The MBTI® is often referred to as a personality test because it measures four major ways of behaving. Whether in the realm of your professional or personal environment, the MBTI® is a fascinating tool to understand how you interact with others, and why others interact with you, the way they do.
This easy, straightforward questionnaire asks you questions to understand your lifestyle preferences, which then determines which of the sixteen different MBTI® types you may be. Just as how a picture paints a thousand words, so can understanding the theory behind this instrument. There are numerous MBTI® reports so we work with you in determining the right fit.
The four scales of preferences from which the questionnaire is derived are: Where do you get your energy source? How do you learn new information, and take in ideas? How do you make decision, and come to conclusions? And, how do you organize your life?
From the scales, type is determined by the intermixing of the following letters:
- E (Extroversion) or I (Introversion)
- S (Sensing) or N (Intuition)
- T (Thinking) or F (Feeling)
- J (Judging) or P (Perceiving)
You, no doubt, know what each of the above labels words mean but with the MBTI®, you have to start fresh, disregarding the dictionary definitions of extroversion, introversion, sensing, intuition, thinking, feeling, judging and perceiving. Think of them as labels to truly receive the MBTI® theory for application.
While there are numerous reports, the most common reports are the Form M Interpretive and the Form Q Interpretive.
The report debrief with a CPP certified MBTI® facilitator explains how to read through your report and to self-identify. And like any facilitated debrief, you are asked to draw on experiences and examples to understand your type. Attending an MBTI® program as a group or team is extremely helpful in seeing the behaviors that fall outside of your personal preferences. Since gathering as a team is not always feasible, One Leadership Group offers individual debrief sessions catered to your level of engagement.
