As an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Valencia College, many students are always intrigued on how the 16 distinctive Myers Briggs personality types determine how they respond to things. The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire with the purpose of indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions. Curious to your MBTI? Take it free at:  https://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test

While the MBTI results can help you understandyour work style, it’s also a great way tool to understand your fashion style. You can use your Myers-Briggs personality to shop for your clothes and pick up necessities for the new season. The below summaries will help you find the perfect items for your wardrobe. Google the famous people with that given type to see what clothes they wore.

-Interesting note is that many Fashion Designers classify themselves as: INFJ

Myers-Briggs results show that INFJ’s are particularly well suited to careers as designers because of their ability to maintain independence, reliability, and close attention to detail under highly stressful working conditions. They also manage to keep track of many different projects and tasks while still maintaining a calm, composed exterior in the working environment. This helps them build relationships with their co-workers and clients and bring success to themselves and their brand.
