Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Assessment Package

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a short, self-report questionnaire used to measure and describe people’s preferences for how they like to get information, make decisions and orient their lives.

Designed to make Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life, the MBTI instrument provides a versatile measure of personality that looks at eight personality preferences people use at different times. The current MBTI tool is the most widely used instrument for understanding individual personality differences.
