Abstract

The present study investigated the relationship between Jung's personality types and psychometric intelligence. A total of 4758 participants completed the Critical Reasoning Test Battery 2 and the Jung Type Indicator (JTI). General intelligence was significantly correlated with Extraversion-Introversion (EI), Sensing-Intuition (SN), Thinking-Feeling (TF) and Judging-Perception (JP), indicating an advantage for Introversion, Intuition, Thinking and Perceiving. Regressing personality and demographic factors on general intelligence indicated that they account for 14% of its variance. The investigation of personality and demographic predictors of specific mental abilities (numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning) revealed that EI, TF and JP can be used to predict scores on all three mental abilities, whereas SN can be used to predict verbal reasoning only. © 2005 Individual Differences Research Group.
