Jung Test - Type Evaluator

This is a Jungian types test developed by Lenore Thomson and Aryeh Maidenbaum. Jungian types are similar in theory to the Myers Briggs types.

Note that the Myers-Briggs® type can only be achieved by taking the authentic Myers-Briggs Instrument®.

Just like with the previous Enneagram test, grab a piece of paper and note down your answers to each question. The scoring instructions are at the end of the page.

I hope it will prove as accurate for you as it was for me.

Scoring & Results

Add up one point for each of your answers, in the right category. The one with more points is your preference within each scale.

If the scores are tied, you are perhaps still defining (or redefining) an aspect of your personality. You should give yourself more time (a few months or so) and then try again.
