About the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® Assessment
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an assessment that measures psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The basic idea is that knowing your personality type, and those of others, will help you interact more effectively with colleagues and better identify your own strengths. In educational institutions, the test is often used to help identify potential career fields.
The Myers-Briggs test is based on Carl Jung's theory stating that people experience the world using four main psychological functions: sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking. The test itself was designed to measure the differing psychological preferences that people generally perceive the world around them and make decisions based on those perceptions. The four main functions can be simplified as follows:
• Extraversion (E) vs. Introversion (I)
• Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N)
• Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F)
• Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P)
The Myers-Briggs test consists of a series of questions, and your answers determine what type of personality you have and provides general assumptions about how your personality type is best suited for success in terms of careers, communication, etc.
The test is commonly used in many different business-oriented settings, including:
• Leadership development
• Team building
• Screening and interviewing employees
• Career selection
• Personal development
