The 16 personality types and the Gita

I feel like I want to explore the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-bhagavatam in terms of the 16 personality types. It doesn't mean that my explanation or understanding will be perfect. But, the 16 personality types was created on the basis of Carl G Jung's book: Personality types. The 16 personality types were created on the basis of Carl G Jung's theory about personality types. He felt that a universal fact was that every human possessed 8 functions. He felt that these 8 functions needed to be balanced in relation with it's opposite. He said that the psychological accuracy of the Upanisads is amazing.

The Upanishads are the essence of the Vedas. And the Srimad-Bhagavatam is the essence of the Upanisads. And the Bhagavad-gita is the essence of the Srimad-Bhagavatam.

I want to appreciate the 16 personality types in terms of what is taught and mentioned in the Bhagavad-gita and the Srimad Bhagavatam.
