DIRECTIONS FOR SCORING 1. Where a box is marked with an "X", add the values (0,1 or 2) horizontally across each row. 2. There are separate values for males and females on some boxes. Use only the values for your gender when adding across a row. If you are a male, be sure to add one point to your score, as indicated by the "+1" in the sixth row.Example: 1= Male Males count this marked box as one point. 2 = Female Females count this marked box as two points.

DIRECTIONS FOR DETERMINING TYPE The MBTI instrument measures your preferences on four scales: EI, SN, TF, and JP. To determine your type, compare your two raw scores on each scale . Your preference is the one with the higher score. For example, if your raw score on the EI scale were 12 for Extraversion and 14 for Introversion, your preference would be Introversion. Write the letter of higher number in each scale below. In case of a tie ("") between E and I, write I; in case of a tie between S and N, write N; in case of a tie between T and F, write F; in case of a tie between J and P; write P.

3. Write each total in the shaded area to the right of its row. Do not count values of boxes that are blackened. If the row's total is zero, write a "0" in the shaded area.
