Finally, let’s discuss the final letter used in MBTI. So, are you a perceiver, or a judger? The best way to discern what you are is to answer this:
Am I an information gatherer, or a decision maker?
Perceivers, at their worst, are extremely indecisive. Perceivers primarily perceive the world from an information gathering perspective. They soak up whatever has their attention, but won’t necessarily act on it. Judgers, on the other hand, are better with decisions. Perceivers are more likely to:
- be late to things
- be disorderly
- be forgetful
- be scattered
- be relaxed
Judgers are more likely to
- be hard-asses
- be on time (and stress greatly when they aren’t)
- care about what other people think
- be clean cut
- be clean. Period.
- be active leaders (not that perceivers don’t make good leaders- they just tend to not actively pursue this role)
This function is pretty straightforward. Now we can move onto functions.
