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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
