2.Psychological Screening Inventory (PSI): The PSI is usually built on the Carl Jung’s theory of different types of personalities. Jung found and observed recognizable and repeated patterns in the behaviour of the people are linked to the conscious perceiving of the world, and the way we take our decisions about the world. The pattern it evolves is very similar to the more famous Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test; it is sometimes also called the mini MBTI. The MBTI measures how the people generally behave whereas, the PSI measures that how people would love to behave like.
