The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) provides a useful measure of temperament by looking at eight temperament preferences that all people use at different times. These eight preferences are organized into four bi-polar scales. When a candidate takes the indicator, the four preferences that he/she identifies as most like himself/herself (one from each scale) are combined into what is called a “type”.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator:
- Describes rather than prescribes; it feeds back to you in organized form the preferences a candidate indicated when answering the questions
- Describes preferences, not skills or abilities
- Says that all preferences are equally important
- Is well documented and researched with hundreds of scientific studies conducted over a 40-year period
Fox Valley Technical College also offers related training and coaching services to better understanding MBTI results and the impact of type preferences on workplace communications & relationships.
