The BMI™ Personality Test (2016)

The BMI™ Personality Test is the most popular online personality test, taken by millions of people in over 100 countries so far!

It is a complete, scientifically validated, research-backed personality assessment brought to you by Brain Metrics Initiative (BMI™), one of the world leaders in online IQ & Personality research and assessment. It has been based on the-the typological theory by Carl Jung which was further developed and enriched by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs. However, based on our own original research, we have build upon the theoretical framework mentioned above, redefining some of its traits and aspects and we made an attempt to align it with more recent developments in the field.

The BMI™ Personality Test has been specifically designed for use in online and mobile environments. It is quick and easy to take and is accessible by anyone. The test consists of 28 Questions, takes about 3-5 minutes to complete and is designed to quickly and accurately determine your personality type.


How your Personality Type is determined

The present test is actually a self-report tool. It consists of a set of questions, each one of them being linked to one of four general dimensions and the dichotomy of personality traits imposed by these dimensions.


DIMENSIONS Dichotomies
Energy Introversion (I) Extraversion (E)
Learning Style Sensing (S) Intuition (N)
Nature Thinking (T) Feeling (F)
Strategy Judging (J) Perceiving (P)


The questions have been designed in such a way to ask you to make a choice between two poles of a continuum (forced choice questions). After you have answered all questions and completed the test, your preferences on each one of the dimensions and their dichotomies are scored and reported in the format of a four-letter type code.

However, these dimensions are actually a theoretical construct. In real life, we cannot identify such clear boundaries between the different traits and categories. Individuals are enormously complex, with personalities beyond precise measurement. This test attempts only to measure your reported preferences in a series of everyday life conditions and settings, in correlation with the four distinct dimensions and their dichotomies as these were cited above.

Hence, the final personality type is determined by how far or close to the one or the other edge of the dichotomy the aggregate of your answers lies.
