Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Assessment

Establish A Path for Life-Long Personal Development

Helping an individual understand their personality type is the first step to personal and professional growth. The MBTI® assessment helps individuals understand their strengths, their preferred working styles, and ultimately helps them see their potential. Used individually to provide self-awareness and clarity of purpose, the MBTI assessment also helps create a better understanding and appreciation between team members and colleagues – enabling them to work better together.

Benefits of the MBTI Assessment

  • Greater understanding of yourself and others.
  • Improved communication skills
  • Ability to understand and reduce conflict
  • Knowledge of your personal and work style and its strengths and development areas.

MBTI personality preferences

Through a series of questions, the MBTI assessment helps individuals identify their natural preferences in four areas of personality:

  • How do you direct and receive energy?
  • How do you take in information?
  • How do you decide and come to conclusions?
  • How do you approach the outside world?

Individuals natural preferences in these four areas sort them into one of 16 distinct MBTI personality types. Understanding these types provides clients or employees objective insight that they can use to enhance their professional and personal relationships, as well as their direction, focus, and choices.
