Briggs-Myers Personality Test and Careers

Name: Lexi Lawrence

Directions: Go to the following site: https://www.16personalities.com

Click the Take the Test button and answer the questions. Each question will have you choose between options
on a scale in terms of your social interactions, decision-making, thought-processes, etc.

1. Once you have answered all the questions, you will get a personality type. It will be a four-letter
combination. Write your type.
2. For each of the categories, write your percentages:


36% Extroverted, 64% Introverted


27% Intuitive, 73% Observant


18% Thinking, 82% Feeling


88% Judging, 12% Prospecting


58% Assertive, 42% Turbulent

Now, research what these results mean. Choose the combination with the highest percent value. This is your
closest personality type. Do a google search to find out more information about your type.

3. Your personality type is The Defender

4. Describe how your personality type interacts with others.

My personality type is generous towards other. Defenders also sometimes harm themselves by
caring about other people more than they care about themselves. We also tend to avoid conflict.
5. Describe how your personality type makes decisions.
My personality choice makes decisions based on not only what they want but they also spend
time on thinking about how their decision would affect others and how people would feel about
said decision.
6. Describe strengths of your personality type.
Reliable and Patient
Imaginative and Observant
Loyal and Hard-working
Good Practical Skills
Humble and shy
Take Things Too personally
Repress their Feelings
Overload Themselves
Reluctant to Change
Too altruistic
7. Describe weaknesses of your personality type.
Humble and shy: They are so concerned with others feelings that they refuse to make
their thoughts known, or to take any duly earned credit for their contributions. Defenders
standards for themselves are also so high that, knowing they could have done some minor
aspect of a task better, they often downplay their successes entirely.
Take Things Too personally: Any negativity from conflict or criticism can carry over from
their professional to their personal lives, and back again.
Repress their Feelings: Much in the way that Defenders protect others feelings, they must
protect their own, and this lack of healthy emotional expression can lead to a lot of stress
and frustration.
Overload Themselves: Their strong senses of duty and perfectionism combine with this
aversion to emotional conflict to create a situation where it is far too easy for Defenders
to overload themselves
Reluctant to Change: A situation sometimes needs to reach a breaking point before
Defenders are persuaded by circumstance, or the strong personality of a loved one, to
alter course.
Too altruistic: Defenders are willing to let things slide, to believe that things will get
better soon, to not burden others by accepting their offers of help, while their troubles
mount unassisted.
8. List five famous or influential people who share your personality type.
a. Vin Diesel
b. Beyonc
c. Queen Elizabeth II
d. Kate Middleton
e. Selena Gomez
9. Explain what results of your personality test suit you very well.
I think everything on this test describes me perfectly except for a few things.
10. Explain what results of your personality test dont suit you very well.
I dont think Im very sensitive and I dont think I dislike change.
11. Describe workplace habits of people with your personality type.
Defenders share the goal of putting good service and dedication above all else. The Defender
personality type can always be relied on for their kindness and ability to listen to concerns, and
to find ways to resolve them. Win-win situations are Defenders bread and butter, and no one
takes quite the same pleasure in finding satisfying resolutions to day-to-day challenges.
12. Explain careers that suit your personality type and explain why.
The Medical industry suits my personality type perfectly, especially since I want to be a
registered nurse one day. I believe this is because of my personality traits and my habits.
13. Explain how your personality type can help you in your desired career one day.
Altruistic and well-rounded, no other personality type is so well-suited to be of service of others.
They genuinely enjoy helping, as it gives them the chance to calm frustrations, see things
through to a practical solution, and to be thanked, appreciated, at the close of each ordeal.
