Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
Myers-Briggs is a well-known profiling system used throughout the world. The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.
MBTI looks at personality type based on four fundamental dimensions of individual difference, to create 16 personality type profiles:
- Extraversion (E) – Introversion (I)
Where you prefer to get or focus your energy
- Sensing (S) – iNtuition (N)
The kind of information you prefer to gather and trust
- Thinking (T) – Feeling (F)
The process you prefer to use in coming to decisions
- Judging (J) – Perceiving (P)
How you prefer to deal with the world around you
Four of these eight preferences (E or I, S or N, T or F, J or P) make up your MBTI type, also called psychological or personality type.
The four letters that make up your personality type can help you to understand yourself and your interactions with others. As you act according to your type preferences, so you create a particular approach to the world, to information, to decisions, and to other people.
The theory of psychological type says that people with different preferences naturally have different interests and views, behave differently, and are motivated by different things.
Awareness of differences between types can help people understand and value other people who think and act in distinctive ways. Awareness of your type helps you to understand your own personality traits and biases, your drives, stresses, triggers and strengths within a group or team. Being aware of your own profile helps stimulate creative thinking and provides you with a unique perspective.
Profile reports can be customised to focus on various areas, such as leadership or career change, depending on how you wish to use the information.
