Determine Your Social Media Personality

August 14, 2012

In 1921, psychologist Carl Jung published Psychological Types. His theories presented in this book helped formulate a psychometric test called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. This test was used to categorize the psychological types of humans into 16 major divisions.

Still in use today, the results determine whether test takers tend toward certain character traits, such as introversion (I) vs. extroversion (E) or thinking (T) vs. feeling (F). The metrics produce an acronym per individual. For example, “ISTJ” is for an Introvert-Sensing-Thinking-Judging person.

The infographic below, based on the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, details the qualifiers for each of the test’s characteristics. It also predicts the psychological types most likely to participate on specific social networks. More extroverts reported using Facebook than introverts, for instance. People with inclinations toward Feeling spend more time browsing and interacting with people on Facebook, rather than those who tend toward Thinking.

According to the infographic, what type of social media personality are you?
