Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment has helped millions of people worldwide gain insights about themselves and how they interact with others—and improve how they communicate, learn, and work. It provides a powerful framework for building better relationships, driving positive change, harnessing innovation, and achieving excellence. The MBTI assessment makes Carl Jung's theory of psychological type both understandable and highly practical by helping individuals identify their preferences in four areas.
This powerful tool is often mistakenly referred to as the Myers-Briggs test or the personality test. It's important to know ... It's not actually a test at all.
Why It's Popular
The Myers-Briggs assessment is the world’s most trusted personality assessment because it is:
- Easy to grasp, insightful, and thought provoking
- Reliable and valid, backed by ongoing global research
- Highly flexible and adaptable, useful for virtually all ages, stages, and developmental needs
- Backed by excellent support and guidance at every level, including ours.
