The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality test

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is the most widely used instrument for understanding normal personality differences. Through this exploration, differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication are understood and more amenably resolved.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator helps people to become appreciative and tolerant towards other preferred styles of communication and patterns of behaviour that are the result of personality types different from their own.

What can the MBTI personality test be used for?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test assists individuals to understand their preferences for taking in information and making decisions, as well as how a person prefers to focus their attention and how they prefer to live their life.

Because the assessment explains basic patterns in human functioning, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following:

Individual development

The MBTI can help a person develop insight into their own strengths, relationships with others, and areas for development.

Team development

The MBTI helps teams better understand individual differences, identify areas of strength and weakness, improve communication and enable better team building.

Management development

The MBTI supports leadership and management development by helping them to understand their style and the impact that has on others, identifying areas and opportunities to develop.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment test takes about 25 minutes to complete.
