The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was used to analyze the personality types of speech-language pathologists and communication sciences and disorders students. The results are organized by 4 dichotomies: extroversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving. The study analyzed the individual dichotomies as well as personality outcomes as a whole. The study was designed to discover trends within each data point both separately and jointly, aiming to further research on the idea of personality types changing over time. Results suggest that similarities and differences are present in between both data points. The results are discussed in terms of their possible impact on the idea of personality changing over time.
