Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an internationally trusted personality assessment that assists people to gain insight about themselves and how they interact with others. Use of this assessment can help individuals improve how they communicate, learn, and work. It provides a powerful framework for building better relationships, driving positive change, harnessing innovation, and achieving excellence. The MBTI assessment makes Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type both understandable and highly practical by helping individuals identify their preferences in four areas.
The MBTI Step I (Form M) identifies an individual’s 4-letter personality type, consisting of four basic preferences:
Extraversion – Introversion
Sensing – Intuition
Thinking – Feeling
Judging – Perceiving
Combinations of these preferences result in 16 distinct personality types, and provide a common language for how we interact with the world and each other. The insights gained provide a framework for tackling a broad range of issues that can be applied in both professional and personal situations.
The MBTI Step II (Form Q) delves beyond the 4-letter type framework proposed by Step I, and uncovers the many different facets of type that make each individual unique. These deeply personalised insights are perfect for coaching, action planning and building cohesive teams.
