In all the world, for better or worse, each one of us holds an inborn tendency for one of the 16 personality profiles. Lots of people can have some of each trait, but there will also be a tendency towards being more prone to only one type indicator.
You likely already know if you are more reserved than outgoing, or the other way round. Being shy does not necessarily mean you are an introvert, just as being overly loud does not always translate into you being an extrovert. The other indicators are meant to help you understand if you are primarily sensing or intuitive, thinking or feeling, or judging or perceiving.
Your personality type can be a helpful aid when deciding on a career field. For example, an INTP individual tends to be thoughtful and analytical. These are good skills if you are thinking about being a scientist, psychologist, or engineer. Albert Einstein and Carl Jung were two notable individuals with INTP personalities. Another example is the ESFJ individual. This personality type tends to be warm and caring, and they have a genuine interest in helping other people. These operating skills, work well for teachers, religious leaders, and social workers. Desmond Tutu, Elton John, and Whitney Houston are high profile individuals with ESFJ personalities.
