Myers Briggs Type Indicator – MBTI Step I

As one of the world’s leading personality tools, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator MBTI ® instrument is a tool, that provides both individuals and teams with an understanding of not just their own but others’ personality style. By understanding and recognising the differences between personality types, groups and individuals are able to work together more effectively in a number of ways that can help in improving communication and reducing conflict.

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator MBTI® Step I is a questionnaire that is completed prior to a personal feedback session. It will reveal characteristics unique to each personality type that are detailed here. Between the feedback session and the questionnaire it is possible to find a “Best Fit” and this will show how people interact with others on a daily basis and how they deal with all kinds of different and sometimes difficult situations. Some of the benefits of using MBTI are;

  • People find the process enjoyable, the results enlightening and the framework easy to work with.
  • Promotes a constructive approach to individual differences.
  • Impressive and prestigious reputation built over 60 years.
  • Available in a wide range of languages and adapted to be sensitive to cultural differences.
  • Suitable for employees at all levels, including board level

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator MBTI® Step II is a more in depth electronic profile, that breaks each of the four preferences in Step I  down further into five distinct facets.

We are qualified Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioners and have had experience using MBTI in the UK, Europe and throughout the US and Asia for both training sessions and on a one to one basis. Available in multiple languages, it is one of the few tools that is truly universal and has subtle differences in the region specific versions that make it great for an international organisation or team. We are able to administer Step I and the less commonly used, but more detailed, Step II Instrument.

Poor communication is cited as one of the biggest issues on most company satisfaction surveys yet few people will admit they could improve their communication skills. We find that working with the Myers Briggs preference tool, people start to realise their communication skills can be quickly and dramatically improved.

We would be happy to discuss how to use the MBTI in your organisation to improve communication and personal effectiveness. Although we are based near London our team work across the UK and further afield as required.
