The Myers Briggs model of personality is based on 4 preferences.
There are two questionnaires that can help you find out your Myers Briggs type:

Over the fifty eight years since its inception in 1943, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator has evolved and been perfected through continual research and development of ever more accurate questions. The subtle enhancements to recently released "M" edition of the inventory was the product of a landmark normative study involving thousands of people and over two years of work by a team of experts in the field of psychometrics.
Since it is considered a breach of professional ethics to administer an MBTI without person-to-person follow-up verification by a qualified practitioner, none of the "type" inventories on the Web are the "real thing." Yet the Web is replete with "inventories" that purport to measure psychological type (like the David Kiersey type-temperament indicator)! Besides only being approximations of the real thing, I am aware of none that have met commonly accepted psychometric standards for reliability and validity. Those that come most close to meeting such standards are "research instruments" such as those authored by Steve Myers and Terrance Dunniho.
