What is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)?
The official MBTI® is a personality preference assessment offered only by CPP, Inc or CAPT who are the sole publishers of the instrument. To take the MBTI® , it must be offered by an MBTI® Certified Practitioner from one of these three authorized organizations: CPP, Inc, Center for Application and Type (CAPT) or American Management Association (AMA).
The MBTI® or “the Indicator® ” offers self-awareness for:
- Personal growth and development
- Personal or professional relationships
- Career exploration and search
- Executive coaching
- Team building
- Leadership development
The framework of the MBTI® builds self and professional awareness using four pairs of preferences:
Do you prefer to focus on the outer world or on your own inner world? This preference for is called Extraversion or Introversion.
Extraversion (E) ↔ Introversion (I)
Do you prefer to focus on the basic information you take in or do you prefer to interpret and add meaning? This preference is called Sensing or iNtuition.
Sensing (S) ↔ iNtuition (N)
When making decisions, do you prefer to first look at logic and consistency or first look at the people and special circumstances? This preference is called Thinking or Feeling.
Thinking (T) ↔ Feeling (F)
In dealing with the outside world, do you prefer getting things decided or do you prefer to stay open to new information and options? This preference is called Judgment or Perception.
Judgment (J) ↔ Perception (P)
