Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N)
The Bridge Personality Test, widely used in business psychology for more than 15 years, uses Carl Jung's theory to analyze employees across four dimensions: Extraversion/Introversion, Sensing/Intuition, Thinking/Feeling, and Judging/Perceiving. These dimensions form the foundation for identifying the 16 distinct Jungian personality types. Offering both individual assessments and subscriptions, the test delivers immediate, detailed reports on employee personalities, enhancing team dynamics and personal development.
The Jung dimension: Sensing (S) versus Intuition (N)
In the 16 Jung Types, the second crucial preference pair is Sensing (S) against Intuition (N). These reflect the divergent mental processes used for absorbing information—contrasting perspectives in observation.
Individuals favoring Sensing give priority to information that's tangible and concrete. Their focus lies on the present, with an emphasis on distinct facts and details. Their perception is primarily through the five senses (valuing experience).
Those leaning towards Intuition concentrate more on identifying patterns and future possibilities in the data they gather. Their focus extends to potential outcomes, viewing the overall context and linking the facts. While they also utilize their senses, their perception leans on insights and instincts (valuing inspiration).
Everyone utilizes both Sensing and Intuition preferences at times. Generally, there's a tendency to depend more on one, but recognizing the importance of both is crucial. Jung posited that assimilating information through both Sensing and Intuition enhances our "perceptions."
