  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®

    Posted on November 15, 2016 by in Self development, Staff Development

    Identify your unique gifts using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MTBI®) – Helen tells us more

    Learning about, becoming a qualified practitioner in, and using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® literally changed my life and the way I communicate. This is one of the main reasons why I am such an advocate of this method.

    It is one of the few models of personality that describes differences positively.  There are no better or worse types to be; each type has its strengths and possible pitfalls.  As you may have heard me say ‘not good, not bad, just different’!

    Taking the MBTI® and receiving feedback will help you identify your unique gifts.  The information enhances understanding:

    • Of yourself
    • Your motivations
    • Your natural strengths
    • Your potential areas for growth

    It will also help you appreciate people who differ from you, and enhance communication with them.  Understanding your MBTI® type is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.

    The MBTI® is a self-report questionnaire plus feedback from a qualified practitioner designed to make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life.  MBTI® results identify valuable differences between normal healthy people – differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication and even conflict.

    Uses and Applications

    The MBTI® instrument can help you to do the following:

    • Learn about yourself, and understand where you fit into a framework that describes personality differences in positive and constructive ways.
    • Appreciate important differences between people and understand how different types can work together in a complementary way.

    The MBTI® tool is greatly effective and has many applications, amongst those relevant to the workplace include:

    • Improving working relationships
    • Building effective teams
    • Improving communication
    • Developing Leaders and Managers
    • Making use of problem-solving strategies
    • Helping manage change
    • Understanding reactions to stress
