Myers Briggs helps us relate to others better
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator is a personality test which helps us to understand how we make decisions and perceive what is going on around us. It enables us to improve both working and personal relationships in a positive and constructive way. The Myers Briggs is a multiple-choice personality questionnaire which describes individuals as one of 16 personality types; it’s not an exam and there are no right or wrong types.

the MBTI describes preferences
The MBTI describes an individual’s set of preferences rather than traits, abilities or character. It achieves this by identifying preferences on each of the four dichotomies (pairs) described in the table below.
|Prefers to draw energy from the outer world of activity, people and things.||Prefers to draw energy from the inner world of reflections, feelings and ideas.|
|Prefers to focus on information gained from the five senses and on practical applications.||Prefers to focus on patterns, connections and possible meanings.|
|Prefers to base decisions on logic and objective analysis of cause and effect.||Prefers to base decisions on a valuing process, considering what is important to people.|
|Likes a planned, organised approach to life, and prefers to have things decided.||Likes a flexible, spontaneous approach and prefers to keep options open.|
The various combinations of these preferences result in 16 personality types, each associated with a unique set of behaviours and values. Sometimes even the genuine Myers-Briggs personality test does not get your type quite right. This happens about 25% of the time and the results tend to vary on one axis (dichotomy). Even so, the difference between reported type and your actual (best fit) type can be quite marked. This is why gaining feedback from an experienced, accredited practitioner is so important.
