About This Quiz

The Myers-Briggs personality test is one of the older personality tests out there and is based on Jungian psychology that, outside of the Myers-Briggs test, isn't used very often in psychology these days. Still, the test is widely used to determine likely aptitudes based on personality traits, and there are Fortune 500 companies that use it in the hiring process. So, either it still has merit, or it's just an important factor to reckon with because it can determine your future. Like many other personality tests, it divides people into groups based on the nature of their impulses in different settings. Are you the kind of person who feels the need to be in control, or are you happy to follow? Are you okay with long periods of boredom, or do you need constant stimulation?

While many of the factors expressed in the Myers-Briggs test can be applied to any branch of the military, we have found that our version of the test can be used to determine more specifically in which branch of the US Military one should enlist. The Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy pride themselves on their differences, and we have proven conclusively that those differences are not skin-deep. Take our Myers-Briggs test and we will tell you in which branch of the US Military you should enlist!
