MBTI

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) provides one of the most researched, accurate and reliable tools for opening up the ‘People Puzzle’.

 

Proven to work trans-culturally the MBTI identifies and explains the basic building blocks of human personality, and the dynamic interactions between those building blocks.

An expert in the presentation and interpretation of the MBTI, David can open up a new world of insight, experience and knowledge for you and your organisation. Helping you to overcome the obstacles of ineffective communication, inter-personal conflict, and lack of shared vision.

By learning to communicate with people according to their behavioural preferences you can inspire confidence, trust, and receptivity. By appreciating the differences and similarities in people you are more likely to embrace difference as something positive rather than a cause of conflict, and enable others to do the same.

People are different but they are predictably different. The MBTI opens the door to more effective communication, and allows you to modify your language and behaviour to manage people well.

With over twenty years of experience using and presenting Personality Profiling Tools to individuals and audiences, David can assure you of time well-spent and focused on delivering value to you and your organisation.

All Personality Type models seek to explain the observable differences in the normal behaviour of ordinary people in their everyday circumstances, helping them to recognise, understand, and respond to difference in a positive way.

Developed by Isabel Briggs-Myers, and based on the theories of Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), the MBTI identifies four mental functions that all people share in common, together with four orientations. The mental functions are presented in pairs. The first pair relates to how we gather information about the world around us – Sensing/Intuition. The second pair concerns the criteria by which people make decisions based on the information they have gathered – Thinking/Feeling. The orientations indicate how a person is energised, either by the outer world of things and people, or the inner world of thoughts and feelings – Extraversion/Introversion. Finally, Judging/Perceiving relates to a person’s preferred lifestyle.

So we have four pairs or dichotomies indicated by the first letter of the word, except for Intuition where the second letter is used because I already indicates Introversion, thus:
