What's Your Personality Profile? Take the Myers-Briggs!

November 12, 2009

In a recent New York Times article author Nancy Ancowitz recalls learning she was an introvert after taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

She learned that, “introverts perfer to think before they speak, while extroverts tend to think as they speak.”

The MBTI is a questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how you perceive the world and how you make decisions.

Ancowitz learned to attach her name to her accomplishments,

“strike a balance between the culture of hubris that dominated Wall Street and my own natural inclination toward modesty…Succumbing to the modesty meant being relegated to the margins as a worker bee instead of the more privileged ranks as a core contributor.”
