Jung Type Indicator (JTI)

The Jung Type Indicator (JTI) assesses a person's psychological type using the categories first proposed by the Swiss Psychologist C.G. Jung. This theory of human typology can be traced back at least to the work of the Greek physician Hippocrates. This early typology contained within it the seeds of modern typological thinking. Psychologist Eysenck proposed four levels of personality description. At the lowest level are the person's specific responses to specific situations.

The second level of description consists of habitual responses; those responses we typically make when similar situations occur.

At the third level, these habitual responses are organised into personality traits. The highest level consists of the organisation of these personality traits into a general type. The JTI measures this highest level.

The JTI measures what Jung described as the two basic attitudes:

  •     Introversion
  •     Extraversion.

In addition, Jung suggested that there are four Psychological Functions:

  •     Thinking
  •     Sensing
  •     Feeling
  •     Intuiting

Reports and interpretations provide candidates and clients with information which can be used for developmental and other purposes. The JTI is the ideal tool for examining personal style. It takes just 10 minutes to complete and is extremely reliable. The JTI provides information on how a person typically deals with information and the role they are likely to play in a team. Thus the assessment can play a key part in many developments, team building and guidance programmes. Since the JTI is a broad-based analysis of personality, it should not be used in selection.
