Do you ever wonder why you prefer to receive information in certain ways? Or why you prefer a certain process for decision making? Or why interacting with people might energize or drain you? The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment can help you gain new insights into how you–and those around you–prefer to approach most of your regular work and personal life functions.
The MBTI assessment will help you discover your personality type, or how you prefer to approach four primary areas:
- Favorite world: how you direct and receive feedback (Extroversion or Introversion).
- Information: how you take in information (Sensing or Intuition).
- Decisions: how you make decisions (Thinking or Feeling).
- Structure: how you approach the outside world (Judging or Perceiving).
The MBTI assessment identifies your preference in each area, then sorts those preferences into one of 16 psychological type descriptions. Identifying your own and others’ types is a useful way to better understand team and interpersonal dynamics, which can lead to:
- Better decision making
- More effective communication
- Improved stress management and prevention
- Increase setting and achieving goals
- Building stronger relationships
- Focusing on strengths
