Imagine if you could find out what others really think of you – the good, the bad and the ugly! OK, that might not sound too tempting, but if you want to develop and move forward, taking a critical look at yourself, your performance and how you’re perceived by others, is essential.

What is it?

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a tool designed to explain why and how people show specific personality preferences and what those preferences are. This knowledge can then be applied to our own personal development; identifying those areas in which we let our preferences rule our decision-making processes. This knowledge also heightens emotional intelligence, as it increases empathy and understanding as to why other people behave differently to us in certain situations. The test measures people on how they make decisions according to how they perceive the world. Respondents are rated on four different scales, the various combinations of preferences across these four scales make up the 16 individual preference types.

The benefits?

  • Increases Emotional Intelligence
  • Heightens team cohesiveness, as respondents become more empathic towards their colleagues
  • Creates a focus on personal development, as individuals have increased self-awareness
  • Significantly improves the communication skills of respondents
