Introvert
The introvert looks inward; their
energy comes from within. Introverts
need alone time to replenish this
energy. Introverts are not shy or
withdrawn; they are introspective.
They may take a little longer before
responding because they are
thinking and they do so quietly.
Extravert
The extravert gets energy from the external
environment, which includes other people.
Extraverts replenish their energy by going to
parties, sports events, calling friends, etc.
While extraverts can be introspective, it is not
their primary source of energy. Extraverts
often "think on their feet". They give an
answer and then wait for a response.
Sensing or Sensate
types get information through the
senses. What they can see, touch,
taste, hear, smell exists. Sensors
are into detail. They want to know
the component parts of the whole.
iNtuitive
types also get information through the
senses but do so on an unconscious level.
They are already processing this
information and seeing the potential for it.
Intuitives "look at the big picture." Detail
work can be very tedious for an intuitive.
Thinking
types look at the facts,
they are logical or in
Jungian terminology they
are rational.
Feeling
does not mean, in this instance, emotion.
Rather, the feeling type evaluates based
on "is this pleasing or not." The introvert
feeler evaluates on "do I like this or not,"
the extrovert feeler on "will others like this
or not," "will people benefit from this."
Judging
persons are quicker to make a
decision. They are decisive,
confident that the decision is
correct. Often they are more
organized. J’s can make a decision
before they have all the needed
information and can be precipitant.
Perceiving
persons are slower to decide and often are
less sure of the decisions they make. They
tend to second-guess themselves. P’s want to
have all the information they need before
deciding; since that is usually impossible, P’s
are more likely to procrastinate. They also are
less organized and viewed as "clutterers."
