Measurement of Self-Perceptions of Jungian Psychological Types.
Melancon, Janet G.; Thompson, Bruce
Psychological type has proven useful to myriad educational applications, including career counseling and as an assessment of learning styles. Previous studies have investigated the use of word-pairs to measure type dimensions, but prior results have consistently suggested that Judging-Perceiving (JP) preferences require sentences to measure more complex JP dynamics. The present study involved 422 subjects who completed a word-pair measure augmented with items consisting of sentences. The improved psychometric properties of scores involving both measurement strategies suggest that JP dynamics are complex, and must include more complex item forms.
