The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument is a personality assessment designed to be useful in everyday life. It helps people identify four basic personality preferences that combine to form their individual MBTI personality type. Understanding your MBTI results can help you understand and appreciate the natural differences in the ways people think, communicate, and interact—differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding.
Drawn from Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types and refined through decades of research, the MBTI instrument has been used for more than 70 years to establish greater self-knowledge and interpersonal understanding among people of all ages and backgrounds. It has been translated into more than 20 different languages for use around the world.
