Which one are you? Personality types of successful people infographic!

Have you ever wondered what makes some more successful than others? Could it be luck, opportunity or perhaps a specific character trait?

And if so, how do you know if you share (or can learn to acquire) the same trait? Based on the Myers-Briggs personality types, this infographic uncovers the personality types of some of the world’s most successful people, including Obama, Spielberg and Beyoncé.

Developed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a questionnaire that uncovers your psychological preferences in how you perceive the world and make decisions.

MBTI is based on the Carl Jung’s theory that there are four principal psychological functions by which we experience the world (sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking) and that one of these four functions is dominant for us most of the time. It uncovers whether, for example, you’re an introvert or extrovert, or are more likely to judge than perceive.

This infographic also looks at the profession of the successful people in each category, to help you spot whether certain personality types are drawn to (or succeed better in) particular jobs or industries.

So, what’s your personality type? And which famous person do you share it with? (You can read more about MBTI and the 16 different personality types here.)
