Myer Briggs: What is your personality type?Created by:
The previous topic I posted was on the article "The Kind of Doctor You Are Meant To Be". The article used the Myer Brigg's personality test to let you know what type of personality goes with which specialty. I took this test a few years back as a friend just encouraged me to take it as she found the results highly interesting. I have to agree that they are interesting because they help you to understand yourself and others as well. It is not necessary for everyone you know to take the test to understand them, but reading through the personality types and seeing how their approach on life and the way they handle things differ highly you can be more sensitive towards them.
Myer Briggs is mainly used nowadays in career development for either what way to go or how to improve yourself.
Here is an unofficial list of the possible specialties per personality type taken from a forum. I searched other websites and they came up with different possibilities as well.
