Myers Briggs Type Indicator MBTI®

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) is a self-report questionnaire designed to  make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life. MBTI® results identify valuable differences between normal, healthy people, differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication.

Taking the MBTI® inventory and receiving feedback will help you identify your unique gifts.  The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and your potential areas for growth.  It will also help you appreciate people who differ from you. Understanding your MBTI® type is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.

After more than 60 years of research and development, the current MBTI® assessment is the most widely used instrument for understanding normal personality differences.  Because it explains basic patterns in human functioning, the MBTI® tool is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following:
