You’ve identified with these 17 types of dancers.

But aside from these general types of dancers, there is a more scientific way of gauging what kind of dancer you are.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a popular personality test that uses psychological principles based on Introversion/Extraversion, Thinking/Feeling, Sensing/Intuition, and Judging/Perceiving to predict our tendencies and behaviors in certain situations.

Exploring what kind of person you are can help you as a dancer by identifying your strengths and how to use them to your advantage.
