If you have ever had a difficult relationship or problems with a co-worker, you could benefit from learning the ideals behind the Myers-Briggs assessment test. The Personality Types app ($2.99) uses the Myers-Briggs philosophy to help identify your personality type.

As long as you stay true to yourself when answering the questions, each form is accurate. I received the same result consistently.

According to Personality Types, I’m an ENFJ. That means I’m a judging extrovert who senses and feels what is going on with other people. Yup, this app nailed me.

The app allows you to compare your personality to another person. For instance, I always have trouble working with certain co-workers, but by identifying their personality type, I was able to look up quick tips on how to deal with them.  

Fights with my boyfriend became more productive, too. Apparently, his personality prefers more of a cautious approach to my proactive one.  

Besides such relationship benefits, it’s fun to use Personality Types to refer to people in letter combinations. But be warned: it annoys them if they don’t know what you are taking about. What does that say about me?
