What is MBTI?

Extensive research over many years into personality types has shown that there are many personality related indicators that can impact upon the way in which people interact with one another.

Understanding these factors, linked with the knowledge and research of personality types, provides the framework for delivering effective programmes that engages with individuals to get the best out of their learning and personal development.

From an individual perspective: When you understand your type preferences, you can approach your own work in a manner that best suits your style, including how you manage your time, problem solving, best approaches to decision making, and dealing with stress.  Knowledge of type can help you deal with the culture of the place you work, the development of new skills, understanding your participation on teams, and coping with change in the workplace.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is one tool that can support this and may help
us to become more self aware and better able to understand others. Katherine Briggs,
and her daughter Isobel Briggs Myers, took Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type
and developed it. MBTI is the result of fifty years of research and development into understanding normal personality differences. The theory considers the different
ways we:

  • focus our attention
  • take in information
  • make decisions
  • deal with the outer world
MBTI and Change

In managing change each personality type has a different approach, namely:

  • Those who find change is fun and good – want to change
  • Those who may like idea but want to think about it
  • And those in between – change things not working so long as it is practical
So throw away phrases such as ‘don’t throw the baby out with the bath water’ and ‘if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it’ have a real resonance to people of certain personality types.






An understanding of MBTI, can be applied in work and social settings to get the best from yourself and from others:

  • better meetings
  • tolerance and understanding
    of others
  • managing conflict
  • powerful presentations
  • better communications
  • increased team performances
  • management of change
  • problem solving
