Would you like to learn about your personalty?
Would you like to be able to know why you choose to do the things the way you do them?
Do you often look at other people and wonder how they can do things the way they do them?
Would you really like to understand yourself better and enjoy your life?
Then the MBTI can help you do that.
The MBTI is not a TEST. It is an Inventory and as such helps you take stock of what you have and how you can use what you have to grow and develop. We all approach the world from our basic inbuilt preferences. We engage with the world with our particular take on it. Even though we all do it differently there is no right or wrong - There is only my way. The MBTI helps each us understand how we approach the world from a normal healthy perspective and as we understand this we learn to work with ourselves and enjoy the journey to growth and development.
Learning about the MBTI can help us understand how we communicate and how others communicate and from this we can learn to use these communication styles to deal with misunderstanding and conflict.
The insights you will gain from answering the questions on the MBTI will help you understand who you are to yourself and how you interact with the world. There is no right or wrong. There is you and your style and in recognising and accepting this you become more of yourself each and every day.
Jung's Theory of Psychological Types and the MBTI® Instrument
This excerpt is taken from Chapter 1 of the 1985 MBTI® Manual: A Guide to the Development and Use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®. It was based on the first version of the Manual by Isabel Myers and written by Mary H. McCaulley, Ph.D. and founding President of CAPT. The Manual was published by CPP, Inc. The 3rd Edition of the Manual was published by CPP, Inc. in 1998.
"The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung (1921/1971) understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the way individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment."
