Correlations with Myers-Briggs, Part V - Thinking


Let's 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 Thinking side of the MBTI.  Someone with a high score on Factor B probably would too.
