If you are unfamiliar with MBTI , Myers Briggs Type Indicator, it is a self assesement report which was developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Cook Briggs in the early 90’s. MBTI uses a questionnaire to indicate different psychological preferences in how people make decisions and perceive the world around them. The assessment gives an insight into how peole work and learn. It is commonly used to gain a deeper understanding of relationship-building and team development and is also used for developing positivism and achieving excellence.
