Welcome to MBTI Personality Classification AI Challenge!

The aim of this challenge is to design a model to predict the Myers-Briggs Personality Type (MBTI) based on the given post data.

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (or MBTI for short) is a personality type system that divides everyone into 16 distinct personality types across 4 axis:

  • Introversion (I) – Extroversion (E)
  • Intuition (N) – Sensing (S)
  • Thinking (T) – Feeling (F)
  • Judging (J) – Perceiving (P)

Leading to total 16 classes.

The dataset consists of 3 files:

  • TRAIN.csv (training data)
  • TEST.csv (test data for prediction)
  • sample_submission.csv (sample submission format)

The "TRAIN.csv" consists of the following attributes:

  • idx
  • type (Target attribute)
  • posts

The "TEST.csv" consists of the data to be predicted and has the following attributes:

  • idx
  • posts

For final submission format, please refer to "Submission Guidelines".

The final submission must include:

output.csv (single file having results for "TEST.csv").

The first row should correspond to the column names "idx" and "type".
