Unsure what college major to pursue? Here’s a cool way to see what you might like. TheÂ Myers-Brigg Type IndicatorÂ (MBTI) is a personality inventory tool used to determine one’s personality on four scales: extraversion (E) vs. introversion (I), sensing (S) vs. intuition (I), thinking (T) vs. feeling (F), judging (J) vs. perceiving (P). Often used in professional settings, there is some controversy on it’s scientific validity. That said, it’s a good starting point if you’re stuck on picking a major — most people who take it find it eerily accurate!
