The purpose of this site is both practical and theoretical. One of our chief aims is to deepen and clarify type theory. This includes exploring the nature of the “functional stack,” the inferior function, the cognitive functions, and the 16 personality types. Although we initially focused on the intuitive introverts (i.e., INFJ, INTJ, INFP, INTP) we have now expanded our scope to include information and personality profiles for all the types.
One of the beautiful things about typology is how readily the theory translates into practice. In this vein, this site explores the practical implications of type theory with regard to self-knowledge, personal growth, careers, and relationships. We believe that knowing and understanding your personality type can serve as a veritable road map for self-understanding, self-direction, and personal growth. Through this blog, we hope to provide stimulating and useful information that can assist you in your personal search for clarity, insight, and direction.
Here at Personality Junkie, we realize that people are at different levels in their understanding of personality typing and Jungian / Myers-Briggs typology. To familiarize yourself with the terms, language, and theoretical background used in typology circles and on this site, I encourage you to explore my latest eBook, My True Type: Clarifying Your Personality Type, Preferences, & Functions, as well as the following “coursework:”
- Typology 101: Overview, Introduction, & the 8 Preferences
- Typology 201: The 8 Functions
- Typology 301: The Functional Stack
- Typology 401: The Inferior Function
