Myers - Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has been widely used in medical education in specialty choice, academic achievement, academic performance appraisals and management research. The objective of this review is to study the literature on the application of MBTI in health professions. In this review, it has been found that MBTI mostly used in specialty choice but with the assurance, it cannot be said that in medical education which personality type performs better, and in a specific specialty and subspecialty which personality type predicts student’s interest. In general, the MBTI does not seem to be a valuable tool in predicting specialty choice, academic performance and academic achievement in medical school and in predicting physician and other health professions job satisfaction.
