According to Quartz (via Reuters) an Sachs is using the The SHL Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) which measures "32 personality characteristics relevant to performance", a whole lot more than MBTI.

Wanna go for your own test. Try out the Psych Central MBTI (link ).

I think that more important than MBTI classification is whether you are a person with an internal or an external locus of control. You can test yourself, free of charge
