HOW DOES THE MYERS-BRIGGS® ASSESSMENT WORK?

The power of

personality

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment is one of the world’s most popular personality tools.

It’s simple, yet powerful, and introduces a common language for referring to and discussing personality preferences that play an essential role in our everyday life. The MBTI assessment and its process of self-discovery give you a framework for understanding yourself and appreciating differences in others.

Understanding yourself and others provides a unique perspective and opens up possibilities—in your job, your relationships, your life.

The Myers-Briggs assessment helps you identify your preferred way of doing things

in four key areas

Your natural preferences in these four areas sort into one of 16 distinct patterns of behavior called personality types.

Knowing your Myers-Briggs personality type gives you a much better idea of what makes you tick, and how that translates into all aspects of your life.

DIRECTING AND RECEIVING ENERGY
2
TAKING IN INFORMATION

Personality type matters

IN COMMUNICATION
Some people are naturally inclined to focus on the big picture and talk about big ideas. Others focus on details, facts, and what’s right in front of them. By understanding how people take in and express information, you can speak to any subject at hand in a way that resonates more effectively with them.

IN CAREERS
Finding the right career path can be an exhausting and frustrating pursuit, but the Myers-Briggs personality assessment can help. By knowing yourself, recognizing the needs of those around you, and identifying what environments you might naturally thrive in, your approach to career development becomes that much easier.

IN RELATIONSHIPS
Maybe your significant other pushes your buttons, or you have a difficult time seeing eye to eye with a friend or family member. Are you saying the same things, but in different ways? Or maybe you’re looking to create balance in a way that fulfills you more. Your personality preferences might have something to say about this.

IN DECISION MAKING
Many people approach decision making in terms of direct outcomes and implications (e.g., if I go back to school, it will cost this amount). However, the implicit outcomes, and those that affect you at your core, aren’t always so obvious (e.g., will this class format be the right fit for me?). We can help you uncover them.
