Myers Briggs Personality Assessment
  • Discover how your personality preferences are similar and different than others
  • Learn to communicate with personalities different than your own
  • Understand stress triggers and solutions unique to your type
  • Apply your personality type preferences to career planning

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an assessment which can help individuals understand their own personality preferences and those of others resulting in increased communication and decreased stress.

For all sessions, participants pay a fee per report and pay facilitator labor per hour.

For individuals or couples, a report is emailed and interpreted in a 1 hour teleconference.

For groups, reports are delivered in person and interactive exercises designed to be between 2 and 4 hours depending on group size and objectives.

Clients receive a password to take the assessment online, then attend one of the following required debrief sessions, where they receive an individual interpretive report:

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Step I (Form M)
Through discussion and interactive exercises, participants learn the four basic Myers Briggs dichotomies (opposites) that describe personality preferences for getting energized, taking in information, making decisions, and organization/time management. The four basic MBTI dichotomies are:

  • Extravert (E)/Introvert (I)
  • Sensing (S)/Intuition (N)
  • Thinking (T)/Feeling (F)
  • Judging (J)/Perceiving (P).

Maximum Class size= 50

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Step II (Form Q) –(note: Step I not required.)
Recommended for new participants and those who have taken the Myers Briggs previously and were unsure of one of their letter preferences. The Step II breaks each of the four letter dichotomies into five additional sub-preferences. For example, the Extravert/Introvert dichotomy is further subdivided as follows:

  • Initiating or Receiving
  • Expressive or Contained
  • Gregarious or Intimate
  • Active or Reflective
  • Enthusiastic or Quiet

MBTI for Working Teams
In addition to a preliminary overview of MBTI and an individualized report (either Step I or Step II) , participants receive a team report which shows how their preferences compare to the team norm and potential areas of team conflict. Interactive exercises are customized to help team members understand how they can be most effective in communicating and decision-making given their diverse personality preferences. After discussion, the team develops a plan of action.

Temperament
A Subset using two-letters of the MBTI.

Temperament session can be taken stand-alone or combined with any of the above sessions. The four temperaments are:

  • SJ-“Guardian” Dependable, Traditional, Loyal
  • SP- “Artisan” Adventurous, Action-oriented, Spontaneous
