Some correlates of the Jungian typology: personal style variables

C. G. Jung’s Typology (21) is a richly described and, to the writer, intuitively reasonable method of categorizing individuals. One of its type-pairs, extraversion-introversion, has become a controversial, but apparently lasting, concept in the psychological literature. (The words H extraversion 11 and "introversion" have also been taken into popular culture, to denote sociophilia and sociophobia, a meaning more circumscribed than that originally intended by Jung.) The other type-pairs, thinking-feeling and sensation-intuition, have received minimal research attention despite offering, in the writer’s view, as much potential for research as extraversion-introversion. Sufficient research (some of which is reported briefly at the end of this chapter) exists to provide evidence of the potential utility of extraversion-introversion as descriptive categories. A -small body of research by Myers (26) and by MacKinnon (In Myers, 26) suggests that this potential utility extends to the Typology as a whole. It was felt that the potential utility of the Typology has become actual to the extent that a variety of personality characteristics can be shown to be both theoretically and empirically related to it. The aim of this research was to seek further relations of this sort.
