You've heard the questions before ... What's your type? Are you an introvert or extrovert? Are you a schedule-driven person or do you prefer spontaneity?
These questions refer to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a personality assessment, based on the work of Carl Jung. The MBTI has been in use for more than 50 years and has been taken by millions of people world wide.
The assessment measures preferences for where your energy comes from (Extroversion / (Introversion), how you take in information (Sensing / iNtuition), how you make decisions (Thinking / Feeling), and how you interact with the world (Judging / Perceiving).
How can this help you?
Knowing your type can lend lots of insights into your own behaviors and into your relationships, especially those with your spouse/partner, children, boss, co-workers, etc. In fact, many organizations use the MBTI to help improve interpersonal dynamics and understanding within departments and groups. Questions about type sometimes even show up in job applications or in interviews.
This increased self-awareness can give you a greater understanding of your strengths, your interactions with others, your decision-making and more. And it can be useful in improving communications, resolving conflicts, and making career decisions and so much more.
And, your type can change over time. So, if you took the MBTI some time ago, it might be time to take another look and get a personalized interpretation of the results through a one-on-one in depth session.
