What is the MBTI®

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) is an extremely popular personality measure worldwide.  It was developed by Isabel Myers and Katherine Briggs and is based on C. J. Jung's Theory of Type.  It is a powerful and versatile indicator of personality type.  The MBTI® is widely used for individual, group and organisational development.
It provides a constructive framework for looking at how people prefer to take in information, make decisions and live their lives.

The MBTI® instrument is an exceptionally versatile tool that provides individuals and teams with a powerful understanding of their own and others' personality styles.


How will the MBTI® help my team?

MBTI® is based on preferences and allows true insight into not only individuals, but also the way in which they interact in teams and how others perceive us.

MBTI® was designed by a mother/daughter partnership who wanted to test out theories first identified by Carl Jung, who suggested that people had different preferences which give them a different perspective on situations.

We know that differing perspectives and attitudes are highly relevant to understand how individuals and organisations interact and the needs of people in relation to motivation and leadership.  By understanding each other (and ourselves) more fully we see:

  • Improved Communication
  • Better Cooperation
  • More Effective Teams

How will the MBTI® help me?

By using the MBTI®  personality assessment tool to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and of others, you will be more effective in your relationships, your work, and your life. You will gain insights and understanding that will both empower you and enrich you in every aspect of your life.

You will understand

  • why is it that some things tire me out and others don't?
  • what do I need to be energised?
  • why do I see possibilities but others can't?
  • why are some people task focused and others people focused?
  • why do I always procrastinate?
  • why do I feel stressed when I don't know what is happening?
