People and things (Extraversion or "E"), or ideas and information (Introversion or "I"). Facts and reality (Sensing or "S"), or possibilities and potential (Intuition or "N"). Logic and truth (Thinking or "T"), or values and relationships (Feeling or "F"). A lifestyle that is well-structured (Judgment or "J"), or one that goes with the flow (Perception or "P"). Extraversion and Introversion: The first pair of styles is concerned with the direction of your energy. If you prefer to direct your energy to deal with people, things, situations, or "the outer world", then your preference is for Extraversion. If you prefer to direct your energy to deal with ideas, information, explanations or beliefs, or "the inner world", then your preference is for Introversion. Extraversion involves interacting with people, taking an interest in broad topics, and tending to act first then think. Introversion involves concentrating on a few, deep issues, and thinking things through before acting. Sensing and Intuition: The second pair concerns the type of information/things that you process. If you prefer to deal with facts, what you know, to have clarity, or to describe what you see, then your preference is for Sensing. If you prefer to deal with ideas, look into the unknown, to generate new possibilities or to anticipate what isn't obvious, then your preference is for Intuition. The letter N is used for intuition because I has already been allocated to Introversion.

Sensation looks at facts, takes a practical approach and tends to be interested in clear, detailed information. Intuition looks at potential and possibilities, and tends to be interested in what is not yet known Thinking and Feeling: The third pair reflects your style of decision-making. If you prefer to decide on the basis of objective logic, using an analytic and detached approach, then your preference is for Thinking. If you prefer to decide using values - i.e. on the basis of what or who you believe is important - then your preference is for Feeling. Thinking involves using principles, taking a detached, objective view as an onlooker, analysing and criticising. Feeling involves using values, taking a personal, subjective view as a participant, valuing and appreciating. Judgment and Perception: The final pair describes the type of lifestyle you adopt. If you prefer your life to be planned and well-structured than your preference is for Judging. This is not to be confused with 'Judgmental', which is quite different. If you prefer to go with the flow, to maintain flexibility and respond to things as they arise, then your preference is for Perception. Judgement structures and controls life, making decisions and establishing closure or stability. Perception retains flexibility, inquiring, being spontaneous, keeping options open and waiting to see what develops.

    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.
