MBTI Workshops®

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®

The MBTI® is one of the most widely used and empirically researched and validated personality instruments in the world.  Many people find it useful as a way of understanding themselves, as well as their commonalities and differences with others.

It assists people to understand more about themselves and how they interact with others thereby enhancing communication which in turn increases the opportunity for improved performance and organisational productivity.

The MBTI® is an assessment that aims to measure personality preferences along four different dichotomous dimensions;

Where do you get your energy?

Extraversion (E) energised by the outside world of people, activity and things

or

Introversion (I) energised by the inner world of thoughts, feelings and reflections

How do you take in information?

Sensing (S) tend to focus on information gathered through the five senses

or

Intuition (N) tend to look for patterns, meanings and possibilities in the information they receive

How do you make your decisions?

Thinking (T) tend to make decisions based on objective facts and principles

or

Feeling (F) tend to make decisions based on personal values and feelings

How do you deal with the outer world?

Judging (J) tend to prefer a more planned and structured lifestyle

or

Perceiving (P) tend to prefer a more flexible and spontaneous lifestyle

When people are self-aware, they can realise more of their potential.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment provides an easy-to-understand framework for improving self-awareness.
