During World War II, Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Briggs decided to take Jung’s theory a bit further by creating an inventory of personality preferences.

Similarly to the dichotomy of Introverted and Extraverted individuals, the two sides of the Perceiving Preference—Sensing MBTI Types and Intuitive MBTI Types—can both use their differences to balance one another and can feel as though their differences keep them apart.

The theories of “like is attracted to like” and “opposites attract” are challenged by personality types, since they are best thought of as “complimenting” each other.

For example, the most frequent mating is between Introverted Experiencers and Extraverted Experiencers (SP Experiencers) and Introverted Traditionalists and Extraverted Traditionalists (SJ Traditionalists), which is not or opposites attracting.

Briggs and Myers designed the test with the belief our preferences evolve based on our experiences, interests, needs, values, and motivations.

This suggests personality compatibility is largely based on personal preference.
