What if you had the secret code to the universe?
You likely have heard of the Myers-Briggs personality assessment that gives you your personality type in the form of four letters, such as ISTJ or ENFP.
However, unless you’ve taken an in-depth “Step II” Assessment and worked with a Myers-Briggs certified practitioner, you have probably only scratched the surface of this science and research validated tool, the most widely used personality inventory in the world.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), when administered correctly, can provide an incredible depth of insight and understanding that has far-reaching implications for:
What is not widely known is that ethical use of the MBTI instrument requires that the results be delivered with interactive feedback and that only you can decide what your “best-fit” type is, regardless of the results of the instrument. This is particularly reassuring for those that find assessment questions hard to answer because they lack in nuance.
What is also not widely understood is that MBTI measures natural and innate personality preferences and does NOT measure behavior, skill or competence. The benefit of understanding your own and other’s natural preferences is that these preferences reflect what naturally energizes you.
MBTI also gives you a framework for understanding how environment - family of origin, social, educational, and professional culture, etc. - influences behavior and often guides people “out of preference.” High-functioning, talented and ambitious professionals are generally good at “flexing” out of preference, but doing this too much is draining and can lead to burnout.
