The basis of 16 personality type was first proposed by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung in 1921 where he described how do a normal human being take in information, how they make decision and from where people get the energy. Subsequently, the fourth dimension was added by Myer-Briggs and the famous 16 type MBTI was accepted all over the world to determine personality type of human being.

The 16 personality type model is based on the functions of opposite poles. There is a pattern within each of us by which we engage with, perceive and act on the surroundings due to our choice towards the poles each of the four dimensions. These poles are-

1. Extroversion (E) and Introversion- Our primary direction of psychological energy is focused toward either outer world (E) or inner (I) world.

2. Sensing (S) and Perception (P)- Second dimension referred to as mental function has to do with how we perceive information and what kind of information is initially attractive to us. The two poles are sensing- taking information through five senses and intuition- through interaction of abstract data and imagination).

3. Thinking (T) and Feeling (F)- Third dimension is also a mental function pertaining to our typical patterns for making decisions or judgment either through process of thinking- decision based on interest, attention to the object with logic and through the function of feeling- decision based on personal value and relational impact.

4.Judging (J) and Perceiving (P)- The fourth dimension of mind focuses on habits of external orientation and is based on either Judgment on the basis of of orderliness and decisiveness or Perceiving on the basis of new information and going with the flow.

The Judgment orientation is associated with judging mental functions-Thinking and Feeling whereas, Perceiving orientation is associated with perceiving functions Sensing and Intuition.
