Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument is the most widely used personality assessment that assists individuals in identifying and sorting their natural preferences relative to energy, perceiving information, making decisions, and experiencing life. Awareness of these components assists students to make informed decisions as they strive for greater career satisfaction and personal enrichment.

Benefits of understanding your personality type

Although the MBTI has been developed for career exploration, our personal preferences regarding how we take in information to make decisions impacts many aspects of our lives including how we:

  • Like to learn.
  • Communicate with one another.
  • Choose our academic disciplines.
  • Work together in teams and groups.
  • Navigate change and transitions.
  • Manage personal finances and health.
