1. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
2. The Big Five Personality Model

2. ‘Thinking’ people find reasons to support their feelings while ‘Feeling’ people tend to rely on their emotions and feelings to give a reason to their points and thoughts.

4. Judging and Perceiving
1. ‘Judging’ people like structures and orders while ‘Perceiving’ type of persons like flexibility.
2. ‘Judging’ people are not that much spontaneous as ‘Perceiving’ ones.
