What is MBTI?

Appreciating Difference with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI™) is a practical tool for self-awareness with applications in:

  • Team building
  • Management and Leadership
  • Dealing with Difficult People
  • Coping with Stress
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Negotiation
  • Career guidance and
  • Building better personal relationships.

It is also an invaluable tool for anyone involved in therapy, counselling and coaching, in fact any area of life where building relationships and having a better understanding of people would be useful.

People that come on our NLP Diploma comment on how identifying their natural preferences has served to explain why some areas of their life energise them whilst other areas can leave them feeling drained.

The MBTI was developed by Katharine Cook Briggs (1875-1968) and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers (1897-1980) from the ideas of Carl Jung as an instrument for understanding people through observation of their personality differences.

Today, it is the most widely used instrument for understanding personality differences, and also the most thoroughly underpinned with research and statistics. Over 70 years of research and development have demonstrated the reliability and validity of the instrument.

The MBTI is non-judgmental and allows people to gain an understanding of their differences, particularly with respect to how we take in data and give it meaning; how we make decisions, judgments, and take action; where our source of personal energy comes from and how we prefer to interact with the external world. Based on four dichotomies, the indicator produces 16 different personality types, each with its own characteristics and strengths.

The results indicate each individual’s strengths and unique gifts, while also pointing out vulnerabilities and areas for personal development..
