The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment was designed to help better understand how people relate to others, and how they can benefit from this knowledge in everyday professional and personal life.
The power of personality
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment is one of the world’s most popular personality tools. It’s simple, yet powerful, and introduces a common language for referring to and discussing personality preferences that play an essential role in our everyday life. The MBTI assessment and its process of self-discovery gives a framework for understanding and appreciating differences in others.
Understanding yourself and others provides a unique perspective and opens up possibilities—in your job, your relationships and your life in general.
