Completing, Interpreting and Applying the Myers-Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI)

This classic seminar focuses on explaining, administering, interpreting, and applying the Myers-Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI), a tool first developed by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers to define 16 distinct personality types. Because each personality type prefers specific communications styles, leadership styles, and has different decision-making processes (among other characteristics), the MBTI is administered to more than 2 million people each year, including most Fortune 100 companies, as a way to help employees discover their most productive working environment and work more effectively together as teams. After learning about the MBTI personality types, seminar attendees will complete the MBTI assessment, interpret their results to determine a "best fit" MBTI personality type, and participate in multiple interactive exercises to highlight similarities and differences between personalities.
