This time we'll look at how the 16 scales correlate to the scale on the Myers-Briggs. A positive correlation means that as the score on one scale goes up, the score on the other scale goes up also. A negative correlation means the opposite.

For example, someone with a low score on Factor A is likely to show up on the Introverted side of the MBTI. Someone with a high score on Factor B probably would too.

For Introversion on the Myers-Briggs, here are the correlations from the 16PF:

- Factor A (Warmth): Negative
- Factor B (Reasoning): Positive
- Factor C (Emotional Stability): Negative
- Factor E (Dominance): Negative
- Factor F (Liveliness): Negative
- Factor G (Rule-Consciousness): Positive
- Factor H (Social Boldness): Negative
- Factor I (Sensitivity): Positive
- Factor L (Vigilance): Positive
- Factor M (Abstractedness): Positive
- Factor N (Privateness): Positive
- Factor O (Apprehension): Positive
- Factor Q1 (Openness to Change): Negative
- Factor Q2 (Self-Reliance): Positive
- Factor Q3 (Perfectionism): Positive
- Factor Q4 (Tension): Positive

The factors with the greatest positive correlation to Introversion are Q2, N, and G A. Those with the greatest negative correlation are H, F, and A.
