the MBTI Type

Filed under: personality — cepi @ 1:31 pm

MBTI Type adalah salah satu test personality yang dikembangkan oleh Isabel Briggs Meyers dan ibunya, Katharine Briggs. MBTI ini intinya mengelompokkan pribadi ke dalam karakteristik yang berbeda-beda menjadi 16 type personality.

Salah satu manfaat terbesar yang didapat dengan mengenali type MBTI kita, dan juga mengenali MBTI teman kerja, atasan, keluarga, dan lain-lain, adalah kita dapat memilih cara terbaik untuk berinteraksi atau mempengaruhi mereka.

Jadi, Myers mengenali bahwa terdapat 4 hal utama yang membedakan satu orang dengan orang lainnya (diambil dari situs Personality Pathways, exploring personality type & its application), yaitu:

1. Energy orientation, sumber energi seseorang: Introversion atau Extroversion.

Keterangan untuk Introversion adalah sebagai berikut:

Those who prefer Introversion draw their primary energy from the inner world of information, thoughts, ideas, and other reflections. When circumstances require an excessive amount of attention spent in the “outside” world, those preferring Introversion find the need to retreat to a more private setting as if to recharge their drained batteries.

Sementara keterangan untuk Extraversion adalah sbb:

In contrast, those who prefer Extraversion are drawn to the outside world as their elemental source of energy. Rarely, if ever, do extraverted preference people feel their energy batteries are “drained” by excessive amounts of interaction with the outside world. They must engage the things, people, places and activities going on in the outside world for their life force.

2. How people “Perceive” or take information: Sensing or Intuition.

Keterangan untuk Sensing adalah sbb:

Those who prefer Sensing Perception favor clear, tangible data and information that fits in well with their direct here-and-now experience.

Dan keterangan untuk Intuition adalah:

In contrast, those who prefer Intuition Perception are drawn to information that is more abstract, conceptual, big-picture, and represents imaginative possibilities for the future.

3. How people form “Judgements” or make decisions: Thinking or Feeling.

Keterangan untuk Thinking adalah:

Those who prefer Thinking Judgment have a natural preference for making decisions in an objective, logical, and analytical manner with an emphasis on tasks and results to be accomplished.Sedangkan keterangan untuk Feeling adalah:

Those whose preference is for Feeling Judgment make their decisions in a somewhat global, visceral, harmony and value-oriented way, paying particular attention to the impact of decisions and actions on other people.

4. Extraverted Orientation, relates to which mental preference one relys upon in dealing with/relating with the Outside World: Judging or Perceiving.

Keterangan Judging adalah:

Those who prefer Judging rely upon either their T or F preference to manage their outer life. This typically leads to a style oriented towards closure, organization, planning, or in some fashion managing the things and or people found in the external environment. The drive is to order the outside world. While some people employ an assertive manner, others “ordering touch” – with respect to people – may be light.

Sedangkan untuk Perceiving adalah:

Those who prefer Perceiving rely upon either their S or N preference to run their outer life. This typically results in an open, adaptable, flexible style of relating to the things and people found in the outside world. The drive is to experience the outside world rather than order it; in general lack of closure is easily tolerated.

Setelah melalui serangkaian pertanyaan test, saya dinyatakan sebagai INTJ : Introversion, iNtuition, Thinking, Judging. Garis besar dari setiap karakter:

1. Introversion: mengambil energi dari dalam, lebih suka punya teman sedikit tapi dalam daripada punya teman banyak tapi ‘dangkal’. Di ujung hari, lebih suka menghabiskan waktu sendiri atau hanya bersama teman dekat saja, daripada beramai-ramai dengan orang lain. Bersama orang lain hanya akan membuat saya capek, karena energinya tersedot ke luar dan bukannya terbawa masuk.

2. iNtuition: dapat mengambil gambaran ‘umum’ atau ‘the big picture’ atas sesuatu, dan bukannya suka pada hal-hal yang mendetail.

3. Thinking: mengambil keputusan atas dasar logika, bukan atas dasar perasaan.

4. Judging: orang yang suka keteraturan, sangat rapi, kalau melakukan sesuatu harus ada planning, tidak bisa grusa grusu tanpa rencana.

Dari semuanya, sepertinya yang paling kuat pada diri saya ada di Introversion dan Thinking. Untuk iNtuition dan Judging, saya rasa saya masih so-so, karena pada intinya saya suka hal-hal yang detail, dan juga saya bukan orang yang terlalu rapi. Kamar saya berantakan, tapi saya suka kalau rapi (asal bukan saya yang melakukannya hehehe).

Rasanya kok saya lebih suka pengelompokan secara MBTI ya. Kemudian, ada tekniknya lagi kalau mau mempengaruhi orang-orang dengan tipe MBTI tertentu. Tapi rasanya kepanjangan deh kalau dibahas di sini hehe..
