The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI)
The MBTI can help an individual understand personality and the attributes of personality that makes them a unique person. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and your potential areas of growth. The MBTI ® inventory can help individuals understand how they interact with others and are perceived by others. The results measure an individual’s preference along four areas:
- Where you prefer to focus your attention and get energy
- Your preferred way of taking in information
- Your preferred way of making a decision
- How you orient yourself in relation to the outer world
People tend to develop behaviors, skills and attitudes associated with their type. When we use our preferred methods, we are generally at our best, feel most competent, natural and energetic. Taking the MBTI ® allows you to develop an understanding of your personal traits and become aware of the interrelationship between self and occupational choice. This knowledge about yourself can help you make better-informed decisions and career choices.
When taking the MBTI – approach the questions and choices with a mind-set free from outside influence. Try to answer the questions as you really are, not who you want to be or how others want you to be. Remember there are no right or wrong answers!
