MBTI

  • Explore the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

     

    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® (MBTI) is an instrument that can help you understand personality and preferences that influence your decision making style. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and your potential areas of growth. The MBTI ® inventory can help individuals understand how they interact with others and are perceived by others. The results measure an individual's preference in four areas:

    • Where you prefer to focus your attention and get energy
    • Your preferred way of taking in information
    • Your preferred way of making a decision
    • How you orient yourself in relation to the outer world

    People tend to develop behaviors, skills, and attitudes associated with their type. When we use our preferred methods, we are generally at our best, feel most competent, natural and energetic. Taking the MBTI ® allows you to develop an understanding of your personal traits and to become aware of the interrelationship between self and occupational choice. This knowledge about yourself can help you make better-informed decisions and career choices.
