Personality Testing – MBTI Testing

What is MBTI?

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (“MBTI”) is one of the most well known and most used tools for personal and professional analysis. The MBTI is based on Carl Jung’s personality theory that each of our personalities is made up of our preferences, or how we choose to do certain things.This personality inventory was developed by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers.The MBTI® instrument helps people transform themselves—by giving them a powerful tool for improving how they communicate, learn, and work. It describes a dynamic personality system which identifies preferences rather than competencies. It provides insight into extraversion and introversion, how we bring in information, make decisions gain a deeper understanding of themselves and how they interact with other. When all of these factors are put together, it gives us clarity and insight into our own personality, as well as others.

Some of the application areas of MBTI® are:

  • Self- awareness
  • Self-development
  • Resolving personal issues
  • Enhancing interpersonal interactions
  • Improving Communication Skills
  • Problem Solving and Decision Making
  • Career Exploration
  • Understanding Parenting Styles

The MBTI® is non-judgmental and recognizes the many different ways individuals communicate, make decisions, and solve problems thus promotes greater tolerance, appreciation and understanding of self and others. Based on the responses to the assessment, a type or combination of preferences is formed, which tends to be characterized by its own interests, values, and unique gifts. The outcome from the MBTI® assessment tool highlight characteristics unique to each type and depict preferences of individuals and how they influence people’s way of interacting with others. Differences in these mental preferences lead to quite different value structures and communication styles, which can hamper mutual understanding and cooperation.The inventory is a key to both understanding the differences among types and improving communication in business and personal relationships and also useful in career building. Finding the best occupational match is one of the strengths of this tool. The profile explains how an individual’s MBTI® preferences affect what he or she likes in a career and which careers can be explored.It is also used as a basic tool in a wide variety of development and training programs focused on organizational effectiveness.
