What is MBTI?

MBTI, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, is a powerful personality type assessment. It gives you an understanding of where your preference lies when it comes to:

  • Where you prefer to get or focus your energy
  • The kind of information you prefer to gather and trust
  • The process you prefer to use in coming to decisions
  • How you prefer to deal with the world around you

Knowing your preferences helps you to understand yourself and others better.

How do I use it?

  • In personal coaching to provide a deep understanding of why you operate the way you do. And how communication with others, with different personality types, might become more effective
  • In development programmes and when working with teams, for reasons similar to those with individual coaching. With teams in particular it can boost more effective communication amongst the team members
