perceiving type.
