An Application Tool for the MBTI Instrument.

The Psychological Type Community

It is not the purpose of a psychological typology to classify human beings into categories; this in itself would be pretty pointless. Its purpose is to provide a critical psychology which will make a methodological investigation and presentation of the empirical material possible
(Jung, 1976).

The HPS Psychological Type Community is dedicated to the theoretical development, understanding, ethical use, resource development and global (and cosmological) applications of the original work of Carl Jung and expansion of his work by others, such as Isabel B. Myers.

Psychological Type

Numerous attempts have been made over the last 2500 years to catagorize human behavior into elaborate typology systems. Psychological Type has evolved primarily from the work of C. G. Jung and takes an expanded approach--16 Types (see Jung's Function-Attitudes Explained to see why 16 Types rather than eight) compared to temperament theory. One of the most widely used forms of psychological Type is the varriation of Jung's model developed by Isabel B. Myers and Katherine C. Briggs and measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator instrument. As psychological Type continues to grow in popularity, both in the United States and globally, the need for more user-friendly resources becomes paramount.
