MBTI Step 1

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Step I helps people to understand normal healthy differences in human interaction. Because it gives people information about their preferred style of working and interacting with others the MBTI is used to give individuals some of the following benefit

  • Greater self-awareness

  • An understanding of ones own strengths

  • The identification of leadership development goals

  • Relationship and conflict management skills

  • Recognition of stressors and an ability to manage stress in yourself and others

  • An ability deal with change, and lead others through change

  • Improved communication

MBTI typing is based on the work on Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, a contemporary of Freud in the 19th century. This theoretical work was further developed by the mother and daughter team of Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs-Myers, who elaborated Jung’s theory to produce the Type Indicator that we have today. After more than 50 years of research and development the current MBTI is the most widely used instrument for understanding normal personality differences.

MBTI feedback at the Step I level will help you identify your unique gifts, your natural strengths and your potential areas for growth. Most importantly it will also help you appreciate people who differ from you, the team you work in and your leadership.
