The 16 Personality Factors: Correlations with Myers-Briggs, Part II - Introversion

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
