Personality typing is a useful tool. It's especially noteworthy for its effectiveness in the areas of progression and self-development. Knowledge and applying the assumptions of personality type can be a strong and satisfying experience, if it is used as a tool for discovery, rather than as a technique for putting people into boxes, or as a justification for conduct. The sixteen personality types, which are most common, are established on the well- known research of Carl Jung, Katharine C. Briggs, and Isabel Briggs Myers. Carl Jung first created the hypothesis that individuals each had an emotional type. He alleged that there were two basic kinds of "functions" which human beings used in their lives: how we receive information (how we "perceive" things), and how we produce decisions. Carl alleged that within these two groups, there were two conflicting ways of performing. We can perceive information through our senses, or our instinct. Individuals can make decisions centered on impartial judgment, or biased feelings.
