Myers-Briggs Personality Test

A free personality check designed to reveal more about yourself.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was constructed by Katherine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers early last century as the result of observing marked differences between personalities between Katherine’s son-in-law and other family members. This led to extensive research and results that are still used today.

What is MBTI?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment is a psychometric tool that provides insight into what makes who you are. It’s one of the most popular personality assessments available today and is widely used in business, educational and counselling environments to develop self-awareness, reduce miscommunication and understand personal needs more effectively.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator helps us understand your personality preferences in the following key areas: 

How do we use it?

Ignite Dating uses MBTI to better understand your personality preferences, behaviour and communication habits.

We conduct the test as part of our interview process either verbally or via an online self-assessment. The test will generate a 4-letter score, for example, “ENTJ” denoting Extroversion, Intuition, Thinking and Judging. This score is then added to your Ignite profile and will help our Matchmakers find your perfect partner!
