Myers-Briggs Type Indicator


Definition: the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a personality type assessment which measures psychological preferences of people (how they perceive the world and make decisions).
The MBTI assessment was derived from Jung's theory of psychological types (1920s) and developed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. According to Jung, there are 4 cognitive functions by which we experience the world: sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking, each having 2 orientations (extraversion or introversion).
MBTI is based on these 8 combinations and is applied in coaching, team building, management development, market segmentation, etc.
Comparable to Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument and DISC Assessment.
