Use this form to create a generic Jung personality profile.
If you have the book, Please Understand Me II, by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates, use this form to create a profile based on your score from the Keirsey Temperament Sorter II (or the Keirsey Temperament Sorter).
To fill out the form, subtract 1 from your highest score in each pair of opposites. If you came out as an indeterminate ("X") type for any of the pairs, create two personality profiles, one for each type.

The theory behind Jungian archetypes is that we all have, to varying degrees, preferences in how we like to learn things and make decisions. This theory uses two pairs of opposites to describe these preferences:
Jung's theory further proposes that one of these four functions is stronger than the others, and that the strongest function is directed either outward (Extraverted) or inward (Introverted). Hence in his seminal work General Description of the Types he describes eight Archetypes. We can denote each of these with a two-letter abbreviation.
Thus the abbreviations for the eight Jungian archetypes are Fe, Ne, Se, Te, Fi, Ni, Si, and Ti.
Isabel Myers and her mother, Katharine C. Briggs, extended Jung's theory and codified their ideas into what is known as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI®. This theory uses the terms 'Judging' when referring to the decision-making functions (Feeling and Thinking) and 'Perceiving' when referring to the learning functions (iNtuition and Sensation).
Referring to the strongest function as the 'Dominant,' they realized that the supporting or 'Auxiliary' function also plays an important role in a personality.
The Myers-Briggs theory recognizes that for Extraverted types the Dominant function is directed outwards and for Introverted types the Dominant function is directed inwards. The MBTI® uses four pairs of opposites to describe a personality:
These four pairs of opposites form the basis of the popular four letter abbreviations, such as ENFJ and ISTP, that refer to each of the 16 types.
In practice people's personalities often do not fit cleanly into one of these 'tiny little boxes,' because these preferences are not a matter of black and white. Many people actually come out right in the middle of certain preferences, and therefore may effectively fall into more than one category. Additionally, the specific characteristics of the various preferences work together in unique ways.

The Keirsey Temperament Sorter (II) consists of 70 questions. This results in an even number of questions for each pair of opposites, which allows people to come out as an indeterminate ("X") type.
The Groja Program cannot draw an image when one of the pairs is indeterminate, therefore it requires the score from only 66 of these questions to draw your Groja Image.
If your type is indeterminate for two pairs of opposites, create four personality profiles, and so forth....
The images that groja.com draws are based on the results of a personality quiz that determines which Jungian archetypes correspond to your personality.
