Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)


Why take a personality assessment?

The primary driver of human behavior is personality. A personality assessment is a great way to gain personal insight and insight into others around you, without any judgement.  All personalities are equal, but they are not the same, and an assessment can help us understand the differences and learn how to use them constructively.   An understanding of personality can result in improved leadership, better communication and enhanced teamwork.  

Why take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is the most popular personality assessment in the world, taken by millions of people every year.  Once you have your results, you will be able to talk about personality with friends and family who have also taken the MBTI® (of course, only if you want to).

Is the MBTI® recognized?

Not only is it the oldest and one of the most widely used personality assessment in the world, but hundreds of studies over the past 40 years have proven the MBTI® instrument to be both valid and reliable.

Is the MBTI® right for me?

If you want a detailed personality assessment, the MBTI® is probably the right assessment for you.  It will identify your personality as one of  16 personality types, which is often shown in what is called a "type table."

Additionally, with the Step 2 assessment, you can have 20 facets provided to give you even further granularity.  All of this will be explained to you in simple to understand terms by you coach or training facilitator.
