Welcome to Personality Junkie! Ever since our founding in 2009, we have aimed to provide transformative insights and expert analyses through the lens of type. Viewing self-awareness as an essential precursor to personal growth, we strive to illuminate psychological realities that readers may have failed to see or understand on their own. We believe that knowing and understanding your type, as well as your type’s functions, is critical for a number of reasons including:
- Clarifying your strengths, identity and life purpose
- Understanding your path to growth, including how less conscious elements of your personality (e.g., the inferior function) may disrupt authentic development
- Recognizing how your beliefs, values, interests and motivations may be shaped and influenced by your type
We invite you to journey with us as we explore the deeper realms of the psyche, where the potential for true growth is made possible through the power of insight and awareness. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help you grow in your understanding of yourself.
The most direct and expeditious route to knowing and understanding your type is through our eBooks. My True Type is aimed at helping you clarify your type and deepen your understanding of your type’s preferences (e.g., E, I) and functions (e.g., Ni, Fe). The 16 Personality Types provides in-depth personality descriptions and analyses for each of the 16 types. It also explores important topics such as type development and the inferior function. The INTP and The INTP Quest dive deep into the INTP’s mind and personality, as well as their foremost existential concerns and challenges.
