The Majors Personality Type Inventory (MajorsPTI) is used to evaluate personality type and provide a psychological type code. It assesses psychological type by measuring the individual's self-reported level of similarity with various phrases or word descriptions.
The MajorsPTI reports preferences on the four familiar type code dichotomies, with two opposing preferences on each dichotomy:
- I/E: Introversion/Extroversion
- N/S: Intuition/Sensing
- F/T: Feeling/Thinking
- P/J: Perception/Judgement
Available in both hard-copy and online formats, the MajorsPTI takes just 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
