MBTI

Myers Briggs Type Indicator

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) instrument was developed by Isabel Briggs-Myers and her mother Katherine Cook Briggs to validate Carl Jungs work on Psychological Types which helps us to understand individual differences among people. Jung’s view was that we shouldn’t try to be what we’re not. He emphasised the importance of celebrating and using our strengths whilst at the same time appreciating the different strengths of others.

After more than 50 years of research and development the current MBTI instrument is the most widely used tool for understanding personality types and preferences as well as appreciating differences.

MBTI can be used on a 1-2-1 basis or with teams for:

  • Increased self-awareness and self-acceptance
  • Improved engagement when embarking on change by understanding motivations and drivers and helping people cope more effectively during the transition
  • Enabling you to appreciate the impact your behaviour has on others.
  • Enhancing leadership skills by helping you to assess your personal preferences compared with those of the people you lead and manage
  • Improving team effectiveness
  • Career planning and career development
