The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment has helped millions of people worldwide gain insights about themselves and how they interact with others—and improve how they communicate, learn, and work. It provides a powerful framework for building better relationships, driving positive change, harnessing innovation, and achieving excellence. The MBTI assessment makes Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type both understandable and highly practical by helping individuals identify their preferences in four areas (see below).

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality assessment used by large corporations and government agencies, as well as by small businesses and non-profit organizations. It was developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Briggs, based on Carl Jung’€™s theory of psychological types. The mother-daughter team sought to better understand the variances between personality types and thereby improve communication and interaction between the various types.

This assessment presents a series of questions which are used to determine an individual’s preferences in four areas:

  • Extraversion (E) vs. Introversion (I): Is the individuals focus concentrated outwardly or
  • Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N): Does the individual process information as a sequence or
  • Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F): Does the individual make decisions objectively or using
  • Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P): Does the individual use a planned or spontaneous approach
