It is a personality test where personality is defined along four different axes (extroverted/introverted, intuitive/sensing, feeling/thinking, perceiving/judging), and your personality is coded with four letters depending on which end of each axis you are at. See http://typelogic.com/ for an overview of the types. The test itself consists of questions you answer yes or no to, and each shifts the balance along one of the axes a little bit.
Since the families of Meyers and Briggs are currently on a copyright crusade to rid the net of all "their" information, the FAQ (http://metalab.unc.edu/personality/faq-mbti.html) has been deleted. There are tests out there, but you have to do a websearch for them.
Myself, I regard me as XNTX - the X vary quite a lot over time.
