The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire that indicates differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The original MBTI was constructed by Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers in 1962. Each person is classified in four categories: introversion/extraversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perception. The Enneagram test is a more recent personality test which categorizes each person into one of nine personality types. In this research project, we focus on the Enneagram test done by Dr. Joseph B. Howell. Students from psychology courses were given paper copies of the MBTI and the Howell-Enneagram test as a class activity. I then scored them according to the author’s scoring procedures. The goal of the research is to see if there is an overlap between participants answers for the MBTI and the Howell-Enneagram Test.
