Free MBTI Type Test at HumanMetrics
This is not the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) based on Carl Jung’s typology theory, but it does identify your psychological preferences for functions including Introversion (I) and Extraversion (E); Sensing (S) and Intuition (N); Thinking (T) and Feeling (F); and Perceiving (P) and Judging (J) for a total of 16 types.
A helpful website offering information about the 16 psychological types.
The Personality Page
Another website about personality types, including information about the limitations characteristic of each type.
Personality tests and tools, including the Jungian 16-type test, Enneagram, the Big Five, and others.
A freakishly accurate test with many excellent tools available for members. Taking the test and joining are free.

Following are my favorites from an entire shelf of books devoted to dream work.
Irene is one of the most expressive artists of the unconscious I’ve met. Her work inspires and intrigues me. An added plus is that she’s part of our clan.
This beautiful soul worked with me at Fiverr to resurrect The Third Eve and bring a beautiful, meaningful, and updated site. She has an intuitive grasp of what each client needs, and is a wonderful and imaginative artist who will enlarge your vision and refine your project.
Whereas many of my favorite artists are symbolic in their approach, Nick is a technically accurate marine creature artist. Since so many emblems of the psyche are water creatures, I thought I’d include the work of this fly fishing artist.
