Extroverts - Outside World, communicate more easily by talking, need regular interaction

How Do You Gather Information?
Sensors - Look for details and tangible concrete facts, use a step-by-step approach
Intuitives - Look at the big picture, use a random approach
"The sensing person has faith in the actual, the intuitive in the possible." - Isabel Briggs Myers
How Do You Make Your Decisions?
Feelers - Empathy, guided by personal values, harmony, persuasive and warm-hearted
Thinkers - Logical, objective, analyze and critique, firm and tough-minded
"Half our mistakes in life arise from feeling where we ought to think, and thinking where we ought to feel"
- John Churton Collins
How Do You Orient Your Life?
Judgers - Scheduled, planned, orderly, need closure, punctual and meets deadlines easily
Perceivers - Flexible, spontaneous, open to change, energized by approaching deadlines
"With a "J", there's a way. With a "P", wait and see."
- Tom Carskadon
