Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) Assessment

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument and the dozens of expert resources that have been designed to enhance its effectiveness offer a practical yet powerful set of tools for lifelong growth and development. After more than 50 years, the MBTI instrument continues to be the most trusted and widely used assessment in the world for understanding individual differences and uncovering new ways to work and interact with others. More than 2 million assessments are administered to individuals—including employees of many Fortune 500 companies—annually in the United States alone. The MBTI family of tools reaches across the globe in 16 languages to help improve individual and team performance, nurture and retain top talent, develop leadership at every level of an organization, reduce workplace conflict, and explore the world of work. Begin with the MBTI Form M instrument, which identifies the four basic type preferences, or Form Q, which provides a more richly textured picture of type and behavior.

This most-highly validated personality preference indicator identifies your strengths, clarifies leadership style, explores a preferred work environment, your decisionmaking and communication style. It continues to be used globally to highlight areas for development. We offer both Step One and Step Two results and a variety of MBTI supportive material.

The most widely used personality inventory in the world, the MBTI® instrument provides an accurate picture of a person's personality type. The MBTI® instrument determines preferences on four dichotomies:

  1. Extraversion-Introversion (describes where people prefer to focus their attention and get their energy-from the outer world of people and activity or their inner world of ideas and experiences)
  2. Sensing-Intuition (describes how people prefer to take in information-focused on what is real and actual or on patterns and meanings in data)
  3. Thinking-Feeling (describes how people prefer to make decisions-based on logical analysis or guided by concern for their impact on others)
  4. Judging-Perceiving (describes how people prefer to deal with the outer worldin a planned orderly way, or in a flexible spontaneous way

Combinations of these preferences) result in 16 distinct personality types. Understanding characteristics unique to each personality type, provides insight on how they influence an individual's way of communicating and interacting with others. The MBTI® Step II (Form Q) instrument drills down and details 20 facets of the preferences for more in-depth personality type understanding.
