What is the Myers-Briggs (MB) Type Indicator
The Myers-Briggs is a tool to understand and discover personality type. It was developed by Katharine Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers, and the personality inventory has four categories – Introversion vs. extraversion, intuition vs. sensing, feeling vs. thinking, and perspective vs. judging. You can take this interesting test which would reveal your personality type, and then decide your style based on that.
The Myers Briggs personality type ISTJ is logical, introvert and like functionality rather than glamour. Choose classic styles which are structured if you are an ISTJ.
Empathetic, loyal and conscientious, ISFJ type personalities are sensitive to others needs and feelings. They like to blend in, so their style is usually modest and unassuming, allowing them to fit in, rather than stand out.
People who are the INFJ type, are adaptable, flexible, idealistic, intuitive and curious. They like unconventional outfits but not something which is totally out of the way. They choose their clothes carefully, which reflects their personality.
Being self-sufficient and independent, they choose fuss-free clothes which are comfortable and functional. So a sweatshirt is the favorite item of this type rather than a stylish, little dress.
ISTPs are spontaneous, great problem solvers and open to new things. They don’t mind changing their style if they find something which resonates with them. Does it sound like you?
ISFP girls are friendly, quiet, non-disruptive and sensitive. They love soft tones in colors and easy-going designs are perfect for them.
